Strategies for Transitioning to a Cloud First Enterprise

DATAVERSITY

A great comfort with cloud deployment has emerged. Businesses are migrating databases to the cloud or building databases there as a result of scale challenges with the on-premises model, the cloud becoming the “center of gravity”, on-premises databases reaching capacity or emerging uses cases that are specific to the cloud. But not all organizations! And some struggle mightily with the move!

Open Compute has had a significant impact on the thinking about data center design. Until now, the focus has been on systems at the rack level, leaving unanswered questions about the power infrastructure upstream of the rack. In this paper, we address critical questions about the implications of Open Compute on the upstream power infrastructure, including redundancy, availability, and flexibility. We introduce simplified reference designs that support OCP and provide a capital cost analysis to compare traditional and OCP-based designs. We also present an online TradeOff Tool that allows data center decision makers to better understand the cost differences and cost drivers to various architectures.

Using MySQL for Distributed Database Architectures

Percona

In modern data architectures, we’re increasingly moving from single node design systems to distributed architectures using multiple nodes often spread across multiple databases and multiple continents. Such architectures bring many benefits (such as scalability and resiliency), but can also bring a lot of pain if incorrectly architected.

Approaching Data Management Technologies

infogix

Our architecturally solid stool requires three legs: people, process, and technologies. This webinar looks at the most misunderstood of these three components: technology. While most organizations begin with technologies, it turns out that technologies are the last component that should be considered. This webinar will survey a range of Data Management technologies that can be used to increase the productivity of Data Management efforts.
