As the new operational model of choice, cloud is changing how organizations work. It enables you to create new technologies, new applications, and new delivery models. It can help you work smarter and bring products to market faster. And eventually, your organization will rely on the cloud to run its entire operation.
Last month, we hosted a conversation around leveraging Oracle MiniCluster’s simplicity, out-of-the-box performance and reliability to help enterprises adopt the same type of DevOps model that agile startups have adopted.
Your business demands the cloud for speed and agility. But is your database platform ready? Oracle can put you on the right path to a private cloud with Oracle Database Appliance.
These days, it seems like every tech magazine, vendor, and IT organization are relentlessly focused on cloud computing. It’s easy to get impatient with what may seem like a lot of hype, but there really is a good reason for all the excitement.
A challenge for any cloud installation is the constant tradeoff of availability versus security. In general, the more fluid your cloud system (i.e., making virtualized resources available on demand more quickly and easily), the more your system becomes open to certain cyberattacks. This tradeoff is perhaps most acute during active virtual machine (VM) migration, when a VM is moved from one physical host to another transparently, without disruption of the VM’s operations. Live virtual machine migration is a crucial operation in the day-to-day management of modern cloud environment.
Starting with Solaris 11, OS development and update will follow a continuous delivery model, whih means the next few years will see lots of incremental improvements within 11.x instead of a major release like Solaris 12.
It’s also very good to see that extended support is planned for the next 25 years or so:
Cloud is fast becoming the operational model of choice and it’s transforming both business and IT. It enables people to create new technologies, new applications, and new delivery models. As a result, organizations are becoming more responsive, agile, and innovative.
These days, no topic commands more attention in boardrooms and on the front lines of business than cybersecurity. The frequency and intensity of attacks continues to grow. According to a report from The Economist Intelligence Unit and Oracle, The C-Suite, the Board and Cyber-Defense, organizations have witnessed a 42 percent increase in hacking, a 39 percent spike in malware and a 23 percent rise in financial theft over the past two years. Globally, cyber-crime is expected to reach $2 trillion by 2019.
