Unifying Data Delivery Systems Through Data Virtualization

October 28, 2018

Many regard big data as the biggest change in the IT industry of the last decade. However, big data is still just data. Like ordinary data, big data consists of words, codes, numbers, dates, images, videos, and text. The big data trend did not introduce a new type of data. Big data systems process, store and analyze more of the same data. Evidently, to efficiently support these massive quantities of data, new technology was needed. Having to process and store more of the same data hardly classifies as the biggest change in the industry.

THE VIRTUAL CLOUD NETWORK

whitePaper | January 15, 2020

Businesses are evolving faster than ever before. Key technologies such as the cloud, mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT) are enabling organizations to undertake broad and deep digital transformations—changing the way companies operate, creating new business models and lifting employee productivity to new heights. As digital transformation takes root in enterprises, a parallel shift is occurring from massive centralized data centers to the cloud and then to the edge of the network.

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.
