Cloud Computing Stats Tell a Lot

Cloud computing has significantly altered many things in our lives. It has changed the way we do things, the leading being how we do business and conduct different activities in our lives. Unlike a decade ago when this technology was just a buzzword in IT, it has made its way into several industries bringing substantial change wherever it has been adopted. Back then, there was little knowledge about this emerging technology, so people asked questions about what it is and the changes it is likely to bring. Although many of these questions have been answered, many others still emerge. Here are some key cloud computing stats that might help.


AWS Releases The Open Source Library AutoGluon For AI Development

Amazon recently released AutoGlun, the open source toolkit for automated machine learning. Developing machine learning applications can be very involved with essential multiple layers as a requirement. For example, developers must define the parameters for choices in construction of the AI model and spend considerable amounts of time with data set pre-processing. They also need to consider finding the best architecture design for their AI models. AWS has a considerable amount of tools to develop AI applications.  


Containers Are An Important Tool For Developers Deploying To The Cloud, But Look Out For These Vulnerabilities

Software containers have become increasingly popular. Many organizations have realized the benefits of containerization and how they are crucial for their business activities. Unfortunately, as it is the case of many technologies, security of these containers has been somehow neglected. This can be as a result of lack of understanding by security teams who fail to take note of these technologies and the issues that they bring with regard to security. To understand the areas that are most vulnerable, you must first understand how these containers operate.


How the Cloud Leverages Open-Source Solutions

Cloud providers make extensive use of open-source software and solutions in developing and minting their commercial offerings. There are differing opinions as to the benefits of this marriage as cloud computing evolves and becomes more enamored with open-source offerings. Both sides of the argument make compelling points.


Managing Your Cloud Computing Costs

It wasn’t long ago that organizations were scrambling to move to the cloud. Cloud adoption was a must and getting cloud services up and running was top priority. However, the biggest challenge today isn’t the adoption of the cloud, but the management of cloud expenses. Many teams and users of the cloud are often surprised when they see the size of their monthly spending. This is because the cost of cloud computing is so much different than on-premises data centers. On-premises data centers have a fixed capacity and costs, which leads to maximizing utilization. Cloud computing is charged per transaction and everyone involved needs to be vigilant in consuming as few resources as possible.


StackRox Updates Platform to Focus on Container Security

StackRox, a leading container and Kubernetes security organization, announced on January 23, 2019 the 2.4 release of its Container Security Platform. The new release allows businesses to quickly manage risks based on context and leverage Kubernetes for scalable policy enforcement. The recent enhancements focus on deployment-centric visibility, multi-factor risk profiling and network policy management.


Cloud Computing terminologies you should know and how they affect your decisions about deployment

Almost everyone who has a basic knowledge of computers and what they do, have also heard about the cloud. However, a lot of the terminologies used in cloud computing may appear strange to many.



 Heidi Benko, InforInfor has announced the GT Nexus Control Center, an AI-driven platform, that serves as an analytical tool and AI-assisted, decision-making cockpit. It was rolled out this week at the software company’s Inforum.
