Accelerating Transformation Projects with Dynamic, Software-Defined Storage Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Mark Lewis, Chairman and CEO of Formation Data Systems, will detail how to deploy dynamic, software-defined storage infrastructure to transform storage from monolithic silos to an elastic pool of petabyte-scale storage resources that deliver the agility and economics of public cloud with the security and contr...

Composable Infrastructure | @CloudExpo @HTBase #SDN #DevOps #DataCenter #DigitalTransformation

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Why Composable Infrastructure Instead of HyperConvergence? HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it. This meant that up to now the HyperConverged vendors were in charge of the requirements.

Microservices at @CloudExpo | @IBMcloud @CloudTroll #AI #SDN #CloudNative #DevOps #Microservices

Microservices: Choosing the Right Cloud, Services and Tools We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps - failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you're decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it's not a question of using microservices - not doing so will be a path to eventual business failure. In his general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Andrew Hately, an IBM Distinguished Engineer, discussed how the real and more difficult question, in developing microservices-based applications, is this: what's the best combination of cloud services and tools to use to get the right results in the specif...

A Brief History of #Serverless Evolution | @DevOpsSummit #CloudNative #DevOps #Microservices

The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments. The emergence of microservice was to break the monolithic applications into smaller services, with each one of them having their own business logic. With a monolithic architecture, a single faulty service can bring down the entire app server and all t... (more)

Moving Forward with #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit @Nutanix @rtpChris #Nutanix #CloudNative #AI #Serverless

Moving Forward Without Looking Back One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, explored how Nutanix is bringing these sides together - agility for pets, governance for cattle - in a single unified platform. With this combined approach, Nutanix removes silos - both technological and human - propelling your applications to a new level. Speaker Bio Chris Brown has 6 years of IT experience, with the...
