Multi-Cloud vs Hybrid Cloud: What’s the Difference? show art Multi-Cloud vs Hybrid Cloud: What’s the Difference?

Enterprise Initiatives

Our guest on the podcast this week is , Co-Founder & CEO at  We discuss the difference between hybrid cloud and multi-cloud. Hybrid is anything that’s not just one cloud provider, which includes multi-cloud. Multi-cloud is a strategy where some workloads are running on one cloud, some on another. One trend we see is that big enterprises are splitting workloads more and more between at least two major public clouds for a multi-cloud strategy. According to Gartner, 70% of enterprises will be implementing a multi-cloud strategy by 2019. Some do it because they are mandated by...

Enterprise Initiatives

Our guest on the podcast this week is , President and COO at  We discuss the many definitions floating around for . Some call it fog computing or MEC (mobile edge computing). It is simple. It is a perspective that as the shift goes from wireless networks and person-to-person interaction to machine-to-machine interaction, underlying architectures must change along with that shift. For things like IoT and distributed data, they require reliability and speed at the source. Increased embeddedness from IoT to healthcare, finance to automotives requires lower latency and need...

Kubernetes Wins at Orchestration Engines, but Still Needs Backup show art Kubernetes Wins at Orchestration Engines, but Still Needs Backup

Enterprise Initiatives

Our guest on the podcast this week is , Co-Founder and VP, Sales at  We discuss how Kubernetes has won the war as a leader in orchestration. However, it is still not easy to use or maintain. We explore what organizations need to consider to build operational efficiencies around the technology. Kubernetes, Docker, and containers are very different from something like VMware and Amazon in terms of adoption. When new technology comes into an organization, they usually would quickly become an IT-led project. With containers, they are more like Puppet, Chef, and Ansible. They pop up...

Enterprise Initiatives

Our guest on the podcast this week is , Director of Product Strategy at  Brian discusses a small bank in Ohio and how they have a business use-case for Kubernetes. Because Kubernetes was built to manage Google-sized technology, it is surprising that there is a reason to apply it to a small brick and mortar bank just starting with web and mobile. What they noticed in the switch is that because customers get paid on Fridays and are more likely to check if they got paid on their personal mobile device, as soon as they launched mobile their Friday traffic soared. For just one fifth of...

Enterprise Initiatives

We discuss RightScale’s report analyzing trends in the cloud. RightScale helps customers adopt cloud by helping them with a cloud management and optimization. This is the sixth year of the report so we can start to see trends over time now and there were a few interesting takeaways this year. In the report, RightScale asks two big questions for enterprises. First is about cloud strategy and what their intention is on cloud – to use private, public, or combinations of those. Second, they are asked about what they use today for private or public clouds. From a strategy point of view,...

Enterprise Initiatives

Our guest on the podcast this week is , Chief Strategic Architect at  We discuss Docker adoption, DevOps, and security for a company as big as ADP with over 630,000 customers, 35 million users in 100 countries, and 55 million stored social security numbers. We see how DevOps processes and security is never a completed initiative and can always be improved. We also see how DevOps at ADP varies significantly across projects and seems to mold to the team using it.

Last, we talk about the pros and cons of going all in on one vendor.

Our guest on the podcast this week is Michael Heflin, CEO at Sensuron. We discuss Sensuron’s research on fiber optic sensing, which is sure to change the game for internet of things in multiple industries from aerospace to energy to medicine. These sensors may be expensive now, but in less than ten years they are predicted to be offered at a consumer-level price. Small data, or data directly from sensors, is becoming increasingly important as internet of things spreads more widely.
