Reducing IT Operation Costs with Windows 10 Hello for Business
The newer Windows 10 devices with the Hello extensions are definitely going
to have a cost implication, but in today's context in our own consumer world
where every individual has access to Smartphones with advanced biometric
features, why should the enterprise user continue to use the old PCs that are
managed by traditional passwords? I think the cost of transformation to these
devices will be worth the efficiencies in the ITIL operations as well as
improved security to enterprise data. It would be useful to collect data
about OEMs who have Windows 10 PCs with Biometric Hello features and the same
list can be utilized by enterprises. I will write a separate article on
Windows 10 devices for enterprises.

Cloud Expo Early Bird Savings
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers is emerging around cloud computing.
Here, SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Journal expands its list of most active
players in the fast-emerging Cloud Ecosystem, from the 'mere' 100 we
identified back in January of this year, to half as many again - testimony,
if any further were needed, to the fierce and continuing growth of the
"Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing.
Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various
services and solutions in this round-up are in e... (more)
"You need two groups when dealing with cloud compliance," explained Rob
LaMear IV, CEO and Founder of Fpweb.net, in this exclusive Q&A with Cloud
Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan. "First," LaMear continued, "you need a
provider that is willing to operate transparently and work with you and your
auditors. Most seasoned providers are well aware of this symbiotic
relationship and are open to getting it out in the open early."
Cloud Computing Journal: The move to cloud isn't about saving money, it is
about saving time. - Agree or disagree?
Rob LaMear: Agree. Time is money. Focusin... (more)
Lots of little virtual Web applications scale out better than scaling up.
Surprised? I was, but I shouldn’t have been.
While working on other topics I ran across an interesting slide in a
presentation given by Microsoft at TechEd Europe 2009 on virtualization and
Exchange. Specifically the presenter called out the average 12% overhead
incurred from the hypervisor on systems in internal testing. Intuitively it
seems obvious that a hypervisor will incur overhead; it is, after all, an
application that is executing and thus requires CPU, I/O, and RAM to perform
its tasks. That led t... (more)
