Stand in any hallway during the Red Hat Summit in Boston this week, and you were likely to hear the c-word. Containers. And the d-word, too. Docker. Those two words seemed to get people more revved up than the energy drinks I saw being consumed everywhere, too. (The p-word, Python, wasn't that far...

At the Red Summit this week in Boston, I had a chance to do an extended sit-down interview with Jim Ganthier, Dell's vice president and general manager of engineered solutions and cloud. For a guy who works for what we all picture as primarily a hardware company, he had very little to say about...

I won a football at the New York Cloud Computing Expo in a session about encryption. Ask a meaty question and the speaker just might toss you a prize. My question was simple: If the only way to protect all the data is to encrypt all the data (except that which is already public), aren't edge...

At the Cloud Computing Expo in New York (June 9-11), there was plenty of talk about Docker, APIs, everything-as-a-service, and all manner of things technical. Yet, there was an interesting simultaneous shift in some of the conversation toward leveraging the cloud to conduct business. And that's a...

Cloud app functionality is not enough

You've got a huge portfolio of development tools for building and testing cloud applications. And you're probably running analytics against that mountain of big data you've kept either on-premises or moved to cloud-storage, maybe because you're not sure which is the better location.
