With companies reclaiming control via cloud repatriation, models that involve private cloud, either as is or in tandem with public cloud, meet the needs of organizations in a cost-effective, agile, and controlled manner, offering immense peace of mind. Private cloud is making a comeback, all thanks to the generative AI gold rush. AI data leak fears and cost uncertainties have CIOs rethinking future cloud strategies. Today, the seemingly passé private cloud, either hosted by a partner or an on-premises solution, is getting a second look — and then some. Since they boast a single-tenant cloud infrastructure, they are ideal settings…

As businesses continue diversifying and expanding, integrated systems will become increasingly vital in ensuring productivity, efficiency, and success. How many discrete software apps do you use across your entire business setup? 10, 20, or maybe even 50? The numbers might seem high, but when one considers the number of tools used by the different teams in the organization, they do add up. Since data plays a critical role in driving efficiency and decision-making, data across disparate systems could result in significant challenges for organizations. Basically, disparate systems are databases or software that aren’t integrated but are separate. Integrating this tech…

Password IOT

With the advent of innovative solutions, it’s important that we adapt to this evolving ecosystem to keep our digital assets safe. In the wake of escalating data breaches and cyber-attacks, the ever-ready advice of “don’t share your password” is no longer enough. Passwords were and will continue to remain the primary keys to our digital presence and our most critical digital assets. Thus, following the best practices for password security is more vital than ever, whether you’re securing individual user accounts, e-mail, or networks. Strong passwords are the first line of defence for protecting sensitive information from cyber threats. We’ll…

The debate about how data centre cooling systems should be designed has been raging for decades. When it comes to the world of data centres, it’s getting hot in here. No, really. Data centres consume copious amounts of power, which gets converted into heat. Since servers don’t really like heat, the need for strong and efficient data centre cooling arises. If we remember the first law of thermodynamics, the energy created cannot be destroyed; instead, it changes form. So, a data centre consuming 1 MW of electricity will transform it to an equivalent amount of heat – which is a…

Blockchain will add transparency to the AI system, enabling real-time decisions and ensuring timely planning for a better strategy. Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming how we consume and create data and information – but for both better and worse. AI is also now being used to create fake content, which begs the question of how we can trust what we hear, see, and consume on the Internet. Could we possibly leverage existing technologies to address this lack of trust? Interestingly, this is turning organisations into a technology that was once hailed as transformative but couldn’t catch on in business. Image…

The gaps or weaknesses in cloud computing environments allow hackers to exploit and disrupt services and steal data by gaining unauthorised access. It’s a given now that if there’s anyone who’s somebody in the internet infrastructure arena isn’t moving to the cloud, then they’re falling behind. Thus, cloud security has been featured on important trend lists for the last few years, showing no signs of abating. In fact, CrowdStrike’s 2023 Global Threat Report identified the “continued rise of cloud exploitation” as one of the major themes. Even Palo Alto Networks listed several cloud security blind spots to watch out for.…
