Ensim App Manager 2.0 - Building on its deep Active Directory management capabilities for enterprise deployments, Ensim has incorporated additional AD management functionality into its multi-tenant platform for both service providers and their customers. Service providers can connect any AD enabled application such as Accounting, CRM, ERP, etc. and automatically activate it for the customer to assign roles and users. Orders, provisioning, usage collection, and billing are fully automated and SSO is provided to the target applications from the Ensim portal.

Ensim Active Directory Sync Manager 2.3 - Ensim has also updated its AD sync tool with many new features that extend the customers ability to have their on-premise AD securely sync to and control their AD tenant on the service providers hosting platform. Fine grain control over sync schedules, users, and attributes as well as support for the latest encryption technologies are built in for maximum security.

"Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) increasingly require robust, integrated and flexible marketplace and orchestration software to deliver multi-tenant and hosted private cloud solutions that integrate with customers' existing IT infrastructure. Ensim's continued investment in enabling hybrid Active Directory deployments, Microsoft's unified communications portfolio and service management of Office365 and Microsoft Azure addresses the strong demand from CSPs who are looking for solutions that can assist them with launching new cloud services and new hybrid-cloud capabilities," said Scott Ottaway, vice president of services research at 451 Research.

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform....

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations?

Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in.

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality.
