Infrastructure information

computer-science-books-list-23Technology is an important driving force for decisions about acquisition and disposal of infrastructure. It has a lot of impact on the business. Due to this fact the right information should be at hand to make important decisions about technology. What new technology should you embrace like hyper converged technology and VM-Centric infrastructure? And what should legacy technology should you dispose? Which requirements should you consider when acquiring technology? Many questions. This page contains references to various topics related to infrastructure. 

You can click on the hyperlinks which are the red titles. This will give you a whitepaper in PDF-format.

Remark: The information acquired from sources like websites is freely obtainable and all information about security is collected and presented in an easy way.

ZERTO – Cloud white paper BC & DR

Zerto – With the cloud becoming more of an option, enterprises of all sizes are looking for the cloud, be it public, hybrid or private, to become part of their BC/DR solution. However, these options do not always exist. Virtualization has created the opportunity, but there is still a significant technology gap. Mission-critical applications can be effectively virtualized and managed; however, they cannot be effectively protected in a cloud environment.

ZERTO – Hypervisor based replication

Zerto – Until now the most common replication technologies and methods essential to mission-critical BC/DR initiatives have been tied to the physical environment. Although they do work in the virtual environment, they aren’t optimized for it, leading to significant operational and organizational challenges

Software based storage virtualisation

IDC – Today’s information-based economy demands that IT managers enhance the business value of existing and planned IT investments while simultaneously reducing the costs of IT operations. Server consolidation and broader adoption of server virtualisation are some of the key strategies IT teams are counting on to meet these goals. Dealing with storage, however, is one of the most critical technical and economic roadblocks to broad adoption of virtualisation in many organisations. Limits include the up-front direct cost associated with replacing storage with complex networked storage systems, the added operational cost of managing networked storage systems, and the inherent inefficiencies of many of these storage systems.

VMware Infrastructure Architecture Overview
