Datacentre transformation and the Cloud

Cloud Computing is popularly understood from the user perspective, meaning software as a service provided over the Internet and not hosted on the user’s own infrastructure. As such the user pays only for the actual usage and can avoid unnecessary capital expenditure.
But the principle can also apply to a large enterprise that chooses to create its own cloud by consolidating resources into a datacentre accessible across the corporate WAN and then extending access across the Internet to serve its mobile workforce, partners or customers. Whether the datacentre is consolidated physically or virtually becomes less of an issue than the relationship between the corporate WAN and the wider Internet availability. When providing services such as social networking, search engines, auction sites etc, the entire business moves into the cloud...

What does Green IT really mean for the enterprise?

John Doe, Network Manager, Acme Enterprises, has a problem. Acme’s post-merger board has gone all green and they want an urgent review of the IT Department’s carbon footprint plus short and long-term plans for reducing the corporation’s environmental impact. He’s found it’s about rather more than energy saver lightbulbs and recycled paper, and has called a meeting with leading Outsourcing applications on the cloud sounds a great way to reduce internal energy usage, but is he just paying the cloud to burn carbon instead? Is it better to run processors in-house and hook up to a sustainable energy supply? What are the hardware manufacturers doing to provide more efficient and recyclable products? There are so many unknowns...

Coming soon to a screen near you - the future of video

What will be the business, and societal, impact of mobile telepresence? How will video be delivered to the handset, let alone ultra HDTV to the home? When will the desktop be the dominant locale for affordable multiparty video conferencing and when will we see mobile deployment in LTE and WiMAX settings? What sort of backbone technology can bear the load?

40/100Gb Ethernet, times four or times ten? What is the best way forward for Ethernet

Those who reckoned that 100Gig Ethernet was overkill in a world still migrating to 10Gigs, were taken aback by CIR’s recent report that huge companies like Google and Amazon already have a "desperate need" for 100Gb connections and that early adoption of the costly new technology would not be held back by the current economic climate. So what about those who say ”why bother with 40Gigs when 100Gb is on its way?” According to CIR, the adoption of 40GbE is predicted to start in high-end servers and high-performance comput- ing applications, and up to 80% of the market will be SR4 until CR4 over-copper becomes more viable. But both will rapidly lose share once serial 40Gbit Ethernet becomes a reality in 2014

Management & security issues for Cloud Computing

Cloud computing services are being touted as a panacea, as a way to flexibly deploy services and reduce costs.But what is the reality when it comes to security? How can enterprises properly evalu- ate cloud-based security offerings to ensure they truly support an appropriate security architecture, as well as consistently offer acceptable protection levels and response times? What assurances and metrics exist to protect sensitive and personal information? Are these services equal to, better or worse than the alternatives, namely on-premise managed security services or in-house enterprise security practices?
