Given that the IT infrastructure of today nearly always spans outside of a centralized model, the challenge is how to manage an incredibly fluid, frequently mixed, and deeply cloud-enabled landscape – from desktop to data center, to edge, to the cloud. Jim Dowson of Park View Managed Services, deliberates how some IT Asset Management (ITAM) tools are no longer fit for purpose in the digital age where agility, speed, access, and automation are pre-requisites for widescale transformational app rollouts.
Insights: Internet of Things
The Internet of Things will create millions of connected devices, generating data from homes, cars and the vast reaches of industrial infrastructure. Data will be everywhere, and many of the new digital conversations will involve machines talking to other machines. It will have major implications for the data center industry, requiring infrastructure in locations that have not traditionally been business markets for data centers. These technologies will be rolled out over many years, as users gradually wrap their arms around the rapidly-growing universe of protocols, applications and use cases.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is providing a delivery platform for new applications from its satellite data customers, including LOTS of earth observation imagery. Here’s a closer look at the AWS cloud’s growing business in space data.
As Hurricane Ida illustrates, real-time weather data collection and accurate forecasting are essential for protecting lives and property. New satellites are providing imaging data that can help refine weather modeling and forecasts.
Satellite specialist SES is touting its medium Earth orbit (MEO) O3b mPOWER network as a “goldilocks” broadband satellite solution, offering advantages over geosynchronous Earth orbit (GEO) and low Earth orbit (LEO) constellations from SpaceX, OneWeb, and Telesat.
This white paper from Anritsu outlines the PCI Express (PCIe) 6.0 standards slated for finalization by PCI-SIG in 2021. The paper covers the enhanced PCIe 6.0 technologies and provides guidelines on selecting the proper test solutions to verify PCIe 6.0 designs.
A SpaceX rocket launch conducted on June 30 will conservatively add 30 to 40 terabytes of data per day to cloud services around the world. The SpaceX launch deployed several satellites providing hosted IT services, serving as forerunners to dedicated data centers in the sky.
There are approximately 10 billion IoT devices in the world, and that number is expected to hit 75 billion by 2025. With so many connected devices, it is no wonder the amount of data created each day continues to spike upward. Jason Carolan, Chief Innovation Officer at Flexential, explores the importance of the edge when it comes to real-time data processing.
Raul Martynek, CEO at DataBank, refines the definition of edge computing. This is the first of a three-part series looking at the edge from the multiple perspectives of enterprises using and driving edge development: hyperscalers, SaaS application/ content developers, and network providers. In this article, we examine how hyperscale cloud providers see the edge and the role they are playing in its development.
Lasers beaming data between satellites in space will be a key enabler of broadband networks using low earth orbit (LEO) satellites, along with smart antennas that can track satellites in the sky. Here’s a closer look at these two technologies.
There is no better time to focus on data center solutions, connectivity, and ensuring our organizations stay secure than today. Timothy Miscovich, Chief Commercial Officer at WTEC, shares strategies and solutions to keep your data center safe.
