Hardware In An Era Of Software-Defined Storage

Chuck's Blog - EMC

While many of us are enamored by the vision of a software-defined data center (SDDC), we also know that hardware will still be a very important consideration: how much, how efficient, how fast, etc. Hardware Matters. I can think of a few by myself :)  Software Shapes Hardware.

On Network Virtualization and SDN

Scott Lowe

Is there a difference between network virtualization and Software-Defined Networking (SDN)? So, in a similar fashion to my post on network overlays vs. network virtualization , I thought I’d weigh in with some thoughts. My purpose, as John put it when he invited me, was to “gently introduce” the community to the idea of network virtualization, which is where I now spend most of my time since joining VMware in early February. Or virtualized firewalls?

Did you want a side of SLBS (server less BS) with your software or hardware FUD?

Storage IO Blog

It turns out, serverless BS (SLBS) and hardware less are still trendy, and while some might view the cloud or software-defined data center (SDDC) virtualization, or IoT folks as the culprits, it is more widespread with plenty of bandwagon riders. To me what’s ironic is that many purveyors of of SLBS also like to talk about hardware. The post Did you want a side of SLBS (server less BS) with your software or hardware FUD?

Critical Xen hypervisor flaw endangers virtualized environments

Network World

A critical vulnerability in the widely used Xen hypervisor allows attackers to break out of a guest operating system running inside a virtual machine and access the host system's entire memory. This is a serious violation of the security barrier enforced by the hypervisor and poses a particular threat to multi-tenant data centers where the customers' virtualized servers share the same underlying hardware.

and as a returning speaker I recently had the opportunity to do a podcast with Technology Advice about SDN, virtualization, containers, and Interop. Companies are applying the “SDN” term to everything from using a Linux-based network operating system (NOS) on their hardware to adding APIs to existing proprietary NOSes or providing virtual appliances of their software. Last year, I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at Interop for the very first time. (I
