Axis for Business: Axis Telecom launches free broadband for life offer

Axis, the UK’s leading business telecoms and utilities provider, is launching a free business broadband for life offer today, to help SME businesses reduce their costly office overheads.

Axis for Business has been operating since 2001; building a company that supplies a full utilities provision to SMEs and larger companies within the UK. The offer of free broadband for life could potentially help businesses reduce operating costs.

The offer is open to all Axis for Business’ new customers. New customers will be rewarded with 12-month free broadband initially. And, by referring just one business to Axis, could see them enjoying free broadband for life for their business. Axis for Business also invested in a unique customer referral program, Get Ambassador. This gives its customers the opportunity to become brand ambassadors, allowing them to earn savings for their own business, while assisting Axis for Business, with its own growth strategy. David Meyers, Managing Director of Axis says of the offer: “Axis for Business has been providing value telecoms and utilities for business for many years.

We appreciate funds can be tight for some during this tough economic climate; all businesses have to do is to refer new business to us, then they get to enjoy at least £264* savings a year on overheads. “We are aiming to differentiate ourselves in the market and grow our market share by using our customer base to refer other businesses through referral marketing.” Axis for Business is aiming to get their customers connected, who might be switching from the main broadband providers. It is also predicted that businesses moving premises, will be attracted to the offer, as it will hopefully help avoid the lengthy delays that occur with some providers, where companies are often left waiting weeks for installation of broadband. Start saving now with Axis for Business, visit for more information or call the customer service team at 0800 2889 430. *£264 is in comparison with BT phone line and broadband service.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, al...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...
IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting.

Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete en...
Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration. Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.

There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
