Video: Microsoft gains protected-level cloud classification from ASDAt Red Hat Summit in San Francisco, Red Hat and Microsoft announced they were bringing Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat's Kubernetes container orchestration platform, to Microsoft's Azure, Microsoft's public cloud. The two software powers proclaimed that was the first jointly managed OpenShift offering on the public cloud.This is a fully managed service. You need not learn how to crack the whip over containers with Kubernetes. Red Hat and Microsoft will take care of that for you.Read also: From Linux to cloud, why Red Hat matters for every enterpriseCompanies are turning to containerized applications and Kubernetes to help address customer, competitive, and market demands at a rapid rate. Indeed, Gartner predicts that container use in the enterprise will jump from 20 percent now to over 50 percent of global organizations by 2020. That's great, but there's nothing like enough Docker and Kubernetes experts to manage … [Read more...] about Red Hat and Microsoft bring OpenShift to Azure

Credit: StratioA few weeks back, my Big on Data bro George Anadiotis provided the deep dive on why graph platforms may become the next database in your portfolio, regardless of whether you know what they are. At its simplest, graph databases excel in representing the many-to-many relationships that are difficult, if not impossible, to model in relational and NoSQL databases.What makes the case for graph databases so compelling is that they model the real world the way it actually exists. Outside of transaction systems, people tend to be interconnected in multiple social tribes that may or may not be interlocking. Product catalogs are typically composed of families of SKUs that mix and match different grab bags of features. Cyber threats often arise from a multitude of players that may or may not be interrelated, with characteristics that can often betray lineage. You could model these in a relational database, if you don't mind databases with hundreds of tables (or more) and queries … [Read more...] about Looking under the hood at Amazon Neptune
NoSQL databases provide high operational speed and increased flexibility for software developers and other users when compared to traditional tabular (or SQL) databases.The data structures used by NoSQL databases—key-value, wide column, graph, or document—differ from those used by relational databases. As a result, NoSQL databases. NoSQL databases can be scaled across thousands of servers, though sometimes with loss of data consistency. But what makes NoSQL databases especially relevant today is that they are particularly well suited for working with large sets of distributed data, which makes them a good choice for big data and analytics projects.How to choose a NoSQL database: Key factorsWith more than two dozen open source and commercial NoSQL databases in the market, how do you choose the right product or cloud service?One vital factor is to know the purpose to which you want to put the data, says Carl Olofson, an IDC research vice president.NoSQL databases vary in … [Read more...] about How to choose the right NoSQL database
Serverless computing, a concept that has started gaining traction in the last two years, is all about shifting focus to applications that require no infrastructure management and consume resources only for the seconds for which they are active. In the public cloud space, serverless usually translates to solutions where the provider dynamically manages the allocation of server resources based on workload requirements. AWS Lambda led the way, with Microsoft Azure Functions (and others) quickly catching up. Pricing for serverless frameworks is generally based on the actual amount of resources consumed by the application, instead of prepurchased capacity. As these serverless solutions for stateless applications gain popularity and adoption in next-generation software architectures, where does that leave the relational database? Still a crucial component for many, if not most, applications.For the past several years, you have had several robust and well-proven models to choose from … [Read more...] about Is serverless computing a game-changer for the relational database market?
