"Accogliamo Versant nella famiglia Actian con estremo piacere", ha detto Steve Shine, Amministratore delegato di Actian. "Il completamento di questa operazione significa che i clienti ora trarranno beneficio da una piattaforma dinamica di capacità di gestione dati che consente di estrarre valore economico dai big data. Il nostro straordinario database di analitica Vectorwise, combinato all'attuale competenza di Versant, ci consentirà di accrescere il nostro successo nel soddisfare le esigenze nel settore analisi dei dati".

There is no question that the cloud is where businesses want to host data. Until recently hypervisor virtualization was the most widely used method in cloud computing. Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...

The web app is Agile. The REST API is Agile. The testing and planning are Agile. But alas, Data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes which force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software orga...

How do software owners track the usag...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
