Big data is an evolving topic that has its own set of challenging, with the processing and data from a variety of data stores both structured, unstructured and then preparing it for analysis. Xplenty acts as the pipeline to gather the raw data, process it and then transfer to the analytical datastore that is preferred by the such as Amazon Redshift or Google's Big Query.
A typical use case involves online mobile or gaming companies that understand that they must understand their data in order to remain competitive. Although the preparation of the data is not particularly dramatic, it is essential to processing and the commercial insight that big data can provide.
Hacktivists, rogue nation-sponsored actors, and criminals with advanced cyber capabilities have now supplanted industry competitors as the primary security risks for enterprise activities in the cloud. Bringing a datacenter from on-premise to the cloud depends upon being able to adapt everything that you have been doing as monitoring your infrastructure to be able to maintain the same degree of awareness and control.

Combining virtual infrastructure and cloud-based computing technologies can be complicated. While moving a single disk workload is very easy, but it quickly becomes more complicated when there are a number of workloads to be moved, while preserving the flexibility to move back in house or to another cloud vendor in the future.
HotLink enables you to either move from Zen, KVM or VMware into AWS, move between hypervisors if necessary, and move back into on-premise if that makes more sense for the business environment. You can eliminate overlay solutions that provide specialized automation on top of multiple native management toolsets, managing from a central point of view.
Developers are enthusiastic about moving to the cloud, but regulatory compliance concerns cause many organizations to go slow with broadbased transfer to the cloud. Many companies cannot move everything, and for what ever reason must maintain certain apps and data on premises.
Cloudian's product tiers to the cloud, allowing developers to burst into the cloud using S3, but reserving local on-premises storage for other application workloads. The biggest growth in data is unstructured, growing at about eight times the rate of traditional block storage data. Storage is extremely inexpensive at around one cent per GB per month.
The cloud is generally a very open environment, but security is a shared responsibility between the cloud provider and the customer. Sensitive data like HIPPA,PCI,SOX, passwords and emails can easily sneak into your database.
Putting data on the cloud in a secure and regulatory compliant manner is a major challenge, protecting it from competitors and cyber criminals. GreenSQL is a software based front end add-on to the database, where all the sensitive information is stored. Once installed , the code fully camouflages and secures the data of applications,privileged users, and employees
The product combines monitoring, auditing, and dynamic data masking. Sensitive data auto discovery automatically scans and automatically applies policies and provides an automated compliance reports. Each and every query into the database is analyzed, but the overall interface has been simplified for use. The image is available in the Amazon marketplace.
SAP Customers face a set of challenges migrating to AWS usually takes about four to five weeks. Rocket Steam offers a way to reduce that to under 24 hours, migrating the somewhat rigid SAP system onto AWS, and allowing management of the AWS installation in an automated manner. The Rocket Steam set of tools are targeted at consultancy firms and includes HANAlyzed, which allows customers to make a test drive of the system on AWS using their data, without an additional license.
Migration and Disaster recovery usually relies upon file snapshots, database mechanisms, or other manual processes that are detached from one another. A point in time snapshot must be caught up in time once the application migration has completed, in order to incorporate additional transactions. Cloud Endure started providing replication of apps from one AWS Region to another. Using the same technology they extended into the migration space, getting not only the entire application stack into the cloud but the data as well. Their product offers continuous block level replication for any application that runs on Windows or Linux, without zero downtime and adverse affect on the performance of the application.
Enterprises have a real problem meeting storage needs in the cloud. Cloud storage products have evolved with focus on start-ups rather than enterprise applications and have traditionally been difficult to integrate with enterprise storage protocols and practice. Zadara Storage offers a service based on traditional protocols such as NFS to migrate traditional shared storage to the cloud, leveraging AWS Direct Connect with less than 1msec latency from five AWS regions.
Amazon is making a major shift into the enterprise space, taking clear aim at VMWare. Greg Ness of Cloud Velox and other long-term industry veterans say that there are still issues concerning the cost of getting an enterprise IT span into the cloud. Amazon needs to make it faster, more convenient and less expensive to deploy apps into AWS. Many early cloud migration vendors began with tools aimed at developers for single servers that were not good for mixed environments, but the Trillion dollar Enterprise IT market demands a level of automation of stacks, application, network services and physical systems. CloudVelox technology offers the potential to automate up to 75% of the transition effort. Projects taking three to six months with thousands of man-hours of effort can be condensed into a few weeks.
Cloud optimization and cost are on the mind of every AWS customer, and they are looking for ways to manage the complexity. Cost is just one element of the package including security, reliability, performance and availability that have to be optimized . Cloud Health Tech targets the very largest of AWS customers, that might have hundreds of thousands of AWS Reserved instances per quarter.
Since usage changes over time, these may float in and out of the pool of reserved instances. Using the Cloudhealth Tech product, you can set up rules based recommendations to execute well thought out actions in real time to manage the overall cloud investment.

Enterprise customers must reach users and more importantly deliver a fast user experience. Bottlenecks in web design, coding or settings can have marked effects as the number of simultaneous users increases. The only way to insure that ten thousand, a hundred thousand or a million users have a satisfactory experience is to harness cloud resources to temporarily stress the system for few hours. With free trial accounts offering tests with up to 50 users or full production testing with hundreds of thousands or more, the solution does not involve hardware or software.
