Scalable MicroService Architecture

Application State Management and Data-Driven Decision Making As the complexity of applications and systems increases, the size of the teams that work on these also increase. In these scenarios, having the system as a monolithic one inhibits the development team from being able to move forward at speed. This gave rise to the need for [...]

Database Technology in a Blockchain World

It’s just about official—blockchain has taken over the world. Or, to be more accurate, the idea of blockchain has taken over the world. In recent months, we’ve seen Long Island Iced Tea Corp. become Long Blockchain Corp. and Kodak revive itself with blockchain aspirations. These unexpected moves led to some head scratching, but also to […]

Microservices – What CSPs can Learn From IT

CSPs are in a critical period of transformation right now. Omnipresent connectivity is driving new disruptive business models which are further driving up demands on the networks. Virtualization of appliances and systems is seen as a necessary step to add the agility to meet these increasing and evolving service demands. As vendors and CSPs are […]

Key Considerations for a Modern Database to Operate at Scale

Modern applications have two primary needs: performance and ease of operations, both at scale. Performance The performance consists of two aspects: throughput and latency. Both are driven by applications becoming machine-driven i.e. API-driven. Humans will wait much longer than an API will since APIs have strict latency expectations due to timeouts. When you take a […]

Keeping up with Header Bidding’s performance requirements

Pretty much anyone who knows adtech will tell you that header bidding is the future of the industry. Header bidding allows publishers to field ad bids in the header of a webpage, which is before anything else (including other ad placements) loads. This allows publishers to establish a “premium” auction instead of the typical real-time bidding […]

Latency: Will it undermine the most interesting 5G use cases?

One of the big topics at the OpenStack conference was how to prepare and implement a successful transition to 5G. Unfortunately, this means that the age-old Telco bugbears will rear their ugly heads again, including latency. 5G, as a fundamental requirement, mandates a 1 millisecond latency from the datasource to its destination. Currently, most applications […]

Why Telcos Need a Real-Time Analytics Strategy

Historically, telco analytics have been limited and difficult. Telco networks and the systems that support those networks are some of the most advanced technology solutions in existence. The performance requirements for telco networks are staggering – the ability to process millions of transactions per second, the ability to manage billions of events per day, and […]
