Edge computing environments: what you need to know

Article | June 2, 2021

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,”

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

Article | June 2, 2021

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.

Fiber Optic vs Copper Cables: How Do They Compare?

Article | June 2, 2021

Fiber Optic and Copper are pretty much the only options when it comes to networking communications cables. Today we focus on what makes them different. Let’s begin with the key characteristics of the old reliable copper phone lines — the same basic infrastructure that we’ve been using since the beginning of the 20th-century. Copper is highly conductive. This is what makes it so great for carrying the power to your home. Copper wires use the movement of electrons to carry signals by modulating a waveform at one end then demodulating it at the other end. And converting the patterns in the waveform into an analog or digital signal.
