Is the end of the traditional data center in sight?


We all know that the cloud is growing at the expense of server rooms and data centers. But Cisco predicts in its Cisco Global Cloud Index that by 2021 “hyperscale data centers” will represent 53 percent of all installed data center servers.

Kubernetes is the number one container orchestration program, but still faces challenges


Kubernetes is the top cloud container orchestration program, but that doesn’t mean it’s home free. A Platform 9 survey at the most recent KubeCon in Austin identified both strong and weak points for the program. First, the good news: Kubernetes is gaining new users and developers rapidly.
