Big data describes data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using traditional data processing methods like everyday databases. The sheer volume of data being tracked today is immense. One of the biggest challenges large organizations will face over the next decade will be finding ways to better analyze, monetize, and capitalize on Big Data. Businesses need a partner that can address the entire spectrum: data assessment, data retention, and data use requirements of this new environment. This Big Data revolution is letting companies identify trends, ine¬fficiencies, IT security issues and opportunities, but it requires work, the right technology, and some sharp minds to find the valuable needles in the haystacks of raw data. 53% of big businesses are active in big data mining with 62% of large businesses currently storing at least 100 TB of data. 32% of business said they expect to double the amount of data they store in the next two to three years. Find out more about Big Data storage solutions or the cloud computing solutions that are available.

Cloud Computing The disruptive shift to cloud for the long-term investor

Article | March 5, 2020

The public cloud services market is expected to total more than $214 billion when the figures for 2019 are finalised.The Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) segment of cloud is expected to have grown nearly 30% during 2019. If you haven’t heard of “IaaS”, that’s ok, just think of “Amazon Web Services” or “Microsoft Azure” as some of the biggest players in IaaS. In 2019, the U.S. Department of Defence even entered into a $10 billion contract with Microsoft Azure to move to the cloud, offering yet another proof point on the perceived convenience and security of using cloud-based infrastructure. In August of 2011, Marc Andreessen, a prominent Silicon Valley venture capitalist, wrote the phrase “software is eating the world” within a Wall Street Journal article[3]. Even then, now more than eight years ago, the case was clear that companies in Silicon Valley were relying less and less on delivering a physical “product” and more and more on delivering some type of software over the internet.

Article | February 27, 2020

Today, almost every company across diverse industries leverage some kind of cloud infrastructure for efficient business. Cloud computing now has become mainstream as most organizations’ IT ecosystems adopt public and private cloud, alongside traditional IT practices. Moreover, many businesses also believe the hybrid cloud environment will assist them in addressing the challenges of these distinct infrastructures.As a wide array of cloud offerings available in the market, companies are often left besieged with conflicting pressures, ranging from cost management and security to vendor lock-in concerns. However, easing these challenges requires a grave step that several organizations are investing in when they plan for cloud adoption and that is a robust cloud governance model based on a wary assessment of long-term needs.Many businesses around the world are now realizing the importance of a multi-cloud strategy, and its demand is increasing rapidly. In a 2017 State of the SaaS-Powered Workplace report, companies use an average of 16 Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) apps, where 73 percent of businesses believed over 80 percent of their apps will be SaaS by 2020.

How 5G will change cloud computing

Article | February 12, 2020

A technology that has more misinformation around it than anything I have seen before. Much of this bad data is focused on cloud computing.The reality is that it will take a while to roll out 5G. We need to upgrade our phones, cell towers, network devices, and more, and that will not happen overnight. Moreover, the dollars it will require will not be easily extracted from most enterprises.Of course, there are many predictions about how cloud computing will change in a 5G world, most of which are dead wrong. Tech pundits are calling for 5G to light edge computing on fire and take share away from the public clouds. Both will grow rapidly.Any technology change, including 5G, will transform the use of other technologies along with cloud computing. However, what is likely to change is not as disruptive as most 5G fanboys think. Here are two ways 5G will change cloud computing.First, cloud access will spread everywhere. We have bandwidth deserts out there in mostly rural, less populated areas, where access to the Internet is non-existent or sub-10Gb/s down, with 1Gb/s up. You cannot do much with that as a business connected to an IaaS cloud provider; data transfer latency will just be too high. 5G holds the promise of eliminating bandwidth deserts and freeing business now in rural, underserved areas to leverage cloud computing, and thus expand the cloud computing market with 5G.
