5 Key Metrics For IT Success
CIO, Tuesday, February 13th, 2024

IT leaders are drowning in metrics, with many finding themselves up to their KPIs in a seemingly bottomless pool of measurement tools. The result is wasted time, confusion, and, in some cases, conflicting insights.

There are several important metrics that can be used to achieve IT success, says Jonathan Nikols, senior vice president of global enterprise sales for the Americas at Verizon. 'To name a few - products and services that are delivered on time and on budget, and overall IT ROI.' The most effective approach to achieve success, he adds, is to study metrics across all adoption performance areas. 'Metrics provide a means to monitor progress.'

Still, when all is said and done, some key metrics stand out above the rest for accurately measuring IT success. Here they are. more

CIOs: Consider 3 Best Practices When Using Emerging Technology To Achieve Business Results
TechRepublic, Thursday, February 15th, 2024

It's a great time to be a CIO. Business has never been so focused on using technology to drive growth. And technology has never been so accessible.

GigaOm Radar For Primary Storage For Midsize Businesses
StorageNewsletter.com, Monday, February 12th, 2024

Primary storage systems for midsize businesses have adapted quickly to new needs and business requirements, with data now accessed from both on-premises and cloud applications. We're in a transition phase, moving from storage systems designed to be deployed in data centers to hybrid and multicloud solutions, with similar functionalities provided on physical or virtual appliances, as well as through managed services.

The concepts of primary storage, data, and workloads have changed over the past few years. Mission- and business-critical functions in enterprise organizations used to be concentrated in a few monolithic applications based on traditional relational databases. In that scenario, block storage was often synonymous with primary storage, and performance, availability, and resiliency were prioritized, usually at the expense of flexibility, ease of use, and low cost. more

Linux containers, a form of operating system-level virtualisation technology, allow multiple isolated user-space instances, known as containers, run on a single host operating system. They provide an isolated environment for running applications, enabling developers to package applications and associated dependencies into a portable and lightweight format that can be deployed across different environments. Linux containers use a combination of kernel-level features, like name spaces and cgroups, to isolate the container from the host operating system and other containers running on the same host. This allows containers to run on any Linux-compatible host, regardless of the underlying hardware or operating system. more

Forgetting The History Of Unix Is Coding Us Into A Corner
The Register, Friday, February 16th, 2024

There are vital lessons to be learned from the history of Unix, but they're being forgotten. This is leading to truly vast amounts of wasted effort.

This article is the second in a series of pieces based on The Reg FOSS desk's talk at FOSDEM 2024.

FOSDEM is a conference all about free and open source software, and these days, perhaps regrettably, FOSS is about Unix. Increasingly, Unix today is Linux. The problem is that everyone is forgetting what UNIX really is and knowing your history is essential. As George Santayana said, often misquoted:

"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

It's often misquoted, which may be why Henry Spencer (who did the original FOSS implementation of regex) paraphrased it as: "Those who do not understand Unix are condemned to reinvent it, poorly." more

You Can't Stop What You Can't See: Addressing Encrypted Cloud Traffic
Security Boulevard, Tuesday, February 13th, 2024

You can't protect what you can't see, and the very technology that is supposed to secure traffic - transport layer security (TLS), otherwise known as encrypted traffic - is actually a perfect hiding place for cybercriminals.

As most organizations continue to operate in multi-cloud environments to keep pace with today's digital workforce, we've simultaneously seen an exponential growth in encrypted traffic, accounting for roughly 95% of all network traffic. While encryption was once created with the intent to protect sensitive data, it limits an organization's view into traffic patterns where malicious actors may be lurking and creates a more complex landscape for security operations (SecOps) teams to detect the 'needle in the haystack' and prevent a threat actor from stealing an organization's most valuable asset: its data. more
