March 29, 2013 — by Nir Ilani1

At first glance, application delivery and security might seem unrelated because they appear to solve and address different challenges from different domains. But a closer look actually reveals that they are entwined. In this post I’ll break down the ways in which application delivery and security work hand-in-hand.

The Mobile Momentum: How Can Carriers Manage Increasing Traffic in the Mobile Space?

February 25, 2013 — by Nir Ilani1

As their revenues decline and mobile carriers continue to struggle with the increasing traffic demand from their customers, Long Term Evolution (LTE) looks like a good candidate to reduce the cost per bit. I recently read a nice analysis from Deloitte that claims that 2013 will be a strong year for LTE adoption, predicting that more than 200 operators in 75 countries will launch LTE networks alongside their existing HSxPA networks. With a diverse range of LTE handsets and tablets available in the consumer market, overall LTE subscription is expected to exceed 200 million clients.

Road-show in APAC: It Was a Hell of a Ride!

December 20, 2012 — by Nir Ilani1

A couple of weeks ago I returned from a business trip to Korea and China where I met with a number of customers and partners from various vertical markets. The most interesting thing about this trip was that these two countries continue to encounter huge increases in their Internet traffic due to steady, on-going online business expansion. The customers I met with included an online payment services company, various leading mobile carriers, a large bank and a cable network operator among others. What I found common to these companies is that almost all of them are considering their next-generation strategy with regards to their data center technologies and operations. And while each customer obviously has a different environment with distinct applications and infrastructures it was clear that they are all keen on delivering one thing – an optimized Web experience.

Key Trends Impacting the Next-Gen Data Center – Part 2

May 29, 2012 — by Nir Ilani0

In the first part of my blog series, I shed light on the key trends that impact the next-generation data center including consolidation, virtualization, connectivity, convergence and green IT. In this part, it’s time to discuss what are the best-of-breed solutions to address these trends in the most cost-effective way. I chose to start with data center consolidation and virtualization not only because I believe they’re the prominent ones – but also since they go hand in hand together. So here we go:

Impressions from a Business Seminar in Vienna: Freezing Outside, Hot Inside!

February 12, 2012 — by Nir Ilani1

A couple of weeks ago, during part of my European business travel to visit our customers, I had the privilege of being invited to speak at a seminar focused on next-generation data center needs & trends at Interxion in Vienna, Austria. While the outside temperature was almost zero, the seminar was one of the best (read: fun) I’ve ever attended.

But first, who’s Interxion? Interxion is a leading pan-European provider of hosting and colocation services – which means that their end-customers own and manage their servers/network equipment while Interxion takes care of the data center space, electricity, cooling and connectivity.  They have huge, impressive operation operating 28 data centers in 11 countries and serving 12,000 customers (carriers, enterprises, content providers, mobile service providers and more).
