Jogl and Java 3D | @CloudExpo #Java #Linux #IoT #IIoT #AI #SmartCities
The State of Java Graphics Libraries

Deployment Methodology

1. Problem Statement

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rather long.

The novel javapackager command (included in the JDK versions 8 and 9), produces the program installation packages in the range of sizes from 57 to 202 Megabytes approximately.

2. Motivation

We have a long history of making use of Java 3D applications in the software engineering community. Since the introduction of Java 3D in 1998, a number of open-source projects have sprung up to help preserve it (including Jogl). These projects were needed because the Sun Corporation's development of Java 3D had discontinued in 2004. At that point, it was released as a community-driven open source project. By 2008, Java 3D was put on hold in favor of the JavaFX framework with 3D support. JavaFX contains many proprietary software components whose code has not been released to the public. Moreover, switching from Java 3D to JavaFX is generally accepted as non-trivial.

There are now approximately 10 million Java developers. ("The 2009 Global Developer Population and Demographics Survey, conducted by Evans Data Corporation, reports the Java-developer population equals 9,007,346.") If just 1% are using Java 3D and must rewrite their code as a result, that is 100,000 impacted developers with programs of unknown sizes.

I possess 493 java files in my 3D project with 42,936 lines of code for an average of just over 87 lines per file. If each of the Java 3D developer's code exhibits just 1% of my project's file size, this implies the 429 lines of code times 100,000 developers or almost 43 million lines of code. If it takes just $15 to write a line of code, (some estimates are as high as $40) the costs are between the $645 million and the $1.7 billion dollars [Koopman].

3. Approach

Our approach to the deployment of the new Java 3D libraries is to create a single extension to the JNLP resources, called the "jogl.jnlp". This deployment strategy makes a direct reference to the bundled native libraries as well as the Java 3D jars. The listing of the "jogl.jnlp" file follows: 

<jnlp spec="1.0+" codebase="http://show.docjava.com:80/book/cgij/code/jnlp/">

<jar href="libs/jogl/jogamp-fat.jar" download="eager"/>

</resources>

<component-desc/>

</jnlp>


The j3dcore.jar, j3dutils.jar, and vecmath.jar are pure Java code. They compose the Java 3D library. The required native methods (JNI) for the standard platforms (Windows 64, Windows 32, Linux 64, Linux 32, and the Mac) are all found inside the jogamp-fat.jar library. A JNLP file that launches a Jogl application follows:

<extension name="Java3D" href="jogl.jnlp"></extension>

<jar href="joglquad.jar"/>

</resources>

<application-desc main-class="j3d.JOGLQuad"/>

</jnlp>

Here we present the common extension for Jogl support, <extension

name="Java3D" href="jogl.jnlp"></extension>. This extension enables
the common deployment strategy to all Java 3D and Jogl based programs.
Furthermore, critical to the proper operation is the j2se tag.

<j2se version="1.8+" initial-heap-size="64m" max-heap-size="384m" java-vm-args="--add-exports=java.base/java.lang=ALL-UNNAMED

--add-exports=java.desktop/sun.awt=ALL-UNNAMED

--add-exports=java.desktop/sun.java2d=ALL-UNNAMED"/>

The "--add-exports" is a part of the new-style module arguments. For example:


--add-exports=java.base/java.lang=ALL-UNNAMED

follows the pattern:

--add-exports <source-module>/<package>=<target-module>

where <source-module> is "java.base", <package> is "java.lang" and <target-module> is "ALL-UNNAMED". The "ALL-UNNAMED" enables all modules to access all classes in java.lang. In the case of legacy code, all the modules will be unnamed.

The extension loading may be perceived as a separate program that the user needs to allow to run immediately after the first part of the program has been deployed to the user's platform.

As WebStart applications must be signed before the modern Java will run them, I have authored a collection of articles that guide the reader through the signing process [Lyon, 2004a, b, 2008].

The signed jar files are all available from tinyurl.com/signedJars.

A deprecation warning has been announced for the JNLP deployment in the future release of JDK. "Java Applet and WebStart functionality, including the Applet API, The Java plug-in, the Java Applet Viewer, JNLP and Java Web Start including the javaws tool are all deprecated in JDK 9 and will be removed in a future release." [http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/9-deprecated-features-3745636.html]

The open source WebStart replacement IcedTea offers further options to run the JNLP files and the application itself in the sandbox even if the application is signed with a trusted certificate. IcedTea offers the optional safety limitations of the application's functionality. The following two pop-up windows captured in the OpenSuSE Linux demonstrate this aspect of the user's experience.

Figure 1. Security Approval Dialog

Figure 2 - IcedTea Warnings, JNLP file execution

A developer working in Windows with Oracle JDK 9 and the standard WebStart, has the option to decrease the local security by adding an exception in the Exception Site List, part of the Configure Java panel. The local security exception for the "file:/" protocol should be entered, which allows the execution of any local self-signed jar files during the development phase - the least security level allowed by the WebStart in JDK 9.

The series of commands required for self-signing follows.

keytool -genkey -keystore myKeystore -alias myself

keytool -selfcert -alias myself -keystore myKeystore

keytool -list -keystore myKeystore

jarsigner -keystore myKeystore test.jar myself

A JDK 8 keytool requires an upgrade by issuing a single-line command:

keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore myKeystore -destkeystore

myKeystore -deststoretype pkcs12

The Mac and Linux users may encounter a bug - the Oracle Java control panel window may refuse to show itself and disallow adding any security exception in this manner.

The JNLP deployment is a delicate matter that takes into account the Manifest attributes, deployment rulesets, and signing. Developers may benefit from writing the JNLP files manually as shown because the various integrated development environments do not produce the JNLP files accurately enough.

4. Results

We have been able to deploy to the Windows 7, Windows 10 and the Mac platforms. The WebStart applications that utilize the Java 3D library are available free to run at the author's web page (http://www.docjava.com). The binaries for deployment are the easiest way to reproduce the results and are available from the author's website. To view the results of the work without running any code, there is a YouTube video available at tinyurl.com/j3dAndJogl.

Appendix A. Problems and Workarounds

The Impending Java 3D End-of-Service?

With the arrival of JDK 9, most developers have noticed that their programs do not function anymore. If your program utilizes the Java 3D library (j3dcore.jar, j3dutils.jar, and vecmath.jar), the program depends on the Jogl library as well. You can find the Jogl library in the jogamp-fat.jar file. Please obtain the standard versions of the library files from:

https://jogamp.org/deployment/jogamp-current/fat/ https://jogamp.org/deployment/java3d/1.6.0-final/

Both libraries were made with older versions of JDK and can be compiled with JDK 8 (v1.8.152) nowadays.

If you initially succeed running your program under the JRE 9, you may notice a series of warnings such as these:

WARNING: An illegal reflective access operation has occurred

WARNING: Illegal reflective access by javax.media.j3d.JoglPipeline (file:/ j3d/j3d-core/build/jars/j3dcore.jar) to method sun.awt.AppContext.getAppContext()

WARNING: Please consider reporting this to the maintainers of javax.media.j3d.JoglPipeline

WARNING: Use --illegal-access=warn to enable warnings of further illegal reflective access operations

WARNING: All illegal access operations will be denied in a future release

These warnings cannot be removed, but they will not prevent you from running your program either. In the case of JNLP deployment, the particular VM arguments are necessary:

--add-exports=java.base/java.lang=ALL-UNNAMED

--add-exports=java.desktop/sun.awt=ALL-UNNAMED

--add-exports=java.desktop/sun.java2d=ALL-UNNAMED

These arguments do not change the way the program executes otherwise, as in the case of a program running as an executable jar file.

Reportedly, you may encounter such warnings when you refer to or otherwise use a field, method, or a class in the Java runtime library that has been marked as private in some sense or that is disappearing due to the JDK redesign or code deprecation. Let us consider a sketch. You may wish to list the loaded native libraries by using the command

LIBRARIES = ClassLoader.class.getDeclaredField("loadedLibraryNames");

Seemingly, there is no private field access involved here and accessing one in a trivial manner would be impossible by design. However, as you follow the line of code execution, you will discover that you are trying to get the list of loaded libraries from the private static Vector<String> loadedLibraryNames in the ClassLoader class. This methodology of listing the loaded native libraries functions well, but it will not function in the future.

If you want to redesign the Java 3D library to compile under the JDK 9, you may do so quickly by erasing a few functionalities that raise critical errors. For example, you would need to remove the references to the package sun.applet. If you wish to solve the next 100 warnings as well, the amount of rewriting required is much higher. It is faster to compile it with the JDK 8 and include the library as such in your application. Still, the problems lurk ahead.

Your Java 3D program will require a few tweaks to get going.

System.setProperty("sun.java2d.noddraw", "false"); System.setProperty("sun.awt.noerasebackground", "true");

You may use the Swing framework and display the graphics contents in a JFrame, but you cannot use the JavaFX.

If you want to display the progress of the native libraries loading, you should tweak the Jogl library.

System.setProperty("jogamp.debug.JNILibLoader", "true");

The native libraries are unpacked and loaded from the temporary directories, so embrace yourself for the lengthy output.

The chances are that the current versions of Java 3D 1.6 and Jogl 2.3.2 (Oct. 2015) won't allow you to use them on the Macintosh computers with the JDK version 9, and on certain Linux computers, notably on the VMware virtual machines (depending from the specific hardware details) due to the Mesa graphics driver-related bug. The libraries can run on the Windows 10 computers with JDK 9, on the Ubuntu 16 distributions with the Oracle JDK 9, and so forth.

By extensive testing, we came to notice the possible workaround for the bug that affects the Macintosh computers so that now they should be able to run the Java 3D and Jogl libraries in the Java 9 runtime environment. The Jogamp community (that maintains the Jogl library) has suggested the Mesa driver-related bug fix for the next release of the Jogl library.

Avoiding the GLCanvas-related JVM Crash

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

# SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00000001190a80cc, pid=49353, tid=775

# JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (9.0+11) (build 9.0.1+11)

# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (9.0.1+11, mixed mode, tiered, compressed oops, g1 gc, bsd-amd64)

# Problematic frame:

# C [libosxapp.dylib+0x20cc] -[NSApplicationAWT sendEvent:]+0x179

The error shown above occurs on the Macintosh computers featuring the latest version of the MacOS X as well as the earlier editions, given that these computers have the Java 9 installed and your application uses the Java 3D and/or Jogl libraries. One might assume that the Java AWT (Abstract Window Toolkit) contains a bug, but the explanation is largely incomplete. You could setup your environment (i.e. execute this command in the terminal) to print the AWT debugging info:

export JAVA_AWT_VERBOSE=1

Nonetheless, you will not be able to properly run and debug the program. We cannot claim who is responsible for the bug ultimately, but it is possible to point at the Jogl library usage.

Let us consider a Java class JoglTest that implements the GLEventListener from the package com.jogamp.opengl. Any such class needs to implement the necessary methods that draw graphics visuals to a GLCanvas. We shall ignore the details and focus on the Frame or JFrame to which we add the GLCanvas in order to display the graphics animation.

GLCanvas canvas = new GLCanvas();

JFrame jFrame = new JFrame("Jogl Drawing");

Animator animator = new Animator(canvas);

canvas.addGLEventListener(new JoglTest ());

jFrame.add(canvas);

The problem occurs at the very moment when you close the Frame or JFrame. The default on-close operation is hide-on-close, which does nothing particularly useful anyways. You need at least to set the exit-on-close operation.

jFrame.setDefaultCloseOperation(WindowConstants.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);

If you close the jFrame, you crash the JVM 9. Further, the typical usage scenario is to attach a window adapter to the Frame or JFrame that stops the animator and disposes the window.

jFrame.addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter() {

@Override

public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e) {

animator.stop();

jFrame.dispose(); // JVM 9 CRASH

}

});

The code above makes the previously mentioned exit-on-close operation irrelevant and shows where the JVM crash occurs specifically. Therefore, in order to avoid the crash, you need to eliminate the command jFrame.dispose() and replace it with the command to exit the program altogether, System.exit(0).

Seemingly, without any negative effect, we allow the user to use the application safely and exit. It is safe to assume that there is a memory leak associated with the step in which we avoid disposing the jFrame. Disposing the window can still be performed on the computers other than the Mac.

if (!System.getProperty("os.name").toLowerCase().contains("mac os")) jFrame.dispose();

Next, the developers should avoid any similar situations in which the frame may be disposed of.

Minimal Corrections of Java 3D Library

When you use the Java 3D library, the presence of the Jogl bug is much more cryptic to read from the error output. In order to initiate a Java 3D application, developers needs to create a GraphicsConfiguration by using the template known as the GraphicsConfigTemplate3D.

GraphicsConfigTemplate3D tmp = new GraphicsConfigTemplate3D();

GraphicsConfiguration graphicsConfiguration = getLocalGraphicsEnvironment()

.getDefaultScreenDevice().getBestConfiguration(tmp);

The JVM 9 crash occurs when trying to obtain the graphicsConfiguration, in the second line of the code shown above. The bug can be further traced to the GraphicsConfigTemplate3D class in the package javax.media.j3d. There, a single line causes the crash.

GraphicsConfiguration graphicsConfiguration = (GraphicsConfiguration) testCfg;

Next, we can trace the bug in the JoglPipeline class in the package javax.media.j3d, in the method:

GraphicsConfiguration getBestConfiguration(GraphicsConfigTemplate3D gct, GraphicsConfiguration[] gc)

in the line canvas.doQuery(). Finally, in the doQuery() method we can see the two lines of code that exhibit an immediate effect on the JVM 9 crash.

context.destroy();

nativeWindow.destroy();

Removing these lines of code annuls the crash. In addition, the JoglPipeline class contains another potential source of crash, the line glContext.destroy(), which we can remove as well.

You can download the Java 3D library with these minimal changes included, from the http://www.docjava.com web site. You can search for the comment lines that contain the warning: "Potential JVM 9 CRASH occurs here on MacOS" to guide yourself to the locations of interest.

The package jogamp.opengl in the Jogl library contains the class GLContextImpl that implements the method destroy(). The Java 3D library calls this method when the crash occurs, so if you omit the method, you avoid the crash.

However, the details remain fuzzy. The method can run in its entirety without causing any crash in a test program that does not use the Java 3D library. At startup, the method runs once on the main thread. When the window is closing and specifically the method dispose() is invoked, the JVM crashes. Prior to the crash, the method destroy() prints a message claiming that it ran again on the AWT-EventQueue-0 thread. Further testing will be required.

Notes on Building Jogl and Java 3D

The instructions for building Jogl can be found at the following address.

http://jogamp.org/gluegen/doc/HowToBuild.html. Compiling the project on Windows may prove to be flakey. Use the MinGW-W64 compiler version 4.9.x as the starting point. The Gluegen project may require you to run the ant process twice to get through the dll test error. The Jogl project may require you to have a newer compiler such as the gcc x86_64-win32-sjlj-rev1 7.2.0 due to the missing include files. A Cygwin's version of the same compiler just might be of use, if you edit the file gluegen\src\native\windows\WindowsDynamicLinkerImpl_JNI.c and replace

typedef int intptr_t;

with

typedef __intptr_t intptr_t;

Other platforms should give you less trouble compiling the project by using the latest gcc compiler and JDK 8. However, you must repeat the build procedure on different platforms to build all the library jars.

The Java 3D is easier to build. First, clone the repositories.

git clone git://github.com/hharrison/vecmath

git clone git://github.com/hharrison/java3d-core j3d-core

git clone git://github.com/hharrison/java3d-utils j3d-utils

mkdir jogl-v2.3.2

wget http://jogamp.org/deployment/v2.3.2/jar/gluegen-rt.jar

wget http://jogamp.org/deployment/v2.3.2/jar/jogl-all.jar

mv gluegen-rt.jar jogl-v2.3.2

mv jogl-all.jar jogl-v2.3.2

If you possess a custom-built Jogl and Gluegen library jars, include them in these two lines, found in the build.xml file, in the j3d-core directory.

<property name="jogl.lib" location="../jogl-v2.3.2/jogl-all.jar"/>

<property name="gluegen.lib" location="../jogl-v2.3.2/gluegen-rt.jar"/>

Next, run the ant in the vecmath and j3d-core directories (or, ant clean, if needed).

Your application will require the freshly produced libraries (j3dcore.jar, j3dutils.jar, and vecmath.jar) and the original jogamp-fat.jar. In the case that you do build your own custom Jogl and Gluegen projects, you can include the produced jars such as gluegen-rt-natives-windows-amd64.jar, gluegen-rt.jar, jogl-all-natives-windows-amd64.jar, and jogl-all.jar, whose exact names depend from the platform you are working on.

Personalization has long been the holy grail of marketing. Simply stated, communicate the most relevant offer to the right person and you will increase sales. To achieve this, you must understand the individual. Consequently, digital marketers developed many ways to gather and leverage customer information to deliver targeted experiences. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lou Casal, Founder and Principal Consultant at Practicala, discussed how the Internet of Things (IoT) has accelerated our abilit...
HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...
Vulnerability management is vital for large companies that need to secure containers across thousands of hosts, but many struggle to understand how exposed they are when they discover a new high security vulnerability. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, John Morello, CTO of Twistlock, addressed this pressing concern by introducing the concept of the “Vulnerability Risk Tree API,” which brings all the data together in a simple REST endpoint, allowing companies to easily grasp the severity of the ...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, James Henry, Co-CEO/CTO of Calgary Scientific Inc., introduced you to the challenges, solutions and benefits of training AI systems to solve visual problems with an emphasis on improving AIs with continuous training in the field. He explored applications in several industries and discussed technologies that allow the deployment of advanced visualization solutions to the cloud.
Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Effectively SMBs and government programs must address compounded regulatory compliance requirements.

The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Timothy Evavold, Executive Director Automotive at Covisint, discussed key challenges and solutions to powering a ride sharing and/or multimodal model in the age ...
CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cro...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software. They hope to capture value from emerging technologies such as IoT, SDN, and AI.

One of the typical use-case is remote camera monitoring. With WebRTC, people can have interoperability and flexibility for deploying monitoring service. However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures. How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in. D
Between the mockups and specs produced by analysts, and resulting applications built by developers, there exists a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral, and applications disappoint. Methodologies like Agile attempt to address this with intensified communication, with partial success but many limitations. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Charles Kendrick, CTO at Isomorphic Software, presented a revolutionary model enabled by new technologies. Learn how business and develop...

Last year was another banner year for security breaches, sad but true. At times it felt like a week did not go by without the announcement of another large corporate security breach (that usually happened sometime in the past) and the personal information of millions of people was potentially at risk. One breach in particular stands out to me. The Equifax breach that occurred last September. Approximately 145 million individuals' personal information had potentially been acquired by the hackers.

With IBM, Google, and Microsoft pouring funding into the research of quantum computing, it's really starting to look like we are going to see the benefits in the next 5 - 10 years. Google may be just weeks from announcing they reached the quantum supremacy milestone and IBM may not be far behind either. Today, I wanted to share my thoughts on how quantum computing may affect cryptography as we know it. When we talk about the basic cryptography used for things like TLS when you access your bank's website, the premise behind securing your data is surprisingly simple. The certificate uses a pu...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on organizations of all sizes and in every line of business. Fintech is a constant battleground for th...
HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it. This meant that up to now the HyperConverged vendors were in charge of the requirements.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no idea how to get a proper answer.
