Bozman HeadshotJean S. Bozman is a seasoned industry analyst with more than 20 years of experience as a consultant and industry analyst focused on the worldwide IT markets for databases, servers, storage and software. Jean's full bio
  VMware, known for its software stack for virtualized environments, showed its expanded ecosystem at VMworld 2016 in Las Vegas. It has made a decided effort to reach into mixed-vendor deployments in virtualized x86 infrastructure – and to connect with other vendor’s public clouds, starting with IBM’s SoftLayer. The company with the largest installed base of virtualized x86 infrastructure is moving, in multiple ways, to grow its total available market (TAM), even as its corporate parent, EMC, merges into Dell Technologies. Significantly, it highlighted its connections with open-source technologies that drive many of the cloud computing deployments, both in enterprise data...

The new Dell Technologies stepped onto the worldwide stage last week (week of Sept. 7, 2016), bringing with it a new “take” on how to do IT services in the cloud computing world. The newly formed Dell Technologies services group, Dell EMC Services has a new mission: It will provide strategic advice and guidance for building out new infrastructure related to cloud and hybrid cloud. Dell Technologies CEO Michael Dell and Dell EMC president David Goulden said the new combined company will help customers to consolidate traditional IT infrastructure – even as they also help customers modernize and expand their use...

Oracle Corp. is introducing new SPARC processors to support scale-out cloud computing, just as many of its customers are looking to migrate some of their workloads to hybrid clouds. The new Oracle S7 processors, which are the processing engines on Oracle’s engineered systems, enable fast analytics and data security – supporting both of these chief features with on-chip, built-in acceleration technology.   End-to-end Computing for Hybrid Clouds End-to-end computing is key to the new S7-based systems, because they support the same Solaris/SPARC workloads that run on the Oracle SPARC M7-based systems, introduced in 2015. For purposes of consistency and compatibility,  Oracle...

Data gravity is becoming an ever-more-powerful force in data center environments. In this view, it makes more sense to analyze data where it has the greatest density – which is often in on-premises databases or data repositories. This “data gravity” perspective is all about a new option to aggregate data in a cloud provider’s infrastructure, allowing it to scale to the petabyte stage, and analyzing that large dataset using high-bandwidth, low-latency fabrics.   The term “data gravity” was coined by Dave McCrory two years ago, based on the physics of gravitation. McCrory, who had worked at VMware and Cloud Foundry, started...

Ten years after Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched its first Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) service, AWS is providing a world-wide “snapshot” of the state of customer adoption. AWS executives are traveling around the globe, hosting 30+ free Summits to attract prospective and current customers, in a year-long effort. This format is revealing more detail about the full portfolio of 70+ services AWS now offers to customers – such as database services, advanced analytics, and management services. That adds more context to the initial offer of less expensive compute and storage, first heard 10 years ago. At the Summit, Dr. Matt Wood,...

Business value in the cloud is moving “up the stack”—starting with the operating system and virtual machines (VMs), and moving upwards into containers, middleware, and management stacks. This move bridges the cloud-software layers – adding business value for customers by making AppDev and DevOps easier and making management simpler – and increasing revenue growth for the vendor. With that goal in mind, Red Hat enhanced new OpenShift container technology, making several announcements at its Red Hat Summit 2016 conference in San Francisco (June 27-June 30, 2016). These OpenShift capabilities are designed to make it easier to work with OpenStack, Docker and Kubernetes for...

  Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Internet of Things (IoT) solution gained attention at the HPE Discover 2016 conference in June by leveraging HPE’s converged technology in systems designed for IoT data collection and analytics. Details about the announcement can be seen here. HPE sees IoT – and the new IoT edge servers – as an important avenue for expanding its server business.  Use-case examples for this category of edge servers include analyzing the sensor data generated in retail, manufacturing, oil/gas, health care, transportation and engineering. Scenarios include failure prediction, machine learning, preventative maintenance, and real-time monitoring of industrial processes and manufacturing devices....

IBM’s public discussion of its POWER processor roadmap shows that there will be scale-out and scale-up versions, starting with POWER9 in 2017. Key workloads for POWER9 will include cloud computing, visualization and HPC for scale-out servers, and transactional workloads and advanced Big Data analytics for scale-up servers. The scale-out versions will support intensive cloud computing from hyperscale cloud providers like Google and Rackspace, both of which are active members of the OpenPOWER Foundation, and both companies have said they will leverage POWER processors as part of their datacenter infrastructure. The scale-up versions will support enterprise on-prem computing, including traditional transactional and...
