DataSynapse's Gordon Jackson to Present at SYS-CON's Virtualization Conference & Expo

Gordon Jackson's Virtualization Session - Service Virtualization: Got Grid?

There is considerable attention being paid to service oriented architectures (SOA) and their promise of leveraging new and existing application components – services – in composite applications that may span multiple business units within an organization. While the construction, or enablement, of these services is well defined, what is often left as an assumption is that once deployed, the service will simply be available. The reality is that if consideration is not given to the reliability, availability and recoverability of your services, then you may find yourself leaping from the frying pan and into the fire.

This presentation will discuss the use of service virtualization and grid technology to enable service execution. Using existing grid technologies, organizations can achieve guaranteed, horizontal scaling of service execution across the entire computing infrastructure, regardless of demand. The result is an infrastructure for deploying, managing and scaling services that delivers the confidence that, when called, your service will be available.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
