When you think Cloud, whether Private or Public, one of the key advantages that comes to mind is speed of deployment. All businesses crave the ability to simply go to a service portal, define their infrastructure requirements and immediately have a platform ready for their new application. Coupled with that you instantly have service level agreements that generally center on uptime and availability. So for example, instead of being a law firm that spends most of its budget on an in house IT department and datacenter, the Cloud provides an unavoidable opportunity for businesses to instead procure infrastructure as a service and consequently focus on delivering their key applications. But while the understanding of Cloud Computing and its benefits have matured within the industry, so too has the understanding that maybe what's currently being offered still isn't good ... (more)

Plexxi on Integrations: If it’s a one-off, you’re doing it wrong

The energy behind things like SDN and DevOps is focused on driving long-term operating expense down through heavy automation. Automation within a silo is meaningful, particularly for infrastructure where the rate of change is either high or complex. In the former, it reduces repetitive tasks. In the latter, it lessens the likelihood of human error. But the real power of automation is at the edges. Wherever two silos come together (storage and networking, or compute and networking, for example), the boundaries tend to be hard edges. We don't see a lot of orchestration tools that effectively manage over these boundaries. In fact, within customer environments, these domains are owned by different teams under different management with different budgets and priorities. When things need to happen at these hard organizational and infrastructure edges, that work tends to be ...

Explicitly-defined failure domains in the datacenter

While the bulk of the networking industry’s focus is on CapEx and automation, the two major trends driving changes in these areas will have a potentially greater impact on that which matters most: availability. In fact, despite that datacenter purchasing decisions skew towards CapEx, the number one requirement for most datacenters is uptime. If availability is so important, why is it not the number one purchasing criteria already? First, it’s not that availability doesn’t matter. It’s more that when everyone is building the same thing, it ceases to be a differentiating point. Most switch vendors have converged on Broadcom silicon and a basic set of features required to run datacenter architectures that have really been unchanged for a decade or more. But are those architectures going to continue unscathed? SDN and network architecture For those who believe in the t... (more)
