1) Accelerated, error-free builds
Agile development creates more frequent builds. A CD platform that optimizes and parallelizes large builds across hundreds, or even thousands of cores is good. A solution that automatically detects dependencies to eliminate broken builds is even better.
2) Faster feedback
You shouldn’t have to wait until builds or tests are 100% complete before receiving feedback. A CD platform that allows real-time drill-down into warnings and errors as they occur give helps eliminate wasted time and CPU cycles.
3) Bulletproof and painless processes
CD isn’t continuous if jobs in flight are lost when a CI server goes own; or when it takes days for QA machines to be provisioned; or when deployments fail because of differences between QA and production. A CD platform should automate and normalize the build, test and deploy process across ANY environment (public, private or hybrid) with 1-click simplicity.

Organizations are turning to leverage big data and analytics to ‘look’ for indicators of intent or indicators of compromise, thus helping organizations focus their security resources on the threats at hand. The challenge though is how to process the vast amount of data, and furthermore, keep it relevant, timely, actionable – contextual. The challenge becomes harder when threat actors utilize a variety of techniques to maintain anonymity, reduce their ‘fingerprint’ and mask their intent.
In this webinar, Adam will share how Akamai leverages the vast amount of data that it sees daily to help its customers improve their security decisions, when the threat would otherwise be unclear. John will showcase how Akamai’s big data and analytics platform, Cloud Security Intelligence, powers its Client Reputation service. A service that provides the ability to forecast intent and protect applications against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and application layer attacks, and how active defence can be applied to a variety of response mechanisms, delivering an intelligent contextually aware defence.
To say ransomware is a growing threat is an understatement. While there is no foolproof way to prevent an attack, there are measures you can put in place to better defend against this new and very destructive type of malware. Join Syncplicity’s Senior Director of Cloud Security and Compliance, Brian W. Levine, as he outlines why Syncplicity should be an integral part of your plan to prevent and recover from an attack, and how we can help you avoid paying the ransom.

NFS has been the “go to” file system for large data stores but there is a new offering on the horizon...Object Storage. To help ease the transition, many Object Storage vendors have provided a gateway that allows their systems to look like NFS servers. The problem is that most of these implementations are very limiting and often create more problems than they fix. In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Caringo will discuss why object storage systems are the heir apparent to NFS servers and how to make that transition without the typical roadblocks that NFS gateways create.
