The Secure Data Center is a place in the network (PIN) where a company centralizes data and performs services for business. Data centers contain hundreds to thousands of physical and virtual servers that are segmented by applications, zones, and other methods. This guide addresses data center business flows and the security used to defend them. The Secure Data Center is one of the six places in the network within SAFE. SAFE is a holistic approach in which Secure PINs model the physical infrastructure and Secure Domains represent the operational aspects of a network.

In questo rapporto di analisi, IDC prende in esame le sfide che i clienti sono chiamati ad affrontaree in termini di bilanciamento degli investimenti nelle infrastrutture esistenti, nel miglioramento dell'efficienza e nella modernizzazione dei data center, adottando tecnologie innovative e le più recenti tecniche di deployment per ottimizzare la produttività degli sviluppatori e l'agilità operativa e contenere i costi della gestione del ciclo di vita. IDC approfondisce le alternative a disposizione dei clienti per centrare questi obiettivi, puntando su infrastrutture in grado di supportare i carichi di lavoro esistenti e quelli di prossima generazione e sul ruolo della standardizzazione e modernizzazione per l'ottimizzazione operativa.
Comdata Group is one of the world's largest business process outsourcing (BPO) providers. It operates hundreds of call-centers around the globe, with tens of thousands of employees offering, a variety of services, including sales and customer service.
In a competitive BPO market, Comdata was looking for ways to increase the productivity and efficiency of its agents. It looked for a unified solution that would successfully engage employees, drive higher accountability and better focus them on their performance.
Using Gameffective's platform, Comdata deployed gamified, real-time performance management. This process provides employees with the ability and motivation to self-track their performance against goals and benchmarks, and offers just-in-time coaching based on their needs. The results were impressive: 12% increase in sales per hour, and significant reductions in both new-hire learning curves and in ongoing training time.

Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF).
Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way
to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and
potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.
Ensuring the reliability and efficiency of your data center operations requires a strategic partner that is qualified to minimize energy usage, reduce costs, and optimize space utilization, helping you meet critical business initiatives.
Windows Server 2012 represents a paradigm shift from the traditional client/server model to a new cloud-based infrastructure. Is your business ready? Download this whitepaper to learn the 7 key questions you need to answer now
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.

Edison has followed the development and use of Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) over the past five years. Cisco ACI delivers an intent-based networking framework to enable agility in the datacenter. It captures higher-level business and user intent in the form of a policy and translates this intent into the network constructs necessary to dynamically provision the network, security, and infrastructure services.

The most significant IT transformation of this century is the rapid adoption of cloud-based applications. Most organizations are now dependent on a number of SaaS and IaaS platforms to deliver customer satisfaction and empower employee productivity. IT teams are responsible for delivering a high quality user experience for cloud applications while they struggle to manage a secure environment with advanced persistent threats. The WAN is the fabric to connect and control access between remote users and cloud-based applications. The WAN fabric needs to identify application type, location, apply prioritization and route traffic across the appropriate (multiple) WAN links to deliver on user experience. Different types of users/devices connecting to the cloud (via the Internet) means security policies must be enforced at branch, data center and in the cloud.
The new Multicloud Storage for Dummies consists of five short chapters that explore the following:

"Managing infrastructure has always brought with it frustration, headaches and wasted time. That’s because IT professionals have to spend their days, nights and weekends dealing with problems that are
disruptive to their applications and organization and manually tune their infrastructure. And, the challenges increase as the number of applications and reliance on infrastructure continues to grow.
Luckily, there is a better way. HPE InfoSight is artificial intelligence (AI) that predicts and prevents problems across the infrastructure stack and ensures optimal performance and efficient resource use.
"Principled Technologies executed four typical deployment and management scenarios using both HPE Synergy and Cisco UCS.
They found that HPE Synergy saved 71.5 minutes and 86 steps, and used four fewer tools compared to Cisco UCS. In a hypothetical 200-node datacenter, that’s a total of 9 work weeks, or just over 2 months’ time savings on routine tasks."
