Cloud Expo Early Bird Savings A robust ecosystem of solutions providers is emerging around cloud computing. Here, SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Journal expands its list of most active players in the fast-emerging Cloud Ecosystem, from the 'mere' 100 we identified back in January of this year, to half as many again - testimony, if any further were needed, to the fierce and continuing growth of the "Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing. Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web sites cited. As ever we encourage software engineers, developers, IT operations managers, and new/growing companies in every case to "suck it and see" by downloading or otherwise sampling the offering in question for themselves. (Omissions to this Top 150 list sh... (more)

Oracle Fusion Applications: Respect and Suspect

There is an old saying: Respect and Suspect. When someone declare, write or say something, do not decry or ignore him - respect him.  It may turn out that the information he provides is valuable or useful. On the other hand, Suspect and check whether what was manifested is true, half true or false. This attitude is the corn stone of Scientific Research. I am not a Scientist, but during few decades in IT, I found Respect and Suspect as very useful approach  as well as in my hobby playing Bridge (respect and suspect your opponents bids and play). The old saying came to my mind, while reading good news: Oracle Fusion Applications was released for use by Early Adopters after five years of development. The article was published by Mark Fontecchio in PeopleSoft Planet site. The following bullets summarize the article: 1.   Oracle Fusion Applications is ready but are the c... (more)

Which Cloud Services Providers Are Gaining Mind Share?

Cloud Computing on Ulitzer There is little doubt that cloud computing is big news, but who is gaining your mind share?  Amazon, NetSuite, and Salesforce.com, have been in the news recently with a number of announcements.  So many that I've been attempting to track them by creating specific journals for each. Our experiences are likely to be different, and barring actual surveys and research, is subjective and based largely on our own impressions and perceptions of which companies are in the news or making news in this segment. There are several lists that are excellent points of reference - The Top 150 Players in Cloud Computing, 85 Cloud Computing Vendors Shaping the Emerging Cloud, and The VAR Guy's SaaS 20 Index. Large technology companies like AT&T, EMC / VMware, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Unisys, and others that come to mind have not been included below in the top 20... (more)

The Cloud Goes Postal

The functionality of the US Post Office is now available on a Cloud-based delivery model, courtesy of NetSuite. Check out the story by Maureen O'Gara at sys-con. The USPS services seem to be deployed as a SaaS model, accessed through a browser. As yet there do not seem to be managed PaaS APIs available (or are there?) which can be pulled into other applications, for example iPhone apps. Of course, right now it's easy to co-opt the Web interface to USPS.com in order to programmatically query Post Office shipping times over HTTP. Although, I can just imagine REST zealots arguing that it should really be termed the "GET Office" in that case [really lame joke, I know :-) ]. ... (more)

20 Lines or Less: Selective SSL, Port Stripping and Headers

What could you do with your code in 20 Lines or Less? That's the question I ask (almost) every week for the devcentral community, and every week I go looking to find cool new examples that show just how flexible and powerful iRules can be without getting in over your head. With the onslaught of work required to get DC5 up and running it’s been a while since I’ve offered some cool iRule goodness to the community from the community.  There have been plenty of examples cruising through the forums, that’s for sure, I just haven’t had the time to comb through all of them or write them up.  Now that I can again see the light of day, allow me to share a some good ones with you.   Disabling SSL to one backend pool We’ve looked at ways to selectively disable SSL before, but this example had an interesting twist that I thought was…well…interesting.  The idea here is to sele...

Operating Profitable 3G and 4G Networks

I sat on a panel at the RCR Local Boston event earlier this month. I thought the panel and audience interaction were quite stimulating and informative. The informal networking was also fruitful. I recommend attending an RCR Local event in your area, if you have the opportunity. Wanting to sound somewhat intelligible, I had prepared in advance some answers to our panel’s seed questions, some of which I’m converting into a blog entry here for comment and feedback. Here are the operator business model transformation set of questions. I’ll post a 2nd blog with the network transformation oriented questions What are some of the biggest challenges facing carriers today as they look to deploy 3G and 4G networks? Operator Profitability – as achieved through the duality of Optimization and Monetization, those complementary forces at play in Mobile broadband networks. A part... (more)
