VMware VI 3

Server virtualization, as the name implies, has been categorized by the industry as a largely server-related phenomenon. However, Taneja Group sees this as short sighted. Server virtualization and the infrastructure transformation it begets to a virtualized, consolidated, centrally-managed infrastructure has far reaching ramifications to the areas of data protection, disaster recovery, and high availability.

VMware acquires Zimbra, Filling Out vCloud Strategy

In our view, VMware has been disciplined about looking forward: building the next-generation datacenter stack, open and cloud-enabled, while not overly concerned about winning a particular battle at one tier of the existing stack.

Hypervisor Density: Yes, It Still Matters

I recently spoke about the report's objectives and findings with Bruce Hoard over at Virtualization Review. He’s been trying to gauge how much of a dent Hyper-V is making in VMware’s market share, and how Hyper-V performs against its hypervisor rivals.

Your new storage vendor might be VMware

VMware’s latest releases suggest it has serious intentions about encroaching on storage vendors’ turf, which might be a wakeup call for the data storage industry. Five or so years ago I wrote about the impact server virtualization and VMware in particular was going to have on data storage. To me the picture was clear: VMware enabled features that were traditionally considered the purview of storage. It was also blurring the line of demarcation between server and storage, and clearly entering into space that storage vendors had assumed for decades was theirs. Little did I know how true my premonition would prove to be.

How to Protect Your Small or Midsized Business with VMware Virtualization

Business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) planning is becoming a critical mandate for all companies and especially for small and midsized businesses, where the cost of downtime and/or lost data can be devastating. If you have implemented virtualization, you already know how it can save you money on IT costs via server consolidation. But are you aware that the benefits of virtualization extend beyond IT cost savings, and that virtualization can also keep your business running through many types of planned and unplanned IT outages?

By leveraging BC/DR solutions from VMware, you can turn your investment in virtualization into an investment in your business. And protecting your business is easier than you might think. Backed by the virtualization industry’s largest IT and developer community, collection of BC/DR best practices, and network of channel partners, many IT managers are surprised how quickly they are able to deploy VMware BC/DR solutions in production, and in the process, demonstrate an ROI that goes well beyond mere cost reduction.

Building the Virtual Infrastructure with DataCore SANsymphony-V

There's a ball and chain hanging on your virtualization projects - and it's that pesky storage stuff. Storage that isn't flexible, can't adapt to changes, is wrapped with poor provisioning practices, and where sheer physicality and lack of abstraction seem to get in the way of every virtual server task. There's no secret in the fact we think storage virtualization can set the virtual infrastructure free, but let's take a look at one vendor's product, and how it tackles some of those issues in the Hyper-V infrastructure.

VMware storage issues may be solved by your array

Anybody who has struggled with configuring storage for VMware virtual servers will be happy to hear help is on the way -- the solution to your problems may be hidden in your array. From the moment server virtualization burst onto the scene nearly a decade ago, it has created significant challenges for data storage managers. And based on recent Taneja Group research, many of those challenges are far from being overcome.
