VMware vSAN is enterprise-class, vSphere-native storage that powers more hyper-converged infrastructure solutions than any other vendor. vSAN accelerates and simplifies the data center modernization journey by helping you evolve your infrastructure without risk, reduce TCO through simplified operations and server economics, and scale to tomorrow’s business needs with an agile, cloud-ready platform. As the only vSphere-native storage platform, vSAN naturally extends virtualization to storage, creating a hyperconverged solution that simply works with existing tools, skill sets, software solutions, and server platforms. The result is an agile IT environment ready for dynamic business needs.
In this book, we are going to look at the key trends driving the modernization of data infrastructure. We’ll see how organizations are adapting and flourishing in a data-driven world. For some time, headlines have been around the internet of things (IoT),
big data and data analytics. While these developments are important, the reality is that you cannot take full advantage of them without modernization. We’re going to look at these trends and priorities in detail, then look at the three key drivers of modernization: governance, mobilization and analytics. We’ll also consider the technologies that make up modern data infrastructure including artificial intelligence (AI), flash storage, converged and hyperconverged platforms and software-defined infrastructures. By making sense of data, we make sense of the world. With more data than ever before, we have the tools to turn all that information into intelligent innovation and change the way the world works.

Although the phrase “next-generation platforms and analytics” can evoke images of machine learning, big data, Hadoop, and the Internet of things, most organizations are somewhere in between the technology vision and today’s reality of BI and dashboards. Next-generation platforms and analytics often mean simply pushing past reports and dashboards to more advanced forms of analytics, such as predictive analytics. Next-generation analytics might move your organization from visualization to big data visualization; from slicing and dicing data to predictive analytics; or to using more than just structured data for analysis.

Device-centric management strategies have prevailed over the last several years, but this approach can no longer keep pace with the increasing number of remote workers who need to access more applications across multiple platforms. Enterprise IT leaders must shift from locking down devices to securing the corporate applications, data, and other proprietary content that reside on these devices. It’s time to move beyond mobile device management to a more holistic management method.

A Practical Guide to IDF/MDF Infrastructure Implementation
Once relegated to early adopters and casual home users, VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) has matured. An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare. If your organization has not already migrated to VoIP, the question is not so much if it will, but when. Cost is the primary driver, since the data network performs double duty by carrying voice traffic as well. VoIP also offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, zoned security, intelligent call routing, disaster recovery, video, teleconferencing, status updates and other advanced features.
The transition to VoIP presents a number of challenges, including

A recent study by Engineering.com indicated there is a significant gap between how Industrial Equipment Manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. In order to address the challenging aspects of product development projects, it was determined that projects with a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution will perform higher.
Learn how PLM solutions with embedded project management can uniquely provide the following operational best practices:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio in order to leverage common technology platforms and launch products to market faster
• Coordination of a project’s schedule and resources, with its scope as defined by requirements and development constraints, in order to meet market expectations
• Automatic project task updates as development work is completed to provide a real-time understanding of project status and progress
In time, containers will be the means by which all workloads are deployed on server platforms. It makes too much sense. Constructing fake machines around virtual workloads, just to make them portable across servers, was not the architecturally rational thing to do. It was the expedient thing to do, because cloud platforms had not yet evolved to where they needed to be.
This book presents a snapshot of the emerging approaches to container monitoring and distributed systems management that engineers and their customers are building together.

An introduction to the Forrester analyst report: How to Capture the Benefits of Microservice Design
There has always been a relationship between an application and the platform and services which
run it. For a long time, that relationship was very tight and encompassed a lot of areas related to the
application design, from the language the application could be written in to administrative behaviors
like monitoring and logging, even things like transaction management, frontend UI development, or
In a sense, the application platform was just another design consideration for the application. A few
years ago, as significant changes in platform technology like cloud, containers, and virtual machines
started rolling out, the primary emphasis for CTOs and application architects was on how to move to
those platforms. The platform choice was a major part of the application. The focus was — one way or
another — getting into “the cloud.”

With today’s enterprise IT landscape evolving faster than ever, it’s hardly surprising that IT teams find it difficult to keep pace with the seemingly non-stop testing requirement for new software. That’s particularly the case in the SAP arena, where end-to-end SAP-enabled business processes now frequently span multiple SAP applications and platforms, and increasingly draw on multiple SaaS applications – all with their own separate release cycles.
