According to the latest report from research and analysis firm Forrester Research, “Enterprise data virtualization has become critical to every organization in overcoming growing data challenges,” with greater access to data and better flexibility and capacity for analysis of this data spurring this realization that, no matter what your real product is, you are now in the data business. It’s going beyond tropes of “big data” — improving the quality of the data analyzed as the quantity of this data being made available continues to spike — and it’s increasingly becoming a story of data velocity. It’s more than “more data that’s better structured,” it’s that more data is coming in more quickly, all the time. In their latest report, Forrester looks at their past research and at their Forrester Wave reports, analysis of client needs, and conducts both vendor and expert interviews to look at the best solutions in the enterprise data virtualization space. The report features vendor rankings, looking at the various offerings, firm strategies, and market footprint and impression for the 13 main vendors in this space.

Benefits of Kubernetes on bare metal cloud infrastructure

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.

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.

Virtualizing Broadband Networks: Q&A with Tom Cloonan and David Grubb

Article | June 11, 2020

The future of broadband networks is fast, pervasive, reliable, and increasingly, virtual. Dell’Oro predicts that virtual CMTS/CCAP revenue will grow from $90 million in 2019 to $418 million worldwide in 2024. While network virtualization is still in its earliest stages of deployment, many operators have begun building their strategy for virtualizing one or more components of their broadband networks.

Researchers Explore Details of Critical VMware Vulnerability

Article | April 17, 2020

Researchers have published the details of an investigation into CVE-2020-3952, a major vulnerability in VMware's vCenter that was disclosed and patched on April 9. The flaw was given a CVSS score of 10. CVE-2020-3952 exists in VMware's Directory Service (vmdir), which is a part of VMware vCenter Server, a centralized management platform for virtualized hosts and virtual machines. Through vCenter Server, the company says, an administrator can manage hundreds of workloads. The platform uses single sign-on (SSO), which includes vmdir, Security Token Service, an administration server, and the vCenter Lookup Service. Vmdir is also used for certificate management for the workloads vCenter handles.
