Cloud Management Tools Still Elusive | @CloudExpo #API #AWS #Cloud

Cloud Management Tools Still Elusive By Christine Cignoli Google's Cloud team this week discussed multicloud integration with their own platform and AWS using Google Cloud Endpoints and AWS' Lambda. The Cloud Endpoints let you develop open APIs, and you can then call those APIs up from Lambda. This may be the way forward for businesses eager to get their multiple public cloud providers integrated. We're interested in the network dependency that's now been introduced as the two providers connect. We'll see what other integration or multicloud management tools come out as this trend grows. On the topic of clouds working together, the theme of this week's ONUG Spring 2017 conference was hybrid cloud. ONUG, the Open Networking User Group, concerns itself with developing and using the open technologies that can help businesses run. Group members decided on hybrid cloud b... (more)

In this article we cover the following topics: Basics about C# Exceptions, including examples Common .NET Exceptions How to Create Your Own Custom C# Exception Types How to Find Hidden .NET Exceptions C# Exception Logging Best Practices What Is an Exception? Exceptions are a type of error that occurs during the execution of an application. Errors are typically problems that are not expected. Whereas, exceptions are expected to happen within application code for various reasons. Applications use exception handling logic to explicitly handle the exceptions when they happen.  Exceptions can occur for a wide variety of reasons. From the infamous NullReferenceException to a database query timeout. The Anatomy of C# Exceptions Exceptions allow an application to transfer... (more)

[session] @JuniperNetworks to Present at @CloudExpo | @BethGage #AI #DX

From Digital Disruption to Digital Cohesion The age of Digital Disruption is evolving into the next era - Digital Cohesion, an age in which applications securely self-assemble and deliver predictive services that continuously adapt to user behavior. Information from devices, sensors and applications around us will drive services seamlessly across mobile and fixed devices/infrastructure. This evolution is happening now in software defined services and secure networking. Four key drivers - Performance, Economics, Interoperability and Trust - will shape the way users, service providers and the industry creates the foundation for the next networking era. In her session at 20th Cloud Expo, Beth Gage, Senior Director of Systems Engineering at Juniper Networks, will outline how the four key drivers are pushing development and describe what challenges must be solved to ac...

Nutanix' @DevOpsSummit Keynote | @Nutanix #APM #SDN #AI #DX #DevOps

Nutanix Enterprise Cloud for DevOps DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore the ways that Nutanix technologies empower teams to react faster than ever before and connect teams in ways that were either too complex or simply impossible with traditional infrastructures. Speaker Bio Chris Brown is a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix. He has 6 years of IT experience, with the majority of that time being spent in tec... (more)

[session] @Midokura to Present #IoT and #EdgeComputing | @ThingsExpo #AI

Journey to an Intelligent Industrial IoT Network There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Pino de Candia, CTO of Midokura, will use examples drawn from real IIoT use cases and discuss the variety of operations and maintenance tools to support proactive, policy-based flow analysis for edge computing or fog nodes. In this way, and IT and OT engineers can ensure reliable operation of the application an... (more)

[session] @Citrix to Present at @CloudExpo | @TMinahan #Agile #AI #ML #DL

Cloud Sprawl: The Rising Epidemic and What to Do About It Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack - from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they've also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Tim Minahan, Senior Vice President at Citrix, will ... (more)

‘The Pain Curve’ By @StackIQ | @CloudExpo #BigData #DevOps #Hadoop

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ, described why clusters are so different from farms of single-purpose servers that reside in traditional data centers, and why without an automated solution that can address the cluster requirements, real pain is coming and failure is certain. Speaker Bio: Greg Bruno is the Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ. Prior to jo... (more)
