Eliminating toil in the cloud with NoOps automation

eliminating toil

A wildlife videographer typically returns from a shoot with hundreds of gigabytes of raw video files on 512GB memory cards. It takes about 40 minutes to import the files into a desktop device, including various prompts from the computer for saving, copying or replacing files.

What is AWS Outposts? AWS in your house.

Outposts concept

The public cloud is great, but there are still some jobs you need to keep close to home. That’s why hybrid clouds, where you use both the public and private clouds to get your work done, are so popular. Lately, most of our attention has been focused on using Kubernetes container orchestration. But, for all […]

Bringing a bang to your serverless processes: Firecracker

New Years Eve fireworks

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda‘s growing popularity is proof positive that serverless computing is for real. But wouldn’t it be nice if you had a better view of how Lamba’s function-as-a-service actually works? Or, better still, if Lambda’s inner workers were open-sourced so you could use them in your own serverless projects? Guess what? AWS […]

What is AWS Aurora?

One of my first IT hats was as a DBMS administrator (DBA). I was a Datatrieve and xBase developer, who moved on to DB2. IBM DB2 was the first real relational database management system (RDBMS). While RBMSs aren’t as fashionable as they once were–it’s all NoSQL according to some of my friends–much vital enterprise work […]

If you want to do serverless computing today chances are you’re using Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda. Which is fine if you’re wedded to AWS, but if you’d rather use another cloud or run a hybrid cloud, AWS-specific Lambda may not be ideal. Enter TriggerMesh Knative Lambda Sources (KLASS), which offers a way to bridge […]

Strap yourself in. We’ll be going to some interesting places with the cloud in the near future. 1. Hybrid Cloud Takes Off For the longest time, the hybrid cloud didn’t really go much of anywhere. That’s because it wasn’t easy to integrate private and public clouds. Then, along came Kubernetes and everything changed. With Kubernetes, […]

Four recent trends pointing to big things ahead for the hybrid cloud

The cloud has fundamentally changed. We had been focusing on the rise of the public cloud, but these last several months have showed us that the hybrid cloud may yet prove to be the real cloud IT model moving forward. As evidence, consider these four recent developments: The Rise of Kubernetes Kubernetes took over as […]

Breaking through with managed DevSecOps on AWS

cloud-breakthrough

But there’s also a lot of value to be gained from the way we build new digital-driven systems and solutions. Until […]
