Nanokrieg© in Cloud Computing: Battles with Micro-Second Synchronicity If we are involved in a cyber-war, where are the frontlines? Should we be spending more time (and money) in figuring out cyber-warfare, instead of conventional warfare? (Part of this article is an excerpt of Carlini's upcoming book, NANOKRIEG: BEYOND BLITZKRIEG) In the middle of World War II, very basic and primitive computers were designed to improve accuracy for naval gunfire. The first computers ran complex mathematical applications to calculate trajectories and gunfire from large battleships. The size of the computer was huge and was made up of vacuum-tube technology. You could literally walk into the computer. (And needed to, when a tube went bad and you had to replace it.) Since then, computers shrank in size and costs, but their computing power and applications to various industries grew e... (more)

Asymmetric Warfare Includes Cyberwarfare By @JamesCarlini | @CloudExpo #Cloud

This is an excerpt of some concepts from his upcoming book, Nanokrieg: Beyond Blitzkrieg, a book covering the changes in Military Infrastructure, Strategies and Tactics needed to win the War on Terrorism. It includes chapters on cyberterrorism and cyberwarfare. With the latest terrorist occurrences in Brussels, Belgium, and Paris, France, on hard targets, we tend to equate terrorism with overt acts of small groups in shootings, stabbings, and bombings of people in order to disrupt their day-to-day lives and create fear in a region's economy. This is referred to as "asymmetrical w... (more)

Intelligent Infrastructure Exposed By @JamesCarlini | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Getting a second perspective based on several decades of diversified experience can only fortify your decisions on strategically applying technology to your organization. With demands on enterprise systems changing so fast, most organizations' architectures and frameworks of Intelligent Infrastructure are in a stressful state. Many are focused on trying to maintain obsolete systems and few are willing to make a major investment in change. What was considered state-of-the-art two or three years ago can be obsolete today. With the intelligent infrastructure that is in place in a va... (more)

Iron-Clad Cloud Networks By @JamesCarlini | @CloudExpo #IoT #Cloud

Iron-Clad Cloud Networks and Defending Against Nanokrieg© Today, most enterprises have some type of cloud-based solutions or are looking at cloud-based infrastructure for some of their enterprise applications. What is lacking in many organizations is the strategic design focus and sophisticated implementation for very secure infrastructure which not susceptible to cyberattacks. Hardening data centers as well as enterprise networks (and clouds) is a critical step to ensure an organization's business continuity. Forget "disaster recovery" as it is a dated term and dated concept. Di... (more)

Twitter Infrastructure Insufficient

Was there some bias as to what got said on Twitter on the night of the debates? Twitter needs to be able to handle large volumes and if they can't, they cannot say that they are providing any accurate public barometer on something as important as a Presidential debate. On the last Presidential debate (with Crowley as moderator), I wanted to send a comment out as I was watching the debates and got tangled up on Twitter (this was about 8:50 p.m. Central Time). Evidently, the Twitter "Cloud" was deluged with tweets and they had a hard time handling it. There was a rush to submit tw... (more)
