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)

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)
Today nearly all of us have our information stored on the cloud. It's a very
easy solution that allows users to seamlessly create back-ups of photos,
contacts and other personal information, giving users access to their
accounts anywhere from any device. Perhaps its most prized feature is that it
has no storage limits, unlike mobile devices and PCs.
There is, however, a downside to cloud services. Although it is useful in
storing data, it could be the reason data is lost. Recently, the celebrity
iCloud hack went to trial. The hacker admitted he acquired the credentials by
spear phishing his victims and once he had them, all the data they stored on
the cloud, whether intentionally or not, was exposed and later posted online.
Many users are not aware of the different risks involved in using the cloud.
It's easy to forget that it syncs automatically, storing data that wa... (more)

How Microservices Are Transforming Python Development
By Omed Habib
The goal of any tech business worth its salt is to provide the best product
or service to its clients in the most efficient and cost-effective way
possible. This is just as true in the development of software products as it
is in other product design services.
Microservices, an app architecture style that leans mostly on independent,
self-contained programs, are quickly becoming the new norm, so to speak. With
this change comes a declining reliance on older SOAs like COBRA, a push
toward more sustainable API approaches and fewer monolithic development and
So why are microservices suddenly at the forefront of the software
architecture conversation? They are changing how Python-based developers are
getting things done in a way that’s far more efficient than before, and in
more ways... (more)
In his "A Publisher's Ethics" blog entry Blankenhorn writes "SYS-CON is one
of the most powerful computer publishing companies in the U.S. While rivals
Ziff-Davis, CMP and IDG have fallen on hard times while paying editors well
and preaching the value of ethical journalism, Kircaali has become the
industry's low cost provider. In the poverty that is 21st century computer
publishing, Kircaali's strategy has made business sense. He has delivered
large quantities of papers and low ad rates."
He is correct in identifying SYS-CON as one of the most powerful technology
media companies in the world. However, this man misses the point on SYS-CON's
success entirely and accuses the company of a lack of ethical journalism. How
can "lack of ethics" make the world's leading tech media company also the
most powerful one? SYS-CON's unmatched success lies on the principles of

Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator Helps Service Providers Commercialize the Cloud
by Opening the Platform to OpenStack and Adding Functional Feature-Rich
London, UK - 20th November 2013 - Flexiant, an international provider of
cloud orchestration software, today reveals how it is opening its platform to
support OpenStack to solve the business challenges associated with the open
source cloud management solution.
Service providers must have the functionality to commercialize their cloud
offering, but the core OpenStack project currently lacks the ability to meet
this business need. Flexiant announced its roadmap to be the orchestration
layer on top of OpenStack that will enable service providers to launch
differentiated cloud services, quickly and at scale.

When you think of Red Hat, you have to acknowledge its contribution to the
Linux interface but now there is a new kid on the block whom Red Hat wants to
befriend. That is none other than the OpenStack which is seen in their new
release of OpenStack-friendly release of the cloud Storage Server. The latest
Red Hat Storage Server (RHSS) 2.1 has succeeded in combining two well known
and well used units, namely the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.4 and
oVirt. Therefore, you get an open source platform for virtualization and an
XFS File System storage. So the user gets to deploy the open storage which
is software-defines along with the performance, manageability and
capabilities of an enterprise level software.
The new RHSS 2.1 release is packed with features which the user has been
looking out for and after a long research on market needs, Red Hat has

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
