Data consumers need a "data supermarket," whereby all data, regardless of source, format, or volume, is easily accessible; what they need is data virtualization. Data virtualization forms a virtual data layer, just like a supermarket, that lies between the data sources and the consuming applications. Instead of working with copies of the data itself, data virtualization works only with the metadata (the information needed to access each source) in a virtual data layer. In an increasingly data-driven world, fast access to data is key for making real-time business decisions, so why waste precious time, money, and resources using outdated data integration tools, when you can "shop" with ease using data virtualization?
As the Internet of Things (IoT) revs up the automotive industry, connected cars are becoming "devices on wheels" with in-vehicle systems connected to the Internet. Therefore, car manufacturers must develop new services and applications to provide consumers with more personalized driving options. Collecting and analyzing this data will help carmakers understand user preferences, develop new applications, and give consumers a wider, more personalized range of driving choices. To get new automotive IT services to market quickly, carmakers may wish to partner with application developers, IT security companies, and enterprise companies with established cloud-based infrastructures and data analysis experience.
Chuck and Ravi are the two main characters in a fictional podcast series, written by SciFutures, to help VMware promote the ideas of network virtualization and business mobility. Why is a virtualization software company sponsoring a podcast series that spoofs classic science fiction movies? To accomplish that, VMware turned to SciFutures, an agency that uses science fiction to help companies -- from VMware to Visa -- convey their vision of the future. For VMware, SciFutures was tasked with using science fiction to convey the benefits of network virtualization and business mobility.
As a result, SQL database administrators, VMware infrastructure managers, network managers and perhaps other domain experts have to collaborate to find the real cause and devise a solution. In addition, SIOS iQ users can now more clearly define Microsoft SQL Server application-specific root causes of performance issues by leveraging SQL Sentry Performance Advisor. SQL Server is among the most popular databases that run on the VMware platform, explaining why SIOS leveraged its partnership with SQL Sentry to implement SQL Server-specific performance analysis. The new capabilities from SIOS iQ directly correlate observed performance anomalies with intelligent performance-related events from deep within the SQL Server platform.
SIOS Technology Corp., the industry's leading provider of software products that help IT ensure the performance, efficiency, and high availability protection of business critical applications, today announced it will co-host a live one-hour webinar featuring ActualTech Media Partner and VMware vExpert Scott D. Lowe who will show how using new machine learning based analytics tools can resolve application performance issues in virtualized environments.
