What Gridstore Customers Say About “Easy”
By Victoria Grey

Lately I’ve been talking with Gridstore customers to understand their experiences with our products, to know what’s working and what’s not, and if they’re happy. I’ve come across several themes that run through all the discussions, but one in particular struck me. Consistently the customers report that the installation of the systems, and later, the ongoing management, were unexpectedly easy. Each of them reported expecting many hours or days to get the systems set up and running, only to find it would actually take a fraction of that time. [continued]


Cloud Expo's giant Silicon View billboard which is viewed by more than 1.3 million motorists per week

The 15th International Cloud Expo has just expanded its conference program, to bring together Cloud Computing, APM, APIs, Security, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps and WebRTC at one location.

The show now has three tracks devoted exclusively to the IoT (with WebRTC present in one of the tracks), a full single track focusing on Big Data, and a two-track DevOps Summit, in addition to four tracks devoted exclusively to Cloud Computing in the enterprise.

Cloud Expo is the single show where delegates and technology vendors can meet to experience and discuss the entire world of the cloud.

With Cloud Computing driving a higher percentage of enterprise IT budgets every year, it becomes increasingly important to learn about the latest technology developments and solutions.

Attend Cloud Expo Nov 4-6, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA. Craft your own custom experience. Learn the latest from the world's best technologists. Find the vendors you want and put them to the test.

Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Today, we have more data to manage than ever. We also have better algorithms that help us access our data faster. Cloud is the driving force behind many of the data warehouse advancements we have enjoyed in recent years. But what are the best practices for storing data in the cloud for machine learning and data science applications?
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
