Back in 2010, James Kuffner, coined the term “cloud robotics” while working at Google. Since then years have gone by and Google has since tested various cloud robotics efforts, and is going full-bore in 2019 with the launch of the Google Cloud Robotics Platform for developers. Details of the much awaited launch are somewhat scarce at the moment but industry honchos say that the timing is right for the launch, thanks to the maturing of both the robotics market and Google Cloud products. The market is live with discussions like Robotics and the Cloud (RaaS) are like peanut butter and jelly, making the awaited integration more exciting. According to the Google Cloud Robotics Platform website, the platform combines AI, the cloud and robotics to enable an open ecosystem of automation solutions that deploy cloud-connected collaborative robots. Google’s AI and ML services will foresee the unpredictable physical world and enable efficient robotic automation in highly dynamic environments.

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.
