CIOs say the main reason for moving to cloud computing is the innovation and agility it brings, but others see it as a cost-cutting exercise
Big data technologies and practices are moving quickly. Here’s what you need to know to stay ahead of the game…. With so many emerging trends around big data and analytics, IT organizations need to create conditions that will allow analysts and data scientists to experiment. “You need a way to evaluate, prototype and eventually integrate some of these technologies into the business,” says PwC’s Chris Curran.
Many successful application programming interface initiatives start with the goal of unlocking data that is protected by traditional Web or perimeter-based access controls. Although those back-end applications were designed to address a business problem, over the years they have evolved into monolithic, complex and unmanageable applications.

Dynomite has the potential to offer server-based sharding and replication for any datastore, as long as a proxy is created to intercept the desired API calls.This initial version of Dynomite supports Redis and Memcahed sharding and replication in clear text, backups and restore. In the next few weeks, we will be implementing encrypted inter-datacenter communication. We also have plans to implement reconciliation (repair) of the cluster’s data and support different read/write consistency setting, making this an eventually consistent datastore.
