Over at The Nation, Nophakhun Limsamarnphun writes that EMC understands the enormity of endless data and what can and will be done with it.
To take advantage of this emerging trend, Joe Tucci, chairman and CEO of EMC whose revenues topped US$21.7 billion last year, told the EMC World 2013 conference in Las Vegas early this month that it’s necessary for EMC to deliver efficiency, control, choice and agility to its customers. The world is entering a new era of so-called third-generation IT platform that can support billions of mobile device users, cloud computers, and social media, according to Tucci.
Over at InfoWorld, David Linthicum writes that in order for enterprises to make the transition to a private cloud they must use the proper technologies to truly take advantage of the move.
What’s missing is the deep planning needed to understand the requirements of the applications and data that will reside on a cloud, public or private. Moreover, we aren’t keeping an open mind when looking at the right platform for the job — again, whether public or private.
The need for business application-layer security remains universal, and largely unanswered by IaaS and Cloud vendors,” said CohesiveFT CEO Patrick Kerpan. ”By combining VNS3 Overlay SDN with IaaS provider infrastructure security features, our customers are able to create and control a multidimensional security solution.”
Over at TechCrunch, Josh Constine reports that @WalmartLabs has acquired OneOps to increase its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings. The retail giant also procured social software developers Tasty Labs in a related move.
OneOps developed a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) capability that Walmart explains will enable it to “significantly accelerate” its PaaS and Private Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) strategies. The company offered developer tools built from the ground up for those who host their applications on cloud services like Amazon Web Services, for example, as well as Rackspace and HP Cloud. Developers could publish to any cloud and seamlessly port their apps elsewhere as needed, eliminating lock-in.

Over at Talkin Cloud, Chris Talbot reports that the business analytics market based in the cloud will see a significant increase over the next few years.
According to a new report from MarketandMarkets, the cloud analytics market and its related sub-markets will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25.8 percent over the next five years. By 2018, that means the overall cloud business analytics market will total $16.52 billion. That’s a huge number no matter how you look at it, but compared to today’s market value of $5.25 billion, it’s clear the industry is expecting a spectacular increase.
Matt Petronzio at Mashable interviews Adrian Cockcroft about his role in the massive cloud deployment that Netflix utilizes.
My job is to have an overall view of the components and patterns that Netflix uses to build its streaming service in the cloud. When I see a gap or have an idea for something we need to build, my job is to set the context around that idea for the engineers, then get out of their way and let them figure out the details. I also document and explain the architecture by running internal training classes and external presentations at conferences. I have had most input on the availability and disaster recovery mechanisms built into the architecture.
David F. Carr atInformation Weekcovers the keynote panel at Interop and their conversation regarding the future of SDN and network admin.
The point of SDN is to make networks easy to configure and reconfigure in software rather than hardware, with many more networking functions migrating from being embedded capabilities of a network appliance to being defined in software. Network systems are migrating incrementally in that direction as networks follow the same path toward virtualization as servers and storage, he said. Ultimately, the goal is to provide every data center with the flexibility associated with cloud computing.
