Dell EMC VxFlex Family Overview

May 20, 2019

Business IT departments are experiencing challenges with the shortcomings of Storage Area Networks (overprovisioning, low agility, difficult storage migration), multiple infrastructure and application silos, and proprietary and costly fiber channel networking requirements. Many of these challenges can be successfully addressed by Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) that enables compute, storage and networking functions to be decoupled from the underlying infrastructure and run on a common set of physical resources. HCI uses software-defined storage (SDS), virtualization, x86 servers and high-speed ethernet together to create an x86 server-based SAN that provides the same high levels of performance, availability, and resiliency as a traditional SAN based on advanced storage arrays, specialized Fiber Channel networking, and high-end servers. HCI vastly improves infrastructure efficiency, lowers costs, and leads to IT transformation with improved agility, scalability and simplicity.

Virtualization is the Present and Future of Mobile Networks

whitePaper | June 15, 2022

The future of mobile networks will be software-centric, and Samsung is leading the way to transforming how wireless networks are designed and implemented using virtualization. The hardware-centric approach for network development, using vendor-specific hardware designs, has remained static for decades. That model is unable to keep up with the fast-changing world of today’s telecommunication services.

Security of the VMware vSphere Hypervisor.

whitePaper | May 1, 2022

Virtualization addresses IT’s most pressing challenge: the infrastructure sprawl that compels IT departments to channel 70 percent of their budget into maintenance, leaving scant resources for business-building innovation. The difficulty stems from the architecture of today’s x86 computers: they’re designed to run just one operating system (OS) and application at a time. As a result, even small data centers must deploy many servers, each operating at just 5–15 percent of capacity—highly inefficient by any standard.
