Migrating Big Data Analytics into the Cloud
Just how strong is the movement of big data analytics to the cloud? This report, based on a survey by O'Reilly data analyst John King, reveals that the desire among corporations to adopt big data-as-a-service is gaining momentum-and that many organizations with big data cloud experience are likely to expand their use. King's recent survey of IT ...
5 Unsung Tools of DevOps
To quote Arthur Conan Doyle, "It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important." While I usually associate that quote with the toppings I want on my sundae, it rings true for the holistic view of DevOps. Configuration Management is critical, and you should have a system in place to handle the b...
