The Dangers of Hardware Vendor Lock-in


Hardware Vendor Lock-In: A Long and Messy Past. If you think about the beginnings of networking, hardware lock-in was the norm. Customers demanded interoperability between hardware vendors, and so came Ethernet which promised to be an open, interoperable standard. Yet hardware vendors convoluted the standard, and came out with proprietary routing protocols such as IGRP which were designed to lock customers into the hardware vendor’s equipment exclusively.

Why Does Hardware Matter in a Software-Defined Data Center?

Dell EMC

Today, organizations with a modernized infrastructure (aka “modernized” firms) are much better positioned to handle emerging technologies than their competitors with aging hardware. Modernized firms can quickly scale to meet changing needs. They understand the importance of flexibility, especially when it comes to handling demanding applications and processing the insane amount of data inundating us from all angles!

Use Scrum to Say Goodbye to Risk in Hardware Development

Companies who build hardware often ask if it’s possible to benefit from Scrum. In this blog, I will explain how Risk shows up in hardware development and how Scrum can help keep him at bay. Risk doesn’t care if you’re building software, hardware, clothing, or cookies. You have vendor and supplier risks delivering late parts or services, defective hardware or an end product that doesn’t integrate as planned with yours. Software cannot be written without target hardware.

What Is Hardware Root of Trust?

Dell EMC
