"We selected Appnomic's award-winning solution when looking for a way to prevent major operations and business disruptions with limited additional cost to our business, all while extending the level of service to our employees," said Mike Johnson, senior director of IT at CPP, Inc. "Appnomic's preventive approach to service delivery was a key competitive differentiator behind our decision, that coupled with their strategy of leveraging various software tools for high-quality service, and their prior client experience."

Appnomic's technology enabled RIMS+ solution delivers enterprise grade data center and internal IT management outsourcing with automation and service improvement project (SIP) implementations. RIMS+ is differentiated by SLA-based service delivery that uses Appnomic's OpsOne automation software platform, AppsOne IT Operations Analytics software, and other client-requested tools and systems. Embracing "technology enablement," Appnomic provides quick and efficient resolution of IT incidents and requests, enabling important productivity benefits and lowering the total cost of IT operations.

"Appnomic is pleased to serve as an extension of the talented IT team at CPP," said Ray Solnik, president of US operations at Appnomic Systems. "The preventive bias of MTTP (More Time To Prevent) operations ensures that routine IT maintenance and support tasks are implemented with an eye towards preventing future issues, reducing fix-it work and wasted resources. By using Appnomic's RIMS+ services, CPP internal IT staff can focus more on productivity and unique ways to leverage their deep knowledge of the CPP business and systems, rather than working on 'graveyard shifts' to accomplish daily, routine IT operations tasks."

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility.
The Kubernetes vision is to democratize the building of distributed systems. As adoption of Kubernetes increases, the project is growing in popularity; it currently has more than 1,500 contributors who have made 62,000+ commits. Kubernetes acts as a cloud orchestration layer, reducing barriers to cloud adoption and eliminating vendor lock-in for enterprises wanting to use cloud service providers. Organizations can develop and run applications on any public cloud, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Red Hat OpenShift and Google Cloud Platform.
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
With container technologies widely recognized as the cloud-era standard for workload scaling and application mobility, organizations are increasingly seeking to support container-based workflows. In particular, the desire to containerize a diverse spectrum of enterprise applications has highlighted the need for reliable, container-friendly, persistent storage. However, to effectively complement today's cloud-centric container orchestration platforms, persistent storage solutions must blend reliability and scalability with a simple, cloud-native user experience. The introduction of Elastifile's CSI driver addresses these needs by augmenting containerized workflows with highly-available, scalable NFS file storage delivered via Elastifile Cloud File System...and with no complex, manual storage provisioning required.
Applications with high availability requirements must be deployed to multiple clusters to ensure reliability. Historically, this has been done by pulling nodes from other availability zones into the same cluster. However, if the cluster failed, the application would still become unavailable. Rancher’s support for multi-cluster applications is a significant step forward, solving this problem by allowing users to select the application and the target clusters, providing cluster specific data. Rancher then initiates deployment to those clusters.
