Edge computing environments: what you need to know

Article | March 24, 2020

The saying goes: “If you’re not on the edge, you’re taking up too much space”. And compute itself is now moving to the edge, forcing datacentre operators to wring the last drops of productivity from their infrastructure, ahead of a future supporting multi-sensor internet of things (IoT) devices over 5G for machine learning, and even artificial intelligence (AI). Jennifer Cooke, research director of cloud-to-edge datacentre trends at IDC, says datacentre operators need to start thinking about how many systems they will need to roll out, and the people they will need to support them. “Cost becomes the prohibitive factor,”

Was Your IT Infrastructure Ready for COVID-19?

Article | April 7, 2020

Lockdowns, quarantines, travel bans, restrictions on social life and more. The world is facing one of its biggest challenges right now, something that was predicted multiple times in the past, but something no one paid much attention to until now. The impact on our future life is still up in the air, but what about IT? I have been asking clients and colleagues “What is the real impact of COVID-19 on your IT infrastructure?” for a couple of weeks now, while also trying to get a grasp on what is really happening to both IT professionals and the IT vendor community. While my focus is on data storage, I’m pretty sure that a similar analysis of other areas of IT will lead to the same conclusions. Here is a very basic example.

Do you need a data hosting service?

Article | April 2, 2020

Collecting data, processing it and finally culling it to fuel your business decisions is imperative at a day and age where technology is omnipresent. And hence, the next obvious question that every business needs to ask is, ‘where are we storing our data?’ Even though many of us have never even set foot into a data center, as citizens of a connected, data-driven world, we are highly dependent on data center services - the same way we rely on efficient water supply, transport infrastructure, and electrical grids.
