This book strengthens IBM SmartCloud® solutions, in particular IBM Technical Computing clouds, with a well-defined and documented deployment model within an IBM System x® or an IBM Flex SystemTM. This provides clients with a cost-effective, highly scalable, robust solution with a planned foundation for scaling, capacity, resilience, optimization, automation, and monitoring.
This book is targeted toward technical professionals (consultants, technical support staff, IT Architects, and IT Specialists) responsible for providing cloud-computing solutions and support.
The Handbook of Research on Cloud Computing and Big Data Applications in IoT is a pivotal reference source that provides relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings on principles, challenges, and applications of cloud computing, big data, and IoT. While highlighting topics such as fog computing, language interaction, and scheduling algorithms, this publication is ideally designed for software developers, computer engineers, scientists, professionals, academicians, researchers, and students.
The pattern-based approach is a response to the need to reduce complexity in IT environments, where various skills are required to design, test, configure, and maintain integrated solutions, including clouds. IT managers spend most of their time maintaining applications and application environments, leaving little time to focus on new business needs or to adopt new technologies. As a result, businesses can lack the agility that is needed to be successful in fast-paced, competitive markets.
Pattern of expertise are designed to deliver the following benefits:
This Redpaper aims to show the value that patterns bring to IT managers and the business as a whole.
IBM Spectrum Scale includes NFS, SMB, and Object services and meets the performance that is required by many industry workloads, such as technical computing, big data, analytics, and content management. IBM Spectrum Scale provides world-class, web-based storage management with extreme scalability, flash accelerated performance, and automatic policy-based storage tiering from flash through disk to the cloud, which reduces storage costs up to 90% while improving security and management efficiency in cloud, big data, and analytics environments.
This Redguide publication is intended for technical professionals (analytics consultants, technical support staff, IT Architects, and IT Specialists) who are responsible for providing Hadoop analytics services and are interested in learning about the benefits of the use of IBM Spectrum Scale as an alternative to HDFS.
Examining Cloud Computing Technologies Through the Internet of Things is a pivotal reference source for scholarly research on the latest and innovative facets of cloud-based Internet of Things systems including technical evaluations and comparisons of existing concepts. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as fog computing, network programming, and data security, this book is geared towards advanced-level students, researchers, and professionals interested in exploring and implementing the IoT and related technologies.
This book will be of interest to scholars, educators, and practitioners alike in the fields of business management, marketing, finance, economics, human resource management, education and other related subjects, and will provide well-grounded informational material both in theory and in practice.
