Only a handful of months have past since issue zero of GURU advisor, but I’m happy to say that the site is growing rapidly and there is even more content to read and products to discover with this month’s issue.
We tried GravityZone, the antivirus solution developed by Bitdefender: lots of you are evaluating, or have already adopted, the logic of Managed Service Providers and look for managed solutions with which keep under control the computers of the clients without having to spend entire afternoons to remote control into server and PCs to check that there are no problems.
Gravity Zone by Bitdefender goes straight into this direction, so we hope you’ll find it interesting, also considering the aggressive price policy they are adopting.
VMware’s been talking of Cloud Native Apps and Containers for a long time: a lot of products that use these technologies are still in the development phase, however we decided to introduce you the new architecture. We’ll start with a little bit of theory in this number, but we’ll get more practical with January’s issue.
Apart from price and performances, when we talk about storage we know that obviously nobody wants to renounce to data integrity. We’ve seen in more depth the SATA and SAS technologies and the typologies of disks available on the market to help you to better understand the differences and evaluate with carefulness your choices.
You’ll enjoy for sure the other reviews, like an HP switch, the very interesting ProxMox project and SecurePass, a strong centralized authentication system. We’ll continue with the OpenStack and VMware columns, in addition to our guide in the choice of a VPS.
We’d like to wish you happy holidays and don’t forget that the January issue will be even richer!
