  Serverless technology should not be applied to all application initiatives.  PM Kinetics offers cloud solutions that can improve your success. The term “serverless” is a bit of a misnomer.  It refers to a moment in time when computing resources are employed for the spin-up time of a few milliseconds, that execute cleanly, and that

Security in the New Data Center

August 31st, 2010

Information security in data centers has historically relied on perimeter firewalls, pattern matching “after the fact” with intrusion detection, and at the server level by installing host-based intrusion detection, identity enforcement, antivirus, and other software agents.  Internal LANs can be segmented and boundary controls implemented using the same firewall technology. Virtualization adds a layer of

SOA Rebranded as Cloud Computing Services

August 18th, 2010

Just have to love some marketing folks and analysts that jump to the latest buzz word and extol the differences, benefits, pitfalls, fear, uncertainty and doubt.   There have recently been some press releases concerning cloud computing concepts and technology that seems to have been lifted from previous Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) overviews from the same vendors. 

Cloud computing key risks

July 30th, 2010

For every positive benefit there is almost always a negative to compensate for rapid adoption based on wild enthusiasm.  Cloud computing has a number of key risks.  1) data privacy and governing privacy laws  2)  multi-cloud relationships and subcontractors are also an issue when using a cloud provider 3)  multi-tenancy on the same virtual server

Difference between computing in-house, normal IT outsourcing and cloud computing

July 28th, 2010

Cloud computing tends to be based on virtualization of servers and storage and software that supports many companies, simultaneously.  Cloud computing is the utilization of technology infrastructure to outsource a business process through what are shared virtualized infrastructures.  The maturity of the virtualized infrastructure may magnify the challenges for organizations in operating side-by-side with competitors

Cloud Computing Security Issues – nothing really new or different

Security compliance, addressed either by physical controls or logical controls, will still apply whether you operate on your premises or in a virtual environment.  Virtual environments just make this harder and when you rely upon a third party the phrase “trust but verify” is an apt response to ensure that this particular computing model does

Cloud Computing Comparison – value versus function

June 14th, 2010

Cloud Computing and its attendant services are not a fad that will fade anytime soon.  CIOs will be asked to examine how to use them and there will more direct pressure from CFOs and CEOs to bring down the cost of computing by using the cloud.  Trying to equate the cost of the in-house infrastructure

Virtualization: Management and Implementation

March 7th, 2007

Many organizations are embracing virtualization technologies (VMs) and are actively moving toward large-scale implementations. This trend is still early in its adoption cycle, and analysts predict that the total VMs deployed in the next 2-3 years will be orders of magnitude greater than what was done in 2006. IDC estimates that 500,000 VMs will be shipped
