Great Network Management By @MJannery | @CloudExpo [#SDN #Cloud]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 02/20/2015 - 16:15
On the surface, many network management products seem the same. But any network management system claiming to be a solution will, at a minimum, maintain an inventory of the network devices, understand their interconnectivity, monitor (and alert on) each device’s response (availability), monitor each device’s performance to some degree, and may note configuration changes.

Power Panel By @Ashar_Baig of @GigaomResearch | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 02/20/2015 - 16:00
The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of Technology at Appcore; Ermanno Bonifazi, CEO & Founder of Solgenia; Paul Turner, CMO of Cloudian; Dave Peters, Manager of Systems Integration at Esri; Derek Tumulak, Vice President of Product Management at Vormetric; Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, discussed how enterprises should develop their processes for choosing the cloud option that truly fits what they need.

Moving to the Cloud By @EFeatherston | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 02/19/2015 - 14:45
You can’t have a conversation about technology today without the topic of security breaches ending up front and center as a key concern. This is understandable with all the high profile breaches that have been occurring on what seems a regularly scheduled event. Anthem, the nation’s second largest health insurer is the latest in a long line of high profile breaches that have occurred recently. Given the size and severity of these breaches, security is very visible on everybody’s radar. This is especially true when discussing migration to the cloud. Unfortunately every breach can result in slowdowns or impediments to cloud migration plans.
