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.

Network Security in 2018: Establishing Leadership

Thank you for reading our blog series on Network Security! This is the final of the series, and today we focus on a network security opportunity, which is establishing security leadership.

Enhancing cybersecurity is a critical move for every organization. Moreover, increasing employees’ security “IQ” is another step toward securing key corporate assets. Each organization should work together to assemble a key cybersecurity team that consists of executives who will have a cybersecurity response plan ready to go in seconds.

Being proactive versus reactive is highly important when it comes to security matters. According to the “2015 Cost of Data Breach Study,” U.S. companies were the biggest victims of data breaches worldwide.

While many organizations spend capital and extend resources upfront on security measures, they must be sure that they are investing in a response team, who will oversee response procedures in the event of a breach. This response team should consist of IT personnel, legal, human resources, management, the C-Suite and an outside cybersecurity partner (if available). This team of combined executives is essential to responding to all types of cyberattacks.

Read on this and much more in our Network Security: Challenges and Opportunities eBook here.

Network Security in 2018 – Control Via the Cloud

Happy New Year! As we enter 2018, there has never been a time more critical to focus on the latest challenges and opportunities for network security. In late 2017, we featured a blog series on network security, and continue with another post today on “Control via the Cloud.”

With the cost of a single ransomware occurrence at $713,000 on average, companies today cannot afford to NOT have cybersecurity protection. And with the technological advances made by the cloud, these businesses should also be taking advantage of the cloud.

Why? Explore these benefits of using the cloud for security:

  • Software is managed and upgraded offsite (automatic updates)
  • Lower hardware costs due to the only requirements being an internet connection and browser. Buying and constantly upgrading servers and other hardware is unnecessary.
  • Need for a large IT staff is reduced
  • Many cloud service providers claim to provide higher levels of security and uptime than typical networks

Read more about the benefit of the cloud for your network security, and download the full eBook here.

Make 2018 the year your business is more than ready than ever to tackle network security challenges.
