"Global 2000 companies are telling us they are moving away from the legacy real estate-based data center model to next generation, Data Center 2.0 strategies; just-in-time, productized, scalable and software-optimized data center solutions," said George D. Slessman, CEO of i/o. "Having a large enterprise customer go from inception to production in just 90 days after opening i/o NEW JERSEY clearly demonstrates that our i/o ANYWHERE solution can rapidly provide the digital energy required for enterprise-class, always-on information technology infrastructure."

Combining i/o's operational expertise with its purposefully designed and engineered hardware and software architecture, i/o delivers the world's most efficient and scalable data center solutions. The i/o ANYWHERE modular platform is managed and optimized by the first data center operating system, i/o OS®, which seamlessly integrates the data center into an enterprise IT appliance to maximize resiliency, efficiency and utilization.

i/o ANYWHERE technology provides customers ultimate flexibility to scale their data centers through a choice of delivery models: customers can acquire immediate capacity through i/o's Data Center as a Service (DCaaS(TM)) delivered in a range of colocation cabinets, shared and dedicated modules, and multi-megawatt, customer-dedicated data centers or deployed as a product, which enables customers to own and operate modular data center solutions. Thus, i/o has completely disintermediated the data center infrastructure from the physical real estate, allowing customers to acquire digital energy without compromising location.

"The era of monolithic data centers is over. Modular data center solutions are the future - and happening today," said Michelle Bailey, Research Vice President of IDC. "Adopting a modular platform means companies can deploy a data center when they need it - not months or years later - with a pay-as-you-grow path to guide future expansion."

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
