Building Private Clouds

While the hype rages around cloud computing, most cloud implementations go the way of the private cloud and avoid the public clouds for now.  Private clouds are exactly what they sound like.  Your own instance of SaaS, PaaS, or IaaS that exists in your own data center, all tucked away, protected and cozy.  You own the hardware, you can hug your server. However, what defines a private cloud these days could also mean systems that are remotely hosted but dedicated to a single enterprise, and, in some cases, provided out of a public cloud data center as a virtual private cloud.  Thus any cloud infrastructure that's dedicated to a single organization is getting the "private cloud" label.  This includes the emerging relabeling of existing enterprise software and hardware solutions, looking to deliver cloud-in-a-box private clouds. If this sounds confusing, it is.  The te... (more)

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)

Cloud Supercomputing: Navigating The "Big Data" Space

Databases, Data Warehouses, Map Reduce, Hadoop, Realtime Data Warehouses,... What is the right technology for your "big data" analytics challenges? The best fit will depend on your specific requirements on three fronts: Speed (How long can you afford to wait for the results of your big data processing? Is latency of several hours acceptable, or do you need analytics insight at the speed of your business transactions and events, i.e. in seconds?) Scale (How much data are you gathering? How much do you need to process per second, per minute,  or per hour?) Power (How complex do your analytics algorithms need to be? Do you need only simple summaries and statistics, or do you need powerful algorithms that can carry out deep analytics? Is simple batch processing enough, or do you need the power of continuous, always-on analytics?) Cloud supercomputing is all about big dat... (more)

Cloud or Not to Cloud That Is The Question

The IT world is locked in an ongoing debate over the usefulness of Cloud Computing; those who believe it directly affects ROI, and those who waver in its importance and believe there is no sure way to keep data safe within the Cloud. To help fuel and resolve the debate, the European Financial industry is assembling in the Netherlands for the FST Summit Europe between the 21 - 24 September. This committee of CIO's, CISO's, Heads of Architecture and Compliance have highlighted cloud computing as a major talking point and are specifically interested in the pitfalls as well as the benefits to determine if this is a viable solution for cost saving initiatives. With representation from major financial institutions like Credit Suisse, Rabobank International, UBS Allianz and Deutsche Bank the need to look at solutions that save on a tight IT budget can be used when providi...
