Poor quality, faulty, and out-of-date ICT equipment is one the main reasons for teachers not using technology in schools. In a recent survey conducted by ClassFlow, many teachers raised concerns around infrastructure and budgets. It’s clear that investment is urgently needed to ensure that modern schools have the IT infrastructure necessary to succeed. However, while the value of technology in education cannot be underestimated, diminishing budgets mean that in some schools, the long-term benefits of edtech are being overlooked due to more immediate priorities and needs. Despite a lack of funding, battling IT infrastructure issues is necessary if you want to do more than pay lip service to pedagogical technology, and reap the real educational benefits it provides. We spoke to Scott Auld at Daisy Group, a leading telecomms, IT and hosting provider to get their take on how best to tackle the issues.

Dartpoints Upgrades Its Data Center in Greenville

DartPoints | June 24, 2022

Today, DartPoints, a cutting-edge digital infrastructure provider, announced an expansion and significant electrical enhancements at its data center in Greenville, South Carolina. In addition to modernizing electrical equipment, such as switchgear, generators, and electrical distribution, the team is building a power room and electrical service entrance space that can hold 17,000 extra square feet. The improvements will help the local business community of Greenville by bringing much-needed local digital infrastructure, enhancing security and safety at the site, and enabling speedy future expansion. This project demonstrates DartPoint's ongoing commitment to South Carolina and the Upstate. Since 2007, DartPoints has aided Greenville's expanding technological community by giving top-notch support to regional companies, enhancing network performance and connectivity, and establishing itself as a pillar of the neighborhood. "This investment reinforces our dedication to continuing to serve as the colocation, cloud, security, and data backup leader in Greenville and the Upstate region. This expansion not only strengthens the state's internet connectivity ecosystem, but it also boosts the local economy as a whole. South Carolinians have been faced with a concerning digital divide and lack of high-performing internet infrastructure, and we're proud to fill those gaps for local residents that we've loved serving for the past 15 years," said Scott Willis, DartPoints CEO. Enterprise-class building with quick access to I-85 and I-385 is home to DartPoints' Greenville data center, which is situated at 78 Global Drive in the city's Global Business Park. Due to its low risk of natural catastrophes, thriving IT sector, availability of dependable and affordable utilities, and skilled IT workforce, Greenville makes an excellent choice for a data center and disaster recovery location. "We've worked hard to create a business-friendly environment in our state because it means companies come here, invest in our communities, and ultimately improve the quality of life for our people, and that's exactly what DartPoints has done in their 15 years in South Carolina. We're grateful for DartPoints' commitment to investing in South Carolinians and doing its important, innovative work in Greenville." South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster The first public internet exchange in the state, Bridge IXTM from DartPoints, began operational in Columbia, South Carolina, in April. Internet traffic from South Carolina has typically been sent to the nearest large network markets, such as Atlanta and Charlotte, North Carolina. The goal of DartPoints South Carolina is to retain local traffic within the state to enhance network performance and resilience and save connectivity costs.

Successful Edge Computing Depends on a Symbiotic Edge and Core to Workload Relationship, According to IDC

IDC | February 07, 2022

To compete in a digital-first world, organizations are prioritizing investments in digital tools to augment physical spaces and assets and enable seamless and secure data gathering and analysis. These investments empower organizations to provision enterprise workloads at edge locations in support of innovative edge use cases. New research from International Data Corporation (IDC) examines the infrastructure needs of various edge use cases and how growth in these use cases will create new demands for enterprise workloads. Edge computing is comprised of IT infrastructure and applications deployed outside of core datacenters to support data gathering and analysis closer to the source. IDC has identified four workloads from its Worldwide Enterprise Infrastructure Workloads Taxonomy that have a significant influence among edge use cases: business intelligence/data analytics; content delivery; text and image analytics; and networking & security. Multiple workloads are combined to support specific edge use cases. For each workload category, IDC ranks the contained workloads by primary, secondary, and tertiary impact on select edge use cases. Because workloads can reside across a continuum of core, edge, and endpoint locations, edge computing requires a significant amount of coordination among technology and service providers. Similarly, workloads run across a range of compute architectures, requiring a high degree of interoperability and scalability. Accordingly, a symbiotic edge and core to workload relationship is needed to enable workloads based at the core that support the edge, workloads based at the edge that support the edge, and workloads at the edge that support the core. While all three scenarios are important, the report focuses on enterprise workloads that are primarily located at, and managed from, the edge. The most significant edge workload opportunity is streamlining business intelligence and analytics. Because data management and analysis-related workloads have and are expected to have a major or secondary role in nearly all significant edge use case development, IDC expects it will be one of the primary areas of investment at the edge. Similarly, development tools and applications workloads will see growing investment because of their influence on more forward edge use cases, especially in systems related to advanced AI and robotics. In contrast, IDC doesn’t see business application workloads as critical to the development of any major enterprise edge use cases, especially for newer developing areas of edge networks. "Using digital technologies to improve the safety of people and communities and to increase the resilience of operations are being adopted the most rapidly. Industries such as manufacturing are already recognizing the impact that edge resources are having on operational efficiency and improved product quality,As these platforms become more readily customized and adapted for broader use, the need for more IT infrastructure at the edge will escalate." Jennifer Cooke, research director, Edge Strategies at IDC "The rapid deployment of edge computing is significantly shaping workload evolution," said Max Pepper, senior research analyst, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies. "As edge technology continues to expand in usage in a variety of workplace environments, we are seeing growing interest in expected concurrent workload growth in areas such as business intelligence and analytics, AI/ML-related workloads, and content workloads. While organizations should expect these workloads to be the main areas of edge-related growth, workloads across the spectrum will have critical influence even in minor roles within edge use cases." The IDC report, Enterprise Edge Workloads ,provides an analysis of how enterprise workloads are interacting with and supporting edge use cases. As edge IT service continues to develop and expand, knowing which workloads are having a significant impact becomes more critical in optimizing edge use case development and edge platforms. This document provides an overview of the edge landscape and examples of industry adoption of edge use cases.
