Cisco has been ridding itself of consumer products for some time, which is
why it was surprising to see Cisco at the International Consumer Electronics
Show this year. According to CEO John Chambers, however, the new IoE
(Internet of Everything) plan at Cisco is set to change the trajectory of
everyone on Earth, in both the consumer and the professional arenas.
Here are some ways IoE is going to impact the world:
Bigger than anything that’s come before. Now, don’t get the wrong idea:
Cisco isn’t going to sell IoE to consumers directly. But Internet of
Everything will impact our daily lives in ways we can’t yet possibly
imagine. From improved efficiency in the industrial arena to personalized
retail encounters to the ability to control an entire building’s
infrastructure with one simply smartphone app, IoE means big. Getting it
right. This new technology is based on ... (more)
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization has provided data centers with open source
solutions that allow them to virtualize, integrate, scale and manage
workloads. RHEV not only offers traditional virtualization that the data
center needs, but it also serves an on-ramp for data centers into OpenStack.
By enabling enterprises across the board to be able to move workloads around
on their existing infrastructure, all without losing performance or harming
service levels, RHEV has made a big difference.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and OpenStack
Red Hat, of course, is a primary contribu... (more)
Cloud computing has finally come into its own. While we’ve been hearing for
8 years or more that cloud computing would one day take over the enterprise,
the fact of the matter is that it’s been slow going.
While the spread of cloud computing solutions hasn’t been as rapid as many
early proponents predicted it would be, we are now to a place where cloud
solutions are seen as viable for most organizations, and are being utilized
Accordingly, it’s worth taking a look at the state of today’s cloud
computing options and making some guesses about where we’re going from
Surely you’ve heard it by now. It’s all over the networking world.
“Goodbye status quo, Hello Brocade!” For too long, networks have been
built and based on old paradigms that meet outdated needs and run on obsolete
Sure, the advent of networking transformed the world. But that wasn’t the
only revolution. Today’s network is looking at billions of devices,
virtualized businesses, cloud computing and a software-driven revolution. If
the network is going to keep up, the network has to be transformed. That’s
exactly what Brocade aims to do.
Let’s take a look at some of... (more)
When it comes to choosing a high-end disk storage platform, you’ve got to
choose wisely. You need general purpose disk arrays that will give you the
kind of performance, functionality and scalability that you need.
Today’s storage system marketplace can be tough to navigate. The boundaries
between network-attached storage and other solutions aren’t as clear as
they were even just five years ago.
At the front of the pack, at least according to Garner, are the Hitachi Data
Systems storage platforms, including the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform
