In networking, this means that our current normal has been forged through diligent neglect of actual user experience for decades. It’s not so much purposeful behavior by the incumbent networking players so much as placing focus elsewhere.
The week before last I bumped into Steve Croce. Steve is at Dell and is the product manager and strategist for our OpenStack private cloud offering. I got Steve to spend a few minutes with me and give me the lowdown on what we are offering and where Red Hat plays in. Take a listen.
So far we tackled the idea of large compute cluster, and a large storage cluster. I mentioned that the problem with the large storage cluster is that it doesn’t handle consistency. Two concurrent requests can hit two storage nodes and make concurrent operations that aren’t synchronized between themselves.
Compared to other features, real-time search capability is undoubtedly one of the most important features in Elasticsearch. Today we’ll look closely how is provided real-time search by Elasticsearch.
The next interview in my series from Dell World features Julio Tapia of Red Hat. Julio is a global director for Red Hat’s platform as a service, OpenShift. I got Julio to give me a quick overview of OpenShift, where Dell plays and what they are planning going forward.
Most people have heard the term SaaS and know what it means. Fewer people have heard IaaS and know what that means. Watch, and hopefully by the end, you'll have a better understanding of PaaS too.
Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Cloud Zone (November 14 - November 21). This week's topics include 5 evolving Docker technologies, the upcoming hack.summit() conference, an argument for hybrid clouds, and more.
Software-defined Storage (SDS) is being spoken about everywhere these days and various definitions of SDS are floating! This write-up is an attempt to represent SDS in simple language!
A modern browser is all you need to develop and share complex developer environments. Build environments that fit your project requirements. Instantly share your environments. Code, build, test and run projects in your browser.
Docker has been Stackato's container implementation for a year now, responsible for provisioning and managing the life-cycle of who knows how many Linux containers. The next question is how do we start exposing Docker features to end users, rather than having them as an unexposed implementation detail.
Networking technology is moving at a fast pace after being relatively stagnant for many years. And it’s not even the fundamentals of how we move packets around that is changing. We have finally realized that the network provides a set of services to applications.
IBM intends to make available IBM Verse first as a beta in Q4 2014. This beta will support customers who meet certain criteria. IBM intends general service availability on the IBM Cloud in Q1, 2015, and on premises general availability late 2015.
I would like to share with you the results and conclusions from our last Solr Cloud 4.8.1 performance tests at NICE.
I’m using 100/99 node cluster as the example, but the discussion also apply for smaller clusters (dozens of nodes) and bigger clusters (hundreds or thousands). Pretty much the only reason that you want to go with clusters of that size is that you want to scale out your processing in some manner.
When it comes to SaaS maturity model, maturity is not an all-or-nothing proposition, as a SaaS application can possess one or two important attributes and still manage to fit the typical definition and meet the essential business requirements.
There's a lot of interest in using Stackato in conjunction with continuous integration tools, and the most popular of those tools is Jenkins CI. Until now, the only ways to deploy your applications to Cloud Foundry or Stackato from a Jenkins build are included in this article.
I just wanted to let everyone know about this great virtual developer conferencing coming up called hack.summit(), which takes place Dec 2-4; there's already more than 13,000 developers signed up for the conference.
Recently Azure team announced the availability of SDK 2.5. One of the major change that was done in this release is related to diagnostics. In this post we will talk about diagnostics changes in the latest SDK. First let’s talk about the new stuff you get in the latest version of diagnostics.
Brian talks with Steven Willmott (@njyx; Founder/CEO of 3Scale) with the APItools Middleware Contest and how competitive events drive innovation and make APIs better.
The first of these is with Red Hat Sr. Solution Architect, Ian Pilcher who was on the expo floor. Ian was talking to attendees about how Red Hat and Dell are working together in the cloud space. I got him to give a short overview.
This write-up begins with an introduction to networking topologies. It then goes on to describe the major ones and their sub-domains. It explains the arena in which each of them functions in and what their applications exactly are.
Businesses rely on flexibility, cost advantage, and time-to-market for new innovations. For companies that rely on IT to drive new products and innovations, the computing infrastructure looks a lot like their software development infrastructure in terms of either creating barriers or opening up opportunities.
This post is only the tip of the iceberg for the number of technologies in this ecosystem. New solutions are being announced almost every week and with each iteration existing technologies are bending and adapting according to the new landscape. The Docker ecosystem itself is evolving and evolving rapidly.
Why are developers gung-ho about the cloud and why is it imperative that they maximize its potential? Take a look!
This article aims to showcase how easy is to develop a java web application on a cloud platform as a service (PaaS) like IBM Bluemix. Technologies involved are Java 1.6 or higher, Servlets, JSP, SQL DB database service available on Bluemix, Liberty for Java runtime, GIT and any IDE desired for implementation (eclipse is being recommended by Bluemix documentation, but I used NetBeans).
