    The path to good cloud architecture uses SOA

    LogicWorks

    What does SOA bring to cloud computing?  Most of those who design cloud architecture and build cloud-based systems don’t understand the answer to that question.  However, certain patterns are emerging that prove SOA is a best practice to define good cloud architecture…even though it may not be called SOA. Many enterprises are just tossing things...

    How SAP is refining its big data strategy

    Ovum StraightTalk

    With SAP having focused on building up the HANA platform, it has been later to the game in articulating its Big Data strategy. Over the past few months, several important pieces fell into place. SAP announced the extension of Smart Data Access, its federated query technology, from Sybase to the HANA platform, and announced OEM deals with Hadoop platform providers Hortonworks and Intel.

    3 reasons to love the bare metal cloud

    LogicWorks

    When infrastructure-as-a-service is referenced, we are generally discussing virtual server offerings. Bare metal challenges that assumption, having become a major part of how hybrid clouds blend public, dedicated, and private virtual infrastructure. Gathering Clouds’ contributor and cloud computing expert David Linthicum notes: “…virtualization and cloud computing are not mandatory partners.” Indeed, Linthicum’s point should not be ignored. Too often, virtualization is confused for cloud, leading to the wide spread “cloud washing” ideology that has occurred over the last few years.

    Object storage and the cloud: Why we’re all secretly obsessed with storage

    Easynet

    Many of us are not ashamed to admit an obsession with storage solutions, probably the most visited area of a particular Swedish retailer’s website. After all, a tidy house is a tidy mind, as we are told. For the CTO, storage is fast becoming the latest obsession – this time without a flat pack in site.

    IBM patent offers greener cloud computing options

    James Bourne

    IBM has patented a solution which the tech giant claims is a “green button” that distributes a cloud service to lower power systems to help save environmental costs. “We have invented a way for cloud service providers to more efficiently manage their data centres and, as a result, significantly reduce their environmental impact,” said Keith Walker, IBM master inventor.

    How to balance cloud security with agility in the healthcare vertical

    LogicWorks

    Back in July, a study released from the Ponemon Institute cited cloud-based storage and mobile applications as the typical sources for cloud security concerns within many healthcare organizations. However, it was not understood if this worry was around just the concept of cloud computing and mobile computing, or if these organizations are dealing with true issues. I suspect it was the former.

    Enterprise architecture: The key to cybersecurity

    ZapThink

    When I first discuss security in our Licensed ZapThink Architect (LZA) SOA course, I ask the class the following question: if a building had 20 exterior doors, and you locked 19 of them, would you be 95% secure? The answer to this 20-doors problem, of course, is absolutely not – you’d be 0% secure, since the bad guys are generally smart enough to find the unlocked door. While the 20-doors problem serves to illustrate how important it is to secure your Services as part of a comprehensive enterprise IT strategy, the same lesson applies to enterprise Cybersecurity in general.

    How to consolidate and integrate the public and private cloud

    Lee Fisher

    Most households have many services to keeping things ticking. No two households are the same; they have different priorities, values and structures, and different services suit different households. Water, gas and electricity all come from separate service providers, so if the electricity goes down in a house, it is not left in the cold. Like a household, organisations are unique and something that works for one organisation, may not work for its competitors.

    Couchbase CEO: Let Oracle, SAP, IBM play in the “old” database market

    James Bourne

    The database wars are about to kick off in spectacular style. Not just Oracle vs SAP – as Big Red announced its new in-memory database at the start of this week – but relational vs NoSQL. Oracle and SAP have been making plenty of noise about their in-memory capability; SAP co-CEO Bill McDermott once claimed that its HANA technology was “the fastest growing software product in the history of the world”, whilst in his recent event keynote, Larry Ellison claimed that data would move at “ungodly speeds” in the Oracle 12c database. But that’s all relational, SQL database technology - and the NoSQL brigade is coming up fast.
