what constitutes super cloud It certainly generates a great deal of discussion.
This was made clear when TheCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s live broadcast studio, hosted its website Supercloud 2 It happened last week, and it’s a follow up event to CUBE First Super Cloud Conference last August. Enterprise managers, practitioners, and analysts have engaged in a wide-ranging discussion about the impact of an increasing number of companies built on hyperscale cloud platforms.
Emerging trends in self-service infrastructure and how organizations develop their data and cloud strategies formed the basis of an in-depth analysis as participants shed new light on the edge cloud and its impact on enterprise IT. (*Disclosure below.)
Here are four insights you may have missed from our exclusive Enterprise Computing conference:
1. ChatGPT is more than fake college essays.
the Appearance of Open AI’s ChatGPT as a cutting-edge chatbot capable of creating hyper-realistic content has garnered a great deal of media attention in recent weeks. Alarms have been raised about the technology’s ability to operate autonomously Writing term papers And pass us Medical Licensing Examination.
However, seasoned tech industry observers have noted that key sectors of the enterprise are moving toward bringing machine learning and data together in ways that will undoubtedly change how business is done forever. This has been demonstrated in the development of hypercloud platforms built on top of major cloud service providers along with hypercapacity actions themselves.
like Bob MogliaFormer President of Microsoft Enterprise Business and Former CEO of Snowflake Inc. He indicated in his book interview With theCUBE, Snowflake now supports Python to automate tasks, Databricks provides an end-to-end machine learning environment, and the three largest cloud providers offer large-scale analytics platforms for the data stack.
“The underlying superstructure is still emerging, but I think we’ll see the infrastructure evolve to take this concept of learned models and put them alongside more clearly defined models,” Moglia said. “Some of these amazing machine learning programs are in foundational models like GPT and DALL-E, and all the things that happen in these global models need to be applied to the right domains of the business. Machine learning worlds and machine learning models are taking more and more of what applications are doing.”

2. Supercloud is expanding the definition of what can be made programmable.
When object storage started, Chaos Sumo evolved into what it was described As Amazon S3’s first “intelligent cloud storage” in 2017, it marked an early sign of what would become a hyper-cloud evolution.
Chaos Sumo would go on to become ChaosSearch Inc. , the provider of Cloud data platform To activate object storage in a hot analytical environment. Companies can leave the data where it is and take advantage of multilingual tools to extract insights.
The company achieved this innovation by building on Amazon S3 and turning it into a database to provide analytics at scale. Along with others following similar models, such as a container solutions provider Platform9 Systems Inc.ChaosSearch marks an important step towards making the interface infrastructure programmable.
“Our view is that smart object storage can be programmable,” he said. Thomas HazelFounder and CTO of ChaosSearch, at A interview During Supercloud2. “It’s hard to get data to analyze. We simply said we’re going to automate the whole process, give you access to APIs across regions, across clouds. We’re leveraging the super cloud.”

3. Will Starlink provide a viable backup option for enterprise connectivity?
It wasn’t until theCUBE’s last minute interview with Wal-Mart Jack GreenfieldVice President of Enterprise Architecture and Chief Architect of Wal-Mart Global Technology Platform, said that he casually mentioned a very interesting element of his company’s IT operations.
He noted that Wal-Mart relied on SpaceX Starlink Low Earth orbit satellite system as a backup for network connectivity if the fiber goes down.
“When the disconnect happens, we can go back to 5G and Starlink,” Greenfield said. Starlink preferred; It is higher bandwidth. “
It was the Starlink platform Launched In October 2020 and it didn’t even reach 1 million subscribers late last year. At least publicly, the SpaceX project appears to be taking aim mobile travel markethaving previously announced deals with Royal CaribbeanAnd Hawaiian Airlines And carnival corp.
Starlink will face competition from Amazon Inc. Project Kuiper Initiative To deploy a constellation of 3236 Internet satellites. The race for satellite Internet connectivity could be heating up, and having Walmart as a major institutional customer represents an important development for SpaceX in this emerging market.

4. “Enterprise pragmatism” is driving VMware’s business model in 2023.
In 2020, the enterprise application software market has surpassed the non-cloud market for the first time, According to Gartner Inc. By 2025, the non-cloud market is expected to double.
For ISVs, this represents a mouth-watering opportunity and future growth will be driven by the embrace of multicloud services, according to Vittorio Viarengo (pictured), vice president of Cross-Cloud Services at VMware Inc.
Viarengo said in his book Key opening remarks During Supercloud2.
Viarengo is also following this path. VMware has crafted its 2023 strategy based on a pragmatic approach to an enterprise market that is increasingly dominated by multicloud customer preferences.
“VMware has what I like to call ‘enterprise pragmatism,’” Viarengo said. “The private cloud is not going away, so we’re going to help our customers there, and then as they move to the cloud, we’re going to give them the option to adopt the cloud at their own pace. With Tanzo, Aria, and the rest of the service suite through the cloud, we’ll meet them wherever they are.”
