Hybrid Cloud Event Integration: Integrate Your Enterprise and Cloud with Bluemix Integration Services
Application Platform

Redbooks, published 12 Feb 2016, last updated 18 Feb 2016

The event-centric hybrid cloud integration revolves around applications running based on events or messages. The new event-centric approach to hybrid cloud aims to simplify the task of managing these messages while increasing the overall reliability of the system. Event-centric applications work well in the cloud due to the varying intensity and frequency of events. These fluctuations fit well into a cloud infrastructure that can dynamically scale to fit those needs. An event-centric approach cuts down on communication overhead for an application, thus helping to speed up the development ... [more]

Always On: Considerations When Adopting the Cloud
Cloud

Redguide, published 13 Oct 2015

As organizations look to differentiate in the marketplace, they are increasingly shifting their focus to the cloud as a preferred model for developing and hosting their solutions. The use of application programming interfaces (APIs) in the API economy is accelerating the rate by which organizations can deliver their solutions. Although the business value of the use of cloud computing and the API economy can be understood, the operational requirements to realize the business value are not understood; specifically, the operational expectation of the cloud being Always On. We assert that ... [more]
