A New Architecture for the Internet of Things By @JKirklan | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - 4 hours 53 min ago
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your architecture and create an integrated, interoperable, reliable system of thousands of devices. He covered the transformative process taken by companies in moving from a two-tier to a three-tier topology for IoT implementations. He also discussed: The benefits of a three-tier approach The emergence of the controller tier as a pivot point for modern enterprise IoT architecture Architecting your IT environment to achieve scalability, reliability and security

Microservices and HTTP/2 By @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker #Containers #Microservices

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - 12 hours 53 min ago
There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

[slides] How Microservices Extend #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #Docker #Containers #Microservices

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - 12 hours 53 min ago
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

Keep CALM and Embrace DevOps – Sharing | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - 13 hours 23 min ago
In this final blog on the DevOps CALMS model, we end on S for Sharing. Now I have to be honest, the first time I saw the CALMS model I initially questioned whether ‘Sharing' was really needed. I mean, surely with the right ‘Culture', then this would ensure sharing anyway? Even in my blog on culture I mentioned the need to shift from organizational silos to a collaborative model - which must include sharing, right? Well yes it does, but sharing (or collaboration) is really the core value of DevOps adoption. Without sharing, you can forget about having the right culture, your employees accepting automation, embracing Lean and having measurements that work. This is how important Sharing and collaboration is to DevOps success.

Breaking Down IT Silos By @Jut_Inc | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Containers #Microservices

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - 13 hours 53 min ago
IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can only work if the underlying analytics platform is flexible and powerful enough to handle the various workflows of the organization. Come hear how we've solved this.

Migrate Data from Legacy to Cloud By @WayneLam888 | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/04/2015 - 14:45
As virtualized and cloud systems are so prevalent and integral to data storage, the need to migrate data from a legacy storage system to a virtual or cloud-based one is inevitable. But, here’s the rub: migrating data is a lot harder than you might think, despite all the marketing noise about smooth transitions, ease-of-use, and turnkey solutions. While the term ‘cloud’ means many things to many people, I believe it refers to a large-scale virtualized data center that has numerous clusters of VMware or other hypervisor host servers connected to a SAN storage farm with petabytes of data.
