Why enterprises are going all-in on hyperscale

Article | February 10, 2020

Cloud computing continues to dominate the technology space, with cloud migration yielding a rain of opportunities and benefits. To date, achieving massive scale in computing power and data storage is a priority for organizations looking to mature in digital transformation. Hyperscale infrastructure is designed exclusively for that purpose, and it offers increasingly relevant features such as high levels of performance and high tolerance and room for error as well as redundancy. A recent report showed enterprises are leaning towards hyperscalers for cloud services as compared to second-tier providers.

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,”

Benefits of Kubernetes on bare metal cloud infrastructure

Article | March 3, 2020

Bare metal cloud infrastructure is being introduced to run 5G applications in containers. This is a natural development of the shift the industry is going through from virtualized network functions to cloud native applications. But what are the benefits of running Kubernetes on a bare metal cloud infrastructure compared to a virtualized infrastructure? Let’s start with a brief recap on cloud native and CNCF – Cloud Native Computing Foundation. With the introduction of 5G, new use cases drive the need for designing applications based on containers and service-based architecture to address some technology gaps associated with virtualization. The most important technology gaps involve smoother software upgrades, automation and the realization of a CI/CD software pipeline to end customers.
