Containers and Microservices Create New Performance Challenges
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the
need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large
monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller
agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development,
microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization
and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software
malfunction. The problem is there are a lot of moving parts in these designs;
this makes assuring performance complex especially if the services are
geographically distributed or provided by multiple third parties.
Similarly the use of containers disrupts the traditional operating system
instances used in physical or virtual ser... (more)

How the Internet of Things Will Be Realized Through the Light Bulb
One of the biggest barriers for adoption of the Internet of Things in
commercial and residential buildings is the cost of installing and
maintaining new sensors inside existing buildings. By replacing existing
lights with LED + Wireless Controls + New sensors, one can create a Smart
Building by leveraging existing infrastructure that already exists inside all
buildings. New use case includes energy management, occupancy optimization,

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of
terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way
we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being
created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized
systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional?
In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger
Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of profound change in
