Can Tablets Take the Place of Teachers?

If children can learn to read, they can read to learn. That's the philosophy behind an experiment to find out if illiterate children can learn to read on their own with the help of a tablet.

Infographic : Hypervisor Tug-of-War

We've described the battle between VMware and Microsoft as a hypervisor war going back as far as the first release of Microsoft Virtual Server. Unfortunately for Microsoft, that war was pretty ugly. On the one side, VMware had guns and cannons, and on the other side, Microsoft was throwing rocks. Ok, maybe it wasn't quite that bad, but you get the picture.
Fast forward and Microsoft has added a lot of weaponry with the introduction of Microsoft Hyper-V, the company's true hypervisor. And the Redmond giant's offering just keeps on getting better. But, so too does the ESX hypervisor from VMware. A virtual tug-of-war if you will.
Check out this latest Infographic coming from the folks at SolarWinds
Instead of depicting this as a hypervisor war, the InfoGraphic calls it the Hypervisor Tug-of-War.
The survey information clearly shows that VMware remains in control. However, there are some interesting data points in there as well.
  • Survey responders believe that VMware is far and away going to be the most trusted private cloud vendor, with a whopping 76.9%
  • However 76.1% believe Microsoft will close the functionality gap with VMware thanks to Hyper-V 3.0
  • While trying to break beyond the barrier of VM Stall, it sounds like 56.8% of key applications will be deployed on a private cloud next year, while 57.7% have already moved beyond the 40% mark of their datacenter being virtualized
  • 70% of end users still deploy more than one virtualization tool
And at the bottom, we see that VMware still commands a lead in the hypervisor tug-of-war.

Infographic: The Big Data Boom

Our age has moved into a complex situation. On the one hand, we are experiencing an ever-increasing level of home clouds and, while on the other hand, commodity data services are hungrily intensifying. In the midst of this chaos, big data and cloud computing have secured their bond, and their friendship has come forward. This has prompted a sigh of relief from the user group.

Data is a common problem in organizations, and hence they want to figure out how to get their enterprise data assets under control. The friendship mantra of big data and the cloud can be verified by analyzing the emergence of cloud computing with the processing power to manage exabytes of information. Being able to handle large amounts of information is a priority for big enterprises in the industry because organizations are trying to get their data under control. Nevertheless, learning from the great success of big data in the cloud world, many governments have also become active players in the cloud domain.

Emerging big data trends show that organizations are getting to the analytical states of their processes, gaining the ability to determine value, and getting to know what their data is doing in a particular state of their business. This also requires the combination of huge amounts of data into common, accessible points that provide mission-critical business intelligence (BI). Data warehousing and the ability to look the value of information, either in an operation state or in a decision support state, are also factors of prime importance.

Nearly all the latest market trends point to the notion of being agile and being customer responsive. Interestingly, not all big data cloud servers are the same. The technology that Microsoft provides is completely different from the technology that Google provides. The time it takes to push a big data project to completion inevitably depends on the technology used by the server. This leads us to the question of which service provider to choose and which to ignore.

To support an adaptive organization, big data is one of the critical elements. The ability of cloud computing to provision computer resources, storage, network capacity and, above all, do all this magic at a moment’s notice makes big data and the cloud the dearest of friends. There is a long way to go, but for now they seem to be friends for life.

Infographic : Understanding Hybrid Cloud Computing

The term “hybrid” can hold a different meaning from industry to industry. Generally speaking, it describes the combination of two things to make one. In the cloud computing industry, there are a series of technologies you can use to run your web environments, from cloud to dedicated.

Users can have a hybrid environment at Rackspace by connecting Cloud Servers and dedicated servers via RackConnect™. Here is a fun illustration that highlights this technology in the simplest of terms.

This illustration is meant to be a general explanation of what “hybrid” means in the cloud computing world. With the Rackspace solution, RackConnect, you do in fact need a firewall to connect dedicated and cloud servers. The data transferred between the two can be done over a private network.
A better explanation can be seen here:


Infographic : How Cloud Computing is Saving the Earth

Since the first Earth Day in 1970, the rise of information technology has meant progress but it has also raised many challenges. Even with green IT initiatives, global data center energy consumption is on the rise and IT departments are continuing to look for ways to become more efficient.

The nature of cloud computing solves for many IT problems and in the infographic below, we have illustrated how cloud computing is making a difference. In addition, projects like Open Compute, are helping IT industries create more efficient data centers.
