VMware proporcionará VMware Horizon Cloud en Microsoft Azure

Recientemente hemos anunciado que proprcionaremos VMware Horizon Cloud en Microsoft Azure. Esta integración ayudará a nuestros clientes a acelerar la transición hacia Windows 10 e incorporará escritorios y aplicaciones virtuales VMware a la creciente presencia global de Azure en la empresa.

La incorporación de VMware Horizon Cloud en Microsoft Azure nos situa en una posición privilegiada para ofrecer a sus clientes varias opciones de infraestructura para escritorios y aplicaciones virtuales con la flexibilidad para moverse entre las diferentes plataformas. Este es un ejemplo de cómo VMware ejecuta su estrategia de cross-cloud y aporta innovación al Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS).

Horizon Cloud permite usar un plano de control de nube única para ofrecer a sus clientes la flexibilidad para escoger la infraestructura preferida para entregar y gestionar escritorios y aplicaciones virtuales. Potenciando la estrategia de nube transversal de VMware, los clientes pueden escoger entre varias opciones de implantación y pueden cambiar las opciones de forma dinámica si cambian los escenarios de uso, se trasladan los empleados o la economía fluctúa. Únicamente Horizon Cloud ofrece esta escalabilidad horizontal flexible de escritorios virtuales con opciones que incluyen:

  • Gestión completa de la infraestructura de nube pública desde VMware. Diseñada para organizaciones que pretenden externalizar la gestión de la infraestructura a la nube en busca de una experiencia desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) y excelente para una rápida escalabilidad y una economía predecible.
  • Potenciar la infraestructura de la nube pública desde Microsoft . Conectar la infraestructura como servicio (IaaS) Azure a la Horizon Cloud para proporcionar y gestionar escritorios y aplicaciones virtuales Horizon, ideal para organizaciones con una suscripción Azure.
  • Crear tu propia infraestructura in situ con dispositivos Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI). Diseñado para organizaciones que desean un mayor control sobre la infraestructura de su escritorio virtual, y excelente para aquellos con requisitos estrictos de seguridad o rendimiento.

El DaaS ha madurado a lo largo de los años y hoy ofrece un ahorro de costes, un rendimiento y una agilidad que atrae a empresas en busca de una estrategia de escritorio moderna. La incorporación de una plataforma de nube mayor como Microsoft Azure tiene el potencial para acelerar la adopción de VMware Horizon entre los clientes que buscan un camino diferente para gestionar y proporcionar escritorios y aplicaciones de Windows 10.

Introducing TPCx-HS Version 2 – An Industry Standard Benchmark for Apache Spark and Hadoop clusters deployed on premise or in the cloud

Since its release on August 2014, the TPCx-HS Hadoop benchmark has helped drive competition in the Big Data marketplace, generating 23 publications spanning 5 Hadoop distributions, 3 hardware vendors, 2 OS distributions and 1 virtualizationplatform. By all measures, it has proven to be a successful industry standard benchmark for Hadoop systems. However, the Big Data landscape has rapidly changed over the last 30 months. Key technologies have matured while new ones have risen to prominence in an effort to keep pace with the exponential expansion of datasets. One such technology is Apache Spark.

According to a Big Data survey published by the Taneja Group, more than half of the respondents reported actively using Spark, with a notable increase in usage over the 12 months following the survey. Clearly, Spark is an important component of any Big Data pipeline today. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, there is also a significant trend towards deploying Spark in the cloud. What is driving this adoption of Spark? Predominantly, performance.

Today, with the widespread adoption of Spark and its integration into many commercial Big Data platform offerings, I believe there needs to be a straightforward, industry standard way in which Spark performance and price/performance could be objectively measured and verified. Just like TPCx-HS Version 1 for Hadoop, the workload needs to be well understood and the metrics easily relatable to the end user.

Continuing on the Transaction Processing Performance Council&#rsquo;s commitment to bringing relevant benchmarks to the industry, it is my pleasure to announce TPCx-HS Version 2 for Spark and Hadoop. In keeping with important industry trends, not only does TPCx-HS support traditional on premise deployments, but also cloud.

I envision that TPCx-HS will continue to be a useful benchmark standard for customers as they evaluate Big Data deployments in terms of performance and price/performance, and for vendors in demonstrating the competitiveness of their products.
