Recently, Andy Flick, Director Cloud Services at ViON was interviewed by Government Technology Insider about the value that a Marketplace can bring to public sector organizations.
In a technology world where cybersecurity threats are constant and growing in sophistication, modernizing outdated infrastructure on a shoestring budget looms large, and deploying new and complex applications like AI, Machine Learning and Advanced Analytics stretches the demands of the data center.
When it comes to updating old IT infrastructure, there is a pervasive school of thought that sounds something like, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Certainly, when you have a reliable performing technology like SPARC has been for over 30 years, that would seem to make sense at face value.
Diamonds are Forever and So is Your Data. Why ViON’s Forever Data Cloud Should be Part of Your Data Management Strategy.
The shelf life of data is increasing exponentially with the proliferation of AI, ML and advanced analytics. Data that you thought you would never ever touch again that is tucked away in a long term archive is suddenly becoming relevant.
The “Laws” of Multicloud Deployment: What You Need to Know About Determining the Right Cloud Solution
There are laws of science and nature that have been exhaustively researched and conclusively determined leaving little for doubt for most people. When it comes to determining a cloud strategy, the laws are not irrefutable, but there are some universal considerations that should be made when identifying what is right for your organization.
A technology leader once said that technology is truly elegant when it fades into the background and simply allows the user to achieve. This is true of any technology and is especially true in the scope of artificial intelligence. The ability to focus on outcomes and extract value from data should transcend the hardware and software behind it.
When I think of 2020, there were a lot of broken hearts. I certainly don’t need to rehash all the things we missed in 2020 because everyone has their own list they can recite quickly but 2021 can be different! February is Heart Health Month so now is the time to think about what 2021 can bring and how you can ensure your heart health so you can do all the things on your “pause list.”
Recently, Air Force Chief of Staff and General, C.Q. Brown said that moving data and making it accessible is the most important and challenging task in its effort to set up the Advanced Battle Management System, a key component of Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2). JADC2 is focused on centralizing and improving command and control coordination of the battlefield for better decision making and faster response times. In today’s data driven military, edge computing is essential for success in the cyber domain.
Today’s smart phones possess over 100,000 times the processing power of NASA’s Apollo 11 guidance computers that landed a man on the moon in 1969. Thanks to Moore’s Law which since 1975 has correctly predicted that the number of transistors on a microchip would double every 2 years, we expect that number to continue to grow. Processors are simultaneously becoming smaller, faster & stronger at a blistering pace.
Take for a minute and consider these mind boggling statistics of how fast data is growing: In 2019, the number of emails sent every minute was 188 million. At the beginning of 2020, the number of bytes in the digital universe was 40 times more than the number of stars in the observable universe. By 2025, the amount of data generated each day is expected to reach 463 exabytes globally.
