However, it got me thinking – what if we applied the same kind of thinking to an IT service management (ITSM) model, what would the post-cloud world look like?
Back in the 2000s, the cloud was first conceived as a pay-by-the-hour idea, and was born in the habit of borrowing computer resources and paying according to consumption.
One of the messages behind cloud computing is pay-per-use: The adoption of a virtualized, standardized, self service and automated environment should include the possibility to be charged only for the used resources. IBM SmartCloud Provisioning offers the messages of low complexity, low administration and ease of use.
IBM SmartCloud Application Services' main capabilities include the application lifecycle, application environment, and part of the integration. Sign up for the pilot program to try it yourself.
In this article, I would like to walk you through the IBM Service Delivery Manager (ISDM) upgrade process. Because new functionalities are being introduced with the release of IBM Service Delivery Manager 7.2.2, the ISDM cloud management system becomes an extremely useful and powerful stack to have in your environment.
I’d like to move one step forward, and describe the courses available in Big Data University with the suggested learning path that you should follow. This is all described in the article “Starting your education in big data” (same title as this blog post).
Together, IBM Global Services and Citrix have completed 15 XenDesktop rollouts in the last year that were over 1,000 seats. Several exceeded 20,000 seats with customers spread across the world. As desktop virtualization adoption expands across the enterprise, we are working together with customers to deliver virtual desktops to the entire user base of many of these organizations. IBM helps Citrix customers before and after their desktop virtualization rollout through their service offerings featuring Citrix technology.
The concept of Elastic IP (EIP) and Elastic Block Storage (EBS) was initially introduced by Amazon EC2 as a way to decouple the resources assigned to a cloud user from his utilization. In other words, as a cloud user, you can reserve an elastic resource and assign it to one of the VMs you own, but you can also reassign it to a separate VM whenever you need (for example, when you need to replace your VM with a new one).
