Demand for compute remains strong in 1Q21

Demand for data center compute continues to be strong and we believe 1Q21 would have been even stronger had it not been for the semiconductor supply shortage. We learned from vendors that the flow of server CPUs out of TSMC and Intel’s fabs was steady in 1Q21 but supply of other components necessary to build a server was tight, including power semis, BMC and PCB substrate.

5G Standalone: What's So Exciting About It?

Article | September 28, 2023

The much-anticipated 5G Standalone has arrived. T-Mobile is the first to launch it in the USA, covering 250 million people across 7,500 cities and towns, including rural areas. China Mobile is the only other service provider to launch it in Hong Kong. Overall, 58 operators are currently investing (November 2020) in 5G SA, including those who have launched. 5G SA makes a break from 5G non-standalone by integrating the evolved packet core or the signaling brain of the 5G network, which controls the network's devices. It prepares the groundwork for new services unique to this generation of networks, such as network slicing to customize enterprise services across multiple networks.

Reflecting on a year of partnership to advance data for racial justice

Article | June 15, 2023

One year ago, Tableau Foundation launched our Racial Justice Data Initiative out of a core belief that data can and should play a transformative role in the fight for racial equity and justice in the United States. We have forged new partnerships and deepened existing relationships with organizations committed to using data to raise awareness of inequities, point to solutions, and advocate for progress. Just today, we announced two new partnerships that will deepen our commitment to advancing racial equity in the Southern US with—Southern Economic Advancement Project (SEAP) and Fair Count. We believe that data can be a powerful resource in both identifying the experiences and challenges of people whose voices we may not normally hear and help create the necessary programs, policies, and resources needed to ensure these same people are not left behind

Network Monitoring Plays Important Role in Cloud Migrations

networkcomputing | March 11, 2019

New research from Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has found that the network team is a key player in the migration of applications from data centers to the public cloud. In particular, network monitoring tools are important to assessing the network requirements of cloud-bound applications. EMA recently published “Network Engineering and Operations in the Multi-Cloud Era,” a research report based on a survey of 250 enterprises and telephone interviews with a half-dozen IT leaders. The research found that 99 percent of network teams are responsible for discovering and assessing the networking requirements of applications before and after they migrate to the public cloud. Eighty-nine percent of network teams do such assessments for every application, and only 10 percent limit these assessments to critical applications.

Best practices for global enterprises moving to multi-cloud environments: How SD-WAN can help

cloudcomputing | March 07, 2019

Whether they set out to use multiple clouds or not, large enterprises today end up with several cloud suppliers. In fact, it’s probably hard to find a company that isn’t using some mix of Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, IBM Cloud, Salesforce.com, Oracle, Google G-Suite, ServiceNow or Box. The list goes on and on. This is more pronounced with enterprises that have a global site footprint.The cloud, after all, gets you out of the business of hosting applications and worrying about upgrading hardware and software constantly. It also enables you to sidestep the capital commitments otherwise required. However, the more clouds you use, the more complex connectivity becomes. Security concerns skyrocket as it becomes hard to figure out who is accessing what, from where and how. In addition, the network becomes central to application performance across the organization.
