The following are a few  Big Data companies that I was keeping an eye on starting back in January of 2015  (yeah, this is NOT a statistically significant sample)....some for "old times sake" because I knew the founding team and was curious how things were progressing, some because I trust their venture capital partners, and some because they inspire me with an application of the technology that is meaningful (I'm tired of hearing about yet another "Big Data Platform").

Safely Expanding Access to Applications

The industry often talks about how the data center perimeter is expanding,necessarily, due to technological shifts such as cloud and mobility and BYOD.  But that isn't really the case. If you look closely, you'll see that the perimeter is actually shrinking, getting tighter and tighter around the data center. With just about everything web-enabled these days, the need for access to network to enable access to applications is, well, nearly gone. I can as easily share a file via a web-enabled application today as I could by copying it onto a network share using a VPN last year. With mobile devices inside the corporate walls as well as out, it's no longer effective to just implicitly trust what's on the local network. And that's indicative of a shift that's been occurring for years, but has really taken off with the introduction of mobile devices - and which will acce... (more)

DevOps as a Service (DaaS)? | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

May 11, 2014 DevOps as a Service (DaaS)? In a recent post I posted on DevOps.com, I suggested the term DevOps as a Service (DaaS). Personally I am not a fan of the term. Mainly because DevOps is not a ‘Service’. It is an approach to achieve business objectives by adopting a set of capabilities, namely: Continuous Business Planning Collaborative Development Continuous Integration Continuous Deployment Continuous Testing Continuous Feedback Adopting these capabilities requires changing or enhancing people (culture), processes and technology (tools). Hence, not a set of services, but a set of capabilities. That being said, the tools the make up the proverbial DevOps toolchain are tools. These tools can be hosted and made available ‘as a service’. Could these collectively be called ‘DevOps as a Service’? IBM DevOps Services IBM has recently introduces exactly that – De... (more)

Google and Hortonworks Team Up: HDP Now Part of Google Cloud

By Charles Hall Hortonworks' Hadoop Data Platform (HDP) is now a supported feature on Google Cloud.  This new feature will allow dynamic provisioning of HDP clusters on the Google Cloud Platform, providing scalability for enterprise-wide solutions employing HDP, as well as providing a means for rapidly setting up prototyping and development environments.  Part of the solution utilizes Apache's Ambari plugin, along with scripting developed by Google and Hortonworks, to enable easy provisioning. Highlights of the engineering work include integrating “bdutil”(command-line script used to manage Apache Hadoop instances on Google Compute Engine) with the Apache Ambari (Hadoop management project) plugin to provision and manage infrastructure, and a Google Cloud Storage connector for HDP, Ajay Singh, director of technical channels at Hortonworks, wrote in a blog post abou...
