The top three stumbling blocks for cloud transformation programs

Operators, globally, are rapidly embarking on their evolution towards being digital service providers. If you’re one of them, it’s high time to begin your own digital transformation so that you are positioned to help your customers achieve theirs. That means updating your services, network, infrastructure, and operations to become agile and accelerate innovation. The cloud, in all it fuzzy definitions, is an integral part of achieving the digital transformation. A successful Cloud Transformation will create the necessary foundation for the digital service provider of the future.

Ericsson Cloud Blog becomes Future Digital Blog

It’s sometimes hard not to get whiplash due to the speed by which industries and markets are evolving. That’s why so many of us turn to blogs to help keep us informed. And that’s why we’re pleased to announce that the Ericsson Cloud Blog and the IT/OSS/BSS Blog have joined forces to create the Future Digital Blog, where we’ll discuss all things digital.

Distributed Systems — challenging but necessary

In a world of billions of IoT devices producing data — which in many cases must be acted upon within milliseconds — distributed network, compute and data capabilities become increasingly important. 

Do you have the right storage infrastructure to accommodate constant change?

IT vendors love their superlatives… you’ve heard it before…  “Data is growing at an exponential rate and by the year 2020, we’ll have a gazillion zeta-bytes of new data created every day." But if you look past the hyperbole, the creation of data is growing. But beyond just transporting and storing that data, what’s more important is the value that’s embedded in the data and how businesses are able to extract that value in real-time. That holds true across industries: manufacturing companies deploying IoT solutions, financial services companies trading securities and managing risk, enterprises looking for and preventing cyber threats, eCommerce companies with real-time marketing, and the list goes on and on.

How to include your legacy systems in our hyperscale vPODs

Did you know that you can include certain legacy servers in the virtual performance-optimized datacenters (vPODs) configured by our hyperscale system (Ericsson Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000)? In fact, if they speak either Internet Management Protocol Interface (IPMI) 2.0 or the Pooled Systems Management Engine (PSME) protocol, we treat them as first-class vPOD citizens, with the same capabilities as our rack- and sled-based resources, including no degradation in performance.

Are you ready for the internet of carbon (IoC)?

Someday, humans might be connected directly to the internet. It will be the final step of a process that has been going on for a long time. But if we're smart, we'll have the proper infrastructure built far in advance.

White Walkers and the Internet of Things

The White Walkers are coming. So is the Internet of Things (IoT). In both cases, the real danger is denial.

What is happening in the cloud marketplace?

Two markets are growing for Intel®: hyperscale cloud providers and telecom. The enterprise datacenter is in decline from a chip-buying perspective. As a result, the most interesting leading-edge development and testing are going to happen in a cloud, not on a laptop, because that's where the latest chip will be.

How to cool a datacenter

Electronic components generate a lot of heat. Keeping them cool can get expensive. Let's discuss some options.

Winterfell would be a great place for a datacenter

The future of datacenters may be remotely located, naturally cooled, self-contained systems. Just like Castle Winterfell.

What is happening with virtualization inside datacenters?

In 2006, people became interested in running different operating systems on top of their PC operating system. VMware provided an all-software solution using a technique called binary translation. With it, you could run Windows on a Mac and macOS on a Windows PC, and it helped people deal with operating system heterogeneity. But it consumed a lot of CPU cycles and memory.
