VMware hopes that any customer looking to use Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform will choose the company’s vRealize Suite to centrally manage their on-premises virtualized environments and the public cloud.
Ease of deployment, central manageability and reduced costs. Sound too good to be true? It’s SD-WAN, a software-based approach to managing your Wide Area Network. Think of SDN, but for your branch. It’s early days for this technology, but it’s expected to grow fast in the coming years.
A recent Gartner report finds that technology vendors are over-inflating the revenues they report for cloud sales by lumping in non-cloud technologies, making it confusing for users to judge the strength of a vendor’s financial health and difficult to make comparisons between vendors.
A working group made up of 10 Fortune 500 customers is urging for easier interoperability between public and private clouds.
An analyst at Morgan Stanley reading the tea leaves of recent financial disclosures from Apple predicts that the company could be transitioning away from using Amazon Web Service’s Cloud, which if true could represent blow to the leading IaaS Cloud vendor.
Amazon's stock dropped in after hours trading after analysts were disappointed by the company's earnings; but the strong performance of the company's Amazon Web Services cloud unit actually boosted profits. If Amazon didn't have AWS, the earnings report would have been much more ugly for the company.
VMware is in the midst of turbulent times: It announced 800 layoffs this week and the departure of its CFO; the merger of its parent company EMC with Dell is hanging over its head; its vCloud Air public Cloud has had fits and starts. But CEO Pat Gelsinger is banking on this one network virtualisation feature to help turn the company’s fortunes around.
Despite public cloud being as popular as ever, questions like, ‘is it more secure than my data center?’ still remain. Here are five tips from Amazon’s own best security practices.
Google Cloud Platform is in the unique position of being considered one of the big three IaaS vendors, but at the same time almost always seen as being the third-best option behind AWS and Microsoft. As the new head of Google’s cloud, VMware co-founder Diange Greene is now charged with doing what she did at VMware: Take a ground breaking niche technology and turning it into the must-have enterprise product. But it will not be easy.
Cisco today announced a new monitoring tool named Cloud Consumption as a Service that collects network traffic information and presents IT officials with a peek into any use of public-cloud based services within a company.
Months after bowing to investor pressure and spinning out its GoTo family of collaboration products, Citrix announced today that it is selling its two CloudStack infrastructure management products to Persistent Systems.
An analysis of downtime at IaaS public cloud providers in 2015 by tracking firm CloudHarmony reveals that despite having the largest cloud offering on the market, Amazon Web Services had the least amount of outages compared to Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and most of its other competitors. But take the data with a grain of salt, because even its backers say it’s not a holistic view of cloud availability.
Annapurna Labs Inc., a company quietly bought by Amazon last year, announced this week that it will expand its efforts to sell chips for use in next-generation WiFi and Internet of Things devices.
