Empowering the Enterprise to Take Full Advantage of Everything Azure The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating to the cloud is a simple affair - just call up a cloud provider and your wishes come true. The reality is quite different, however, as enterprises struggle with a wide variety of migration issues, from security to overtaxed IT teams and everything in-between. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Collin Steele, ... (more)

[session] @Azure Containers | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker #Kubernetes

Container Development on Azure Made Easy with Helm and Draft Microsoft Azure Container Services can be used for container deployment in a variety of ways including support for Orchestrators like Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and Mesos. However, the abstraction for app development that support application self-healing, scaling and so on may not be at the right level. Helm and Draft makes this a lot easier. In this primarily demo-driven session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Raghavan "Rags" Srinivas, a Cloud Solutions Architect/Evangelist at Microsoft, will cover Docker Swarm and Kubernetes deployments on Azure with some simple examples. He will look at Helm and Draft and how they can simplify app development significantly, like app scaling, rollback, etc. Helm is a tool that streamlines installing and managing Kubernetes applications, like the apt/yum/homebrew for K...

Cloud People: A Who's Who of Cloud Computing

Behind every cloud service or cloud-based solution, there are real people... A robust ecosystem of solutions providers has emerged around cloud computing. But who are the CEOs & CTOs behind those providers, who are the internal and external entrepreneurs driving companies involved in the Cloud, who are the leading engineers, developers, analysts, researchers, marketing professionals, authors...who, in short, are the people behind the cloud? This list will be updated weekly between now and November 4-7, 2013, when 13th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo Silicon Valley opens its doors in the Santa Clara Convention Center, in the heart of California's Silicon Valley.

Cloud Computing and Windows Azure

Nikhil Kothari's Blog Windows Azure took center stage at PDC last week during the keynote (watch here). The cloud computing space is now really heating up with competing platform plays from Google’s AppEngine and Amazon’s recent EC2 announcements. In some sense this is perhaps the re-birth of Windows as a platform that enables developers and the ecosystem to build on a whole new set of capabilities and scale for the Software+Services world, in much the same way as Windows fueled the desktop software industry in the past "era". The really compelling thing about this particular development platform especially combined with other technologies such as Mesh, SQL and Silverlight is that you’re likely already familiar with it - if you’ve been developing ASP.NET and .NET applications using Visual Studio, either on the desktop or your own servers or hosted servers, you’re alr...

Did Google's Eric Schmidt Coin "Cloud Computing"?

John Willis's Blog Much like “Web 2.0″, cloud computing was a collection of related concepts that people recognized, but didn’t really have a good descriptor for, a definition in search of a term, you could say. When Google CEO Eric Schmidt  used it in 2006 to describe their own stuff and then Amazon included the word “cloud” in EC2 when it was launched a few weeks later (August 24), the term became mainstream. Chris Sears, one of Atlanta’s finer cloud enthusiasts has earned some battle scars on the forums discussing the topic of “Cloud Computing”.   I remember him once telling me that he had done some research on the original sighting of the phrase “Cloud Computing”.  So this afternoon when I posted a tweet asking Who Coined The Phrase Cloud Computing? he sent the following response: "As for the origin of the term “cloud computing”, there are a few possibilities…...

The Cloud Computing Kettle Heats Right Up

4th International Cloud Expo Photo Album on Ulitzer The past month has seen an unprecedented concentration of Cloud-related articles, events, tweets, and - above all - product launches, partnership announcements and M&A moves. So is Cloud Computing, after three years, finally coming to the boil? Here, by way of allowing you to judge for yourself, SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Journal brings you a timeline of the trajectory of the Cloud so far. NOVEMBER 13, 2006 Jeff Bezos' Risky Bet - BusinessWeek publishes a cover article on Amazon's "Elastic Compute Cloud" (EC2) - a totally new on-demand, pay-as-you-go storage and computing service launched earlier that year, in August 2006. [From the article: "Bezos wants Amazon to run your business, at least the messy technical and logistical parts of it, using those same technologies and operations that power his $10 billion online ...

Microsoft Packages Up Azure

Now you too can have a standardized, turnkey Azure cloud of your very own. Microsoft announced Monday that it's boxing the thing up as a server appliance so that companies and government agencies touchy about where their data is can have private Azure clouds, and service providers can set up public Azure clouds. It will also be the basis of hybrid Azure clouds. HP, Dell and Fujitsu have thrown in with this idea and will be peddling the things as well as running their own Azure clouds. eBay is one of the first enterprise takers and means to have an internal Azure cloud up and running new applications in two of its data centers this year, expanding to other uses later. The vendors mean to sell versions of Azure with their own particular hardware although they're together kind of vague about what they will look like, how many servers each Azure instance will run, or wha...
