Friday data center tidbits.


The talk of the town today is Google’s new Public DNS service. I can’t believe this is going to be much of an improvement over a well configured local DNS server. Call me a cynic, but I can’t believe Google will resist the temptation to screw with DNS results for their own profit. Deep 6 this turkey.

This morning I also see a story about VEPA, a new virtual switch standard for virtual servers. It certainly sounds like a good idea to allow virtual machines to take advantage of the advanced features of physical switches rather than dumping lots of extra load on the virtual machine host server. I’m just not convinced of the need for a lot of high powered bells and whistles in the VM virtual switch, not to mention what the cost of upgrading physical switches to this is going to be.

Our new Aurora Resilient Cloud Service virtual machine cloud computing service is open for business!
