IoT and Smart Buildings | @ThingsExpo #IoT #IIoT #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 05/13/2016 - 11:00
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT's direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied hotel rooms.

Hybrid Security Monitoring | @CloudExpo @AlertLogic #DataCenter #InfoSec

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 05/13/2016 - 07:30
The demand for organizations to expand their infrastructure to multiple IT environments like the cloud, on-premise, mobile, bring your own device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow. As this hybrid infrastructure increases, the challenge to monitor the security of these systems increases in volume and complexity. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty, Chief Security Evangelist at Alert Logic, will show how properly configured and managed security architecture can defend against the cyber kill chain. The audience will learn about the “10 Security Best Practices” for effective security solutions and proven strategies to prevent harmful cyber activity.

Understanding IoT | @ThingsExpo #IoT #IIoT #M2M #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 05/13/2016 - 00:45
There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the need to find a platform (solution) that is capable of quickly and easily managing all of these complex necessities.

Storage Performance | @CloudExpo #IoT #DataCenter #Storage #InfoSec

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 05/12/2016 - 21:45
Cloud Object Storage is effectively infinitely scalable and boasts the lowest total costs. But cloud SLAs and T&Cs are traditionally optimized for huge customers like Netflix, so applications demanding better confidentiality or higher availability typically can’t reap the benefits of public cloud storage. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Don Martin, CTO of Security First Corp, will provide an overview of innovative technologies available today – secret sharing and information dispersal algorithms – that enable multiple, redundant cloud storage locations to be efficiently harnessed for the most sensitive and most demanding storage applications.

Savvy Digital Visionaries See Beyond Nearby Clouds | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 05/12/2016 - 17:00
While the decisive CEOs have a digital transformation agenda, those companies executing plans to re-imagine their business models are in the minority. And yet, the early-adopters now using cloud computing are enabled to respond quickly to changing market conditions. In contrast, the laggards are undecided and risk falling further behind. This is a global phenomena, where the industry and local market leaders are able to enact their transition with limited interference or threats from more traditional competitors. Just consider the current status-quo within the United Kingdom, as an example.

NetBeans Community Approves NetBeans IDE 8.1 for Release

NetBeans Highlights - Thu, 05/12/2016 - 09:08
We are pleased to announce the results of the NetBeans IDE 8.1 Community Acceptance Survey that ended November 2nd: 85% of 89 respondents agree that NetBeans IDE 8.1 Release Candidate is stable enough to be shipped! A few respondents pointed out several serious issues. We evaluated them all not to overlook some important problem. We have noticed that majority of web programmers appreciate improved generic support for JavaScript development like enhanced Node.js support, debugging, inspection and especially testing and packaging so our investment into this area paid off. Another success worth mentioning is big (98%) satisfaction with redesigned Java Profiler. Check it out yourselves! Overall, this is a good news for the NetBeans IDE 8.1 from the community, and we thank all who provided this valuable feedback!

Sensor-2-Server Access Layer | @ThingsExpo #IoT #IIoT #M2M #API

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 05/11/2016 - 20:00
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, will discuss how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermost (access) layer of the network.

WordPress Docker Container | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 05/11/2016 - 03:15
I have an article in the recently released “DZone Guide to Building and Deploying Applications on the Cloud” entitled “Fullstack Engineering in the Age of Hybrid Cloud”. In this article I discuss the need and skills of a Fullstack Engineer with relation to troubleshooting and repairing complex, distributed hybrid cloud applications. My recent experiences with troubleshooting issues with my Docker WordPress container only reinforce the details I wrote about in this piece. Without my comprehensive understanding of both the infrastructure and application layer I don’t believe I could have achieved resolution (if I have, but more on that later).
