Les concepteurs de centres de données, les directeurs de la construction et de l’exploitation sont souvent confrontés aux défis de savoir comment répondre ou gérer la demande croissante de capacité des centres de données. Les investissements et les rénovations ne sont pas rares. Dans de tels cas, une analyse financière ou technique est utilisée pour déterminer la meilleure option pour l’entreprise. Aujourd’hui, il existe une solution alternative pour la construction de centre de données, plus économique et plus facile à déployer : il s’agit des modules de centres de données préfabriqués conçus pour l’infrastructure rassemblant l’informatique, l’alimentation et le refroidissement.
Achieving long-term profitability for 5G will require a major shift in thinking for many operators. Given the investments and capacity upgrades involved, simply treating 5G as just “another G” is a doomed strategy. Instead, 5G must be seen as an opportunity to re-energize the Telco business model and to move away from traditional commoditized network offerings.

Digital transformation is a business enabler, one that also translates to an increase in the demand for greater storage capacity and performance. This increasing demand requires IT organizations to re-examine their data storage strategy as the growth in capacity doesn’t align with a shrinking IT budget. To support the growth of the business and remain competitive in a global digital market, CIOs are asked more than ever to “do more with less,” while improving performance and availability at the same time.
Infinidat® enterprise storage solutions are based upon the unique and patented Infinidat storage architecture—A fully abstracted set of Software-Defined Storage (SDS) functions integrated with the best-of-breed off-the-shelf commodity hardware. Infinidat’s software-focused architecture, an evolution and revolution in data management design over 30 years in the making, solves the conflicting requirements of bigger, faster, and less expensive. This paper discusses the technology that enables Infinidat to be the only enterprise storage provider that achieves multi-petabyte capacity with faster than all-flash performance (over 1.3M IOPS at microsecond latency) and an unprecedented seven-nines availability, all at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.
Infinidat has developed a storage platform that provides unique simplicity, efficiency, reliability, and extensibility that enhances the business value of large-scale OpenStack environments. The InfiniBox® platform is a pre-integrated solution that scales to multiple petabytes of effective capacity in a single 42U rack. The platform’s innovative combination of DRAM, flash, and capacity-optimized disk, delivers tuning-free, high performance for consolidated mixed workloads, including object/Swift, file/Manila, and block/Cinder. These factors combine to cut direct and indirect costs associated with large-scale OpenStack infrastructures, even versus “build-it-yourself” solutions. InfiniBox delivers seven nines (99.99999%) of availability without resorting to expensive replicas or slow erasure codes for data protection. Operations teams appreciate our delivery model designed to easily drop into workflows at all levels of the stack, including native Cinder integration, Ansible automation pl
La trasformazione digitale è un acceleratore di business che, fra le altre cose, sta portando ad un aumento della domanda per ottenere prestazioni migliori e una maggiore capacità di archiviazione. Tale domanda fa sì che le aziende debbano riesaminare la loro strategia di storage, poiché l’aumento della capacità storage non coincide con i sempre minori budget a disposizione del settore IT. Per poter sostenere lo sviluppo della propria attività commerciale e rimanere competitivi all’interno di un mercato digitale globale, ai CIO viene chiesto sempre più spesso di “fare di più con meno risorse” e, al contempo, di migliorare prestazioni e disponibilità.
Nonostante decenni di progresso industriale e tecnologico, ad oggi non esiste ancora una soluzione storage integrata e universale capace di ridurre i rischi, essere redditizia, eliminare le complessità e integrarsi perfettamente nel modus operandi del business e gestire i dati su larga scala.
Per raggiungere questi obiettivi, è necessario contare su determinate capacità, così da raggiungere i risultati ideali al minor costo possibile. Queste capacità includono la disponibilità, l’affi dabilità, le prestazioni, la densità, la facilità di gestione e l’integrazione dell’ecosistema nelle applicazioni. Questo documento presenta una soluzione innovativa nel panorama dello storage. Si possono così risolvere non solo i problemi di oggi, ma anche quelli di domani.
La transformation numérique est certes un levier de business, mais elle induit une augmentation de la demande de capacité de stockage et de performance. Cette augmentation de la demande oblige les organisations IT à réexaminer leur stratégie de stockage de données étant donné que la croissance de la capacité coïncide diffi cilement avec un budget IT de plus en plus serré. Pour accompagner la croissance des aff aires et demeurer compétitifs sur le marché numérique mondial, les DSI sont de plus en plus tenus d’en faire plus avec moins, tout en cherchant à améliorer la performance et la disponibilité.

Michelle has been with Twilio for nearly four years, supporting “Twilions” — as employees are affectionately known inside the company — through tremendous growth in both revenue and headcount. “We’re looking at creating a great employee experience at Twilio. We want to provide Twilions with the tools, resources, and experiences they need to innovate, scale, and grow.” BetterUp’s whole person approach was a key part of Michelle’s evaluation process. Most leadership development approaches focus on teaching people what to do. But what they miss is an equal focus on how to be. In contrast, BetterUp’s approach addresses the psychological resources that allow leaders to manage themselves so they have the capacity to manage others. This includes the ability to remain resilient, have a growth mindset, maintain a sense of control, and take risks. Evidence shows that these resources need to be in place for sustainable leadership habits to take root.
The European Union’s new regulatory framework for data protection laws, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), became enforceable on 25 May, 2018. Under GDPR, organisations have new obligations to improve the security and privacy practices for the personal data they collect and use. With these new obligations comes the potential for heavier fines and penalties. Fortunately, Amazon Web Services (AWS) can help guide your organisation toward compliance under the new requirements. Take advantage of our services, resources, and experts as you navigate these changes.
City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites: consider the local culture and the people, prioritize basic needs and requests, work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments, and consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system. A smart city reflects a number of aspirations: efficiency, resiliency, connectedness, innovation, and su
This paper examines how cities are using cloud technology to address public challenges, using the framework of the global coalition, Smart Cities Council. This framework promotes three core values for smart cities: livability, providing clean, healthy living conditions without pollution and congestion; workability, providing an enabling infrastructure (energy, transportation, internet connectivity) and high-quality jobs; and sustainability, doing so at no cost to future generations, as the Council puts it. This paper proposes a fourth core value, inclusivity: provisioning services to all city residents regardless of their background.
Government agencies often look to promote new technology for cost-savings and efficiency, but it does not stop there. The second and third-tier effects of technology can be long lasting for citizens, businesses, and economies. When public institutions adopt the cloud, they experience an internal transformation. Inside an organization, cloud usage drives greater accessibility of data and information sharing, increases worker productivity, and improves resource allocation. The external benefit of the cloud is recognized through a government’s ability to put reclaimed time and resources toward serving citizens. This includes provisioning public services, such as occupational-skills training, quicker and more effective service delivery, a pathway to a more productive workforce, and ultimately, a boost to local development. This whitepaper examines the enterprise-level benefits of the cloud, as well as the residual impact on economic development. The U.S. Economic Development Administration
In January 2016, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program released a draft of its high-impact baseline for moving federal data to the cloud. Not long after, Amazon Web Services (AWS) accepted an offer to pilot the new security threshold. AWS worked with FedRAMP to develop a set of standards under which highly sensitive government data could securely migrate into cloud environments. If ever you doubted that cloud computing was the new frontier for federal data and software management, look around. Over 2,300 government agencies worldwide have already migrated to the AWS Cloud. And in the U.S., this will only increase with the release of FedRAMP’s high baseline standards. Previously, CSPs could only become certified at a low or moderate baseline under FedRAMP, meaning agencies had no security baseline from which to spring their sensitive data into the cloud. These new standards effectively represent the fall of the final formal barrier to federal cloud computing. Terabytes o
