The move to the cloud is in full swing; businesses are using cloud services to drive productivity, as gaming and social media startups are building businesses on cloud infrastructure and consumers are taking advantage of the cloud for anytime, anywhere access to content and services. For organizations that wish to forgo ownership of IT infrastructure and businesses that want a flexible and cost-effective approach to supplementing existing IT infrastructure, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) has become a go-to solution.

Why we need more 5G cyberhacks

Article | February 24, 2020

How secure are 5G networks? That question should be on the lips of every network operator (and their customers) as the next generation of mobile broadband technology is rolled out across the world. While the industry is likely to find out the hard way, there are steps that can be taken to head off potential trouble. One such step is for network technology vendors to open up their systems to ethical hackers to see what happens (a scenario that doesn't happen nearly enough in the industry across all types of network technology). So it was encouraging to see a recent report on what was the world's first 5G cyber hackathon, which was held last November in Oulu, Finland. It was particularly encouraging to see that two of the radio access network market's leaders, Ericsson and Nokia, participated, as more than 80 ethical hackers got stuck into 5G New Radio, non-standalone (NSA) core and 5G fixed wireless access systems to see what vulnerabilities they could uncover.

The critical role of Internet of Things infrastructure in connecting all of our devices

Article | February 20, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) will fundamentally change all industries, from agriculture to transportation to healthcare. In the next few decades, nearly everything in our world will become connected. But with that increased connectivity comes several concerns. For example, the IoT will generate immense amounts of data, which will put pressure on the Internet and force us to come up with more efficient ways to transmit and store this data. Perhaps chief among these concerns are the infrastructure considerations as other sectors grow thanks to the IoT. Below, we've outlined the future of IoT infrastructure management, along with some IoT infrastructure companies that are leading the way.

All-out SaaS for IT operations management

Article | April 9, 2020

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is an old friend that has been an established business model since the 1960s. It is a broad term referring to everything from platform to software and various other technology ecosystems that are offered to customers on a consumption pay-per-use model. In 2019, the SaaS market was estimated to be worth $141 billion. The 2020 market is projected to reach the $157 billion mark. When compared with figures from 2014 when the industry was said to be worth $63.19 billion, the growth is exponential.

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,”
