Cloudera CEO Thomas Reilly said the company's integration with Hortonworks--an acquisition that closed January 3--has been largely straightforward with plans to deliver the Cloud Data Platform over the next two quarters.However, the company's fourth quarter results and first quarter outlook were disappointing relative to Wall Street estimates. What's unclear is whether analysts had modeled Cloudera correctly with the Hortonworks deal closing weeks ago.Reilly, making the comments on Cloudera's fourth quarter conference call, made the case for the company's enterprise data cloud strategy. The enterprise data cloud, or EDC, is multicloud and hybrid, address multiple analytics functions, offer governance and use an open architecture that can tap into multiple data stores. The Cloudera CEO said the company's EDC strategy will first be realized via its Cloudera Data Platform. Reilly said:We are well on our way to delivering the first instantiation of enterprise data cloud, which combines the best of Hortonworks and Cloudera's platforms. We call this new offering the Cloudera Data Platform or CDP. In the next 2 quarters, we plan to deliver CDP as a public cloud service. Later in the year, we will offer CDP for the public cloud -- for the private cloud, bringing a public cloud-like experience directly into the data center for enterprise customers.

T-Mobile to Slash $30M in Cloud Costs With Kubernetes

Article | April 3, 2020

T-Mobile US has found success with Kubernetes and currently operates 20,000 containers across its virtualized cloud infrastructure. In fact, over the next year the carrier claims the combination of centralized management of Kubernetes containers and a normalized approach to clusters will help it to slash $30 million in cloud costs. Thom McCann, senior manager and software engineer at T-Mobile, shared the carrier’s seven-year cloud journey progress this week as as part of D2iQ’s “Cloud Native Virtual Summit featuring Kubernetes.” From building applications manually, progressing to automation, and then implementing container-based workloads at scale, T-Mobile’s centralized cloud team has laid “bedrock foundations in place to deliver consistent cloud consumption in a large organization,” McCann said.

Security that’s Designed for the Modern Data Center

Article | April 3, 2020

The last 12 months have been incredibly exciting for the security business at VMware. Last year at RSA Conference 2019, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger outlined our Intrinsic Security strategy in his keynote presentation, “3 Things the Security Industry Isn’t Talking About”. We also announced the VMware Service-defined Firewall, a stateful Layer 7 data center firewall. As pioneers of micro-segmentation, the Service-defined Firewall extended our leadership in protecting east-west traffic in the data center. Later in the year, we announced two major acquisitions –Avi Networks and Carbon Black. The acquisition of Carbon Black brought to VMware an industry-leading endpoint security platform, and made the entire industry take notice of VMware’s intentions to transform security. With Avi Networks, we acquired a software-defined, elastic, and high-performance load balancer that comes equipped with a full-featured web application firewall (WAF). Maintaining the momentum in building out our security portfolio for the digital enterprise, we announced the VMware NSX Distributed Intrusion Detection and Prevention System which will bring advanced threat controls to the Service-defined Firewall.

Accelerating 5G vRAN: The Case for GPUs

Article | April 3, 2020

The pace of 5G rollouts in 2019 surpassed expectations, and in 2020 the momentum is only increasing. So far, 5G usage has been predominantly 4G-style mobile broadband (MBB) services driving smartphone traffic growth. By the end of 2019, global mobile data traffic was around 40 exabytes (EB) per month and by 2025 we expect 160 EB, with video-related streaming accounting for about three-quarters of the total. Beyond MBB, 5G will allow service providers to address more of the IT value chain as they accommodate and enable an emerging range of enterprise applications and services. What will it take to spur this next wave of 5G across a broad spectrum of use-cases? RAN virtualization is a key element to the story of 5G reaching beyond MBB.
