Data Disappointment | @CloudExpo @SFlakeSoftware #AI #BigData #Analytics

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 01/27/2017 - 22:15
It’s hard to find anyone, from cutting-edge technology services to venerable enterprises that have been in the same industry for generations, who doesn’t agree that data is critical to their success. But less discussed is the surprising, and frankly embarrassing, reality that far too often data analytics projects are failing to meet expectations.

Enterprise #DevOps Journey of @Amdocs | @DevOpsSummit #AI #Microservices

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 01/27/2017 - 21:45
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture.

Ransomware in the Age of #SaaS | @CloudExpo SDN #AI #ML #CloudSecurity

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 01/27/2017 - 14:00
Recent market analysis from Cisco demonstrates the torrid adoption of cloud-based services. By 2019, more than four-fifths of all data center traffic, 83 percent, will be based in the cloud (up from 65 percent today). Most of this action will be going to public cloud services, which will account for 56 percent of all cloud workloads. In terms of type of cloud services, a majority will be applications, as the study finds Software as a Service (SaaS) is and will continue to be the dominant mode. Currently, about 45 percent of cloud implementations are SaaS; this figure is expected to grow to 59 percent by 2019, and SaaS adoption is particularly widespread among SMBs.

Tintri to Present #DevOps June 6-8 at @CloudExpo | @Tintri #VM #SDN

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Wed, 01/25/2017 - 07:15
Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle. He will also discuss how the "Ops" side of DevOps is making their life easier and becoming invisible to developers for storage-related provisioning and application performance.

Data Infrastructure Primer | @CloudExpo #SDN #AI #Storage #DataCenter

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 01/24/2017 - 20:45
Data Infrastructures exists to support business, cloud and information technology (IT) among other applications that transform data into information or services. The fundamental role of data infrastructures is to provide a platform environment for applications and data that is resilient, flexible, scalable, agile, efficient as well as cost-effective. Put another way, data infrastructures exist to protect, preserve, process, move, secure and serve data as well as their applications for information services delivery. Technologies that make up data infrastructures include hardware, software, cloud or managed services, servers, storage, I/O and networking along with people, processes, policies along with various tools spanning legacy, software-defined virtual, containers and cloud.

Strong User Experiences | @CloudExpo @Catchpoint #DevOps #APM #WebPerf

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 01/24/2017 - 16:00
Given the increasing reliance on digital systems to accomplish many everyday tasks, there’s no denying the performance — specifically, speed, and reliability — of these systems is critical to ensuring end users will have a positive experience. At the forefront are industry giants like Google and Facebook, which are constantly pushing the limits of speed through innovative delivery techniques. While consumers welcome endeavors like Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) Project and Facebook’s Instant Articles, they also raise the bar for all internet companies. In this environment, companies that fail to meet users’ tough performance expectations will soon find themselves falling behind the competition — not just in terms of performance, but revenue as well.

Don’t Call #BigData Dead | @CloudExpo #IoT #AI #ML #MachineLearning

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 01/24/2017 - 13:00
You can call me bias, or out of touch, but over the past two years, I’ve been reading articles and blogs about how Big Data is going away, dying, or already dead. So what changed? Is Big Data falling into Gartner’s dreaded trough of disillusionment? Did someone discover that predictive analytics could have a butterfly effect and change the course of history and hence, we should abandon these voodoo analytics practices? Did we figure out that we actually don’t have enough data to call it “Big” data? Did we already finish analyzing all the data and we’re all done? Or… are the people calling it dead really just a bunch of marketers who are looking move on to the next new thought leadership topic, so they write one final blog to make one final impression just before they abandon the topic? Bingo. I’m looking at you… industry pundits, thought leaders, and analysts.

What Is Load Balancing? | @CloudExpo #IoT #M2M #API #Cloud

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 01/24/2017 - 13:00
The entire intent of load balancing is to create a system that virtualizes the “service” from the physical servers that actually run that service. A more basic definition is to balance the load across a bunch of physical servers and make those servers look like one great big server to the outside world. There are many reasons to do this, but the primary drivers can be summarized as “scalability,” “high availability,” and “predictability.”

Dev and Production | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #SDN #ContinuousDelivery

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 01/24/2017 - 12:00
We’re all aware that dev/test != production environments. While the software stacks upon which applications are deployed may be (and hopefully are) the same, there still remains a whole lot of “infrastructure” (that’s everything else) that isn’t the same. Routers, switches, security devices, load balancers, caches, and other devices dedicated to ensuring the secure delivery of applications to hungry consumer and corporate users simply don’t exist in the dev/test environment. That’s particularly true as organizations continue to view “the cloud” as its ideal dev/test environment while continuing to insist that production remain firmly rooted on-premises.
