Cloud security trends and challenges

Cloud security is a top priority as more and more organizations continue to place their data and applications in the cloud. According to data from Statista, as of 2022, about 60% of corporate data was already in the cloud. In fact, not only a large number of companies are already in the cloud, but also

What is a cloud server?

What is a cloud server?

Cloud servers are virtual servers that, just as traditional servers, deliver processing power and data storage. However, they are virtualized, delivered over a public or private network, using IPv4 or IPv6, and accessed remotely. How does a cloud server work? Cloud servers are virtualized using a hypervisor like VMware or Openstack. The hypervisor acts as

Cloud computing glossary

The most common terms in cloud computing

In this post we want to collect the most common terms in cloud computing; from basic concepts such as the main cloud service models and types of cloud to more specialized concepts related to cloud computing. Let’s start from the beginning… What is cloud computing? Cloud computing is a computing resources and services distribution model

What is a bare-metal server? Features and advantages

What is a bare-metal server?

A bare-metal server is a physical server with a single tenant. That is to say, a physical server of exclusive use of the client who rents it, which is not shared with other organizations or users. Together with virtual servers, networking and storage, bare-metal servers are an essential part of the IaaS cloud service model.

On-premise vs hosted private cloud comparison

On-premise vs hosted private cloud

As private cloud solutions continue to gain in popularity, the question “on-premise vs hosted private cloud” arises. Companies are looking into the private cloud as an infrastructure solution that offers a balance between the functionalities and scalability of cloud services and the security, control and robustness of traditional IT infrastructures. Both deployment models have points

Comparison of CPU and GPU

CPU and GPU: features, differences and use cases

Both the CPU and GPU are processors intended to process and execute diverse types of instructions and tasks. Even though they serve different purposes and offer different benefits, both of them are an important part of high-performance servers. They can indeed work together to deliver further processing power. One of the main differences is that

OSI model (Open Systems Interconnection model)

OSI model: layers & security attacks

The OSI model, short for Open Systems Interconnection model, is a 7-layer model that describes an architecture of data communications in computer networking. The OSI reference model was developed in the late 1970s. However, due to its late invention, it was not implemented and has only remained as a reference model. The current model implemented

What is Artificial Intelligence?

What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)? Definition and use cases

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a scientific field focused on creating machines and computers able to think, learn and act in a human-like manner. AI is currently surrounded by a lot of hype and, although still at an early stage, its impact on society is already significant. So, as the industry matures, the number of products

Cloud service models: SaaS, PaaS and IaaS

Main cloud service models: IaaS, PaaS and SaaS

The main three cloud service models are: IaaS, PaaS and SaaS. Each cloud service model covers different user and company needs, and provides a different level of control, security and scalability. IaaS is the cloud service model that offers a higher level of control compared with an on-premises solution. PaaS makes the process of developing

Edge computing

Edge computing & the exponential growth in data

Edge computing is a distributed computing architecture, key for those applications that need a really low latency, such as: self-driving cars, real-time image recognition or Augmented Reality (AR). This new paradigm originates in Content Distribution Networks (CDNs), created in the late 1990s to place content closer to end users as the Internet continued to grow
