Containers and Microservices at @CloudExpo New York By @IoT2040 [#Cloud]

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 14:15
Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 16th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York June 9-11 will find fresh new content in a new track called PaaS | Containers & Microservices Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda. With the launch of Docker's initial release in March of 2013, interest was revved up several notches. Then late last year, CoreOS shook up the community with its Rocket containers announcement. Part of Rocket's strategy is apparently to return to the notion of a container as, well, a container, in the face of Docker expanding its container strategy upward into the overall PaaS realm. Meanwhile, Red Hat has its own view of containers. Along with that, there are viewpoints that perhaps containers haven't been used well up to this point. Red Hat's Gordon Haff, for example, a regular Cloud Expo speaker, recently wrote that developers and their customers need to re-think the concept of services themselves, and how they should be deployed discretely and loosely. Rather than just stuff an OS into a container, for example, developers and deployers should consider a spectrum of microservices and what they can do. Cloud Expo is still accepting submissions for this new track, so please visit www.cloudcomputingexpo.com for the latest information. As always, Cloud Expo is staying right on top of what's going on in this fast-evolving world. We look forward to seeing you in New York.

Automated Breach Detection Sensors | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 12:00
Keeping data from getting out into the wild or being damaged by cyber attackers is what keeps CISOs, the executive team and boards of directors up at night. To protect organizations, cybersecurity needs to be automated and real-time, it needs to learn contextually like we do and it needs to monitor every corner of the network in a way that organizations can afford without sacrificing coverage.

Smart Glasses - The Internet's Portal By @KyleSamani | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 23:45
We've seen entire industries disrupted by the Internet including newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, libraries, travel agents, music, taxis, hotels, the Yellow Pages and more. All of these industries were predicated on controlling proprietary information flows. When the Internet brought the marginal cost of communication and information transfer to $0, the old business models failed and new ones emerged that took advantage of a fundamentally new way to communicate.

Positive Technology Disruption By @ABridgwater | @CloudExpo [#IoT #Cloud]

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 22:15
The list of ‘new paradigm’ technologies that now surrounds us appears to be at an all time high. From cloud computing and Big Data analytics to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT), today we have to deal with what the industry likes to call ‘paradigm shifts’ at every level of IT. This is disruption; of course, we understand that – change is almost always disruptive.

Keep CALM And Embrace DevOps – Automation | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 17:00
For me the mantra of achieving speed via automation tools is nothing new. In fact I was ‘automating’ Citrix Metaframe builds using windows scripting techniques back in 2004. The market though, has become awash with different automation products and it’s fair to say that many enterprises now suffer from ‘automation sprawl’. This results in a tactical rather than the strategic approach to automation required, meaning that benefits are never fully realized. In fact, I have spoken to many companies for which the word ‘automation’ leaves a bitter taste in the mouth as they have been burned by failed implementations.

Internet of Things Microservices | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 14:00
An explosive combination of technology trends will be where ‘microservices’ and the IoT Internet of Things intersect, a concept we can describe by comparing it with a previous theme, the ‘X Internet.' The idea of using small self-contained application components has been popular since XML Web services began and a distributed computing future of smart fridges and kettles was imagined long back in the early Internet years.

Integrate Network Services By @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 20:45
Polymorphism is a concept central to object-oriented programming. The notion of polymorphism is used to extend the capabilities of a basic object, like a mammal, to specific implementations, like cats or dogs or honey badgers, even though they don't care about such technical distinctions. A good example of this is cats and dogs, which are both of the type "mammal" but that "speak" in a different voice.

Microservices on Docker By @Rancher_Labs at @DevOpsSummit New York [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 21:15
Docker is an excellent platform for organizations interested in running microservices. It offers portability and consistency between development and production environments, quick provisioning times, and a simple way to isolate services. In his session at DevOps Summit at 16th Cloud Expo, Shannon Williams, co-founder of Rancher Labs, will walk through these and other benefits of using Docker to run microservices, and provide an overview of RancherOS, a minimalist distribution of Linux designed expressly to run Docker. He will also discuss Rancher, an orchestration and service discovery platform designed for running Docker at scale in production on any cloud and computing infrastructure.

Use a Liberty JAAS login module for Bluemix single sign-on

This tutorial provides a technique for Liberty-aware authentication with the Bluemix SSO service. Create a sample app that uses the Bluemix SSO service for user login; the Liberty server creates all necessary objects (Subject, Principal, Session) upon successful authentication. A Liberty app can obtain Bluemix SSO capabilities using JAAS authentication with the SSO service so that your authentication mechanism is abstracted from application code.
