Why Accelerating Data Engineering Across Public Clouds and Private Data Centers is a Game Changer

In this contributed article, Rob Gibbon, Product Manager at Canonical, suggests that data engineers typically know what they need to get done. The problem is that their environment doesn’t always make it easy. If you’re working on premise, it can be hard to get data-intensive solutions off the ground quickly. However, cloud solutions come with lock-in and unpredictable pricing. The game-changer in this scenario is a hybrid solution that will allow you to accelerate data engineering.

Hitachi Vantara’s State of Data Infrastructure Sustainability Report

U.S. businesses have made sustainability a priority, with nearly four in five companies saying that they have developed plans for achieving carbon neutrality (78%) and net zero carbon emissions (79%), according to the State of Data Infrastructure Sustainability, a new report from our friends over at Hitachi Vantara, the modern infrastructure, data management and digital solutions subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501). However, despite this and the fact that 85% of respondents claim to be “on plan” or “ahead of plan” when it comes to their carbon reduction goals, the survey revealed that actual progress may not be as robust as many businesses believe.
