Dell Sees the Writing on the Screen

Dell expands services to the cloud

The coverage of Cloud Computing gets ever wider, as reported, Apr 2, 2012, in PCWorld.

Dell is in the process of acquiring Wyse Technology, a leader in cloud computing and desktop virtualization. This acquisition is yet another definite sign that the conception of what a PC is no longer holds, but is rapidly evolving. This evolution of the PC, for those of us able to recall the days of dummy terminals, almost feels like going backwards. But, of course, it is a loose association comparing dummy terminal days to the smart phone world of today, yet it is a handy illustration in which to wrap our minds around these relatively abstract concepts.

Once upon a time, not too very long ago, there existed the dummy terminal powered by the monster mainframe computer. The interface devices of monitor and keyboard, found their life and function through the network connection to an on site mainframe. The mainframe was the powerhouse, centralized in one location, housing all the stuff (data, programs, etc.) that we have come to think of as residing inside our own individual home computers. But "The Times They Are a-Changin", as the Dylan lyrics go.

What does this mean for the future? One thing it means is the convenience of remote desktop capabilities. That is the good news. The bad news is the ever increasing threat to the security of our information. A case in point is the recent security breach for cardholders of Visa and Master Card. I don't know about you, but the news sent a chilly tingle down my spine.

Let us celebrate the wonderful ease with which our beloved data of music, books and photos transmits seamlessly from device to device, but be wary, for with all good things comes a price.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.
