Data Tonnage: Managing the Coming M2M Tsunami

RICH MILLER | November 28, 2018

The digital transformation of our economy is projected to generate an ocean of data, fed by a growing universe of intelligent things – sensors, cameras, smartphones, tablets, drones, robots and connected cars. In a new report this week, Cisco predicts that machine-to-machine (M2M) applications will account for 51 percent of the total devices and connections by 2022. We’ve previously examined how edge computing has the potential to improve latency and transform network interconnection. But edge computing also will play an important role in data ingest, accepting data from devices and creating a richer two-way flow of information across the network. Improving latency focuses on accelerating the movement of data to the consumer. But many of the business benefits envisioned from edge computing will be derived from analytics that help companies improve their products and services. That requires moving tons of data from the consumer onto networks that are optimized for downloads, not uploads.

A new era of automation with Cisco ACI and the Citrix ADC Manager app

Article | February 12, 2020

Since it was first available, Citrix has worked with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) to integrate Citrix ADC with the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC). As a valued technology partner, Citrix has a device package — a software module — that enables users to configure the Citrix ADC directly from a Cisco APIC. This setup has run in many customer production environments over the years. Let’s consider one of those customers — Jim. He was the first to deploy the integrated solution in his data center. The solution gave him the automation he needed and a single view to configure, deploy, and manage applications. However, his application admins preferred to use the Citrix ADC user interface to manage L4-L7 services.

Do you need a data hosting service?

Article | April 2, 2020

Collecting data, processing it and finally culling it to fuel your business decisions is imperative at a day and age where technology is omnipresent. And hence, the next obvious question that every business needs to ask is, ‘where are we storing our data?’ Even though many of us have never even set foot into a data center, as citizens of a connected, data-driven world, we are highly dependent on data center services - the same way we rely on efficient water supply, transport infrastructure, and electrical grids.

The critical role of Internet of Things infrastructure in connecting all of our devices

Article | February 20, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) will fundamentally change all industries, from agriculture to transportation to healthcare. In the next few decades, nearly everything in our world will become connected. But with that increased connectivity comes several concerns. For example, the IoT will generate immense amounts of data, which will put pressure on the Internet and force us to come up with more efficient ways to transmit and store this data. Perhaps chief among these concerns are the infrastructure considerations as other sectors grow thanks to the IoT. Below, we've outlined the future of IoT infrastructure management, along with some IoT infrastructure companies that are leading the way.
