Software Defined Power requires creating a layer of abstraction that isolates the application from local power dependencies and maximizes application uptime, by leveraging existing failover, virtualization and load-balancing capabilities, writes Clemens Pfeiffer of Power Assure.

CIOs Need To Realize That Virtualization Isn't All That It's Cracked Up To Be (a chief information officer needs an IT strategy to create IT alignment)

The Accidental Successful CIO

In the past, IT departments used to set up a new server for each new application that they wanted to deploy. This low level software allowed multiple applications to run on the same physical hardware but believe that they had the box all to themselves. Things like what operating system an application used no longer mattered – you could mix and match to your heart’s content. Sure Virtualization Seems Neat In The Beginning, But….

DockerCon 2017 Black Belt Session: Cilium for Network and Application Security

Scott Lowe

This is a liveblog of the DockerCon 2017 Black Belt session led by Thomas Graf on Cilium , a new startup that focuses on using eBPF and XDP for network and application security. A lot of it has not evolved as application deployments have evolved from low complexity/low deployment frequency to high complexity/high deployment frequency. This leads to “overloading” the HTTP port and a loss of visibility into which applications are talking over that port.
