#cloud #devops A robust integration ecosystem is critical to prevent the PeopleSoft effect within the network In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions, where a small change at one place in a nonlinear system can result in large differences to a later state. The name of the effect, coined by Edward Lorenz, is derived from the theoretical example of a hurricane's formation being contingent on whether or not a distant butterfly had flapped its wings several weeks before. -- Wikipedia, Butterfly Effect Many may not recognize the field of IT chaos theory (because technically I made it up for this post) but its premise is similar in nature to that of chaos theory. The big difference is that while Chaos Theory has a butterfly effect, IT Chaos Theory has a PeopleSoft effect. In IT Chaos Theory, the PeopleSoft effect is the sen... (more)

Tweeps Are People Too! By @Kevin_Jackson | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

I woke up this morning to the devastating news about the earthquake in Nepal. Sitting here in California that destruction is literally on the other side of the world but my mind immediately went to thinking about my good friend Jeremy Geelan. See Jeremy and his family have been living in Kathmandu for a while now. His wife, in fact, is the Danish Ambassador to Nepal! Being a social media kind of guy, I immediately went online to see if Jeremy was active, but then the other shoe dropped. I realized that I was selfishly neglecting my global online readership! A quick look at TweepsM... (more)

New to Cloud-Based Performance Testing? By @DanBoutinSOASTA | @CloudExpo #Cloud

New to Cloud-Based Performance Testing?  Here's a Quick Language Lesson by Dan Boutin OK, go ahead… admit it. You listen to Sirius/XM Radio channels 8 and 9 only. You haven’t noticed who the president is since Bill Clinton left office. If you haven’t had your mid-life crisis, you’re thinking about having it soon.

Haiti Earthquake on Ulitzer Thanks to social media, the word got out of ravaged Haiti immediately, people mobilized and money was raised instantly.   While this isn’t the first time it’s been a vital link in a crisis, it’s invigorating how social media has woven itself into the fabric of traditional media.   There was a time, not long ago, when major news organizations relied primarily on its own news gatherers to shape the story. Now an increasing number of media is open to – and relying on – citizen journalists to tell their tales.   With buildings crumbled, roads blocked, po... (more)

IPv6 Crosses a New Line of Urgency

In an event passing nearly un-noticed, with the potential impact of a virtual asteroid slamming into the heart of Manhattan, the Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA)  without fanfare, and without understanding by most of the global Internet, allocated the final blocks of IPv4 (Internet Protocol Version 4) addresses to regional Internet registries (RIRs) during the first week of February. While the “Internet” is not in danger of an imminent meltdown, the message is clear, “get ready to adopt IPv6, the accepted successor to IPv4, or accept the reality your business is on a co... (more)
