VMware Cloud – the Evolutionary Step Forward in Cloud

Posted by Jared Quan on Nov 26, 2014 2:00:00 PM

When the concept of the “cloud” came out, many companies were hesitant to adopt the policies and technologies required to take advantage of the concept. These companies had common concerns of the cloud like security, hardware/software reliability, and justifying implementation of the cloud after developing an on-premises solution. Some of the concerns were answered with the development and building of massive data centers, which provided high-end security and hardware redundancy. Without response to other questions, however, it seemed as though “cloud” would be more of a fad than the future, although the concept had been tremendously promising.

Solution to resolve the last set of concerns would seem to fall short as cloud options would come online that made promises they couldn't deliver, costing far more than initially estimated, or failing to be as reliable on the software side as advertised. A first look at VMware cloud raised doubts of this solution being any different than the others. Still, VMware leans heavily on its history as a technology giant to gain traction and credibility. Their three versions of the cloud were simple enough to ease concerns- the Public Cloud, Private or Hybrid.

Evolve your Break-Fix IT Services with Managed IT

Posted by Priscilla Silva on Nov 4, 2014 8:00:00 PM

The history of IT managed services begins with a past in break-fix solutions. Many SMBs without the personnel or resources to maintain their own infrastructure outsourced IT management to firms that strictly performed on a “it breaks, we fix it” basis. The problem with this structure came from the extensive data and revenue loss that followed the “break” when networks crashed or servers went down. Unfortunately, the best practice of these firms only went as far as periodically visiting on-site for system review of logs and end user information. They hoped to catch problems before they occurred- but these technicians could only see as far as that particular day, nothing that happened later could be anticipated until the problem already occurred and was reported. This routine also followed for system backups, resulting in days or more of missed data and information. This “break-fix” model was not sustainable for the unique businesses and technology of today and was in dire need of a better approach.
