Cloud-native, continuous security monitoring solution for companies running on Amazon Web Services.

Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform shake up the Public Cloud and henceforth work in real-time with the goal to streamline each experience on their respective platforms.
Cloud-native, continuous security monitoring solutions strengthen this momentum by helping companies running on Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud Platform to streamline deployments; provides ongoing, off site, front-line support and manages priority issues and escalations. recalls that, protecting AWS workloads is indispensable for the productivity and against threats; like removing the burden of managing the process, and the real-time ability to run secure and compliant, without sacrificing speed and efficiency.

Supercomputing Closer to Exascale

We live henceforth in a data-driven age where unstructured, tag data and structured data from multiple sources ramp up.
This means inter alia that, we need streamlined and holistic technologies paradigms, applications and architectures that can deal with this momentum. We need to anticipate the rise of new high performance computing architectures.
IBM and GENCI (high performance computing agency in France), collaborate henceforth when it comes to speed up the path to exascale computing: ‘the ability of a computing system to perform at least one exaflop, or a billion billion calculations, in one second’.
For those who unfamiliar, recalls that, currently the fastest systems in the world perform between ten and 33 petaflops, or ten to 33 million billion calculations per second.
The collaboration, planned to run for at least 18 months, focuses on readying complex scientific applications for systems under development expected to achieve more than 100 petaflops.

Functional and stress testing in our cloud age.

Public cloud, Private cloud and Hybrid cloud streamline our living and working conditions with a set of benefits including: Agility, flexibility, performance, productivity, security, scalability, cost savings and more.
Alongside this momentum, recalls that for those who don’t control the infrastructure, it is indispensable to know the implementation behind APIs you rely on. In fact, APIs and associated SLAs are central to the operation of your systems. Follow the age old maxim, trust but verify, and verify by testing!
Meaning inter alia that, functional and stress testing are henceforth a game-changer. Here are a set of best practices susceptible to help you.

First best practice is to rely on and leverage established and streamlined Platform to provide the resources to stress test.

Second best practice is that systems are often complex, with different tiers and services interacting and it can be tough to predict how they will behave under stress, so use stress testin…
