IT Security and Data Volume and IoT

In this post, I explore two additional questions relating to IT and the Internet of Things (IoT): The security implications for IoT and the best way to consolidate, store and analyze the large volumes of data generated by these devices. Last week, I explored some of the broader IT implications of the IoT, specifically, the impact on existing networks as well as standards that are helping to ensure interoperability. I began the series with an introduction to the topic.

Getting Ready for Tomorrow's Cryptography Demands

A comment from a reader (thanks again) reminded me about the compile/build option of no OpenSSL or libreSSL. And as he comments, this does simplify the maintenance of OpenSSH - one less library to support.

Leveraging SSDs and IASPs with BRMS Migration

One significant change in IBM i 7.2 is the modernization of storage tiering in the BRMS migration function. In prior releases, the migration function in BRMS works only for library migration between auxiliary storage pools (ASPs) based on the specified policies for frequency of use. However, in IBM i 7.2 with PTF SI57831 applied, the BRMS migration function is enhanced to support the migration to independent ASPs (IASPs), migration of *LNK lists for IFS files, and migration of database files to different SSD and HDD storage tiers within the same ASP.

Follow up on IBM i Strategy Comments

One of the best things about the world of blogging is that the readers of a blog have a chance to comment on the subject. In the past year, several posts have generated significant comments, and even discussions between commenters. This was the case for my previous post, where I discussed part of my approach to IBM i strategy—the need to focus on more than one aspect of the user base with our strategic decisions.  Several readers took time to write thoughtful responses. I read each of them, several times. I truly appreciate the effort and time it took to write those comments. And after reading them, I decided a follow-up to my previous post would help continue the discussion.

DB2 Certification Preparation for IDUG NA 2016

It's not too early to plan on attending IDUG DB2 Tech Conference in Austin, Texas, May 23-26. If you are going to the conference, you should consider taking a DB2 certification test. One of the great benefits of attending IDUG is that IBM sponsors up to two certifications to help attendees get certified for DB2.
