‘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)

Bans Fail To Prevent Potential Enterprise Data Leakage Through Insecure File Sharing Cloud Services

The attractions of document sharing services are overriding security concerns in the rush to embrace BYOD strategies Hamburg, 18th December, 2012 - Enterprise cloud synchronization provider TeamDrive is warning about the serious security risks being run by companies that ban document and file sharing services, such as Google Drive and Dropbox, without providing an encryption-based alternative. According to the 1,300 respondents to a survey conducted by storage firm Nasuni, one in five employees is using Dropbox. What is more worrying is that 49 percent of users ignore corporate policies and use the service regardless, according to the Shadow IT in the Enterprise report. This implies that the perceived benefits of having an unmanaged, unmonitored and unsupported element in business IT overrides any sense of responsibility. TeamDrive recommends accepting the irresistib... (more)

Facebook, Google, and the Near-Term Future of the USA

On the day when the Dow Jones Industrial Average topped 12,000 for the first time since June 2008, it was impossible not to correlate the eloquence and optimism of President Obama's "State of the Union" speech on Tuesday night with the restoration of a sense of perspective and hope in the USA about the future. Obama grasped the nettle full-on. "We are poised for progress," he declared, adding: "Two years after the worst recession most of us have ever known, the stock market has come roaring back. Corporate profits are up. The economy is growing." As one blogger expressed it, though - and he is a former Goldman Sachs trader called Tyler Durden, so he ought to know wheref he speaks: "There was a massive pink elephant in the room called reality though." Durden's gripe is with what he deems to be the unreality of Obama's praising Google and Facebook so highly in an Ameri... (more)

Cloud Computing Security Issues and Challenges By @GiladPN | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

The US Federal Communications Commission has recently reported that "theft of digital information has become the most commonly reported fraud, surpassing physical theft." Businesses can do a lot to protect themselves. The FCC issued a Tip Sheet for small businesses to promote employee security training, firewalls, securing of WiFis, and more. But for business operating in (or migrating to) cloud environments; data security, cloud computing security issues, and challenges take on  new meanings and require new strategies. Security in the Cloud: Unique Challenges In the cloud, data security poses new risks and challenges. We are no longer concerned just with burglars breaking into our offices to steal computers, but rather with the data belonging to complete systems deployed to the cloud. When using public cloud infrastructure like that of AWS, VMware, Microsoft Azure... (more)

New Relic's #Microservices and #Docker Platform | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]
