A Kusnetzky Group client and I had a rather intense discussion about the role virtualization technology could play in a disaster recovery strategy. Although the strategy this organization was currently pursuing appeared to be based upon sound foundations, it didn't go far enough.
Virtualization reaches from hand-held devices to the data center to the clouds. Virtually Speaking examines the forces behind this expansion, the suppliers of the technology and the organizations using the technology.
Daniel Kusnetzky, a reformed software engineer and product manager, founded Kusnetzky Group LLC in 2006. He's literally written the book on virtualization and often comments on cloud computing, mobility and systems software. In his spare time, he's also the managing partner of Lux Sonus LLC, an investment firm.
Kenneth 'Ken' Hess is a full-time Windows and Linux system administrator with 20 years of experience with Mac, Linux, UNIX, and Windows systems in large multi-data center environments.
In the post Virtualization - Don’t Forget Technical support we explored the notion that technical support is often forgotten in an organization's rush to deploy virtualization technology of one sort or another.To the lab!
As organizations are planning the implementation of a virtualization strategy, they often forget something that’s very important — technical support. Technical support is an often under-discussed aspect of technology acquisition, though is part of nearly every technology-based solution.
In short, no there wasn't a big virtualization story in 2007. In my view, there were many.
I was chatting with a Kusnetzky Group client about the role access virtualization can play and why organizations in some market segments are eager to adopt this technology.What is access virtualization?
I recently traded in my Honda Goldwing motorcycle and brought home a much smaller machine, a Honda Silverwing. It seemed a better fit for life's current conditions.
I was chatting with a neighbor at a local holiday gathering. He's an attorney, keeps up on current events and quickly grasps most concepts.
I've been working on a project to document all of the major and most of the minor players in the virtualization software market as described in the Kusnetzky Group Model of virtualization software. If you're not familiar with these segments, this post describes them.
Endeavors Technologies is one of the proponents of one of the important segments of application virtualization, application encapsulation and streaming. The company recently launched a free version of the AppExpress software and made it available on the Internet so that interested parties could try it out before signing on any dotted line.
John Whaley, Moka5 founder and principal engineer, and I spoke for a short while recently about Moka5's products (largely in beta at this point), the target audience for those products and the competitive environment. Thanks for spending so much time with me, John!
