Deploying Consistent Application Services in Multi-Cloud Environments

Bildschirmfoto 2019 05 29 um 14.07.06

Most organizations prioritize cloud flexibility—and let application teams choose the best environment for each application—over the organizational benefits of common environments, processes, and tools. This leads to 9/10 of organizations supporting multiple clouds, selecting best-of-breed capabilities from each platform. As applications proliferate, it becomes more challenging to implement consistent cross-cloud security, regulatory compliance, and application performance policies—and organizations rightly have concerns about long-term operability. In fact, as the size of the application portfolio grows, so does the threat landscape with bad actors targeting apparently inconsequential applications that tend to be poorly protected but offer a pathway into corporate data and other systems. The key for IT is to strike the right balance between freedom and flexibility for application development teams, while enabling the easy and consistent inheritance of corporate security, compliance, performance, and operability requirements. That means standardizing on core application services across cloud environments—without slowing down CI/CD deployment velocity.

Protect and Optimize Containerized Apps

Container platforms such as Kubernetes and RedHat OpenShift combine with agile development methodologies to speed up application development and deployment. By allowing developers to break applications up into smaller components (also known as microservices), containers can help reduce dependencies, allow component-level scaling, and encourage rapid release lifecycles.

However, containerized apps can still be exposed to application-layer vulnerabilities, denial-of-service attacks, and the impacts of client-side network latency. This means th ...

The State of Application Services

When F5 started its journey to understand the importance of application services with the context of emerging technologies, the DevOps movement was just beginning to trickle into the broader enterprise IT market. As applications have become the very foundation of our digital economy, the ability to develop, deliver and deploy applications frequently and at global scare is integrate to shareholder value.

We thought it would be interesting to look at the results of our 2019 State of Application Services survey specifically as it relates to Dev ...

Going Beyond Traditional Data Integration to Achieve Business Agility

Providing business users with the data they need to make effective decisions has always been difficult. Increasing data volumes, varieties of data and heterogeneous data stores are not making this task any easier. For the past two decades, the solution to accessing disparate data has been to consolidate the data into a data warehouse, and provide users with tools to access and analyze this consolidated data.

However, growing demand to access data not managed by the data warehouse, coupled with the need to access current data for more agile d ...

Save IT admin time with the Dell EMC PowerEdge MX platform and OpenManage Enterprise

We tested the Dell EMC PowerEdge MX against a Cisco UCS® solution, measuring the admin time and steps required for some typical management tasks. The Dell EMC solution enabled our admin to implement VMware vSANTM in 86.8 percent less admin time and save 19 steps (and spend 73.9 percent less admin time) updating firmware on a single system. The PowerEdge MX also took under two minutes of admin time to provision storage internally. The Cisco UCS solution, meanwhile, offered no in-chassis assignable storage module, forcing admins needing storage t ...
