There are multiple ways to create an image on the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise and this is what I'll explain in this blog topic. We have first to distinguish two main streams: first, import an image from your own premises, and second, build an image based on the instance created on the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise platform.
IBM SmartCloud Monitoring provides event management and analytics for private cloud environments. It includes information about both physical and virtual infrastructure components that cloud administrators can use to optimize their private cloud hardware.
Final installment of a Q&A with IBM portal cloud lead developer Paul Kelsey.
Security health checking is an important IT security process. The question is how can the security requirements of customers be implemented effectively in the cloud environment? How can human interaction with the cloud avoided completely or to a large extend?
Before going deeper on how IBM SmartCloud Provisioning deploys virtual images, I discuss various hypervisors. Each of them has its own peculiarity, allowing you to leverage various features, implemented in various ways. This leads us to deal with various hypervisor limitations.
IBM India recently organized a cloud computing workshop at one of India’s premier technical institutes, Indian Institute of Technology(IIT), Kharagpur, at the annual technology festival, Kshitij 2012.
The next IBM SmartCloud Enterprise User Group Virtual Meeting will take place March 21 & 22.
Today’s Internet of people is evolving into an “Internet of things,” because soon there will be more than one trillion connected devices. By 2013, 1.2 billion connected consumer electronics devices are expected in the more than 800 million homes with broadband connections.
Today, we are used to speaking about desktop or test clouds, or maybe moving our email or CRM to cloud-based solutions. What do all these workloads have in common? They have some of the main characteristics to be a good candidate for cloud computing, but beyond that, they all are related to enterprise workloads with low or non-predictable demand for computing resources, do not generate a significant amount of data during application run, and are loosely coupled to the infrastructure.
A usual adoption pattern for cloud computing is desktops. It's really straightforward because, in general, each company has standardized desktops: only some specific version of the operating system is supported; only specific desktop flavors (styles) are available; only some applications are allowed; and typically everything is managed by the IT team.
