IBM Cloud, Bluemix + Apple Swift for mobile app front-end and back-end development

Image
It is exciting to see progressively that, the compelling open source architecture brings peace in minds and boosts deep innovation within leading tech companies.Introduced in 2014, Swift which is henceforth open sourced is becoming one of the fastest growing and most widely used programming languages.
The momentum is profound at IBM with the release of its Swift Sandbox for early exploration of server-side programming in Swift.
By to bring Swift to the Cloud IBM is sharing its deep understanding of the advantages of Swift and the knowledge; the company is committed to maturing the use of Swift as a server-side language for enterprise development with the goal to break down barriers between front-end and back-end development, which can provide enterprises a single language to build rich experiences and back-end business logic.

Using big data to address the challenges and opportunities of precision medicine

Image
It is increasingly exciting to see that Big Data and Analytics solution providers are aware of the powerful role researchers and technologists can play in our Big Data age; contributing inter alia to improve our living and working conditions.  Hortonworks, Inc.® , brings up its commitment to the White House’s Precision Medicine Initiative, a bold new research effort to revolutionize how the United States improves health and treats disease.
In fact, Hortonworks will help researchers better understand the root causes of patient health issues and better predict which treatments will be most effective, through its open data platforms and technology.
As part of its commitment, Hortonworks will: Offer free support subscriptions for Hortonworks DataFlow, its data-in-motion platform, to 50 research organizationsProvide online training to 100 research organizations over a two-year periodCreate a new online community called the “Precision Medicine Community” as a part of its Hortonwo…

The new IBM Cloud Object Storage with the Unstructured Data Volumes industry

Image
Cloud, mobile, IoT, analytics, social media, cognitive and other technologies rhythm henceforth our daily lives with generation of growing volumes of data.Within data-driven enterprises, this reality requires inter alia: fast, flexible, hybrid cloud storage-as-a-service solutions.
Data-driven enterprises also need better balance storage cost, location, and compliance control requirements across their data sets and essential applications.
IBM is aware of these stakes and is developing a new object-based cloud storage services to help you better manage your growing volumes of unstructured data.
The company announces a choice of multiple APIs and the option to store massive amounts of data efficiently on-premise, on the IBM Cloud, or across the two in a hybrid environment, with the same level of reliability and consistency of technology across all deployment models. IBM Cloud Object Storage will support both file and object workloads.

The availability of Red Hat Gluster Storage on Google Compute Engine

Image
Distributed systems and architectures are henceforth at the heart of our ever-connected world where performance, scalability, security and flexibility are the game changer.

On Google Cloud Platform, you can harness Google Cloud Storage, DataStore and BigQuery, to store, access and archive your data. On the same impetus, the availability of Red Hat Gluster Storage on Google Compute Engine can able you to access a POSIX compatible shared file system across a fleet of your cloud instances.

Red Hat Gluster Storage can offer a fault tolerant shared file system that can scale vertically and horizontally.
For those who are unfamiliar, Red Hat Gluster Storage makes use of compute instances with disks attached in order to provide a distributed, scale-out file system. Users can synchronously replicate their files across multiple zones and replicate them to a separate region for disaster recovery.
