In Lesson 1 and Lesson 2 Sudip Chahal (Intel IT) shared his perspective on virtualization usages and technology requirements respectively. It was clear to me that Live VM Migration usage models are transforming the requirements placed on server infrastructure.

In Lesson 3 , our final video in this series on virtualization, I interviewed Intel Technology Specialist Radhakrishna (RK) Hiremane Shridhar, who discusses the platform and hardware assist technology that has been designed specifically into the current and future generations of Intel processor based servers to support both consolidation and emerging flexible live VM migration use models.I invite you to view lesson 3 (~ 6min) and comment on the usefulness of this information to your business planning.

I hope you were able to gains some key insights in this series.

Cloud Computing protocol

Posted by kamalanathan Jan 21, 2009


I came across one more definition of cloud computing in infoworld.

(http://weblog.infoworld.com/whurley/archives/2009/01/get_your_head_o.html?source=NLC-DAILY&cgd=2009-01-19)

"the use of commercial computing services, including software-as-a-service applications, delivered over the Internet."

Always word commercial and preference/standard go hand in hand.

thats a moot point!

 

Cloud Computing needs some common protocol since it has a mix& match of several industry components.

for example,  for server management we have IPMI protocol.
I believe all the vendors, manufacture servers that complaint to IPMI protocol.
Similar to this i like to see some common protocol emerging for cloud computing.

I gone throug the DMTF OVF(open virtualization format ver1.0.0d)specification.
OVF Specification describes only an open, secure, portable, efficient and
extensible format for the packaging and distribution of software to be run in virtual machines.


So Some Common protocol has to be framed covering how cloud components can talk each other,interconnect each other and so..

Since Cloud Computing is in early stage of designing , industry has to comeout with proper structure/framework to give user more flexibility .

Virtualization is transforming the way IT looks at server technology and usages in the data center.  In Lesson 1 , I interviewed Sudip Chahal (Intel IT) about the wide variety of use models for virtualization that are being deployed and evaluated across data centers worldwide. 

It was clear to me that the sheer volume of interest and activity around virtualization was transforming the way that IT was looking at technology, affecting their requirements for future server purchases. In Lesson 2 Sudip Chahal (Intel IT) and I discuss the changing technology requirements IT has on server platforms and technology across the data center to support both consolidation and emerging flexible usage models that depend on live VM migration.

Yesterday I had the chance to sit and discuss virtualization with Matt Eastwood, a leading analyst from IDC.  Matt refered to these new live VM migration models under the concept of improved mobility for the data center.  During our dicussion I mentioned this blog and the similarities to the themes I was writing about.

I invite you to view this short video (~ 5min) and comment about how your server product requirements are changing as you evaluate or deploy virtualization in your business.
