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
As you may have heard, Finastra was hit with ransom-ware attacks and were forced to shut down a number of their products and services over the weekend. There are initial reports showing that Finastra may have been running an unpatched VPN with known vulnerability issues. While Finastra has not released the full details and scope
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,
A Data Mesh creates a layer of connectivity that abstracts away the complexities of connecting, managing and supporting an application’s access to remote data. It is used to stitch together data held across multiple environments. The premise of a data mesh is that it uses software to connect environments no matter where it lives, or
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
Our customers always come to us with a problem… “I want to get data from the factory floor to my cloud application” “My customer wants to run my application on-premise, but we don’t deploy our applications onsite.” “My data is scattered across multiple data centers and I can’t replicate it centrally” I could go on
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.
