Simplifying multi-cloud migration and operations with a LiveData platform
Oct 04, 2018
Migrating to - and operating - multi-cloud environments presents significant data challenges. Mark Bartlo and Niraj Jaiswal discuss industry perceptions and trends, a LiveData use case, and how enabling a LiveData environment can reduce risk, cut costs, and transform business capabilities.
DISCOtecher: Let’s start today’s conversation with typical assumptions about data movement to the cloud. What is one of the most common perceptions about achieving data consistency during data migrations to and between clouds?
Mark: I think people believe that existing technologies meet only a specific set...Continue reading
How to accelerate cloud adoption
Sep 28, 2018
In a new blog series focused on WANdisco Fusion and a LiveData capability, we explore LiveData use cases shared by subject matter experts. The first of this series focuses on cloud migration. While outage after outage grab international headlines, many enterprises feel blocked at executing their hybrid cloud and multi-cloud strategies because many IT teams don’t have the tools and resources to tackle the data accessibility and consistency challenges associated with cloud data movement. With both a WANdisco Fusion product and IT Architect perspective, we spoke with Tom Luckenbach, a WANdisco So...Continue reading
How LiveData Gives You the Freedom to Innovate
Sep 14, 2018
Newly established companies such as Uber and Airbnb exploit an advantage over their competition beyond the genesis of a good idea. They were born in the cloud, and enjoy the innate flexibility and scalability that pure cloud operations entail. These companies have never been constrained by infrastructure and technical debt, and they have been free to pull ahead, putting their data to work and leading the pack.
Of course, CIOs, CTOs and indeed CEOs of non-cloud companies fully understand the benefits of migrating data into the cloud, but cloud migration is perceived as complex, and can put bus...Continue reading
Are Old Lessons on Data Dependency Still Relevant?
Aug 01, 2018
The cloud has been incredibly effective at simplifying how applications are built and deployed by eliminating physical constraints. The vision of the software-defined datacenter has been fully realized. By turning the challenge of acquiring and provisioning hardware into a button press, the cloud has eliminated many barriers to new application deployment.
But the benefits that come with this ease of deploying and scaling systems also come with a cost. The “hidden gotcha” described by IDC’s Research Director, Phil Goodwin, refers precisely to a challenge that may not be accounted for by many en...Continue reading
What is a “Data First” Operating Model?
Jul 09, 2018
The new notion is that data defines an enterprise. What are the new operating models and paradigms that organizations face when their future relies entirely on digital assets? Peter Burris takes a look.
I’m hearing a lot about data gravity lately. What does this term have to do with an enterprise’s data management strategy?:
Let’s look at the ‘digital business’ phrase: rather than treating data as an accessory to its activities, we’re talking about a world where a business treats data as the core asset. A digital business is one that organizes its work around the data, creates new business mod...Continue reading
