If databases are set to be the next big land grab for the public cloud, it’s unsurprising to see Amazon positioning themselves to dominate. Look no further than their recently announced MongoDB-compatible database-as-a-service offering Amazon DocumentDB.
The past few years, we’ve seen the rise of hybrid cloud as more organizations realize that they don’t need to make a decision to use either public or private cloud, but can make a decision about which to use based on specific application needs.
Pure has recently expanded its product line-up with a set of products aimed at helping its customers bridge the data management gap between on-premises and public cloud. In this post, Enrico Signoretti goes into detail on StorReduce. This sits in front of an AWS S3 compatible storage with the intent of deduplicating all data that comes in, seamlessly, like a sort of gateway. This gives organizations the benefits of public cloud object storage, without the strings that often come with it.
Chin-Fah Heoh sees the IT Pendulum swinging back a little bit from total cloud adoption. New services like AWS Outpost move AWS services into on-premises managed servers. Does this mean we’ll see a return of SAN and NAS, or are these just the wistful visions of a self-proclaimed “storage dinosaur?”
AWS announced the availability of new EC2 instances powered by a Amazon-developed ARM processor called Graviton. But it turns out the company originally approached AMD to produce the CPU.
Amazon launched a new cloud service, AWS RoboMaker. This provides a central platform to develop, test, and deploy robotics applications. Perhaps more importantly, it provides easy integration for other AWS services into those robot apps.
AWS re:Invent is right around the corner and I will be attending my first event as a member of the Gestalt IT team. Believe it or not, this will also be my first trip to re:Invent, so I reached out to my friends in the community for their advice on how to tackle this monstrosity of a conference.
Ned Bellavance and Stephen Foskett look at the current cloud storage landscape. Making sense of it can be a daunting task, even when just looking at Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. It can be tough to make a true comparison across cloud when considering cost, performance, and reliability. How does this cacophony of choice come into play in a multi-cloud world?
This week at Dell Technologies World, VMware announced their Virtual Cloud Network portfolio of products. They are charting a path to transform, organize, simplify, and automate technology services from the datacenter, to the cloud, and out to the edge with NSX, NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud, and NSX Cloud.
The cloud can be a scary place for those just starting their journey. But with the help of SD-WAN, migrating applications to the cloud is no different that adding a new branch office to your network. Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at how you can leverage the strengths of SD-WAN to help you on your journey.
