It’s been a while since I’ve written any documents for my blog.Â I was asked to do some stuff for the company web site so I’ve written a couple of documents.Â The first is on the Microsoft Virtualisation Strategy.Â I talk about how MS views virtualisation as being many things, e.g. Hyper-V/server virtualisation is just one aspect of the solution.Â I also discuss what makes the MS approach different: management.
On a related note, there’s also a document on Cloud Computing and Software-as-a-Service.Â Organisations are tired of becoming accidental IT firms, e.g. they buy a CRM solution and end up managing servers, racks, power, UPS, fire suppression, databases, networking, etc.Â They just wanted a business solution.Â SaaS gives them that solution.Â It’s also good for the software developers/server providers because it simplifies product ownership and increases customer retention.Â Cloud Computing is the delivery mechanism for SaaS.Â And virtualisation is a core component of Cloud Computing because it breaks the link between services and hardware/geographic location.Â Microsoft’s managed virtualisation gives us Managed Cloud Computing thanks to the all-seeing and all-knowing single pane of glass, Microsoft System Center.
