A path to Mobile Edge Computing with Red Hat OpenStack.

Mobile-edge computing (MEC) is a highly distributed computing architecture based on the deployment of small computing units in both outdoor and indoor radio access network (RAN) facilities at the edge of their mobile networks. Red Hat has joined a recently created European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) working group to help define MEC use-cases and architecture details as a complementary effort to the existing NFV and 5G initiatives.

Innovate to renew the energy of oil and gas.

Lately, when I go to the gas station to refuel my vehicle, I am pleasantly surprised by the price and love the numbers I see—as a consumer. However, falling gas prices have obvious implications on the oil and gas industry, as reflected by the stocks going “downstream,” so to speak, in recent times. While the economic pundits work out the global market forces, what can oil and gas companies do to re-energize and rejuvenate this sector? Innovate. Of course, for innovation to be effective, it should have proper context and tangible business benefits.

Fueling innovation with open source technologies in the oil and gas industry

When Australian oil and gas producer Santos needed to get data more quickly into the hands and minds of its users, it turned to open source. By replacing a proprietary IT infrastructure that was distributed among data servers, application servers, and application workstations across several sites with an open source solution, Santos was able to cut IT costs and create new opportunities for faster data processing and simulation capabilities. In short, the open source move set up Santos for cost-effective, high-performing IT that can stimulate innovation. You can read about it in this case study.

Perhaps you all know that song from the seventies written by popular British composer and artist Albert Hammond: It Never Rains in Southern California. Those of us lucky enough to live in California enjoy some of the best weather on the planet with a recurring exception – we have been in a drought for the last few years with or without El Nino. But when we occasionally do get some rain… oh, but it pours!
