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.

Is Your On-Premises Existence Under Scrutiny? VMware Cloud on Dell EMC Offers a Solution

Article | February 26, 2020

For many IT teams and organizations, maintaining an on-premises infrastructure has become an increasing challenge. The introduction of the public cloud, along with the wholesale perception that running workloads in the public cloud is less expensive and provides an equivalent environment for previously on-premises workloads have captured significant attention. While the popularity of the public cloud is an undeniable force, without considering the disadvantages of relocating applications from on-premises data centers to the public cloud organizations are unable to make a balanced business decision. From the finance perspective, the traditional process of accounting for expensive capital-funded on-premises infrastructure updates creates extra work accounting for the infrastructure assets across the life span of the equipment. For accounting teams – the main allure of moving to the public cloud is that it eliminates the significant capital spend necessary to refresh the infrastructure every few years, replacing that cost with a more manageable monthly bill from the public cloud provider.

Virtualization can transform your company’s IT infrastructure

Article | February 18, 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.
