Now that we have discussed the networking part , the next step is placing the application into a host. Robin.io’s cloud platform has the concept of master, compute, and storage nodes. Typically, the hardware servers would have multiple NUMA nodes. In order to achieve the best performance, the platform should utilize the resources from the same NUMA node. Failing this – if users are consuming a resource from another NUMA node – then their performance would degrade.

The biggest question facing many businesses today is how to improve the efficiency and agility of their application delivery processes. Along the journey to infrastructure modernization, do they continue to maintain applications as-is, or do they need to be migrated, upgraded or replaced? This blog attempts to answer some of these questions. Take any popular enterprise app, like your Oracle business suite, or even a custom-built application, and it will typically follow a three-tier architecture.

It’s never too early or late to start talking about cloud-native. By 2025, more than 95% of new workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms. Clearly, a lot of organizations are on their way to cloud-native adoption, among them some of the prominent telecom operators of our time. After all, the benefits of cloud-native are most pronounced in the telecom sector, where the need for scale, automation and predictable cost structure at optimal OPEX and CAPEX is more persistent than ever.

As container and Kubernetes adoption grows, developers and DevOps teams are expanding the use cases beyond stateless applications to stateful applications in order to drive operational consistency, extend the agility of containerization to data, gain faster collaboration, and simplify the delivery of data services. However, when it comes to provisioning storage for complex stateful applications that span multiple pods and services, careful storage management and day-to-day data management capabilities and expertise are critical requirements.

Operators are waking up to the benefits of cloud-native, which overcomes the fundamental limitations of software-driven virtualization. An opinionated stack, cloud-native forces vendors to build the deployment models of their network functions in a certain way, shifting the power back to the hands of operators. Hear from industry leaders as they reveal groundbreaking insights in this FutureNet World panel discussion in London. Featuring Partha Seetala, President, Cloud BU, Rakuten Symphony.

As we progress further into the next phases of the wireless evolution, we find that enterprises and consumers have an insatiable appetite for speed and new services. They are adopting the current 5th Generation (5G) mobile network as quickly as it becomes available. However, they require use cases with unprecedented mobility, security, low-latency and tighter integration between wireless and mission critical applications.

As the industry moves into the next phases of the 5G rollout, operators face the need to deliver a greater number of new services, with increased speed, lower latency and strict Quality of Service (QoS), at higher speeds and over more endpoints than ever before. This is the lynchpin for delivering higher quality, more profitable services. Among the many advantages, 5G's inherent virtualization and cloud-native frameworks set the stage for not only hardware-software disaggregation, but also the disaggregation of vendors, promoting best-of-breed Open RAN (O-RAN).

As the industry moves to the next phases of the 5G rollout, operators face the need to deliver a greater number of new services, with increased speed, lower latency and strict Quality of Service (QoS), over more endpoints than ever before. Many begin by deploying 5G radio services connected to a 4G Evolved Packet Core (EPC), known as non-standalone (NSA). While NSA can enable higher speed of services, the EPC is not capable of enabling 5G core's (5GC) rich feature set, including QoS-enabled network slices.
