Modern classrooms rely on technology. When a school’s infrastructure is outdated, it’s not just an
IT problem it’s an education problem. Streaming videos can be an excellent tool for teachers, but
when videos frequently pause to buffer or load, the tool becomes a distraction. Modern infrastructure allows educators to seamlessly integrate video into their lessons when needed. If your team receives one slow-connection-related ticket per month per full time equivalent, it’s time to consider upgrades. Of course, you’ll know about this issue only if your IT team provides regular reports and documentation.

Benefits of Kubernetes on bare metal cloud infrastructure

Article | March 3, 2020

Bare metal cloud infrastructure is being introduced to run 5G applications in containers. This is a natural development of the shift the industry is going through from virtualized network functions to cloud native applications. But what are the benefits of running Kubernetes on a bare metal cloud infrastructure compared to a virtualized infrastructure? Let’s start with a brief recap on cloud native and CNCF – Cloud Native Computing Foundation. With the introduction of 5G, new use cases drive the need for designing applications based on containers and service-based architecture to address some technology gaps associated with virtualization. The most important technology gaps involve smoother software upgrades, automation and the realization of a CI/CD software pipeline to end customers.

Infrastructure as code vs. platform as code

Article | March 3, 2020

With infrastructure as code (IaC), you write declarative instructions about compute, storage and network requirements for the infra and execute it. How does this compare to platform as code (PaC) and what did these two concepts develop in response to? In its simplest form, the tech stack of any application has three layers — the infra layer containing bare metal instances, virtual machines, networking, firewall, security etc.; the platform layer with the OS, runtime environment, development tools etc.; and the application layer which, of course, contains your application code and data. A typical operations team works on the provisioning, monitoring and management of the infra and platform layers, in addition to enabling the deployment of code.

Edge computing-driven transformation of data, management, and applications

Article | March 3, 2020

Big name companies are investing in edge computing developments. Bruce Davie, VMware’s VP and CTO, Asia Pacific and Japan, ranked Edge Computing along with the rise of mobile devices, cloud and AI in his list of “four super powers of technology”. According to Fujitsu CTO, Joseph Reger, “It is very obvious that you need to bring intelligence closer to [IoT] devices, and for that you must have a kind of distributed intelligence and that is going to reload the opportunities for digital transformation.” With reference to Gartner saying that by 2022, some 75% the of enterprise-generated data would be created and processed outside the traditional, centralised data centre or cloud, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) committed some US$4 billion investment in intelligent edge technologies and services by 2021.
