[session] #DevOps in Multi-Cloud | @CloudExpo @Cedexis #SDN #DataCenter

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 09:30:00 EDT

Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chief Architect at Cedexis, will cover strategies for orchestrating global traffic achieving the highest-quality end-user experience while spanning multiple clouds and data centers and reacting at the velocity of modern development teams.

Scorecard for #SaaS | @CloudExpo #DevOps #AI #SaaS #FinTech #DataCenter

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 04:00:00 EDT

The balanced scorecard (BSC) is a tool that organizations have used for many years to measure strategic, operational and financial performance. The concept behind the BSC is simple: a company and/or business unit prioritizes a set of 15 to 20 financial and non-financial metrics across four quadrants linked to the company’s market and operations strategy in order to measure and manage performance. While the BSC is a good organizing framework and remains relevant today, it needs a major shift to be effective in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) world where traditional BSC measures don’t adequately gauge and predict performance.

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 00:00:00 EDT

“DevOps is really about the business. The business is under pressure today, competitively in the marketplace to respond to the expectations of the customer. The business is driving IT and the problem is that IT isn't responding fast enough," explained Mark Levy, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Serena Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

DevSecOps: Embracing Automation | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #DevSecOps

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 00:00:00 EDT

While I am all for traditions like Thanksgiving turkey and Sunday afternoon football, holding onto traditions in your professional life can be career limiting. The awesome thing about careers in technology is that you constantly have to be on your front foot. Because when you’re not, someone, somewhere, will be and when you meet them, they’ll win. One tradition that has a limited lifespan at this moment is waterfall-native development and the security practices that go along with them. While the beginning of the end might have first been witnessed when Gene Kim and Josh Corman presented Security is Dead at RSA in 2012, we have more quantifiable evidence from the 2017 DevSecOps Community Survey. When asked about the maturity of DevOps practices in their organizations, 40% stated that maturity was improving, while 25% said that it was very mature across the organization or in specific pockets.

What Is Regression Testing? | @DevOpsSummit @Stackify #SDLC #AI #DevOps

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 21:30:00 EDT

We talked a bit about the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) in a recent post, but today, we're going to dig a little deeper into one specific and crucial element in the testing phase, particularly for Agile development: regression testing. Regression testing refers to the process of testing a changed or updated computer program to make sure the older software features - which were previously developed and tested - still performs exactly as they did before. One way to think about software regression is to think about somebody who implements a new air conditioning system in their home only to find that while their new air conditioning system works as expected, the lights no longer work.

Cloud and Virtualization | @CloudExpo @SHD_9 #PaaS #SaaS #AI #SDN #SDS

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 17:45:00 EDT

As today’s businesses increasingly turn to the cloud to run their operations, seasoned enterprise technology professionals may recognize a familiar pattern. Years ago, virtualization emerged as a transformational technology with a similar pattern of business drivers; initially the promise of significant cost savings justified deployments. Just as virtualization evolved from a tactical cost-saving technology into a corporate strategy enabling enterprises to be responsive to changing business demands, cloud computing is following a similar path.

TechTarget: Cloud Storage Security at @CloudExpo NY | #SDN #DataCenter

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 08:45:00 EDT

As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits. Some companies will always have security concerns about storing data in the cloud and certain high-transaction applications will always be better suited for on-premises storage. Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.

Web Performance 101 | @CloudExpo @Catchpoint #DevOps #WebPerf #Monitoring

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 07:30:00 EDT

Websites are no longer just simple HTML pages with static content—they’ve evolved into a dynamic interface with features and content that are updated regularly. Website administrators use different techniques to ensure the user is viewing the latest version of the page or content. When new features are being added to the site, or a webpage resource has been moved to a new location, you don’t want the users to have access these pages. Preventing access can be done with the use of webpage redirects. Incoming HTTP requests can be redirected to another location on the site so the user experience is seamless.

Top Continuous Integration Tools | @DevOpsSummit @Stackify #DevOps #CD

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 02:00:00 EDT

Poorly managed development projects are bound to crash eventually. It's likely happened to you a dozen of times already. While writing code can be a lot of fun, managing code and dependencies can quickly become a maze of its own when you're dealing with the continuous growth of your codebase and feature branches. At Stackify, we aim to make the lives of developers easier (and less frazzling). One way to de-stress your work is with the aid of continuous integration tools.

Is NoOps the End of DevOps? | @DevOpsSummit #NoOps #DevOps #SDN #AI

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 15:15:00 EDT

Automation, a key pillar of the DevOps movement, frees IT operations to focus on higher-levl work and collaborate with cross-functional teams. But what if your automation is so good that developers don’t need you anymore? Mike Gualtieri of Forrester Research coined the term NoOps in his controversial blog post “I don’t want DevOps. I want NoOps.” In the post, Gualtieri says, “NoOps means that application developers will never have to speak with an operations professional again.”

Understanding #Serverless at @CloudExpo | #DevOps #NoCode #LowCode #AI

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 01:45:00 EDT

Serverless is considered the successor to containers. And while it’s heavily promoted as the next great thing, it’s not the best fit for every use case. Understanding the pitfalls and disadvantages of serverless will make it much easier to identify use cases that are a good fit. This post offers some technology perspectives on the maturity of serverless today. First, note how we use the word serverless here. Serverless is a combination of “Function as a Service” (FaaS) and “Platform as a Service” (PaaS). Namely, those categories of cloud services where you don’t know what the servers look like. For example, RDS or Beanstalk are “servers managed by AWS,” where you still see the context of server(s). DynamoDB and S3 are just some kind of NoSQL and storage solution with an API, where you do not see the servers. Not seeing the servers means there’s no provisioning, hardening or maintenance involved, hence they are server “less.” A serverless platform works with “events.” Examples of events are the action behind a button on a website, backend processing of a mobile app, or the moment a picture is being uploaded to the cloud and the storage service triggers the function.

Four Best Practices for Agile API Load Testing | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Agile

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 17:00:00 EDT

One important organizational point of Agile API delivery is the concept of a team producing a usable version - which should result in the improved alignment of development, QA, and technical operations teams. Perhaps an even larger benefit of Agile is that it allows teams to effectively manage change in both external and software functionality, while simultaneously accelerating the development of quality software. Part of the challenge with managing this change, however, is providing quick feedback on when the change in software happens, and its resulting impact.

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 07:45:00 EST

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time.

Everything Azure | @CloudExpo @HanuSoftware #IoT #DigitalTransformation

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 07:00:00 EDT

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating to the cloud is a simple affair – just call up a cloud provider and your wishes come true. The reality is quite different, however, as enterprises struggle with a wide variety of migration issues, from security to overtaxed IT teams and everything in-between.

2016 the Year of Granularity | @CloudExpo #Cloud #IoT #ML #BigData

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 04:00:00 EST

A recent business conversation led to the establishment of the fact that the datacenter business is becoming much more cutthroat than ever. Price wars, advanced offerings, upsells and what not are the usual tactics that have been used, but now competing forces are pressuring data center providers to go beyond the usual and utilize something new. Data center businesses are now relying more and more on leveraging strategic footprints, global presence and larger capabilities to educate and work with customers at a local level. In the United States alone, there are an estimated 3 million data centers. With data center services more abundant than grocery stores, how will the model sustain itself and what will determine the winners from the losers? My answer to that news is granularity.

Backseat Drivers, Your Wish Has Come True By @PSilvas | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 09:15:00 EST

When I was in college, I would drive the 1040 miles from Marquette Univ. in Milwaukee to my parent’s house in Rhode Island for things like summer vacation and semester break. It seemed to take forever, especially through Pennsylvania where the state speed limit at the time was 55mph. I always tried to complete it straight through yet would inevitably start the head drop and would fall asleep at some rest stop in Connecticut, about 3 hours from my goal. This is back when they still had toll booths on the Connecticut turnpike.

Internet of Things and Big Data Coverage at CES 2015 By @JnanDash | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 05:30:00 EST

I saw more discussion on big data at CES 2015 this week, compared to previous years. Everyone talked about data as the central core of everything. The IoT (Internet of Things), NFC (near Field Communication) and M2M (Machine to Machine) communication are enabling pieces for many industries - security monitoring, asset and inventory tracking, healthcare, process control, building environment monitoring, vehicle tracking and telemetry, in-store customer engagement and digital signage. Big data is the big deal here. The Big Data ecosystem includes - cloud computing, M2M/IoT, dumb terminal 2.0 (devices getting dumber - more cloud, better broadband, less about storage and more about broadband access and high quality display), and analysis. The big data business is slated to be a $200B business in 2015. Every company must insert the big data ecosystem into their future roadmap or get left out. The key here is not the technology, but its business value.

Insider Security Threats By @Vormetric | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 22:00:00 EST

Simply by having access, privileged users may unwittingly put data at risk – or be used by an outside actor as a conduit for siphoning data. Unsurprisingly, privileged accounts are very attractive targets for attackers seeking to leverage access privileges for their own nefarious purposes. Therefore, it’s completely accurate to say that all privileged users – regardless of whether or not they have bad intentions – can be considered an “insider threat.”

Devil's in the Details for NAS Storage Says @iXsystems | @CloudExpo

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 14:45:00 EDT

The devil made him do it. Or maybe it's that the devil is in the details for Matt Olander, Chief Science Officer of iXsystems and a long-time contributor to FreeBSD. A red devil icon plays a prominent role in this NAS storage company's branding and image, which is open souce “in everything we do,” according to the company. The company now has decades of experience “producing rock-solid solutions on an open source foundation. With more than1,000 clients, we have a proven history of building and delivering the right solution every time - for open source and beyond,” the company says. We thought we'd find out what Matt has to say about open source and the state of NAS storage today: Cloud Computing Journal: What advantages does NAS storage bring as cloud computing continues to grow? Matt Olander: Network Attached Storage (NAS) allows new or existing cloud-computing platforms to easily extend storage capacity as service offerings grow. Since FreeNAS & TrueNAS offer both block & file access, no matter what architecture a deployment is using, our NAS solution can easily integrate into the chosen environment. CCJ: What advantages have you seen Open Source provide for your customers? Matt: There are many advantages offered by leveraging Open Source. Using Open Source alleviates one of the main problems with current storage solutions, which is vendor lock-in. By deploying something that is based on an Open Source solution, a client is free to explore other options and can rest assured knowing that they have other options at all times during the lifecycle of their investment. Using Open Source can reduce costs by eliminating or reducing the proprietary licensing fees of a commercial, closed-source solution. An Open Source solution also typically means that there are more people looking at the source-code. This means that the Open Source alternative can be more secure as well as higher quality, since more people are using, trying, and reviewing the software. CCJ: What sort of trends do you see as cloud, Big Data, and the IoT grow? For example, the growth of solid-state storage. Matt: According to Science Daily last year, 90% of the world's data has been generated over the last 2 years. This is not slowing down and in fact, as more people and devices access the Internet, the need for storing and analyzing that data is growing. We are moving into a time where devices at home will communicate with devices at work and even devices on the consumers body, in the form of wearable technology. All of these devices will benefit from a centralized location to share and store data. Storage will get faster and cheaper while the need for that storage will continue to grow.

'Internet of Things' Moves into the Commercial Mainstream | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 14:00:00 EDT

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, more manufacturers will embed sensors in their products and connect them to the Internet to monitor their performance and offer pro-active maintenance services. As a result, engineers who know how to incorporate software and networking into their mechanical designs will become more in demand.

To Heck with 'Big Data,' 'Little Data' Is the Problem Most Face | @BigDataExpo

Sat, 04 Oct 2014 10:30:00 EDT

"Big data" gets all the press - but for the vast majority of people who work with data, it's the proliferation of "little data" that impacts us the most. What do I mean by little data? I'm referring to the proliferation of various SaaS and Cloud-based applications, on-premises applications, databases, spreadsheets, log files, data files and so forth. Many organizations are plagued with multiple instances of the same applications or multiple applications from different vendors that do essentially the same thing. These are the applications and data that run today's enterprise - and they're a mess.

Five Key Issues for the DNS of Things | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 19:00:00 EDT

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets.

Getting Onboard with the 'Internet of Things' (#IoT) | @ThingsExpo

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 23:00:00 EDT

The Open Group and BriefingsDirect recently assembled a distinguished panel at The Open Group Boston Conference 2014 to explore the practical implications and limits of the Internet of Things. This so-called Internet of Things means more data, more cloud connectivity and management, and an additional tier of “things” that are going to be part of the mobile edge -- and extending that mobile edge ever deeper into even our own bodies. Yet the Internet of Things is more than the “things” – it means a higher order of software platforms. For example, if we are going to operate data centers with new dexterity thanks to software-defined networking (SDN) and storage (SDS) -- indeed the entire data center being software-defined (SDDC) -- then why not a software-defined automobile, or factory floor, or hospital operating room -- or even a software-defined city block or neighborhood?
