As 2017 kicks into high gear, I want to focus attention on the SAP Cloud Platform, formerly known as SAP HANA Cloud Platform, which was officially rebranded last month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Having HANA in the platform offering’s name posited a necessity to run the SAP HANA database service when adopting the SAP Cloud Platform which is not the case. Although SAP HANA can be leveraged when using the SAP Cloud Platform, it is by no means the only service that companies adopt when deploying this SAP PaaS offering. So to avoid any confusion going forward, SAP decided to remove the HANA name from the SAP Cloud Platform. The platform’s emphasis is as an enterprise cloud platform that covers for a wide range of use cases to help organizations navigate their digital…

As a marketer, I’ve often heard comments like “You sound like you’re in marketing” made with a disparaging undertone. The implication is that anything that comes out of a marketer’s consciousness— verbally, written or heard—must be about sales and promotions and can therefore be dismissed as lacking any depth or substance.  Luckily, I have the opportunity to set the record straight and create content that is compelling, educational, authentic, and relevant. And more than anything else, my goal is to create content that my audience would care to learn about.
Hence, with the support of my social team, we set out to create the SAP Cloud Platform C.A.R.E. video series. The goal of these interview-style videos is to introduce topics, customers, partners and demos that are cloud related, authentic in our discussions, relevant for the audience watching, and educational (…C.A.R.E.).

The recent Apache Ignite 1.9 release provided an integration with Kubernetes that automates deployment, scalability, and management of an Apache Ignite cluster running under its supervision. The whole idea of the integration is to enable Apache Ignite nodes auto-discovery in Kubernetes so that they can interconnect with each other to form a distributed cluster.

What’s new in Apache Ignite.NET 1.9

Posted by Pavel Tupitsyn on Monday 13 March 2017, 17:00

Apache Ignite 1.9 has been released last week. Let’s see what is new in the .NET part.

TransactionScope API

Before 1.9, Ignite transactions could only be started explicitly with IIgnite.GetTransactions().TxStart() call.

Now you can also use standard TransactionScope API:

using (var ts = new TransactionScope())
{
cache[1] = 2;
cache[2] = 1;

// Transaction has been started on first transactional ICache method call.
Debug.Assert(ignite.GetTransactions().Tx != null);

ts.Complete();
}

Besides being easier to use, TransactionScope API allows performing transactional operations across multiple systems (via Two Phase Commit). For example…
