He created URIs, HTTP, HTML, and the first web browser - all critical building blocks that paved the way for the Internet to operate as the ubiquitous, decentralized network for sharing information that we take for granted today. As a result of his contributions to society, it was recently announced that Tim Berners-Lee has been awarded the prestigious Turing Award.

[session] @Nutanix' Persistent #Containers | @DevOpsSummit #SDN #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 04/20/2017 - 16:15
In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent.

Cloud Deployment: Slow and Thoughtful Wins the Race | @CloudExpo #Cloud #APM #Monitoring

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 04/20/2017 - 16:00
This recent research on cloud computing from the Register delves a little deeper than many of the "We're all adopting cloud!" surveys we've seen. They found that meaningful cloud adoption and the idea of the cloud-first enterprise are still not reality for many businesses. The Register's stats also show a more gradual cloud deployment trend over the past five years, not any sort of explosion. One important takeaway is that coherence across internal and external clouds is essential for IT right now. That translates into tasks like planning better cloud management and application and platform integrations.

Web Performance 101 | @CloudExpo @Catchpoint #DevOps #WebPerf #Monitoring

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 04/20/2017 - 15:15
Websites are no longer just simple HTML pages with static content—they’ve evolved into a dynamic interface with features and content that are updated regularly. Website administrators use different techniques to ensure the user is viewing the latest version of the page or content. When new features are being added to the site, or a webpage resource has been moved to a new location, you don’t want the users to have access these pages. Preventing access can be done with the use of webpage redirects. Incoming HTTP requests can be redirected to another location on the site so the user experience is seamless.

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 04/20/2017 - 15:00
