There was a time up until a decade ago when virtualization sounded like a term straight out of a science fiction movie. Something that belonged to the realm of time travel, teleportation, and anti-gravity hoverboards. Today, virtualization is a key tool in the quest for IT departments to find better ways to integrate, provision, deploy, and manage systems at a faster pace without straining budgets. It is widely recognized as a powerful technology that helps businesses save money, energy, and space, so they can meet the escalating needs and expectations of their end users.

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

Article | March 24, 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.

Fortinet Forges FortiAI Security Service

Article | March 24, 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.

How 5G and edge computing can enhance virtual reality

Article | March 24, 2020

For some time now, 5G has been associated with the promise of new digital applications and services that come with a hyper-connected life. We have seen that this new technology, which provides “perfect” connectivity, creates new value for both us as individuals and to industries and enterprises. The current global pandemic is drastically impacting our daily lives, and as a result, the relevance of such digital applications and services is accelerating. For example, we suddenly see an increased need for communication services, tools for remote collaboration, and fast and reliable access to data – whether it’s from the office, the home or somewhere in between. Augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) are two technology concepts providing significant benefits in this new digital reality. These technologies open new ways of working in areas such as manufacturing, gaming, media, automotive and healthcare, allowing for both increased productivity and completely new user experiences. In the Ericsson ConsumerLab merged reality report, 7 out of 10 early adopters expect VR and AR to change everyday life fundamentally.
