Last week CoolaData guys announced their platform general availability. The
following post is based on few discussions I had with the company founders.
In his 20 years of experience working in the field of data analysis, Guy
Greenberg, a co-founder of CoolaData, came to realize that there is no simple
way to work out a Big Data without turning to professional services and
integrating several systems. For instance, one might need to incorporate
Hadoop with ETL and visualization tools. However, these types of customized
Big Data projects can take months to complete, and like all complicated IT
projects, they will include a system maintenance team. CoolaData has been
built as a result of these circumstances and customizes business needs as if
they were developed in house.

2013 has been incredibly eventful for the cloud industry, mostly for making

is still relatively small, I believe it will take over the IT m... (more)
The ever-growing web as well as the `consumerization of IT` provide end users
with an abundance of options and full discretion. We now understand the vital
need to internalize the concept of spreading knowledge and information across
a variety of applications and platforms as a means to thrive. Fortunately, we
now have the opportunity to utilize multiple clouds.
There are various incentives when considering multi-cloud deployment,
including regulations, high-availability, and global presence, to name a few.
However, when looking at the main factors, two key words come to mind... (more)
I recently had a discussion with a few very interesting cloud professionals
from CloudEndure about the changes that the cloud and AWS in particular,
bring to the table in terms of business continuity and high availability. In
one of my discussions with Ofer Gadish, the company's CEO, we exchanged
information regarding the current state of the market, including tools, terms
and relevant methodologies for real cloud users. We both agreed that in this
market stage business continuity in the cloud is a very interesting subject
since the market is still young and the traditional tools... (more)
I’m OnDemand is heading to Las Vegas for Amazon’s official cloud show –
AWS re:Invent. In my honest opinion, the show is the most significant
conference in the cloud and IT industries, and includes a number of fantastic
educational sessions. To navigate the sessions, Amazon has provided
conference attendees with a great tool that helps them sort through more than
286 sessions (up from 150 last year).
Looking through the list of sessions (the schedule builder is very useful), I
quickly discovered that trying to figure out which ones to attend was not as
easy as I’d though. I fou... (more)
