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)

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)

Intelligent Infrastructure Defined By @JamesCarlini | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Global Net Superiority: Intelligent Infrastructure Defined "In order to move forward in applying and maximizing new technologies, everyone involved in real estate, infrastructure, technology, and regional economic development needs to get on the same page in defining basic concepts like infrastructure." - James Carlini Today, more organizations are looking at new technologies and applications for their operations. There is a convergence of industries that were thought to be independent which are now interdependent. What is missing is the ability to find common ground in definitio... (more)

Cloud Computing: Network Janitors

If Cloud Computing is going to be part of the critical network infrastructure of an enterprise, senior executives better realize that no technology runs by itself. You need people that are very skilled in all aspects of planning, designing, implementing and managing these systems. There are dynamic people and there are also caretakers that can only do minimum maintenance on systems. The idea that you can run Cloud Computing applications with a bare minimum of skilled people is a nice sales pitch, but in reality organizations better make sure they have skills on staff or skills r...

Mobile Wallets: The Latest Digital Bling

In this acute age of class warfare, elitism, and social media tools, somewhere in the middle of all of it, the retail and financial services industries are spawning the latest "Must-have" digital bling: mobile wallets (or digital wallets). Will credit cards become a thing of the past?  Will retailers pull away from all the transaction fees they have to pay on credit card purchases and go to a smartphone app-based transaction model instead? What about other payment processors like PayPal, Google, and others? These are some of the strategic questions starting to pop up across diffe... (more)
