While it's true that nobody likes to receive spam, bulk e-mail does have its place. For example, one of the professional associations that I belong to uses a mailing list to send a monthly newsletter to its members. Amazon Web Services (AWS) makes it relatively easy to create an e-mail campaign through a service called Pinpoint. Before I get started with showing you how to use Pinpoint, there are two things that you need to know. First, Pinpoint isn't limited solely to sending e-mail. You can also use it to send SMS text messages. Second, the cost is based on the number of messages that you send. Like most other AWS services, Amazon bills you based on your usage. With that said, let's go ahead and get started.

Fortinet Forges FortiAI Security Service

Article | February 25, 2020

Fortinet lent overworked and understaffed security operations (SecOPs) teams a helping hand today with the launch of FortiAI, an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered threat detection and remediation service.“FortiAI is designed to optimize security operations, enhance the productivity of the security analysts, and to reduce the false-positive rate,” said Jonathan Nguyen-Duy, VP of Fortinet’s global field CISO team, in an interview with SDxCentral.To do this, FortiAI utilizes a “self-learning” deep neural network (DNN) to automate rote security tasks to accelerate threat detection and remediation.“The practical reality is the complexity is expanding beyond the ability of conventional security operations to keep pace and so artificial intelligence and its subsets in machine learning and deep learning are all designed to automate those more mundane tasks,” Nguyen-Duy explained.

Can AI bring down network energy costs?

Article | February 25, 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.

Introducing vSphere 7: Modern Applications & Kubernetes

Article | March 13, 2020

The power of vSphere has always been its ability to support any (x86-based!) application under the sun, running those applications quickly and securely while providing a simplified management environment. Over the past twenty years, across all customers and partners worldwide, over 70 million applications are running on vSphere in total. While new applications run well on vSphere, the real question is how to make vSphere the best place to run those new apps – better than any other infrastructure out there. We believe that with vSphere 7 with Kubernetes, vSphere is now truly the best place for modern applications. Back in VMworld 2019, we announced Project Pacific, a technology preview for how we could integrate Kubernetes with vSphere. It was a profound idea – taking the best of Kubernetes and apply it to vSphere, and the best of vSphere and applying it to Kubernetes. vSphere 7 is the result of this foundational technology work. Unlike many other announcements around vSphere 7, Project Pacific is not a feature of vSphere – it simply is vSphere. vSphere itself has dramatically expanded to include all these great new capabilities.
