Sharding for Scale: In the App or in the Network? Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it's generally considered an acceptable trade off when searching for higher and higher scalability. While the most well-known cases of read/write separation and sharding are based on geography - east coast versus west coast, for example - there are other cases where localized sharding has also been put into play with great succes...

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Plotting the Best Course Around Multi-Cloud Adoption Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solutio... (more)

Security Considerations for API Testing | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Security

Organizations rely on APIs to share and receive information - either from a third party or between internal applications - so the level of security between these applications is critical for anyone who uses them. Earlier this year, SmartBear Software released the results of its State of API 2016 Report, which fou... (more)
