In the light of the vSphere 6.5 release, moderator Stephen Foskett asks the roundtable about the impact of VMware integrated containers. This runs on Photon OS , a lightweight Linux distribution that runs a single container. What is the impact of this integration, in terms of security, training, and administration? And more importantly, does the industry need vSphere butting into the container space?
James Green reviews how the application level segmentation from Aporeto’s Trireme project can help you deal with security in the post-cloud world.
If hype was something that had mass, containers would affect the tides. In this State of the Industry, we look at the state of container storage. Various companies will tell you it’s broken. We’ve consulted with experts to find out what the specific issues are, and what the future will look like.
Secondary storage sounds safe enough, but James Green brings to light the salient problem of dark data. Just so it’s understood, let’s define secondary storage as anything that isn’t considered mission critical for your business on a day to day level. Most of this would include backups, but it also could include archival data, test/dev, […]

RAID protection schemes have been used for a long time to protect data, either by mirroring the same data across redundant drives or by calculating parity across a collection […]
James Green of Actual Tech Media comments: In the data center, technology advances in distinct steps rather than smoothly along a continuum. One day we don’t have SSDs, and the next, the first SSD is generally available and we do. Market adoption, however, smooths out those distinct steps into what looks more like a gradually sloping […]
James Green of JDGreen.io comments: With any technology, whether it’s consumer technology or enterprise IT, it’s only a matter of time from the purchase before the technology is outdated. Most IT departments are extremely good by now with understanding the refresh cycle and how hardware depreciates over time. I learned of some technology at Cisco Live Europe this […]
This is post 8 of 8 in the series “Riverbed Hybrid Enterprise Tech Talks” Throughout the course of this Tech Talk series, we’ve really hammered on the idea that a Hybrid Enterprise model is a great solution. But as we wrap up, I feel that I’ve left one thing somewhat unclear. That is: the answer […]
This is post 6 of 8 in the series “Riverbed Hybrid Enterprise Tech Talks” Bob McCouch recently wrote about some Networking Challenges to Hybrid Application Deployment and it got me thinking: what questions would I need to answer to identify opportunities to introduce “hybrid enterprise” concepts in my environment? How can I ensure successful transition […]
This is post 4 of 8 in the series “Riverbed Hybrid Enterprise Tech Talks” In a recent post, I mentioned discussion with Steve Riley about the notion of “hybrid enterprise.” I think it’s important to expound on exactly what that means, and what this will look like. We’ve become accustomed — at least in my […]
