Accelerating Transformation Projects with Dynamic, Software-Defined Storage
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization
projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy
modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional
client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with
hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network
infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has
been a laggard. Until now.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Mark Lewis, Chairman and CEO of Formation
Data Systems, detailed how to deploy dynamic, software-defined storage
infrastructure to transform storage from monolithic silos to an elastic pool
of petabyte-scale storage resource... (more)

Today, we’re welcoming our first member of staff based in Asia: James
Taylor, who is joining the Support team. James will be covering the hours
between Ardyn in the US, and our UK team, to provide round-the-clock support
to ElasticHosts customers.
James has deep experience of Linux administration, databases, programming,
and IP networking. He also has a particular interest in security and
monitoring, and hopes to add value to what we do in these areas.
James has achieved the enviable feat of a professional life run from a beach
in Thailand. When not supporting ElasticHosts customers, James can mostly be
found diving amongst schools of tropical fish, learning to read and write
Thai, or taking care of his accumulating menagerie of pets.
In particular, James is a keen free-diver (diving without scuba gear) and can
dive to 30 metres or remain underwater without breathing... (more)
The Importance of Monitoring Containers
By Kevin Goldberg
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the
growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate
on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their
DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why
containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely
easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue.
However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lose a lot of
visibility into these containers resulting in operational blind spots and
even more haystacks to find the presumptive performance issue needle.
If your team is looking towards containers and microservices as an
operational change in how you decide to ship your product, you can’t afford
bugs or software issue... (more)

I attended the MongoDB World in NY city earlier this week on June 24th. and
25th. There were 2000 attendees for this first-time event. I met many people
who flew in from all over the world. It was quite a phenomenon for a six-year
old company. The momentum of MongoDB is truly amazing.
For those who do not know MongoDB, it’s a new generation open source NoSQL
database for building highly interactive modern applications. Enterprises
have built “systems of record” over last 3 decades using traditional
RDBMS such as DB2, Oracle, MySQL and SQL Server. These systems are like the
interstate highways built during the 1930s across the USA. They serve the
business in handling basic functions, but are inadequate in meeting several
new needs. Hence the need for building “systems of engagement” has
arrived. These systems connect customers, employees, and partners into the
Expanding deployments of Postgres among global enterprises and ISVs helped
drive record subscription sales growth
London, UK - February 18, 2014 - EnterpriseDB (EDB), the leading worldwide
provider of enterprise-class Postgres products and Oracle database
compatibility solutions, today announced a record 70 percent increase in
software subscription revenue in 2013. The year capped 16 consecutive
quarters of growth in subscription revenue as global enterprises continued to
expand their deployments of Postgres to contain or reduce spending on more
costly, traditional database vendors.
Deepening relationships with existing users, growth in new subscriptions,
expanded relationships with independent software vendors and partners, and
revenue growth in the cloud all played a role in EDB's record year. EDB added
more than 400 customers in 2013 and the ranks now exceed 2,40... (more)
Python: Beyond Just Web Apps
By Omed Habib
Python has long been a go-to language for developers creating cutting-edge
web applications. However, Python’s advantages of power, versatility,
flexibility and ease of programming have made it a favorite language in a
multitude of applications, industries, and niches.
Examples of Python being used outside the world of Web apps include:
The development of an ERP/CRM named ERP5, developed by Nexedi for use in
government agencies, the apparel industry, and other warehouse-based
A self-contained marine navigation light from Carmanah Technologies. This is
a good example of how Python is helping to power the move away from dedicated
computers to the new era of the Internet of Things.
Substantial portions of the semiconductor facility at the Phillips
manufacturing plant in Fishkill, New York are run on Python.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.
You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
