Businesses Seek Out a New Calculus for Public Cloud

Not long ago, cloud computing was a trendy new concept, with some observers predicting that on-premises data centers would disappear completely as the cost of public cloud resources continued to spiral downward. Those days are largely over. Public cloud prices have stabilized, and many organizations have found that on-premises infrastructure costs can be lower for a number of use cases. Some IT leaders have found that certain workloads — especially legacy applications — are more difficult to migrate or manage in the public cloud than they originally anticipated. And there’s a general consensus that hybrid cloud and multicloud (as opposed to exclusively public cloud) strategies will be central for most enterprises going forward. All of this means that the decision-making process about moving resources to the public cloud – a process that was once dominated by the single metric of price – has grown far more complex. Organizations can find significant value by migrating workloads to the cloud, but they must have a strategy for identifying which workloads fit best, and how they can complete a migration seamlessly. Once migration is complete, many organizations face a challenge in managing multiple workloads in various cloud environments.

Article | May 3, 2021

What Is IT Infrastructure Security? If you are reading this blog, we would like to assume that you are either an aspiring cybersecurity professional or a business owner looking for ways to improve their network security. A business IT infrastructure includes networks, software, hardware, equipment, and other facilities that make up an IT network. These networks are applied to establish, monitor, test, manage, deliver, and support IT services. So, IT infrastructure security describes the process of safeguarding the core networking infrastructure, and it is typically applied to enterprise IT environments. You can improve IT infrastructure security by installing protective solutions to block unauthorized access, theft, deletion, and data modification.

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.

SASE as a Business Continuity Solution

Article | April 9, 2020

As offices worldwide sit abandoned, many of the millions of employees ordered to stay home are actually keeping hard at work, taking advantage of residential broadband connections, VPNs, email, video conferencing, and instant messaging applications to do their jobs. Thank the corporate world’s willingness to let employees occasionally work from home for the necessary IT infrastructure. However, as much as we’d like this alone to solve the business continuity challenges, enabling a handful of employees to work from home once a week is trivial compared to ensuring all of a company’s employees can do so for months on end.

Data Security in the Cloud Best Practices

Article | April 8, 2020

Data security in the cloud best practices include: understanding and implementing security fundamentals, securing cloud infrastructure along the shared responsibility model, encrypting data in the cloud, and ensuring compliance with applicable regulations. Data security fundamentals often come back to the CIA Triad: data confidentiality, data integrity, and data availability. The shared responsibility model refers to the idea that both a cloud provider and the organization using the cloud are responsible for ensuring the overall security of the organization’s cloud infrastructure, including the data housed there.
