A dive into SD WAN

Written by Paul Bonner, Group Head of Technology.
Things have changed. There I said it. Gone are the days when it was just hardware that was needed to run applications and to connect users to them.  In today’s technology landscape we have seen an explosion in the term ‘Software Defined’ which has now prepended many things from datacentre, through networking and […] Read more…

Jake Greenland discusses the future of NFV in an IT Pro Portal feature

Jake Greenland has recently featured on IT Pro Portal discussing the potential future of NFV.
“As it stands at the moment, the value of NFV lies in its speed and agility. Service providers are able to deliver new services to market faster than ever before and differentiate themselves from the competition in the process.
However, we have already been made aware that […] Read more…

HardwareSolutions’ Jake Greenland discusses important SDN considerations in this month’s DCN

Jake Greenland features in this month’s DCN magazine, discussing the evolution and benefits of SDN:
“It goes without saying that centralisation and automation have the power to speed up processes and reduce latency in network provisioning. By automating, what can often be, very manual processes, SDN allows businesses to achieve more through less resource, relieving pressure on, often stretched, in-house teams.

The evolution of the data centre
The data centre world has both evolved and come full circle from its early roots. At one time a data centre would be a central location packed with a mainframe computer and its attached storage. With the move to PC based computing, the servers were decentralised and pushed out away from the data centre into […] Read more…
