In this post, I’ve presented 20 different online storage service providers with their free offerings, minimum-maximum paid volume plans and finally derived the per-gigabyte storage costs. No part of this website or any of its contents may be reproduced, copied, modified or adapted, without the prior written consent of the author, unless otherwise indicated for stand-alone materials. GCPLive Google has dramatically lowered its cloud prices far below those of its rivals – as the search kingpin seeks to eradicate the fat profit margins of the cloud industry. The web giant announced today at its Google Cloud Platform event in San Francisco a 68 per cent price drop across the board for Google Cloud Storage – as El Reg told you over a week ago – along with a 32 per cent cut in on-demand compute pricing, and an 85 per cent price cut for its Big Query data analysis engine. The advertising giant noted that cloud prices across the industry were falling by about 6 per cent each year, whereas hardware costs were falling by 20 per cent. It also introduced a new automatic price reduction called "sustained-use discounts" that will lower prices for customers further as they use Google's services more – a service that directly takes on Amazon's reserved instances. The Google Cloud Platform competes with services from rivals Amazon and Microsoft, along with various second-tier operators such as Rackspace, Joyent, Tier3, Savvis CenturyLink, Verizon Terremark, and so on.
Like Microsoft, Google woke late to threat posed by Amazon Web Services and, also like Microsoft, has invested heavily first in platform services like Google App Engine, and then infrastructure tech like Google Compute Engine, to help it catch up. Since then, Google has become competitive on both a performance and pricing standpoint with its chief rivals, but has failed to develop the expansive set of services and associated ecosystem that Amazon and, to a lesser extent, Microsoft can call their own.
With these changes on Tuesday, Google has instantly become the cloud leader in terms of price by a wide, wide margin.

Undoubtedly, one of the first questions my cloud-focused prospects ask me is, “How can VMTurbo help with my public cloud deployment?” Sometimes, people seem to think that VMTurbo’s use cases end at the walls of their datacenter. I’ve always considered moving to the cloud as Virtualization 2.0, similar to moving from the physical to the hypervisor ruled world.
One of the best ways I’ve found that VMTurbo can help quantify hard dollar savings, is by calculating the monthly savings of properly rightsizing VMs prior to cloud deployment. Second, you can input your public cloud plan’s cost per allocated resource into VMTurbo, as well as the cost per host of your internal data center. Then, running the VM Rightsizing Recommendations report against your “Public Cloud Deployment Phase 1” group will show you actual $ savings for rightsizing with VMTurbo.
What we end up with is a single line item, in this case $1,150, that shows the monthly cost that VMTurbo has saved you for this phase of public cloud deployment. Learn about the 3 key elements to consider as you adopt the Public Cloud: Performance, Cost, & Agility. The most complex and costly storage challenges are entirely related to storing and managing data over a life cycle that must be longer than reasonable on rapidly evolving digital systems. The lifecycle of data and information management within the business is tremendously long, complex and costly because data must be moved and manipulated. Pairing the cloud with this primary source of data creation presents the opportunity to touch nearly every piece of business data at the very point in time when it is created, and this can put an end to these separate practices.
Retention: Data could be captured for archive and compliance as soon as it is created, and then transferred into the cloud when the time is right, without requiring separate applications, storage appliances, and IT processes. Disaster: Meanwhile, primary data could still be synchronized with the cloud periodically to create offsite replicas that could, if done right, forever replace complex disaster recovery technologies, dispense with tape and physical transport, and provide a master repository from which recovery data could be accessed, from anywhere. These are not small challenges to tackle, but the potential improvements we've highlighted in these examples can create a massive transformation in the practice and costs of data storage and management and reduce a surfeit of technologies to one single data storage and management array. While there is vast room for considerable innovation and differentiation, we can boil the fundamental requirements for delivering CES down to a few capabilities. Just as importantly, CES requires state of the art primary storage features, that are entirely array-integrated.
Finally, delivering CES is more than simply turning to the cloud as a parking lot for old data. Only a few vendors have broken through in delivering what we consider true CES, although there are several who have begun steadfastly moving in the direction of CES. Among new innovators, there are many cloud-attached appliances serving up various incarnations of product similar to CES. Such solutions will no doubt continue to deliver significant value, but if selecting a vendor on the promise of transforming the entire lifecycle of data storage, pay close attention to their current product and the practicality of their promised roadmap. Die Preise pro GB sind in den letzten Jahren stark gefallen, aber manchmal hat man den Eindruck, dass sie so oft geandert werden, wie an der Tankstelle. Die letzte USB 3 Platte, die ich vor ca 2 Jahren gekauft hab, kam mit ein paar Programmen (Verschlusselung, .. Genauso gut kann ich eine 32 GB-SSD von Damals mit einer 2 TB-SSD von heute vergleichen und komm auch nicht auf einen gunstigeren Preis.
Als ich vor etwa 16 Jahren (oder langer) einen Internetanschluss benotigte, habe ich mich damals fur T-Online entschieden.
Ist man damals in einen T-Punkt Laden gegangen (die gehorten T-Online, also dem Anbieter) und hat sich ein Anschlu? geholt, hat es (den genauen Preis habe ich nicht mehr im Kopf, aber ich runde es auf) um die 120 DM gekostet. The founder of one of the startups in our Global Entrepreneur Program reached out to me this week. Often, startups consist of a hacker and a hustler—where the tech person is the hacker and the non-tech person is the hustler. Getting that first customer is incredibly important, but there needs to be a value exchange. When putting a new product in the market, especially one in an industry not enamored with startups and where phrases like “beta access” will net you funny looks, it helps to build credibility. When you have interest and are in negotiations, you can then mention to other prospective customers that you’re in negotiations with several companies. Following this method, you can build credibility in the market, show outside interest in your product, and maintain an ethical standing. As a founder, you’re the most passionate person about your business and therefore the most qualified to get out and sell.
Conventionally, the sales department’s style consists of men and women dressed to the nines—tailored suits and expensive Italian shoes. Once a prospective client is qualified, they are placed in the sales funnel, and that’s when the fun begins. But in the cloud industry, where “on-demand” is the name of the game, following the conventional sales process can be a bottleneck in and of itself. In the cloud, there’s no time for face-to-face with the customer, so most opt for comfortable t-shirts and jeans over tailored suits and fine Italian leather shoes. Although the cloud marketplace today looks saturated, the providers offering genuine cloud services are few and far between, and the disparity between the services they offer are abundant, laying waste to the theory that cloud is a commodity. Some cloud consumers I have spoken to confess to choosing their hosting provider based on convenience rather than value offering. On the flip side are companies in non-Internet-centric industries—banking, health care, oil & gas, and aerospace. Will the same value proposition work for both Internet-centric and non-Internet-centric companies? With Internet-centric companies (where servers constitute up to 95 percent of CAPEX), the majority of the workforce is server-savvy.
The truth is: Unlike basic commodities (electricity, gas, or cable), where there is little or no differentiation between what the end user gets irrespective of the provider, cloud and hosting in general are different. To test and disprove this theory, I brought a customer’s systems engineer (a server expert) into a sales discussion with the CTO.
I requested to put the price negotiations on hold for about 4 hours, and evaluate the services first. There are many different facets wherein SoftLayer outperforms the competition but unfortunately, most prospective customers only see price. For the non-Internet-centric companies, to reach the price discussion is a milestone in itself.

I hear this question almost daily: “What’s the difference between the Vyatta Network OS offered by SoftLayer and the SoftLayer Vyatta Gateway Appliance?” The honest answer is, from a software perspective, nothing. SoftLayer offers customers the ability to spin up different bare metal or virtual server configurations, and choose either the community or subscription edition of the Vyatta Network operating system. While it’s true that the Vyatta Gateway Appliance has the same functionality as a server running the Vyatta Network operating system, one of the primary differences is that the Vyatta Gateway Appliance is delivered as a true gateway. This configuration allows SoftLayer to create an outside, unprotected interface (in the transit VLAN) and an inside, protected interface (on your bare metal server or virtual server VLAN).
This differs from a server deployed with the Vyatta Network OS because hosts behind the Vyatta Network OS server can route around it by simply changing their default gateway back to the SoftLayer default gateway.
In the wake of our recent Vyatta network gateway appliance product launch, I thought I'd address some of the most common questions customers have asked me about the new offering. To begin, let's explore the simplest question I've been asked: "What is a network gateway?" A network gateway provides tools to manage traffic into and out of one or more VLANs (Virtual Local Area Networks). The general function of a network gateway may seem a little abstract, so let's look at a couple real world use cases to see how you can put that functionality to work in your own cloud environment.
You have a multi-server cloud environment and a complex set of firewall rules that allow certain types of traffic to certain servers from specific addresses. After you order a gateway appliance in the SoftLayer portal and configure which VLANs route through the appliance, the process of configuring the device is simple: You define your production, development and QA environments with distinct traffic rules, and the network gateway handles the traffic segmentation.
You want to create a static NAT (Network Address Translation) so that you can direct traffic through a public IP address to an internal IP address. In addition to the IPv4 address-saving benefits, your static NAT adds a layer of protection for your internal web servers from the public network, and as we discussed in the first example, your gateway device also serves as a single configuration point for both inbound and outbound firewall rules. If you have complex network-related needs, and you want granular control of the traffic to and from your servers, a gateway appliance might be the perfect tool for you. One of the hosts of a popular Sirius XM radio talk show was recently in the market to lease a car, and a few weeks ago, he shared an interesting story.
After sifting through all of the paperwork, the host admitted the offer was technically legitimate: He could lease a new Nissan Sentra for $0 down and $59 per month for two years.
Let's say the mileage on the Sentra was charged at $0.15 per mile and that the car would be driven a very-conservative 5,000 miles per year.

At this point, you might be wondering why this story found its way onto the SoftLayer Blog, and if that's the case, you don't see the connection: Most cloud computing providers sell cloud servers like that car lease. The "on demand" and "pay for what you use" aspects of cloud computing make it easy for providers to offer cloud servers exclusively as short-term utilities: "Use this cloud server for a couple of days (or hours) and return it to us. Instead of discussing the costs in theoretical terms, let's look at a real world example: One of our competitors offers an entry-level Linux cloud server for just over $15 per month (based on a 730-hour month). As a buyer, it's important that you make your buying decisions based on your specific use case. As a member of the illustrious the SoftLayer sales (SLales) team, I have the daily pleasure of talking with any number of potential, prospective, new and current customers, and in many of those conversations, I've picked up on a fairly common theme: FEAR.
This phobia is best summarized by the saying, "Better the devil you know than the devil you don't." Users with this phobia could suffer from frequent downtime, a lack of responsive support and long term commitment contracts, but their service is a known quantity.
It's easy to get overwhelmed when considering a change of cloud hosting for any piece of your business, and it's even more intimidating when you feel like it has to be an "all or nothing" decision. Unless you are afflicted with euphobia (the fear of hearing good news), you'll be happy to hear that these common fears, once properly diagnosed, are quickly and easily curable on the SoftLayer platform.
This might be a lighthearted look at some quirky fears, but I don't want to downplay how significant these phobias are to the developers and entrepreneurs that suffer from them.
If you've seen "professional" video data center tours in the past, you're probably positioning a pillow on top of your keyboard right now to protect your face if you fall asleep from boredom when you hear another baritone narrator voiceover and see CAD mock-ups of another "enterprise class" facility. If you want to see more videos like this one, "Like" it, leave comments with ideas and questions, and share it wherever you share things (Facebook, Twitter, your refrigerator, etc.). Cloud Expo East and Cloud Expo West are two of the biggest shows SoftLayer sponsors every year. For the last few months, we've been sketching, editing and tweaking our vision of the booth. In addition to the hundreds of conversations we had with attendees about SoftLayer's cloud computing capabilities, it was pretty amazing to me that so many people commented on our booth design. When conference attendees weren't watching the Server Challenge craziness or ducking to avoid an errant SoftLayer frisbee, we had a few more "oohs" and "ahhs" to share.
Off the expo floor, SoftLayer CTO Duke Skarda and Vice President of Product Innovation Marc Jones announced our new product, Private Clouds.
Amazon will have to dig deep to battle Google for business now and developers will reap the proceeds of this brutal margin-destroying war. There are certainly both pros and cons to Public Clouds, however, despite the uncertainty, moving workloads out of the datacenter has been a 2016 initiative for many of my recent prospects. So, when it comes to tackling Virtualization 2.0, be smart and don’t make the same mistake twice! CES will have resounding and lasting impact on the practice of storage because that life cycle begins when data is created on primary storage.
The consequent cost savings will drive cloud integration to the forestage of the primary storage market. This could unlock highly virtualized, hosted DR on-demand, and do away with wasted standby conventional infrastructure. While each may seem simple or common place on its own, it is the synergistic integration of these capabilities that will create an enormous breakthrough in how we store data and deliver a comprehensive set of features such as those in Figure 4.
As usual, primary storage must include the best clustered, active-active controllers designed for non-stop operation, enterprise components, and redundancy throughout.
Such features include internal array virtualization that reduces complexity and harnesses all disks into a single pool of easy to use storage, thin-provisioning, a full set of snapshot and cloning technology, flexible replication, and enterprise caliber management and visibility.
The cloud requires unique integration, and vendors that fail to innovate may serve up additional capacity, but they will fall far short of enhancing and extending an array to tackle complex lifecycle problems.
It stands to eliminate the most complex storage tasks in the data center, without any more infrastructure alteration than the replacement or addition of a primary storage array. Cloud-integrated Enterprise Storage stands to be transformative across all data storage practices, and will alter the cost equation of enterprise storage. Nach der Flutkatastrophe in Thailand sank die Produktionskapazitat stark und die Preise stiegen auf das Doppelte. He's worried about facing a few problems, including working with business owners who don’t normally work with startups. Be respectful of the companies you’re in negotiations with; I wouldn't recommend mentioning names unless you have explicit permission to do so. Get quotes from them about the product, and put those on your site and marketing materials.
At this point, you’re not selling; you’re just trying to understand why the person you’re talking to is saying no.
Dharmesh Shah, co-founder and CTO of Hubspot and creator of the community OnStartups, authored a post with 10 Ideas For Those Critical Early Startup Sales that is well worth reading. Cloud, by its very nature, allows for spontaneity—such that by the time conventional salesmen arrange a wine-and-dine meeting, the new breed of cloud salesmen have already closed the deal and happy customers are accessing their deployed servers. And in the absence of these things, products and services provide the wow factor that lure customers. Today, there are ads boasting price advantages and overtly dramatized high-pitch marketing punch lines promising unrealistic offerings. Are you looking to host a new application or are you looking to move an existing application from another hosting provider or from an in-house environment?
Cloud providers who are household names try as much as they can to blur the differences between offerings and propagate the doctrine of cloud being a commodity.
These companies clearly see the advantages that come with having their servers (the backbone of their business) hosted by a specialist.
This means there is a very high chance any contact we have with these companies will be with a server-savvy fellow. To do this, I asked for the exact configuration that the customer had hosted with a competitor.
Pricing negotiations only begin when the need and suitability (originality) have been established. The server is deployed like any other host on the SoftLayer platform with a public and private interface placed in the VLANs selected while ordering.
As part of the configuration, we set up SoftLayer routers to static route all IP space that belongs to the associated VLANs to the Vyatta Gateway Appliance transit VLAN IP address. This allows you to use the gateway appliance to create granular segmentation between different VLANs within your environment, and set up a traditional tiered infrastructure environment with ingress and egress rules between the tiers.
The Vyatta Network OS server is placed in a single public and private VLAN, and there is no option to associate different VLANs with the server. As always, if you have any questions or concerns about any of SoftLayer’s products or services, the sales and sales engineering teams are happy to help.
With inquiries spanning the spectrum from broad and general to detailed and specific, I might not be able to cover everything in this blog post, but at the very least, it should give a little more context for our new network gateway offering. The network gateway serves a customer-configurable routing device that sits in front of designated VLANs. Without a network gateway, you would need to configure multiple hardware and software firewalls throughout your topology and maintain multiple rules sets, but with the network gateway appliance, you streamline your configuration into a single point of control on both the public and private networks.
If you wanted to create your own VPN to connect your hosted environment to your office or in-house data center, that configuration is quick and easy as well.
With the IPv4 address pool dwindling and new allocations being harder to come by, this configuration is becoming extremely popular to accommodate users who can't yet reach IPv6 addresses.
You get the control you want and save yourself a significant amount of time and effort configuring and tweaking your environment on-the-fly.
In his research, he came across an offer he came across that seemed "too good to be true": Lease a new Nissan Sentra with no money due at signing on a 24-month lease for $59 per month.
Unfortunately, he also found that "lease" is just about the extent of what he could do with it for $59 per month. At the end of the two-year lease, the 10,000 miles on the car would amount to a $1,500 mileage charge. We'll just charge you for what you use." From a buyer's perspective, this approach is easy to justify because it limits the possibility of excess capacity — paying for something you're not using. As soon as you "drive your server off the lot" and start using it, that "fantastic" rate starts becoming less and less fantastic. You find the lowest price and mentally justify the cost-per-GB bandwidth charge you receive at the end of the month because you know that you're getting value from the traffic that used that bandwidth. Are you going to spin up and spin down instances throughout the month or are you looking for a cloud server that is going to stay online the entire month?
Symptoms of this phobia include recurring discomfort associated with the thought of learning a new management system or deviating from a platform where users have become experts.
I want to move Application A to the more-qualified Company 2, but if I do that, I'll have to move Applications B through Z to Company 2 also.
There are no known side effects from treatment, and patients experience immediate symptom relief with a full recovery in between 1-3 months. If any of these fears strike a chord with you, reach out to the SLales team (by phone, chat or email), and we'll help you create a treatment plan. The infrastructure in our data centers is the hardware platform on which many of our customers build and run their entire businesses, so it's not surprising that they'd want a first-hand look at what's happening inside the DC.
We can post pictures, share stats, describe our architecture and show you diagrams of our facilities, but those mediums can't replace the experience of an actual data center tour. Naturally, our new "Build the Future" branding was present, and you could see the simple "Our Platform.
Many attendees noticed that our booth gets bigger and bigger every year, and the fact that our booth towered over most of the other booths in the area made that a pretty easy observation.
The infamous Server Challenge continued to draw crowds and spark conversations in the new booth.
Whether coming from upper management or from those actively managing the datacenter, many organizations are interested in at least learning more about Public Cloud offerings, and what it means for their business. One example that comes to mind is an online transaction focused retailer that has been told from management that 20% of their workloads need to live in AWS in the next 6 months. The integration of cloud and primary storage systems for the first time enables primary storage to deliver features and data management well beyond physically limited devices, systems or data centers. Within each of these practices and storage silos, the cloud has so far delivered innovative possibilities for reducing complexity and cost of ownership.
Moreover, today performance is a hotbed of innovation, and customers are steadily coming to expect uniquely integrated and always optimized high IO media (solid state) alongside exceptional approaches to caching that can constantly deliver maximized performance but simultaneously auto-tier data to rotational disk to minimize the cost of capacity. Innovative integration will reach beyond capacity expansion and provide effortless, always-on backup, seamless offsite data protection, instant DR from anywhere, cloud provider lock-in elimination, and total performance and capacity optimization irrespective of where data is located.

Such potential can yield a massive transformation in the total cost of ownership for storage, and it will foment rapid innovation in this market. Some time ago the 3PAR team began crafting innovative cloud partnerships under the banner of their CloudAgile program. Despite the founder being deeply technical, he is the closest thing they have to a hustler. He wants to give the product away for free to a few customers to get some momentum, but is worried that after giving it away, he won’t be able to convert them to paying customers. If you do feel strongly about giving it away for free, put milestones and limitations in place for how and when that customer will convert to paid. I recommend being honest, and framing it by saying, “We’re deciding who we want to work with first. It could be they don't have the decision-making authority, they don't have the budget, they need to see more, or the product is missing something important. As the cloud marketplace matures, the success of this strategy has an expiration date—soon!
The IT infrastructure (servers to be precise) accounts for less than 5 percent of their capital expenditure (CAPEX) as opposed to almost 95 percent for Internet-centric companies. Selling SoftLayer will then be a question of how SoftLayer’s USPs differentiate from the competition. I ordered the exact configuration on the SoftLayer platform and within 2 hours the servers were ready. Once online, you can route traffic through the Vyatta Network server by changing the default gateway on your hosts to use the Vyatta Network server IP rather than the default gateway. It means that the Vyatta Gateway Appliance is the only entry and exit point for traffic on VLANs you associate with it. The servers you have in a VLAN associated with gateway appliance can no longer use the SoftLayer default gateway to route in and out of the VLAN. The servers in those VLANs route through the network gateway appliance as their first hop instead of Front-end Customer Routers (FCR) or Back-end Customer Routers (BCR). The high-touch challenge of managing several sets of network rules across multiple devices is simplified and streamlined.
This challenge would normally require a significant level of effort of even the most seasoned systems administrator, but with the gateway appliance, it's a painless process.
You can terminate IPSec VPN tunnels, execute your own network address translation, and run diagnostic commands such as traffic monitoring (tcpdump) on your global environment.
The car would as "base" as a base model could be, but a reliable car that can be driven safely from Point A to Point B doesn't need fancy "upgrades" like power windows or an automatic transmission.
The fine print revealed that the yearly mileage allowance was 0 (zero) — he'd pay a significant per-mile rate for every mile he drove the car.
While that structure is effective (and inexpensive) for customers who sporadically spin up virtual server instances and turn them down quickly, for the average customer looking to host a website or application that won't be turned off in a given month, it's a different story.
But you'd be better off getting a more powerful server that includes a bandwidth allotment. From there, you should estimate your bandwidth usage to get an idea of the actual monthly cost you can expect for a given cloud server. We're talking about fear that paralyzes users and holds them captive — effectively preventing their growth and limiting their business's potential.
If you don't suffer from pessimisobia, this phobia probably seems silly, but it's very evident in many of the conversations I have. There's an efficiency to being comfortable with how a particular platform works, but the ceiling to that efficiency is the platform itself. Once you address and conquer these fears, you can devote all of your energy back to getting over your selenophobia (fear of the moon).
In the interest of bridging the "data center tour" gap for customers who might not be able to visit SoftLayer in person (or who want to show off their infrastructure), we decided to record a video data center tour. As attendees were moving down the escalators into the exhibition hall, they were greeted by the SoftLayer.
If an attendee had a question about our portal, our pricing or our API, we could fire up a browser and use the SoftLayer-sponsored conference wifi to take them where they needed to go. If you didn't see that announcement or you want to learn more, Nathan Day (SoftLayer's Chief Scientist) posted a fantastic blog coinciding with SoftLayer's private clouds release, and Duke followed up with an in depth look at how and why we chose to build private clouds the way we did. If you're in the Silicon Valley for Cloud Expo West (November 5-8), we won't be hard to spot. Here I’ve prepared a table to show the lowest possible cost of per gigabyte online storage at the current market price. Such storage can eradicate or at least massively reduce the need to move and manipulate stored data.
But each of these practices, even with new technologies, remains an isolated silo and each carries enormous cost. First-generation cloud-attached storage devices were too often dependent upon a cloud connection for the use of their features; such systems are not ready to delivery primary storage that must be always-on.
The combination of those features will enable a single physical device to reach far beyond physical boundaries and handle all data storage lifecycle needs. Hitachi has more recently moved toward CES by linking their BlueArc (NAS) and Panasas (scale-out file storage) acquisitions to offsite, Hitachi Content Platform storage.
Hat man sich das Produkt beim Anbieter direkt geholt, war es teuer, bei jeden anderen hat man es fur einen Bruchteil bekommen. I'm sure he'll do fine getting in front of customers, but the fact remains that he's never done sales.
For example, agree to a three-month free trial that becomes a paid fee in the fourth month. We want to find the right customer who is willing to work closely with us at the early stage.
The point is, you don’t know, and your goal here is to get to the next step in their process. When the customer’s system engineer tested the performance of the SoftLayer server and compared it to what they had from a competitor, the price comparison was thrown out the window for good.
You have the option to configure ingress and egress ACLs for your bare metal or virtual servers that route through the Vyatta Network server.
When you place an order for the Vyatta Gateway Appliance and select your public and private VLANs, the Vyatta Gateway Appliance comes online with its native VLAN for its public and private interfaces in a transit VLAN.
From an infrastructure perspective, SoftLayer's network gateway offering consists of a single server, and in the future, the offering will be expanded to multi-server configurations to support high availability needs and larger clustered configurations. And in addition to that, your gateway serves as a single point of contact to configure sophisticated firewall rules! Even for a car that would be used sparingly, the numbers didn't add up, so the host wound up leasing a nicer car (that included a non-zero mileage allowance) for the same monthly cost. If your server sends 300GB of data outbound every month, you pay $36 in bandwidth charges (for a combined monthly total of $51). If you don't expect to use 300GB of outbound bandwidth in a given month, your usage might be best suited for that competitor's offering.
Cloud Expo is one of my favorite conferences, and New York City is one of my favorite cities, so I had a lot to be excited about. By the time the design was finalized, we were on pins and needles in anticipation, waiting for the booth leap off the paper. While some attendees were hesitant to step up to try their hands at the competition, others were eager to accept the challenge. If no one was using the computers, the screens would show a flashy video that included some interesting SoftLayer facts and a look at a SoftLayer Truck Day. I’ve always been interested in emerging technologies, and was naturally drawn to VMTurbo’s unique economic approach.
Letztendlich verkauft INTENSO Festplatten in einer Plastikbox und gibt ihr Mengenrabatt weiter. Or tie specific milestones to the payment, such as delivering new product features or achieving objectives for the client. As a service giant in the IT Sector, IBM can and will build on SoftLayer’s IaaS prowess to conquer this landscape.
The Vyatta Network server can also be configured as a VPN end point to terminate Internet Protocol Security (IPSEC), Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE), or OpenSSL VPN connections, and securely connect to the SoftLayer Private Network.
The VLANs you selected are trunked to the gateway appliance’s public and private interfaces via an 802.1q trunk setup on the server’s interface switch ports.
But then again, it's probably worth mentioning that that SoftLayer's base virtual server instance has twice the RAM, more disk space and higher-throughput network connections than the competitor's offering we compared against.
Even when a flood of people would come hunting for the new SoftLayer flexi-frisbees we were giving out after they heard Duke or Marc present. The issue we see with public cloud deployments, is that organizations are generally taking their VMs and spinning up the same sized templates in the cloud. Hobbies include: fervent New England Patriots fan, discovering new music, and struggling to play bogey golf. In each case these traditional legacy vendors have taken the first step by integrating their primary storage with their own "private cloud." We expect the next step will be to integrate with the pubic cloud. The synergies that are coming from this acquisition will send shockwaves across the industry. These VLANs will show up in the customer portal as associated VLANs for the Vyatta Gateway Appliance.
Just like many VMs were based on prior physical specs, they are drastically oversizing cloud instances. Vielleicht war sich T-Online nicht ganz sicher was das eigentliche Produkt ist: der Anschlu? oder den Anschlu? zu verkaufen? While oversized VMs can be tolerated in a standard VM infrastructure, paying for allocated versus used resources in the public cloud can be extremely costly. Vielleicht dachten sie sich, der normale Kunde geht nicht in Elektronikladen, also machen wir etwas Extrakohle.
