Build a Scalable Storage Infrastructure with Cisco UCS and Cisco Intersight

July 6, 2019

Software-defined storage replaces traditional, purpose-built storage. It can be managed as a single platform and automates delivery of services based on built-in intelligence and best practices. The preconfigured, standardized storage components that are typical of today’s software-defined storage solutions deliver many of the same task-specific capabilities as standalone systems. They just use a different approach to get there: a faster, easier, more cost-effective approach that relies on softwarebased specialization and automation to meet different requirements quickly and economically.

The Most Complete and Integrated Virtualization - White Paper

whitePaper | November 14, 2019

Information Technology (IT) needs are evolving rapidly as datacenters transform into service centers that deliver applications on demand and respond to changing customer requirements with speed and agility. With users demanding access to applications and services 24x7, service-level agreements have become stringent. In addition, cloud computing is gaining in popularity and taking a foothold in datacenters, reflecting user needs to get services at any time.

vSAN 2-Node Cluster on VxRail Planning Guide

whitePaper | January 15, 2020

VMware vSAN 2-node cluster is a configuration that is implemented in environments where a minimal configuration is a key requirement. VxRail v4.7.100 was the first release to support the vSAN 2-node cluster with direct-connect configuration. Starting with VxRail v4.7.410, vSAN 2-node cluster with switch configuration is also supported.

Virtualized RAN Challenges Debunked

whitePaper | January 17, 2020

Mobile network operators (MNOs) are now considering ways to take advantage of the benefits that Virtualized RAN (vRAN) can deliver. vRAN gives MNOs greater network availability and better deployment flexibility using pooled, centralized resources that are operating on standardized commercially available hardware. The virtualized functions that provide the network’s baseband processing in vRANs also lower CAPEX and OPEX by reducing cell site real-estate space and the power needs of the equipment that no longer resides on-site.

Virtualization Defined - Eight Different Ways

whitePaper | October 4, 2021

Virtualization as a concept is not new; computational environment virtualization has been around since the first mainframe systems. But recently, the term “virtualization” has become ubiquitous, representing any type of process obfuscation where a process is somehow removed from its physical operating environment. Because of this ambiguity, virtualization can almost be applied to any and all parts of an IT infrastructure. For example, mobile device emulators are a form of virtualization because the hardware platform normally required to run the mobile operating system has been emulated, removing the OS binding from the hardware it was written for. But this is just one example of one type of virtualization; there are many defi nitions of the term “virtualization” fl oating around in the current lexicon, and all (or at least most) of them are correct, which can be quite confusing.

Intel Page Modification Logging, a hardware virtualization feature: study and improvement for virtual machine working set estimation

whitePaper | January 7, 2020

Intel Page Modification Logging (PML) is a novel hardware feature for tracking virtual machine (VM) accessed memory pages. This task is essential in today’s data centers since it allows, among others, checkpointing, live migration and working set size (WSS) estimation. Relying on the Xen hypervisor, this paper studies PML from three angles: power consumption, efficiency, and performance impact on user applications. Our findings are as follows. First, PML does not incur any power consumption overhead. Second, PML reduces by up to 10.18% both VM live migration and checkpointing time. Third, PML slightly reduces by up to 0.95% the performance degradation on applications incurred by live migration and checkpointing.
