Made popular by startups that wanted to reduce their upfront infrastructure costs, the public cloud offered an easy opex method to get development efforts off the ground. Public cloud providers now allow enterprises of all types to focus on the devops practices that thrive in that environment. But the public cloud is not worry-free, especially from a cost perspective. Some factors, such as bandwidth, are well known and typically included in business models. But there continue to be stories about public cloud budget blowouts. If you’re in a group that needs to reduce the cost structure of your devops efforts, read on and see if you’re overlooking any of these five tips. The public cloud operates in principle on a pay-per-use model, but one reason cost overruns are common is a simple failure to shut down VMs. The question is when to turn off the lights.

How to leverage the value of edge network opportunities

Article | March 4, 2020

The network computing chain faces a changing reality over the coming years. According to the latest version of the Ericsson Mobility Report, a surge in consumer device capabilities and data-intensive content will see global data traffic rise fourfold by 2025. Industries, entering the fray for the first time, will place ultra-low-latency and high-privacy demands on the network through time-critical and massive-data use cases such as autonomous transport, remote robotics, smart factories and cross reality.In all of these cases, the place at which the data is processed whether it be in a centralized data center or at the edge of cloud will have an immense impact on both latency and how the massive amounts of data are managed. Not only do these factors impact enterprise and network efficiency, but they will soon be critical in safeguarding human life.

NetFoundry Extends Edge Computing and Private 5G Use Cases via Integration with Azure Edge Zones

Article | March 4, 2020

NetFoundry has announced a new embedded networking solution within Microsoft Azure Edge Zones. According to NetFoundry, the integration will allow businesses to easily and securely tap into the power of edge compute and optional private 5G for use cases, including industrial IoT, near-real time video processing, and analytics.Microsoft Azure Private Edge Zones enable application workloads to span edges and clouds with a common Azure experience, APIs, and security. NetFoundry's integration facilitates direct connections between businesses and Azure Private Edge Zones without deploying extra network gear. This capability is particularly important at edge sites that often lack space, power, and cooling. With the NetFoundry embedded networking solution, all applications, from edge to cloud, can use any Internet connection, instantly joining a NetFoundry-powered zero trust, high-performance network. Zero trust security is an industry-accepted architecture that assumes "zero trust" of actors and protocols both outside and inside an organization.The NetFoundry platform enables businesses to securely and reliably connect distributed compute environments, providing zero trust, high-performance networking as a service (NaaS) from edge to cloud, and everywhere in between.

Can edge computing solve the problems with organ donation

Article | March 4, 2020

We are currently in an era of cloud computing, where the infrastructure, hosting, machine learning and compute power of cloud providers deliver hosted access to a wide range of centralized services to process and manage our data.With edge computing, the processing and management of data happens closer to the actual source of the data, instead of the data first having to be sent to the cloud to be processed. A typical example would be for IoT devices to collect and transfer data to a local device that includes small-scale compute, storage and network connectivity for local processing of the data at the edge before being passed to the cloud.
