Ensuring High-Availability for Hybrid Cloud-Based Apps The dynamic nature of the cloud means that change is a constant when it comes to modern cloud-based infrastructure. Delivering modern applications to end users, therefore, is a constantly shifting challenge. Delivery automation helps IT Ops teams ensure that apps are providing an optimal end user experience over hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments, no matter what the current state of the infrastructure is. To employ a delivery automation strategy that reflects your business rules, making real-time decisions based on a combination of real user monitoring, synthetic testing, APM, NGINX / local load balancers, and other data sources, is critical. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Simon Jones, Evangelist and head of marketing for Cedexis, will show you how easy it can be to leverage these disparate data sourc... (more)

How to Manage, Deliver and Govern Hybrid Cloud Services | @CloudExpo #SaaS #ITaaS #Cloud

Many enterprise and government IT organizations are realizing the benefits of cloud computing by extending IT delivery and management processes across private and public cloud services. But they are often challenged with balancing the need for centralized cloud governance without stifling user-driven innovation. This strategy requires an approach that fundamentally reshapes how IT is delivered today, shifting the focus from infrastructure to services aggregation, and mixing and matching the best services for meeting organizations’ current and future needs. For enterprises, the IT as a Service (ITaaS) model is a means for IT organizations to unify cloud services delivery and management so they can speed innovation, collaborate on a global scale, reduce operational costs, and grow the bottom line - while ensuring consistent cloud governance. Last week we discussed ho... (more)

Hybrid Cloud - Key Benefits and Must-Have Requirements | @CloudExpo #DX #Compliance

Gartner says by 2020, a corporate "No-Cloud" Policy will be as rare as a "No-Internet" policy is today and specifically the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) market is projected to continue to grow more than 25 percent per year through 2019. This surge in cloud adoption also represents a huge shift in cloud spending by IT organizations, directly or indirectly affecting more than $1 trillion dollars in Cloud IT purchases by 2020, according to Gartner. Of course, not every enterprise app and data bit will move fully to the cloud. To quote yet another study - this one by North Bridge Venture Partners and GigaOM Research - many of these deployments will be hybrid in nature. For enterprises and smaller organizations alike, it's essential to build a cloud strategy that adopts public and private cloud resources, on-premise systems, containers, and more. Research confirms... (more)

[video] Hybrid IT with @Peak_Ten | @CloudExpo #AI #DX #SDN #DataCenter

"Peak 10 is a hybrid infrastructure provider across the nation. We are in the thick of things when it comes to hybrid IT," explained Michael Fuhrman, Chief Technology Officer at Peak 10, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

Hybrid Cloud Study | @CloudExpo @IBMCAI #Cloud #BigData #IoT #API

"We live in a world where companies must take advantage of all of their resources to succeed and deliver services and apps in an as a service model regardless of whether they reside in a public or private cloud or on their existing infrastructure," said IBM Global Technology Services General Manager for Systems Services Laura Sanders." Two-thirds of organizations implementing hybrid cloud report they're already gaining competitive advantage from their hybrid environments and are nearly three times as likely to use it to assemble data assets or monetize data, according to findings released by IBM (NYSE: IBM). With a hybrid cloud approach, organizations can be selective about when to use cloud and when to use traditional IT infrastructure - delivering the best functionality while meeting speed and flexibility needs, as well as resiliency, security and regulatory requi...

Progress Launches First Vendor-Agnostic Hybrid Data Gateway at @CloudExpo | @ProgressSW #BigData #Analytics #AI #DX

Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source - without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It's no longer a "nice-to-have" but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It's the new "must have" in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. They're dealing with greater volumes of data than ever before, and much of this resides behind corporate firewalls. Traditional approaches for exposing this data, such as VPN and SSH tunneling are difficult to manage and not engineered for the cloud. If you want to create a frictionless data access experience for your customers, join us at Cloud Expo, June 6-8 in New York City.... (more)

VMware Crosses the Rubicon Redux

VMware's (VMW) recent hybrid cloud announcement was both expected and yet provocative. It falls into a pattern of successful moves made in virtualization security and networking as the company to grow its addressable market by virtualizing servers and delivering increased IT agility, efficiency and economy. In 2009 I talked about how VMware, through acquisitions and engineering, entered the security space despite a robust virtualization security ecosystem (see VMware Crosses the Rubicon - March 2009). VMware was threatened then by the new security challenges being brought into the production data center by virtualization and the inability of its partners to move fast enough to address them. There were both technology and business case issues to the virtualization ecosystem challenge in those days.  VMware responded to the tepid ecosystem progress at least in part ... (more)

Is Hybrid Cloud a Realistic Destination?

We’ve all heard it. Security and regulatory compliance are issues in the public cloud.  And building a private cloud many say does not pass a cost/benefit analysis.  Given these hurdles, what is an enterprise to do?  Well, according to Datamation, 47% of enterprises are going to implement some sort of private cloud in 2013 regardless of perceived challenges.  And Gartner’s latest report on public cloud computing adoption, finds that global spending on public cloud services is expected to grow from $76.9B in 2010 to $210B in 2016. It’s become increasingly clear that every enterprise will have at least one internal cloud and at least one external cloud in use.  As every enterprise architecture will be hybrid and multi-vendor, the better question is how to properly assess the enterprise portfolio to determine which applications and services are best delivered by publi...

Taking Control of the Hybrid Cloud By @DerekCollison | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

2015 is being billed by many in the industry as the "Year of the Hybrid Cloud." In fact, more than 65 percent of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud technologies before 2016, vastly driving the rate and pace of change in IT organizations, according to IDC FutureScape for Cloud. The reason hybrid cloud is so attractive is that organizations believe they can achieve greater levels of scalability and cost-effectiveness by using a combination of in-house IT resources and public cloud environments tailored to their unique needs. Despite these promises, the evolution to a hybrid cloud approach can leave enterprises disappointed and wanting more. The hybrid cloud introduces greater complexity because each environment brings with it its own unique tools for deployment, management, monitoring and security; and can result in higher costs if enterprises ar...
