Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2dfsfs/virtualization) has announced the addition of the "Virtualization: Impact on Enterprise Networks and Cloud Infrastructure" report to their offering.
Virtualization represents a game-changer in IT infrastructure planning, operations, and management as major components (servers, desktops, storage and even entire data centers) are virtualized. The recent trend is for virtualization of key network components (routers, switches, dedicated servers, etc.), which is referred to in the industry as Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
NFV completely changes the way network architecture is viewed as fixed network elements, consisting of hardware components that are diverse in their make and configuration, is no more the design that is the norm. NFV allows an operator to optimize its infrastructure and increase service agility, representing a solution to problems that have plagued them for quite some time. NFV allows quicker time-to-market for new services because virtualized functions allow operators to introduce new services much faster and at much lower cost.
NFV represents a technical approach and solution set that helps enterprise companies optimize their operation in the face of rising hardware costs, manpower costs and stringent IT budgets. This report provides comprehensive analysis of NFV and its relationship and importance to enterprise IT management, network equipment, and communications.
This report includes a working model Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to determine the business case for an organization to move to NFV. Unlike a static business case, a TCO model takes into consideration, feature/functionality deployment with respect to both time and geography dimensions.

Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...

Most companies hope for rapid growth so it's important to invest in scalable core technologies that won't demand a complete overhaul when a business goes through a growth spurt. Cloud technology enables previously difficult-to-scale solutions like phone, network infrastructure or billing systems to automatically scale based on demand. For example, with a virtual PBX service, a single-user cloud phone service can easily transition into an advanced VoIP system that supports hundreds of phones and ...

“Oh, dev is dev and ops is ops, and never the twain shall meet.” With apoloies to Rudyard Kipling and all of his fans, this describes the early state of the two sides of DevOps. Yet the DevOps approach is demanded by cloud computing, as the speed, flexibility, and scalability in today's so-called “Third Platform” must not be hindered by the traditional limitations of software development and deployment. A recent report by Gartner, for example, says that 25% of Global 2000 companies will b...

Big Data is amazing, it's life changing and yes it is changing how we see our world. Big Data, however, can sometimes be too big. Organizations that are not amassing massive amounts of information and feeding into their decision buckets, smaller data that feeds in from customer buying patterns, buying decisions and buying influences can be more useful when used in the right way. In their session at Big Data Expo, Ermanno Bonifazi, CEO & Founder of Solgenia, and Ian Khan, Global Strategic Positi...

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for applica...
