Settling the edge computing vs. cloud computing debate

David Linthicum

I’m beginning to hear a lot of noise from the tech press warning that cloud computing is in danger from emerging edge computing technology. As somebody who works on both sides of the network, I want to clear a few things up. Indeed some processing is moving to the edge of the network, when it makes sense. For example, take a vehicle management system that has two sides: the edge computing side and the cloud/central computing side. Both have different roles. What is cloud computing?

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

It's time for cloud management with automated fixes

David Linthicum

It’s 4:00 in the morning, and you are awoken out of a sound sleep by a phone call from your cloudops center. It seems the inventory application in the public cloud is down. You know this because some tile on some application monitoring console changed from green to red. Those charged with monitoring public cloud-based applications only know that if this particular application goes down, then they need to call the application admin, which is you. What is cloud computing?
