Killexams : Answering the top 10 questions about supercloud

As we exited the isolation economy last year, we introduced supercloud as a term to describe something new that was happening in the world of cloud computing.

In this Breaking Analysis, we address the ten most frequently asked questions we get on supercloud. Today we’ll address the following frequently asked questions:

1. In an industry full of hype and buzzwords, why does anyone need a new term?

2. Aren’t hyperscalers building out superclouds? We’ll try to answer why the term supercloud connotes something different from a hyperscale cloud.

3. We’ll talk about the problems superclouds solve.

4. We’ll further define the critical aspects of a supercloud architecture.

5. We often get asked: Isn’t this just multicloud? Well, we don’t think so and we’ll explain why.

6. In an earlier episode we introduced the notion of superPaaS  – well, isn’t a plain vanilla PaaS already a superPaaS? Again – we don’t think so and we’ll explain why.

7. Who will actually build (and who are the players currently building) superclouds?

8. What workloads and services will run on superclouds?

9. What are some examples of supercloud?

10. Finally, we’ll answer what you can expect next on supercloud from SiliconANGLE and theCUBE.

Why do we need another buzzword?

Late last year, ahead of Amazon Web Services Inc.’s re:Invent conference, we were inspired by a post from Jerry Chen called Castles in the Cloud. In that blog he introduced the idea that there were submarkets emerging in cloud that presented opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs, that the big cloud vendors weren’t going to suck all the value out of the industry. And so we introduced this notion of supercloud to describe what we saw as a value layer emerging above the hyperscalers’ “capex gift.”

It turns out that we weren’t the only ones using the term, as both Cornell and MIT have used the phrase in somewhat similar but different contexts.

The point is something new was happening in the AWS and other ecosystems. It was more than infrastructure as a service and platform as a service and wasn’t just software as a service running in the cloud.

It was a new architecture that integrates infrastructure, unique platform attributes and software to solve new problems that the cloud vendors in our view weren’t addressing by themselves. It seemed to us that the ecosystem was pursuing opportunities across clouds that went beyond conventional implementations of multi-cloud.

In addition, we felt this trend pointed to structural change going on at the industry level that supercloud metaphorically was highlighting.

So that’s the background on why we felt a new catchphrase was warranted. Love it or hate it… it’s memorable.

Industry structures have always mattered in tech

To that last point about structural industry transformation: Andy Rappaport is sometimes credited with identifying the shift from the vertically integrated mainframe era to the horizontally fragmented personal computer- and microprocessor-based era in his Harvard Business Review article from 1991.

In fact, it was actually David Moschella, an International Data Corp. senior vice president at the time, who introduced the concept in 1987, a full four years before Rappaport’s article was published. Moschella, along with IDC’s head of research Will Zachmann, saw that it was clear Intel Corp., Microsoft Corp., Seagate Technology and other would replace the system vendors’ dominance.

In fact, Zachmann accurately predicted in the late 1980s the demise of IBM, well ahead of its epic downfall when the company lost approximately 75% of its value. At an IDC Briefing Session (now called Directions), Moschella put forth a graphic that looked similar to the first two concepts on the chart below.

We don’t have to review the shift from IBM as the epicenter of the industry to Wintel – that’s well-understood.

What isn’t as widely discussed is a structural concept Moschella put out in 2018 in his book “Seeing Digital,” which introduced the idea of the Matrix shown on the righthand side of this chart. Moschella posited that a new digital platform of services was emerging built on top of the internet, hyperscale clouds and other intelligent technologies that would define the next era of computing.

He used the term matrix because the conceptual depiction included horizontal technology rows, like the cloud… but for the first time included connected industry columns. Moschella pointed out that historically, industry verticals had a closed value chain or stack of research and development, production, distribution, etc., and that expertise in that specific vertical was critical to success. But now, because of digital and data, for the first time, companies were able to jump industries and compete using data. Amazon in content, payments and groceries… Apple in payments and content… and so forth. Data was now the unifying enabler and this marked a changing structure of the technology landscape.

Listen to David Moschella explain the Matrix and its implications on a new generation of leadership in tech.

So the term supercloud is meant to imply more than running in hyperscale clouds. Rather, it’s a new type of digital platform comprising a combination of multiple technologies – enabled by cloud scale – with new industry participants from financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, energy, media and virtually all industries. Think of it as kind of an extension of “every company is a software company.”

Basically, thanks to the cloud, every company in every industry now has the opportunity to build their own supercloud. We’ll come back to that.

Aren’t hyperscale clouds superclouds?

Let’s address what’s different about superclouds relative to hyperscale clouds.

This one’s pretty straightforward and obvious. Hyperscale clouds are walled gardens where they want your data in their cloud and they want to keep you there. Sure, every cloud player realizes that not all data will go to their cloud, so they’re meeting customers where their data lives with initiatives such Amazon Outposts and Azure Arc and Google Anthos. But at the end of the day, the more homogeneous they can make their environments, the better control, security, costs and performance they can deliver. The more complex the environment, the more difficult to deliver on their promises and the less margin left for them to capture.

Will the hyperscalers get more serious about cross cloud services? Maybe, but they have plenty of work to do within their own clouds. And today at least they appear to be providing the tools that will enable others to build superclouds on top of their platforms. That said, we never say never when it comes to companies such as AWS. And for sure we see AWS delivering more integrated digital services such as Amazon Connect to solve problems in a specific domain, call centers in this case.

What problems do superclouds solve?

We’ve all seen the stats from IDC or Gartner or whomever that customers on average use more than one cloud. And we know these clouds operate in disconnected silos for the most part. That’s a problem because each cloud requires different skills. The development environment is different, as is the operating environment, with different APIs and primitives and management tools that are optimized for each respective hyperscale cloud. Their functions and value props don’t extend to their competitors’ clouds. Why would they?

As a result, there’s friction when moving between different clouds. It’s hard to share data, move work, secure and govern data, and enforce organizational policies and edicts across clouds.

Supercloud is an architecture designed to create a single environment that enables management of workloads and data across clouds in an effort to take out complexity, accelerate application development, streamline operations and share data safely irrespective of location.

Pretty straightforward, but nontrivial, which is why we often ask company chief executives and execs if stock buybacks and dividends will yield as much return as building out superclouds that solve really specific problems and create differentiable value for their firms.

What are the critical attributes of a supercloud?

Let’s dig in a bit more to the architectural aspects of supercloud. In other words… what are the salient attributes that define supercloud?

First, a supercloud runs a set of specific services, designed to solve a unique problem. Superclouds offer seamless, consumption-based services across multiple distributed clouds.

Supercloud leverages the underlying cloud-native tooling of a hyperscale cloud but it’s optimized for a specific objective that aligns with the problem it’s solving. For example, it may be optimized for cost or low latency or sharing data or governance or security or higher performance networking. But the point is, the collection of services delivered is focused on unique value that isn’t being delivered by the hyperscalers across clouds.

A supercloud abstracts the underlying and siloed primitives of the native PaaS layer from the hyperscale cloud and using its own specific platform-as-a-service tooling, creates a common experience across clouds for developers and users. In other words, the superPaaS ensures that the developer and user experience is identical, irrespective of which cloud or location is running the workload.

And it does so in an efficient manner, meaning it has the metadata knowledge and management that can optimize for latency, bandwidth, recovery, data sovereignty or whatever unique value the supercloud is delivering for the specific use cases in the domain.

A supercloud comprises a superPaaS capability that allows ecosystem partners to add incremental value on top of the supercloud platform to fill gaps, accelerate features and innovate. A superPaaS can use open tooling but applies those development tools to create a unique and specific experience supporting the design objectives of the supercloud.

Supercloud services can be infrastructure-related, application services, data services, security services, users services, etc., designed and packaged to bring unique value to customers… again that the hyperscalers are not delivering across clouds or on-premises.

Finally, these attributes are highly automated where possible. Superclouds take a page from hyperscalers in terms of minimizing human intervention wherever possible, applying automation to the specific problem they’re solving.

Isn’t supercloud just another term for multicloud?

What we’d say to that is: Perhaps, but not really. Call it multicloud 2.0 if you want to invoke a commonly used format. But as Dell’s Chuck Whitten proclaimed, multicloud by design is different than multicloud by default.

What he means is that, to date, multicloud has largely been a symptom of multivendor… or of M&A. And when you look at most so-called multicloud implementations, you see things like an on-prem stack wrapped in a container and hosted on a specific cloud.

Or increasingly a technology vendor has done the work of building a cloud-native version of its stack and running it on a specific cloud… but historically it has been a unique experience within each cloud with no connection between the cloud silos. And certainly not a common developer experience with metadata management across clouds.

Supercloud sets out to build incremental value across clouds and above hyperscale capex that goes beyond cloud compatibility within each cloud. So if you want to call it multicloud 2.0, that’s fine.

We choose to call it supercloud.

Isn’t plain old PaaS already supercloud?

Well, we’d say no. That supercloud and its corresponding superPaaS layer gives the freedom to store, process, manage, secure and connect islands of data across a continuum with a common developer experience across clouds.

Importantly, the sets of services are designed to support the supercloud’s objectives – e.g., data sharing or data protection or storage and retrieval or cost optimization or ultra-low latency, etc. In other words, the services offered are specific to that supercloud and will vary by each offering. OpenShift, for example, can be used to construct a superPaaS but in and of itself isn’t a superPaaS. It’s generic.

The point is that a supercloud and its inherent superPaaS will be optimized to solve specific problems such as low latency for distributed databases or fast backup and recovery and ransomware protection — highly specific use cases that the supercloud is designed to solve for.

SaaS as well is a subset of supercloud. Most SaaS platforms either run in their own cloud or have bits and pieces running in public clouds (e.g. analytics). But the cross-cloud services are few and far between or often nonexistent. We believe SaaS vendors must evolve and adopt supercloud to offer distributed solutions across cloud platforms and stretching out to the near and far edge.

Who is building superclouds?

Another question we often get is: Who has a supercloud and who is building a supercloud? Who are the contenders?

Well, most companies that consider themselves cloud players will, we believe, be building superclouds. Above is a common Enterprise Technology Research graphic we like to show with Net Score or spending momentum on the Y axis and Overlap or pervasiveness in the ETR surveys on the X axis. This is from the April survey of well over 1,000 chief executive officers and information technology buyers. And we’ve randomly chosen a number of players we think are in the supercloud mix and we’ve included the hyperscalers because they are the enablers.

We’ve added some of those nontraditional industry players we see building superclouds such as Capital One, Goldman Sachs and Walmart, in deference to Moschella’s observation about verticals. This goes back to every company being a software company. And rather than pattern-matching an outdated SaaS model we see a new industry structure emerging where software and data and tools specific to an industry will lead the next wave of innovation via the buildout of intelligent digital platforms.

We’ve talked a lot about Snowflake Inc.’s Data Cloud as an example of supercloud, as well as the momentum of Databricks Inc. (not shown above). VMware Inc. is clearly going after cross-cloud services. Basically every large company we see is either pursuing supercloud initiatives or thinking about it. Dell Technologies Inc., for example, showed Project Alpine at Dell Technologies World – that’s a supercloud in development. Snowflake introducing a new app dev capability based on its SuperPaaS (our term, of course, it doesn’t use the phrase), MongoDB Inc., Couchbase Inc., Nutanix Inc., Veeam Software, CrowdStrike Holdings Inc., Okta Inc. and Zscaler Inc. Even the likes of Cisco Systems Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co., in our view, will be building superclouds.

Although ironically, as an aside, Fidelma Russo, HPE’s chief technology officer, said on theCUBE she wasn’t a fan of cloaking mechanisms. But when we spoke to HPE’s head of storage services, Omer Asad, we felt his team is clearly headed in a direction that we would consider supercloud. It could be semantics or it could be that parts of HPE are in a better position to execute on supercloud. Storage is an obvious starting point. The same can be said of Dell.

Listen to Fidelma Russo explain her aversion to building a manager of managers.

And we’re seeing emerging companies like Aviatrix Systems Inc. (network performance), Starburst Data Inc. (self-service analytics for distributed data), Clumio Inc. (data protection – not supercloud today but working on it) and others building versions of superclouds that solve a specific problem for their customers. And we’ve spoken to independent software vendors such as Adobe Systems Inc., Automatic Data Processing LLC and UiPath Inc., which are all looking at new ways to go beyond the SaaS model and add value within cloud ecosystems, in particular building data services that are unique to their value proposition and will run across clouds.

So yeah – pretty much every tech vendor with any size or momentum and new industry players are coming out of hiding and competing… building superclouds. Many that look a lot like Moschella’s matrix with machine intelligence and artificial intelligence and blockchains and virtual reality and gaming… all enabled by the internet and hyperscale clouds.

It’s moving fast and it’s the future, in our opinion, so don’t get too caught up in the past or you’ll be left behind.

What are some examples of superclouds?

We’ve given many in the past, but let’s try to be a bit more specific. Below we cite a few and we’ll answer two questions in one section here: What workloads and services will run in superclouds and what are some examples?

Analytics. Snowflake is the furthest along with its data cloud in our view. It’s a supercloud optimized for data sharing, governance, query performance, security, ecosystem enablement and ultimately monetization. Snowflake is now bringing in new data types and open-source tooling and it ticks the attribute boxes on supercloud we laid out earlier.

Converged databases. Running transaction and analytics workloads. Take a look at what Couchbase is doing with Capella and how it’s enabling stretching the cloud to the edge with Arm-based platforms and optimizing for low latency across clouds and out to the edge.

Document database workloads. Look at MongoDB – a developer-friendly platform that with Atlas is moving to a supercloud model running document databases very efficiently. Accommodating analytic workloads and creating a common developer experience across clouds.

Data science workloads. For example, Databricks is bringing a common experience for data scientists and data engineers driving machine intelligence into applications and fixing the broken data lake with the emergence of the lakehouse.

General-purpose workloads. For example, VMware’s domain. Very clearly there’s a need to create a common operating environment across clouds and on-prem and out to the edge and VMware is hard at work on that — managing and moving workloads, balancing workloads and being able to recover very quickly across clouds.

Network routing. This is the primary focus of Aviatrix, building what we consider a supercloud and optimizing network performance and automating security across clouds.

Industry-specific workloads. For example, Capital One announcing its cost optimization platform for Snowflake – piggybacking on Snowflake’s supercloud. We believe it’s going to test that concept outside its own organization and expand across other clouds as Snowflake grows its business beyond AWS. Walmart Inc. is working with Microsoft to create an on-prem to Azure experience – yes, that counts. We’ve written about what Goldman is doing and you can bet dollars to donuts that Oracle Corp. will be building a supercloud in healthcare with its Cerner acquisition.

Supercloud is everywhere you look. Sorry, naysayers. It’s happening.

What’s next from theCUBE?

With all the industry buzz and debate about the future, John Furrier and the team at SiliconANGLE have decided to host an event on supercloud. We’re motivated and inspired to further the conversation. TheCUBE on Supercloud is coming.

On Aug. 9 out of our Palo Alto studios we’ll be running a live program on the topic. We’ve reached out to a number of industry participants — VMware, Snowflake, Confluent, Sky High Security, Hashicorp, Cloudflare and Red Hat — to get the perspective of technologists building superclouds.

And we’ve invited a number of vertical industry participants in financial services, healthcare and retail that we’re excited to have on along with analysts, thought leaders and investors.

We’ll have more details in the coming weeks, but for now if you’re interested please reach out to us with how you think you can advance the discussion and we’ll see if we can fit you in.

So mark your calendars and stay tuned for more information.

Killexams : Tips for Senior Care Organizations on Upgrading Their Network Infrastructure

Emerging technologies such as companion robots, artificial intelligence, and zero UI devices, coupled with the growing popularity of virtual reality, wearables and mobile devices can make a huge difference in resident experiences, patient care and clinician workflows within senior living and post-acute environments.

However, despite increased adoption of smart technologies among older adults, many senior care organizations have a limited technology infrastructure, especially from a connectivity perspective.

“When connectivity has been deployed, it may be narrow in scope and may provide specific operational functions, like controlling physical access in and out of the building or security camera monitoring in shared spaces. There may be limited guest or resident Wi-Fi services in public spaces, but they are usually islands of service and not available facilitywide,” says Allison Norfleet, global healthcare lead for industry solutions at Cisco.

According to a recent HealthTech Twitter poll, approximately 30 percent of senior care IT leaders reported that their organization hasn’t upgraded its network infrastructure in more than five years.

Norfleet explains that in an independent senior living organization, residents can often make their own technology decisions. They may pay the organization a fee to provide security, maintenance or basic networking in their room, giving the resident personalized Wi-Fi and possibly offering other services. Assisted living organizations can be like independent living, but they also include additional services and capabilities such as nurse call solutions in patient rooms, personal and staff duress alarms, and communication among the staff and care team.

“Many times, older assisted living or long-term-care organizations will have an infrastructure that involves cabling and radio technology. This makes deployment of newer networking solutions expensive to implement and maintain, while new construction can leverage lower cost Ethernet and Wi-Fi networks to deliver services to its residents and staff,” says Norfleet.

However, Wi-Fi can be beneficial for patients, residents and clinicians in senior care. Connectivity proved essential during the COVID-19 pandemic, when most senior care organizations went on lockdown. Older adults were able to talk with their families through video calls when visitors were restricted. Without such connection, older adults in senior living communities are more prone to feelings of depression or isolation. In addition, with more older adults adopting smart technology and using streaming services, offering a robust internet connection provides a competitive market advantage to senior living organizations, according to Majd Alwan, senior vice president of technology and business strategy, and executive director of the LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST).

Wi-Fi capabilities also are important to support clinician workflows and patient care. Many wearables and medical devices connect to the internet to send biometric and other data to clinicians and caregivers. Virtual care solutions such as telesitting and telehealth support clinicians amid nationwide healthcare staff shortages which, in turn, improves the patient experience.

To support these technology initiatives, senior care organizations need a robust networking infrastructure that can handle the influx of technologies and devices relying on Wi-Fi.

Click the banner below to learn how senior care technology supports caregivers and older adults.

When Should a Senior Care Organization Upgrade Its Network?

With the rapid adoption of telehealth and other technologies during the pandemic, senior care organizations may have upgraded service from their internet provider, but their network infrastructure may be limiting their bandwidth, says Alwan.

“Even if they were to upgrade, if they only have a copper network for a large campus, they probably need to install a fiber-optic backbone to the individual buildings, if not to the individual units,” he says. “If you observe the users of the internet, their demand on bandwidth increases by 50 percent year over year, which means that this is an exponential growth in demand for bandwidth. Many of our members were not prepared for this trend, let alone the sudden increase in demand on bandwidth during the pandemic.”

According to Norfleet, a senior care organization’s management team should consider the needs of the senior care market, the overall strategy for the organization and what services it wants to provide to its residents. 

“With the staffing shortages in play, how will the organization support the clinical teams on staff for residents who need various levels of care?” asks Norfleet. “Will they use clinical communication tools, remote monitoring of vitals, virtual care, asset location? In the end, a mission-critical component of each organization’s success will depend upon having a strong foundation or IT infrastructure that aligns to the organization’s short- and long-term business and connectivity needs.”

She explains that a senior care organization’s entire technology stack will need to be evaluated to determine its current state. IT will need to work with the organization’s leadership team to align their business goals with a well-developed technology strategy, which should include people, processes and technology.

Considerations for Senior Care Organizations on Upgrading Networks

The pandemic accelerated technology adoption in the senior living and post-acute spaces. While the landscape was already evolving before the pandemic, it was changing at a much slower pace. Norfleet says this means many organizations have legacy equipment in use that needs to be brought onto the network, including VHF radios, radio-frequency identification alarms, closed-circuit TV security cameras and more.

“This convergence can happen with a migration to an edge environment. The main goal of any senior care organization is to meet the needs of its residents and to ensure that the patient care delivered is just as safe and reliable as if they were in an acute or post-acute care setting,” says Norfleet. “In a digital age, that requires advanced network infrastructure to keep patient data secure and easily accessible for care providers and their families.”

A senior care organization undergoing a network infrastructure upgrade will need to manage the disruption within its organization and build a connected digital strategy that ensures speed, resiliency, stakeholder engagement and profitability for the future.

Norfleet says the most common pain point is the historical adoption of a single-purpose network for specific solutions and the legacy infrastructure deficit that created.

“For example, look at RFID-based staff duress solutions. The market solutions today are end-of-support, and their replacements are expensive,” she says. “Care facilities need to ask very specific questions that highlight the value of IT and operational technology convergence.”

Click the banner below to explore the latest on senior care technology and trends.

It’s also important that senior care leadership and IT teams work with staff and residents to ensure the technology implementation is successful. Organizations should consider supporting stakeholders through help desks and concierge services. LeadingAge CAST provides a Resident/Client Technology Support and Training resources, including a white paper, interactive guide and case studies, to help senior care providers approach technical support and training for residents.

Doug McDonald, technology director in the office of the CTO at Extreme Networks, says organizations should have a sufficiently robust switching and routing infrastructure, with Wi-Fi on the edge, to provide needed services. He emphasizes the need for ubiquitous Wi-Fi, available throughout an organization’s campus, to connect residents and patients with desired services.

“If you don’t have the Wi-Fi technology, hardware and infrastructure to facilitate the needed bandwidth, then the applications overlaying it might not perform well and your organization may have bandwidth limitations that inhibit video quality,” he says.

In addition to meeting the high-availability requirements that staff and patient health and safety demand, says Norfleet, new networking solutions should centralize management, adopt zero-touch deployment models, provide service orchestration and automate security updates. 

Which Network Technology Should Senior Care Organizations Choose?

Implementation of a facilitywide enterprise network creates connectivity and becomes the foundation to build upon for the resident, caregiver and guest experience, explains Norfleet. Every network implementation needs to incorporate security policies and procedures for a secure experience. She says that, in addition to network infrastructure upgrades, senior care organizations may also need to:

  • Replace expensive legacy VHF radios with less expensive, hardened smart devices
  • Replace legacy RFID staff duress and nurse call alarms with active Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy solutions integrated into a cloud-based location services platform
  • Replace aging closed-circuit TV security camera networks with cloud-managed, high-definition smart cameras
  • Leverage a cloud-based location services platform, such as Cisco DNA Spaces, during the replacement of failing or aging passive unit-based patient elopement controls with active solutions that integrate room occupancy information into unit or facility-based dashboards, to reduce staff stress and activities related to wandering

The advent of Wi-Fi 6E offers the potential for high bandwidth because it’s on a new spectrum that hasn’t been used before, says McDonald, noting that it could be very advantageous for providing care in senior living and post-acute organizations as more use cases arise. 

OpenRoaming technology is another network upgrade option that promises to Excellerate the senior care resident, care team and visitor experience.

“OpenRoaming enables residents, staff and visitors at senior care organizations to connect seamlessly and securely to the Wi-Fi network without needing to enter login credentials, making the network more accessible,” says Norfleet. “It ensures a connected experience from the parking lot, with a seamless transition onto the secure wireless network of the organization using public identity providers. No captive portal is required.”

Alwan recommends senior care organizations upgrade to a fiber backbone if possible to ensure adequate bandwidth not only for today, but for the next five or 10 years as bandwidth demand continues to rise. He also suggests having separate networks for residents, operations and possibly even visitors and partners, to protect the organization from cyberthreats.

The Importance of Partnerships in Senior Care Networking

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act allots $65 billion in federal funding for broadband infrastructure. Of that funding, $42.5 billion is being allocated to a broadband infrastructure deployment program administered by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, which will administer the funding through state grants. Alwan recommends that senior care organizations, especially larger organizations with locations in multiple counties, partner with their state to receive some of the grant funding.

IT partnerships are equally important. McDonald says administrators at senior living organizations should consider cloud-based technologies that are scalable and easy to manage across multiple locations. This involves shifting from a capital to an operational spending model.

“You don’t just buy infrastructure every six years and then refresh it because there’s another Wi-Fi solution or business demand. You’d need a big chunk of money to upgrade your system every six or seven years,” he says. “Now, with cloud-based capabilities, you pay for what you consume. You can also pay a subscription and get the most modern technology, which is a great model for senior living organizations.”

He compares the subscription model to getting an updated cable box from a cable provider, which can help senior care IT teams future proof their organization.

Hiring an in-house team with the expertise needed to design, implement and support an upgraded networking infrastructure would be expensive, and experts can be difficult to retain long-term.

A technology investment will be more successful if it is designed and installed correctly out of the gate, so that when a senior care organization invests, it gets the performance it deserves.”

Doug McDonald Technology Director in the Office of the CTO, Extreme Networks

While many solutions and services claim 100 percent resiliency, McDonald points out that there may still be times when network issues arise due to internet pipes, servers or external power grid issues.

“No matter what you do, there will be outages sometimes. But having a vendor focused on uptime and resiliency is key,” he says, adding that understanding an organization’s infrastructure and having the availability to help with IT issues are other important factors to consider when choosing a technology partner.

McDonald says it’s also important for senior care organizations to choose a vendor that can help them pick the right technologies for their organization and support them through the implementation and management of the solutions. He suggests senior care leadership look for technology partners who offer simplicity.

“A lot of organizations don’t have the resources or money to design and install an appropriate network infrastructure,” he says. “A technology investment will be more successful if it is designed and installed correctly out of the gate, so that when a senior care organization invests, it gets the performance it deserves.”

“Internet used to be a luxury,” adds Alwan. “However, in this day and age, especially after the pandemic, I believe it has become a right, and I would encourage everyone to jump on board and make it available to their residents.”

Killexams : NaaS: Is it right for you, and how do you pick a vendor?

Enterprises have become comfortable switching from the purchase-and-refresh cycle for servers, storage and applications to a cloud-based as-a-service approach. So, why not take the same tack when it comes to the network?

That’s the concept behind Network-as-a-Service (NaaS), which promises predictable costs, increased agility, better performance, cloud-style scalability, timely integration of new technologies, service-provider-level security, and a high degree of automation.

NaaS is becoming an attractive option for companies facing challenges such as recurring capital costs, staffing and skills shortages, and the increased complexity associated with securing remote access for employees and managing multi-cloud environments.

At a more strategic level, NaaS is being pitched as a way to help IT teams align the network to meet business needs, enable innovation, support digital transformation efforts, and keep up with technology advances in areas like 5G, AI, and automation.

Mark Leary, research director, network analytics at IDC, sums up the problem facing network execs this way: “With the level of networking complexity being so high, the speed at which businesses need to respond to market changes, and the extensive reach of modern networks, there are a lot of people realizing, ‘We just can’t do this anymore, and we need help.’”

Vendor NaaS offerings run the gamut

With so many vendors jumping on the NaaS bandwagon, it is becoming clear that NaaS means different things to different sets of vendors.
