Intel® Rack Scale Design - a dramatic evolution in datacenter infrastructure

Data is the new life blood, and companies in every industry are putting data at the center of their business. This is the next wave of digital industrialization, and it requires a dramatic evolution in the way in which datacenter infrastructure is architected and managed.

Learn how blockchain guarantees data integrity for the Internet of Things

Each element of the Internet of Things chain - software, systems, infrastructure, and data – must have a third party-verifiable trust anchor. Traditional security solutions can't provide this. But a blockchain is a tamper-proof distributed database that can validate the data generated by IoT devices. Learn how the Ericsson Blockchain Data Integrity service provides detection of digital asset and data compromise. 

Red Hat, Ericsson and a shared vision of open innovation

The future of ICT for enterprises and operators will be defined by open, modern architectures spanning NFV, hybrid cloud, containers and software-defined infrastructure (SDI). Sharing a belief in the might of open source, Red Hat and Ericsson are collaborating upstream to develop capabilities that address current and future needs of both enterprise and telco IT.

What happens when digital industrialization changes your IT infrastructure?

Advances in cloud computing, plus the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, artificial intelligence, and automation, are dramatically altering not only how IT departments are employing cloud technology, but also the fundamental way the enterprise does business.

Intel® Rack Scale Design will be the new normal in cloud infrastructure

It's good to be first. But it's also nice to see others following your path.

This is how we feel about Intel Rack Scale Design. In 2014 Ericsson and Intel formed a partnership to modernize datacenters and make hyperscale, software-defined infrastructure available for all industries. We launched Ericsson Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000, the first commercial product based on Intel Rack Scale Design, in 2015 and it became broadly available in 2016. Now, it's possible to procure Intel Rack Scale Design systems from a broad vendor community.

Why new apps boost the need for Distributed Cloud Infrastructure

New, industrial grade, data-intensive applications create the need for a new, more decentralized infrastructure. This infrastructure will cater to the evolution of NFV as it comes to be deployed on all types of network sites. It must also provide new value to support application use cases.

What do digital leaders have in common? Exponential effectiveness.

What do all digital leaders have in common? Exponential effectiveness. Explore this theme and how it relates to the Intel Super 7 in a post based on a new paper I wrote with Jason Hoffman, the Head of Product Area Cloud Systems at Ericsson. In the paper, we took the 10 steps of emotional processing and applied them to what we call Future Digital. 

8 questions you need to ask about your legacy applications

When executives consider their applications, the maturity of those applications and whether they can help the business achieve its digital goals, there is often a big debate about which ones should be considered legacy applications and then how to evolve them. This is becoming a requirement in every single industry, so here is some guidance on how to recognize the problem and intelligently move your applications to the next level of maturity!
