The difference between Hybrid and Multi-Cloud for the Enterprise

Cloud computing still presents the single biggest opportunity for enterprise companies today. Even though cloud-based solutions have been around for more than 10 years now, the concepts related to cloud continue to confuse many.

Of late, it seems that Hybrid Cloud and Multi-Cloud are the latest concepts creating confusion. To make matters worse, a number of folks (inappropriately) use these terms interchangeably. The reality is that they are very different.

The best way to think about the differences between Hybrid Cloud and Multi-Cloud is in terms of orientation. One addresses a continuum of different services vertically while the other looks at the horizontal aspect of cloud. There are pros and cons to each and they are not interchangeable.

 

Multi-Cloud: The horizontal aspect of cloud

Multi-Cloud is essentially the use of multiple cloud services within a single delivery tier. A common example is the use … Read More »


Leveraging Artificial Intelligence & GPUs for Cybersecurity

Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents a significant opportunity to solve problems previously either not easy to solve or worse, not possible to solve. The combination of AI along with today’s Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) technology provides an added boost to those leveraging sophisticated algorithms in their deep learning solutions. These sophisticated systems are able to train deep learning models and ultimately lead to predictive insights. The objective is to move from reactive to proactive and finally to predictive insights.

The breadth of opportunities that AI presents is wide, however, a significant opportunity is in the Cybersecurity space. One company leveraging the power of AI & GPUs is recent Nvidia Inception Program award winner Deep Instinct. Deep Instinct leverages deep learning to provide insights for zero-day malware detection in both endpoint and mobile devices; two of the key areas of concern in cybersecurity.
