From #BigData to #FastData | @CloudExpo #DevOps #AI #APM #Monitoring

Fast Data, Fast Monitoring By Christopher Tozzi Big data is old news. Today, the key to leveraging data effectively is to do fast data. In a similar fashion, traditional incident management-which entails collecting and analyzing large volumes of monitoring information-is no longer enough. Organizations must also now do "fast monitoring," which means not only collecting monitoring data; but making it actionable in real-time. This post examines what fast monitoring means, and explains how incident management teams can implement this approach to realize great benefits. Defining Fast Data To understand the concept of fast monitoring, you have to understand fast data - one of the newest innovations in the big data world. Very simply put, fast data is big data done in a fast way. Whereas big data traditionally meant storing large amounts of information and analyzing it lat... (more)

[session] SAP in the Public Cloud | @CloudExpo @Ocean9inc #Cloud #Analytics #Security

SAP in the Public Cloud - Between a Rock and a Hard Place? Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as "lift and shift." In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Swen Conrad, CEO of Ocean9, will discuss the amazing possibilities public cloud brings to enterprise workloads like SAP. You will learn how to correctly size systems in the cloud, how to adjust for critical business seasons and how to achieve high availability and disaster recovery with... (more)

View General Session Here: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here View General Session Here: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Welcome to the Era of Open Analytics Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. "Open analytics" is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark. Cloud APIs are commonly designed to support application integration representing a disconnect with the analytics ecosystem. These combined trends create significant demand for a "bring-your-own-analytics" (BYOA) ca... (more)

IT-Cloud Services Providers | @CloudExpo @SolarWinds #API #CloudNative #AI #DX #Analytics

Who Do You Trust? Thoughts on the IT-Cloud Services Provider Relationship Trust is a fickle thing, and making the leap to fully trust someone or something isn't always easy, especially in new or unfamiliar circumstances. Take for example hybrid IT, where new cloud-based IT infrastructure has introduced a level of uncertainty, or at least less-proven technologies and processes, for IT professionals. In fact, the SolarWinds IT Trends Report 2017: Portrait of a Hybrid IT Organization explored this notion of trust in the hybrid IT era, particularly as it pertains to the IT professional and cloud services provider (CSP) relationship. The survey found that on the spectrum of trust, the majority of IT professionals (62 percent) say they only somewhat trust CSPs. To contextualize this, SolarWinds also polled its THWACK® online community of IT professionals and found where e... (more)

Can Falling Prices of the Cloud Make Hosted Solutions Irrelevant? | @CloudExpo #Cloud #DataCenter

The margins of cloud products like virtual machines are still in the 50% range. In essence, price drops are going to be a regular feature for the foreseeable future. This begets the question - are hosted solutions becoming irrelevant today? Boston-based market research firm, 451 Research, has been publishing their ‘Cloud Price Index' for a few years now. The quarterly study looks into the pricing of various offerings in the cloud market to understand the shifting dynamics in the public, private and hybrid cloud market. According to Dr. Owen Rogers from 451 Research, the approach here is similar to how inflation is calculated - the price of a distributed sample of products from the market are analyzed periodically to ascertain the rise or drop in the prices of the various cloud offerings. One big takeaway from the various reports published over the years is how muc... (more)
