Virtualizations plays a critical role in today’s data centers, as it was designed to reduce operational costs while boosting performance and efficiency. The emergence of software-defined data centers (SDDC) and hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI) that rely on an extra abstraction layer enables faster provisioning of storage, compute and networking resources while offering IT admins an automation architecture through the use of APIs and policies.

Digitalization has brought new opportunities for companies and new challenges for IT teams. If legacy data centers were built around vendor-specific hardware, requiring dedicated manpower and software for maintenance, hyperconvergence (HCI) and today’s software-defined data centers (SDDC) introduce a new abstraction layer that turns hardware into a commodity.
Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection has been awarded Best New Technology at Orlando’s Citrix Synergy 2017, a prize that acknowledges innovative and buzz-worthy products that excite judges and conference attendees.
Last Friday (April 14, 2017), just before Easter, an egg was laid by The Shadow Brokers, a group that hopped into the spotlight in mid-2016. This time, the group dropped an especially colorful release, in the form of Eternalblue.
When companies suffer a data breach, employees are usually key in enabling hackers to access to the infrastructure to steal sensitive information. In spite of billion-dollar efforts to bolster corporate security and educate employees, Internet users in the US still have little knowledge about basic cybersecurity, according to a recent Pew Research survey.
Organizations have been facing an increase in sophisticated cyberattacks attributed to governments or corporate and financial espionage. What’s striking is that it takes companies an average of 5 months to detect a data breach, easily enough to incur even crippling losses.
While software defined data centers (SDDC) are believed to be the future of data centers, companies have already begun implementing or planning their growth strategies to encompass this trend.
Wrongly considered the new kid on the block by some enterprises, virtualization technology has been around for a decade and embraced by many technology-oriented businesses due to its flexibility and room for expansion, increased productivity, superior storage capacity, and lower costs, among others.
Recent surveys have revealed that 34 percent of companies have been breached in the past 12 months alone, with 74 percent of IT decision makers claiming they have little to no clue as to how the breach occurred.
When it comes to the business of information security, and the big technology trends that will likely shape the year ahead, the RSA Conference is perhaps the most important event of the year. And with a record attendance of more than 43,000, this year was no exception.
This year’s leading security conference, RSA, takes place February 13-17 in San Francisco, California, where the world’s best security researchers will present the findings of their latest research against cybercrime.
From 1960s mainframes to today’s datacenters, computing has changed drastically, in both hardware and software. Today’s converged infrastructures bring together hardware and software to redefine how we operated, helping businesses to cut costs while maintaining availability and performance.
