Virtualization and cloud computing are sometimes mistaken as one and the same, causing much confusion. For the record, virtualization is different from cloud computing, but these two technologies usually overlap. Virtualization Imagine a company with five servers, each assigned a single task such as storage, email, etc.
Some things never change: application performance issues
Flashback to twelve years ago when I was working at Mercury Interactive on their managed service for application performance management (APM). That year, Italy won the World Cup (again) and Enron went down in flames.
Businesses globally experience application performance issues, ranging from mildly annoying to severely threatening levels of interference. While not every malfunction costs millions of dollars in lost revenue, even just a brief outage can have long-term effects.
Cloud computing and virtualization are similar but not interchangeable. Both have their own benefits, so it’s worth learning how each technology works. With this knowledge, you can make the most out of your technology investment. Virtualization Imagine a company with five servers, each assigned a single task such as storage, email, etc.
As much as we like to use technology to stay connected and keep in touch with people, there comes a time where you have to meet in person. Often this means travel.
Travel for many is a daunting endeavor, but it can be made much easier by putting technology to work for use by using the right applications and services.
