A Customer Case Study on Big Data Product Benchmarking executed by Zeptoh

WANdisco Fusion and Cloudera BDR are two of the leading companies solving the most demanding business challenges with data. They provide the necessary capabilities to ensure that the data is available at all times, even in the face of the complete shutdown of a data center. They enhance collaboration and increase productivity for businesses across the globe.

Appvance wanted Zeptoh to setup a Data-center cluster using IBM Softlayer and Amazon AWS. IBM Softlayer machines were physical and were used for functional testing, whereas Amazon AWS 16*16 clusters were setup for performance testing.

Zeptoh built all the clusters from scratch on both IBM Softlayer and Amazon AWS. Zeptoh did the functional and performance testing comparing WANdisco Fusion and Cloudera BDR. There were Functional Test cases involved in comparing the active replication technology of WANDISCO to the Cloudera’s BDR. Performance test cases compared the active replication of WANdisco Fusion to the passive replication of Cloudera BDR. The team executing this project included 3 architects. 3 developers, 2 testers and a project manager.

Google announces Brillo – targets IoT

Google is rejoining the Internet of Things platform wars. Today at its Google I/Oconference, the company announced Brillo, the “underlying operating system for the internet of things,” with a developer preview coming in Q3 of this year. Brillo is “derived” from Android but “polished” to just the lower levels. It supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy, and other Android things.

Additionally there’s Weave, the (cross platform) common language that will let Brillo devices, phones, and the internet all talk to one another — that’s coming in Q4. Android devices will auto-detect Brillo and Weave devices. Here’s a helpful chart to explain the relation:


Up until this point, Google has been somewhat quiet on its smart home / internet of things plans — especially since the company acquired Nest early last year. The name Brillo was mentioned last week in a report from The Intercept about Google developing software that can run on very low-power devices and communicate with other connected devices nearby.

Startup city in focus – Chennai: 9 startups to watch out from Chennai

Chennai has always been known for its automobile and IT industry. The cultural capital of the south sees a presence of a major part of India’s automobile industry.

Apple Acquires Augmented Reality Startup Metaio


To bolster its virtual reality and augmented reality efforts, Apple has acquired Metaio. The company’s site has stopped taking new customers, and now a legal document confirms Apple has acquired it.

However, Apple didn’t confirm the news from its own side. It rather  gave its usual statement  toTechCrunch saying, “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and it generally do not discuss their purpose or plans”. Metaio posted on its site that, its products and subscriptions are no longer available for purchase. Email tech support will continue until June 30th.

It has 1000 customers and 150,000 users worldwide in 30 countries.

Founded in February 2013, Metaio is a technology company that develops augmented reality software technology and solutions. It is based in Germany, headed up by Co-founders Thomas Alt as CEO and Peter Meier as CTO. The firm has worked with over 140,000 developers and counted BMW, Audi, and furniture retailer Ikea among its clients.

The company had produced an app for Ferrari that gives a potential buyer, an AR tour of the car. The company also developed a “Time Traveler” app to let visitors to the Berlin Wall experience the historical site through the years.

Apple is also working on augmented reality for its Maps, as per a report by 9to5Mac’s Marc Gurman.

Augmented Reality space is flourishing at the moment , and it has been adopted by many other tech industries too. Even Google took an attempt  with Google Glass headset, and from AR it also tried its hand at VR with Google Cardboard – a DIY project that allows users experience virtual reality using nothing but their smartphone and a cardboard box. Earlier this year, Microsoft had announced VR headset with augmented reality capabilities- Hololens with applications ranging from 3D design to gaming, office use, and home repair guidance. With all these actions happening in this segment, the consumers can brace themselves for something big coming up.

The IoT Revolution Promises New Challenges for IT

Another disruptive trend, another set of headaches for IT.

The Internet of Things (IoT), spurred by the arrival of inexpensive storage and better chipsets for connectivity, promises a future where Internet smarts extend far beyond the familiar realm of smartphones and computers.

Familiar devices and things never before associated with having Internet intelligence  – items like homes, railways, buildings and bridges – are now able to monitor, communicate and respond when their environment changes. And with more machines talking to each other through IoT connections, companies have a trove of new information at their disposal to analyze.

The potential is huge: The McKinsey Global Institute predicts that IoT may add between $2.7 trillion and
$6.2 trillion to the world economy annually by 2025.

The success of this emerging IoT ecosystem will depend upon a robust cloud infrastructure managing all these new sensors, devices and data. As more companies seek to connect existing infrastructures to IoT-enabled devices, they will turn to public and hybrid clouds to help manage and scale their systems. The right cloud offering will let companies store and process the IoT data they collect and attach rules and structure to that information for later consumption.

However, IoT’s speed of adoption also presents myriad new security and platform issues that IT will need to navigate as more businesses make the transition to the cloud.

Indeed, the sheer scale of IoT is creating an “attack surface” of unprecedented size given the proliferation of connected assets and devices – a change that presents new potential headaches for IT because of the variety of platforms and protocols now involved.

Anything that is controlled by a computer can be maliciously controlled by somebody who has compromised that computer, or, in many cases, is simply able to interact with it. And it doesn’t take much of a pessimist to imagine at least some of the ways that things could go wrong, either intentionally or deliberately. Vulnerabilities have already been identified (and widely publicized) for a relevant, representative class of devices, such as smart TVs, IV infusion pumps, pacemakers and the electronics systems of automobiles, just to name a few.  With a trillion devices, the network becomes especially porous, so there is certainly plenty to worry about.

What’s more, the vast majority of devices that aren’t phones, laptops or tablets don’t receive updates automatically, and in many cases it isn’t even possible for end users to update device firmware themselves.

As always, the challenge for IT is to to figure out how to handle these security updates seamlessly. If past is prologue, these growing pains promise to be part of yet another transitional phase in the disruptive history of technology.
