The cloud heralds a new era of computing where application services are provided through the Internet. Cloud computing can enhance the computing capability of mobile systems, but is it the ultimate solution for extending such system’s battery lifetimes. Cloud computing1 is a new paradigm in which computing resources such as processing, memory, and storage are not physically present at the user’s location. Instead, a service provider owns and manages these resources, and users access them via the Internet. For example, Amazon Web Services lets users store personal data via its Simple Storage Service (S3) and perform computations on stored data using the Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). This type of computing provides many advantages for businesses—including low initial capital investment, shorter start-up time for new services, lower maintenance and operation costs, higher utilization through virtualization, and easier disaster recovery—that make cloud computing an attractive option. Reports suggest that there are several benefits in shifting computing from the desktop to the cloud.1, 2. The primary constraints for mobile computing are limited energy and wireless bandwidth. Cloud computing can provide energy savings as a service to mobile users, though it also poses some unique challenges

How to leverage the value of edge network opportunities

Article | February 17, 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.

What Is the Right Level of Cloud to Handle Data Sharing Needs

Article | February 11, 2020

Moving email and collaboration tools to the cloud was relatively simple for federal agencies, compared to the next project: moving data.As more agencies look to share data and collaborate more closely, solving the challenges of how to store data in a way that makes it accessible and usable to multiple agencies are becoming more urgent.In many cases, it’s not the technology that’s the difficult piece, it’s bringing the organization together on a different architecture. Cloud is not new at this point,” said Beth Halloran, deputy CIO at the General Services Administration, at Cloudera’s recent Data Cloud Summit.You can’t just say, ‘It’s going to save us money by going into the cloud,” she continued. “You have to understand what level of cloud is going to save you money, and infrastructure and services is not it. It’s part of an ecosystem, and you’re going to have to look at the totality of doing it.
