I have a new Amalgam Insights paper out called “Providing a Rapid Response to Meltdown and Spectre for Hybrid IT“. It’s sponsored by CloudPassage. The paper is free from them.
There are billions of PCs and mobile devices affected by Meltdown and Spectre. That’s a big problem for OS vendors. For enterprise IT, there is also the need to deal with hundreds of millions of host servers and the virtual machines running on them. Meltdown and Spectre highlight just how difficult it is to update and patch hybrid systems with hosts, virtual machines, containers, and cloud servers in the mix. Don’t despair! There are solutions.
