Distributed cloud architectures will play an important role in Communication Service Providers’ network transformations. The distributed cloud will be made of numerous edge locations, from the customer premises to mobile base stations to central offices, each of which has its benefits and constraints. CSPs will need to consider attributes such as performance, availability, security, integration, and data and traffic volume to optimize the infrastructure for a myriad of workloads. Learn more about Heavy Reading’s survey results on CSPs adopting a distributed cloud strategy and delivering new services in this white paper.
5G services will place greater demands on the network in terms of peak data rates, connection density, and more. Learn how CoSPs are getting ready for 5G and how Intel® architecture is helping accelerate network transformation.
Businesses increasingly see cloud as the best route to enhanced agility and digital transformation. But this survey reveals that keeping the lid on cloud costs is far from straightforward.
Read this report to discover:
• whether businesses are realising the benefits they anticipated from cloud migration
• how effective companies are at managing cloud investments
• the risks and consequences of getting locked into inefficient architectures.
“We ruled out Zscaler due to its overly complex architecture and PAC file requirements. The ongoing management would have been a nightmare.” - Marc Tournier, Information Security and Compliance Manager (CISO), Avril Group
The stakes are high in today's data centers. Organisations have access to massive quantities of data promising valuable insights and new opportunities for business. But data center architects need to rethink and redesign their system architectures to ingest, store and process all that information. Similarly, application owners need to assess how they can process data more effectively. Those who don't re-architect might find themselves scrambling just to keep from being drowned in a data deluge.
Mountains of data promise valuable insights and innovation for businesses that rethink and redesign their system architectures. But companies that don’t re-architect might find themselves scrambling just to keep from being buried in the avalanche of data.
The problem is not just in storing raw data, though. For businesses to stay competitive, they need to quickly and cost-effectively access and process all that data for business insights, research, artificial intelligence (AI), and other uses. Both memory and storage are required to enable this level of processing, and companies struggle to balance high costs against limited capacities and performance constraints.
The challenge is even more daunting because different types of memory and storage are required for different workloads. Furthermore, multiple technologies might be used together to achieve the optimal tradeoff in cost versus performance.
Intel is addressing these challenges with new memory and storage technologies that emp
Agile Integration Methodology: Container-Based and Microservices-Aligned Lightweight Integration Runtimes - This paper explores the merits of agile integration architecture--a container-based, decentralized, and microservices-aligned approach for integration solutions that meets the demands of agility, scalability, and resilience required by digital transformation.
Agile Integration Architecture: The Handbook for all of your lightweight integration needs. In this book you will learn:

- Exploring agile integration architecture in detail
-Moving forward with an agile integration architecture
IBM and Red Hat provide a range of technology and services that can support their customers’ IT and development needs. IBM commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct an emerging Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) technology assessment study to examine the ways in which customers utilize solutions by both companies in tandem and the impacts achieved as a result. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of solutions using both IBM and Red Hat offerings on their organizations.
Forrester interviewed five organizations that use IBM and Red Hat offerings together. These interviewees are focused on modernizing infrastructure and applications to resolve legacy architecture challenges and meet quickly changing market needs. These companies adopted a wide range of solutions from IBM (including IBM Power, IBM Z, IBM Cloud Paks, middleware, and professional services) and Red Hat (including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, OpenShift, JBoss, a
Infinidat provides the difference you seek in a data storage solution for media and entertainment organizations. New demands have everyone in the industry feeling the impact of high latency storage and its impact on efficiently delivering speed to market on new and dense workload management. The Infinidat unified storage architecture enables the scale, performance and best overall TCO required to deliver an extreme competitive advantage to media and entertainment companies.
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.
More data means more opportunities to discover powerful, actionable insights around customers, internal processes, and the broad market. Unfortunately, legacy IT architectures and approaches can block progressive analytics efforts.
That leaves a lot of room for improvement, and the learning and investment curve for starting in analytics can be steep. However, tending to three core steps will prove immensely helpful on this journey:
• Establishing an organizational foundation
• Mapping the data pipeline
• Transitioning analytics proofs of concept into production
