SimpliVity unleashes third-gen hyperconverged infrastructure software

September 1st, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

SimpliVity accelerated its technology leadership in hyperconverged infrastructure by announcing its new OmniStack 3.0 Data Virtualization Platform — its most robust product launch since the company was founded.

As the transformational technology behind SimpliVity’s hyperconverged infrastructure solutions, OmniStack 3.0:

* Revolutionizes multi-site deployments with a new Unified Protected ROBO solution and a new optimized platform.

* Improves performance and scalability for highly consolidated single-site deployments.

* Extends foundational, built-in data protection by being the first hyperconverged infrastructure vendor to deliver file-level restore capabilities.

* Provides unmatched ‘SimpliVity HyperGuarantee’ for data efficiency, built-in data protection, multi-site management and non-disruptive IT refresh.

The OmniStack Data Virtualization Platform has differentiated SimpliVity from competitors since the company first launched. As the only vendor to assimilate all IT infrastructure, management and services below the hypervisor, SimpliVity’s hyperconverged infrastructure delivers the best of both worlds: the enterprise-class performance, protection, and resiliency that today’s organizations require, with the cloud economics that businesses demand, with 3x TCO reduction.


VMware intros “Microvisors” in new container embrace | #VMworld 2015

September 1st, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

VMware Inc. showed it’s deadly serious about containers during day one of VMworld yesterday, with the launch of two new technology previews that enterprises can use to build and run containerized applications.

Containers are becoming increasingly popular among ‘hip’ enterprises as an alternative to virtualization, a technology VMware dominates, and one which has become almost standard in the enterprise.

The new vSphere Integrated Containers are built to run atop of the existing vSphere technology that allows virtual machines to be run on on-premise data centers.

“VMware vSphere Integrated Containers represent a complementary set of cloud-native technologies featuring Project Bonneville, Project Photon OS, and VMware’s Instant Clone technology that will bring together the best of VMware vSphere with containers,” the company announced in a statement at VMworld.

The idea is to improve the way vSphere hosts the infrastructure that containers need to run, and therefore help VMware customers get up and running, without having to build an entirely new stack. The big feature here is stateful services for containers like storage, as well as integration with software like Docker, Kubernetes, CoreOS Tectonic and Mesosphere Inc.’s Data Center Operating System (DCOS).

VMware’s essentially trying to promote the idea of one VM for one conatiner, which is not really surprising considering that the very idea of containers poses a potentially mortal threat to VMware’s virtualization software. VMware begs to differ though, stressing its belief that the two technologies work better together at last year’s VMworld, and yesterday it reiterated this idea, saying those wanting to get into containers will appreciate the added security that vSphere and NSX offer. Simultaenously, VMware is trying to keep the added overheads low with its Project Bonneville, which offers an instant clone feature that can spin up container VMs with minimal resources.

On stage at VMworld, VMware’s cloud native apps head Kit Colbert presented this idea of “Micro-virtualization” as the new virtualization, though it remains to be seen if companies will actually buy into it.

On the same note, VMware also rolled out a preview of its Photon Platform, which will become available in private beta mode later this year. Photon Platform packs three components – the VMware Photon Controller, which acts as a “control plane”, the VMware Photon Machine, which offers a new “ESX Microvisor” for running containers on Photon OS, a stripped-down version of GNU/Linux that VMware first unveiled in April.

The Photon Controller comes with features similar to those found in Docker and Kubernetes, although both platforms can be integrated (along with Mesos) with it. Meanwhile, VMware’s EMC Federation buddy Pivotal Software Inc. has rolled out a new version of Cloud Foundry that bakes in the Photon Platform as well. Readers can find more on that initiative from Pivotal’s James Watters in this blog post.

vSphere Integrated Containers and Photon Platform are clearly designed by VMware to stave off the disruptive threat from containers, following the technology’s dramatic rise in the last couple of years. VMware made its first moves in this direction at VMworld 2014, but it’s still too early to tell if this defensive strategy will have the desired effect.


Android app links to iPhone

September 1st, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

Google is introducing an application that will connect Android smartwatches with Apple’s iPhone, escalating the rivals’ battle to strap their technology on people’s wrists.

The move thrusts Google onto Apple’s turf in an attempt to boost the lackluster sales of watches running on its Android Wear software. The program uniting the devices running on different operating systems is being released in Apple’s app store.

Until now, Android watches worked only with smartphones powered by Android software, just as the Apple Watch is designed to be tethered exclusively to the iPhone.

Google’s new app, though, will enable the latest Android watches to link with the iPhone so people can quickly glance at their wrists for directions, fitness information and notifications about events, emails and Facebook updates.

The devices still won’t be able to be tied together in a way that will allow the Android watches to communicate with all the other apps that a user might have installed on the iPhone.

That roadblock is likely to discourage many iPhone owners from defecting from Apple to buy an Android watch unless Google eventually finds a way to overcome the obstacle, IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said.

For now, the Android watches are most likely to appeal to iPhone owners reluctant to spend a lot of money on a device that remains more of a novelty than an essential gadget.

Google expects the prices of Android watches compatible with the iPhone to range from $100 to $400. Apple, which has a long history of demanding premium prices for its products, sells most of its watches for $350 to $1,000, though its luxury models cost more than $10,000.

Android watches aren’t going to be bought by “the fan boys and fan girls that have to have absolutely everything with an Apple logo on it,” Llamas said. “We are talking about going after people who are open to other possibilities with what they can do with their devices.”
