Learn how Small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) that are leveraging Hybrid Cloud are seeing several critical benefits. Based on new Aberdeen research, these gains and benefits are even more vital for today’s organizations. With hybrid cloud, your SMB can reduce downtime, cost and risk while increasing flexibility and scalability.
This IDC study provides an evaluation of 10 vendors that sell all-flash arrays (AFAs) for dense mixed
enterprise workload consolidation that includes at least some mission-critical applications.
"All-flash arrays are dominating primary storage spend in the enterprise, driving over 80% of that
revenue in 2017," said Eric Burgener, research director, Storage. "Today's leading AFAs offer all the
performance, capacity scalability, enterprise-class functionality, and datacenter integration capabilities
needed to support dense mixed enterprise workload consolidation. More and more IT shops are
recognizing this and committing to 'all flash for primary storage' strategies."
This paper explores the merits of agile integration architecture--a container-based, decentralized, and microservices-aligned approach for integration solutions that meets the demands of agility, scalability, and resilience required by digital transformation.

If you are considering the right deployment model for your contact center, economic guidelines can help you choose the solution that is best for your company. Cloud, on-premises or hybrid.
Just a few years ago, businesses were still unsure of the viability of moving their contact centers and other critical enterprise systems to the cloud. Since then, with the decrease of cloud costs, and the corresponding increase in security and, the viability and total cost of ownership of cloud deployments are attracting more and more companies.
This eBook will cover how different criteria can affect a choice between a cloud or on-premises contact center, including:
• The size of your contact center, and business requirements such as customer journey management
• The location and quantity of contact centers being managed
• The need for scalability, speed of deployment, and maintenance requirements
Finding the right IT service provider is not as simple as it may seem. Choosing a service provider based exclusively on low price may be good for your bottom line, but may fall short on delivering the right level of IT expertise and resource scalability for long-term advantage.

As applications and services become more central to business strategy, and as distributed methodologies like agile and DevOps change the way teams operate, it is critical for IT leaders to find a way to integrate their backend systems, legacy systems, and teams in an agile, adaptable way. This e-book details an architecture called agile integration, consisting of three technology pillars—distributed integration, containers, and APIs—to deliver flexibility, scalability, and reusability.

The competitive advantages and value of BDA are now widely acknowledged and have led to the shifting of focus at many firms from “if and when” to “where and how.” With BDA applications requiring more from IT infrastructures and lines of business demanding higher-quality insights in less time, choosing the right infrastructure platform for Big Data applications represents a core component of maximizing value. This IDC study considered the experiences of firms using Cisco UCS as an infrastructure platform for their BDA applications. The study found that Cisco UCS contributed to the strong value the firms are achieving with their business operations through scalability, performance, time to market, and cost effectiveness. As a result, these firms directly attributed business benefits to the manner in which Cisco UCS is deployed in the infrastructure.
The scalability of its EP-LAN lets MMC Corp seize new opportunities without adding infrastructure. For example, Scales and Trusler are looking at virtual desktops or virtual desktop image [VDI] files for some offices and even job sites. “We’ll probably have to scale some bandwidth internally for that,” Trusler notes, “but if we do the VDI internally or we do it with an external third party, it doesn’t really matter… because we can get them on that EP-LAN network and we can get the bandwidth that we need… quickly.”
EP-LAN is scalable. In most cases, adding additional services at a specific customer location can easily be turned up by Spectrum Enterprise remotely. Choosing a fiber EP-LAN over MPLS not only met the challenge to connect MMC Corp locations: it created an IT platform that continues to scale to support rapid expansion and innovation.
In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
Very little data is available on how effectively enterprises are managing private cloud deployments in the real world. Are they doing so efficiently, or are they facing challenges in areas such as performance, TCO and capacity? Hewlett Packard Enterprise commissioned 451 Research to explore these issues through a survey of IT decision-makers and data from the Cloud Price Index.
Enterprises are looking to innovations like big data, cloud-based services and mobile apps to improve decision making and accelerate business results. But legacy IT implementations—independent compute, storage and networking platforms, veneered with a hypervisor— often can’t deliver on the increased agility, scalability and price performance demands of this new era of IT.

Think of a wildfire that quickly spreads as it increases in speed and power. That is what is happening today as data growth increases the volume and management complexity of storage, backup and recovery. Now think of trying to stop that fire with a garden hose. Your traditional backup and recovery process is equally under-equipped to manage and facilitate operations that need more speed, efficiency, scalability and reliability to handle today’s 24/7, always-on environment. Here we examine the benefits of moving from a solution comprised of multiple point products to a holistic data protection platform designed to serve today’s enterprise.
Businesses using outdated servers for email, database, and file and print workloads stand to benefit greatly by replacing them. The Dell PowerEdge VRTX with two Dell PwerEdge M630 blase servers, both powered by the Intel Xeon processor E5-2650 v3, can provide the performance, scalability, and high availability your business needs to keep running and meet increased demand.
Amazon Redshift Spectrum—a single service that can be used in conjunction with other Amazon services and products, as well as external tools—is revolutionizing the way data is stored and queried, allowing for more complex analyses and better decision making.
Spectrum allows users to query very large datasets on S3 without having to load them into Amazon Redshift. This helps address the Scalability Dilemma—with Spectrum, data storage can keep growing on S3 and still be processed. By utilizing its own compute power and memory, Spectrum handles the hard work that would normally be done by Amazon Redshift. With this service, users can now scale to accommodate larger amounts of data than the cluster would have been capable of processing with its own resources.
Organizations looking to implement desktop and app virtualization traditionally play a guessing game where storage is concerned. When considering local and physical storage, determining what would be necessary for the virtualized world is difficult and can be overwhelming. This is especially true when determining how virtualizing desktops will impact the storage architecture. Organizations risk over sizing their environment thereby wasting CapEx, or under-sizing and potentially ruining the user experience. Software-defined storage solutions, such as VMware Virtual SAN, provide simplified solutions with high performance data stores that offer fine-grained scalability with linearly-predictable performance as demand grows. Dell’s validated and certified desktop virtualization solutions incorporate vSphere and Virtual SAN, and provide a complete end-to-end solution that allows companies to grow and expand without large capital investments in SAN hardware.
