Unlike Ashley Madison, How to Avoid Baring It All By @IanKhanLive | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 07/23/2015 - 23:30
Today’s case of Ashley Madison getting hacked and literally being kept at ransom is a classic case of something not very new, but something we need to take a look at with a fresh set of eyes. It’s not all the trouble all their customers will get into that I’m talking about, but the mere corporate nightmare of having your entire customer data leaked. Today it’s one organization, who know is who is next tomorrow. Want to know how to avoid getting caught with your pants down? Read on.

[slides] Workloads and Public Cloud at @CloudExpo By @utollwi | @ProfitBricksUSA #DevOps #Containers #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 07/23/2015 - 21:00
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adoption as teams delay their cloud migrations or seek alternatives like the public cloud or await SaaS alternatives for their essential apps. Today's mass market for cloud computing IaaS is made up of non-cloud natives and the industry needs to respond to grow. In his talk, William Toll will break down the reasons for the delays and how existing IT teams can accelerate their plans to migrate to the public cloud - without expensive consultants or big cloud migration projects.

How to Smooth the Software Delivery Process By @RobinBloor | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 07/23/2015 - 13:00
The path of an application from software development to bullet-proof operational deployment has rarely been a smooth one. This is true whether we're talking new applications or maintenance releases of established applications. There's no deep mystery to why this is. The fact is that the software development environment has always been a "moving target."

Are Microservices ‘SOA Done Right’? By @TheEbizWizard | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 07/23/2015 - 13:00
What we really mean to ask is whether microservices architecture is SOA done right. But then, of course, we’d have to figure out what microservices architecture was. And if you think defining SOA is difficult, pinning down microservices architecture is unquestionably frying pan into fire time. Given my years at ZapThink, fighting to help architects understand what Service-Oriented Architecture really was and how to get it right, it’s no surprise that many people ask me this question.

[slides] What, Why & How of IaaS & PaaS By @YungChou | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 07/23/2015 - 12:30
The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transition into and take advantages of these emerging service models.

Secure DevOps Automation for AWS From @PalerraInc | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Containers #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 07/23/2015 - 03:15
Palerra, the cloud security automation company, announced enhanced support for Amazon AWS, allowing IT security and DevOps teams to automate activity and configuration monitoring, anomaly detection, and orchestrated remediation, thereby meeting compliance mandates within complex infrastructure deployments. "Monitoring and threat detection for AWS is a non-trivial task. While Amazon's flexible environment facilitates successful DevOps implementations, it adds another layer, which can become a target for potential threats. What's more, securing infrastructure and meeting compliance mandates is not all up to Amazon and should be a shared responsibility with the organization using it," said Rohit Gupta, co-founder and CEO of Palerra. "We have supported AWS since day one and are thrilled to announce we are expanding our support to provide holistic visibility across complex AWS deployments consisting of diverse infrastructure resources globally."

Migrating to Cloud-Based Managed Services? By @OrlandoBayter | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 07/21/2015 - 20:30
In 2013, Scandinavian research group SINTEF announced that 90 percent of all data ever created was generated during the two previous years. That time frame continues shrink as the rate of data creation increases exponentially. Mobile devices, computers, gaming systems and even your car all produce terabytes and terabytes of data. Under these conditions, every business needs to think seriously about their cloud options. There’s simply too much data for a company to effectively manage on outdated systems alone. We are quickly moving into the Post-PC era. While computers will remain the primary interface for employees, the data, computations, storage, and processing will occur externally in the cloud. Enterprise software from five years ago can’t handle the surge of data and solutions are quickly moving to the cloud to store, manage, compute and backup vital information at lightning-fast speeds while avoiding the heavy costs and headaches of owning and managing complex commodity hardware.

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 07/21/2015 - 18:00
With 2015 crossing the half way point, let’s take a look at some technology trends thus far. Breaches: Well, many databases are half empty due to the continued rash of intrusions while the crooks are half full with our personal information. Data breaches are on a record pace this year and according to the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), there have been 400 data incidents as of June 30, 2015. One more than this time last year. And, 117,576,693 records had been compromised. ITRC also noted a 85% increase in the number of breaches within the banking sector. From health care to government agencies to hotel chains to universities and even Major League Baseball, breaches and attacks are now a daily occurrence.
