As businesses are driven to digital transformation by changing market forces and customer expectations, many are looking to new technologies, including new infrastructure environments, as enablers. As a result, we are seeing a near-universal appetite for hybrid outcomes as business functions are executed across multiple on-premises and external infrastructure environments in pursuit of agility, cost, performance and other business benefits. Hybrid IT has become a key strategic imperative for a large portion of enterprises, impacting their IT objectives and expectations, and likely leading to new engagements with service provides for help designing, building and operating hybrid environments.

Network performance and security are vital
elements of any business. Organisations are
increasingly adopting virtualisation and cloud
technologies to boost productivity, cost savings
and market reach.
With the added complexity of distributed
network architectures, full visibility is necessary
to ensure continued high performance and
security. Greater volumes of data, rapidlyevolving threats and stricter regulations have
forced organisations to deploy new categories
of security tools, e.g. Web Access Firewalls
(WAFs) or Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS).
Yet, simply adding more security tools may not
always be the most efficient solution.
Mountains of data promise valuable insights and innovation for businesses that rethink and redesign their system architectures. But companies that don’t re-architect might find themselves scrambling just to keep from being buried in the avalanche of data.
The problem is not just in storing raw data, though. For businesses to stay competitive, they need to quickly and cost-effectively access and process all that data for business insights, research, artificial intelligence (AI), and other uses. Both memory and storage are required to enable this level of processing, and companies struggle to balance high costs against limited capacities and performance constraints.
The challenge is even more daunting because different types of memory and storage are required for different workloads. Furthermore, multiple technologies might be used together to achieve the optimal tradeoff in cost versus performance.
Intel is addressing these challenges with new memory and storage technologies that emp
Real estate and facilities executives work across a broad agenda, from supporting business growth to improving building performance.

Digital transformation is a business enabler, one that also translates to an increase in the demand for greater storage capacity and performance. This increasing demand requires IT organizations to re-examine their data storage strategy as the growth in capacity doesn’t align with a shrinking IT budget. To support the growth of the business and remain competitive in a global digital market, CIOs are asked more than ever to “do more with less,” while improving performance and availability at the same time.
Even after decades of industry and technology advancements, there still is no universal, integrated storage solution that can reduce risk, enable profitability, eliminate complexity and seamlessly integrate into the way businesses operate and manage data at scale? To reach these goals, there are capabilities that are required to achieve the optimum results at the lowest cost. These capabilities include availability, reliability, performance, density, manageability and application ecosystem integration? This paper outlines a better way to think about storing data at scale—solving these problems not only today, but well into the future?
Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.
Infinidat has developed a storage platform that provides unique simplicity, efficiency, reliability, and extensibility that enhances the business value of large-scale OpenStack environments. The InfiniBox® platform is a pre-integrated solution that scales to multiple petabytes of effective capacity in a single 42U rack. The platform’s innovative combination of DRAM, flash, and capacity-optimized disk, delivers tuning-free, high performance for consolidated mixed workloads, including object/Swift, file/Manila, and block/Cinder. These factors combine to cut direct and indirect costs associated with large-scale OpenStack infrastructures, even versus “build-it-yourself” solutions. InfiniBox delivers seven nines (99.99999%) of availability without resorting to expensive replicas or slow erasure codes for data protection. Operations teams appreciate our delivery model designed to easily drop into workflows at all levels of the stack, including native Cinder integration, Ansible automation pl

Even with the greatest level of talent on your in-house legal team, you will at some point, need the services of external counsel. When an organization rates its outside law firms, selecting just the right data might be a challenge. Business leaders may not be lawyers, so it may be necessary to rely on the self-assessment of firms to determine the “health” of their programs.
But does it need to be that subjective? Hard data is an essential tool when it comes to performance evaluation. There are specific metrics organizations can use to evaluate law firm performance. While it may not be “all about the money,” these key metrics can provide insight into how your panel handles its work and the value of the results you receive.

This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in IT infrastructure and cloud featuring GigaOm analyst Mark Thiele and special guest from Packet, Jacob Smith. The discussion will focus on what can be done if a business has a need or desire to run application environments outside public cloud; and, in the age of public cloud adoption, what can companies do to remain competitive from an IT perspective.
Most companies aren’t professional data center or infrastructure builders, and they shouldn’t have to be. This is in fact a driver for cloud adoption. Price, Performance, Proximity, Pride and Politics are reasons why enterprises might need more control at times over their infrastructure.

“More than 70 percent of cyber attacks target small businesses," according to National Cyber Security Alliance estimates. That’s not surprising when you consider how many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) still rely on legacy AV tools despite their repeated failures to stop modern malware, ransomware, and zero-day attacks. Legacy AV is a lose-lose-lose proposition for SMBs. Attacks get through and cause damage. IT staff struggle to keep up with endless signature file updates from their AV vendors. End-users complain about sluggish system performance during scans and signature file updates. Fortunately, next-generation solutions are now available that protect endpoints with artificial intelligence (AI) rather than signatures. Ready to learn more?
