Root Level Technology’s Eric Fouarge Talks About The Transition To The Public Cloud

The cloud is a powerful tool in the hands of any business, but it’s not without its growing pains. Despite that narrative, a business’s cloud transition need not be painful, nor difficult. That’s precisely what our CTO, Eric Fouarge, recently discussed on a podcast session hosted by ActualTech Media. The power of the public cloud to revolutionize a business’s IT operations has been well-documented. It’s an incredible innovation platform for the development of new tools and initiatives. It provides unmatched agility and flexibility, putting small businesses and startups on even footing with large enterprises, where infrastructure is concerned, and it is at the core of exciting advancements such as machine learning, big data, and the Internet of Things. Yet cloud […]

Big Data: Deep Learning with Tensor Flow

Will Google’s TensorFlow Fuel Your Next Breakout Product? In the era of self-driving cars and the internet of things, it can be easy to get caught up in the “window effect”.  Maybe you’ve been there already…on the outside of that window looking in jealousy.  That feeling of “sure, deep learning and big data utilization are all perfectly well for Google and other tech giants, but it’s entirely out of my company’s league.”  If you’ve thought that far into the matter, you’ve probably also reflected on the massive upside potential that these technologies hold (probably with a healthy dose of entrepreneurial jealousy, if we had to guess).  But now you can stop wishing and start innovating.  In a move that holds […]

5 Reasons Multi-Cloud Deployment is the Right Solution

These days so much is done in the Cloud that it is hard to imagine what life was like before it. The Cloud makes business more flexible, dynamic, and ready to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the digital world. That said, many companies find themselves in an awkward position because they have shifted much of their infrastructure onto one provider. Obviously, there are some potential problems with this type of setup. Issues can range from the company experiencing technical issues, which could mean no access to company data or being in a situation where you have to change providers due to a buyout or a change in the terms of service. These are just a few of the many […]

What Is Cloud Neutrality, and Why Does It Matter to Your Business?

As you likely already know, cloud computing represents an enormous business opportunity for organizations both small and large, coupled with the capacity to level the playing field for smaller firms. Unfortunately, like many new technologies, the cloud can also lend itself to a great deal of abuse. This is precisely why cloud neutrality is so essential – and why it’s critical that you understand what it is. What IS Cloud Neutrality? You wouldn’t be incorrect in assuming that cloud neutrality has a very similar meaning to carrier neutrality. In essence, it refers to an environment in which there is healthy competition between cloud providers. No vendor has an unfair advantage over any other vendor, and clients making use of a […]

How Worried Should You Be About Dynamic IPs?

One of the oldest, most tried-and-true methods of defeating a DDoS attack is by blocking the IP addresses used to execute it. Unfortunately, criminals are acutely aware of that fact – and in response, they’ve begun launching their attacks through a completely different vector: Layer 7, the application layer. By using real IP addresses, they’re able to establish a three-way TCP handshake, bypassing both cookies and JavaScript. Worse still, many of these attacks have grown surprisingly complex, implementing human like browsing behaviors, patterns, and timing. This means that the larger the attacks are, the more difficult they are to detect.  And IP-based defense systems cannot effectively tell the difference between these attacks and legitimate visitors – meaning that if they’re […]
