#Gartner Outlines 10 IT Trends To Watch – via @MichealRoth, #Nutanix, #VMWare

This is also a good analysis I must say, I think that they are spot on! Even though I think that most companies haven’t addressed the whole Mobility aspect of going away from “managing devices” yet, there are a lot of “BYOD” strategies and solutions that companies still need to work on….

And of course I see a great opportunity to transform and build new “cloud” services/datacenters as well and do it in a more up-to-date, agile, scalable and simple way than what we’ve done over all these years. Stop building the old legacy architecture of  Compure, Network and Storage and see what the market leaders of IaaS and PaaS are doing. One of the great players here is of course Nutanix as I see it (contact EnvokeIT if you need more info about this great product)!

Gartner Inc. offered a glimpse of 10 trends for IT professionals to pay attention to over the next five years.

The trends were discussed in a Thursday Webinar by David J. Cappuccio, a research vice president at Gartner. He noted that IT pros are busy enough with daily operations, with “74 percent” of IT budgets devoted to those concerns. Still, he contended that there are lots of new technologies and trends that will have an impact on IT departments.

Gartner expects these trends will affect IT over the next five years:

  1. “Software-defined networks
  2. “Software-defined storage
  3. “Hybrid cloud services
  4. “Integrated systems
  5. “Applications acceleration
  6. “The Internet of things
  7. “Open Compute Project
  8. “Intelligent datacenters
  9. “IT demand
  10. “Organizational entrenchment and disruptions”

End user expectations are affecting IT. New workers getting out of college are expecting access to everything all of the time, from any device, from anywhere, Cappuccio said. They typically own between three and four devices today, he added.

Software-defined networking (SDN) came into general awareness about two years ago, expecially after SDN pioneer Nicira came out of stealth mode, Cappuccio said. Nicira’s idea was to create a software stack that would manage the real-world physical network. The concept resonated well with the marketplace, and Nicira was bought by VMware in a $1.4 billion purchase. SDN represents a new way to operate networks, which can be configured…

#Citrix #NetScaler 10 on Amazon Web Services – #AWS

Yes, it’s here! 🙂

Mainstream IT is fast embracing the enterprise cloud transformation and selecting the right cloud networking technologies has thus quickly emerged to be an imperative. As mainstream IT adopts IaaS (Internet as a service) cloud services, they will require a combination of the elasticity and flexibility, expected of cloud offerings and the powerful advanced networking services used within emerging enterprise cloud datacenters. 

Citrix® NetScaler® 10 delivers elasticity, simplicity and expandability of the cloud to enterprise cloud datacenters and already powers the largest and most successful public clouds in the world. With NetScaler 10, Citrix delivers a comprehensive cloud network platform that mainstream enterprises can leverage to fully embrace a cloud-first network design. 

Citrix and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have come together to deliver industry-leading application delivery controller technology. NetScaler on AWS delivers the same services used to ensure the availability, scalability and security of the largest public and private clouds for AWS environments. Whether the need is to optimize, secure or control delivery of enterprise and cloud services, NetScaler for AWS can help accomplish these initiatives economically, and according to business demands. 

The full suite of NetScaler capabilities such as availability, acceleration, offload and security functionality is available in AWS, enabling users to leverage tried-and-true NetScaler functionality such as rewrites and redirects, content caching, Citrix Access Gateway™ Enterprise SSL VPN, and application firewall within their AWS deployments. Additional benefits include usage of Citrix CloudBridge™ and Citrix Branch Repeater™ as a joint solution. 

Citrix NetScaler transforms the cloud into an extension of the datacenter by eliminating the barriers to enterprise-class cloud deployments. Together, NetScaler and AWS delivers a broad set of capabilities for the Enterprise IT: 

Hybrid Cloud Environment 

Hybrid clouds that span enterprise datacenters and extend into AWS can benefit from the same cloud networking platform, significantly easing…
