ActiveState Stackato(R) Private PaaS Makes Hybrid Cloud Real... Today

Canadian Cloud Software Firm Announces Sept. 27 Hybrid Cloud Webinar Featuring GigaOM Principal Research Director Jo Maitland, ActiveState CEO Bart Copeland

VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 09/20/12 -- ActiveState, whose software enables developers and enterprises to innovate from code to cloud, today announced an upcoming webinar on the topic of hybrid cloud computing, titled "Making Hybrid Real - Practical Steps to Hybrid Cloud with Private PaaS." Next week's webinar will be led by ActiveState CEO, Bart Copeland, and will feature analysis from GigaOM Principal Research Director, Jo Maitland.

"Hybrid clouds are moving from myth to reality," Maitland said. "Enterprise innovators aren't waiting -- they're adopting extensible, secure hybrid cloud computing technologies to support new ways of working."

"Cloud computing should no longer be an either/or proposition," Copeland said. "Today's -- and more importantly, tomorrow's -- enterprise demands the security of a private PaaS with the unlimited scalability of the public cloud. Hybrid can deliver that."

In the Thursday, Sept. 27 webinar, Maitland and Copeland will address key hybrid cloud issues:

  • What are hybrid cloud's value propositions (and why should we care)?
  • What market and technology forces are driving interest in hybrid cloud?
  • How (and when) should enterprises assess hybrid cloud computing models?
  • Who's adopting hybrid cloud now, and why?
  • How practical is hybrid cloud today?

"Some industry pundits aren't exactly bullish on hybrid cloud computing adoption," Copeland said. "In this webinar, Jo and I will assess the cloud computing status quo and discuss why enterprises can't afford to postpone hybrid consideration. And we'll show how enterprise private PaaS technology like Stackato from ActiveState can make hybrid cloud computing real. Today."

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.

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...
