Break Down the Silos: Correlate Data Between Vendors
By Chris Riley
Thanks to the DevOps movement, we now understand why software delivery chains
that consist of a series of silos are bad. They complicate communication
between different teams, leading to delivery delays, backtracking, and bugs.
When it comes to incident management, there is another type of silo to
contend with - the kind that separates incident management data from one
vendor or product to another. These silos hamper incident resolution, as it
makes it more difficult to collect and analyze monitoring data from multiple
How do you break down these silos to keep incident management operations
Identify the Silos
The first step in working past incident management silos is to understand why
silos exist in the first place.
The reason is simple: Modern infrastructure consists o... (more)
Four Questions to Ask When It's Time to Modernize Your Data Center
Cloud computing is here to stay. The agility and scalability of the cloud
model - as well as its ability to transform up-front capital expenditures
into flexible operating expenditures - are too compelling to ignore. For CIOs
in organizations of all sizes, the question is no longer whether to take
advantage of the cloud ... but how. Unfortunately, that question isn't as
easy to answer as it might sound.
Not all cloud providers are created equal. Different vendors offer different
features, terms and service levels. And once you engage with one vendor, it
can be difficult to change your mind down the road - even if that vendor's
offering doesn't fully mesh with your existing IT practices and policies.
While navigating the cloud marketplace can be a challenge, you can
successfully formulate your strate... (more)
Serverless Computing or Functions as a Service (FaaS) is gaining momentum.
Amazon is fueling the innovation by expanding Lambda to edge devices and
content distribution network. IBM, Microsoft, and Google have their own
FaaS offerings in the public cloud. There are over half-a-dozen open source
serverless projects that are getting the attention of developers. This year,
expect to see new platforms emerging in this segment.
With all the excitement and hype around serverless, it’s important to
understand what really defines the platform. Here is an attempt to highlight
the key attributes of serverless computing platforms. For customers, it acts
as a checklist for choosing the right offering while helping platform vendors
in optimizing their product.

What You Need to Know About Hybrid Cloud Security
Thanks to its many business benefits, cloud computing is becoming commonplace
within organizations of all sizes. Historically, companies have struggled to
determine which model - public or private - best met their needs. But of
late, IT professionals are increasingly starting to realize that both public
and private clouds can exist harmoniously within the same organization, and
that, in many instances, a hybrid cloud model can actually be the most
RightScale's "2016 State of the Cloud Survey" found that hybrid cloud
adoption increased from 58 percent to 71 percent year-over-year. The uptick
in hybrid cloud computing has not been overlooked by cybercriminals, who have
been busy adapting traditional attack methods and devising new ways to target
threat surfaces and vulnerabilities in the cloud.
Part 2: What You Need to Know About Hybrid Cloud Security
In the first article of this three-part series on hybrid cloud security, we
discussed the Shared Responsibility Model and examined how the most common
attack strategies persist, are amplified, or are mitigated as assets move
from data centers to the cloud. Today, we'll look at some of the unique
security challenges that are introduced by public cloud environments.
While cloud computing delivers many operational, cost-saving and security
benefits, it takes place in a public, shared and on-demand environment, which
creates a new set of security challenges for organizations. Because cloud
computing infrastructure is also dynamic and scalable, it changes more
frequently and further complicates the security monitoring process.
Because of these factors, many legacy security monitoring tools that were
built for the ... (more)
Collaborating in the Cloud: What You Need to Know to Keep Your Data Safe
As cloud adoption continues to transform business, today's global enterprises
are challenged with managing a growing amount of information living outside
of the data center. The rapid adoption of IoT and increasingly mobile
workforce are exacerbating the problem. Ensuring secure data sharing and
efficient backup poses capacity and bandwidth considerations as well as
policy and regulatory compliance issues.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Kurt Kuckein, Director of Product
Management at DDN, will explore how to address the massive scalability
requirements of Big Data and the need to provide secure cloud collaboration,
file sharing and content distribution across the entire enterprise.

Store It, Secure It, Share It
By Christine Cignoli
At this point in the hybrid cloud evolution, data is accumulating quickly in
the cloud and in data centers, not to mention moving from place to place. So
it's natural that storage concerns are rising. This recent survey from
Wikibon found that software services are the most popular use of cloud
technology, followed by infrastructure and platform services. All these
applications' data need storage that can scale up and down as needed, as
another survey found: Cloud storage elasticity was respondents' top cloud
And on the cloud app front, here's a look at one class of business
applications that are really tied into cloud computing: collaboration tools.
Lots of these apps are new, or relatively new, and employees depend on them
as they work anywhere and everywhere there's a WiFi connection. File sharing,
