The cloud, mobile applications and big, fast data are fundamentally changing how applications are built and modernized today. To speed this transformation at the enterprise level, Pivotal, the new venture by VMware and EMC, will host a live streaming event on April 24th at 10:00 am Pacific/1:00 pm Eastern with a special announcement and an unveiling of its plans to build “A New Platform for a New Era”.
The Pivotal platform will unite data, application, and cloud fabrics, helping enterprises to develop faster, understand more, and succeed at an even greater scale. It is a platform that makes the consumer grade enterprise a reality.
Paul Maritz, the Pivotal Leadership Team, and special guests will unveil this platform, and make a special announcement during a live streaming event on Wednesday, April 24th at 10:00 am Pacific/1:00 pm Eastern.
Social media, mobile devices, and an ever-expanding commercial world wide web have transformed our culture to an always-on, always-connected, and increasingly impatient creatures. As a result, how applications deal with data management is probably the area of computing that has undergone the most change in recent years. It’s undergoing a renaissance, if you will.
Traditional relational database management systems (RDBMs) are being replaced by new, in-memory data systems that deliver high performance and can scale-out horizontally quickly to meet the needs of the next Facebook, Netflix, or Pinterest application that shines in the market.
In an upcoming webinar, VMware will show you how you can use vFabric GemFire to transform your data management strategy to achieve the speed, scale and reliability that internet pioneers have been trusting us to do for years. We’ll also cover some of the recent advancements, including how GemFire 7 makes managing and monitoring your GemFire data much easier, and how Spring Data GemFire project makes writing new modern applications easier than ever before.
As we’ve previously covered, data growth is quite unbelievable, and this means traditional database models are being stretched. On Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at 9:00 AM PST, VMware’s Joe Russell will be presenting on several topics related to Big, Fast, Flexible Data and how VMWare’s key data management technologies help companies overcome some of the key challenges with traditional RDBMS.

If you follow this blog, you know we keep hearing people talk about simplicity when discussing app servers and architectures. We certainly heard this at JavaOne and also at VMworld, but it’s been popular for a while.
The fact is that traditional Java EE (JEE) app servers bring complexity to the mix. In addition, they are costly and consume a lot of resources. Forrester wrote Continue reading →
