New Release: The Gorilla Guide to…® AMD and Nutanix Solutions to Best Run Your Applications in a Hybrid Cloud Environment, Express Edition!

Keeping your computer systems and services in good running order is more and more important as the world comes increasingly to depend on them. The popularity of mobile devices—which give rise to impatient users—and the isolation imposed on most people by COVID-19 have raised the stakes even more.

But outages remain common. The Dec. 25, 2012 Amazon failure remains the most visible, but most sites still go down from time to time. Security breaches, which are becoming nastier and more common, provide another risk to your operations. Businesses are suffering from a shortage of sophisticated network operators and architects who grasp all the features of modern environments.

In AMD and Nutanix Solutions to Best Run Your Applications in a Hybrid Cloud Environment, Express Edition, authors Miller, Green, and Cox give an overview of two complementary technologies addressing current needs. For instance, AMD provides chip-level protections against security attacks, including local encryption.

Nutanix uses the same architectural approach of major sites such as Google, which allows an architecture to scale smoothly and provide quick response times (Figure 1). Key requirements such as high availability and centralized, single-screen administration are built in. Storage is simplified and integrated with the virtual machines (VMs). Security can be provided at a fine-grained, VM level.


This report can be useful to anyone investigation commercial offerings for data centers cloud architects, SREs, and more.
