“Evolve and adapt or die. It’s that simple. Your legacy applications and IT infrastructure will not be easily retrofitted to match today’s security requirements,” he said. “Having a unified approach to IT asset management and security for both cloud and on-premises systems is where you need to be headed.”
According to Steve Guilford (LinkedIn: Steven Guilford), CEO of AsterionDB, “Offloading network and security services to a dedicated DPU has distinct advantages in the AsterionDB architecture. We turn middle-tier devices into elastic security isolation components that focus specifically on networking requirements without any concern for data or business logic. This allows for the implementation of a generic API interface to centralized resources in the AsterionDB architecture. Generic APIs typically reveal a single entry-point. This single entry point thusly does not reveal any information to an infiltrator, which obviously greatly enhances security.”
A cloud-first approach “allows companies to focus on the business dynamics that dictate when and by how much enterprise applications need to scale,” says Steve Guilford, CEO of AsterionDB. “What could be worse than to plan for an event that requires the scaling of an application’s infrastructure only to have it all fall flat on its face when the time comes?”
Have you ever considered what you could do if you were able to directly control the infrastructure surrounding your application? Well, with OCI you can do just that directly from the database. That means, application logic embedded within your database can tailor the contours of it’s supporting infrastructure.
Thank you for staying the course through the preceding five chapters. After the first chapter I did not know that this series would materialize into six distinct chapters but, here we are! Thanks again.
At the end of chapter five we arrived at a true inflection point: the realization that it is possible to build an architecture and an API that reduced network discovery down to a single point.
Oracle recently held a customer facing webinar featuring cyber security oriented members of the Oracle for Startups program. Watch this brief video segment where Steve Guilford, AsterionDB’s CEO, talks about the unique capabilities of AsterionDB, The Converged Computing Platform.
