Having just joined a large technology company with 20 years of history, it
would be suicidal to believe that I can immediately move the entire
organization to the DevOps mindset and model. For those not familiar with the
term, "Eventual Consistency" is a model used in distributed computing to
ensure high availability. In this context, it's a model for replicating best
practices and automation across IT teams and business units.
The logical place to start with automation is the on-boarding of a new
employee. That process should be as seamless and streamlined as possible,
with a p... (more)

When we talk about the impact of BYOD and BYOA and the Internet of Things, we
often focus on the impact on data center architectures. That's because there
will be an increasing need for authentication, for access control, for
security, for application delivery as the number of potential endpoints
(clients, devices, things) increases. That means scale in the data center.
What we gloss over, what we skip, is that before any of these "things" ever
makes a request to access an application it had to execute a DNS query.
Every. Single. Thing.
Maybe that's ... (more)

Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets. When an outside party owns, controls and manages your infrastructure and computational resources, how can you be assured that sensitive data remains private and secure? How do you best protect data in mixed use cloud and big data infrastructure sets? Can you still satisfy the full range of reporting, compliance and regulatory requirements?

The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful devic...
