 Tue, 19 Feb 2019 17:30:00 EST The Great Public Cloud Correction | @CloudEXPO @Hostway @ESayegh #Cloud #Infrastructure #Serverless #DataCenter
Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will become more and more prevalent. At the heart of this technology trend exists a custom solution to meet the needs and concerns of enterprise organizations, including compliance, security, and cost issues. The "new normal" of enterprise clients is a world of hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, and it is slowly changing the IT technology landscape. Better tools, better management, and easier adoption are emerging. For instance, such as AWS Outposts and Azure Stack. These are big-time, in-demand technologies in the enterprise space, and as these options evolve, we can expect that additional hybrid solutions and integrations will emerge from the market landscape.

 Sun, 17 Feb 2019 19:15:00 EST Hybrid Cloud and Serverless Case Studies | @KubeSUMMIT @Platform9Sys #Serverless #Containers #DevOps #Docker #Kubernetes
Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management. Serverless also simplifies Operations and reduces cost - as the Kubernetes container infrastructure required to run these applications is automatically spun up and scaled precisely with the workload, to optimally handle all runtime requests. Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serverless and Kubernetes reliably, at scale, also on on-premises and private cloud infrastructure. The ability to achieve the benefits of Serverless on existing infrastructure - and not having to rely solely on public clouds - has greatly increased the adoption of Serverless across industries, including financial services, IoT, retail, healthcare, and more. Serverless offers an incredible opportunity for business accelerate innovation and reduce operational costs - both for green field applications, as well as for established organizations with legacy applications and technical debt.
