We are in the business of helping software providers with tools that make them more secure and efficient. In those conversations, we get exposed to the infinite number of ways that companies architect, develop, and support their application’s infrastructure. While the architecture and delivery of applications has never been trivial work, there has been an
Let’s start with a paradox – The potential of the cloud is limitless BUT the cloud is currently being limited. What the public cloud providers have built is a marvel of modern technology. Millions of coordinated systems running across dozens of regions not only provides the massive amounts of computing and storage needed to power
This blog provides an overview of our upcoming webinar, Lowering the Cost of Connectivity: Increasing the ROI of Cloud Applications. Trustgrid’s Chief Product Officer, Joe Gleinser, will guide participants through the problems, solutions and implementation process of secure cloud to on-premise connectivity and its cost-saving implications. The cloud is changing IT infrastructure, allowing application providers
Everyday we speak with companies looking for ways to improve the cost and performance of their application’s connectivity. When the topic of MPLS comes up, there is a predictable groan of resigned disappointment. No one is coming to its defense. How can a technology that is so widely used, be so uniformly disliked? Normally, technologies
As the economy ebbs and flows, the pressure for application providers to lower operating costs comes into greater focus. The shift to cloud operations was driven by this motivation. In addition to the scalability, flexibility and availability that cloud computing offers, lowering IT operational costs was one of the biggest reasons for the switch. Similarly,
As applications become centralized, the data resources that they need to operate find themselves in places that are harder and harder to reach. This has presented challenges for product and engineering teams who want to expand product offerings and simplify management of applications but are stuck having to deal with data resources that must remain
The term data gravity, which was initially coined by GE Engineer Dave McCrory in a 2010 blog post, refers to the ability of large amounts of data to attract applications, services, and other data. In this context, the bigger the data, the more that applications and services will be drawn to it. Similar to The
A service mesh is a software infrastructure that facilitates communications between microservices. It is used to control how different parts of an application integrate with each other. This prevents monolithic application architecture by allowing applications to be broken down to a collection of services that can be built, maintained and improved independent of the others.
The spread of hybrid cloud architectures has caused an evolution in the networking solutions used to connect everything.
FinTech has exploded over the last decade. The community banking and credit union industries are craving additional features, customer experiences and way to differentiate themselves, and innovation in FinTech is allowing them to do it.
The FinTech space is transforming. This transformation has been simmering for years and is just beginning to catch fire.
Millions depend on the accuracy, reliability and security of healthcare technology. As the healthcare industry evolves it has been forced to deal with the demands of new features, growing data sets, and interoperability between organizational boundaries.
