There’s no denying that hyperconverged infrastructure is hot right now, promising to dramatically shift the way infrastructure is procured, deployed and managed. But questions remain. Is it actually addressing the real-world concerns faced by real-world customers? What are the catalysts driving organizations to evaluate hyperconvergence and are they finding that the results match the hype when they actually do deploy?
Get the fast facts from this SimpliVity eBook based on research from ActualTech Media, segmented and re-analyzed just for EMEA.
An examination of those organizations using web services successfully and find that they have chosen their networking infrastructure carefully and taken advice about future upgrade strategies.

You can migrate live VMs between Intel processor-based servers but migration in a mixed CPU environment requires downtime and administrative hassle
A study commissioned by Intel Corp.
One of the greatest advantages of adopting a adopting a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment is being able to easily migrate the virtual machines that run your critical business applications—within the data center, across data centers, and between clouds. Routine hardware maintenance, data center expansion, server hardware upgrades, VM consolidation, and other events all require your IT staff to migrate VMs. For years, one powerful tool in your arsenal has been VMware vSphere® vMotion®, which can live migrate VMs from one host to another with zero
downtime, provided the servers share the same underlying architecture. The EVC (Enhanced vMotion Compatibility) feature of vMotion makes it possible to live migrate virtual machines even between different generations of CPUs within a given architecture.
This white paper is a business briefing for C-Level Executives on how integrating a range of technologies - including unified communications, service oriented architecture, virtualization and cloud computing - can transform the productivity and profitability of large enterprises.
DigitalOcean commissioned Cloud Spectator to evaluate the performance of virtual machines (VMs) from three different Cloud Service Providers (CSPs): Amazon Web Services, Google Compute Engine and DigitalOcean. Cloud Spectator tested the various VMs to evaluate the CPU performance, Random Access Memory (RAM) and storage read and write performance of each provider’s VMs. The purpose of the study was to understand Cloud service performance among major Cloud providers with similarly-sized VMs using a standardized, repeatable testing methodology. Based on the analysis, DigitalOcean’s VM performance was superior in nearly all measured VM performance dimensions, and DigitalOcean provides some of the most compelling performance per dollar available in the industry.
Over the last several years, DigitalOcean has built out its feature set in a way that has taken it from a provider of cheap and simple virtual machines (VMs) to a legitimate public cloud alternative, most recently adding support for Redis and MySQL to its managed database services. As its services evolve, it continues to experience healthy growth and maintain popularity among the independent developer audience. Over the past two years, DigitalOcean has accelerated the velocity of its feature development, looking to better meet the needs of a business audience. By emphasizing a simplified feature set, pricing structure and user experience, even as it expands its competitive footprint in the shadow of public cloud vendors such as Amazon Web Service (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Digital Ocean continues to help define what it means to be an alternative public cloud in a market dominated and largely defined by hyperscalers.
So what lessons can operators learn from the past experience with server virtualization? Beware of merely shifting costs from capital to operating expenditures. Be selective in virtualizing the right resources and functions driven by the business need, and not the technology lure.
Software-defined Networking (SDN) im WAN bietet die Möglichkeit, durch höhere Betriebseffizienz, schnellere Erstellung von Services sowie differenzierte und personalisierte Netzwerk-Services die Kosten zu senken
Gleichzeitig wurden jedoch die Betriebskosten aufgrund komplexeren und arbeitsintensiveren Prozessen in die Höhe getrieben. Teilweise konnten diese Kosten durch vermehrte Integration der Server- und Netzwerkinfrastruktur und erweiterte Funktionalität der Software eingedämmt werden
Las redes definidas por software (SDN) en la WAN permiten reducir los costes gracias al aumento de la eficacia operativa, una mayor velocidad a la hora de crear servicios, y servicios de redes diferenciados y personalizados.
Sin embargo, los costes operativos se dispararon, ya que se necesitó una serie de procesos complejos y laboriosos. Con el tiempo, estos costes se controlaron gracias a una mayor integración de los servidores y la infraestructura de la red, así como a capacidades de software más avanzadas.

Hello, greetings, and welcome to Conversational Unified
Communications. I’m Brien Posey. For those of you who don’t
know me, I am a long time Conversational Geek author, and
17-time Microsoft MVP. My professional background is in both
IT and in commercial astronautics. It’s an odd combination for

(seriously). Thankfully, Peter, Nick, and the rest of the folks at
Conversational Geek have embraced my unorthodox (dare I say
eccentric) career choices and have allowed me to author books
on subjects ranging from the cloud computing to real life
rocket science. I would like to personally invite you to go to

Data conversations continue to change as all businesses are trying to figure out today's reality of the move to the cloud, anywhere/anytime computing, and the explosive growth of data. These trends have drastically reshaped the IT industry and data management forever. With continued market innovations in storage, cloud, and hyper-converged infrastructures, there are six key modern IT needs that are increasingly the focus of CIO and technology leaders.
Transform your business with services that allow you to innovate faster, simplify operations, and reduce risk. Building on an open, software-driven approach that uses virtualization, automation, analytics, and cloud, our networkwide architecture prepares you to respond to new opportunities at digital speed.
Virtualization has transformed the data center over the past decade. IT departments use virtualization to consolidate multiple server workloads onto a smaller number of more powerful servers. They use virtualization to scale existing applications by
adding more virtual machines to support them, and they deploy new applications without having to purchase additional servers to do so. They achieve greater resource utilization by balancing workloads across a large pool of servers in real time—and they respond more quickly to changes in workload or server availability by moving virtual machines between physical servers. Virtualized environments support private clouds on which application engineers can now provision their own virtual servers and networks in environments that expand and contract on demand.

Oracle is making significant engineering investments to ensure that Oracle
systems coupled with Oracle software deliver the best possible business
results. Integrated hardware, accelerated virtualization, and encryption ensure
that cloud deployments benefit from the utmost agility and security without
suffering performance losses.
A related recent development in the data center is converged infrastructure (CI). Instead of the traditional silo deployment approach to storage, compute, and network resources, all infrastructure elements are delivered and managed in a single environment, providing virtualized access to business services in an efficient manner. This is particularly suitable for cloud-based delivery models. However, since CI achieves lower costs through optimization of data center resources, it can be effective for all IT organizations, regardless of the way in which the services are managed or presented.
