How SaaS providers are managing edge applications and appliances. On-Prem environments are messy! However, they are necessary for many applications that simply cannot run in the cloud. This means that industries wanting to remotely manage on-premises appliances and applications have been the last to benefit from cloud adoption. Legacy Connectivity Approaches Fall Short As the
Connect SaaS to Customer Data
Network-as-a-Service is the easiest way to connect SaaS to customer data sources Delivering a SaaS application from the cloud requires a rethinking of tech, team, and processes. When committing to a public cloud, staffing for new DevOps commitments, and handling new support responsibilities, it’s important to make informed decisions. But there are also less obvious
SaaS Networking Surprises
How many of us have started a home improvement project and ended up making a handful of trips to the store to complete it? Even a simple painting project can surface unforeseen problems that turn into 3 trips to the store for more tape, brushes, or plastic coverings. While this might be annoying, it isn’t
Cloud and the Complexity of Distributed Applications
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. We’ve also discovered that the complexity of distributed applications is a significant challenge. While the architecture
Removing Cloud Limitations with Edge Networking
Explore the potential of edge networking to overcome cloud limitations. Discover how public cloud providers leverage coordinated systems.
Lowering the Cost of Connectivity
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
The 4 Biggest Misconceptions About MPLS
Every day 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 defence. How can a technology that is so widely used, be so uniformly disliked? Typically,
Data Mesh: The Quickest Way to Lower Operating Costs
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,
Connecting Cloud Applications to Customer Data Sources
As applications become more centralized, the data resources they require are often located in remote customer data centers, which can be difficult to access. This poses challenges for product and engineering teams who want to expand their offerings and simplify the management of cloud applications, but are limited by the need to work with data
Cloud and the Data Gravity Problem
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
What is a Data Mesh?
A service mesh is a software infrastructure that enables communication between microservices in an application. Its purpose is to manage how different parts of the application integrate with one another, which helps to avoid monolithic application architecture. By breaking down the application into a collection of services, each service can be developed, maintained, and improved
Application-Driven Network Architectures
The spread of hybrid cloud architectures has caused an evolution in the networking solutions used to connect everything.
