Many companies or institutions still possess legacy non-x86 systems in their datacenters: mainframe, midrange, or UNIX proprietary systems. Migrating these workloads across hardware architectures to the AWS Cloud requires advanced software technology. Short-term migration approaches mainly use hardware emulation, middleware emulation, automated refactoring, or middleware replatforming. This post highlights short-term migration options, their key technical differences, as well as their differentiated benefits.
IBM Maximo is an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution that helps organizations manage their assets, track operations, and perform preventive maintenance using predictive analysis and enterprise-ready features.

Learn how Mission Cloud Services helped Your Call Football (YCF) scale their application by building out the infrastructure as code, determining the right instance type for the job, prepping the load balancers, and employing Amazon EKS. By leveraging Kubernetes to optimize the speed and performance of YCF’s cloud environment, the app successfully provides thousands of football fans with a fun, unique, and issue-free gaming experience—all in real-time.
Automatic software patching is not yet seen as a security benefit, even though out-of-date software is the cause of many recent cybersecurity failures. As companies and their staff become more security-aware and, in some cases, legally accountable for security breaches, system administrators are starting to see automated Linux kernel live patching as the missing link in their system security profiles. Despite the disadvantages, a system with live patching is safer than one without.
In a SaaS environment, the compute, storage, and bandwidth resources are often shared among tenants, but this makes it challenging to deduce per tenant cost. A SaaS application running on a Kubernetes cluster on AWS adds a layer of further complexity as far as calculating the per tenant cost. Kubernetes is great at abstracting away the underlying pool of hardware. It almost gives us an illusion of having access to a single large compute resource.
Improving Application Performance with No Code Changes Using Heimdall’s Database Proxy for Amazon Redshift
Rewriting an application code for performance optimization generally requires a significant amount of effort. Also, IT and development groups using third-party applications like Tableau may not have access to the application code. Heimdall’s database proxy solution offers a flexible and cost-effective alternative to rewriting your application for performance and scale. Heimdall transparently provides SQL control and visibility to the application owner without (re)writing a single line of code.
