No more ATM hardware upgrades with OS-Virtualization

February 19, 2019

In January 2020, support for Windows 7 will end and it must be replaced by Windows 10. This migration presents banks with a major problem: the expense and complexity of upgrading their ATM software and hardware. The shift from Windows XP to Windows 7 in 2014 cost the global industry billions of dollars because upgrading the ATM operating system also meant upgrading the hardware. Banks are about to encounter the very same issue again when they must upgrade to Windows 10. But there is an answer: OS-Virtualization. This uses a technology known as a hypervisor to separate the hardware motherboard from the operating system so that software drivers that are unsupported under Windows 10 can be supported by the hypervisor software instead.

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.

Virtualization Management with SUSE Manager

whitePaper | November 10, 2019

Virtualization is the means by which IT administrators create virtual resources, such as hardware platforms, storage devices, network resources and more. There are quite a few tools that enable the creation of virtual resources (such as Xen and KVM), but what about the management of those tools? That’s where SUSE Manager comes in. The current iteration of SUSE Manager enables an admin to work with VMs via the following feature set.

VMware Workspace Security and Carbon Black Datasheet

whitePaper | January 10, 2020

Today’s expanding organizational and work perimeters provide even greater opportunities for cyber criminals. According to the world’s leading incident response (IR) professionals, increasingly sophisticated attacks involving instances of “island hopping,” counter incident response, and lateral movement within a network are quickly becoming the new normal. Advanced phishing techniques using social engineering and programming expertise, bots, and ransomware threats also more frequently expose organizations, even those working hard to stay one step ahead.

NSX-T Data Center Installation Guide - VMware NSX-T Data Center 2.4

whitePaper | February 28, 2020

In the same way that server virtualization programmatically creates and manages virtual machines, NSXT Data Center network virtualization programmatically creates and managed software-based virtual networks. With network virtualization, the functional equivalent of a network hypervisor reproduces the complete set of Layer 2 through Layer 7 networking services (for example, switching, routing, access control, firewalling, QoS) in software. As a result, these services can be programmatically assembled in any arbitrary combination, to produce unique, isolated virtual networks in a matter of seconds.
