When most people think of denial of service (DoS) attacks, they think of the large pipe-saturating
distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks aimed at the network layer. However, attacks on website
or application availability are not just volumetric in nature. Many attacks are designed to cause
resource exhaustion somewhere in the application stack, the application servers, middleware,
or back-end database.

" For any business that wants to successfully compete in today’s digital economy, it is not a question of if but rather how much of their business will be done with cloud applications.
A cloud application is one with many endpoints including browsers, mobile devices,
and/or machines that are geographically distributed. The application is intensely transactional (high velocity reads and/or writes), always available, and instantaneously responsive no matter the number of users or machines using the application.

The idea of load balancing is well defined in the IT world: A network device accepts traffic on behalf ofa group of servers, and distributes that traffic according to load balancing algorithms and the availabilityof the services that the servers provide. From network administrators to server administrators to applicationdevelopers, this is a generally well understood concept.
Virtualization is now mainstream. Enterprises continue to heavily invest in virtualization projects and while short term hardware and cost saving benefits are being achieved, few enterprises achieve anywhere close to the full potential of virtualization as they struggle with new problems like assuring performance and availability, preventing VM sprawl, and maximizing resource utilization

Pervasive, end-to-end data protection
End-to-end professional services
Applications are the engines that drive today’s digital businesses. When the infrastructure that powers those applications is difficult to administer, or fails, businesses and their IT organizations are severely impacted. Traditionally, IT assumed much of the responsibility to ensure availability and performance. In the digital era, however, the industry needs to evolve and reset the requirements on vendors.
Businesses in every sector are increasingly reliant on applications to handle everything from
back-end operations to the delivery of new products, services, and customer experiences.
That is why infrastructure system availability and the elimination of unplanned downtime
are more important than ever before. Recent research has shown that the average cost of an
hour of downtime is about half-a-million dollars,1
and this will only increase with the continued
digitization of industries.
"This research by Nimble Storage, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company, outlines the top five causes of application delays. The report analyzes more than 12,000 anonymized cases of downtime and slow performance. Read this report and find out:
Top 5 causes of downtime and poor performance across the infrastructure stack
How machine learning and predictive analytics can prevent issues
Steps you can take to boost performance and availability"
Small and midsized businesses (SMBs) face many challenges as they adapt to today’s new style of doing business. Shifting government regulations, threats to network security, requirements for 24x7 application availability and the demands for new methods to work with customers, suppliers and employees require ongoing investments in IT. These issues impact SMBs even harder because of budget constraints and limited IT resources. SMB’s who learn how to efficiently utilize IT assets and increase IT productivity will be successful.

focus on business priorities instead of mundane maintenance.
Virtualization has transformed the data center over the past decade. IT departments use virtualization to consolidate multiple server workloads onto a smaller number of more powerful servers. They use virtualization to scale existing applications by
adding more virtual machines to support them, and they deploy new applications without having to purchase additional servers to do so. They achieve greater resource utilization by balancing workloads across a large pool of servers in real time—and they respond more quickly to changes in workload or server availability by moving virtual machines between physical servers. Virtualized environments support private clouds on which application engineers can now provision their own virtual servers and networks in environments that expand and contract on demand.
