One of the more popular methods of dealing with not just with the explosion
of devices but the growing challenge of dealing with growth of compute
devices under management in general is virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
While VDI has been overshadowed of late by newer and shinier TLAs like SDN
and IoT, it remains nonetheless a critical component of most organizations
As the technology behind VDI has matured, many organizations have begun to
reconsider their initial, early decisions to go with one technology over
another. That's natural, as it often takes tim... (more)
We’ve all known the person that believed they knew everything there was to

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...
