From CryptoLocker to WannaCry, ransomware has grown in sophistication and scope over the past few years. And given its widespread success with hackers, more ransomware attacks will likely be developed further into 2018. In anticipation of these attacks, many experts are saying that virtualized disaster recovery solutions may be the best way to defend against future ransomware.
Data storage may be one of the easiest facets of virtualization to explain, but that doesn’t make it immune to problems arising from confusion. There are a few things that can cause virtualized data storage to underperform, and most of them can be easily fixed by technicians who know their stuff.
Don’t worry, we’ll keep this one simple. Virtualization is confusing enough, and hyperconvergence is one of the newest solutions within the field, making it even harder to grasp. The quick and easy summary is this: Hypconvergence is about virtualizing the hardware and software components required to deploy and manage databases and virtualized desktop infrastructures.
Migrating your business’s data, applications and other critical resources to the cloud requires time and a bit of money. Performing a large-scale migration to Amazon Web Services delivers many benefits and is a cost-effective solution that most businesses should adopt.
2016 saw containerization (container-based virtualization) take off as a way for companies to utilize virtual platforms more efficiently. While containers use less resources than their virtual machine (VM) counterparts, performance differences are subtle and don’t necessarily make containers better.
Business owners always look for ways to integrate and streamline business operations to make them cost-effective, efficient, and easy to follow. This includes computing and technology use. vSpace Pro 10 has been introduced as a way to simplify the virtual desktop infrastructure that so many businesses rely upon.
In the past, when small- and medium-sized business owners needed to connect computers located in separate workspaces, virtualization was one of the best options. However, the field of virtualization has evolved to accommodate the increasing popularity of virtual containers.
Microsoft has found a way to incorporate virtualization protocols into the security of its Edge browser. With the protection of internet browsing inside a virtual container, hackers have a harder time exploiting unsuspecting web users. Read on to discover whether this development will compel you to switch internet browsers in your office.
For the average business owner, a virtualized network may not seem groundbreaking. And until recently, even the team at VMware didn’t realize just what they could do with it. Now that they’ve publicly announced what they’re calling “Project Goldilocks,” we finally see how relevant it is.
Until now, virtualization hadn’t been targeted by cyber attackers with the same vigor as other small- and medium-sized business IT solutions. Whether it was because of the inherent security of virtualization or because of the relatively narrow scope of its adoption, this is no longer the case.
