Pulling devops and multicloud together

Pulling devops and multicloud together

Multicloud is more than just additional deployment platforms. Making devops work effectively with multicloud is trickier than many people think.

Moving cloud resources to an ‘edge cloud center’ near you

Moving cloud resources to an ‘edge cloud center’ near you

Most points of presence are in urban areas, but a more distributed workforce relocating into rural regions has sparked the rise of smaller cloud centers that provide local processing.

3 multicloud architecture mistakes

3 multicloud architecture mistakes

Lots of enterprises think their cloud architecture is optimized, but most are way off their objective. Here are three ways it may be falling short.

Our cloud complexity bias may be hurting business

Our cloud complexity bias may be hurting business

Most cloud architects favor the more complex solution over the simpler one. Let’s consider why and look for a better way.

Are industry clouds an opportunity or a distraction?

Are industry clouds an opportunity or a distraction?

The notion of industry-specific clouds continues to evolve. Enterprises must decide if their specific benefits are worth the wait.

The cloud attack you didn’t see coming

The cloud attack you didn’t see coming

If stealth hacking hasn’t already come to cloud computing, it will shortly. Protect yourself by knowing your responsibilities and using effective tools.

The pandemic-driven rush to cloud is compromising security

COVID-19 has been a boon for cloud computing. However, the haste to move to cloud is causing some enterprises to neglect security. Here’s what you need to look out for.

How to pick cloud dev tools and infrastructure

How to pick cloud dev tools and infrastructure

We’re becoming dependent on more dev tools and technology to complete cloud migration or development projects. Let’s reduce the risk of choosing the wrong ones and avoid failure.

Why loosely coupled state in public clouds is better

Why loosely coupled state in public clouds is better

We’ve been keeping track of state from within applications for years, but new options in the public cloud can save money and time.

The cloud is green. Let's get on with migration

The cloud is green. Let's get on with migration

A new study proves what I’ve been saying for years: The use of cloud computing does more for the planet than every enterprise having its own data center.

Has the cloud been good for open source?

Has the cloud been good for open source?

We're 10 years into the cloud movement, so it's a good time to consider what the cloud has done for—or to—the open source movement.

Multicloud architecture decomposition simplified

Multicloud architecture decomposition simplified

Underoptimized architecture is costly and inefficient. It's worth taking some extra time to decompose your proposed solution to avoid trouble down the road.
