2. Hyper-converged systems will underpin hybrid cloud, says Dell EMC exec – Robert Gates (SearchDataCenter)

Enterprises will increasingly fill data centers with rack-scale hyper-converged infrastructure as the basis for hybrid clouds, says the CTO of Dell EMC’s converged platforms division.

3. IBM AIX users look forward to a cloudy future – Ed Scannell (SearchCloudComputing)

IT organizations that rely on AIX-based applications still whirring away may feel the cloud computing age is passing them by — but help is on the way.

4. Microsoft unveils update guide, fixes Hyper-V on April Patch Tuesday – Dan Cagen (SearchWindowsServer)

Microsoft dropped its security bulletin format on April Patch Tuesday and switched to its Security Update Guide. Windows Server admins should be aware of a Hyper-V host patch.

5. U.S election hacking not an act of cyberwarfare, experts say – Michael Heller (SearchCloudSecurity)
