The enterprise embrace of application containers brings with it agility, scaling, rapid response to continuous change and new requirements for securing production workloads in public clouds. As with most infrastructure advances, the scaling of application containers in production is exposing previously unforeseen consequences, especially security risks. Among them, according to research by cloud security specialist Lacework, are an explosion ... Full article
In an increasingly data-driven world, with flourishing data volumes and improvements to technological infrastructure, big data promises to benefit businesses in nearly every industry. A study conducted by the Harvard Business Review found that companies leveraging advanced analytics will, on average, experience profit gains and operational improvements between 5 and 6 percent higher than their competitors. By 2020, the ... Full article
Unlike most data center operators who oversee racks of moderate density with relatively low average server utilization, the Enterprise Tech operator has to satisfy the added demand for very high compute HPC-like throughputs. This entry of HPC-like loads into the traditional enterprise is being driven in a large part by the evolution of hyperscale and cloud businesses requiring AI, ... Full article
The shift to cloud-native applications and services brings with it a new set of monitoring and security challenges as early adopters of application containers, micro-services and serverless computing struggle to gain a comprehensive view of their cloud infrastructure. Growing requirements for cloud management—especially in hybrid clouds—is forging partnerships among public cloud and “cloud-native intelligence” vendors offering tools designed to ... Full article
The parable of the four blind men describing an elephant could be applied to data center management, as can the proverb about divide-and-conquer: too often, disparate constituencies monitor data center performance through the limited prism of their own operational area. Not often enough is there holistic, overarching visibility into all facets of the operation, from monitoring to asset change ... Full article
Microsoft’s reassurances notwithstanding, the software giant’s acquisition of GitHub, the project collaboration platform, has raised concerns about the future direction of open-source software development. Skeptics are taking a wait-and-see approach toward the deal to determine whether the software giant makes good on its promise to promote open-source development while raising the status of developers within technology and scientific organizations. ...

Ideally, data would be the foundation of every business decision: for optimizing operational processes, for analytical insights and for competitive advantage. But a recent TDWI survey exposes a very different reality. According to the report, only 11 percent of respondents said that they were very satisfied with their companies' investments in data and analytics projects to meet strategic goals ... Full article
Hybrid cloud management issues are moving to the fore as more enterprise cloud consumers establish “direct” links to public clouds that ease the transition but leave them with little visibility into DevOps functions and how in-demand capabilities such as microservices are actually being delivered. Those are among the central conclusions of a cloud management survey released this week that ... Full article
If another indication were needed of the explosive growth in cloud services, AI-based workloads and Linux in the enterprise - along with their attractiveness to investors - it’s the acquisition of fast-growth Penguin Computing, announced today by Smart Global Holdings for $85 million. Penguin, the 20-year-old advanced scale hardware solutions provider, develops open, Linux-based cloud and HPC solutions ranging ... Full article
When Red Hat acquired application container specialist CoreOS in January, it was looking to leverage the startup’s energetic development team churning out open-source tools for agile cloud computing. Those efforts appear to be bearing fruit with the release of several “operator” tools designed for container-based application development and for monitoring cloud consumption. The Red Hat unit recently released to ... Full article
Any enterprise that got its start before the dawn of the internet era comes equipped with a legacy in its systems of records that are several decades old.  These systems have been through multiple patch and upgrade cycles over time, making them inflexible to change. Simply put, these systems may create more problems than they solve. And yet Gartner ... Full article
The hotspots and energy hogs that are enterprise datacenters are increasingly located in northern climes. As demand for cooling intensifies, and datacenter power usage maxes out, some have even proposed floating datacenters that can tap sea water for cooling. Now, Microsoft Research is floating a green concept for a “self-sustaining underwater datacenter” as a way to conserve energy while ... Full article
As the low-code approach to rapid application development gathers steam, new investors are pumping huge sums into the sector designed to speed delivery of distributed applications with minimum hand coding or upfront investment in training. The latest example came this week when Wall Street powerhouses Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) and KKR (NYSE: KKR) committed a whopping $360 million in ... Full article
