The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery.

Internet of Things Success By @GreenwaveSys | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 10/28/2014 - 16:30
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, will examine three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is essential to maintaining competitive advantage. Third is the emergence of application-specific software providers whose solutions can unlock IoT's full potential across all embedded devices.

DevOps & Cloud's Predictable Provisioning Problem | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 10/27/2014 - 10:00
Go ahead. Name a cloud environment that doesn't include load balancing as the key enabler of elastic scalability. I've got coffee... so it's good, take your time... Exactly. Load balancing - whether implemented as traditional high availability pairs or clustering - provides the means by which applications (and infrastructure, in many cases) scale horizontally. It is load balancing that is at the heart of elastic scalability models, and that provides a means to ensure availability and even improve performance of applications. But simple load balancing alone isn't enough. Too many environments and architectures are wont to toss a simple, network-based solution at the problem and call it a day. But rudimentary load balancing techniques that rely solely on a set of metrics are doomed to fail eventually. That's because a simple number like "connection count" does not provide enough context to make an intelligent load balancing decision. An application instance may currently have only 100 connections while another has 500, but if the capacity of the former is only 200 while the capacity of the other is 5000, a decision based on "least connections" is not the right one.

DevOps: Stop Talking and Start Doing | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 21:30
Can we shift the conversation from talking about DevOps to sharing lessons learned about trying to implement DevOps? Over the past several months, I have had numerous conversations with a variety of Fortune 500 companies about how to embrace DevOps. Most enterprises understand why DevOps is important but struggle to figure out how to get started and how to make progress. In fact, some of the large enterprises that are touted as the poster children for DevOps are really only in the early phases of adoption and have a lot of room for improvement. The important thing is that they stopped talking about DevOps and started doing something about it.
