YOUR CLOUD, YOUR WAY: Build Your Enterprise Cloud With Innovative Private Cloud Solutions

Companies must innovate in order to survive. Since 2000, 52% of the Fortune 500 have been acquired or have gone bankrupt. Only 12% of those that existed in 1955 exist today. In a marketplace that is competitive, unforgiving, and waits for no one, companies that don’t constantly redefine themselves based on customer needs and market dynamics simply cease to exist.

Critical Questions When Assessing Your E-commerce Platform

A purpose-built, cloud-based commerce platform is essential to maintaining a competitive eCommerce presence. Once you’ve reached the limitations of your current solution, it’s time to graduate to an updated system capable of growing with your business. Choosing a new eCommerce platform is a significant investment in your future requiring careful allocation of time and resources.

SD-WAN: Security, Application Experience and Operational Simplicity Drive Market Growth

SD-WAN at its core helps enterprises achieve dynamic alignment among business and IT strategy, application policy, and WAN configuration. In other words, it enables the WAN to provide the application experience (reliability, availability, performance), and application security demanded by business users, and the operational simplicity that IT and network admins yearn for in the current paradigm of rising IT complexity. We further explore these three key value drivers of SD-WAN adoption below:

With a multi-cloud approach, a business uses a combination of public cloud services from different providers and selects the most appropriate environment for both infrastructure and applications.

How HPE Gen10 Servers Guard Against Firmware Attacks

Modern businesses collect and analyze massive data volumes — a trend that is likely to continue in the foreseeable future. The global datasphere is projected to reach 175 zettabytes (ZB) by 2025,1 due in part to the push for digital transformation and the rise of IoT. To put that number in context, a zettabyte is 1 trillion gigabytes. As more businesses integrate digital technologies into their everyday operations, the demand for high-performing servers to process and protect that data will increase accordingly.

Combating Advanced Threats with Endpoint Security Intelligence

From custom malware to zero-day exploits, advanced security threats are exploding worldwide—and the sophistication of these attacks is higher than ever. Today’s cybercriminals are adept at finding victims to target via email or web-based threats, as well as exploiting vulnerabilities in the endpoints themselves. Large, coordinated, operationally sophisticated attacks are now executed across broad swaths of the Internet, bypassing traditional security mechanisms. And the number of malware strains just keeps growing.

Redefining Networks for Cloud, Analytics, Mobile, Social and Security

Much has been written about cloud, big data and analytics, mobile, social, and IT security as significant forces that are transforming information technology and business. Much less has been said about the impact of these forces on networking— or about the role that networks play when business initiatives are based on them. As these technologies move from future trend to mainstream, the network as the common, critical infrastructure component will get close to the breaking point.

How Security Solutions Enable Cloud Success

Cloud adoption is now mainstream, and all types of cloud services ranging from on-premise private cloud (adopted by 44% of organizations), to hosted private cloud (adopted by 34% of organizations) to the three types of public cloud are seeing growth in adoption. The key challenge is connecting the different cloud services into hybrid and multicloud environments and to put a comprehensive management, governance and security framework in place across the various clouds.

Disaggregation Necessary in a Complete Backup and DR Solution

Data is a vital part of an organization and business owners are finding ways to make their data more available and secure with every passing minute. Backup comes to mind talking about data protection but a complete data protection is a lot more than that.

There are a two main factors that play their part in making a backup reliable and efficient: disaggregation and disaster recovery. This article will highlight them and how they are useful for an enterprise.

Web Security: Essential Component of Threat-Centric Defense Strategy

Endpoint security and the Web security defenses protecting the endpoint are on the front lines in the battle against malware and targeted attacks attempting to gain access to corporate resources. Web security technologies are adapting to the growing use of cloud services and the explosion of mobile devices, which together have created a perimeter that is becoming more malleable every day. That digital fluidity is under attack by organized criminals in Eastern Europe, Russia, and China who are taking advantage of the growing complexity and strained security defenses.

Exponential Growth in AI Infrastructure Market

Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the theory and development of computer systems capable of performing tasks that usually require human intelligence. AI involves the study and synthesis of intelligent agents—in this case, a computer system. AI applications process large volumes of data, and they require powerful processing capabilities outside. AI infrastructure enables superior data throughput and storage capacity, as well as large data workloads.

Accelerate Your Business with High Performance Computing (HPC)

Your business has the talent, expertise and potential to achieve great results and your IT infrastructure’s computing power should never limit that. To grow your business beyond the ordinary and to instead drive innovation to new levels, you can’t rely on traditional data center infrastructure. High Performance computing (HPC) systems are being deployed across many areas of business at companies across the globe to handle demanding workloads, provide big data and analytics solutions, and maximize business growth.

Achieve Total Cost of Operation Benefits Using Cloud Computing

A core reason organizations adopt a cloud IT infrastructure is to save money. The traditional approach of analyzing Total Cost of Ownership no longer applies when you move to the cloud. Cloud services provide the opportunity for you to use only what you need and pay only for what you use. We refer to this new paradigm as the Total Cost of Operation. You can use Total Cost of Operation (TCO) analysis methodologies to compare the costs of owning a traditional data center with the costs of operating your environment using AWS Cloud services.

Server Security Lies Deep in Hardware

Replacing servers is often delayed. Confronted with competing business priorities, limited budgets and personnel, and a sense of comfort as current servers reliably hum along, delay is easy to rationalize. Yet, delays are not without risk and trade-offs. Cases in point are two circumstances that small and midsized enterprises (SMEs) should seriously consider and, in our opinion, initiate action now.
