Summary

The US reinsurance segment incurred substantial losses during the review period as a result of the occurrence of a series of natural disasters such as Hurricane Gustav, Hurricane Ike, the ice storm in New England in 2008, Northeast ice, snow and blizzards in 2010, tornado outbreaks in Alabama and Joplin, floods in Mississippi and Hurricane Irene in 2011.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
