[session] Big Data Thrashing and Resolution | @CloudExpo #BigData #Analytics #MachineLearning

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 05/23/2017 - 15:15
Existing Big Data solutions are mainly focused on the discovery and analysis of data. The solutions are scalable and highly available but tedious when swapping in and swapping out occurs in disarray and thrashing takes place. The resolution for thrashing through machine learning algorithms and support nomenclature is through simple techniques. Organizations that have been collecting large customer data are increasingly seeing the need to use the data for swapping in and out and thrashing occurs in both transaction processing and online analytical processing. Therefore, there is a growing need for support on thrashing using machine learning algorithms and solutions for use in "Big Data."

[session] Adopting #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit @Nutanix #AI #Microservices

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 05/20/2017 - 20:45
One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore how Nutanix is bringing these sides together - agility for pets, governance for cattle - in a single unified platform. With this combined approach, Nutanix removes silos - both technological and human - propelling your applications to a new level.

[session] The Role of #MachineLearning | @CloudExpo #ML #IoT #DX #BigData

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 05/18/2017 - 17:00
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect anomalous usage based on past usage.

Serverless Architectures Are Here | @CloudExpo #FaaS #Cloud #Serverless

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 05/18/2017 - 16:00
It has never been a better time to be a developer! Thanks to cloud computing, deploying our applications is much easier than it used to be. How we deploy our apps continues to evolve thanks to cloud hosting, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and now Function-as-a-Service. FaaS is the concept of serverless computing via serverless architectures. Software developers can leverage this to deploy an individual "function", action, or piece of business logic. They are expected to start within milliseconds and process individual requests and then the process ends.

[session] The Right #Microservices | @CloudExpo @IBMDevOps #AI #DevOps

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 13:45
We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices - not doing so will be a path to eventual business failure. The real and more difficult question, in developing microservices-based applications, is this: What's the best combination of cloud services and tools to use to get the right results in the specific business situation in which you need to deliver what your end users’ want. Considering that new streams of IoT data are already raising the stakes on what end users expect in their mobile experiences, the versatility and power of cloud services is going to become the key to innovation that’s meaningful in the market.
