    Storing time-series data is a frequent pattern for databases – be it for logs or for any kind of monitoring.

MongoDB and TokuMX are both good fits because of their flexible schema feature. But how can we handle data expiration efficiently? Several options are available: capped collections, TTL collections and partitioning (TokuMX only), but they all have different features and performance profiles.SummaryCapped collections:…

    Today’s enterprises know that, to stay competitive, they need to take their operations mobile.

Custom-coding of each app takes years—and millions. On the low end, force-fitting enterprise into mobile devices using web browsers or VDI results in user frustration and lost productivity.Now there’s a better approach…

    Nobody ever expects to receive a counterfeit part, but inevitably in the electronics components distribution supply chain, it can happen. And in high reliability industries like the medical, military, defense, and aerospace fields, where the ruggedness, reliability, and durability of these components are so critical, counterfeit parts can sometimes prove fatal. Electronic components typically utilized in this space must be able to withstand and perform in harsh conditions such as extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, moisture, dust, and dirt. So there is no room for errors or failures. So…

    Himanshu Patel

    The rise of technology trends such as big data and BYOD (bring your own device) are causing a seismic shift in the way data centers are managed today owing to the massive amounts of data they drive. To handle this increasing amount of data, IT managers are turning to software-defined networking (SDN), a new approach to designing, building and managing virtualized networks that separates the network’s control from the physical hardware. SDN is viewed as a manageable, cost-effective and adaptable architecture that can handle the high-bandwidth and dynamic nature of today’s applications. At…

If you think that’s bad, the U.S. government beat the tech industry, with only credit card agencies more trusted than the feds.

  • Tesla Batteries for the Data Center?

    Jeff Clark
    22 May 2015 | 6:25 am
    One of the major impediments to the use of alternative energy (for data centers or in broader contexts) is the lack of large-scale storage. Wind energy is only available when the wind blows, and solar energy is only available for about half the day. Furthermore, the amount generated at a given time may be more than is needed. Electric-car manufacturer Tesla is trying to address this problem for commercial facilities with its Powerpack battery system, according to DatacenterDynamics.

According to the Houston Chronicle, “When employers specify that excellent written communication skills are an essential qualification, they are looking for candidates who can demonstrate their ability to write clearly, succinctly and in a manner that appeals to a wide audience.” Often, just a few changes can turn lousy writing into passable writing and mediocre writing into good writing.

  • Majority of IT Pros don’t trust Biometrics for Corporate Security

    Chris Bunn
    6 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    Only a quarter of IT professionals believe that biometrics is the safest way to confirm identity in order to access corporate data, according to new research from IS Decisions. In fact, no individual technology wins a majority. Biometrics (23%) comes one place behind two-factor authentication (29%), and edged only slightly ahead of the humble old password method, at 19%, physical security keys at 16% and smart threat detection at 10%. The result adds to the argument that organisations should use multiple layers of protection, and that often no one method of authentication is effective in…
  • Relevance is the key to better user security awareness

    A recent piece of research IS Decisions recently conducted found that a shocking seven out of ten office workers admitted that, should they become aware of a security breach at work, they wouldn’t know who to report it to. This survey was across a sample of 2,000 people in the UK and the US, and to most security professionals will probably not be that surprising. We all know that user education on security lacks in most organisations. But this really is the most basic of knowledge requirements. Surely if you are going to teach your users anything at all with regards to security, the first…

  • Scale Out, Not Up, With APIs

    24 May 2015 | 10:54 pm
    Historically, the model to increase an enterprise’s revenue was—to put it plainly—add more. Launch more products, open more locations, print and mail more catalogs, run more advertisements, and so on. If the company wanted to grow, it needed to invest and scale up its processes, systems, human resources and physical presence. Today, that model is […]

    It turns out that CIOs can transform the IT department into a revenue generatorImage Credit: Joe+Jeanette Archie One of the biggest challenges that the person with the CIO job has is that the department that they are responsible for is more often than not viewed as being a cost center. What this means is that the IT department spends and spends and spends and never seems to actually bring in any money. Now I know that we all know all about the importance of information technology; however, to the rest of the company IT sure can seem like a big black hole. However, things are changing and some…

This is what they live for – getting a seat at the big table to help chart the course of the company. We all believe that we deserve this position because of the importance of information technology.

    IT pros know that phishing attacks are rampant. Most will train users to recognize the warning signs. But some recent attacks show that hackers are smart enough to try to stay one step ahead – and have devised attacks that can be successful even when users’ guards are up.  These attacks all use methods that might not raise red flags even among users who know the warning signs and typical patterns of phishing attacks.

One that you may not expect, however, is “helpful.”  FireEye has published the findings of an investigation into TeslaCrypt, a ransomware scheme that locked users out of their files in exchange for the Bitcoin cryptocurrency.

    One thing that developers often do not account for in their cloud usage is the security of that cloud. It is up to cloud managers, with support from IT security, to ensure that their public cloud deployments are secure and that the data and workloads in that cloud are protected. At the heart of public cloud security is a shared responsibility between the cloud vendor and the organization. Forrester calls this “the uneven handshake,” where the cloud service provider is only responsible for securing the data center, infrastructure, and hypervisor, while the end user organization is…

    I have not yet bought an Apple Watch. With an Apple Store just next door and some time on my hands, I decided to try on an Apple Watch (hereinafter Watch).

He was not flustered when he could not answer my questions and quickly got answers for me. Apple.com/watch I tried on both the 38m and 42mm sport edition. The 42mm is too large for me. The 38mm is readable, fits well and is light on the arm. The demo cycle puts the Watch…

  • Which Unicorns have the happiest customers? The 2015 Unicorn GridScape

    Kevin Long
    12 May 2015 | 5:47 am
      To most people, unicorns are mythical one-horned creatures. Their fairy-tale, stuff-of-dreams nature is why Cowboy Ventures founder Aileen Lee used the term “unicorn” in a 2013 TechCrunch blog post to describe companies valued at $1 billion or more by venture capital firms. Unicorn companies were supposed to be rarities; when Lee introduced the concept, she identified 39 startups that had achieved unicorn status. Now, less than a year and a half later, Fortune counts more than 80 startups as unicorns, and according to the Wall Street Journal, the number of unicorn startups has…

    The state of the networking industry is undergoing a transformation. Both hardware and software have given way to the realization that applications and infrastructure are less about the individual functions of the sub-components of the overall system and more about the workflows that are being expressed against the technology as a whole. Workflows, however, are also sub-components of the overall business logic that is being described, and ultimately expressed against the infrastructure. Micro-services and/or services oriented architectures are fundamentally changing many facets of technology,…

    Goran Čandrlić

    Instant purging is key to any CDN as it allows businesses to remove stale, outdated and unwanted content from the edge as quickly as possible. This feature is important to publishers as well as other parts of the web industry that updates info fast (such as social networks, news portals, trading platforms).

  • MSPs Need IDaaS – Growing Success and Building Profitability in a Changing World

    25 May 2015 | 9:00 am
    Today’s world barely resembles the state of the IT industry just a few short years ago.

However, no matter what you decide on, the efficacy of your choice will always boil down to a password of some sort. This is where hackers can strike.

The phenomenon of Big Data is giving us ever-growing volume and variety of data we which we can now store and analyze.

If you don’t use a strong and unique password for every website, you should use a password manager. The typical password manager installs as a browser plug-in to handle password capture and replay.
