Turbonomic 6.4 introduces a variety of new features and integrations. Updates to the VMware Horizon VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) integration are among the new capabilities which have our customers extremely excited to be able to use the Turbonomic Application Resource Management platform to get the most performance and value out of their VMware Horizon deployments.
The women of Turbonomic are core to our success. The company is supported by high-performing women who play a critical role in the company’s growth. We’re a diverse group, coming from different countries, cultures, backgrounds, and experiences. Given the challenges that women in technology face, we recognize the importance of fostering inclusivity and advancing the careers of our Turbo women.
In the second part of our series, we talk to Meghan Shipp, who has been at Turbonomic for 1 year and 7 months. Read below to learn all about her journey!
Microsoft end of support (EOS) for SQL Server 2008 is officially here. As of July 9th 2019, Microsoft has ceased providing patches and security updates for the popular SQL Server 2008 (R2) platforms, leaving organizations who have yet to plan for this date exposed from a security and compliance perspective. Doing nothing is risky and paying for extended support is wildly expensive and only offered to a certain group of customers. This leaves two options, upgrade your SQL Server 2008 workloads to a newer version of SQL or migrate your SQL Server 2008 workloads to Microsoft Azure (Microsoft provides incentives for this).
In this continuing blog series, we will be interviewing the employees of Turbonomic to find out more about what they do, why they do it, and why green is their favorite color. You will hear from Marketers, Recruiters, Sales Development Reps, and everything in between.
Spring WebFlux introduces reactive web development to the Spring ecosystem. This article will get you started with reactive systems and reactive programming with Spring. First you'll find out why reactive systems are important and how they're implemented in Spring framework 5, then you'll get a hands-on introduction to building reactive services using Spring WebFlux. We'll build our first reactive application using annotations. I'll also show you how to build a similar application using Spring's newer functional features.
There is a cloud waste problem: most organizations using public cloud are wasting thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars on cloud resources they’re not actually using. Whether it’s due to pre-production resources running 24x7, improperly sized resources, or resources that have simply been orphaned or forgotten, the wasted spend can grow to become a significant portion of a public cloud bill.
Digital transformation and cloud migration have achieved a symbiotic relationship between applications and delivery of business services: digital transformation extends legacy applications and manual processes into the cloud and the cloud provides the means to more effectively deliver those transformed processes to users anywhere on the planet.
The cloud provides numerous other advantages, such as agility, ease of scale, elasticity, improved resiliency, continuous availability, and integrated backup: capabilities which bring forth both technological and operational advantages to businesses seeking to maximize the value behind their applications.
Challenges of Moving to the Cloud
Despite the advantages of migrating to the cloud, there are numerous challenges associated with moving applications, platforms and services to the cloud, ranging from establishing compatibility, to instituting security, to assuring performance. For example, most legacy applications are not designed to operate in a cloud environment, meaning that considerations such as the user interface, security challenges and support for databases must be addressed. These challenges can complicate migrations to the cloud and also highlight the importance of having a plan and the appropriate knowledge to execute on that plan, along with the appropriate technology to ensure that plan leads to a smooth cloud migration.
Cloud computing platforms and associated applications are proliferating across enterprises, playing a central role in digital transformation initiatives. There are many paths to the cloud and many public cloud choices, with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure continuing to dominate public cloud market and growth.
Which Path Should You Take?
Normally, having multiple paths and choices proves beneficial for those adopting disruptive technologies, but that is not the case with digital transformation. Here, multiple choices often lead to complexity and compatibility issues that can derail a transformation project. To fully realize the benefits of digital transformation, the ability to match each workload with the cloud target best able to meet the service level requirements can determine whether a project succeeds or fails. Having a good understanding of management concepts, workload types and platform capabilities proves to be critical for those looking to make a smooth transition to cloud services.
