MongoDB, an open-source document store and most popular NoSQL database on the market today, offers a variety of advanced features to administer security over your MongoDB deployments. In this tutorial post, we're going to show you how to set up role-based access control (RBAC) to manage user access across your MongoDB systems for reIndex, mongodump and mongorestore. If you're the administrator of your MongoDB databases, you've likely received requests to provide an individual user with the capabilities to perform a certain action(s). MongoDB's security features are fairly mature now, and allow you to create and assign very granular role-based access control. We're going to walk through an example of granting a user the specific privilege of performing the reIndex action in a step-by-step approach through its resolution. Before we demonstrate how to perform this comm... (more)

Are You Prepared for Disaster (Recovery)? | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Security

Are You Prepared for Disaster (Recovery)? By Tony Beeston There's no escaping how essential IT has become to modern business; gone are the days where corporate life can continue without its IT systems. These days, across all industry sectors, critical business processes rely upon IT, and yet we're still being met by what feels like an age-old conundrum: what awaits us in the face of a disaster? Just to be clear, when I say ‘disaster', I'm not talking about a situation that can be solved by the likes of high availability. In this case, disaster means a ‘marginally-short-of-an-apocalypse' scale incident. Simply load-balancing servers isn't going to solve this situation. Before you get too comfortable and tell yourself, "that sort of thing will never happen to me", I want to run some figures past you quickly, which have been compiled by IDG Group: 42% of surveyed comp...

The Top 250 Players in the Cloud Computing Ecosystem

In the run-up to the next Cloud Expo, 7th Cloud Expo (November 1–4, 2010) being held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley, it's time to give my earlier list a complete overhaul. Here, accordingly, is an expanded list of the most active players in the Cloud Ecosystem. I have increased it from the 'mere' 150 I identified back in January of this year, to 250, testimony – as if any were needed! – to the fierce and continuing growth of the "Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing. Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web sites of the companies themselves. Omissions to this Top 250 list should be sent to me via Twitter (twitter.com/jg21) and I will endeavor to include them in any future revision of this newly expanded rou... (more)

Top Two Technology Priorities for CIOs in 2011: Cloud & Virtualization

"New infrastructure and operations technologies such as cloud services and virtualization ... were selected by CIOs the most often and are the top-two technologies for 2011," said Mark McDonald, group vice president and head of research for Gartner Executive Programs, as the results were announced of the 2011 CIO Agenda survey by Gartner Executive Programs (EXP). "CIOs and IT have been boxed in between modest budget growth and growing legacy requirements," McDonald continued, noting that "Cloud services and virtualization are well-suited for this budget reality, as they offer similar service levels at lower budget costs." The worldwide CIO survey was conducted by Gartner EXP from September to December 2010 and represents CIO budget plans reported at that time. According to the results, CIOs expect to adopt new cloud services much faster than originally expected. Cur... (more)

To address this, I've asked Dataline partners to join me and share their views on this issue. Tactical Cloud Computing refers to the use of cloud computing technology and techniques for the support of localized and short-lived information access... (more)

Cloud Expo Europe Is Coming Back To Prague June 21-22

Where cloud computing is concerned, the Enterprise IT industry has gone from asking 'What?' and 'Why?' to asking 'How?' and 'When?' - making 2010 the year that company after company, organization after organization, and government agency after government agency is moving, or beginning its move, to the Cloud. One clear indicator of the groundswell of adoption is the increasing frequency and size of the events in the international Cloud Expo series, which recently staged a huge event in the Jacob Javits Center in New York, and which in June (June 21-22 2010, to be exact) is bringing an expanded event, Cloud Expo Europe (www.CloudExpo-Europe.com), to Prague, capital of the Czech Republic.
