What VARs are looking for are the truly disruptive technologies.In the last few decades, IT has seen its share of truly great disruptors.
In the ‘80s, Microsoft made it possible to distribute compute resources away from the centralized mainframe.
In the ‘90s, EMC created a way to consolidate storage into shared storage arrays connected through Storage Area Networks (SANs).

Then in the 2000s, VMware introduced the concept of x86 virtualization. When these companies first rose to prominence, they were just startups with small teams and big ideas.

To enable this at a high velocity, companies are instituting DevOps, in which code is constantly written, shipped, run and regularly refined.
In DevOps environments, corporate developers code application functionality, called microservices, which they ship via virtual containers to run between private cloud environments and public cloud systems such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
