How far we’ve come (and how far we still need to go)

Take backup, for instance. Back when I started my career 30+ years ago, part of my IT role was performing backups overnight for a large company in London. I remember carrying boxes of tapes all the way down Oxford Street to a secure location. I used to wonder how long it would take to recover from an outage if one occurred. So many elements would have to work perfectly including physically transferring the tapes back to the datacenter, loading the data then getting all the applications and systems operational. Would the process work, how long would it take, what could go wrong, had we identified and mitigated all the potential risks? In the years I worked in that role, I don’t recall anybody ever testing the backup & recover process! https://community.hpe.com/t5/Transforming-IT/Modernize-IT-Operations-Meet-HPE-Datacenter-Care/ba-p/7022078#.W_QaItUzapp

Extend Your Wi-Fi Everywhere

A university is building a new science and engineering center a couple of blocks from the main campus. Options for connecting the new buildings to the rest of campus are limited.

The university can dig up the street to connect the new buildings to the campus fiber ring, but digging up the streets is expensive, highly disruptive and requires permits which at times are not feasible. It could use point-to-point solution, but getting a reliable, high-quality point-to-point microwave link is challenging and requires a careful design and installation by skilled RF engineers. Again, more cost and time. And when it rains, the signal can fade.

But there’s another option for fast point-to-point wireless: 802.11ad, which operates at 60 GHz.

Now, the university can quickly and easily connect its new buildings to the main campus at 1 Gbps or higher CONTINUE READING

5 big data and analytics trends to watch in 2019

Big data and analytics have become the backbone of business. But will that spine grow and mature, or will it morph the shape of business—again? Here is a look at the year ahead.

It wasn’t so long ago that big data was a shiny new phenomenon promising a take-no-prisoners business takeover. Now that data and analytics are vital to business and deeply entrenched, the question is whether the technology will grow and mature in 2019, be replaced by something else, or continue to reshape businesses in new and interesting ways.

The answer may be some of each, as it turns out. Here are the top predictions of what we can expect next year.

Big data is dead, long live big data

Back in 2017, Mark Beyer, an analyst at Gartner, wrote big data’s obituary: “Rest in pieces…in all those other technologies where you belong.” Svetlana Sicular, another Gartner analyst, reiterated Beyer’s assessment in a blog post, saying the information behemoth, or at least its moniker, is indeed dead, “because we still get questions about what Gartner thinks about the big data fate. Big data became the new normal, and now it is just data.” READ MORE
