Article by Pure Storage VP and field CTO for APJ, Mark Jobbins.   The cloud-first approach that characterised many organisations’ first forays into cloud has been replaced with a more pragmatic, strategic mix of public and private cloud plus on-premises storage based on the type and quantity of data being stored.  This has created a complex environment in which organisations have data spread across multiple environments. Managing this data effectively is essential to maintain its value and decrease complexity. Businesses need to simplify the data layer while gaining the flexibility to manage and protect data more efficiently. To do this, they need a solution that works across cloud, on-premises infrastructure, and a hybrid environment. Keeping the environment more straightforward reduces the risks of gaps in visibility, making it...

Dell tackles main pitfalls of managing edge computing: complexity, security and choice

Gil Shneorson Pierluca Chiodelli Dell Technologies World 2021
We all live on the edge — or at least close to it. Whether it’s the smart thermostat in your living room, the desktop computer in your home office, or the GPS in your car, most devices we rely on our in daily lives answer back to the cloud. With so many devices on the edge, however, managing each separate device, as well as the general infrastructure, can become a challenge. “What we see is not only the need of processing [artificial intelligence and machine learning] at the edge, but also the need of a new type of compute at the edge,” said Gil Shneorson (pictured, left), senior vice president of edge computing offers, strategy and execution at Dell Technologies Inc. “So in the past you would just send the data to the cloud. Now it’s a form of a new computer with [graphics processing unit] capability and other things to process the...

BRUSSELS, Belgium, April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Eclipse Foundation, one of the world’s largest open source software foundations, as well as the Edge Native Working Group, today announced the release of a new white paper entitled “EdgeOps: A New Vision For Edge Computing” The paper articulates a new approach for building software solutions for edge computing environments, with an emphasis on open source. EdgeOps is an adaptation of DevOps, with a focus on software, tooling and processes for edge computing environments. It specifically addresses the challenges of edge computing, such as power, security, latency, communication protocols, etc., and takes into account the characteristics of edge computing solutions and associated deployment approaches required in an edge environment. The white paper is available now as a free...
