CoreOS Adds Azure Support to Tectonic

CoreOS Adds Azure Support to Tectonic

Container management vendor CoreOS releases an update on the Tectonic platform--- Tectonic 1.7.1, adding support for the Microsoft Azure cloud to the Kubernetes-based open-source system.

Tectonic 1.7.1 follows the June 2017 release of Kubernetes 1.7, and adds the latest version of "pure, upstream" Kubernetes. Kubernetes was initially a Google open-source project, before it was taken over by the Linux Foundation's Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in July 2015. It started off as Linux-only, but found its way to other platforms, including Microsoft Azure, through the efforts of organisations such as CoreOS.

“We want to make Microsoft Azure the most open and flexible cloud for enterprises and ISVs to build and manage the applications their customers need,” Microsoft says. “Tectonic on Azure is an exciting advancement, enabling customers to use CoreOS’ enterprise-ready container management platform to easily manage and scale workloads to build and manage these applications on Azure.”

Oracle Releases Exadata on Bare-Metal

Oracle changes its attitude towards Exadata database-- now customers can access Exadata Cloud on bare-metal servers available through Oracle datacentres.

As a result, customers get an own dedicated database appliance in the cloud, instead of running the database in a virtual machine. After all, bare metal means dedicated hardware, which should increase performance. One can allocate all the CPUs and storage they require, and can integrate the cloud-based database with on-premises Oracle databases, making it easy for either a transition to the cloud or a hybrid cloud strategy.

Qualtrics iQ Brings Predictive Intelligence to CX Masses

Qualtrics reveals its predictive intelligence and machine learning service-- Qualtrics iQ, an IBM Watson-style cloud-based service capable of deep statistical analysis and predictive recommendations.

iQ is available to individual CX (customer experience) practitioners, and designed for non-technical line-of-business users. As such it eliminates time-consuming, manual data processes, and does not require tasks such as sorting through open text feedback, complex statistical analyses and identifying key drivers deep in data. The UI is drag and drop, making advanced features easy to use, even for new users.

The platform consists of 3 components-- Text iQ (uses natural language processing and machine learning to analyse open text feedback and surface trends in data), Driver iQ (identifies key experience drivers deep in data) and Stats iQ (provides automated and instant data analyses, with no need to for data exporting or massaging).
