4 Ways Edge Computing Changes Cloud Utilization

Life is more exciting on the edge. So, too, is IT infrastructure.Having more compute power on the edge of the cloud is changing how Internet of Things (IoT) devices and applications work as systems. Edge devices still need to interact with central cloud systems, however, or edge has no meaning. Edge computing is not about cutting the connection to the cloud.I think of the difference using the analogy of how a plane is piloted. A plane has many sensors, and those sensors send data to a variety of destinations, such as the airline and the parts manufacturer for each device in the plane. Most of the time, the plane flies without problems, and there’s no pressing need to communicate with the central services. Problems that do come up are accompanied by known protocols for resolving them that the plane’s computers and pilots handle locally. This is the equivalent of edge computing: handling the routine.

Can AI bring down network energy costs?

Article | March 20, 2020

Data volumes in mobile networks are increasing at an unprecedented rate. In our latest mobility report, we forecast that mobile data traffic will grow fourfold by 2025, reaching up to 160 exabytes (EB) per month. This is amazing of course and offers all kinds of opportunities for communications service providers, but there is also a potential downside to this rapid surge in data traffic: its impact on the energy consumption and carbon footprint of mobile networks. That’s not the only downside for communications service providers, as it also raises a significant cost concern. The energy consumption of today’s networks accounts for 10 percent of annual operation expenditure (OPEX). As we found in our AI report, the demand to reduce operational costs already ranks among the top priorities for today’s operators. With the deployment of 5G and a spike in data traffic forecast, suddenly this demand becomes even more relevant.

Virtualization can transform your company’s IT infrastructure

Article | March 20, 2020

For many companies in today’s highly competitive, rapidly digitizing world, data center transformation is not merely a one-time project – it’s a constant challenge. No corporate IT leader should be content merely to revamp their data infrastructure once, then call it a day. Instead, they should always be looking for ways to make their approach to data more dynamic and easier to scale. Ideally, they’d do so in a way that maximizes resource utilization while minimizing costs. Luckily, that’s exactly the idea behind virtualization, which involves creating a new infrastructure that’s capable of rapidly scaling and facilitating workload development. IT leaders are quickly coming to realize that with virtualization in their toolbox, they’re able to make their operations more agile than ever, and without increasing costs. This is why over 80% of enterprise server workloads today are running on virtual machines, and the market for data center virtualization is expected to reach a total value of $10 billion by 2023.
