The Drive with Direction: The Path of Enterprise IT Infrastructure

Introduction

It is hard to manage a modern firm without a convenient and adaptable IT infrastructure. When properly set up and networked, technology can improve back-office processes, increase efficiency, and simplify communication. IT infrastructure can be utilized to supply services or resources both within and outside of a company, as well as to its customers. IT infrastructure when adequately deployed aids organizations in achieving their objectives and increasing profits.

IT infrastructure is made up of numerous components that must be integrated for your company's infrastructure to be coherent and functional. These components work in unison to guarantee that your systems and business as a whole run smoothly.

Enterprise IT Infrastructure Trends

Consumption-based pricing models are becoming more popular among enterprise purchasers, a trend that began with software and has now spread to hardware. This transition from capital to operational spending lowers risk, frees up capital, and improves flexibility. As a result, infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) revenues increased by 53% from 2015 to 2016, making them the fastest-growing cloud and infrastructure services segments. The transition to as-a-service models is significant given that a unit of computing or storage in the cloud can be quite cheaper in terms of the total cost of ownership than a unit on-premises.

While businesses have been migrating their workloads to the public cloud for years, there has been a new shift among large corporations. Many companies, including Capital One, GE, Netflix, Time Inc., and others, have downsized or removed their private data centers in favor of shifting their operations to the cloud.

Cybersecurity remains a high priority for the C-suite and the board of directors. Attacks are increasing in number and complexity across all industries, with 80% of technology executives indicating that their companies are unable to construct a robust response. Due to lack of cybersecurity experts, many companies can’t get the skills they need on the inside, so they have to use managed security services.

Future of Enterprise IT Infrastructure

Companies can adopt the 'As-a-Service' model to lower entry barriers and begin testing future innovations on the cloud's basis. Domain specialists in areas like healthcare and manufacturing may harness AI's potential to solve some of their businesses' most pressing problems.

Whether in a single cloud or across several clouds, businesses want an architecture that can expand to support the rapid evolution of their apps and industry for decades. For enterprise-class visibility and control across all clouds, the architecture must provide a common control plane that supports native cloud Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as well as enhanced networking and security features.

Conclusion

The scale of disruption in the IT infrastructure sector is unparalleled, presenting enormous opportunities and hazards for industry stakeholders and their customers. Technology infrastructure executives must restructure their portfolios and rethink their go-to-market strategies to drive growth. They should also invest in the foundational competencies required for long-term success, such as digitization, analytics, and agile development.

Data center companies that can solve the industry's challenges, as well as service providers that can scale quickly without limits and provide intelligent outcome-based models. This helps their clients achieve their business objectives through a portfolio of 'As-a-Service' models, will have a bright future.

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

Article | August 3, 2022

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.

We Need to Talk About ‘Cloud Neutrality’

Article | January 21, 2021

We spent a lot of years talking about net neutrality the idea that the companies that provide access to the internet shouldn’t unfairly block, slow down, or otherwise interfere with traffic even if that traffic competes with their services. But there’s an even bigger issue brewing, and it’s time to start talking about it: cloud neutrality. “While its name sounds soft and fluffy,” Microsoft president and general counsel Brad Smith and coauthor Carol Ann Browne write in their recent book, Tools and Weapons: The Promise and the Peril of the Digital Age, “in truth the cloud is a fortress.” Their introduction describes the modern marvel of the data center: a 2 million-square-foot, climate-controlled facility made up of colossal electrical generators, diesel fuel tanks, battery arrays, and bulletproof doors

Pivotal Commware Lights Up mmWave Fixed Wireless Coverage in Houston

Pivotal Commware, Inc. | December 05, 2022

Pivotal Commware, global leader in 5G mmWave infrastructure products for the wireless edge, announces that Pivotal Turnkey is expanding 5G mmWave coverage for a Tier 1 mobile network operator (MNO) in Houston. Pivotal Turnkey provides an end-to-end solution using Pivotal’s mmWave product ecosystem. Turnkey delivers potential fixed wireless access (FWA) subscribers to MNOs at lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) – 25% to 35% the cost of fiber – and lower time-to-revenue. WaveScape® network planning optimizes the placement of network elements -- Pivot 5G® and Echo 5G® -- for a given coverage objective. Pivots navigate mmWave signals around obstacles. Echos penetrate them indoors through window glass to deliver gigabit broadband speed. Intelligent Beam Management System (IBMS) manages and optimizes the repeater network layer. “With Pivotal Turnkey, we can go into any city where an MNO has deployed mmWave 5G coverage for mobility services and use their pre-existing network elements, alongside ours, to light up new FWA services in a few months,” said Brian Deutsch, CEO of Pivotal Commware. “By providing the lowest total cost of ownership for the operator and accelerating their time-to-revenue, we go from FWA-zero to hero in just a few months.” We have worked in the trenches alongside our MNO partners for the past four years, and through the experience believe that no one understands mmWave’s unique challenges like Pivotal does. Only Pivotal’s ecosystem of products and services can offer a solution that begins with proprietary modeling and ends with network launch. With Turnkey, our MNOs get five companies under one roof.” Jay Maciejewski, General Manager of Pivotal Turnkey Services. 5G FWA has been a runaway success for MNOs competing for their share of the $100 billion U.S. broadband market. As data demand continues to climb at a 40 percent compound annual growth rate, keeping subscribers happy will require the higher capacity found at mmWave frequencies, freeing up costly and scarce sub-6 GHz frequencies for mobile users. Deutsch added, “At 500 GB/month, FWA subscribers consume 40X the data of mobile subscribers. Getting them onto the vast available spectrum at mmWave, at gigabit speeds, is a priority.” About Pivotal Commware, Inc. Pivotal Commware develops communications platforms, systems and applications based on Holographic Beam Forming®. HBF antenna technology enables network operators to increase network speed, capacity, and spectral efficiency using the lowest cost, size, weight, and power consumption (C-SWaP) envelope available.
