Three open-source partners and a wedding: A groundbreaking keynote at Red Hat Summit | #RHSummit by Marlene Den Bleyker | Jun 30, 2016 As the day two afternoon keynotes commenced at the Red Hat Summit 2016, held in San Francisco, partnership and collaboration were the themes. Industry leaders for SparkFun, Cisco Systems, Inc. and Accenture, LLP spoke about their open source stories. At the conclusion of the presentations, the audience was also surprised with a partnership of a different kind: A surprise wedding on stage. Create openly Nathan Seidle, founder and CEO of SparkFun Electronics, Inc., was the first speaker up during the keynote. His company is an online retailer of electronic parts for people to use to build their own products, but the true goal is to promote inventing in an open-source environment. Seidle begins by telling the audience that the ideas of patents are costly and expensive. As an electrical engineer, he said he would rather create and share ideas to make products better. “I don’t have the time, money or really stomach to go litigating all over the world,” he said. Seidle is also one of the founding Board members of a movement called the Open Source Hardware Association, a neutral forum for discussion of open-source hardware. Next up was Dave Ward, CTO of Engineering and chief architect at Cisco Systems, who has been collaborating in open-source networking and working with Red Hat for the past six years He noted that open source is critical for success and innovation in technology, stating that Cisco has integrated open source into its portfolio. It has also helped contribute back to move the industry forward. Ward outlined his work on creating a network platform that is easier for developers to use. “The target assumption of the application developers in the audience is that ‘For the love of God, can infrastructure just do what I need it to do? And do I need to know everything about the orchestration just to get my job done?’ And we’ve been spending a lot of time trying to make that happen,” Ward said. He stated how it is impossible for the whole stack to fit in just any one individual’s head, so it’s hard to get their job done. His argument is that the world should have a no-stack developer. The target the project is trying to reach is to have developers work in an application PaaS view. Enabling a culture for open source Sven Loberg, managing director at Accenture, LLP, was the final presenter during the keynote. His talk covered three areas: open-source innovation, examples of partnering, and community engagement and contribution. Like all the speaker before him, he felt that open source contributes to innovation within the entire industry, and he outlined what his company is doing to enable open-source contributions. He said the key enablers for open source at Accenture are to be community driven on an internal level. The company’s Inner Source platform hosts more than 3,000 active projects at Accenture. The company also updated its open-source policy to make it easier to contribute. Its community is also on GitHub for more visibility and openness with the community, and it enables them to blog about the projects going on. Lastly, the company took open-source governance one step further by adding Black Duck Software to enhance open-source security and management. Loberg said that it is important to contribute in order to bring diversity and different points of view, which create more value to the project and the community. Accenture is expanding its work in open source to give back to the community. A true partnership first After the presentations, there was one more demonstration to take place. Marriage as a Service. Paul Cormier, EVP of Engineering and president of Products and Technologies at Red Hat, presided over the wedding of Shannon Montague, an American sign language interpreter, and Matt Hargrave, a senior Linux engineer with GM Financial, a groundbreaking event in Red Hat keynote history.

Alex ‘Sandy’ Pentland on Enigma using the Bitcoin blockchain to compute with secure data | #MITCDOIQ by Kyt Dotson | Jul 22, 2015 With a name like Enigma readers would be right to suspect that MIT was working on something used by a super villain, of course the premise of the project is to make everyday people smarter and safer. Alex “Sandy” Pentland, the Toshiba Professor at MIT, advises the Enigma project which uses the Bitcoin blockchain to securely track encrypted data so that it can be processed without revealing the underlying raw information. Today at the MIT CDOIQ Symposium Petland spoke with Dave Vellante, co-founder of Wikibon, and Paul Gillin, SiliconANGLE enterprise editor, about the capabilities and the scope of the Enigma project during a visit to theCUBE, operated by SiliconANGLE Media. Pentland said that people correctly feel paranoid that their data given to companies may be leaked, especially personal or sensitive data. The problem is that a great deal of sensitive data is extremely important to providing better services to people. A noteworthy example is medical or financial data. “All lot of it has to do with safe sharing,” explained Pentland. “Another aspect of this problem is security. We are getting an increasing amount of attacks on [sensitive data]. Bad for companies. Bad for people. It’s just going to get worse.” The answer he posed is “data is encrypted all the time everywhere.” Enigma works by making sure that data can still be processed without ever being shared with anyone who shouldn’t have access to it. A problem arises is that bad actors tend to attempt to short circuit security measures or reveal the underlying sensitive data, and this is possible because at some point that data needs to be processed in order to produce actionable results. MIT adapted the Bitcoin blockchain technology to build Enigma, which grabs data in its encrypted form, processes it while encrypted, and then shares it only in its encrypted form. The idea is to use the blockchain to form a sort of consensus on who can view what based on the distributed ledger. For further details on how Enigma works, MIT has published a whitepaper [PDF] outlining the technology and the technical aspects of its implementation: A peer-to-peer network, enabling different parties to jointly store and run computations on data while keeping the data completely private. Enigma’s computational model is based on a highly optimized version of secure multi-party computation, guaranteed by a verifiable secret-sharing scheme. For storage, we use a modified distributed hashtable for holding secret-shared data. An external blockchain is utilized as the controller of the network, manages access control, identities and serves as a tamper-proof log of events. Security deposits and fees incentivize operation, correctness and fairness of the system. Similar to Bitcoin, Enigma removes the need for a trusted third party, enabling autonomous control of personal data. For the first time, users are able to share their data with cryptographic guarantees regarding their privacy. A beta version is also launching soon and signups to be part of it are available on the Enigma website. Vellante described Enigma as a “distributed black box” and not a “walled garden,” nobody has direct control of the entire system, even though everyone can see the entire system. It is through the distributed ledger that trust can be devised between multiple partially-trusted entities (using the Bitcoin blockchain) in order to provide a consensus agreement to who has access to what. How do you solve the problem of performing calculations on encrypted data? Since Enigma proposes that all data is encrypted all the time, Gillin asked how the system manages to process data without ever decrypting it. The ability to perform calculations on encrypted data without revealing it is a holy grail of computational systems, and it is very difficult to do without revealing too much about the underlying raw data–point in fact, knowing enough about it would essentially be decrypting it. Pentland explained that it uses old techniques that have been around for a long time but have poor scaling capability and has trouble tracking data in a secure manner. He explained that the first part was solved by multi-scaling that is inherent to the technology and the second is fixed by the Bitcoin blockchain which allows for tracking and validating the information without revealing the underlying data. @theCUBE #MITIQ

(18:07) Track List created with http://www.vinjavideo.com. --- --- Harvard Business School professor reveals the secrets of successful negotiation | #NEXTConf by Brittany Greaner | Jun 22, 2016 What lessons can we learn from the world’s oldest-known peace treaty? Deepak Malhotra, Harvard Business School professor and Board of Advisors at Nutanix, Inc., would argue there are plenty of lessons to be found in such an ancient document. 3,000 years old, the Treaty of Kadesh was between the Egyptians and the Hittites. When comparing the Hittite copy of the treaty and the Egyptian copy of the treaty, you may find items standard of a peace treaty, but you’ll also find one stark difference. The Egyptian treaty claims that the Hittites came asking for peace first; the Hittites say it was just the opposite. This, Malhotra said, is key. Malhotra spoke to Stu Miniman (@stu) and Dave Vellante (@dvellante), cohosts of theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, during the Nutanix .NEXT Conference. The key in successful negotiation in business is understanding how humans function. No one wants to lose face. Both sides need to declare victory. “When you recognize they want to save face, you can change how you do things,” and it changes the way you approach making a deal, said Malhotra. Knowing this, you can figure out a way to show how both sides are winning. The deal doesn’t have to be lose-lose, he added. Negotiate value instead of price It’s also important to get the economics right and have a reasonable price. But you often have to face some psychological hurdles that businesses often don’t prepare for. If you’re doing something entirely new, no matter the genius behind it, it can be hard to convince people it’s worth the investment. If they don’t use something similar now, why do they need it? The business needs to show why it’s worth it, and that can often be done through testimonials. “The worst mistake salesmen make is to apologize about a high price,” Malhotra said. Instead, show them the value and the list of people who have already decided to buy in. It will show faith in your product and confidence in the value you’re providing. Changing the world Malhotra is looking to continue utilizing his negotiation expertise to research and work toward solutions for ethnic conflict, improve doctor-patient relationships, and find out whether or not mass shootings have impact on gun laws.

Adam Fuchs, CTO and Co-Founder of sqrrl, discusses how to bring structure to noSQL database environments in this whiteboard session hosted by Wikibon's Dave Vellante. NoSQL continues to gain adoption, primarily due to the need for it in corporate daily operations and the freedom it provides compared to the rigid schemas associated with relational technologies. That's the big picture from Coucbbase, which today announced the results of a survey it did with 1,300 practitioners. Couchbase is one of the leading vendors in the NoSQL market so it's not a big surprise to see them publish these rosy results. But the finding do speak to the overall transformation of the database market and the roaring plume of data that is shaping a new tech landscape. I agree that NoSQL has moved beyond the experimentation phase. In part, you can thank Oracle for that. The fact they jumped into the market has given customers more reason to invest more capital into the technology. It's a validation point. Here are some of the results from the survey: Nearly half of the more than 1,300 respondents indicated they have funded NoSQL projects in the first half of this year. In companies with more than 250 developers, nearly 70% will fund NoSQL projects over the course of 2012. 49% cited rigid schemas as the primary driver for their migration from relational to NoSQL database technology. Lack of scalability and high latency/low performance also ranked highly among the reasons given for migrating to NoSQL (see chart below for more details). 40% overall say that NoSQL is very important or critical to their daily operations, with another 37% indicating it is becoming more important. Couchbase asked how companies are using NoSQL Some interesting answers included that go beyond the traditional use cases: real-time tracking and segmentation of users for ad targeting disaster recovery inventory tracking manufacturing automation insurance underwriting multi-call center operations (with replication of production data) Twitter stream analysis Respondents were also asked about what they expect and hope for out of NoSQL in 2012. Couchbase breaks down what they say into four boxes: schemas; replacing RDMS/making it default database; scalability/performance and speed/agility in app development. Answers included: Gaining freedoms from inflexible schemas that do not adapt well to changing business requirements. Making NoSQL an integral part of daily operations and handle at least 30% of transaction load. Allowing the capability to share billions of documents across multiple commodity servers. Help in deploying new features faster without having to manage SQL patch scripts and migrations. ServicesAngle NoSQL -- it fits with so much that we write about. It's a huge factor in the transformation of the enterprise and a necessary focus for any services provider looking to provide a level of value added services.

James Hamilton, AWS, at AWS Re:Invent 2013 2013 with John Furrier and Dave Vellante ames Hamilton, VP & Distinguished Engineer for Amazon Web Services, discovered the potential of Amazon in the world of cloud services when he realized how it could improve customers’ experiences and results, as he explained in an interview with theCUBE co-hosts John Furrier and Dave Vellante, live at AWS re:Invent 2013. “I saw opportunity to improve by at least a factor of 10,” Hamilton said. After the S3 announcement, “I started running apps against it, saw it was super reliable. This is the beginnings of when I knew this would change the world.” The evolving landscape of the data center Commenting on the statement that in data center costs, the top expenses were servers, cooling power, and power itseff, Hamilton agreed that servers dominated, followed by power for cooling, and then actual power. Furthermore, the dominant cost of offering a service was that of the facility itself with “will run two million before there’s service in it. If you build a lot of data centers, you get good at it.” AWS data centers are very reliable and “costs are plummeting fast,” another added benefit for customers being that they “don’t need to predict years in advance what we need.” Asked through CrowdChat about the impact of ARM in the data center, Hamilton said “I am super excited about ARM, it’s early days. I love seeing lots of players, I love seeing lots of innovation.” ARM isn’t just about every device everyone is carrying around, it’s broadly deployed. AWS is interested in ARM, “we are investigating deeply,” but, Hamilton stated, “at this point it hasn’t happened yet.” Discussing how splitting workloads up changed utilization factor, Hamilton said that the price price performance of microservers got exciting in 2007 when “it was easy to produce a win. There are lots of parallel workloads where there is room for a big gain.” As far as Spot instances’ role in helping create the world’s most cost effective super computer, Hamilton explained, “I am super excited by Spot,” it was one of the reasons he joined Amazon. “It’s taking the ideas from financial markets when you have high value assets. Poor utilization is the elephant in the room.” Only 15-20 percent or server capacity is generally used. 70 percent is wasted. Spot works to avoid such wastage. Hamilton agreed however that Spot is not recommended for every scenario. “Workloads that don’t operate well into an interrupted environment should not be run in Spot.” Asked to comment on commodity networking and merchant silicon, Hamilton said the whole industry had needed network commoditization for 15 years. Cost is falling everywhere, except networking. “It’s really changing the Amazon business and what we can do for customers.” Discussing specialized software and running general purpose processors, Hamilton explained that “today in AWS we run tens of thousands of copies of a single type of server. Now we’re pulling more down into the hardware and do more customization for our customers.” “One of the problems when you’re building a server, is it could end up anywhere,” Hamilton said. The servers have to be designed with huge headroom on cooling requirements. “We take a different approach.” They work on the assumption that they go to good data centers and build servers that run in them. Asked what the next big thing in the large scale paradigm of computing and computer science was, Hamilton said it was power distribution, with “tons of work going on in the field.” Networking was another area seeing a lot of action. Discussing the issue of version control and completely updating the stack, Hamilton stated it was “super important form a security perspective that the code be updated and current.” Also from a customer point of view, this process has to be non-disruptive. “We monitor the heck out of our system, our goal – we need to know any issue before the customer knows it.” Asked to share his opinion on make vs buy, Hamilton said “it changes every few minutes. Years ago, when I joined the comp, we were buying servers from OEMs. Now we have our own, custom designed. Now server components are customized for us. Every year it’s a little more, it’s specialized.” “I know exactly how much infrastructure we put everyday,” he added, the number is mind boggling. “Every day we deploy enough servers to support a 7 billion dollar company. My definition of scale changes every day.” Asked to create a bumper sticker text for this year’s re: Invent event, Hamilton chose “It’s real, baby!” @thecube #AWSreinvent

Why Infrustructure-as-a-Service is critical to innovation | #OOW by Teryn O'Brien | Sep 21, 2016 Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offers organizations multiple benefits in the cloud, including dynamic scaling, a lower total cost of ownership and flexibility, among many other benefits. So, as more businesses search for IaaS solutions, Oracle has rounded out its product offerings in this area to include bare metal cloud servers and enhancements to its Oracle Cloud services. Don Johnson, VP of Engineering at Oracle, spoke with John Furrier (@furrier) and Peter Burris (@plburris), cohosts of theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, during Oracle OpenWorld 2016 to talk about the importance of IaaS. The importance of IaaS for innovation There’s basically two strata of cloud, according to Johnson. The cloud platform and everything up above (apps, etc). “IaaS is a fundamental and foundational building block — and all of the characteristics that everything up above relies on or requires is basically enabled by infrastructure,” he said. A company either has infrastructure or they don’t. For Oracle, there is no option but to invest in the cloud, according to Johnson. Innovation requires it for success in the future market. “We’re a cloud platform company; this is a foundational piece,” he emphasized. “We’re pursuing this very progressively.” The importance of IaaS for enterprises “If you have … a large existing infrastructure and deployment — typically on premise — you have a lot of constraints,” explained Johnson. “And it’s difficult to actually move into this new environment and take advantage of all that it has to offer.” Oracle has identified a number of areas that it wanted to do better in its Cloud services: security, reliability, governance, performance, the ability to harness modern technologies and, most importantly, flexibility. “A core thing that we did … is the virtual network,” Johnson said. “And we made a fundamental choice that the way in which we’re gonna do the virtual network is to pull the virtualization into the network itself where we think it belongs.” RELATED: Art meets Big Data: How DreamWorks is utilizing analytics in modern animation | #SeizeTheData This means that Oracle is able to plug anything into a virtualized network for enterprises, giving customer bare metal compute. “That was key design criteria,” Johnson added. The design is much more friendly to any large enterprise or business that is “outside of the sweet spot of what an infrastructure like, let’s say, Amazon was originally designed for.”
