The Benefits of Creating Big Data Lakes in the Cloud

Data lakes are centralized repositories that are used to store, process, and secure large amounts of data. Data lakes can handle structured, semistructured, and unstructured data in its native format. They are becoming increasingly important to data-driven businesses looking to maximize the value of big data and enterprise information resources.


Financial Services Are Finding a Safe Home in the Cloud

Banks and other financial institutions demand a high degree of security, compliance, and performance to protect their information technology (IT) resources. In many cases, the demand for security has been addressed with in-house legacy systems relying on mainframe computing power. But the growth of e-commerce and cryptocurrencies has led some financial services decision-makers to look for alternative solutions.


Amazon Wins the Job as the PGA Tour's New Caddy

The PGA Tour is committed to enhancing the experience of its fans via a new partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). They are introducing new ways to provide PGA Tour content to their fanbase who have been restricted from attending tournaments in person due to COVID-19 safety and health protocols. These innovative options offer the Tour’s streaming audience a customizable experience that will complement the eventual return of on-course fans. 


IoT to Cloud - Connectivity is Essential

IoT is one of the groundbreaking technologies that are expected to advance and continue to transform the business landscape and human’s daily life this decade. While this technology is expected to change many aspects of our lives on its own, cloud computing will also play a critical role in IoT advancement. Cloud connectivity is an integral part of the internet of things (IoT) projects because it acts as a backbone for this transformation.  As the number of IoT applications continues to rise, the cloud will allow the applications to store data generated regardless of the volumes or variety.


The Best Ways to Control Cloud Sprawl

Server sprawl is a problem that can plague any large or complex computing environment. The issue can start small with a developer standing up a test instance of a database that gets forgotten after a few weeks or months. In addition to the monetary expense of the licensing necessary to run the instance, it probably has been added to backup or monitoring schedules. This leads to unnecessary work that wastes storage space and computing cycles. It also adds pointless complexity to the task of managing the environment efficiently.


Your Cloud Efforts May Hit a Few Snags

Everywhere you go these days, you are likely to meet people talking about “the cloud.” This term seems to be more widely used in corporate settings now more than ever. Maybe it is all because of its impact on organizations and the potential to change the business environment. As you might have heard or read, AI provides better storage, enhances data security, flexibility, and collaboration, and improves workflows for all organizations, both small and large. This is why you should consider implementing cloud in your company regardless of the size.


Security in the Cloud is Still Evolving

In the age of cloud computing, bad actors can access many targets than ever. They can also access many tools that they can use in their activities more than ever before. As such, security in this age is a priority. Cloud Security Report 2020 indicates that the security challenges encountered in the cloud include misconfiguration, unauthorized access, insecure interfaces and account hijacking. The attacks on cloud platforms vary based on different aspects from mundane to new sophisticated attacks that are conducted using powerful tools.


How to Protect Your Cloud Resources From Hackers

The recent discovery of the extensive Solar Winds hacking incident once again focused attention on the difficulty of securing enterprise data resources in the cloud. Thousands of customers had their networks breached by malware hidden in monitoring software. It appears that the cyberattack was perpetrated by a coordinated team of Russian hackers and the full extent of the intrusion will not be known for many months. Though this is one of the most egregious recent examples of a successful hack, it is certainly not the only one.


Mistakes to Avoid When Migrating to the Cloud

Migrating computing environments to the cloud offers organizations many benefits if done correctly. Companies can take advantage of the scalability and flexibility offered by cloud providers which can often lead to cost savings as resources are used more efficiently. For many small and mid-size enterprises, the cloud offers the only way to gain access to cutting-edge technology and high-performance computing solutions. Software as a service (SaaS) enables the introduction of new applications into the environment without the overhead of in-house support. 


Clouds Make '-as-a-Service' Reality

Although there have been fears about issues such as reliability and security, companies are increasingly moving their applications and services to the cloud. This migration is going to change organizations in big ways. Despite the concept of cloud computing being there since 60’s it was not widely known by consumers until decades later. With the launch of Amazon Web Services (AWS) by Amazon in 2006 and other cloud solutions that followed, cloud computing became a household name. Microsoft, Google, and Apple among others are today some of the famous cloud service providers in the world. These companies offer different cloud experiences such as storage, computing space, and other services that are usually metered. They have consequently changed how businesses are conducted and lifestyles in general. Here are some ways in which cloud computing is making “as a service” a reality:
