Docker Opens Platform With Open Source

The DockerCon 17 conference sees the container platform open up with the announcement of a pair of open source projects-- the LinuxKit subsystem and the Moby Project workflow tool.

On the other hand LinuxKit is a means for developers to build a Linx subsystem using only the services and features required for the application or service they support. It is portable and works on desktop, server, IoT, mainframe, Intel, ARM, bare metal and virtualised deployments, and is managed under the governance of the Linux Foundation.

"Instead of starting from a traditional Linux distribution and trying to shrink it down and make it optimized for containers, we've started [LinuxKit] from nothing and added the bare minimum kernel, the bare minimum system libraries and container runtime and that's it," Docker founder and CTO Solomon Hykes says in his DockerCon keynote. "Everything else is optional because everything else is a container."

VMware Adds Native HCI Security to vSAN 6.6

VMware announces the latest version of the vSAN software-defined storage offering-- vSAN 6.6, the first to include native hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) security.

Native HCI security is a software-defined data-at-rest encryption solution. It features simplified key management and protects against unwanted data access. It is hardware agnostic, meaning admins can select any vSAN-certified hardware, without need for specialised self-encrypting drives (SEDs).

vSAN Encryption is compatible with all vSAN all-flash space efficiency features, such as inline deduplication and compression, and is virtual machine agnostic. It is available in all-flash and hybrid configurations, and integrates with KMIP 1.1 compliant key management technologies.

Gartner: Shift to Hybrid Infrastructure Services Underway

According to Gartner the growth of cloud and industrialised services, coupled with the decline of traditional datacentre outsourcing (DCO), indicate a "massive" shift towards hybrid infrastructure services.

The analyst forecasts cloud, hosting and traditional infrastructure services will come more or less at par in terms of spending by 2020. The traditional DCO market is expected to shrink from $55.1 billion in 2016 to $45.2bn in 2020, while cloud compute services are to grow from $23.3bn in 2016 to $68.4bn in 2020.

Colocation and hosting spending is also to increase-- from $53.9bn in 2016 to $74.5bn in 2020. Infrastructure utlity services (IUS) is forecast to grow from $21.3bn in 2016 to $37bn in 2020, and storage as a service should increase from $1.7bn in 2016 to $2.7bn in 2020.

Oracle Bridges On-Premises, Cloud Storage

Oracle announces Cloud Converged Storage-- an integration of cloud services with on-premises NAS storage, enabled via the ZFS Cloud software included in the latest ZFS Storage Appliance release.

The result, the company says, allows organisations to easily move data and applications to the cloud (or rather the Oracle cloud) without need for external cloud gateways, avoiding software and cloud access license fees. ZFS Cloud can manage environments with different security requirements, support teams, industry standards and skill sets, while reducing cost of ownership by 87%. Or so Oracle claims, at any rate.

IBM and Red Hat Team Up in Hybrid Cloud

IBM announces a collaboration with Red Hat to boost the speed and economics of the OpenStack platform, while allowing enterprises to extend existing Red Hat virtualised and cloud workloads on the IBM Private Cloud.

The team up has IBM become a Red Hat-certified cloud and service provider, giving customers more confidence when using the Red Hat OpenStack platform and Ceph Storage on IBM Private Cloud. In addition, Red Hat Cloud Access will be available on IBM Cloud, allowing Red Hat customers to move unused Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions from their datacentre to a public virtualised cloud environment in IBM Cloud datacentres.

IBM and Red Hat will also jointly sell new offerings for private cloud deployments, including workload migrations, disaster recovery, capacity expansion and datacentre consolidation.
