With the staggering commitment of almost every big name in the industry to OpenStack since last few years, it has slowly and steadily captured the cloud market off late. Research from Tesora, an opensource database as a service provider suggests about 15% were running private clouds on VMware software closely followed by 11% using OpenStack.
Opensource is the name of the game since a decade and why not. Joining this trend is Tesora, provider of an open and scalable database as a service (DBaaS) platform on OpenStack. Tesora has announced today that the source code of company's previously proprietary database virtualization engine (DVE) would be made available for free.
A publicly available dashboard showing which infrastructure vendors’ products are compatible with a particular OpenStack cloud release is something that is quite handy to refer to at any given point.
It's a big call to redesign your product or service to its core to create something of much bigger value. This is exactly what LoadStorm has done and has created its next generation load testing product which is enterprise grade, cloud based, economical and lean.
Icehouse is now live. The ninth release of OpenStack dubbed Icehouse is now available for use. Stability, easy upgrades and install, optimized object storage, a new Database as a service integrated, improved user experience holds key to this release.
Heartbleed has become a superhero and super villain at the same time. Hero because it has received so much publicity that no other vulnerability has ever received. Villain probably is more apt due to the devastating impact it has once a website is impacted using this OpenSSL bug.
Tesora, provider of an open and scalable database as a service (DBaaS) platform on OpenStack, announced the refined Tesora Database Virtualization Engine and established a new customer performance benchmark, posting an 80-fold increase in capacity while providing a dramatic reduction in latency.
There are many questions and posts that i have been through on if testers role has diminished with agile mode of delivery coming into play and if agile teams should be capable of not just developing but testing their code. While this may sound great in theory, my experience working with developers and software testers tells me testing is a skill and cannot be left to a team of developers to test their code.
Performance testing as everyone acknowledges, should no longer be an optional or an after release activity. The enterprises I have worked through have definitely realized this but still seem to commit some basic mistakes surrounding baselines, timing of planning for performance test and many others. LoadStorm team have joined us to air out few common mistakes that enterprises commit doing their performance test of their products or applications.
