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.

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.

Getting Down to the Cores of Server 2016

What Licensing Changes Mean for You

by Brendan Randall | 11.03.16

Windows Server 2016 has been the most anticipated Microsoft release this year. However, rather than focusing on the latest and greatest features being added to the new version of the operating system, a lot of anticipation has been around the major licensing model changes. With Microsoft announcing early in the year that Windows Server 2016 would be moving to a core-based model, it raised a lot of questions. How will this new model work exactly?
