Paper: VMware vSphere Virtual Machine Encryption Performance

Read full post . . . or http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Virtualization_info/~3/uMndtFrm3l8/paper-vmware-vsphere-virtual-machine-encryption-performance.html

Encryption of virtual machines is something that has been requested for years by the security community. VMware continued to postpone its implementation due to the negative operational impact that many solutions proved to have, until now. With vSphere 6.5 VMware introduced an agnostic, policy driven VM Encryption feature claiming that the impact on I/O performance is very minimal.
To prove that VMware published a 16 pages Performance Study which presents the results of several I/O experiments aimed to quantify CPU cost and I/O throughput and latency when enabling a VM with encryption.


The paper contains the following sections:

Executive Summary

  • Introduction
  • VM Encryption Overview
  • Design
  • Key Management
  • Performance Study
  • Experimental Setup
  • Server Hardware
  • Server Storage
  • Workload and Virtual Machine Configuration
  • Metrics

Quest Software leaves Dell

Read full post . . . or http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Virtualization_info/~3/VYSiVJfbHjw/quest-software-leaves-dell.html

In September 2012 Dell announced to have completed the acquisition of Quest Software, a Californian company with an history in systems management, security, business intelligence and, falling back in our own area of interest, virtualization, cloud automation and backup & recovery.
Today, after 3 years, Quest is announcing its renewed independency thanks to a new acquisition by Francisco Partners and Elliott Management Corporation.

Dell is currently in the spotlight due to its acquisition of EMC Corporation, owner (among others) of VMware and Pivotal.

Jeff Hawn, chairman and CEO said:

As companies continue to embrace business transformation, particularly through adopting cloud-centric technology models, they need a trusted partner through this critical journey. In relaunching Quest, our products will be purpose-built and backed by a level of support and services that will help our customers and partners succeed. We’ll take the best of what made Quest a market maker for the past 30 years and infuse a renewed focus on security and cloud.
