The 4th Industrial Revolution: Digitally Transformed Workloads

This blog was co-authored with Bright Computing Increasingly, engineers and infrastructure administrators are looking for workload agility. But what exactly is workload agility? First, let’s define workload. Workloads are the computing tasks that employees initiate on systems to complete their companies’ missions. Precision Medicine, Semiconductor Design, Digital Pathology, Connected Mobility, Quantitative Research, and Autonomous Driving are all examples of compute-intensive workloads that are typically deployed on computing infrastructure. “Workload agility,” then, refers to the ability to seamlessly spin up resources to complete any of your companies required compute intensive tasks. In an ideal world, dedicated and … READ MORE

Data Protection Complexity – The Enemy of Innovation

Few would argue that organizations are becoming increasingly dependent on data to fuel innovation, drive new revenue streams and provide deep insight into the needs of their customers, partners and stakeholders. Yet despite the increased investments to safeguard data and keep mission-critical application services highly available across multi-cloud environments, we are witnessing a steady uptick in application downtime and data loss across organizations of all sizes. This is resulting in lost revenue, lost employee productivity and lost opportunities. According to the 2020 Global Data Protection Index (GDPI) snapshot survey, 82 percent of the respondents reported experiencing … READ MORE

Tomorrow’s Forecast: Cloudy With a 90% Chance of Containers

Remember the old days—back in late 2018—when your biggest question was whether a particular workload should live in the public cloud or in your data center? Today, the industry is moving quickly toward containerized, cloud native applications running in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. The same app is often distributed across multiple locations. The challenge of managing modern distributed apps across multiple clouds is real and made more challenging today by the use of Kubernetes services across private cloud and public cloud providers. Data centers continue to be critical for organizations’ IT operations, and organizations are looking … READ MORE
