As businesses strive to become data-driven-organizations, a leading global market intelligence agency called the International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts that there will be 163 zettabytes of data by 2025. How will all of this data be managed, stored and transformed into useful insights? Many business are quick to ask “how can we use AI and ML to accelerate our business?” But this is where some leaders miss the mark - you cannot implement and benefit from data science tools without prioritizing data infrastructure.
Microservices- and container-based architectures along with their technologies, such as Kubernetes, have been the buzzword in every IT development and operations team. So, what’s behind the buzz? And why should enterprise and corporate organizations invest in Kubernetes or other container technologies?
Google has taken an aggressive focus on commercializing much of the technology – such as Kubernetes – it has developed over the years. The company has also been accelerating alliances with major IT infrastructure and software providers
Disruptive companies, and companies with longterm success exhibit creativity and innovation when providing value to their consumer. However, the level of business creativity required to compete can’t flourish if a business’s technology infrastructure is unable to expand and adjust with the business. This is where cloud computing comes in – it frees organizations from the complex management of IT infrastructure and operations in order to focus on creativity and innovation.
At Google Cloud Next, Google Cloud Premier Partners Dev9 and Rackspace® today announced a strategic agreement. The new alliance aims to deliver Rackspace managed services to Dev9’s customers leveraging hybrid and public cloud.
Dev9, a Kirkland, WA software development consultancy specializing in cloud modernization for enterprise and midmarket companies, announced today that it has achieved AWS Advanced Consulting Partner Status. Advanced partners have completed extensive technical training, successfully delivered multiple complex implementations on AWS, and met a rigorous set of qualifications to achieve Amazon’s coveted partner status.
About 3 years ago at re:Invent, AWS exclaimed that there is no such thing as private cloud. But what about the many companies that were implementing cloud-like functionality in their data centers? After years of watching companies attempt to implement these solutions, I have to agree with Amazon’s public cloud stance.
Outages aren't new or unique. All public clouds have experienced some levels of outages across different offerings. So with 93% of organizations using cloud services with one form or another, how do organizations minimize the impact of network outages?
You probably don’t want to do this [#]. There are alternatives to manually joining DynamoDB NoSQL documents. These include denormalizing the data, which is quite common in NoSQL environments, as well as using Amazon’s Elastic Map Reduce (EMR) service, which does have a join feature in it. However using EMR just for joins is like getting a car when all you need is a radio. If you don’t need EMR and either can’t denormalize the data or just haven’t yet then this strategy may be for you.
Have you come to NoSQL technologies only after learning SQL for years? If so, then you’ve probably wanted to JOIN some different documents (like tables, but NoSQLier) together. If you’ve started off your career in NoSQL then this will give you an additional mental tool in addition to the code.
This article will show how containerization has provided developers with the last abstraction required to decouple a development team from the traditional Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) established over a decade ago.
