Azure has been through many rounds of changes that have significantly affected the ways in which .NET and other developers interact with the platform.
The shift in strategy has been rocky at times. In 2011, technology reviewers described Microsoft Azure as a confusing platform with a difficult to use web-based interface and incomprehensible documentation. Since then, the teams working on the platform have gradually improved it, resulting in a much more user-friendly platform that offers a well-organized array of services.
A microservice architecture provides benefits in the areas of service isolation and deployment as well as independent scalability. These benefits lead to more rapid release cycles and better use of available resources. But a microservice architecture also presents a host of new challenges in both deployment as well as performance management.
The benefits to microservices far outweigh their challenges and, by identifying them early, you can plan for and ensure that your adoption of a microservices architecture goes smoothly.
Larger organizations run into problems when monolithic architectures cannot be scaled, upgraded or maintained easily as they grow over time. Microservices architecture is an answer to that problem. It is a software architecture where complex tasks are broken down into small processes that operate independently and communicate through language-agnostic APIs.
This white paper describes how containers and microservices work, the benefits and challenges of using them, and how a unified view of the enterprise stack and effective application performance monitoring (APM) can help to fortify their benefits and address their challenges.

obile Payments have emerged as a catalyst
for transactions across all markets.
In underdeveloped markets, mobile payment
technology is enabling businesses to sell products
and services to consumers that had previously been
out of reach.
In developed markets, it has made the process of
purchasing products and services even simpler.
PayPal, one of the most popular digital payment
solutions on the market, facilitated $66 billion in
payment volume throughout 2015, and now has
188 million active registered user accounts across
the US. Furthermore, Statista projects that mobile
payments will account for more than $210 billion in
transactions by 2019.
Mobile payment technology is a step forward in
the process of connecting businesses to the people
they are serving. However, some merchants will find
themselves miles behind their competitors by the
time the transition to mobile payments is complete.
The reason? A failure to implement the correct
mobile payment strategy.

IT organizations are facing new challenges as a result of digital transformation,
widespread cloud and SaaS adoption, mobile proliferation and pervasive IoT
deployments. They must build and operate their internal data centers to deliver
high availability for mission critical applications, rapidly onboard new applications
and scale capacity on demand – all within the mandate to be cost competitive
with infrastructure as a service providers (IaaS) like AWS and Azure. They are
architecting and building new Intent-Based Data Centers to deliver private cloud
services to their internal and external customers.
This in-depth white paper explains how service providers are capitalizing on Intent-Based Networking — a new and effective networking model that provides a way of abstracting an application, feature, network, or resource in such a way that the intent is exposed, but the implementation is hidden.
AOS delivers powerful, intent-driven automation of network services in vendor-agnostic environments by delivering it as an easily consumable service in response to consumer-specified intent. Network devices serve packets, AOS services serve application workloads.
According to numerous studies, 70-80% of outages are due to configuration change applied to a living system, and not due to initial deployment. Initial, one-time deployment can be seen as sort of a “hello world” application; the real complexities arise as the system evolves. With AOS, configuration, telemetry, and expectations are derived from the single source of truth - the intent - in an idempotent fashion, and as such there is no implementation difference between initial deployment or change management.
In this white paper, John Pescatore of SANS Institute explores how DDoS is used as part of advanced targeted attacks (ATAs) and describes how DDoS detection and prevention tools and techniques can be used against ATAs as well. Today’s DDoS attacks, as damaging as they are, sometimes mask even more threatening and dangerous advanced targeted threats. The good news is that some of the same tools that can detect the footprints of DDoS attacks can also find the telltale signs of ATAs. To be successful, though, enterprises need to coordinate their use of both types of logs and adjust their monitoring parameters correctly. They must also eliminate operational gaps, such as unclear lines of security authority, and limit the use of managed security services that can deprive enterprise security managers of the data they need to detect and stop DDoS attacks and ATAs.
All enterprises need to have mitigation solutions in place. Information security is vital in the workplace and DDoS has become more complex over time. Determine whether services are the best option for primary protection through this whitepaper.
DDoS attacks are the primary threat to the availability of your network. In 2014, the number of DDoS attacks continues its trend upward in both size and complexity. Today, attacks topping 100Gbps have become common. So have complex threats such as application-layer attacks against DNS and encrypted Web services. Taxing security teams even more is the rise in multi vector attacks which target applications, existing stateful infrastructure like Firewalls and IPS devices and upstream connectivity, all in a single sustained attack.

“This market engineering study comes at a time when DDoS attacks are accelerating in purpose, sophistication, complexity, scale, and frequency.
Businesses of all size have proven to be susceptible to these attacks, and though DDoS is not a new concern, the risk of DDoS attack probability and potential for damages is at an all-time high. As a result, DDoS mitigation is a top-of-mind consideration for IT and security organizations around the world, and demand for DDoS mitigation solutions is growing rapidly.”
After a discussion of the costs of DDoS attacks and current mitigation solutions, this paper examines Arbor Cloud, a DDoS service from Arbor Networks. This Technology Spotlight also provides advice for organizations evaluating DDoS mitigation solutions.
This Frost & Sullivan whitepaper provides an overview of the latest DDoS attack trends, and offers examples of how cloud service and hosting providers can use Arbor Networks solutions to protect their data centers from DDoS attacks and increase revenue by offering Arbor-based, managed DDoS protection services.

According to Infonetics Research, the DDoS market is being driven by high visibility attacks, Internet traffic growth, enterprise, mobile and managed security services demand. Learn more with this Infonetics Research report on DDoS.
Don't ignore DDoS; instead, take preventive action. With that in mind, IDC believes that hybrid defense scenarios (on-premises equipment married with cloud services) will continue to grow as organizations seek to parry advanced application and large-scale volumetric attacks and as solution providers and product vendors work to deliver joint solutions.
The modern enterprise is dependent upon connectivity at every level. Every business initiative, whether driven by sales, marketing, manufacturing, finance, R&D or HR, is dependent upon reliable network availability and continuity. Disrupting that continuity is what Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are all about.
