On-demand computing is apparently in demand, at least in the eyes of data integration specialist Informatica Corp. The Switzerland of data integration, as some have called it, just announced availability of its first on-demand offering, which is specifically designed to handle data from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) stalwart, Salesforce.com.
Virtualization offers the promise of simplifying your IT infrastructure from the desktop to the data center. But can your virtual environment maintain the level of availability you need to keep your business running or to recover from a disaster?
As a growing law firm, Sills Cummis found itself presented with several classic IT challenges. It had to contend with server proliferation within its data center, implement a cost-effective disaster recovery system, and ensure high availability of key applications and services for its attorneys. Through its purchase of the VMware Infrastructure 3 suite, Sills Cummis was able to tackle all of these problems.
In this case study, We look at Priceline.com, one of the Internets biggest winners, that ended up redefining how people would book travel reservations. Learn how HP helped priceline accommodate year over data growth, constant availability and more.
This white paper reviews the impact of server virtualization on the data center and describes a simpler way to build more secure and automated networks that fully meet the stringent performance, availability, and agility demands of data centers.

ESG Lab Validation Report - Reducing Storage Capacity and Costs without Compromise. Even with the plethora of storage efficiency technologies-such as deduplication and thin provisioning-available in the market today, users have not been able to stem the growth. This ESG Lab report looks at how IBM Real-time Compression can be used to reduce the cost of storing primary file data without impacting performance. The results of hands-on testing of IBM Real-time Compression Appliances performed by ESG at an IBM facility is used to demonstrate the value of non-disruptive deployment, loss-less capacity savings, real-time performance, and non-stop high availability.
What’s needed today is storage that’s flexible enough to be used for both legacy IT and virtual systems environments and repurposed as new needs arise. Storage must be quickly expandable and must enable data and applications to be easily and securely migrated, with workloads automatically rebalanced. Applications need to be online 24 x 7, so high availability is paramount. Management of the entire storage pool, as well as coordination with virtualized servers and networking, must be streamlined and simplified. This Tech Dossier reveals how HP Converged Storage can meet your organizations storage requirements.
Leading organizations don’t think of data protection in traditional back-office terms—and that’s no accident. They think and act like service providers, and in doing so transform data protection operations from mere cost centers to business enablers. Traditional data protection architectures can’t meet today’s challenges of massive growth, application performance, and data availability. And they aren't designed for services-oriented business models.
You are being buried by data. Multimedia including videos, audio and photos. Unstructured data in presentations, documents and social media feeds. Even the voicemails and databases that used to be the primary residents of your storage system are growing beyond your ability to manage them effectively. How can you keep it all under control without buying an endless stream of disk and storage devices?
Experts from EMC and other leading storage manufacturers discuss the very latest trends in storage solutions and how an effective application of storage strategy can help tame the information beast and keep performance and availability issues at bay.
Attendees will learn:
- What are the hidden drivers in storage growth
- How businesses of all sizes can benefit from a tiered storage strategy
- Why virtualization is penetrating every level of IT
- What role SSD and flash will play in every storage environment
- What to do now to improve storage utilization and save costs

A common misconception about hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is that because data services are software-defined, the hardware doesn’t matter. It’s easy to see why—the software driving HCI solutions such as the Dell EMC XC Series (in this case, Nutanix software) is exceptional. It efficiently manages data and communications across a cluster of nodes and storage tiers, keeping the cluster and virtual machines (VMs) up and running, delivering optimal performance and availability. Software-defined infrastructure is changing the way data services are delivered, making companies more efficient and agile, and reducing costs.
