Business leaders expect two things from IT: keep mission-critical applications available and high performing 24x7 and, if something does happen, recover to be back in business quickly and without losing any critical data so there is no impact on revenue stream. Of course, there is a gap between this de facto expectation from nontechnical business leaders and what current technology is actually capable of delivering. For mission-critical workloads, which are most often hosted on databases, organizations may choose to implement high availability (HA) technologies within the database to avoid downtime and data loss.
"Today, IT’s customers are more mobile and global than ever before and as such expect their applications and data to be available 24x7. Interruptions, whether planned or unplanned, can have a major impact to the bottom line of the business.

Las redes informáticas están diseñadas para facilitar el flujo de comunicación, no para impedirlo. Desafortunadamente, los paquetes de datos pueden ser manipulados de manera que parezcan normales, aunque contengan un exploit. Estas técnicas eluden las medidas de seguridad estándar y, en la mayoría de los casos, distribuyen una carga maliciosa sin ser detectada. A menudo, estas técnicas de evasión avanzadas (AETs) aprovechan propiedades de protocolos poco utilizadas, en combinaciones inesperadas y la mayoría de los dispositivos de seguridad de red no son capaces de detectarlas. Aunque muchos superan pruebas de la industria con altas calificaciones, estas se basan en la protección contra un número reducido de amenazas. Se desconoce el número exacto de AETs, pero se calcula que hay cientos de millones. Para protegerse, la seguridad de red debe incorporar algunas funciones fundamentales.
Many companies consider using cloud storage to reduce costs and the IT burden of storing data in the enterprise. However, simply calculating the annual cost of a SAN or NAS server versus the per GB cost of cloud storage does not produce an accurate view of cost savings, because cloud storage alone is not equal to all the functionality found in today’s enterprise-class storage solutions. Cloud-integrated Storage (CiS) delivers the benefits of cloud storage with the features and functionality that enterprises require, while still reducing the cost of storage. Using examples of real companies, this white paper will illustrate five different ways enterprise organizations can save money by transitioning from traditional hardware to Nasuni Cloud-integrated Storage for storing file data.
There are potentially tens of thousands of buyers who don’t know that they need your products or services. They are your passive, silent audience. And, if you want to grow quickly, that audience is absolutely vital. You can’t reach them using personas, content marketing, or retargeting – so how do you find buyers who’ve never even heard of you? This ebook explains how to reverse-engineer their digital footprints and follow the trail back to the owner.
NetApp® SnapManager® for Oracle (SMO) is designed to significantly simplify all these tasks and more. In this article, we examine how you can deploy SMO to simplify and even automate data protection, recovery, and cloning across both primary and secondary storage. Learn more today!

It is not so much a "how to" guide, but rather a "why to" explanation. Learn more today!
Companies have rapidly adopted server virtualization over the past few years, but there are big differences in their use of the technology. Most companies are able to reduce server hardware spending, but many don't realize an ongoing reduction in management costs.
Frustrated by the costs of maintain ever larger data centers-or building new ones-many companies are exploring virtualization. Virtualization lets your IT staff turn your data center into an internal cloud of computing resources controlled by a single virtual data center operating system (VDC-OS).
In an economic environment that is repeatedly heralding the message "do more with less" the efficiency of hypervisors are an oft-overlooked aspect of virtual infrastructure acquisition that has massive impact on total price.
Today's use of virtualization technology allows IT professionals to automatically manage the resources of the physical server to efficiently support multiple operating systems, each supporting different applications. This IDC Technology Assessment presents IDC's view of how virtualization technologies are impacting and will continue to impact operating environments and the operating environment market near- and long-term.
VMware virtualization enables customers to reduce their server TCO and quickly delivers signification ROI. This paper describes commonly used TCO models and looks at several case studies that apply TCO models to virtualization projects. Learn more.

Over the past few years, new IT infrastructure options for enterprise transactional applications have arisen thanks to numerous improvements in storage processing power and the robustness of networking protocols. SAN protocols are no longer the only option for IT storage administrations. VMware, Hyper-V, SQL, and even SAP and Oracle deployments have taken advantage of the benefits offered by NFS, and more recently SMB 3, network-attached storage (NAS) protocols. However, support for NAS protocols alone is not enough. EMC and Brocade understand that supporting enterprise applications requires delivering enterprise storage and networking capabilities to maximize resiliency and performance.
The cloud isn’t just for large companies with thousand of employees. In fact, some of the richest and most thrilling transformations can be seen in the mom and pop stores, the virtual start-ups. In most cases, it starts with that “moment of truth”-- a realization that something can be done better.
The “Moments of Truth” e-Book details four businesses that had an insight, and turned to the cloud for answers. You’ll read about:
A Nashville fried chicken company is changing lives through the power of smart technology and transformative employment
A virtual social media management business is truly living “the future of work”
A content-focused startup is setting a whole new standard for podcasts
A digital products studio is building a real community for its employees
This document will explain the behavior and benefit of implementing Diskeeper defragmentation software with intricate modern hardware technologies such as RAID, NAS and SANs. SANs, NAS devices, corporate servers, and even high end workstations and multimedia-centric desktops characteristically implement multiple physical disk drives in some form of fault tolerant disk striping (RAID).

Object-based storage (referred to as OBS throughout this document) platforms continue to perpetuate cloud and enterprise IT infrastructure. As businesses move toward petabyte-scale data storage, OBS solutions are turning out to be the right choice for balancing scale, complexity, and costs. By way of their core design principles, OBS platforms deliver unprecedented scale at reduced complexity and reduced costs over the long term. Early OBS platforms suffered from "necessity crisis," were too
cumbersome to deploy and, in some cases, caused a platform lock-in because of their proprietary access mechanisms. In spite of their from-the-ground-up design, a departure from how traditional SAN and NAS arrays are deployed and, more importantly, a lack of standard interfaces made it difficult for
IT organizations to deploy OBS solutions in the infrastructure. Thanks to Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift becoming de facto access interfaces, this situation has changed.
