Stick or twist? Is it time to consider cloud repatriation?

Since public cloud services first emerged, businesses have seen their potential to reduce cost and increase flexibility. But as they looked to capitalise on cloud, the desire to quickly unlock benefits often leads to hurried decisions and a lack of thought as to whether cloud was genuinely the best choice. As a result, those organisations that rushed to the cloud are now finding that the benefits sought are not being delivered as expected. This has led to a growing trend of cloud repatriation across organisations of all sizes.

Staying ahead of advanced threats – the role of AI in cybersecurity

Cybersecurity has always been a key focus for many organisations – and it’s perhaps never been as critical to get your defence right. As cyberattacks continue to grow in both frequency and complexity, businesses must understand the current cybersecurity landscape, and how they can capitalise on emerging innovations as part of strategies to keep them ahead of bad actors. One such innovation is artificial intelligence (AI), where insights and intelligence from previous breaches and the latest attack vectors are used to get ahead of threats, reduce the burden on IT teams, and help mitigate the damage done by a security breach.

In this blog, we’ll take a look at the increasing prominence of AI-driven technology in cyber security – the factors that have led to its expanded role, how it can be applied, and why it’s proving a valuable tool as businesses arm themselves against cybercrime.

New Windows 365 features could change your PC strategy

Evolving employee expectations have turned a new spotlight on workplace flexibility. Deploying effective hybrid work capability is now a business-critical requirement, rather than an attractive optional extra.

This new demand has seen many businesses explore virtual desktop infrastructure, but while these solutions can suitably support a virtualised PC environment, the level of expertise needed to deploy and manage this technology, coupled with the overall costs, is an obvious blocker for small and medium sized business.

It’s for this reason that Microsoft, having already capitalised on this shift with Azure Virtual Desktop, released an alternative solution built for SMEs – Windows 365 Cloud PC.

An attractive fit for an important business need, Windows 365 has already proved to be a popular solution. In fact, Microsoft initially had to suspend the release of trial accounts as demand was so high. Now, over a year on from its release, Microsoft has announced a group of new features that further enhances its simplified Cloud PC offering.

Hyperconverged with a twist: why disaggregated makes all the difference

It’s a couple of years since we covered the emergence of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) and it’s easy to see why they’ve since emerged as a popular alternative to traditional three-tier infrastructure models. HCI offers businesses a flexible, scalable way to collapse all three tiers of their existing infrastructure – compute, storage and network – into a single converged appliance, unlocking a number of commercial and operational benefits in the process.
