About EnterpriseWeb

EnterpriseWeb is the first Enterprise-Class, Web-scale application platform for the Cloud. It is being proven in mission-critical operations from life sciences to telecom supporting a diverse set of real-time, data-driven, policy-based applications.

To date, application development using Cloud-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions has generally been limited to building rapid prototypes and experimental applications. At the same time, simply porting legacy apps doesn’t deliver a return on investment or transform the business; it’s just recreating the same old silos in the Cloud.

EnterpriseWeb was developed from the ground up for a Cloud-optimized user experience. It supports a new class of applications and processes that are responsive, adaptive and scalable, while enforcing business compliance and automating IT governance.

EnterpriseWeb’s breakthrough is its novel use of intelligent agents that dynamically “find and bind” application resources based on business context to personalize every interaction. Agents also handle all run time implementation details, sparing programmers from repetitive and tedious development work, thus greatly improving IT productivity. Overall, the agents support a more loosely-coupled and agile enterprise, which enables collaboration between, across, and beyond organizational boundaries for integrated value chains.

EnterpriseWeb is available for public Cloud, private Cloud, and on premise deployment. The company works closely with independent software vendors, system integrators, and domain partners to develop differentiated SaaS offerings, as well as enterprise customers that run ready-to-use SaaS applications or leverage the PaaS platform to develop their own solutions.

If you are within a stones throw of the DevOps marketplace you have undoubtably noticed the growing trend in Microservices. Whether you have been staying up to date with the latest articles and blogs or you just read the definition for the first time, these 5 Microservices Resources You Need In Your Life will guide you through the ins and outs of Microservices in today’s world.
This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...
Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...

Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it'...
Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications, such as websites, real-time messaging and controllers for small devices with limited resources. For DevOps it is crucial to monitor the whole application stack and Node.js is rapidly becoming an important part of the stack in many organizations. Sematext has historically had a strong support for monitoring big data applications such as Elastic (aka Elasticsearch), Cassandra, Solr, S...

There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?

"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.

They are not.

One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor – all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...
