[slides] Composable Infrastructure | @CloudExpo @HTBase #SDN #DataCenter

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Why Composable Infrastructure Instead of HyperConvergence? HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it. This meant that up to now the HyperConverged vendors were in charge of the requirements.

[slides] Make Use of Serverless Compute Solutions | @CloudExpo @Infostretch #AI #IoT #M2M #AWS #Serverless

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here How to Make Use of Serverless Compute Solutions for IoT Device Simulation When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it's simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be looking at some significant engineering investment. On-demand, serverless computing enables developers to try out a fleet of devices on IoT gateways with ease. With a sensor simulator built on top of AWS Lambda, it's possible to elastically gene...

Patterns, Platforms and Automation in #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo #DX #IoT #SmartCities

Any significant business process that can be documented and best practices identified - will be.  Any defined process that can be standardized - will be.  Standardized processes that can be codified and automated (through robotic software automation), will be - if the volume justifies it.  If the process is repeatable across many companies it will be offered as a shared service on a platform in a cloud. If you agree with these technology maxims, then you are likely to agree that most existing business processes offer little competitive advantages in the long run, and the advantages of new innovations are fleeting so must be captured early.  They will eventually become part of a shared services platform followed and used by your competitors.  For example, 20 and 40 foot shipping containers offered a competitive advantage for shipping companies and ports that were ea...

FinTech’s Performance and User Experience | @DevOpsSummit #Agile #FinTech #WebPerf

FinTech's Performance and User Experience By Craig Lowell In Michael Lewis’s 2013 best-seller Flash Boys, in which he takes a deep dive into the world of high-speed trading, he reveals how certain financial insiders had managed to game the system by reducing latency as much as possible in order to get an advantage over their competitors. Lewis showed how a fiberoptic connection that is just a millisecond or two faster than someone else’s can allow automated trading software to conduct transactions at the lowest possible prices. For the user (or machine) that had just the tiniest increase in latency, a stock price would appear on screen, but by the time the command to purchase it was received, the offering would no longer be available. While high-speed trading represents an extreme case, and that level of optimization isn’t quite as big of a deal for the vast majorit... (more)

[slides] TCO and the Cloud Adoption Lifecycle | @CloudExpo @CloudHealthTech #AWS #API #Cloud

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Total Cost of Ownership and the Cloud Adoption Lifecycle Cloud adoption is often driven by a desire to increase efficiency, boost agility and save money. All too often, however, the reality involves unpredictable cost spikes and lack of oversight due to resource limitations. Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Joe Kinsella, CTO and Founder of CloudHealth Technologies, tackled the question: "How do you build a fully optimized cloud?" He will examine: Why TCO is critical to achieving cloud success - and why attendees should be thinking holistically about cloud cost management. The critical elements of a sound governance program (e.g., tagging, implementing lights on/lights off policies). Real-world examples of companies that have driven cost savings, governance, and security through ... (more)

Sia Could Disrupt the Cloud Market | @CloudExpo #AI #DX #Siacoin #FinTech #Blockchain

Blockchain technology is taking over the world. It is an ingenious invention by a person or a group of people known by the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 8 years, you have heard of Bitcoin. The underlying technology behind Bitcoin is called blockchain, a public ledger of all the Bitcoin transactions that ever happened on its network. However, the use of blockchain is not limited to Bitcoin. There have been numerous projects that are making use of blockchain technology. The most famous of these is Ethereum, which is a simplified platform to let developers build apps (dApps) on the blockchain. Another prominent project using blockchain technology is Sia, a distributed cloud storage platform. The idea for Sia was conceived back in 2013 at HackMIT, a hackathon hosted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The ide... (more)
