    New year, new WAN: SD-WAN adoption takes off

    More and more enterprises are using software-defined networking principles in the wide area network, with industry experts predicting that SD-WAN adoption will skyrocket in 2017. In fact, some top analysts expect the market to grow as much as 90% every year for at least the next three years. In this edition of Network Evolution, we explore three diverse SD-WAN deployment stories to illustrate the growing trend and offer insight into how SD-WAN adoption plays out on the ground. These case studies examine the use of the technology in enterprises ranging from a garden equipment manufacturer to a major oil company, using products from three top vendors -- Cisco, Viptela and Cybera. If you're considering SD-WAN adoption in your wide area network, these real-world stories will offer valuable insight.

    Also in this issue, open source networking could open the door to even more big changes in the year ahead. One leading analyst says it's not a question of whether enterprises will ultimately use open source, but how.

    And finally, team messaging applications like Slack and HipChat make communicating easy, but they could also put enterprises at risk.

  • Cloud-based data storage for primary data made simpler

    While the number of enterprises that store data in the cloud continues to rise, the amount of data that they store there is still low. Today, public cloud storage is still predominantly used for cold data, archiving or object storage. IT managers are still largely concerned about storing primary data in the cloud for two primary reasons: security is no longer in the hands of the administrator, and cloud transaction times are typically slower than reading or writing data on premises. Because primary data often needs to be frequently accessed and can contain some of a business' most sensitive information, to many storage administrators, it may seem like cloud storage should be automatically ruled out. But that’s not always the case -- including primary data in an enterprise's cloud storage repository often results in a bigger return on investment. Additionally, some primary data, such as applications that generate large amounts of Internet of things data, may ultimately make more sense in a cloud infrastructure. And it might make more sense for business processes, too -- primary data often needs to be accessed from a variety of endpoints, while collaboration is increasingly a must for employees. Numerous cloud file-sharing applications now available on the market can make that possible. For the storage administrator who is weighing the pros and cons of storing more business-critical data in the cloud, this Drill Down will provide the information needed to determine whether data can benefit from and can be secure while being stored in a cloud environment. Continue Reading

  • Pondering the question of IoT data ownership

    As the use cases for the internet of things continue to expand into various sectors and the benefits of analyzing that data collected from IoT grow, the question of IoT data ownership and access privileges is coming to the fore. But we can't simply rely on traditional laws and regulations to set policies around IoT data, writes columnist and former CIO Harvey Koeppel. Instead, he says, we need a different way of thinking: one that will enable us to catch up with the fast evolution of IoT and other technologies.

    In this SearchCIO handbook, Koeppel lists four broad, comprehensive questions around IoT data ownership that CIOs and IT execs should be considering and collaborating around to ensure not just their companies' success, but also the advancement of our society. In our second piece, CTO Niel Nickolaisen delves into why he thinks the "technology everywhere and in everything" world has moved IoT security and privacy to the top of CIOs' priority lists. In our last piece, Features Writer Jason Sparapani looks into two thorny IoT legal issues: data ownership and intellectual property rights.
