Private PaaS in 25 Minutes, App Deployment in 25 Seconds
Hosted PaaS providers have given independent developers and startups huge
advantages in efficiency and reduced time-to-market over their more
process-bound counterparts in enterprises. Software frameworks are now
available that allow enterprise IT departments to provide these same
advantages for developers in their own organization.
In his workshop session at DevOps Summit, Troy Topnik, ActiveState's
Technical Product Manager, will show how on-prem or cloud-hosted Private PaaS
can enable organizations to use this technology on their own infrastructure,
and introduce efficient development workflows for deploying applications.

IoT – Enterprise-Ready Policies for Personal Data Required
By Andy Kicklighter
Given the current global furor over continuing data breaches, Edward Snowden
disclosures, the hue and cry around NSA data collection from mobile phones
and mobile encryption, now is a good time to stop and think before we plunge
wholesale into even more extensive collection of personal information from
IoT environments and devices.
Think how much worse a breach of data could be if it includes full profiles
of people’s movements, actions, eating habits, purchase preferences or even
more personal inform... (more)

Boy was I naive. When I first learned about the term PaaS, I threw it away
quickly into a metaphorical garbage can. Of course you need your servers I
thought. This was about five years ago. But now, I realize how silly that
While IaaS is still the primary back end for applications, there are many out
there that contain a combination of PaaS and IaaS, and a rare handful that

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
