The Java runtime will share features ofnbsp;Azure Functionsnbsp;such as triggering options, data bindings, and a serverless model with autoscaling.

The new support for Java is a follow-up to Microsoftrsquo;s recently announced capability for running the open source Azure Functions runtime on .Net Core, the companyrsquo;s cross-platform implementation of its .Net development platform.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
With its open source Fn project, Oracle is looking to make a splash in serverless computing.Fn is a container native serverless platform that can be run on-premises or in the cloud.
It requires the use of Docker containers.

Fn developers will be able to write functions in Java initially, with Go, Ruby, Python, PHP, and Node.js support planned for later.

Applications can be built and run without users having to provision, scale, or manage servers, by using the cloud.[ A developerrsquo;s guide: Get started with serverless computing.

Fn, as its name implies, relies heavily on functions, which are small blocks of code that generally do one simple thing.
In a function, developers focus just on just the task they want the function to perform.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Last week, the hybrid cloud landscape changed significantly.

At the Microsoft Ignite conference, Microsoft and several hardware partners announced availability of the long-awaited Azure Stack.

Think of it as a configurable rack of hardware that has a version of the Azure public cloud on it.Azure Stack is the private cloud that is on par with the public cloud First, letrsquo;s understand the value of Azure Stack.
If yoursquo;re a Microsoft shop, chances are yoursquo;ve moved to the Azure public cloud and yoursquo;re at some stage in migration.
So, if you need a private cloudmdash;for reasons of security, compliance, or the fact that yoursquo;re just not cool with putting all your data in a public cloudmdash;this technology is likely for you.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
At the heart of Microsoftrsquo;s Azure adoption strategy is the idea of the hybrid cloud, bridging on-premises datacenters and cloud computing. You donrsquo;t need to get rid of your old servers; instead, you connect them to the public cloud to take advantage of its scale and services, treating it as an extension of your existing datacenter.There are two main ways of connecting to private virtual networks on Azure: you can use a VPN over the public internet, or you can set up a direct connection into Azure data centers with Microsoftrsquo;s ExpressRoute.

For most use cases, the VPN option is the most economical because it uses your existing systems and so doesnrsquo;t require significant extra hardware or new leased lines.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Choosing the right cloud storage option is never as straightforward as you think it might be. You end up having to juggle prices, for both saving and reading your data, for bandwidth, and even for the class of server thatrsquo;s hosting your bits.

And there are different storage technology options as well.The first question you need to ask is “What kind of data am I trying to store?” Cloud services have the opportunity to step beyond the tiering model we often use in on-premises infrastructures, using storage models that are more suited to cloud applications and their particular needs.

They may look like disks to the outside world, but yoursquo;re going to be working against specialized code that wonrsquo;t offer the same features as a general-purpose disk file system.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Today’s consumers are highly reliant on their mobile applications. If apps don’t work, users won’t use them—it’s that simple. To require an Internet connection for mobile applications is to live in the past. If apps rely on a connection, odds are high that the experience will be sluggish and unpredictable.[ There’s more than one way to build a mobile app. See 25 simple tools for building mobile apps fast. | Keep up with the hottest topics in programming with InfoWorld’s App Dev Report newsletter. ]To avoid reliance on the network, providers of databases and cloud services have added synchronization and offline capabilities to their mobile offerings. Solutions like Couchbase’s Couchbase Mobile, Microsoft’s Azure Mobile Services, Amazon’s Cognito, and Google’s Firebase offer the all-important sync that enables apps to work both online and offline. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
