A large majority of enterprises have rejected the dichotomy of an either/or, on-premises data center versus public cloud. Today, 85 percent embrace a hybrid or multicloud strategy, according to RightScale’s “2017 State of the Cloud Survey.” They are employing both public clouds and private clouds, including virtualized on-prem environments.This shift to multiple clouds is presenting new data protection and disaster recovery problems that many information technology professionals are ill-equipped to solve. Some wish they could simply transfer their tried-and-true on-prem methods over to cloud. VMware Inc. and parent company Dell Technologies Inc. are stepping in with virtualized data protection that aims to provide such hybrid compatibility.

Recent IDC Report Highlights VMware Cloud on Dell EMC For Edge Compute

Article | March 18, 2020

Many businesses are discovering the need to compute enable the edge of their network. Whether it be a chain of brick and mortar stores, satellite healthcare clinics, or factories in remote locations, deploying compute at the edge allows applications to run in close proximity to internet- connected end user devices or machinery and the date generated by these devices. This allows real-time application interaction with these devices that otherwise would not be possible if data and applications were centrally hosted. While edge computing can significantly improve such things as customer interaction and real-time manufacturing efficiencies, IT organizations are often challenged by the cost and logistics of maintaining and servicing these decentralized compute end points. VMware and Dell EMC offer a straight-forward, easy to scale solution which optimally solves these challenges.

Accelerating 5G vRAN: The Case for GPUs

Article | March 18, 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.

Benefits of Kubernetes on bare metal cloud infrastructure

Article | March 18, 2020

Let’s start with a brief recap on cloud native and CNCF – Cloud Native Computing Foundation. With the introduction of 5G, new use cases drive the need for designing applications based on containers and service-based architecture to address some technology gaps associated with virtualization. The most important technology gaps involve smoother software upgrades, automation and the realization of a CI/CD software pipeline to end customers. In the center of cloud native technology development is CNCF, an open source community driving the adoption of the cloud native paradigm across industries by fostering collaboration between the industry’s top developers, end users and vendors. Since CNCF is such a huge community, the focus on the telecom industry has been limited. But now with the formation of the Telecom User Group (A Special Interest Group) within CNCF, Ericsson has taken a leading role in telecom related discussions in the community.

Security concerns hampering adoption of containers and Kubernetes

Article | March 18, 2020

Enterprises are having significant problems with security when it comes to Kubernetes and container deployments, according to a new survey from security company StackRox. In the winter 2020 edition of its State of Container and Kubernetes Security Report, StackRox researchers found that 94% of respondents experienced a security incident in their Kubernetes and container environments during the last 12 months. This very high number of security incidents led to about 44% of organizations delaying or outright halting application deployment into production.Researchers spoke with more than 540 IT professionals, the majority of whom work for tech companies or organizations involved in financial services.
