Cloud In A Box - Cloud Infrastructure In Remote Areas

Cloud Infrastructure In Remote Areas 

How can cloud infrastructure be used by those in remote areas? The development of hybrid cloud infrastructure has enabled teams to operate cloud applications and workloads in the field. The core benefit of hybrid cloud technology is its agility. When your team is operating in remote areas, being able to adapt and quickly change direction is often crucial to collective success. 

From machine learning inference to real-time data integration, those working in research and education have been surprised by how much Oracle’s new Roving Edge can achieve. The possibilities of hybrid cloud products are tremendous – creating the scope for educational establishments to use this ruggedized, portable box for a variety of research projects. 

This year, we are seeing a roll-out of hybrid cloud products – with companies like Oracle leading the charge through their innovative technology. Educational establishments and organisations should take full advantage of these mobile cloud infrastructure products. We truly believe that hybrid cloud products have the ability to transform the nature of fieldwork as we know it. 


Rethinking Cloud Technology For Fieldwork & Exploration 

Imagine the possibilities of being able to operate cloud applications in remote locations. This could give research teams instant access to valuable data to inform their fieldwork. Oracle’s new Roving Edge Device (RED) is able to offer scalable server nodes in a portable box. It is a cloud-in-a-box service, designed for those looking to leverage data from remote locations. 

From oil tankers deep at sea to music festivals set in rural areas, with the support of hybrid cloud technology, Oracle’s Roving Edge Device (RED) is able to confidently deliver cloud computing and storage solutions regardless of your location. This is a new piece of hardware that may prove to be a complete game-changer for fieldwork and exploration. 

When it comes to fieldwork and exploration, researchers want to use all the data they can to inform their studies. RED devices will shake up how people use cloud applications in remote locations. Alongside machine learning inference and real-time data integration, query-intensive data warehouses and augmented analytics can also be achieved using these devices. 


Deploying Hybrid Cloud Anywhere In The World 

RED devices have attracted interest from major organisations and institutions looking to embrace hybrid cloud capabilities. The US military was signed up by Oracle as an early adopter – signalling a major sign of confidence in these devices. We believe RED devices will become particularly important in industries relying on bespoke servers, such as oil and gas and those conducting experiments in the field, such as universities and research institutions. 

When it comes to using this hybrid cloud technology in remote locations, such as the desert or ocean, connectivity should never become an issue. Utilising the power of local sensors, the Roving Edge Device will be able to execute applications and perform at the highest level in any scenario. Also, timely insights into data can be provided through low-latency processing. 

Oracle’s Roving Edge infrastructure is essentially a mobile extension of a client’s Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) environment. With a similar interface, you can expect a unified experience. These devices can run as a single node or in clusters of between 5 and 15 nodes – with the internal hardware containing 40 CPUs and 61 TB. There’s no shortage of power behind REDs. 

Is your educational institution leveraging data in fieldwork from remote locations? 

How could you use hybrid cloud technology to access and process more data in real-time?
