  • Notes: Understand the application – One size does not fit all Different applications have different needs Certain applications are locked to certain systems and OSes We fit the hardware and the virtualization technology to the application&apos;s needs Allow you to use multiple virtualization technologies at the same time – get the best from all worlds Management of these environments is key Getting a good overview of your physical and virtual assets Controlling the different virtualization technologies from a single pane of glass Allowing you to change your (virtual) datacenter to fit the evolving business needs
  • Solaris Containers - High performance network and I/O (this talks to that Containers have no impact on I/O) - Consolidate old Solaris versions (this talks to Solaris 8/9 Containers) - Limit the security breach of your web application (this talks to the way the Vatican locked down their website) Logical Domains - Migrate VMs to fit business changes - Most of the hypervisor built into the chip (this talks to the v12n optimization in Niagara which helps with performance) - Redundant I/O paths (this talks to the RAS capabilities in LDOMs) xVM Server &amp; VMware ESX - Run any x86 OS on shared infrastructure (this talks to the OS heterogeneousness) - Migrate VMs to fit business changes (this talks to live migration) - Move old OSes onto newer share/more efficient hardware (this talks to consolidation of old x86 systems onto new ones)
  • Key points: Cloud is a popular current buzzword. Start-ups have cloud terminology in their business plans. All the big players in IT have a cloud program. Pretty much anything that translates to paying less for today&apos;s infrastructure is being rolled up under the banner of cloud computing. But cloud means different things to different people. Details: There are two things driving the excitement around cloud computing: 1) Controlling costs – amplified by today&apos;s economy, there is a need to get much more efficient in building next-generation data centers 2) An explosion in unstructured data – not just what we put into Oracle or MySQL, but click data, behavior data, rich data, tag data. Everything from the terabyte of pictures that go onto Facebook every day to the clickstream data on a wireless network from people who are consuming content on their phones. Unstructured data is forcing us to look at new ways of managing and deriving value from the data. Transition: Cloud computing brings a new level of efficiency to delivering IT resources on demand; and in the process it opens up new business models and market opportunities.
  • There will be many clouds, both public and private.  We want them to be open and compatible.  One of the things driving cloud computing is that because of the wide availability of open source software and components, people can now rapidly assemble applications out of open source components and run them in the cloud.  And of course, we want these clouds to be powered by Sun technology.
