Image
A Data Center is a large space owned/leased by big corporations to run their IT infrasturcture businesses. One runs their own infrastucure in these DCs, or operates for a customer/s which is popularly known as infrastucure outsourcing.

Location and Physical Security : Prime concern, this is the place where your data lives, after all. These facilities are specially designed to make abundant airflow available, well built to withatand natural calamities etc.,

Future thoughts - Video hosting platforms

Image
The business world is no stranger to video content these days, with many large corporates building libraries of streaming content for their own employees, business partners or customers. Some have built their own Enterprise Video Platforms (EVPs) to help them create, manage and distribute that content, but the vast majority rely on third-party software solutions to do it for them.

On-Premise Solutions of the Past

In the past, streaming libraries were exclusively licensed, on-premise applications owned and maintained by the business itself. But the emergence of cloud computing and software as a service (SaaS) delivery model in the last decade has led to a different approach that allows applications and content to be hosted on third-party servers in remote data centers and paid for via subscription fees.
Cloud Solutions of the Future

EVPs themselves come in different flavors. Some businesses use products or services to create internal YouTube like applications just for their own employe…

Elon musk

Image
Specially speaking at an AI autonomous vehicle industry event this week and was asked whether there is any kind of connection between Elon Musk’s efforts with Tesla and his activities with Neuralink, which is his futuristic play on using advanced tech to tap into human brains.

The question was prompted by last Tuesday’s Neuralink presentation (on July 16, 2019, see the recorded video here), showcasing Musk and various Neuralink scientists and researchers, touting their newly unveiled wares and software that they’ve been toiling away on, having crafted it with great intensity and single-minded purposefulness in their souped-up neurotechnology labs.

My answer about the potential connecting tissue between Tesla and Neuralink is that the simplistic answer is there isn’t any direct linkage per se (other than Musk himself), but, if you are willing to stretch your imagination, stepping outside most anyone’s comfort zone, there might be a synergistic aspect in the realm of self-driving cars.
