Are your IT resources ready for hurricane season?

As the East Coast enters this year’s Atlantic hurricane season, it’s a good time to take a fresh look at disaster recovery and business continuity. Even beyond these coastal storms, natural disaster can wreak havoc on data centers and IT infrastructure, catching organizations off guard and threatening to put them out of commission for an indefinite period of time. Disaster recovery isn’t just restricted to large-scale physical concerns, either. Smaller events such as power outages, equipment failure, human error and flooding can all bring operations to a screeching halt if measures aren’t in place to protect data, restore backups and accommodate shifts in workload demands.

IT infrastructure scaling is when the size and power of an IT system are scaled to accommodate changes in storage and workflow demands. Infrastructure scaling can be horizontal or vertical.

Horizontal scaling, or scaling out, adds more servers to the cloud, easing the bottleneck in the long run, but also adding more complexity to the system.

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.
