BrandPost: Solving the cloud placement puzzle requires science, not guesswork

The rush to the cloud is well underway. According to a 2016 IDG Enterprise Cloud Computing Survey of IT leaders, 45% of their IT environments was hosted in a private, public, or hybrid cloud environment. Cloud vendors are responding to the demand with a dizzying array of options which routinely lead to costly over-provisioning and sub-optimal configurations. Assessing options even within a single cloud provider can be complex business, let alone comparing alternatives across providers.

The key to doing it right is to move beyond the surface-level assessment, rules of thumb, or plain old guesswork that most organizations employ. Using scientific analysis of workload requirements, crossed against the various hosting and service offerings from different cloud providers, can result in substantial savings of up to 80%, while dramatically reducing application risk.

BrandPost: 5G – A Few Frequency Facts

Bigger swaths of spectrum are crucial to accommodate the massive increase in data usage produced by people and devices consuming more data than ever. For 5G to power these devices and sensors in the near future, it will need a lot more breathing room on the airwaves to acquire the bandwidth needed; refer to my previous blog 5G – Better Broadband Bandwidth.  

Wireless spectrum is the oxygen that keeps the network alive, and more spectrum will allow 5G to deliver its full potential. 

While 5G will be much more efficient than prior network technologies, history and physics pose several challenges that need to be worked around or through in order to deliver on the promise of “wireless fiber.” This blog explores a few frequency facts surrounding the next generation of wireless connectivity.
