  Oracle is stepping up its move to the cloud, positioning the Oracle Cloud public cloud as an engine for growing its overall enterprise business. As more companies move workloads into hybrid clouds, and competition intensifies, Oracle has decided to play to its strengths in security, availability and workload performance. It has taken its own approach by leveraging its engineered systems, running in Oracle Cloud data centers – or in customer sites – as a differentiator in competing with other CSPs.  Oracle knows it is competing with other cloud services that got into the market much earlier than it did: Amazon...

Security and availability are top-of-mind IT concerns about enterprise clouds – and transferring enterprise workloads to hybrid clouds. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – security and availability are not going away just because we’re in the age of cloud computing. Rather, customers must evaluate their on-premises requirements for both security and availability -- and they must take steps to match those levels throughout the hybrid cloud, working together with their cloud service providers (CSPs). Security must be assured for all workloads and data. That can be achieved by means of encryption and user authentication – and by...

From the start of Larry Ellison’s Sunday night keynote on Sunday night, it was apparent that the dominant theme at the week-long  Oracle OpenWorld 2016 could be summed up in two words: The Cloud. Ellison, now Oracle chairman and CTO, signaled the direction the company is taking – a strong move to support cloud deployments on-premises, off-premises – or both, via hybrid cloud. He identified Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a prime competitor – and reinforced that positioning in his second keynote on Tuesday. Oracle executives spoke openly of the strong influence Ellison is having on Oracle product design, since he...

  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,...
