  Leaders of the OpenStack Foundation presented a profile of OpenStack adoption at the semi-annual Summit in Boston (May 8-10), based on a survey of 1,300 OpenStack developers and users in 78 countries. The Foundation’s key objective: Making clear that production deployments are growing, building on projects begun since 2015, even as some users are testing proof-of-concept (PoC) projects. This blog will show key data points presented in the survey, looking at OpenStack’s challenges and the path forward for customer adoption and consumption models. The OpenStack Foundation’s survey found that OpenStack software is having an impact in datacenters worldwide, showing...

    Mindful that the move to hybrid cloud is accelerating – and that business priorities are increasingly driving IT buying decisions – Red Hat executives at Red Hat Summit 2017 highlighted the business impact of adopting their portfolio of open-source software products. The focus at this year’s Summit: Providing developers and IT operators with tools that reduce the number of individual steps needed to complete many repetitive tasks. Integration of functionality, and unified consoles for monitoring and management are intended to reduce operational costs for the business. This approach addresses the “Dev” and the “Ops” personnel within an IT organization...

The world’s data centers are working to adopt Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) – but they are far from reaching their goals. The single biggest challenge in SDI is achieving interoperability between many kinds of hardware. Without that, a data center’s systems become a Tower of Babel, preventing IT system admins from seeing a unified view of all resources – and managing them. Built to leverage virtualized infrastructure, SDI will be easier to achieve if there are more bridges between platforms – leading to better management. This blog focuses on an emerging management standard called Redfish, which is designed to help make...

IBM’s quantum computing technology, developed over decades, is ready for commercialization. It is a fundamentally different approach to computing than is used in today’s systems – and, as such, represents a watershed in computing history. By allowing scientists and researchers to model the complexities inherent in natural phenomena and financial markets, quantum computing is a new approach to the way in which computing itself is done. It is different than Big Data analytics, which finds patterns in vast amounts of data. Rather, it will generate new types of data characterizing phenomena that couldn’t be quantified before. What began deep in the...

  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...

IBM Systems’ year-end report to analysts was remarkable in the way that it positioned distributed computing, supporting hybrid cloud and analytics, as an important key to the company’s overall systems strategy. It is also vital for growing installations of IBM hardware and software, and expanding into new accounts. IBM has long been involved in scale-up and scale-out computing, but its brand is often associated with traditional scale-up systems and storage for data centers. This year-end report showed how the portfolio, as a whole, enables distributed computing and scale-out computing, to support hybrid cloud, analytics and cognitive computing. With this approach, IBM’s...

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...
