Dell EMC fulfilled a promise made earlier this year by announcing today it is making available the 14th Generation of the Dell EMC PowerEdge servers based on the Intel Xeon Scalable processor series. Brian Payne, senior product planning manager for the Dell PowerEdge Server Portfolio, says the availability of Intel Xeon Scalable processors should significantly accelerate the transition to software-defined infrastructure because of the increased system bandwidth afforded by the NVMe backplane technology Intel developed. While NVMe has been available for some time, the Intel Xeon Scalable Series are the first processors optimized to handle the levels of throughput enabled by NVMe. Specifically, Payne says he expects to see more adoption of both hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) and software-defined storage systems.

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,”

How to Rapidly Scale IT Infrastructure For Remote Workers

Article | April 13, 2020

Rapid IT infrastructure scaling is always challenging. In March 2020, the coronavirus caused a surge in remote workers as organizations switched overwhelmingly to work-from-home policies. Scaling IT infrastructure to support this sudden shift proved to be a struggle for IT teams, resulting in a migration to cloud-based applications and solutions, a rush on hardware that can support a remote environment, and challenges scaling VPNs to support remote worker security. Here are some of the insights and lessons learned from IT professionals.

Xi IoT’s continued journey to be a Multi-Cloud Platform

Article | March 21, 2020

We, the Team Sherlock @ Nutanix, wrapped up year 2019 with amazing line up of platform features for developers and infrastructure admnistrators. Read more about them in my last blog post, titled Xi IoT : Another year in retrospect. Since then we have added many more exciting features that I want to share with you in this new blog post. Xi IoT’s journey started at the Edge with a purpose built platform to manage Infrastructure and Apps at scale but soon this versatile Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) Stack found its ways into private and public clouds. As we have been talking to our customers and partners, need for such platform to run generic applications in private or public clouds is even more evident.

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.
