Today, many businesses fall short in realizing the full potential of their virtualization and private cloud strategies. Rigid infrastructure and architectural complexity are key blockers that must be overcome.
This document is written for IT decision makers, architects, engineers, and application owners who
make architectural decisions for hybrid deployments. The architecture described in this document is for
large and medium-sized businesses that are considering hybrid cloud solutions. This document is also
useful for service providers that deliver hybrid cloud services to businesses.
Today Wi-Fi tends to be the primary network access method for many. This paper discusses key requirements to consider as you plan for a WLAN purchase. It will highlight top 10 features for a WLAN, help you decide on architectural choices and summarize how to use the RFP process to select a vendor.

Because WAN optimization sits at the intersection of applications, networking, and storage, its potential benefits goes well beyond what enterprises had realized in the past. In fact, WAN optimization has now evolved into an architectural design element that shapes the performance lifecycle of IT.
In this competitive whitepaper, Edison Group provides an independent, third-party perspective and evaluation of HP’s StoreOnce Backup System versus EMC Data Domain. Criteria considered included scalability (including capacity and performance), high availability, architectural approach, pricing, and licensing.
SOA is a set of architectural and design principles that are probably new to most iSeries people. SOA considers an enterprise as consisting of many processes and services. SOA comes with the expected set of acronyms and jargon, such as "loose coupling" and "granularity" and is typically implemented with Web Services.
As business users expand to newer types of applications, and grow older ones, their attempts to use RDBMS encounter the "Relational Wall," where RDBMS technology no longer provides the performance and functionality needed. This paper measures the wall, explains what model and architectural differences cause it, how to foresee it, and how to avoid it.
This analyst report written by Stan Schatt, VP & Research Director, Networking at ABI Research helps you decipher the WLAN security alphabet soup, understand architectural approaches to WLAN security, upcoming standards for roaming, load balancing and management frame encryption, and key security requirements that you should consider for you next WLAN deployment.
Quantum Cryptography is an emerging technology that may offer new forms of security protection. Relying on the laws of quantum mechanics, transmission is carried by a single particle that can only be measured one time, making encryption and decryption difficult to compromise. Businesses are evaluating architectural solutions using Quantum Cryptography to understand its potential benefits. Future implementations of the technology may soon make it more available for enterprise business.
This white paper describes the architecture of SAS Marketing Operations Management and various aspects of its deployment and security. The following areas are covered:
• High-level architecture overview
• Architectural components
• Deployment options
• Deployment best practices
This paper is intended for those involved in purchasing, selling and implementing SAS Marketing Operations Management, including system administrators and anyone seeking an
understanding of the solution’s architecture and security.
In today’s global economy, companies are increasingly distributed. That puts IT in a precarious position, especially when it comes to backup processes. A new architectural approach allows IT to project virtual servers and data to the edge, providing for local access and performance. Learn to take advantage of this new approach to recover faster, reduce risk, and save money.
As vendors abandon the UNIX market, IBM continues its commitment to AIX and POWER7 components on Power Systems. And with its recent architectural upgrades, it’s even redefining performance. Read the Clipper Group white paper and see how POWER7’s faster processors accelerate the delivery of applications and services, and improve the utilization of resources.
When it comes to game-changing infrastructure technologies, private clouds are leading the way toward new IT efficiencies and a simplified means of consumption. Building on their roots as virtualized data centers, private clouds are rapidly moving up the list of must-have technologies to become an architectural standard for IT organizations around the world.
When comparing the architecture for Ceph and SolidFire, it is clear that both are scale-out storage systems designed to use commodity hardware, and the strengths of each make them complementary solutions for datacenter design.
As IT demands mount, IT organizations simply no longer have the luxury of spending resources to verify every vendor promise. Systems just need to work, while delivering a future free from costly data migrations. As a response, IT vendors have begun to offer guarantees in performance, guarantees in data reduction rates, guarantees in data deduplication, or free upgrades. These programs, however, are often limited to a single storage or data protection product offering, typically with all-flash technology. Dell EMC solutions, powered by Intel® Xeon® processor goes one step further with a program that delivers a future-proof infrastructure promise that extends to its larger storage, hyperconverged, and data protection portfolio and provides support across both generational and architectural transitions.
