Mastering Spring Framework 5, Part 2: Spring WebFlux

Posted by Steven Haines on Jun 26, 2019 1:30:00 PM

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.

Data Center Consolidation with Turbonomic

Posted by Bosheng Song on Nov 17, 2016 8:30:51 AM

From NASA retiring its 45,000 sq ft data center to the U.S. Federal government saving more than $2.8 billion, many of the biggest data center owners in the world are making the long-term effort to scale their data centers more efficiently by consolidating the current hardware on an ongoing basis. Trying to figure out if there is more “juice” in a densely deployed virtual environment might be one of the most challenging but also expected progression of IT operations. Their increasing demand for more efficient computing power and storage space makes the growth of a scalable and elastic data center a necessity.

RCA Revisited: The Valid Reasons for Root Cause Analysis

Posted by Eric Wright on Jul 7, 2016 3:42:48 PM

In a previous post about the shift away from Root Cause Analysis (RCA) due to the increase in microservices implementations.  It's much more than just a microservices deployment that will change the way that we operate our application infrastructure.  In the article, I actually referred to a distributed application design using AWS infrastructure.

So, what’s the deal with Serverless?

Posted by Eric Wright on May 30, 2016 11:45:09 AM

#Serverless is the new #Docker according to many. The unfortunate thing about the seemingly sudden thrust of event-driven on-demand computing, is that it is being wrapped into a buzzword as if that is all there is to it. Before you dismiss the serverless movement, let’s take a few minutes together and talk about what it is, and what it isn’t.

Buying hardware yet still suffering from performance issues?

Posted by Iddo Avneri on Jan 7, 2016 9:35:06 AM

It is difficult to decide on the amount of hardware needed for your datacenter to assure application performance. In addition to the huge complexity we discussed before, I would like to concentrate on a single consideration – peak utilization demand.

3.6 Million Zombie Servers, 1 BIG Energy Footprint

Posted by Galen Farrar on Oct 30, 2015 6:30:32 AM

It’s hard to find a data center today that doesn’t run at least a few servers with 0% utilization across all KPIs. These “zombie” servers are prevalent in nearly all data centers and take up unused space. Awareness of these dormant servers has risen for larger companies in the industry, but for the vast majority of data centers around the world, this is not exactly a tier-1 priority issue.

Balancing Budgets Part 2: Reduce CAPEX Spend Through Cluster Consolidation & Controlled Density Increases

Posted by Stephen Gibbons on Oct 9, 2015 5:21:31 AM

Unlike OpEx, No Small Workarounds for the Depreciating Value of CapEx

How many times have we sat in CAPEX meetings astonished by the amount of money we spend on things such as hardware and perpetual licensing (read also: Balancing Budgets Part 1: How to Avoid Runaway Software Licensing), it seems to rise every year no matter what! For years the hardware resellers have been making a killing off of the IT industry, as have the manufacturers. Unfortunately CAPEX spends like hardware doesn’t have the small workaround that you can use with OPEX like open source software or things like that. How do you reduce what you spend on things such as physical hardware, the software that goes on that hardware, or the datacenter that the hardware sits in?
