About the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been recognized as the Racing Capital of the World since it opened in 1909 with a 2.5-mile oval track, which has played host to the Indianapolis 500 since 1911. IMS hosts four world-class racing events annually -- the Indianapolis 500 and Grand Prix of Indianapolis for the IndyCar Series, the Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series and the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, and the Red Bull Indianapolis GP for the MotoGP World Championship. The Speedway is the only track in the world that plays host to all of these series every year. The Speedway is the world's largest spectator-sporting facility, with more than 250,000 permanent seats. The entire facility spans more than 1,100 acres and includes the historic, 2.5-mile oval, an infield road course with Grand Prix and MotoGP configurations and a championship-caliber 18-hole golf course that includes four holes in the infield of the oval. IMS received the nickname "The Brickyard" after its original crushed stone-and-tar surface was repaved with 3.2 million bricks for safety reasons in fall 1909. Since then, the Speedway has been the site of countless innovations in automotive technology and motorsports safety ranging from mandatory crash helmet use to the revolutionary SAFER Barrier.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
