Abiquo Already Has What Other Cloud Management Players Are Just Adding

Recent commentary confirms how far ahead Cloud management innovator Abiquo is of the rest of the pack

Abiquo Keynote at Cloud Expo

A recent online commentary confirms how far ahead Cloud management innovator Abiquo is of the rest of the pack.

Announcing how the Enterprise Edition of Eucalyptus was this week joining forces with GroundWork, a news and analysis site acknowledged that the Eucalyptus/GroundWork alliance was a response to the convincing lead already established by Abiquo.

"Very shortly, Eucalyptus will have a full-featured private cloud technology with all the things an enterprise needs: policy management, monitoring, fast simple delivery and scalability. Of course, Abiquo already has all that." [emphasis added]

This was a reference to how Abiquo's AbiCloud project became earlier this year the company’s flagship Abiquo product, with a Community Edition focusing on the open source community and an Enterprise Edition to meet the needs of commercial organizations.

The Abiquo solution does indeed already have everything that Eucalyptus/GroundWork have now added.

In under two weeks' time, Abiquo's CEO Pete Malcolm (pictured) will be keynoting at Cloud Expo in New York, at which time he will be sharing with delegates his vision of the next chapter in The Virtualization Story - what it means, why open standards are key, and most importantly, how it will revolutionize the way organizations manage IT.

This month @nodexl announced that ServerlessSUMMIT & DevOpsSUMMIT own the world's top three most influential Kubernetes domains which are more influential than LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Medium, Infoworld and Microsoft combined. NodeXL is a template for Microsoft® Excel® (2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016) on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10) that lets you enter a network edge list into a workbook, click a button, see a network graph, and get a detailed summary report, all in the familiar environment of the Excel® spreadsheet application. A collection of network maps and reports created with NodeXL can be seen in the NodeXL Graph Gallery, an archive of data sets uploaded by the NodeXL user community.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to more fluid ones, we gain agility at the cost of control. But where do we want to keep control? How do we take advantage of all these new changes without losing the ability to efficiently develop and ship great software? And how should program and project managers adapt?
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
