IceWEB & Saratoga Data Systems Accelerate Cloud Data Ingestion

IceWEB to Integrate FLUME Data Acceleration Product into Iplicity Platform

STERLING, Va., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- IceWEB, Inc.(TM) (OTC Bulletin Board: IWEB), www.IceWEB.com, announced today that the Company has partnered with Saratoga Data Systems, Inc. to integrate their Flume Data Acceleration product into Iplicity Cloud Storage Appliances.

Gary Dunham, SVP Product Development & Engineering for IceWEB detailed the development effort, "IceWEB will bundle or integrate Flume Network Optimization software into our core Iplicity product suite. We are partnering with Saratoga Data Systems to deliver this functionality to our clients, ISP's and MSP's who implement Iplicity products to solve a vexing problem associated with migrating corporate data into emerging cloud storage services. The problem, which in many cases is delaying wholesale migration into cloud storage, is the fact that the volumes of data to be migrated from private networks to cloud storage far exceeds what can be transferred electronically in a reasonable period of time. To 'band-aid' this problem, many providers rely on manually copying data at the remote customer site and then shipping that data on physical devices to the provider's location and downloading that data onto their cloud infrastructure. Such manual processes are by no means a secure, automated, or efficient solution." Dunham continued, "By integrating Flume protocols within Iplicity, we have a solution that significantly accelerates the transfer of large amounts of data across long distance, high latency networks, in a secure, encrypted, and guaranteed error free fashion."

"Iplicity in and of itself is an exciting storage solution," said Greg Fairbank, President & CEO of Saratoga Data Systems. "We're excited at the prospect of integrating Flume Network Optimization with the product suite. We think that the dramatic performance increases Flume can deliver to the cloud storage marketplace coupled with the innovative features found within Iplicity will offer a compelling solution for companies as they begin to migrate their data into the cloud. The fact that Iplicity and Flume will allow rapid transfer of large amounts of data simultaneously to multiple distinct cloud storage providers also will serve to mitigate some of the perceived risks associated with cloud storage vendor lock-in as well."

Microservices Articles
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling. To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone k...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, will discuss how to use Kubernetes to setup a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace....
"There is a huge interest in Kubernetes. People are now starting to use Kubernetes and implement it," stated Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
