Killexams : Kyndryl Expands Mainframe Modernization To Azure Stack, Google

Cloud News

Joseph F. Kovar

‘Kyndryl continues to launch capabilities to help customers launch the right workloads on the right platforms, including their mainframe workloads. Customers have critical workloads on multiple platforms and want to connect everything to the cloud,’ says Petra Goude, Kyndryl’s global practice leader for Core Enterprise and zCloud.

 ARTICLE TITLE HERE

Global infrastructure services provider Kyndryl this week expanded its ability to help customers run or migrate their mainframe workloads to public clouds with two new integrations.

In the first, Kyndryl used its Microsoft Ignite presence Thursday to unveil a new cloud offering combining the company’s managed services expertise with Microsoft Azure Stack HCI software and Dell Technologies hardware to help businesses with on-premises, remote or third-party data center workloads accelerate their cloud transformation projects.

The Microsoft Azure Stack HCI offering also supports mainframe modernization by connecting to on-premises mainframe or distributed computing infrastructures.

[Related: Kyndryl CEO Martin Schroeter: We Are Exiting The Influence Of IBM]

In the second, Kyndryl is working with Google Dual Run, a new service introduced Wednesday by Google as a way to migrate workloads off mainframes and onto the Google Cloud by letting the workloads work on both the cloud and on the mainframe until customers feel the time is right to take them off the mainframe altogether.

The two new mainframe-cloud integrations follow last week’s news that Kyndryl is partnering with Microsoft to allow mainframe applications to be run on Azure without the need to migrate them off the mainframe.

Together, Kyndryl, which was formerly the managed infrastructure services business of IBM before being spun out into a separate company, is taking advantage of its long history of working with mainframes to help customers modernize their mission-critical workloads, said Petra Goude, global practice leader for Core Enterprise and zCloud at New York-based Kyndryl.

“Kyndryl continues to launch capabilities to help customers launch the right workloads on the right platforms, including their mainframe workloads,” Goude told CRN. “Customers have critical workloads on multiple platforms and want to connect everything to the cloud.”

While Kyndryl last week introduced a data pipe to allow mainframe-based workloads to be run on the Microsoft Azure cloud, the new technology introduced Thursday uses Microsoft Azure Stack HCI together with Dell hardware to let the on-premises Azure Stack run both mainframe and distributed computing workloads, Goude said.

“We are using our integration to connect Azure Stack HCI to other platforms,” she said. “We create the integration layer to manage cloud, HCI and on-premises solutions. We are connecting it all together.”

The Kyndryl offering also uses the Dell Integrated System for Azure Stack HCI, based on Dell PowerEdge servers and Microsoft Azure Stack HCI software.

Kyndryl is now also providing services around Google Dual Run to customers looking to move mainframe workloads to the Google’s cloud, Goude said.

“For customers who want to move their workloads from mainframes to the Google Cloud Platform, we let them run in the cloud and on-premises,” she said. “We’re strong with mainframes and want to help customers put the right workload on the right platform. Google Dual Run is for customers who eventually want to take the workloads of the mainframes. The workloads can run on the mainframe and in Google for a while, and when it’s certain they run well in Google, they can be moved off the mainframe.”

For mainframe workloads that need to migrate to Amazon Web Services, Kyndryl works with Blu Age, which AWS acquired in 2021, Goude said.

Killexams : Former Uber security chief convicted of covering up 2016 data breach © Jeff Chiu/AP

SAN FRANCISCO — A former chief security officer for Uber was convicted Wednesday of federal charges stemming from payments he quietly authorized to hackers who breached the ride-hailing company in 2016.

Joe Sullivan was found guilty of obstructing justice for keeping the breach from the Federal Trade Commission, which had been probing Uber’s privacy protections at the time, and of actively hiding a felony.

The verdict ended a dramatic case that pitted Sullivan, a prominent security expert who was an early prosecutor of cybercrimes for the San Francisco U.S. attorney’s office, against his former government office. In between prosecuting hackers and being prosecuted, Sullivan served as the top security executive at Facebook, Uber and Cloudflare.

Judge William H. Orrick did not set a date for sentencing. Sullivan may appeal if post-trial motions fail to set the verdict aside.

“Mr. Sullivan’s sole focus — in this incident and throughout his distinguished career — has been ensuring the safety of people’s personal data on the internet,” Sullivan attorney David Angeli said after the 12-member jury rendered its unanimous verdict on the fourth day of deliberations.

Even without Sullivan’s job history, the trial would have been closely watched as the first major criminal case brought against a corporate executive over a breach by outsiders.

It also may be one of the last: In the five years since Sullivan was fired, payoffs to extortionists, including those who steal sensitive data, have become so routine that some security firms and insurance companies specialize in handling the transactions.

“Paying out the ransom I think is more common than we’re led to believe. There is an attitude that’s similar to a fender bender,” said Michael Hamilton, founder of security firm Critical Insight.

FBI leaders, while officially discouraging the practice, have said they will not pursue the people and companies that pay ransoms if they don’t violate sanctions prohibiting payments to named criminal groups especially close to the Russian government.

New hacking disclosure requirements could make cyberspace less opaque

“This case will certainly make executives, incident responders and anybody else connected with deciding whether to pay or disclose ransom payments think a little harder about their legal obligations. And that’s not a bad thing,” said Brett Callow, who researches ransomware at security firm Emsisoft. “As is, too much happens in shadows, and that lack of transparency can undermine cybersecurity efforts.”

Most security professionals had been anticipating Sullivan’s acquittal, noting that he had kept the CEO and others who were not charged informed of what was happening.

“Personal liability for corporate decisions with executive stakeholder input is a new territory that’s somewhat uncharted for security executives,” said Dave Shackleford, owner of Voodoo Security. “I fear it will lead to a lack of interest in our field, and increased skepticism about infosec overall.”

John Johnson, a “virtual” chief information security officer for multiple companies, agreed. “Your company leadership could make choices that can have very personal repercussions to you and your lifestyle,” he said. “Not saying everything Joe did was right or perfect, but we can’t bury our head and say it will never happen to us.”

Prosecutors argued in Sullivan’s case that his use of a nondisclosure agreement with the hackers was evidence that he participated in a coverup. They said the break-in was a hack that was followed by extortion as the hackers threatened to publish the data they took, and so it should not have qualified for Uber’s bug bounty program to reward friendly security researchers.

But the reality is that as the hacking of corporations has gotten worse, the way companies have dealt with it has moved far past the letter of the law when Sullivan was accused of breaking it.

Bug bounties usually require nondisclosure deals, some of which last forever.

“Bug bounty programs are being misused to hide vulnerability information. In the case of Uber, they were used to cover up a breach,” Katie Moussouris, who established a bug bounty program at Microsoft and now runs her own vulnerability resolution company, said in an interview.

The case against Sullivan started when a hacker emailed Uber anonymously and described a security lapse that allowed him and a partner to obtain data from one of the company’s Amazon repositories. It emerged that they had used a stray digital key Uber had left exposed to get into the Amazon account, where they found and extracted an unencrypted backup of data on more than 50 million Uber riders and 600,000 drivers.

Sullivan’s team steered them toward Uber’s bounty program and noted that the top payout under it was $10,000. The hackers said they would need six figures and threatened to release the data.

A protracted negotiation ensued that ended with a $100,000 payment and a promise from the hackers that they had destroyed the data and would not disclose what they had done. While that looks like a coverup, testimony showed that Sullivan’s staff used the process to get clues that would lead them to the real identities of the perpetrators, which they felt was necessary leverage to hold them to their word. The two were later arrested and pleaded guilty to hacking charges, and one testified for the prosecution in Sullivan’s trial.

The obstruction charge drew strength from the fact that Uber at the time was nearing the end of a Federal Trade Commission investigation following a major 2014 breach.

A charge of actively hiding a felony, or misprision, could also apply to many of the corporate chiefs who send bitcoin to overseas hackers without telling anyone else what happened. While the number of those hush-ups is impossible to get, it is clearly a large figure. Otherwise, federal officials would not have pressed for recent legislation that will require ransomware notifications from critical infrastructure victims to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

The Securities and Exchange Commission is also pushing for more disclosure. The conviction stunned corporate security and compliance leaders and will rivet their attention on the details of those rules.

What the SEC says about cybersecurity disclosure

The case against Sullivan was weaker in some respects than one might expect from a trial aimed at setting a precedent.

While he directed the response to the two hackers, many others at the company were in the loop, including a lawyer on Sullivan’s team, Craig Clark. Evidence showed that Sullivan told Uber’s then-chief executive, Travis Kalanick, within hours of learning about the threat himself, and that Kalanick approved Sullivan’s strategy. The company’s chief privacy lawyer, who was overseeing the response to the FTC, was informed, and the head of the company’s communications team had details as well.

Clark, the designated legal lead on breaches, was given immunity to testify against his former boss. On cross-examination, he acknowledged advising the team that the attack would not have to be disclosed if the hackers were identified, agreed to delete what they had taken and could convince the company that they had not spread the data further, all of which eventually came to pass.

Prosecutors were left to challenge “whether Joe Sullivan could have possibly believed that,” as one of them put it in closing arguments Friday.

Sullivan’s attorney Angeli said that the real world functioned differently from bug bounty ideals and the policies laid out in company manuals.

“At the end of the day, Mr. Sullivan led a team that worked tirelessly to protect Uber’s customers,” Angeli told the jury.

The Kalanick era was one of rapid expansion and scandal

After Kalanick was forced out of the company for unrelated scandals, his successor, Dara Khosrowshahi, came in and learned of the breach. Sullivan depicted it to him as a routine payoff, prosecutors said, editing from one email the amount of the payoff and the fact that the hackers had obtained unencrypted data, including phone numbers, on tens of millions of riders. After a later investigation turned up the full story, Khosrowshahi testified, he fired Sullivan for not telling him more, sooner.

Eager to show that it was operating in a new era, the company helped the U.S. attorney’s office build a case against Sullivan. And the prosecutors in turn unsuccessfully pressed Sullivan to implicate Kalanick, who would have been a far bigger prize but was not damned by the surviving written evidence, according to people familiar with the process.

Bug bounties were never meant to offer as much money to hackers as criminals or governments would pay. Instead, they were designed to offer some cash to those already inclined to stay above board.

But the companies are the ones paying the bill even when the programs are run by outside vendors such as HackerOne and Bugcrowd. Disputes between the researchers reporting the security holes and the companies with the holes are now common.

The two sides differ over whether a bug was “in scope,” meaning inside the areas where the company said it wanted help. They differ over how much a bug is worth, or if it is worthless because others had already found it. And they differ over how, or even if, the researcher can disclose the work after the bug has been fixed or the company opts not to change anything.

The bounty platforms have arbitration procedures for those disputes, but since the companies are footing the bill, many hackers see bias. Too much protesting, and they get booted from the platform entirely.

“If you're hacking on a bug bounty program for the love of hacking and making security better, that's the wrong reason, because you have no control over whether a company decides to patch in a timely matter or not,” said John Jackson, a researcher who cut back on his bounty work and now sells vulnerability information when he can.

Casey Ellis, founder of Bugcrowd, acknowledged that some companies use bounty programs to hush up problems that should have been disclosed under state or federal rules.

“That’s definitely a thing that happens,” Ellis said.

Ransomware numbers appear to be falling, but that news might not be as good as it sounds

Ransomware attacks were rare when Sullivan was charged, growing dramatically in the years that followed to become a threat to U.S. national security.

The techniques in those attacks have also shifted.

At the beginning of 2020, most ransomware merely encrypted files and demanded money for the key to unlock them. By the end of that year, most ransom attacks included the outright theft of files, setting up a second ransom demand to prevent their public release, according to a 2021 report by the Ransomware Task Force, an industry-led group that includes representatives from the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the FBI, and the Secret Service.

More recently, cryptocurrency exchanges have been robbed and then negotiated to deliver massive payments to get those funds back, a freewheeling practice bearing little resemblance to traditional bounties.

“Especially over the past six months in the crypto space, the model is ‘build it until we get hacked, and we’ll figure it out from there,’ ” said Ellis.

As average payouts zoomed past Sullivan’s, into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, more businesses turned to insurance companies for predictability.

But often, the insurance companies reasoned it was cheaper to pay than to cover the damage from lost files. Some paid regularly, ensuring steady earnings for the gangs.

Making payments illegal, as some have proposed, would not actually stop them, the FBI has said. It would instead deliver the extortionists yet another club to hold over their victims after payment is made.

At least so far, Congress has agreed, declining to ban the transactions. Which means that deals like Sullivan’s will continue to happen every week.

Will all of them be disclosed when required under state laws or federal consent decrees? Probably not.

But don’t expect those who hush things up to end up in handcuffs.

Killexams : How Nonprofits Can Protect Their Donor Data in the Cloud

When considering data collection, it’s also worth asking who has access to specific information and how it’s handled, both internally and externally.

“What that really means is, the focus is on the people and the process,” Plaggemier says. “So make sure, for example, that you have a thorough, robust third-party risk process so that you’re really vetting your vendors.”

This is an area where nonprofits have traditionally struggled. One exact data point highlighted by Amazon Web Services found that 76 percent of nonprofits lack a data strategy.

A failure to think strategically about data could lead to poor internal data handling, raising the risk of insider threats.

“It’s that sort of obvious stuff,” Plaggemier says, “like making sure you know who’s got access to what applications, and that you restrict access to only what’s absolutely needed for people to do their jobs.”

The not-so-obvious stuff may need attention too. For example, public-facing employee directories may expose employee email to external threats, making them more susceptible to phishing attacks.

Keep external vendors in mind as well. Plaggemier notes, for example, that nonprofits often work with marketing vendors that need to be on top of data management issues.

“Make sure that you have marketing vendors that understand and are on top of all those changes and can advise you, and get legal counsel to make sure that you’re complying with those regulations,” she says.

By limiting the scope of who has access to sensitive data, you can limit the potential scope of attack.

LEARN MORE: How to stave off cybersecurity threats in the cloud.

Many nonprofits have found comfort in using cloud platforms such as AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure to manage their technology needs, in part because they may not have the resources to manage a complex technology stack on their own.

But that doesn’t get them off the hook for managing their infrastructure. On the contrary, as data becomes more complex and is used in more places, cloud use can create unanticipated security issues over time, requiring periodic reassessment — a concept called cloud security posture management (CSPM).

Misconfiguration is a common issue that plagues cloud infrastructure, especially with a multicloud approach, where security has to be maintained across multiple cloud environments. As cloud infrastructure tends to grow quickly, the need for CSPM becomes more important.

Plaggemier recommends working closely with potential vendors to understand their offerings and ensure that basic features such as multifactor authentication are a part of their feature list.

“Cloud services are so prevalent right now, and for organizations that are small, like a lot of nonprofits, that’s what we’re all using,” she says. “So you just have to know what questions to ask and go from there.”

For organizations looking to manage their data safely in the cloud, using a service such as CDW’s Cloud Security Posture Assessment can make sense of what’s working and what’s not — and where the gaps might be in the infrastructure.

Killexams : Nutanix and Microsoft partner to simplify infrastructure deployment and management to support modern applications

In the post-pandemic era, enterprises are looking for elasticity, agility and the ability to drive innovation without upfront investments. Given that organizations have an on-premises footprint for regulatory or data reasons, hybrid cloud has emerged as something of an ideal operating model.

Nutanix is meeting this need with its Nutanix Cloud Clusters on Azure. The solution makes it simple to extend on-prem Nutanix to any Microsoft Azure region by moving applications and workloads without refactoring or retooling, according to Thomas Cornely (pictured, left), senior vice president of product management at Nutanix Inc.

“What we do is we extend the Nutanix operating model to workloads running in Azure using the same core stack that you’re running on-premises,” he stated. “So once you have a cluster deployed in NC2 on Azure, it’s going to look like the same cluster that you might be running at the edge or in your own data center using the same tools, using the same admin.”

Cornely; Eric Lockard (pictured, right), corporate vice president of Azure Specialized Workloads at Microsoft; and Induprakas Keri (pictured, center), senior vice president of HCI and chief product security officer of Nutanix, spoke with theCUBE industry analyst Dave Vellante during a special broadcast, titled “Accelerate Hybrid Cloud With Nutanix and Microsoft.” They discussed how NC2 on Azure delivers an easy, secure and seamless hybrid cloud by offering the same performance, stack, automation, workflows and networking across on-prem and cloud environments.

In a separate interview, Alvaro Celis, vice president of global ISV commercial solutions at Microsoft, and Michal Lesiczka, vice president of the cloud and database partner ecosystem at Nutanix, spoke with theCUBE industry analyst Lisa Martin. They discussed the partnership between Nutanix and Microsoft and why hybrid cloud is a perfect fit for enhanced scalability, flexibility and app modernization. (* Disclosure below.)

Providing a consistent infrastructure and management plane

Not only does NC2 on Azure simplify cloud migration, but it also provides Elastic Disaster Recovery. As a result, the ultimate vision is to make the cloud journey easy without rewriting applications, as well as extending some of the cloud capabilities down to the on-prem infrastructure, according to Cornely.

“We’re doing on-premises IT disaster recovery and something that we refer to as Elastic Disaster Recovery, being able to go and actually configure a secondary site to protect your on-premises workloads,” he explained. “With investments that we’ve done together with Azure Arc, for example, we’re really extending the Azure control plane down onto on-premise Nutanix clusters and bringing the capabilities that provides to the Nutanix customer, as well as various Azure services like our data services and Azure SQL Server.”

NC2 on Azure takes the challenge of “remodeling” away because applications are shifted to the cloud as they are. This makes the cloud journey easier, given that enterprises are able to access Azure services from the same application running on an NC2 cluster, according to Keri.

“One of the things that you have done really well with the NC2 on Azure is that NC2 is not something that sits by Azure’s side; it’s fully integrated into the Azure Fabric, especially the software-defined networking, SDN piece,” he said. “Your management claim looks the same, your high-performance notes, the NVMe notes, they look the same.”

Despite the complexity of hybrid cloud, NC2 on Azure makes it simpler because a similar operating model is deployed at the edge, on-prem and in the public cloud. Furthermore, a lift-and-shift approach is employed, according to Cornely.

“We allow teams to go and basically have a solution that allows you to go and take any application running on-premises and move it as-is to any Azure region where NC2 is available,” he added.

Even though public cloud has a bunch of inherent advantages, such as being able to innovate without significant upfront costs, Lockard believes retaining some workloads on-prem is being driven by sovereignty and data-gravity reasons. As a result, the need for hybrid cloud becomes more pressing.

“There is a trend toward public cloud, but you know not everything can go to the cloud, especially right away,” he pointed out. “So, really, hybrid is the way to achieve the best of both worlds, really to kind of leverage the assets and investments that customers have on-premises but also take advantage of the cloud for bursting, originality or expansion, especially coming out of the pandemic.”

Since NC2 is an infrastructure layer, Keri believes it enhances and makes security and management easier through the company’s Prism solution, which provides an automated control plane that uses machine learning to support predictive analytics and automated data movement. Furthermore, it tackles the network complexity, because users are provided with a virtual private cloud.

“Down the road, if you have a containerized application, you’ll actually be able to take it from on-prem and run it on NC2,” Keri stated. “The NC2 offering itself is an infrastructure-level offering. And the trick is that the storage that you’re used to, the high-performance storage that defines Nutanix to begin with, the hypervisor that you’re used to, all of them are available to you on NC2 in Azure the same way that they used to do on-prem.”

Here’s the complete video interview with Thomas Cornely, Induprakas Keri and Eric Lockard:

An innovation journey: Doing more with less

Since the business context has significantly changed, especially in the post-pandemic era, enterprises have become conscious about cost and efficiency. NC2 on Azure accelerates the cloud journey, given that organizations have different amounts of pressure, priorities and imperatives, according to Celis.

“The Nutanix Cloud Clusters are often the fastest way on which customers will be able to do that journey into the cloud, because it’s very consistent with environments that they already know and use on-premise,” he noted. “And once they go into the cloud, then they have all the benefits of scale, agility, resiliency, security and cost benefits that they’re looking for.”

The foundation of the partnership between Nutanix and Microsoft has been customer centricity, Lesiczka pointed out, adding that this has been instrumental in enabling the hybrid cloud concept to see the light of day.

“We actually entered a partnership a couple years ago, so we’ve been working on this solution for quite a while,” he said. “But really our ultimate goal from day one was really to make our customers’ journeys to hybrid cloud simpler and faster. So really for both companies, I think our goal is being that trusted partner for our customers in their innovation journey.”

By combining the advanced capabilities of Nutanix and Microsoft, Lesiczka believes the silos between networking and computed storage are broken down. As a result, operations get simplified and Nutanix’s hyperconverged infrastructure has been instrumental in the materialization of hybrid cloud.

“If you look at Azure at Microsoft, they’re truly best-in-class cloud infrastructure with cutting-edge services and innovation and really global scale,” Lesiczka explained. “So when you think about those two combinations, that’s really powerful for customers to be able to take their applications — whether they’re on-prem, in the cloud or even at the edge — and really combining all those various hybrid scenarios.”

Value addition and delivering consistency is at the heart of the Nutanix-Microsoft partnership, according to Celis. As a result, scalability, performance, resilience and elasticity are benefits when utilizing hybrid cloud.

“When you see two companies coming together with the mission of empowering customers and with the customer at the center and trying to solve real problems — in this case, how to drive hybrid cloud and what is the best approach for them — opening more opportunities is extremely inspiring,” Celis said. “So how do we combine our capabilities between Nutanix and Microsoft to be sure that that hybrid cloud journey that everyone is going to take can be simplified?”

Since the North Star of the partnership is to continue to make it easy for enterprises to adopt, migrate and modernize their applications, Lesiczka believes NC2 on Azure has set the ball rolling. In fact, the preview of NC2 on Azure was oversubscribed, indicating a high demand for the product. Working from the customers backwards has also been an ideal stepping stone.

“Like you mentioned, we’ve had a great preview, oversubscribed,” Lesiczka noted. “We had lots of, not only customers, but also partners battle-testing the solution. We’ve been working with partners like TCS and Citrix, where they share the same goal as Microsoft and Nutanix. So they’re going to be leveraging NC2 on Azure to really provide those hybrid cloud experiences for their solutions, building on top of the work that we’ve done together.”

5G Sunset Cell Tower: Cellular communications tower for mobile phone and video data transmission

By Christopher Gannatti, CFA

WisdomTree has a platform of different thematic investing strategies, and really any thematic strategy has its own infrastructure requirements. Information technology megatrends - think cloud computing, 5G connectivity, the internet of things or even artificial intelligence - may seem like they don’t need infrastructure in the same way as megatrends involved in making more physical things, but they do.

A lot of these megatrends could not function to the same degree that we are used to without cell phone towers and data centers.

New Economy Real Estate vs. Old Economy Real Estate

This year has been defined by the macroeconomic landscape, and inflation is at the top of that list of defining factors. During a high inflation environment, real estate is an interesting asset class.

First of all, we’ve seen how the markets have emphasized cash flows over the concept of possible future profits. Many types of real estate investments are known for their capability to generate cash flows.

Secondly, there is the fact that, in typical inflationary environments, one should focus more on real assets - assets where the value should increase at least in line with inflation. The value of real estate has been known to do this over time, even if we could never guarantee it always would in the future.

But if we peel the layers back - after the Covid-19 pandemic, are we as excited by strip malls and old-style office buildings as we once were?

In our view, ‘New Economy’ real estate is defined by the physical infrastructure that needs to exist in order for different megatrends that people already believe in to continue to scale up. Two of the most important focal points of megatrend infrastructure are:

Cell Phone Towers

When considering cell phone tower real estate in 2022, the primary attributes are incredible visibility into business cash flows and also very little economic variability. These companies tend to deal in very long-dated contracts. They also tend to operate in the investment-grade end of the credit spectrum.1

If we think beyond the difficulties of the current macroeconomic picture, we can see that we are in the earlier parts of the global 5G deployment. Over the years, we have seen 2G, 3G, 4G… and now we are seeing 5G.

The primary activities to upgrade global networks began in 2021, and while we can’t know for sure how long the upgrade cycle will take, it could be somewhere in the range of 5 to 7 years as a reasonable prediction. There tend to be both software and hardware-oriented elements with these upgrades.2

The business model of cell phone towers is fairly simple, in that the entities that want to use the hardware - like telecommunications companies - will pay regular fees to do so.

If we think of ‘data as the new oil,’ it’s similar to how energy producers pay the pipeline companies to use the infrastructure. It’s interesting to consider the difference between U.S. and non-U.S. companies with respect to how they tend to deal with inflation:

  • U.S. companies have tended to sign deals with longer, multi-year terms and 3% annual, fixed escalators. In past years, this was excellent. In years when inflation is at or near double-digit levels, of course, it is less ideal.3
  • Non-U.S. companies tend to see deals where there are uncapped escalators that are indexed to various measures of consumer price inflation.4

Another point - investors may be curious about the difference between focusing more directly on the companies that, for instance, provide the 5G services, as opposed to the companies that provide the infrastructure that allows for the data to be transferred more efficiently.

We note that, for telecommunications companies in particular, the rates that they can charge consumers are highly regulated. These companies are also forced to make huge capital expenditures to be able to say they can at least match the best network capabilities.

Cell phone towers may not have the same visibility, but we return to our original note about the visibility and limited variability of cash flows. Remember - it’s more about the fact that the pipes are needed than exactly what is flowing through them.

Data Centers

If readers take away one point about data centers from this piece it should be that they are all about scale. If one is thinking about Equinix (EQIX) and Digital Realty Trust (DLR) today, it should be to recognize that these are unrivalled global platforms. Operating a new data center today at low scale would be a horrible business. Equinix data centers, spread across many of the world’s countries, function as the backbone of the internet, in a way.

Some might wonder why the world’s largest companies, like Microsoft (MSFT), Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOG) (GOOGL), can’t just build their own data centers? Why do they need to pay Equinix or Digital Realty Trust? We can agree that the negotiating power of data center providers against these companies has not been high historically, but in 2022 it has been interesting that a few things are changing.

  • Internet traffic has been increasing.
  • The supply of the right types of semiconductors to use in data centers has continued to be tight.
  • It is not necessarily a simple matter to increase the capacity of existing data centers or to build new data centers in the right locations, at least not with enough speed to match demand.

If one thinks of the supply of data centers like the supply of say, commodities, then if the supply is tightening and the demand is stable to increasing, then the price should tend to increase. It’s possible that we will see some of the biggest growth in pricing power of data centers in 2022 than we’ve seen in exact history.5

We also note an interesting practice that we have seen from Equinix, again, one of the largest players in the space. Equinix actually hedges roughly two years of its forecasted energy demand. This means that customers will not have to pay the full cost of energy price increases. At a time when energy prices have risen significantly, this is a very interesting policy to consider.6

Conclusion: Real Estate Could Have a Place within a Thematic Strategy

Thematic equities are frequently equated with ‘growth equities,’ and this is done with good reason. However, for those thematic investors that might, for example, prefer to see ‘cash flow generation’ as a primary attribute, New Economy real estate is an interesting consideration.

A data center real estate investment trust (REIT) will exhibit an income statement with a totally different look and feel than a Software-as-a-Service (SAAS) cloud company.

Maybe in 2022’s macro environment the correlation between these two is a bit higher, but once the fundamentals of the underlying businesses are able to come back to the fore, we think the two should exhibit significant differences in risk and return.

Investors looking to allocate to a strategy that would typically have significant exposure to cell phone towers and data centers may want to take a deeper look at the WisdomTree New Economy Real Estate Fund (WTRE).

Killexams : Liquid Cloud, Microsoft Collaborate to Deploy Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure in Africa

Fadekemi Ajakaiye 

Infrastructure expansion accelerates digital transformation and facilitates a connected African continent

Through its Africa Transformation Office (ATO), Microsoft is working with Liquid Cloud to enable businesses with cloud services across Africa. Liquid Cloud will work together with Microsoft to deliver resilient cloud solutions using its colocation and connectivity capabilities alongside Microsoft Azure Stack HCI (hyperconverged infrastructure) and Azure Arc technology. The result enables customers in markets such as Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe to meet regulatory and data residency requirements, address low latency workloads, strengthen resilience, and enable business continuity. 

Expanding access to Azure across Africa 

The hybrid cloud environment extends Azure capabilities enabling customers to create cloud-native applications faster with Azure Platform as a Service (PaaS) and data services such as App Service, Functions, Logic Apps, Azure SQL Managed Instance, PostgreSQL database, and Azure machine learning. As a result, customers will be able to innovate anywhere and use the Azure platform to bring new solutions to life – to solve today’s challenges and create the future.

“We witnessed an accelerated adoption of cloud technologies in Africa, and businesses are now reaping the benefits of their investment. Our customers are increasingly moving to hybrid work culture, meaning the demand for cloud-based services will only grow. Our partnership will enable us to build comprehensive and edge-based cloud capabilities that meet customer regulatory requirements and ensure that they deliver value to their customers,” said David Behr, CEO of Liquid Cloud and Cyber Security. 

“Critical infrastructure enablers are needed to provide access to the cloud to accelerate digital

transformation and the adoption of digital technologies. Working with Liquid Cloud, access to the local cloud will be available to more organizations and highly regulated industries across the continent. In addition, hybrid cloud provides in-country resources that address data-residency, latency, and storage requirements,” says Wael Elkabbany, General Manager Africa Regional Cluster, Microsoft.
