Check out the latest in deals, new development and innovative strategies in hyperscale, colocation, 5G, cloud migration, cloud services, edge compute, Hybrid IT, power, cooling and energy efficiency for February 28, 2020:
  • CyrusOne Brings IBM Public Cloud Connectivity to London I Data Center: CyrusOne has announced the introduction of IBM Cloud Direct Link to its London I data center facility in the U.K., near Slough. This news follows existing deployments in the US and Germany, where customers are already benefiting from dedicated, secure, reliable and low latency network connections to the IBM public cloud, often as part of hybrid strategies integrating seamlessly with their own IT infrastructure. Large enterprises are continuing to adopt an increasingly hybrid cloud approach and are realising the benefit of the right blend of computing services both on-premises and in the cloud. Making progress towards this goal relies on the rapid and reliable deployment of applications across multiple cloud environments. With dedicated connectivity to the IBM public cloud, customers are able to tap into services including AI, big data analytics and blockchain.

  • EdgeConneX, Ori Industries team for Edge Computing in Europe: EdgeConneX, the pioneer in Edge Data Centers, and Ori Industries, the company behind edge cloud platform OGE (Ori Global Edge), are laying the foundations for the rise of a new generation of Internet of Things (IoT), 5G, gaming and other edge-dependent services in Europe. Ori will deploy its global edge platform at three EdgeConneX Edge Data Centers in Amsterdam, Munich and Warsaw. This partnership will help ease many of the common challenges that developers face when trying to access and orchestrate compute, storage and network resources that exist over distributed networks across different providers. Developers will be able to leverage Ori’s infrastructure-agnostic software platform, deployed in EdgeConneX data centers, to place workloads seamlessly along a spectrum that runs from the cloud to the network edge. By partnering with communication service providers (CSPs), enterprises, private and public clouds, and smart cities, Ori is bringing together multiple computing resources into a federated cloud that developers can use to deliver the applications of the future.

  • Qorvo Completes Acquisition of Decawave: Qorvo has completed its acquisition of Decawave, a pioneer in ultra-wideband technology and provider of UWB solutions for mobile, automotive and IoT applications. The Decawave team has become the Ultra-Wideband Business Unit within Qorvo Mobile Products. Dublin, Ireland-based Decawave was founded in 2007 and has deployed more than 8 million chipsets in more than 40 different market verticals – from smartphones to drones. Decawave’s Impulse Radio UWB technology allows for position accuracy of a few centimeters, and with extremely low latency.  Decawave CEO Ciaran Connell will lead Qorvo’s UWBU team as its general manager.
  • CSA Continues to Drive Leadership in Cloud Security with New Research: The Cloud Security Alliance has released three new publications that further CSA’s commitment to helping cloud security professionals successfully steer their enterprises on their journey to the cloud: Banking on the Cloud – Real-World Use in the Financial Services Sector, Best Practices in Implementing a Secure Microservices Architecture, and DevSecOps: Collective Responsibility. Additionally, CSA, in collaboration with McGraw-Hill, announced the release of “CCSK Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge All-in-One Exam,” by CSA-authorized trainer Graham Thompson, as a comprehensive guide to version 4 of the CCSK. The Cloud Usage in the Financial Services Sector report provides insight into the banking and finance sectors’ real-world use. Most strikingly, the survey, which was conducted by CSA’s Financial Services Stakeholder Platform (FSSP) Working Group, found that 91 percent of respondents are actively using cloud services or plan to use them in the next six to nine months — double the number since CSA’s last financial services sector survey four years ago.

  • Second Spectrum Selects AWS as its Preferred Cloud, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Media Services Provider: Second Spectrum, the Official Optical Tracking and Analytics Provider of sports leagues such as the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the English Premier League, has chosen AWS as its preferred cloud, machine learning (ML), and artificial intelligence (AI) provider. Second Spectrum has also selected AWS media services to help deliver new kinds of live game-watching experiences to fans. Second Spectrum uses AWS’s industry-leading services to help sports leagues and their media partners deliver analytics, visualizations, and easily searchable video clips during games and matches to enhance the fan experience and provide teams with deeper competitive insights. For example, Second Spectrum leverages AWS to produce and deliver Clippers CourtVision, an augmented reality, livestreaming product for the Los Angeles (L.A.) Clippers that displays player tracking information, real-time stats, and explanatory animations for fans watching from desktops and mobile devices.
