Solving Database Deployments with Database DevOps

Is Your Database Blocking You from True DevOps Success?

Traditional database change management is complex, adding risk and uncertainty to the software release process and making it hard for development and operations teams to collaborate effectively. No wonder the database is often seen as a blocker to DevOps success.

This whitepaper explains how you can overcome this by extending DevOps practices to the database. You’ll gain consistency across your applications and databases, increase efficiency across your teams and remove that last bottleneck.

Simple AWS Networking with Application Defined SD-WAN

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud is a proven route to help organizations achieve rapid scalability, reduced time-to-market, and cost-effectiveness in their IT infrastructure. These benefits are delivered, in part, by automation, greater ease-of-use, and simplified management.

Many are challenged, however, with legacy network infrastructure and management solutions, as the complexity of managing dynamic workloads, as well as inconsistency in performance and security, can impair many of the benefits AWS provides. SD-WAN helps organizations overcome this challenge by providing automation and simplified management for cloud networking. This whitepaper looks at how Riverbed SD-WAN can help organizations improve performance, agility, and security in their cloud-centric network.

Digital Business and Cloud Demand New WAN Architectures

Today’s WANs (wide area networks) represent up to 25% of support costs for a typical end-user environment—yet fail to deliver the application performance and business agility required of digital business. The emergence of software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions is changing all that.

Read this Gartner paper to explore how:

  • SD-WAN provides the foundation for digital business by automating manual tasks involved in configuring current networks
  • To align WAN strategy and architecture with business and application requirements
  • To create a strategy team from a broad range of disciplines to map out the new WAN architecture and successfully execute it

NetOps 2.0: Embrace Network Automation and Analytics to Stay Relevant in the Digital Business Era

Today, less than 5% of network operations teams are sufficiently skilled to realize the value possible from network analytics and automation solutions. This will improve over the next three years, but not much—by 2020, only 30% of network operations teams will be able to fully realize the benefits of these tools.

Read this Gartner paper to explore how to achieve greater network agility and reduce complexity by:

  • Building or retraining NetOps teams to embrace a process-driven culture
  • Applying network automation technologies
  • Translating business impact into network automation requirements
  • Translating network configuration changes to intent-based policy

Digital Businesses Need to Rethink Their Network Strategies ZK Research White Paper

The network plays a fundamental role in enabling the shift to digital. But it simply cannot fulfill this function while it is hardware-bound and hard-coded.

The network must become cloudlike to enable delivery of dynamic, rich digital services quickly and easily. This means shifting away from old approaches that require configuration of individual boxes to an approach that is software-defined, based on policy and orchestration. It’s time for SD-WAN.

Read this ZK Research white paper to:

  • Understand the challenge with traditional networks
  • Chart a path to SD-WAN
  • Learn what to look for in SD-WAN vendors

Windows 10: The Big New Opportunity for Developers

Windows 10 is not just another release. Microsoft is introducing a concept it calls “Windows as a service,” which means that the operating system will be continuously updated, though with options for businesses to move at a slow pace in order to retain stability.

Windows 10 is Microsoft’s second attempt at moving its core operating system into the mobile era. Windows 8, released in late 2012, was a bold re-imagining of Windows that divided the system into two personalities, one that was a new touch-friendly environment originally called Metro, and the other the traditional desktop. Metro is powered by a runtime layer called the Windows Runtime (WinRT), for which apps are written using the .NET languages (C# or Visual Basic), HTML and JavaScript, or C++.

Delphi and C++Builder on Raspberry Pi & SBC

The Raspberry Pi is an example of a single board computer. These low cost hobby or project computers are a prime staple of the Internet of Things. More powerful than an Arduino, but not a full desktop. They often have limited or specialized hardware, but their small size and low cost make them ideal for embedded application development.

Delphi supports both ARM and Intel processors with a variety of operating systems. This webinar will explore the combinations of hardware and operating system that make good Delphi target platforms. Then we will look at some examples and provide some resources to get you started.
