Location Note that it isn’t the (old) “Fira de Barcelona” (close to Montjuic and Plaza de España), but is the new Fira center, called “Fira Gran Via” and quite far from the “old” one (this is probably the right point on GoogleMaps). It is still called “Fira Barcelona” just because is another venue (see the official site). VMworld EU will be at North Entrance Hall 8! Use GoogleMaps to find how to move from your hotel (both bus and train are available options). From […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes During the last VMworld US, I’ve spend some to to visit several booths to know more about some vendor that are not present in my Country (or in the entire region). One of them was Nimbus Data Systems, company founded on 2006 (at South San Francisco, and now with offices also in Netherlands and UK). It develops the award-winning Sustainable Storage® systems, an intelligent, efficient and fault-tolerant solid state storage platform engineered for server and desktop virtualization, databases, HPC, and next-generation cloud infrastructure. Their points for storage systems are: performance, efficency and simplicity! If the […]

Reading Time: 1 minute DataCore SANsymphony-V is a storage virtualization solution (a good definition could be that it is a “storage hypervisor”) already introduced a previous  post. Now has been released the new version 9 with several enhancements and features.. For more information see: Product page What’s New in SANsymphony-V R9

Reading Time: 2 minutes In the previous posts I’ve described the different types of virtualization and the different types of cloud computing. Due to the fact that usually IaaS provide VMs you can think that there is a direct correlation between virtualization (in this case system virtualization) and cloud. But this correlation could exists or also not! Virtualization is stricly related to the technologies and the infrastructure aspect. Cloud more on high-level aspects, like type of services, services level, …

Reading Time: 3 minutes Cloud computing is a way to use (and also deliver) computing resources (for a formal definition see The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing). For this reason there are different types of cloud based on which type of “computing” resources are provided. Mainly there are three big silos: Infrastructure as a service (IaaS): usually it provides VMs a virtual datacenters resources (like storage and networking), and also the infrastucture need to manage them. An example of this kind of cloud is Amazon EC2. Platform as a service (PaaS): in this case a developer platform is provided […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes With the term virtualization usually we are talking about System Virtualization, where a physical system is “partitioned” to permit multiple environments (using virtual machines). But virtualization is more generic and include different types:
