The US Federal Communications Commission has recently reported that "theft of

In the cloud, data security poses new risks and challenges. We are no longer

Jon Davis posted an interesting article discussing whether the Microsoft
stack is really more expensive than open source alternatives.
Jon has a point; Microsoft’s restricted (i.e., Express) editions are as
free as the open source alternatives. This is undeniably true, since the
purpose of many software vendor’s “Express” edition is to compete
against open source on price. However, the difference is that with open
source you get the full-powered editions. For example, Linux (e.g., CentOs),
Xen (for virtualization), PostgreSQL/MySQL, Apache, Java, Tomcat, AspectJ,
Lucene, Hibernate, and Eclipse are all robust, full-featured, and powerful
technologies available for free to developers. The variety and the quality of
product available from the open source community are just astonishing.
On the other hand, Microsoft’s “Express” editions are just limited
editions that are... (more)

But My Build and Deploy Process is Fine....
Maybe your build and deploy process for your latest application is fine - you
type a single command and your build process automatically retrieves your
application from the source control system, configures the application
appropriately for the target environment, and copies all the necessary files
to the production servers while you head to the coffee shop for your morning
cup of caffeine and the newspaper. But I know that the reality for the vast
majority of projects I've seen (including many of my own applications!) are
built and deployed using a written multistep checklist - some ... (more)

Here is a question that I have been pondering on and off for quite a while:
Why do "cool kids" choose Ruby or PHP to build websites instead of Java?
I have to admit that I do not have an answer.
Why do I even care? Because I am a Java developer. Like many Java developers,
I get along with Java well. Not only the language itself, but the development
environments (Eclipse for example), step-by-step debugging helper, wide
availability of libraries and code snippets, and the readily accessible
information on almost any technical question I may have on Java via Google.
Last but not least, I go to JavaOne and see 10,000 people that talk and walk
just like me.
The other reason that I ponder this question is that the power of Java is a
perfect fit for the areas where websites may need more than markups or
scripting, such as middleware logic. PHP and Ruby etc ... (more)

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
