The Road To Cloud Portability

July 26, 2018

The proliferation of digital technology has created an awe-inspiring number of connections, products, services, ideas, insights and efficiencies. Every business wants to be on a Digital Transformation journey to avoid being disrupted, displaced or just disappearing. Over the past decade, it has also become clear that speed has won in the marketplace: businesses that are able to innovate and experiment with new delivery models and platforms -usually with software-based solutions- are outcompeting those that follow more traditional delivery models. The new digital era has witnessed a series of fundamental shifts in the way enterprise applications are designed and how they engage with their business systems. From monolithic mainframe applications to Client/Server and then internet based and mobile applications, the birth and maturation of the digital revolution have itself been driven by the radical adoption and transformation brought by the Cloud, bringing a huge diversity of applications in most enterprises.

Virtualization Defined - Eight Different Ways

whitePaper | October 4, 2021

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.
