2018 Data Center Trends: Converged Infrastructure

Is converged infrastructure still an effective way to minimize data center complexities and provide companies with more agility? You bet! According to MarketsandMarkets, the converged infrastructure market is expected to be worth $33.89 billion by 2019.

We continue our blog series highlighting aspects of our newest e-book with our fourth blog on Converged Infrastructure, which shows no signs of slowing down this year and into the next. IDC Research has reported that HCI is the “largest segment of software-defined storage.” Additionally, software-defined storage (SDS) is the type of fast storage used in HCI, boasting a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.6% and revenues that are forecast to hit $7.15 billion in 2021.

Read our latest e-book to learn how software and hardware disaggregation are driving new product categories for next-generation data centers.

 

2018 Data Center Trends: Multi-Access Edge Computing

What do you use when you need to support the ever growing number of web connected devices? Multi-access edge computing (MEC), of course.

MEC transforms the topology and architecture of mobile networks from communication networks to actual application platforms for services. Furthermore, MEC uses an edge server in order to process tasks closer to the end user versus having to be forwarded to the cloud.

At 165 Halsey Street, we recognize the importance of the role that MEC plays in supporting IoT devices. According to Ian Hood (IH), chief architect, global service providers at Red Hat, the MEC revolution will expand the number of places where data center technologies are deployed. As such, data center operators focus on developing their infrastructure/environments as code, to enable them to operationalize hybrid cloud. These types of approaches help data center operators to offer “always-on” services and applications for on-demand usage by customers.

2018 Data Center Trends: Serverless Cloud

It’s time to talk about the serverless cloud; a highlight of one of the trends in our recently released e-book, “The Data Center in 2018: New Technologies and Trends.”

To create the ‘serverless cloud,’ servers are still needed, but the cloud computing execution model is what makes it stand out from traditional models. Serverless computing stands out because it can adapt dynamically and manage the allocation of machine resources based only on what is being used. Not to mention, that it provides a prime opportunity for efficiency and flexibility, yielding a 5-10x efficiency gain, according to CIO.

Furthermore, serverless cloud adoption is set to rise for several reasons including the growth of smart applications and the impact it has on business costs.

2018 Data Center Trends: Digitizing Financial Services

Recently we released a new e-book, “The Data Center in 2018: New Technologies and Trends,” and it is available for download now.

We’re continuing this blog series to highlight aspects of the e-book, and the second one starts with Digitizing Financial Services. In 2018, we are starting to see blockchain going mainstream.  With the CBOE and CME launching Bitcoin futures in December 2017, the currency continues to spark many conversations as Bitcoin continues its path as a potentially credible currency. Awareness and interest in blockchain’s other applications is increasing across the globe. With the blockchain surge comes faster digitization of the financial services industry.

Typically among the slowest to adopt new technologies and processes due to rising data security concerns and regulatory issues, the financial services industry is now faced with having to innovate through digital automation and enhanced customer experience because of blockchain technology, the rise of cryptocurrencies and new regulations. Banks, even with the help of artificial intelligence and other innovations, continue to cite siloed data and confusion on ownership of the emerging technologies as deterrents.

2018 Data Center Trends: DataOps

Last month, we released a new e-book, “The Data Center in 2018: New Technologies and Trends,” and it is available for download now.

We’re kicking off a six-part blog series highlighting aspects of the e-book, and the first one starts with DataOps, a big trend for 2018 that is gaining traction, especially within large enterprises. A play on the name DevOps, the practice refers to the integration of software development (“dev”) and operations (“ops”). But, while sharing some of the goals of DevOps, DataOps is distinct and indicative of some of the major shifts we are observing today.

Tamr, a data unification company’s blogger, Andy Palmer defines DataOps as: a data management method that emphasizes communication, collaboration, integration, automation and measurement of cooperation between data engineers, data scientists and other data professionals.

Benefits of an AWS Connection at 165 Halsey Street

By now, you’ve likely heard that 165 Halsey Street has established a dedicated network connection from its premises to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect. This is certainly an important capability for 165 Halsey Street’s current and future tenants, but it is a possibility that folks may have some questions about our latest announcement, so we’ve drafted the below as a sort of FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions).

What is AWS?

Amazon Web Services, AWS, 165 Halsey Street, Connectivity, Direct Connect

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a subsidiary of Amazon.com that provides on-demand cloud computing platforms to individuals, companies and other organizations via a paid subscription. A multitude of solutions are accessible via AWS, such as compute, storage, database, migration, network and content delivery and a whole lot more.

What is AWS Direct Connect?

AWS Direct Connect allows for easy access from your premises to AWS. Direct Connect establishes private connectivity between AWS and a given data center, office or colocation space and grants facilities and their tenants the ability to access all AWS solution offerings.

How does a connection to AWS benefit current and future 165 Halsey Street tenants?

There are actually quite a few benefits of a connection to AWS for current and future 165 Halsey Street tenants. At the highest level, a connection to AWS often means reduced network costs, increased bandwidth throughput and a more consistent network experience than non-cloud, internet-based connections. Here are some of the other major benefits of note:

Speed & Privacy: AWS Direct Connect enables customers to establish private data connections to AWS that bypass the Internet. Avoiding public networks improves performance, reduces costs, increases privacy and ensures consistent throughput.

Bandwidth Cost Reduction: AWS Direct Connect reduces network costs into and out of AWS in two ways. First, by transferring data to and from AWS directly, reducing your bandwidth commitment to the Internet service provider.  Second, while inbound data transfer to AWS is not charged, outbound data transfer from AWS is charged at the reduced AWS Direct Connect data transfer rate rather than Internet data transfer rates.

AWS Compatibility: AWS Direct Connect is a network service, and works with all AWS services that are accessible over the Internet, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).

Why is a connection to AWS important for those looking into data center / colocation services?

Any enterprise that is interested in maintaining the security and control of on-premises infrastructure and deploy hybrid clouds through direct interconnection should be very excited about AWS Direct Connect because it grants dedicated, high-performance, private access to the enterprise’s AWS applications and workloads at the global level.

Want to find out more?

Contact us via email or phone, at simone@tishman.com or 212-399-3633 today. Our team is happy to discuss the above benefits and answer any questions that you have specific to your business and how AWS Direct Connect can help you succeed.
