03 Jul 2017 Is The Public Cloud Out For Disaster Recovery? [64748]
The Datacenter Journal, July 3rd 2017

"ComputerWeekly's Cliff Saran wrote that 'AWS Outage Shows Vulnerability of Cloud Disaster Recovery' in his article of March 6, 2017. He cites the S3 outage suffered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) on February 28, 2017, as an example of the risks you face by running critical systems in the public cloud. 'The consensus is that the public cloud is superior to on-premise datacentres, but AWS's outage, caused by human error, shows that even the most sophisticated cloud IT infrastructure is not infallible,' he said..."

03 Jul 2017 When The Cloud Becomes Just Normal Infrastructure [64749]
ITBusinessEdge, July 3rd 2017

"Strange as it may seem, the cloud only holds about a fifth of the total enterprise workload, which means there is still time for the enterprise to suddenly decide that the risks are not worth the rewards and start pulling data and applications back to legacy infrastructure.

Unlikely as this is, it nonetheless points out the fact that there are still many unknowns when it comes to the cloud, particularly its ability to provide the lion's share of data infrastructure in ways that are both cheaper and more amenable to enterprise objectives..."

02 Jul 2017 For IoT Over WiFi, 802.11ax Is the New HaLow [64562]
NetworkComputing, June 22nd 2017

"The new .ax standard is better equipped than HaLow to support the internet of things," suggests Hemant Chaskar in NetworkComputing.

"The Wi-Fi Alliance endorsed IEEE 802.11ah for IoT connectivity nearly 18 months ago and dubbed it HaLow. The standard operates in the unlicensed frequency spectrum below 1 GHz and in narrow channel widths of 1 and 2 MHz.

Since IoT applications don't need large data pipes, HaLow provides for data rates as low as 150 Kbps. It has protocol provisions for the long sleep times for clients, because many IoT applications only require intermittent data transfers. Altogether, HaLow provides for lower power consumption, lower complexity and longer range for IoT clients..."

02 Jul 2017 RIP, Systems Administrator, Welcome DevOps [64557]
InformationWeek, June 23rd 2017

"While the traditional sys admin role may fade away, those who are willing to change can take an exciting journey with cloud and DevOps," notes Santosh Balan in InformationWeek.

"Looking back at times to the internal IT landscape, a system administrator was a star role in a small to medium enterprise. They were the 911 for IT operations and it was important to have their phone numbers saved, if you had to keep your project moving forward.

The role of the system administrator, as we know it, is undergoing a major transformation due to digitization and cloud. This was traditionally a segregated role for those who did all the installations, backups, etc., and owned the on premise infrastructure. They almost always had an ongoing feud with developers to guard their territory and coding was not their forte..."
