So far, most data centers have virtualized their least-critical workloads as a matter of basic cost containment. Virtualizing mission-critical applications is still forthcoming for the majority,though, largely due to infrastructural concerns. Complicating matters is the shift in IT purchasing decisions from IT to business management. Integrated Computing Platforms (ICPs), private cloud computing, and public cloud services all leverage virtualization to achieve a number of IT and business goals, including increased ROI, reduced OpEx, and business process improvement. Now more than ever, it makes sense to explore the benefits of ICPs. Find expert data center considerations here.

With the recent increase in enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the tightening of anti-corruption legislation in Europe and other regions, knowledge of bribery rules and regulations has never been more critical. In the US alone, the total fines for FCPA violations levied by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 2013 exceeded $720 million1. Fortunately, effective training and internal communication have been identified as strategies to mitigate your compliance risk. Here are five things you need to know about anti-bribery enforcement trends.

If your company is using cloud computing services today, it’s highly likely you are already in a hybrid cloud configuration. The key question is whether you are actively managing this reality. In January 2014, HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise hybrid cloud environments and how they are being managed. Forrester developed a hypothesis that tested the assertion that enterprise IT operations teams struggle to recognize and manage this hybrid state — a hypothesis that was proven out.

When a company sells services to a consumer audience primarily through a Web user interface (UI), that Web UI had better be online and available, all the time, especially if you are an airline. Such is the real-world scenario that faces Chris Skretowski, Linux Specialist at Devon, United Kingdom-based Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline. Despite being a relatively small IT function, it powers a regional airline with over 1,700 employees and 55 aircraft, and the company has big ambitions, driven top down by a new CEO who believes that technology adoption and use can make a real difference in the company's bottom line. Having a board that is supportive of IT as a strategic business driver means there is lots of open air ahead for Skretowski, who is responsible for all the Linux infrastructure that front ends the company's missioncritical Web presence. Flybe was one of the 21 companies that were interviewed for quantitative results on their operations as part of an IDC ROI analys

As powerful as Microsoft Lync is, buyers should understand it is not a complete UC solution, and use of strategic partners is necessary. Voice and video are the most difficult services to provision correctly as workers require a high-quality, real-time experience. Anything short of that can remove many of the ROI benefits the company was hoping to realize. As such, companies deploying Lync should choose the best possible voice and video partner for Lync to simplify deployments and optimize user experience. Read why Polycom is a top strategic partner for Microsoft Lync for mission-critical voice and video services.

NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate. In this lab evaluation, NetApp commissioned Demartek to evaluate the effectiveness of Flash Pool with different types and numbers of hard disk drives using an online transaction processing (OLTP) database workload, and to evaluate the performance of Flash Pool in a clustered Data ONTAP environment during a cluster storage node failover scenario. In the report, you’ll dis cover how Demartek test engineers documented a 283% gain in IOPS and a reduction in latency by a factor of 66x after incorporating NetApp Flash Pool technology.

Every ten to fifteen years, the types of workloads servers host swiftly shift. This happened with the first single-mission mainframes and today, as disruptive technologies appear in the form of big data, cloud, mobility and security. When such a shift occurs, legacy servers rapidly become obsolete, dragging down enterprise productivity and agility. Fortunately, each new server shift also brings its own suite of enabling technologies, which deliver new economies of scale and entire new computational approaches. In this interview, long-time IT technologist Mel Beckman talks to HP Server CTO for ISS Americas Tim Golden about his take on the latest server shift, innovative enabling technologies such as software-defined everything, and the benefit of a unified management architecture. Tim discusses key new compute technologies such as HP Moonshot, HP BladeSystem, HP OneView and HP Apollo, as well as the superiority of open standards over proprietary architectures for scalable, cost-effect

Storing data in the cloud using a Whitewater™ cloud storage gateway from Riverbed Technology overcomes what is becoming a serious challenge for IT departments: how to manage the vast, and ever-growing, amount of data that must be protected. Whitewater eliminates concerns about data security, data transmission speeds over the Internet, and data availability, while providing great flexibility and a favorable return on investment. Moving data to the cloud replaces the high costs of tape and disk storage systems with a pay-as-you-go cloud storage tier. This paper makes the business case for cloud storage, outlining where capital and operational costs can be eliminated or avoided by using the cloud for backup and archive storage.

HP, a $120 billion company with five major business lines and an employee base of more than 300,000 people, faces many of the same IT challenges as other global enterprises at hyperscale: it must accommodate ever-increasing demands for business services without allowing its IT costs to spiral out of control. So the company embraced a solution from its own hardware portfolio: HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage, modern Tier-1 storage for mission-critical IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) and cloud environments. And the benefits of implementing this storage solution have been substantial, including increased storage capacity and density, as well as more agile, responsive IT services that better meet HP’s business needs.

Server systems are, by definition, more important than individual endpoints. They must provide services to hundred, or even thousands, of endpoints and, naturally, must be secure. Traditional anti-virus (AV) solutions can provide protection for servers. However, constantly running AV processes, along with potentially frequent signature updates, can consume resources that could otherwise be used to provide application services to users. Read this evaluation by Tolly, commissioned by Lumension, as the dive into the impact on server resources of the alternative application control solution compared with traditional AV solutions from Microsoft Corp, Symantec Corp, and Trend Micro, Inc.

In addition to high reliability and availability, enterprise mission critical applications, data centers operating 24x7, and data analysis platforms all demand powerful data processing capabilities and stability. The NEC PCIe SSD Appliance for Microsoft® SQL Server® is a best-practice reference architecture for such demanding workloads. It comprises an Express 5800 Scalable Enterprise Server Series with Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family CPUs, high-performance HGST FlashMAX II PCIe server-mounted flash storage, and Microsoft® SQL Server® 2014. When compared with the previous reference architecture based on a server with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family CPUs, benchmark testing demonstrated a performance improvement of up to 173% in logical scan rate in a data warehouse environment. The testing also demonstrated consistently fast and stable performance in online transaction processing (OLTP) that could potentially be encountered.

To accomplish this mission, you need an infrastructure platform that can be highly optimized for today’s and tomorrow’s virtualized workloads to provide operational simplicity that allows you to move at the speed of business. Unfortunately, a traditional infrastructure won’t get you there. A siloed environment requires too many tools and manual processes, which creates unnecessary complexity. That complexity, in turn, causes downtime, slows service delivery, and drains your IT staff productivity.
