[whitepaper] New Vistas Of Revenue | @CloudExpo @CalsoftInc #DataCenter

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 04:30:00 EDT

Cloud based infrastructure deployment is becoming more and more appealing to customers, from Fortune 500 companies to SMEs due to its pay-as-you-go model. Enterprise storage vendors are able to reach out to these customers by integrating in cloud based deployments; this needs adaptability and interoperability of the products confirming to cloud standards such as OpenStack, CloudStack, or Azure. As compared to off the shelf commodity storage, enterprise storages by its reliability, high-availability, efficient and greener solutions can offer much reduced operational expenses (OPEX) to the cloud service providers. Further considering the reduced OPEX, voluminous deployment in cloud environment, lesser form factors (i.e. reduced real estate investment) and intrinsic design solutions, capital expenses (CAPEX) becomes much equitable and compelling proposition. This white paper also discusses how Calsoft can resolve the technical challenges of integrating storage in the cloud with various approaches, backed by understanding of both cloud requirements and the capabilities of large class of enterprise storage products.

Gamification and IoT | @ThingsExpo #IoT #Gamification #DigitalTransformation

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 21:30:00 EDT

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid Data, discussed how wearables, analytics, and geospatial technologies can be combined to transform the world into the ultimate game board. Organizations can grasp consumer, employee, or client intrinsic interest by setting up cool, collaborative, and rewarding systems using the IoT.

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.

The Cloud Isn't Cool Anymore | @CloudExpo #IoT #DigitalTransformation

Sun, 22 May 2016 04:30:00 EDT

If the cloud was once (ever) bleeding edge, now the cloud is sheer necessity for anyone doing anything on the Internet. It has changed the way we architect applications, build IT budgets, grow userbases, even write individual lines of code. As the Internet continues to lambdify, cloud services will become more specialized; but for now, how can you take advantage of the granularity, elasticity and pre-baked-ness of modern cloud services? And, on the flip side, as your applications expand outside blade-boxes and even beyond individual data centers, how do you design applications that treat network links like second generation buses that won’t get hung up if a service a continent away just isn’t working? And what about the applications that store sensitive data on machines whose geolocation and hardware configuration is unknown?

Radical Business Transformation | @CloudExpo #Cloud #IoT #BigData

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 07:00:00 EST

Radical business transformation is an essential part of business growth, but that transformation is dependent more on process than it is technology – and on creating a culture of change within the business that has buy-in at every level. Technology vendors often tout the transformative potential of products, but when those initiatives fail to deliver? A company must take a deeper look at the reasons because it may not be the vendor or flaw in the technology, so much as the problem lies within the corporate culture. Most change management challenges include new technological tools, and most of them have familiar IT acronyms – TMS and TBM and CRM and ERP – all of which need to perform in alignment with the reasonable expectations of the corporate decision-makers who chose them for their data advantages and automated process efficiencies. That investment is often sizeable, but unless a similar commitment is made in orienting the workforce to the goals that the systems are designed to achieve, the finance team will be wondering why they’re not seeing the ROI numbers while everyone else feels the frustration.

Bare Metal and Containers | @CloudExpo #DevOps #BigData #Containers #Microservices

Thu, 08 Oct 2015 14:30:00 EDT

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears.

[session] Containerized Storage By @Nexenta | @DevOpsSummit #Containers #Docker #API #DevOps #SDN #BigData

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 09:00:00 EDT

Containers allow for compute processes to be isolated from each other and portable, but not all applications and solutions are run only in the compute layer; many require the use of some storage. Deployment of software-defined storage can be the first step in this evolution, providing portability and scalability with persistent storage. This could be in the form of storage that the containers connect to locally or in a remote or cloud location, or it could be storage residing in the containers.

[slides] Trove and DBaaS API | @CloudExpo @EnterpriseDB #API #BigData #OpenStack

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 21:00:00 EDT

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Fred Dalrymple, product manager for EnterpriseDB's Postgres Plus Cloud Database, addressed the issues encountered in using Trove to abstract a complicated cloud database, including gaining access to database functionality not native in the standard abstraction, providing portability for the database interface into non-OpenStack contexts, and preventing the database from being commoditized by abstraction.
