Modern cyber attacks are increasing and are becoming more sophisticated. In addition to existing malware, security experts are seeing an increase in never-seen-before malware. For the average SonicWall customer, malware has increased 44% from 2017 levels, and ransomware threats have increased 117% from 2017 levels. We are fighting a cyber arms race, and we need to be vigilant about protecting our data. You might be thinking that you are covered—but for example, did you know that non-standard ports are being used more and more as attack points? If you are not a step ahead of the bad guys, you could be putting your network and data at risk.

How to Scale IT Infrastructure

Article | April 25, 2020

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. Vertical scaling, or scaling up, adds more processing power and memory to a system, giving it an immediate boost. 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.

WIRELESS DATA CENTERS AND CLOUD COMPUTING

Article | April 13, 2020

One of the most exciting areas of Vubiq Network’s innovative millimeter wave technology is in the application of ultra high-speed, short-range communications as applied to solving the scaling constraints and costs for internal data center connectivity and switching. Today’s limits of cabled and centralized switching architectures are eliminated by leveraging the wide bandwidths of the millimeter wave spectrum for the high-density communications requirements inside the modern data center. Our patented technology has the ability to provide more than one terabit per second of wireless uplink capacity from a single server rack through an innovative approach to create a millimeter wave massive mesh network. The elimination of all inter-rack cabling – as well as the elimination of all aggregation and core switches – is combined with higher throughput, lower latency, lower power, higher reliability, and lower cost by using millimeter wave wireless connectivity.
