The Logic of Logic Layer

Moving to a Converged Data Center is Easier Than You Think

by Kurt Hildebrand | 02.17.17

The software-defined data center (SDDC) is increasingly considered to be the next step in the evolution of virtualization and cloud computing. It typically consists of three core components: network virtualization, server virtualization, and storage virtualization. But a business logic layer is also required to translate application requirements, SLAs, policies, and cost considerations into provisioning and management instructions.

The Virtues of Virtualizing with SDDC

It’s Easier than You Think

by Kurt Hildebrand | 02.13.17

The software-defined data center (SDDC) is emerging as a means of simplifying and cost-reducing enterprise computing—as well as deploying software-defined appliances that leverage existing technologies to enable a standardized, repeatable framework for data center operations. But is implementing SDDC worth the effort it takes you to virtualize data center resources?

Growing Towards the Future

Have You Seen the Latest in Converged Infrastructure?

by Kurt Hildebrand | 12.02.16

Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of growth in converged infrastructures. Essentially, a converged infrastructure is any type of infrastructure that takes two or more discrete pieces of technology and consolidates them into one information system solution. Traditional converged systems, ones that are packaged solutions, take existing technology and consolidate it into a repeatable, standardized deployment framework. But the new model of converged systems takes that disparate technology and converges it in a much more tightly integrated way, using something called the software-defined data center. Software-defined is just another way of saying hyperconvergence.

The Age of Remote Server Managing

Times Have Changed—Has Your Data Center Changed with Them?

by Jake Bernier | 11.28.16

Once upon a time, but not that long ago, data center servers were much like their own self-contained cities. Getting them to talk to one another on a reliable, sure-fire basis was akin to wizardry. And making sure they ran trouble free 24 x 7 was a constant battle. It was an age where IT professionals dreaded the sound of their pager signaling an issue—usually at two in the morning. It was an age of solder and steel, of magic blue screens, and of issues of draconic proportions that needed to be overcome. It was an age of constant vigilance.

All Eyes on Server Management

Single-Pane Management Pains Have a Remedy

by Jake Bernier | 09.27.16

The phrase “single pane of glass” is almost always included somewhere on the marketing slick for every piece of infrastructure management software. And the reason is obvious—because who in their right mind would choose to have IT administrators juggling multiple applications all day just to keep the lights on? As obvious as that may seem, the truth is that most data centers still require highly-specialized, on-site resources that are proficient with dozens of infrastructure technologies and the various management standards that govern each of them individually. Administrators are not looking though a single pane of glass, but rather through a kaleidoscope.
