TIBCO Silver – Amazon for Dummies

It’s supposed to cut the time it takes to build and deploy cloud apps ‘from months to minutes’

TIBCO is going down the cloud path like everybody else and like everybody else is claiming that what it's got is "unique."

Its mission is to make it easier for the cloud-curious but diffident Global 2000 to use Amazon and put to rest their availability, security, integration, and governance worries.

TIBCO's widgetry, which will go to beta June 30, is described as a rapid application platform reportedly built from the ground up for building and deploying cloud applications. It's called TIBCO Silver and it's supposed to cut the time it takes to build and deploy cloud apps "from months to minutes."

It's supposed to have "self-aware" elasticity that it gets from TIBCO's Complex Event Processing (CEP) technology so it can roll with the traffic highs and lows on its own.

TIBCO says the widgetry ensures that response time SLAs - a rare cloud feature - are met. It's also guaranteeing system- and compute-level SLAs such as CPU and memory usage.

TIBCO Silver provides container support for Java, C++, Ruby, .NET and Spring; TIBCO is thinking of composite apps that deploy in one click; it fancies composite apps.

Pricing is still up in the air, so to speak. It figures the beta could take maybe six months so it's got time to come up with a pricing model.

It's also supposed to move on to other clouds besides Amazon's.

TIBCO's got VMware and India's HCL Technologies to help mine Silver.

CloudEXPO Stories
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will become more and more prevalent. At the heart of this technology trend exists a custom solution to meet the needs and concerns of enterprise organizations, including compliance, security, and cost issues. The "new normal" of enterprise clients is a world of hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, and it is slowly changing the IT technology landscape. Better tools, better management, and easier adoption a...
The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) is a non-profit organization that provides business support services to companies expanding to Japan. With the support of JETRO's dedicated staff, clients can incorporate their business; receive visa, immigration, and HR support; find dedicated office space; identify local government subsidies; get tailored market studies; and more.
While a hybrid cloud can ease that transition, designing and deploy that hybrid cloud still offers challenges for organizations concerned about lack of available cloud skillsets within their organization. Managed service providers offer a unique opportunity to fill those gaps and get organizations of all sizes on a hybrid cloud that meets their comfort level, while delivering enhanced benefits for cost, efficiency, agility, mobility, and elasticity.
