CBR Vodcast: Beyond Virtualisation to Cloud Computing

In this exclusive two-part vodcast, CBR editor Jason Stamper talks to Nick Drabble, Dynamic Infrastructure Leader in IBM's Software Group, about taking the next steps after virtualisation and the move towards cloud computing.

By Jason Stamper

Nick Drabble is Dynamic Infrastructure Leader in IBM’s Software Group in the UK & Ireland. In Part 1 of this exclusive vodcast, I started by asking him what IBM means when it talks about Dynamic Infrastructure. We then discuss the role of virtualisation within this Dynamic Infrastructure, and how companies can best overcome the challenges that analysts say still hamper virtualisation projects.

In Part 2, we move on to discuss the emergent paradigm of cloud computing, and where Drabble believes it will have greatest impact in the enterprise. I also find out a little more about the similarities between cloud computing and what IBM has for some time called On Demand computing.
