Couple blogs/weeks ago, I posted What’s in Your Smartphone? covering the recent Nielsen report, State of the Appnation – A Year of Change and Growth in U.S. Smartphones.   According to the study, 70% (last year) and 73% (this year) expressed concern over personal data collection and 55% were cautious about sharing location info via smartphone apps so, obviously, it is important that users are aware of the risks they face when downloading and using apps.  So it is perfect timing that I came acros...
#cloud #byod #mobile #devops If there’s a difference between cloud and traditional app delivery from the end-user perspective, you’re doing it wrong. There seems to be a growing disconnect between reality and hype, fueled by the rainbow and unicorn dressing that’s been applied to cloud computing . The latest craze is to make reference to a “cloud delivery model” and almost always attached to BYOD and cloud computing. Generally such references take the form of:       “Thanks to the cloud de...
Survey says…and many companies believe that moving architecture, resources or other IT infrastructure pieces to the cloud will save them money.  That’s been one of the biggest selling points of cloud computing – pay as you go, metered service, pay what you use – the internet as a utility offering.  And while simple deployments can be cost effective, complete architectural maneuvers often put pressure on the cloud’s main value proposition according to a recent Information Week article.Burning thr...
Das diesjährige Thema des VMware Forums trifft den Nagel auf den Kopf. Bring you own Device ist das derzeitige Top-Thema, denn in vielen Gesprächen mit den CIOs dieser Welt hören wir immer wieder, was für eine Herausforderung es für Unternehmen ist, Anwendungen mobil und sicher auszuliefern. Dazu soll das Ganze auch auf teilweise privaten Endgeräten, wie etwa Tablets oder Smartphones ausgeliefert werden, was zu einem großen Sicherheitsrisiko werden kann. Das Interesse wäre nicht so groß, wenn ...
After a week of travel wherein I was lucky enough to rub elbows with many an end user, I'm back with more DevCentral goodness. Technology really is ubiquitous, by enlarge, and no matter where I go around the world I find people dealing with awesome, interesting solutions or problems. This latest trip was no different, and hearing how many of my fellow geeks out there make use of DevCentral to solve said problems or help envision those solutions is just...awesome. It has me reinvigorated (okay ma...

Zwischen Hackern, BSI-Kundschaftern, Heise Redakteuren und Spezialisten zur Mobile Security sind wir von F5 Hauptsponsor auf der Heise Security Tour 2012 durch 4 Städte Deutschlands. Hauptthema ist dieses Mal: Mobile Security -Die Smartphone-Herausforderung meistern. „Was macht Ihr denn hier?“ ist eine oft gestellte Frage an F5. Auch ich frage mich, ob ich wirklich wissen muss wie man in maximal 10 Minuten jedes iPhone knackt, warum Remote-wipe eine zwar oft verlangte, aber total unnütze Angel...

More from Adrian Bridgwater, his post this time related to Google's SPDY protocol, for which F5 has just announced a gateway for.  More about Adrian can be found at the end of this post. He can be found in many places online, including Twitter and at ComputerWeekly.com. Thanks for contributing Adrian! Which direction is SPDY shooting off in? As an “experimental protocol” for faster web networking, SPDY (pronounced speedy) has been primarily developed by Google thu...
#ado #fasterapp #webperf The “all of the above” approach to improving application performance A few weeks ago (at Interop 2012 to be exact) F5 announced its latest solution designed to improve application performance. One facet of this “all of the above” approach is a SPDY gateway. Because of the nature of SPDY and the need for a gateway-based architectural approach to adoption, this piece of the announcement became a focal point. But lest you think the entire announcement (and F5’s entire s...

Zusammen mit rund 200 CIOs und IT-Leitern habe ich zwei Tage auf der hochkarätigen business factors CIO Tagung auf Schloss Bensberg verbracht. Ratet mal was das heisseste Diskussions-Thema war? Bring your own Device - ByoD. Das heißt, Security und Hochverfügbarkeit von mobilen Anwendungen und das dazugehörige Nutzerverhalten ist eines der wichtigsten Themen, daß CIOs derzeit beschäftigt. CIOs zwischen "verbiete ich ganz konsequent" und "mein Mitarbeiter kam neulich mit seinem neuen Tablet, ...
While traveling and talking about iRules, I come across a wide variety of topics that people are looking to address. From security offload to custom routing to just about anything you can think of. This week, while out and about at User Groups, I was presented with a problem to solve that was interesting. I ended up white board solving the problem in front of the group, and wanted to share it here as well, as I'm confident others may run into similar issues in one way or another. The particular...
