[session] #IIoT Network and #EdgeComputing | @ThingsExpo @Midokura #IoT

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

[slides] Fast with #Microservices | @DevOpsSummit @Wercker #AI #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 02/24/2017 - 07:45
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your containers from your laptop to the cloud. How do we build software for containers? How do we ship containers? How do we do all of it without shooting ourselves in the foot?

[slides] #Hadoop for Streaming Data | @CloudExpo @MapR #BigData #AI #IoT

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 02/24/2017 - 04:00
Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze real-time and historical data together.
