AWS & VMware: Why You Can Have it All Now

by Alistair Slocombe

on Oct 21, 2016 2:43:46 PM

Sometimes it’s easy to miss something that is actually right in front of you.

At least that’s what it was like for my colleague (who’s going to remain nameless..!).

He’d attended the keynote at VMworld in Barcelona and was in the VMVillage. In his defence, I think he was a little distracted, presumably he was thinking how great the partnership between AWS and VMware would be for some of our customers. Anyway, he was going to meet me outside in one of the bustling gardens, he spots my table, and quickens his pace, until, that is, he walks full tilt, face-first into the glass wall separating him and I.

The Rise of SDN and NV: Strengthening Corporate Infosecurity Policies Like Never Before

by Ryan Coombes

on Oct 29, 2015 12:39:00 PM

A lot has been written about how today’s I.T. Infrastructure security models are broken. The days of securing the perimeter and trusting everything and everybody inside are gone. To make such a statement may seem bold, but you only have to look to a recent Forrester survey* identifying the top three corporate security breaches as (1) the loss/theft of corporate assets; (2) inadvertent misuse by an insider and (3) external attacks targeting corporate systems, to understand that such a statement is far from bold and in fact a matter organisations should start to consider more seriously.

A flying start to 2015: VMware NSX Advance Boot Camp

by Andrew Ferguson

on Feb 27, 2015 3:43:00 PM

2015 got off to a great start as Gyrocom announced I would be jetting off to San Francisco, provided I pulled my finger out and passed the VMware VCP-NV exam! The VCP-NV is VMware’s new professional level qualification in Network Virtualisation, or, as it’s better known ‘VMware NSX’.
