6 criteria for evaluating a high-performance cloud services providers Engineering, scientific, analytics, big data and research workloads place extraordinary demands on technical and high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure. Supporting these workloads can be especially challenging for organizations that have unpredictable spikes in resource demand, or need access to additional compute or storage resources for a project or to support a growing business. Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) enables organizations to deliver HPC services in the most efficient way possible, optimizing resource utilization to accelerate time to results and reduce costs. SDI is the foundation for a fully integrated environment, optimizing compute, storage and networking infrastructure to quickly adapt to changing business requirements, and dynamically managing workloads and data, transforming a s

Big data applications represent a fast-growing category of high-value applications that are increasingly employed by business and technical computing users. However, they have exposed an inconvenient dichotomy in the way resources are utilized in data centers. Conventional enterprise and web-based applications can be executed efficiently in virtualized server environments, where resource management and scheduling is generally confined to a single server. By contrast, data-intensive analytics and technical simulations demand large aggregated resources, necessitating intelligent scheduling and resource management that spans a computer cluster, cloud, or entire data center. Although these tools exist in isolation, they are not available in a general-purpose framework that allows them to inter operate easily and automatically within existing IT infrastructure.

Distributed cloud architectures will play an important role in Communication Service Providers’ network transformations. The distributed cloud will be made of numerous edge locations, from the customer premises to mobile base stations to central offices, each of which has its benefits and constraints. CSPs will need to consider attributes such as performance, availability, security, integration, and data and traffic volume to optimize the infrastructure for a myriad of workloads.

"This Ovum white paper is sponsored by Juniper Networks. It reveals that organisations need to update and upgrade their cybersecurity postures to defend themselves against today's threats. More than 80% of organisations in Asia are not protected against today's threats. Many of them depend on security investments made years ago, which cannot defend against new and emerging threats. The arrival of new technologies including cloud computing, the Internet of Things, mobility, bring your own device (BYOD), and social media have massively increased attack surfaces and expanded the threat landscape. Over the past two years, there has been a global infestation of ransomware attacks, which have wrought destruction across a growing number of businesses. Crypto-jacking, attacks on critical infrastructure, and data exfiltration are now commonly affecting businesses and consumers alike. The financial impact of these attacks is increasing rapidly and has already cost some organisations hundreds o

Compiling a cloud services comparison is a daunting task in the rapidlyevolving cloud environment. There are thousands of cloud services, dozens of cloud service providers, and numerous Infrastructure-as-aService (IaaS) providers offering pay-as-you-go pricing models—each one frequently changing and upgrading their portfolios. We have chosen to limit our cloud services comparison to the top three IaaS providers providing service in the Western Hemisphere—Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP)—because, not only are these the IaaS providers most organizations are familiar with, they are also the IaaS providers whose services most organizations are likely to compare. This eBook provides an introduction to the range of services offered by the leading cloud service providers, information on regions and availability zones, a breakdown of cloud storage services, and more, to help inform you on your multicloud journey.

Public clouds have fundamentally changed the way organizations build, operate, and manage applications. Security for applications in the cloud is composed of hundreds of configuration parameters and is vastly different from security in traditional data centers. According to Gartner, “Through 2020, at least 95% of cloud breaches will be due to customer misconfiguration, mismanaged credentials or insider theft, not cloud provider vulnerabilities”1. The uniqueness of cloud requires that security teams rethink classic security concepts and adopt approaches that address serverless, dynamic, and distributed cloud infrastructure. This includes rethinking security practices across asset management, compliance, change management, issue investigation, and incident response, as well as training and education. We interviewed several security experts and asked them how public cloud transformation has changed their cloud security and compliance responsibilities. In this e-book, we will share the top

A number of recent surveys indicate that cloud costs are becoming a major concern for businesses, many of whom have found cloud computing to be more expensive than they thought. The surveys align with Gartner’s 2017 prediction that “through 2020, 80% of businesses will overshoot their cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) budgets due to a lack of cost optimization approaches”. This could be due to a lack of understanding about cloud pricing, or a lack of knowledge about the full range of measures that can be taken to reduce cloud costs. The one area in which businesses are struggling to control costs more than any other is the hybrid cloud. Analysts attribute hybrid cloud overspend to the complexity of operating a private or public cloud in conjunction with an on-premises infrastructure. Businesses using VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS don’t experience as much operational complexity in their hybrid environments, but they can still be guilty of overspending. This eBook will offer 6 Ways to

Skilled IT teams understand that one cloud does not fit all. Compliance issues may demand that some data be held internally. Budget-imposed total cost of ownership (TCO) limits may push other data out to public clouds. Hence, a scalable multi-cloud infrastructure becomes imperative. This whitepaper addresses key questions commonly raised by CIOs considering the move to multi-cloud. Further, it sheds light on how Intel® technologies such as the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory can help boost your cloud credentials.

This paper examines how cities are using cloud technology to address public challenges, using the framework of the global coalition, Smart Cities Council. This framework promotes three core values for smart cities: livability, providing clean, healthy living conditions without pollution and congestion; workability, providing an enabling infrastructure (energy, transportation, internet connectivity) and high-quality jobs; and sustainability, doing so at no cost to future generations, as the Council puts it. This paper proposes a fourth core value, inclusivity: provisioning services to all city residents regardless of their background.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers scalable, cost-efficient cloud services that public sector customers can use to meet mandates, reduce costs, drive efficiencies, and accelerate innovation. The procurement of an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud is unlike traditional technology purchasing. Traditional public sector procurement and contracting approaches that are designed to purchase products, such as hardware and related software, can be inconsistent with cloud services (like IaaS). A failure to modernize contracting and procurement approaches can reduce the pool of competitors and inhibit customer ability to adopt and leverage cloud technology.
