    Kevin L. Jackson

    by Kevin L.Jackson  With all the news these days about cyberterrorism and hacking the cloud may seem like the last place you would want to put your precious information. Pew Research has even suggested that cyber-attacks are likely to increase. Some 61% of over 1600 security expert respondents to a recent survey said “yes” that a major attack causing widespread harm would occur by 2025according to the Pew Research study. The cold hard fact, however, is that fear of the cyberterrorist and hackers, while definitely valid, is mostly misplaced.  I hold this contrarian view, because…

  • Oh Dear, the Green Pundits Don’t Understand the Cloud or Multitenancy

    Bob Warfield
    16 Jan 2015 | 11:46 am
    Recently I was drawn into a discussion of how Green the Cloud is where I responded as follows: SaaS is going to come out ahead of any reasonably calculation of carbon emissions versus on-prem. Multi-tenancy is just a lot more efficient. Look at the data centers of companies like Google, Amazon, and Facebook. Most corporates wish they could come close as they watch these companies dictate every detail right down to the exact design of servers in order to minimize their costs. As everyone agrees, most of that cost is energy. So choose SaaS if you’re worried about carbon, and yes, it…

    Cannon Technologies, a U.K. data center vendor, has modified one of its modular data center products for a U.K. government customer, integrating it with a cooling system by Stulz, a German data center cooling supplier. Modular data centers are used to deploy data center capacity quickly. Some users, such as military organizations, also want to be able to move a data center from place to place, which is the use case that made the modification necessary.

    Jeff Barr

    My colleague Peter Moon wrote the guest post below and asked me to get it out to the world ASAP! — Jeff; AWS currently offers SDKs for seven different programming languages – Java, C#, Ruby, Python, JavaScript, PHP, and Objective C (iOS), and we closely follow the language trends among our customers and the general software community. Since its launch, the Go programming language has had a remarkable growth trajectory, and we have been hearing customer requests for an official AWS SDK with increasing frequency. We listened and decided to deliver a new AWS SDK to our Go-using customers. As…
  • Zend Server 8 – New Monitoring and Performance Tools

    Jeff Barr
    29 Jan 2015 | 8:35 am
    Late last week I met with Andi Gutmans and Michel Gerin of Zend Technologies. Because Andi is a self-described “coffee snob,” we headed directly to the nearby Dilettante Cafe for an in-depth chat. It was interesting to hear how they had grown from an organization focused on the PHP language to one that was taking on the more broad mission of scalability, monitoring, and visibility in to the run-time state of web and mobile applications that happened to be built using PHP. In fact, the only mention of PHP came when I remarked that we had spent no time discussing it. Andi spent more time…

    Have you ever had to set up, run, and scale an email server? While it has been a long time since I have done this on my own, I do know that it is a lot of work! Users expect to be able to access their email from the application, device, or browser of their choice. They want to be able to send and receive large files (multi-megabyte video attachments and presentations often find their way in to my inbox). Email administrators and CSO’s are looking for robust security measures. Paradoxically, email is both mission-critical and pedestrian. Everyone needs it to work, but hardly anyone truly…

    Developers all over the world are using Amazon DynamoDB to build applications that take advantage of its ability to provide consistent low-latency performance. The developers that I have talked to enjoy the flexibility provided by DynamoDB’s schemaless model, along with the ability to scale capacity up and down as needed.  They also benefit from the DynamoDB Reserved Capacity model in situations where they are able to forecast their need for read and write throughput ahead of time. A little over a year ago we made DynamoDB more flexible by adding support for Global Secondary Indexes.

  • State of Networking - Part 2 : Virtualization Layer

    Chris Swan
    27 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    TL;DRThe virtualization layer is where the action has been at for the last couple of years. The ability to configure software defined networks in the hypervisor layer combined with the ability of orchestration systems to reach down into networking hardware through their APIs provides a complete and compelling solution for anybody building a cloud. Of course the big public cloud providers had this stuff figured out some time ago, so what's really happening here is that the technology is becoming more accessible to those building smaller clouds (whether they're public or private).BackgroundThis…

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:28 pm
    Risk management has been around for a long time.  Financial managers run risk assessments for nearly all business models, and the idea of risk carries nearly as many definitions as the Internet.  However, for IT managers and IT professionals, risk management still frequently takes a far lower priority that other operations  and support activities. For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   Risk management should follow a structured process acknowledging…

    It is a relatively common practice among SaaS companies to give a lot of their product away at the beginning and then cut back on free offerings (sometimes even cutting them entirely) as they grow and mature. The reason is quite simple: while the company is new and flush with cash, it is easy to give the product away. But, when the VCs start asking about the revenue growth the company promised, the free offerings are the first to go – and price increases arrive. The company needs to extract more money from their current leads – and the smaller customers are hung out to dry. By now…

  • Sales Enablement for Your Core Sales Teams

    Peter Mollins
    21 Jan 2015 | 8:47 am
    Every sales organization can be divided into top performers, under performers, and your core sales team in the middle. Research from the Aberdeen Group looked at these three groups and found some striking outcomes for each set of sales people. Top sales performers, those that exceeded quota, comprised about 21% of the average team. While under performing players, those that hit less than 10% of their quota, accounted for 14% of the typical team. So, two-thirds of your sales organization consists of core players. Sales people that can be poised to move up. Related research from the Maritz…
  • Turning Forgotten Sales Decks Into SlideShare Gold

    MarketingProfs MarketingProfs
    19 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    In most B2B sales organizations, sales decks or slide presentations are a critical tool for connecting with prospects. These decks generally do a good job of summarizing who your business is and what value it offers, and they act as an easily-sharable asset that prospects can distribute to other stakeholders within their own organization. But what happens to those sales decks after the presentation ends or the deal closes? In most organizations, they die in a folder somewhere — forgotten and never used again. Why is that bad? Because sales decks often contain useful information about your…

    “Dear Diary,” These words carry 2 powerful implications: If I am the author, this information is personally valuable and private to me. If I am not the author and reading someone else’s “dear diary” entry without being granted permission, I am violating a deeply personal boundary.

  • Why It’s Important To Choose Your Backup Window

    Stephanie Vogel
    30 Dec 2014 | 10:35 am
    Data backup can be a time consuming and inconvenient process. There is (rightly) lots of talk about how to execute the backup process, but much less time talking about when it should be done. Companies should be backing up their data when they are finished with their normal, everyday operations. Why? The reason you are backing up in the first place is to ensure you have a complete copy of the most up-to-date information in the event of a disaster. If you’re making this copy before you’ve finished making the changes, the copy you have is obsolete upon its very creation. Making reports and…

  • Service management software can cut unpaid overtime.

    Cheryl Humberstone
    1 Feb 2013 | 3:32 am
    New research from Direct Line for Business has suggested that more than five hours of unpaid work is completed by British tradespeople every week. The study found that seven in ten British tradespeople work extra unpaid hours each week, which it says equates to around £4.8bn in unpaid overtime every year. According to the findings, just 26% of workers claim they do not work any unpaid overtime in a typical week and on average, each tradesperson completes 5.29 hours of unpaid work a week, totalling 275 hours a year and equivalent to around £1,702 in wages (based on the minimum wage).

    Picture credit: SoftLayer Six months after it was launched, IBM and SoftLayer opened the doors of its new UK data centre to the media, with IBM UK&I cloud leader Doug Clark and SoftLayer CTO Marc Jones in attendance to review 2014 and look forward to the year ahead. The data centre in Chessington, run by Digital Realty, was until 2012 a shipping warehouse before being converted. Each pod, which Jones pointed out had the same design in every SoftLayer data centre, has 150 racks, 4000 physical nodes, and a 10,000 ft² isolated zone. Alongside the usual mix of generators is a series of…

    (c)iStock.com/sproetniek Let’s face it, 2014 was a busy year for hacks and data breaches. There were the high profile Sony hacks, the record breaking fines handed out as a result of ePHI (electronic Protected Health Information) healthcare data breaches in the US, and sites such as Gmail and eBay were also targeted by hackers. The potential for breaches to occur more frequently as businesses collect increasing amounts of consumer data was discussed at the CES conference earlier this year, and was highlighted as a concern by Barack Obama during his State of the Union address on January…
  • IBM launches cloud-based technology Identity Mixer to protect personal data

    James

    (c)iStock.com/graffizone IBM has announced the launch of Identity Mixer, a cloud-based technology which aims to protect personal data by only revealing the bare minimum for transactions, on its BlueMix developer platform. The release, which has not coincidentally been pegged for Data Privacy Day, uses a cryptographic algorithm to only reveal selected pieces of a user’s information, such as date of birth, home address, and credit card number, to third parties. An example given of how this service works is through a video streaming service for age-restricted films. Instead of a user…
  • Box’s IPO: Shares go skywards, but reaction is mixed

    (c)iStock.com/ngkaki “IPOs are one of the great, mysterious Wall Street spectacles,” Shawn Tully wrote in Forbes earlier this week. “The praise is overwhelming, the definition of ‘success’ is baffling, and anyone who questions the system is taken for a dullard.” This might explain why everyone and their dog has attempted to shed light on one of tech’s most eagerly anticipated public offerings. So let’s start off with the facts. Box secured a $1.7 billion valuation in its IPO, raising about $175 million on its first day. Shares soared to a high…

    (c)iStock.com/filadendron A new report from government IT network MeriTalk has assessed how federal agencies are keen on the concept of cloud computing, but are reticent to migrate their full IT estate over for the moment. This is not to say federal firms aren’t completely against the idea, however. Nearly one in five (19%) of the 150 respondents say they deliver more than a quarter of their agency’s IT services through the cloud. The most popular choice to move was email (50%), followed by web hosting (45%) and servers and storage (43%). Perhaps not surprisingly, finance and…

    30 Nov 2014 | 4:00 pm
    Identities, the 'accounts' by which Cloud and Web users identify themselves, are tricky to manage, and tiresome for the users. Cloud services such as Office 365 have their main use in large organisations and so there have to be easy ways for system administrators to maintain them. Microsoft provide three alternative strategies; Cloud identities, Synced identities and federated identities. What is the differences between them, and which should you choose?

    An overview of Windows Active Directory Active Directory (AD) is a directory service that Microsoft developed for Windows domain networks and is included in most Windows Server operating systems as a set of processes and services. An AD domain controller authenticates and authorizes all users and computers in a Windows domain type network—assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers and installing or updating software. For example, when a user logs into a computer that is part of a Windows domain, Active Directory checks the submitted password and determines whether the user…

  • Signs of falling victim to identity theft

    admin
    27 Oct 2014 | 5:18 am
    Identity is a crucial element in most computer security mechanisms. Access controls depend on identifying the users or devices that are allowed to view or use resources and keeping others out. We’re asked to “prove” our identities every time we board a plane, check into a hotel, make a purchase via check or credit card, or log onto a computer or secure web site. But the standard of proof is often very low, and in the IT world, we seem to have a misconception about what identity really is – and isn’t. Identity theft in which someone pretends to be someone else by assuming that…

    About a decade ago, prevailing IT traditions dictated that businesses use on-premises infrastructure for their enterprise applications. However, a paradigm shift has occurred with the emergence of IaaS and on-demand cloud providers such as AWS, etc. It has given birth to a new virtualization strategy that most businesses have been quick to adopt – use servers provided by third-party cloud vendors, eliminate infrastructure limitations, develop and deploy applications on a single hardware. The fact that businesses can do all this and more without spending millions of dollars on IT systems is…

    Although this series is about the payback of migrating to the cloud, not every aspect of moving to the cloud will save money standing alone. In certain situations, the software costs can be greater in the cloud. The main drivers of increased software costs in a cloud environment are the virtualization software and the service management software. Each consolidated system will require a license for virtualization software and additional service management software. These costs are partially offset by the reduction in the number of operating system licenses, due to the fewer number of systems.

On the infrastructure layer, VMs, network, and storage are monitored, revealing memory consumption, CPU utilization, and network connection metrics. On the application layer, database performance, browsing latency, and actual application functionalities, such as users registration, login and cart are…

    This happens to me often, especially when I'm visiting relatives' houses: My computer knows the Wi-Fi password from when I last connected to the network -- two years ago -- but I've completely forgotten it, though my mother is about 65 percent sure she wrote it down on a Post-it note seven months ago.A forgotten Wi-Fi password isn't a problem for me and my omniscient laptop, but it is a problem for, say, my brother, who needs the password if he wants to jump on the network with his Japanese iPhone. My mom is hunting for the Post-it, but prospects are lookin' bleak.Luckily, there's an easy way…

    Moving to the cloud has plenty of challenges that business leaders need to prepare and plan for, in many cases the network is being ignored or left until late in the planning process. One industry analyst mentioned that of the organizations that he speaks to about cloud computing projects, 9-out-of-10 do not include the network in their planning process. It is possible that the reason that organizations forgo including the network in their cloud readiness assessment is due to the fact that most applications moving to the cloud are small projects or from smaller organizations.
