Managed Service Providers using legacy Application and Network Performance Monitoring solutions are facing the challenges of the new IT paradigm. The inescapable evolution to virtualization, cloudification, SDN and container-based architectures are making MSPs services difficult to sell, build and run. Time to set-up and time to insight becomes longer and without agility and the ability to adapt. Current solutions require deep expertise but lack flexibility and comprehensive visibility across all layers and all applications that are required for fast root-cause analysis.
Through 2022, 60% of all organisations will implement data virtualization as one key delivery style in their data integration architecture," according to Gartner. What is data virtualization and why is its adoption growing so quickly? Modern data virtualization accelerates that time to insights and data services without copying or moving data.
Containers have become the preferred application development and deployment platform for new applications in both enterprises and service providers. In addition, companies are also looking to repackage and deploy existing applications within container environments. However, one of the most common concerns brought up by CIOs, CSOs and infrastructure technologists alike, is that of potentially reduced security – especially when compared to VM platforms. The reality is quite different. Containers can be a vehicle for improving data center and application security, but it does take putting in the right processes and laying the right foundation.
As schools examine resources to support the growth and improvement of AP courses in science, the use of augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) has allowed students to do things that were previously dangerous, impossible, counterproductive, and expensive (DICE). Come explore the elements of DICE and how leveraging an AR/VR learning tool can not only provide these experiences but lead to improved exam scores.
