A new report from EMA, a leading IT and data management research group, found that roughly 75 percent of network managers polled think their network performance monitoring (NPM) tools are “insufficient” when it comes to the public cloud. Barely a quarter of those polled believe the tools they currently use fully address their monitoring needs where cloud monitoring is concerned,...

Doing a Cloud Computing Reality Check
by Joe Michalowski on

For at least the last couple of years, IT has been pressured to put everything into the cloud. Whether it’s new startup operating entirely in the cloud or a large, established enterprise trying to migrate, cloud computing has been positioned as the obvious evolution of IT. Everywhere you turned, someone was calling for the death of on-premises infrastructure. While hybrid...

by Christine Cignoli on

As predicted, it’s prediction time for 2018! The year ahead will bring more technology advancements, and also advancements for the people using that technology as they figure out what will work best for their users. Cloud infrastructures come in a lot of different flavors these days, but they all need to perform well and consistently if they're going to succeed....

Long, long ago, when computer systems of the old glass house-encased Big Iron variety failed, the situation was often cryptically described as an “abend”—a word derived from an IBM error message meaning “ABnormal END.” While the abend was usually accompanied by other codes or messages, it was not much to go on. Data center operators had to do a lot...

Both vendors and cloud users continue to push cloud adoption strategy ever further. This week in Building More Data Centers, Google Cloud Platform announced its third availability zone in its Oregon region.

Cloud Adoption Is Not One-Size-Fits-All
by Christine Cignoli on

It’s always nice to hear the stories about a company’s entire IT infrastructure journey, and what may have changed along the way. These stories of shifting cloud adoption trends and plans are useful for anyone on a similar IT path. For the state of Kansas, private cloud initially seemed like the best fit. Costs quickly grew, though, from an estimated...

Balance Cloud and On-Premises Workloads Carefully
by Christine Cignoli on

Here’s another cloud adoption survey to add to your market research data, this one conducted late last year by Intel Security. Some new and interesting data points in here are on software-defined data centers: 73% of enterprises surveyed are moving to that model within two years. And while hybrid cloud adoption is growing rapidly, almost half of respondents say they’re...

Is On-Premises Infrastructure Obsolete?
by Joe Michalowski on

Have you ever had the feeling of Silicon Valley envy? Think of a company like Airbnb experiencing exponential growth by making the most of AWS cloud computing. It would be nice if we could all just leave our legacy-laden on-premises data centers behind and go all-in on the cloud. Traditional businesses are moving more and more workloads to the cloud,...

Cloud Management Tools Still Elusive
by Christine Cignoli on

Google’s Cloud team this week discussed multicloud integration with their own platform and AWS using Google Cloud Endpoints and AWS’ Lambda. The Cloud Endpoints let you develop open APIs, and you can then call those APIs up from Lambda. This may be the way forward for businesses eager to get their multiple public cloud providers integrated. We’re interested in the...

Even for the most seasoned IT pros, the cloud is complicated. It can be difficult just to wrap your head around the many terms and acronyms that make up the cloud dictionary—not to mention actually mastering the technology. Unfortunately, complicated cloud terms are often combined to the point that their meanings are lost in a sea of conflicting opinions. Two...

What Should You Learn From the AWS S3 Outage
by Christine Cignoli on

So, what did we all take away from this week’s AWS outage? Depends who you ask. Plenty of us in IT think it was a good reminder to consider multicloud and hybrid cloud environments—basically, do not put all your cloud workload eggs in one AWS basket. The S3 storage outage affected about 150,000 websites hosted in Amazon’s US-EAST-1 region data...

For your weekly dose of industry numbers, let’s start with this: Just 1% of cloud survey respondents will use no cloud services at all in the next two years. That’s according to the Interop ITX/InformationWeek survey on the state of cloud computing. We’re curious how even that 1% is managing to avoid the rapid rise of SaaS apps and public...

Weekly Packet: Let the Robots Do the Work
by Christine Cignoli on

It’s the Friday before Labor Day weekend in the U.S., which is a day to specifically not labor at all. But here’s a fun fact: Labor Day was created not as a day of rest for workers but actually as a day to honor the contributions workers have made to the well-being of the U.S. So give yourself a pat...

This was a big one in the Wide World of Outages this week: Delta Airlines couldn’t get more than 1,500 planes off the ground because of a power outage in Atlanta. Well, that’s what initial reports said, but the Wall Street Journal went into the details about how some critical systems and equipment didn’t switch over to backups after power went...

Mo' Monitoring, Mo' Problems
by Christine Cignoli on

For someone who writes a lot about technology, I am still a Luddite of sorts (Pokemon Go? No thank you. I’ve lost enough of my actual possessions inside my house without adding imaginary floating orb things). So when I read that hybrid cloud spending is on the rise this year, I was surprised when I saw how many huge enterprises...
