Disaster recovery is an important pre-requisite and a must have solution that can be incredibly expensive, resource intensive and error prone. Resource crunched organizations often make a mistake by placing secondary data centers too close to their primary facilities, or cutting corners on performance and redundancy in network connections, snapshots, backups and server clusters.

How to build your IT infrastructure for 5G-enabled edge computing

Article | February 26, 2020

The global 5G-enabled edge computing market is growing rapidly, fueled by major technology changes that are disrupting the traditional networking industry. By 2025, this market is expected to exceed $50 billion. 5G has the potential to deliver a new generation of services, thanks to higher data rates and ultra-low latency. To take advantage of this potential, communications service providers are looking to move data processing and compute power closer to the end user — closer to the edge. While the digital boom provides many opportunities for IT leaders, it comes with challenges: a growing number of smart devices, the need for faster processing and increased pressure on enterprise networks.

Rethinking How We Measure IT Infrastructure Value

Either the metric is too narrow, the timeline is too short, or the investment is not mature enough. It warrants a more holistic approach that looks at multiple aspects of risks, costs and benefits, and compares different components of ROI.
