With all the hype around cloud these days, figuring out where cloud fits and where it doesn’t can be challenging. Private cloud and virtualization often get confused with each other, but in fact, virtualization is usually a component of cloud, whether public or private. Let’s consider a couple of real-world examples to illustrate the difference between virtualization and a true private cloud deployment.

How Are You Addressing Data Privacy Compliance On-Prem?

Article | August 8, 2021

The growth of data privacy regulation around the world is changing how companies store data. But what if something that has to stay the same is your on-prem data center? This article will cover data privacy in the data center, looking at both the drivers keeping personal data on-prem, the challenges to meeting data privacy regulations in the data center, and show how NetApp Cloud Data Sense’s new support for NetApp appliances and on-prem databases can massively reduce the burden of compliance for on-prem deployments. Why Some Data Needs to Stay On-Prem Reasons for Data to Stay On-Prem Public sector guidelines Performance concerns Specific expertise on premises Barriers to migration There are a number of different reasons why companies may choose not to move data to the cloud. While these reasons are primarily due to business concerns, any personal data that is stored on-prem is going to need to stay compliant with the growing number of private data regulations in force today. Public sector guidelines Data localization can be a factor for a number of reasons. Some localities require data to be protected in redundant format, specifically using on-prem machines. There are also some regulations, such as GDPR, which limits the transfer of data out of a specific region. That can be limiting for cloud deployment, and make staying on-prem more attractive. Performance concernsThe highest performance for your data is using the machine closest to the data. In the cloud, there are high performance options available, but some companies may not want to lose the superior performance that having data and compute on the same in-house appliance provides.

CEO Perspective: Are You Ready for the Cloud

Article | March 31, 2020

It may be obvious, but I have to say the cloud -- particularly a cloud data analytics stack. It is the only way for companies to efficiently and effectively combine data from all the myriad sources and analyze it together. Cloud data warehouses (CDWs) are experiencing incredible traction, and I believe we will continue to see a sharp trajectory for them and the various technologies associated with them, from the pipeline funneling all the data into the CDW to the cloud analytics and business intelligence (BI) software that enables you to access and analyze the data in real-time (like Sigma, the company I lead).CDWs have taken off for a number of reasons: scalability, flexibility, lower costs, and connectivity, which are benefits presented by most cloud technologies. Furthermore, by storing all data in one place, organizations don't have to deal with the complexity of searching various discrete business systems and data stores to locate the relevant data.

How 5G and edge computing can enhance virtual reality

Article | April 8, 2020

The telecom industry has always evolved to take advantage of newer, better technologies as they become available starting with 1G and evolving into 4G, and now 5G. In fact, the pace of technology adoption will accelerate with 5G. Technologies such as virtualization, cloud native, cloud computing, edge computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, network slicing, automation, management and orchestration are all key components in enabling the use cases and business models that are expected to come with 5G. These technologies will contribute to the high-performance, high-capacity, high-reliability and low-latency associated with 5G, all delivered at a low total cost of ownership (TCO). This combination of high performance and low TCO is essential, both in addressing the exponential growth in data traffic and in handling the increasing number of IoT devices.
