Research and Markets: Global Server Virtualization Market 2012-2016

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vnf254/global_server) has announced the addition of the "Global Server Virtualization Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Server Virtualization market to grow at a CAGR of 31.07 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the need for better productivity of enterprise servers. The Global Server Virtualization market has also been witnessing the reduced downtime of end-user systems. However, the need for huge initial capital investment is reducing the adoption among SMEs which could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Citrix Systems Inc., Microsoft Corp., Red Hat Inc., and VMware Inc.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Parallels Inc., Oracle Corp., IBM Corp., and Hewlett-Packard Co.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Data Centers team said: ''Rapid advancements in technology related to server virtualization have led to the incorporation of techniques to reduce the downtime of end-user systems during server and network maintenance. The data in the network is backed up periodically and measures are taken to ensure minimal downtime of the network. During server or network maintenance, the virtualized server instances keep running and do not allow any changes in the end-user processes. Even in case of a network failure, the server reinstates the system to the same state in which it was before the failure. With the adoption of server virtualization, enterprises are able to increase the productivity of their networks.''

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regulatory scrutiny and increasing consumer lack of trust in technology in general.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices. Ed presented sought out sessions at CloudEXPO Silicon Valley 2017 and CloudEXPO New York 2017. He is a regular contributor to Cloud Computing Journal.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
