OpenStack Trove and DBaaS API: Impedance Match?
The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction
layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of
database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more
specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database,
which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around
MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the
Postgres cloud database.

In their session at 16th Cloud Expo, Fred Dalrymple, product manager for
EnterpriseDB's Postgres Plus Cloud Database, and Amrith Kumar, Founder and
CTO of Tesora, addressed the issues encountered in using Trove to abstract a
complicated cloud database, including gaining access to database
functionality not native in the standar... (more)
The IoT: Possibilities, Challenges, and Real World Questions
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger
and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the
IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps
learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences,
purchases and more.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications
Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, examined the still nascent IoT as it
is coalescing, including what it is today, what it mi... (more)
Zero to Petabytes of Processing in One Year
In their session at @DevOpsSummit, Asaf Yigal, co-founder and the VP of
Product at Logz.io, and Tomer Levy, co-founder and CEO of Logz.io, will
explore the entire process that they have undergone - through research,
benchmarking, implementation, optimization, and customer success - in
developing a processing engine that can handle petabytes of data.
They will also discuss the requirements of such an engine in terms of
scalability, resilience, security, and availability along with how the
architecture accomplishes these requirements.

Context, Wearables, and WebRTC: Communication Next
Big Data, cloud, analytics, contextual information, wearable tech, sensors,
mobility, and WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of
technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications
models and ecosystems.
In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures
at Plantronics, will provide an overview of this technological shift,
including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and
opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
