iTKO Talking at SYS-CON's SOA, Virtualization, and Cloud Computing Event Nov. 19-21, San Jose, CA

iTKO talking at SYS-CON's SOA - Virtualization - Cloud Computing Event Nov. 19-21

SYS-CON Events announced today that more than 40 Cloud technology providers, as well as Virtualization and SOA companies will exhibit at the upcoming First International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo on November 19-21, in San Jose, California. It's co-located with SOAworld West and Virtualization Expo - so attendees can pick and choose topics from all three agendas. We will be there and we're looking forward to seeing how practitioners will bridge these three disciplines. iTKO's Rajeev Gupta, Director, Solutions Delivery will present at 9:00 AM on Thursday, Nov. 20 - on "Peel the Onion, Lose the Tears: Test, Validate and Virtualize Every Layer of SOA" at the Virtualization Conference. The session will provide best practices and real-world examples of our customers that are testing, validating and virtualizing every component of the architecture, across multiple teams, on a continuous basis, to ensure trust and reliability. A lot of the Cloud is seeping into the practice of both SOA and virtualization. This makes a lot of sense, as SOA is by nature decoupled and leverages distributed software components and logic, much of which will be hosted in the Cloud (see eBay, Google, SalesForce and others we use every day). At the same time we are seeing a need to Virtualize the behaviors of critical Cloud-based services such as transaction and inventory systems, to help teams reduce the cost and dependencies of developing and testing against them. SYS-CON points to the growing market in cloud computing. Over the next five years, IDC expects spending on IT cloud services to grow almost threefold, reaching $42 billion by 2012 and accounting for 9% of revenues in five key market segments. More importantly, spending on cloud computing will accelerate throughout the forecast period, capturing 25% of IT spending growth in 2012 and nearly a third of growth the following year.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
