Who Will Automate the Cloud?

About five years ago, policy-based orchestration and datacenter automation—two of my favorite topics—were enjoying a renaissance due to rapidly growing virtualized environments. Quickly, most of the interesting start-up technology was acquired either by the big datacenter management gorillas or by the hypervisor makers.

Riverbed and EMC Deliver Capacity-Optimized Cloud Storage for Backup, Recovery, Archiving, and DR

Many innovative enterprises are turning to cloud storage to meet their data protection demands. Cloud storage promises an elastic “pay-as-you-go” storage pool for backups and archives, which not only reduces expensive up-front backup disk and tape costs, but eliminates the need to maintain them off-site. This paper explores the factors that are driving the move to cloud storage and then introduces a solution from Riverbed and EMC that enables organizations to perform cloud backup and replication at LAN-like performance that is as reliable and secure as local disk or tape at a lower cost.

Silver Peak Dials Up Private Cloud WAN Performance

Hot on the heels of Riverbed’s cloud-focused announcements earlier this month, Silver Peak is keeping the pressure on with its new virtual WAN optimization appliance, the VRX-8, which accelerates multi-site replication and disaster recovery for “big data” among enterprise datacenters (or, in 2010 parlance, private clouds).

Virtual Desktops in the Cloud: Yes, You Can Bring Your iPad

Every day, another CEO walks into a datacenter and says, “put my stuff on my iPad.” Instead of waiting for the datacenter to come up with a cost-effective combo of desktop virtualization technologies, many companies will find their users heading to the cloud with or without them.

Before Taking Off For the Cloud, Check Your Virtual Engines

In March, McKinsey published a discussion document, Clearing the Air on Cloud Computing, claiming current cloud services offerings aren’t cost competitive for larger enterprises. I can’t argue the numbers, but the cart might be getting in front of the horse.

Is your storage infrastructure ready for the cloud?

The cloud will change the way we integrate and use storage services. Don't be distracted by big vendors building a big data center stack, it's not about that at all.

Is cloud-enabled DR ready for prime time?

Have you experienced an unplanned outage lately? Based on our conversations with IT administrators, there’s at least a 25% chance you have. Those that have experienced an outage recently may no longer be in the IT trenches. But if you’ve survived a painful outage, there’s a good chance you found out the hard way that a good number of the servers under your management have a critical role to play. Even a minor outage that renders one of those critical servers, or even a file, unavailable for a few hours can be extremely costly, if not devastating.

Think Technology: Data Center Infrastructure Unlocking I/O: Clearing The Path To The Cloud

Pages 54-57: Interview with Jeff Byrne and Jeff Boles, Senior Analysts at Taneja Group. Although server and storage virtualization are key enabling technologies for delivering Data Center Infrastructure on-demand and on-tap, we believe the achievement of the Cloud vision of true flexibility and agility is still a distant dream in most environments today. We believe virtual machine environments place unique demands on network infrastructure. Although virtual machines can simplify the physical server infrastructure, they add complexity to the LAN and SAN fabrics within the data center. We believe most issues preventing data centers from achieving their Cloud vision today center on the network, and more specifically at the interfaces between the server and the network and storage – a.k.a the I/O. In this white paper focused on I/O, we highlight some innovative and emerging solutions to these problems and the companies leading efforts to pioneer and evangelize these solutions.
