Systems and Software Infrastructure

Covering the evolution of compute platforms within both the datacenter and enterprise environments, as well as the hardware and software needed to operate enterprise-class infrastructure.


The Systems and Software Infrastructure Channel covers the entire range of compute platforms, including the hardware and software needed to operate enterprise-class infrastructure. This includes servers (x86, enterprise servers, blade servers, appliances, hyper-dense servers and high-performance computing systems), and the semiconductors and interconnects used within those servers (multi-core and multithread CPUs, low-energy cores, many-core processors and systems-on-a-chip). This channel's coverage spans system software (operating systems, virtualization and hypervisors) and systems management technologies (system automation, load balancing, workload optimization and converged management). The Systems and Software Infrastructure Channel also tracks developments in the evolution of compute platforms within both the datacenter and enterprise environments.

ScienceLogic targets new use case aimed at frustrated CMDB users

ScienceLogic, which offers an infrastructure monitoring platform, late last year began selling a package catering to a new use case: incident response. The offering leverages the range of monitoring data that ScienceLogic already collects in order to keep CMDBs accurate and then enable a variety of automation with the goal of improving incident response.

Toward the Software-Defined Datacenter

The term 'software-defined datacenter' implies a broadening of first-wave virtualization adoption beyond compute and into adjacent domains, primarily networking and storage. Software-defined technologies span on-premises systems and cloud services, and are equally applicable to small businesses and the largest hyperscalers.
