Five Tips to Convert Cloud Skeptics By @KiraMakagon | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 02/02/2015 - 20:00
There’s no denying we’re in the midst of a cloud craze – but, behind all the hype, is cloud adoption really imperative? How much of the cloud buzz is fabrications of possible benefits, and how much of it is reality? To decipher what’s true and what’s false, I’ve put together a list of five reasons why cloud adoption is important, based on the facts. Freedom from responsibility and costs. Yes, when you move services to a cloud provider, you immediately relinquish some control. However, you instantly free yourself from the cost of hardware and server management, and gain back the time (or manpower) that it would ordinarily take to run IT systems.

DevOps Is Even More Important Than You Think | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 02/02/2015 - 17:00
The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps becomes essential for any ambitious enterprise today.

‘Network Security’ By @McAfee | @CloudExpo [#Cloud #IoT]

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 02/02/2015 - 15:00
What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's high time we start thinking the way these thieves think. If we don't, malware, rootkits, AETs and other nefarious threats will continue to undermine our sense of security.

Cloud-Centric Development By @IsomorphicHQ | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 02/02/2015 - 09:15
Between the compelling mockups and specs produced by your analysts and designers, and the resulting application built by your developers, there is a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral out of control, and applications fall short of requirements. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, will present a new approach where business and development users collaborate – each using tools appropriate to their goals and expertise – to build mockups and enhance them all the way through functional prototypes, to final working applications. Learn how this approach helps you improve usability, exceed end-user expectations, and still hit project milestones.

IoT and Agile Big Data By @CoryIsaacson | @CloudExpo [#BigData #IoT]

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 02/02/2015 - 09:00
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver data in a meaningful way, one that really delivers on what end-users need to maintain a competitive position in fast-changing markets. What is needed is an agile approach to Big Data, one that affords architects and developers the freedom to rapidly support a wide variety of changing business requirements and needs - without a full "reset" of the Big Data infrastructure and toolset.

Internet of Things and Social Wearables By @JCSMedia | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 02/01/2015 - 19:00
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss how the ability to wirelessly capture and analyze this kind of distributed wearable changes the game for marketers or anyone who wants to understand large scale gross emotional arousal response.

The Benefits of Hybrid Cloud By @Rackspace | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 02/01/2015 - 19:00
Today, IT is not just a cost center. IT is an enabler and driver of business. With the emergence of the hybrid cloud paradigm, IT now has increasingly more capabilities to create new strategic opportunities for a business. Hybrid cloud allows an organization to utilize multi-tenant public clouds, dedicated private clouds, bare metal hosting, and the associated support and services for the right use cases through an on-demand, XaaS model. This model of IT creates tremendous opportunities for businesses to utilize cloud in the most customized way possible to suit its requirements and business goals, and also to enable new business opportunities in a way that was not possible a few years ago. This hybrid cloud computing model brings many more advantages than just cost savings. While a TCO analysis immediately shows the benefit of the hybrid cloud model, it does not fully capture the tremendous value that hybrid cloud brings to a business. The hybrid cloud model can enable and drive strategic opportunities for a business that will have far more impact than just cost savings.

The New Virtualization By @Docker | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 02/01/2015 - 14:15
Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their smaller footprint, shorter boot times, and higher consolidation factors, they also bring a lot of new features and use cases that were not possible with classical virtual machines.

The ‘Post-Password Era’ with @IdentivIoT | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 01/31/2015 - 19:30
Exploiting weak identity credentials is one of the most common elements of most attacks. Even attacks that seem unrelated to users, such as recent point of sale (POS) attacks at well-known retailers like the ones you have mentioned, can be traced to insecure passwords. Often, the same password is repeated for all organizations managed by the POS vendor, and once it is stolen, it essentially becomes a default password and the attackers can gain knowledge of the customer base.
