Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises
seeking to become application-centric, with many modern
data centers now running a combination of cloud-native
applications based on microservices architectures alongside
applications. With application owners seeking publiccloud-
like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers,
IT teams are under pressure to deliver services and resolve application
issues quickly, while simultaneously reducing provisioning
time for new applications and lowering costs for application
Gartner, Inc. has positioned McAfee as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) for the tenth consecutive time. With the shift to cloud-based architectures, the role of IPS is changing. Get access to this valuable Gartner research, $1,995.00 USD value, compliments of McAfee.
Cloud computing vendors and colocation data centers make every effort to maximize the scalability, efficiency and agility of their data centers. As a result, more and more of them are looking into replacing older, transformer-based centralized power protection schemes with distributed architectures in which uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) reside in the white space (or data hall).
This white paper describes the advantages of positioning UPSs in the white space as well as the essential qualities to look for in a white space-ready UPS.
