Adobe, Anthem, EBay, JP Morgan Chase, Home Depot, Sony, Target household names that have all had data breaches due to Cyberattacks. These cyber-attacks appear to be focused on accessing personal customer data that could be used for financial scams. According to the APT1 Report from Mandiant, hundreds of terabytes of data from at least 141 organizations has also been stolen in a cyber-espionage effort from individuals in China. Regardless if it’s customer data or intellectual property, this data should not be leaving these corporations.

Understand the role of infrastructure as code in DevOps

Article | February 28, 2020

Infrastructure as code plays a prominent role in enterprise DevOps shops. Use this chapter excerpt to understand why -- and to learn the basics of some common IaC tools. As technology evolves at a faster and faster pace, collaboration between teams, such as development and IT operations, becomes increasingly important to satisfy end user and business demands. DevOps aims to foster that collaboration, as well as improve application deployment times and quality. To succeed with DevOps, however, IT teams must be open to change. "DevOps is a culture different from traditional corporate cultures and requires a change in mindset, processes, and tools," writes Mikael Krief in the book Learning DevOps: The complete guide to accelerate collaboration with Jenkins, Kubernetes, Terraform and Azure DevOps.

Article | February 28, 2020

We, the Team Sherlock @ Nutanix, wrapped up year 2019 with amazing line up of platform features for developers and infrastructure admnistrators.

Infrastructure as code vs. platform as code

Article | February 28, 2020

With infrastructure as code (IaC), you write declarative instructions about compute, storage and network requirements for the infra and execute it. How does this compare to platform as code (PaC) and what did these two concepts develop in response to? In its simplest form, the tech stack of any application has three layers — the infra layer containing bare metal instances, virtual machines, networking, firewall, security etc.; the platform layer with the OS, runtime environment, development tools etc.; and the application layer which, of course, contains your application code and data. A typical operations team works on the provisioning, monitoring and management of the infra and platform layers, in addition to enabling the deployment of code.

ARE COMPANIES INVESTING TOO MUCH IN DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE?

Article | February 28, 2020

Data science and big data analytics have become the new must-haves for businesses across many industries. Gone are the days when algorithm development and large-scale data mining were confined to Silicon Valley. In the modern, tech-savvy age, it’s almost an afterthought that banks, insurance brokerages, healthcare entities, and other non-tech-sector companies seek to be “the next Apple/Google/Amazon” or whatever tech behemoth completes the C-suite’s bromide. This is true not just in word, but in deed.
