In order to effectively compete, today’s businesses need to be able to deliver features, services and solutions far more rapidly than ever before – while maintaining a high quality and rich user experience. As such, businesses are strategically investing in moving modernized, complex enterprise applications to the cloud, enabling IT and business operations to sell more effectively, increase competitive differentiation and more.

No Reservations? That’s Going to Cost You.

With the release of vCommander 6.0.2, Administrators who already cut their Amazon Web Services (AWS) spend using rightsizing recommendations for instance types, can now further maximize their public cloud budget with Reserved Instance purchase recommendations. For anyone using Amazon Web Services, Reserved Instances (RIs) are one of the most effective ways to control compute costs, allowing you to reserve EC2 computing capacity at significantly discounted rates in exchange for committing to purchase the instances offer a fixed period of time. Compared with on-demand instance pricing, reserved instances can offer up to 75% lower costs.

Automating Your Private Cloud with Embotics vCommander

Many organizations today – especially those just starting out on their cloud journey – start their migration to the cloud through private infrastructure. Committing all in to the cloud can be daunting (and unrealistic), and by adopting private cloud solutions first, companies can more easily gain the benefits of the cloud, including flexibility and scalability, while still maintaining complete control over their data.

DevOps: The Game Changer (Pt2)

In part 1 of this blog post, I discussed the overarching principles of a DevOps methodology, and how it can bring a profound benefit to your ROI. But, another impetus for DevOps is the cloud services world. In the cloud native world, delivery is not preparing a software package for a customer to install or upgrade in their environment. Instead customers purchase a service that developer is providing, hence deployment means updating a cloud-based production environment in a seamless manner while making sure there is no disruption in service.

Microservices: The Latest Industry Buzz

With the growth in cloud and mobile technologies, there’s a new player in town when it comes to application development: microservices. You’ve probably seen microservices, containers and serverless computing mentioned across the news these past few months – and the reason is not surprising. Microservices architecture has the potential to seriously disrupt the way enterprise IT develops applications in the future.

DevOps: The Game Changer (Pt1)

DevOps is a game changing methodology of iterative software development that embraces close collaboration between contributing software developers, QA and IT operations staff. Rather than discrete handoffs between teams, DevOps represent a continuous technology flow where development, QA and operations are interwoven in a precise and predictable way. It’s both a software development process methodology, as well as a toolchain implementation recipe.

Removing Barriers to Automation

There was a time not too long ago when the concept of cloud computing was cutting edge, but as adoption has accelerated over the past decade, you’d be hard pressed to find an enterprise that isn’t outsourcing at least some of its mission-critical processes to the cloud.

The IT Crossroads

During the past few decades perhaps no C-level position has undergone as many changes in expectations, approaches, and philosophies as that of the Chief Information Officer. The CIO is constantly challenged not only top keep abreast of an ever-changing landscape of technologies, but also to keep up with changes that affect the business as a whole. To keep up with fast moving competitors, CIOs need to ensure that their organization is increasingly agile and is able to rapidly deliver high quality, secure applications and services. But delivering in this way is not always in line with the annual budgeting process and can be especially conflicting with the fixed resources that IT has available.
