    by James Markarian on December 13, 2017 at 4:21 pm

    The Beatles or the Rolling Stones? LeBron James or Steph Curry? Muhammad Ali or Floyd Mayweather? And while we’re at it: best-of-breed or single-vendor/integrated-stack?Classic debates. Myself, I prefer the Beatles, Steph, and Ali. As for best-of-breed versus single-vendor, I’ll confess that over my 30-year career I’ve been known to argue for both sides, but these days I’m increasingly in the corner of best-of-breed. I’ll go further and say: It’s not even a fair fight any more. With the rise of the cloud, best-of-breed is now more attractive—and easier to implement—than ever. Best-of-breed is increasingly distinct and compelling In the cloud, the delta in capabilities and performance between best-of-breed versus the single-stack option are considerable. The big public cloud providers have distinct strengths and characteristics that make it highly attractive to choose multiple public clouds based on desired use cases.To read this article in full, please click her […]

  • IDG Contributor Network: Two common threads tying together 2018 tech trends
    by Oliver Schabenberger on December 13, 2017 at 3:57 pm

    Many of the technology trends that drove us into 2017 will continue into 2018: connected devices, digital transformation, the internet of things (IoT), machine learning, artificial intelligence, and automation.These hot-button issues will remain part of the technology vocabulary in 2018 and beyond. Where I see a substantive difference is in the union of the technologies. AI and IoT are transformative by themselves; now imagine digital transformation in a connected and automated world empowered by an artificial intelligence of things.Going into 2018, I see two common technology characteristics: intelligence and automation.Intelligence If we want smart factories, cities, cars, and homes, the systems that drive them also need to be smart. That requires active, real-time learning systems that can generalize and optimize from a common set of rules.To read this article in full, please click her […]

    by Brand Post on December 13, 2017 at 11:00 am

    By Jesse St. Laurent, HPE Chief Technologist, Hyperconverged & SimpliVity Ransomware is a dominant threat to businesses everywhere that is not going away anytime soon. It’s a reality IT teams acknowledge, but are not always prepared for. Of course, no one thinks that their datacenter will be the next one to fall victim to a ransomware attack, but the statistics are alarming.According to an FBI report, one ransomware variant in early 2016 compromised as many as 100,000 computers a day. And those statistics are not subsiding. Hackers are constantly inventing new ways to gain access to sensitive information and critical files, evidenced by the fact that ransomware has advanced from the 22nd most common type of malware in Verizon’s 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report to the fifth most common in this year’s report.To read this article in full, please click her […]
