Cloud DBaaS is the future of database management for the Enterprise

January 31, 2020 | 183 views

With on-premise database infrastructure and legacy systems slowly fading; agile, scalable, cost effective database management on the Cloud is taking over. This is because organisations now understand that to adopt to the innovations in database management system (DBMS) they need to move to the Cloud. DBMS on Cloud offers flexible pricing models, no capital expense, better operating expense leveraging the pay-as-you-go model. So, the popularity of Database as a Service is increasing. According to market studies by 2021, Cloud database management system (DBMS) revenue will account for 50% of total DBMS market revenue. By 2023, 75% of all databases will be on a Cloud platform. These trends will have a major impact on the DBMS vendor landscape.

A new era of automation with Cisco ACI and the Citrix ADC Manager app

Article | August 8, 2022

Since it was first available, Citrix has worked with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) to integrate Citrix ADC with the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC). As a valued technology partner, Citrix has a device package — a software module — that enables users to configure the Citrix ADC directly from a Cisco APIC. This setup has run in many customer production environments over the years. Let’s consider one of those customers — Jim. He was the first to deploy the integrated solution in his data center. The solution gave him the automation he needed and a single view to configure, deploy, and manage applications. However, his application admins preferred to use the Citrix ADC user interface to manage L4-L7 services.

We Need to Talk About ‘Cloud Neutrality’

Article | August 8, 2022

We spent a lot of years talking about net neutrality the idea that the companies that provide access to the internet shouldn’t unfairly block, slow down, or otherwise interfere with traffic even if that traffic competes with their services. But there’s an even bigger issue brewing, and it’s time to start talking about it: cloud neutrality. “While its name sounds soft and fluffy,” Microsoft president and general counsel Brad Smith and coauthor Carol Ann Browne write in their recent book, Tools and Weapons: The Promise and the Peril of the Digital Age, “in truth the cloud is a fortress.” Their introduction describes the modern marvel of the data center: a 2 million-square-foot, climate-controlled facility made up of colossal electrical generators, diesel fuel tanks, battery arrays, and bulletproof doors

Why enterprises are going all-in on hyperscale

Article | February 10, 2020

Cloud computing continues to dominate the technology space, with cloud migration yielding a rain of opportunities and benefits. To date, achieving massive scale in computing power and data storage is a priority for organizations looking to mature in digital transformation. Hyperscale infrastructure is designed exclusively for that purpose, and it offers increasingly relevant features such as high levels of performance and high tolerance and room for error as well as redundancy. A recent report showed enterprises are leaning towards hyperscalers for cloud services as compared to second-tier providers.
