Is cloud migration iterative or waterfall? - 14時間前  InfoWorld

Cloud migration projects have two dimensions.First, they are short-term sprints where a project team migrates a handful of application workloads and data stores to a single or multicloud. They act independently, with little architectural oversite or governance, and last between two to six months. [ Also on InfoWorld: Sorry, Linux. Kubernetes is now the OS that matters ] Second, is the longer-term architecture including security, governance, management, and monitoring. This may be directed by a cloud business office, the office of the CTO, or a master cloud architect. This set of processes goes...more

3 cloud security 'hacks' to consider today - 4日前  InfoWorld

Are you the cloud security person, or cloudsec/cloudops, as it’s often called? The person who controls the cloud deployment, including all security such as IAM (identity and access management), encryption services, and application and user authentication? I have some observations about cloud security to share.First, enterprises typically don’t have a good-fitting security solution. For most of the security solutions I’ve seen in the cloud, it appears that companies have turned on native public cloud security, done some iterations, and called it a day.Second, security isn’t seen as something to...more

Simplifying data management in the cloud - 7日前  InfoWorld

Let’s face it. We’re painting ourselves into a corner given the number of special-purpose, cloud-native databases we’re placing into production. This without regard to how we should be using those databases in ways that allow for easy access and understanding of data. Today, they are typically coupled to applications, and have a tactical and not a strategic purpose.      This is not the purpose of data, and not the promise of the cloud. Keep in mind that data in the cloud was built up in our minds to make data more accessible and centralized. Finally, we would be able to do “wonderful things w...more

Netflix open sources data science management tool - 4日前  InfoWorld

Netflix has open sourced Metaflow, an internally developed tool for building and managing Python-based data science projects. Metaflow addresses the entire data science workflow, from prototype to model deployment, and provides built-in integrations to AWS cloud services. Machine learning and data science projects need mechanisms to track the development of the code, data, and models. Doing all of that manually is error-prone, and tools for source code management, like Git, aren’t well-suited to all of these tasks.[ Also on InfoWorld: AI, machine learning, and deep learning: Everything you nee...more
