Space-Based Cloud Storage | @CloudExpo #DataCenter #Storage #Telecom

The Need for Speed - Making the Leap to Space Based Cloud Storage Enterprises and governments rely upon the timely transfer of mission-critical information to keep their projects and operations flowing smoothly. To do so requires a complex chain of communications hubs working efficiently, and even when they are working optimally, there can still be seconds of lag time between communications. That may not seem like much, but being able to get information a second faster than the competition (or the enemy) can make a huge difference. Current technology, which can require multiple hops and interchanges through terrestrial networks, slows information down while at the same time exposing it to monitoring and manipulation along the way. Even the most efficient cloud network requires third-party data centers to replicate globally to provision worldwide offices effectively... (more)

The Human Body and @Cisco's #DataCenter Automation | @CloudExpo #AI #ML

Disclaimer : I am an IT guy and my knowledge on human body is limited to my daughter's high school biology class book and information obtained from search engines. So, excuse me if any of the information below is not represented accurately ! The human body is the most complex machine ever created. With a complex network of interconnected organs, millions of cells and the most advanced processor, human body is the most automated system in this planet. In this article, we will draw comparisons between the working of a human body to that of a data center. We will learn how self-defense and self-healing capabilities of our human body is similar to firewalls and intelligent monitoring capabilities in our data centers. We will draw parallels between human body automation to data center automation and explain different levels of automation we need to drive in data centers...

Software Defined Management Dashboards | @CloudExpo #SDN #DataCenter

Six (or More) Data Center and Software Defined Management Dashboards Recently I found in my inbox a link to a piece 6 Dashboards for Managing Every Modern Data Center that caught my attention. I was hoping to see who the six different dashboard solutions were instead of finding list of dashboard considerations for modern data centers and data infrastructures. Turns out the piece was nothing more than a list of six items featured as part of the vendors (Sunbird) piece about what to look for in a dashboard (e.g. their product). Sure there were some of the usual key performance indicator (KPI) associated with or related to IT Service Management (ITSM), Data Center Infrastructure (Insight/Information) Management (DCIM), Configuration and Change management databases (CMDB), availability, capacity and Performance Management Databases (PMDB) among others.

The Impact of Web Caching | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Storage #WebPerf

The Impact of Web Caching By Alva Yashaswi Try to remember something that happened on your last vacation. How long did it take you to recall? Now, try to remember it again. You were probably able to recall it faster the second time — but, why? This is because as soon as you recalled the event the first time, your brain saved the information to your recent memory. The same concept applies to caching. Caching is a way of temporarily storing the contents of a webpage in locations near the user, similar to the way our memory works. There are several types of caching options available like database caching, application caching, and distributed caching. In this article, we’ll talk about web caching and how it affects user experience. What is web caching? Website developers use different techniques to optimize performance and improve speed. One such method is web caching, w... (more)
