Aerohive gets a boost from Dell EMC’s channel and services, helping it distribute its Wi-Fi hardware and cloud management platform and reach more customers.

Cloud Wi-Fi vendor Aerohive Networks has signed an original equipment manufacturing (OEM) agreement with Dell EMC to distribute its Wi-Fi hardware and its HiveManager NG Cloud Management Platform.

Cisco’s new portfolio of solutions takes the complexity out of hybrid and multi-cloud deployments, reduces costs and speeds up time to market.

One general rule of thumb I have with respect to technology deployments is that the solution to a problem should be simpler than the original problem itself. Unfortunately, we often forget that in IT and have significantly more problems after implementing a solution than we did before. 

Using hyper-converged infrastructure, Cohesity’s DataPlatform consolidates a company’s secondary storage onto one platform and reduces data storage and operational costs.

The rise of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) has been well documented over the past few years. The technology greatly reduces the operational overhead required to run workloads such as VDI and remote office/branch office workloads. The turnkey nature of HCI makes it easy to deploy and simple to operate while guaranteeing great performance. 

The acquisition of Brocade’s data center network business is culmination of an unusual reversal of fortune.

Extreme Networks today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Brocade’s data center switching, routing and analytics business, completing one of the most remarkable and unlikely turnaround stories in tech history.

Cisco MDS 9123T FC switch with integrated telemetry helps customers analyze SAN operations better, remediate problems faster and proactively handle storage issues.

Fiber Channel (FC) storage networks have always been somewhat of a black box. Servers and storage devices are plugged in, and things magically seem to work.

For the most part, storage-area networks (SANs) are reliable and perform well – and they better because the applications that rely of FC-SANs are typically the most important ones in the company. But what happens when things aren’t working? A poorly performing SAN might mean that the database with critical customer information isn’t available or financial records can’t be pulled up.

Tempered Networks makes it easy for non-networking professionals to instantly create their own secure overlay networks, eliminating the need for network operations to be involved.

Remember when Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) was all the rage? That’s the concept of workers being able to bring their own mobile phones and tablets into the workplace and use them for business-related functions.

That quickly evolved into bring your own applications, where workers or lines of business would go get their own apps via the cloud.

The Cisco-Google hybrid cloud solution can help businesses connect on-premises data centers to Google Cloud Platform.

There should be no question that for most organizations, hybrid clouds are the way of the future. My research shows that over 80 percent of organizations either use or plant to use a hybrid cloud strategy, so it’s coming and coming fast.

However, the path to hybrid clouds won’t be the same for all companies. Some will be aggressive and migrate to a cloud-native strategy today. Others will be more conservative and will “lift and shift” a few applications at a time before rewriting them. There’s no right answer when it comes to creating a hybrid cloud world; the key is to get there.
