2013 middleware predictions by Red Hat's Craig Muzilla. This post originally

Last year, I offered my thoughts on trends and developments that the market
would see in 2012. At that time, I felt that we were looking at a continued
emphasis on cloud, while mobile and backend integration technologies would
rise in prominence within enterprise IT. I think the industry made progress
in all three areas: analysts indicate huge adoption of mobile technologies as
a substitute for what would have typically been a laptop or desktop computer;
at Red Hat we saw an uptick in interest around some of our backend
integration tools like rules-based processing and business process management
(BPM); and the industry as a whole saw a solidification around cloud visions
and roadmaps from vendors.
One area that turned out to be much bigger than I had anticipated... (more)
My working title was Big Data, Storage Dilemma.
They say dilemma. I say dilemna. I'm serious. I spell it dilemna.
Big Data presents something of a storage dilemma. There is no one data store
to rule them all.
Should different data structures be persisted to different storage mediums?
Identifying the appropriate medium is a function of performance, cost, and
Random Access Memory
It's fast. Very. It's expense. Very.
If we are configuring an HP DL980 G7 server, it will cost $3,672 for 128GB of
memory with 8x 16GB modules or $9,996 for 128GB of memory with 4x 3... (more)
Last October I published a post that identified the features that both JBoss
Data Grid and Oracle Coherence provide (link). My goal was to establish a
baseline for the features that a data grid should provide. It was not to
state that one data grid was better than the other. Little did I know an
Oracle employee would respond by attacking Red Hat, its engineers, and
It is fear? Is it hostility? I don’t know.
I have engaged in discussions with competitors before. Roman and I engaged in
a competitive discussion in response to one of my posts comparing IBM
WebSphere and JBo... (more)
This introduction has been setup to get you started as quickly as possible
with the newest member of the JBoss Integration portfolio, JBoss A-MQ which
will be available very soon. We have put together a three part video tour of
the product, an example quick setup of the product and the installation of an
existing project that is then deployed on JBoss A-MQ.
The project was existing work done by Charles Moullaird, a brilliant
consultant that has done many projects using this technology.
Part I – introduction
This is a very quick and dirty introduction to the JBoss A-MQ product and ... (more)
First things first, all data is more or less structured. That being said,
Structured Data Semi-Structured Data Unstructured Data
I tend to think of it as: data, composite or simple, with or without content.
In that context, email is structured composite data (from, to, subject, date)
with unstructured content (message body). The composite data is structured.
The content is unstructured. Though simple data may or may not be structured.
The ‘subject’ data is unstructured. The ‘to’ data is structured. It
is composed of a local-part (username) and a domain.
While content is... (more)
