Empowering 21st Century learning and teaching is a core value of
California’s Moreno Valley Unified School District (MVUSD), and its
Information Systems Technology Department believes delivering
on this mission requires technology to be seamlessly integrated
with the educational process.
Business expectations and demands on the data center are increasing and the impact on today’s data centers is staggering.
Organisations that can move quickly to leverage these new opportunities will find themselves in an advantageous position relative to their competitors. But time is NOT on your side! If your IT team often feel that they’re always in catch-up mode because it is difficult to quantify IT contributions, it is time to understand the benefit of hyperconverged infrastructure.

• Provide the resilience, scalability and performance to run all your applications without compromise.
• Design the data center as a fluid resource that can immediately adapt to the evolving needs of the business.
• Enable agility with scale-out architecture that eliminates the need to rip and replace for seamless growth and scale.
"Today, enormous amounts of data are being created from a variety of sources, such as applications, new mobile devices, big data analytics, and the cloud. This is changing the speed with which business gets conducted and the scale in which it occurs. Moreover, the digital explosion shows no sign of slowing and IDC expects the amount of data being stored to grow in excess of 50% per year over the next few years.
Discover how flash technology is being deployed to improve performance and efficiency for these demanding environments. Access this IDC whitepaper to learn more about the role of flash technology and the importance of flash solutions that are designed specifically for the enterprise."
"Today’s data centers are being asked to do more at less expense and with little or no disruption to company operations. They’re also expected to run 24x7, handle numerous new application deployments and manage explosive data growth. Data storage limitations can make it difficult to meet these stringent demands.
Faced with these challenges, CIOs are discovering that the “rip and replace” disruptive migration method of improving storage capacity and IO performance no longer works. Access this white paper to discover a new version of NetApps storage operating environment. Find out how this software update eliminates many of the problems associated with typical monolithic or legacy storage systems."

For organizations with disaster recovery services in place, the challenge often lies in supporting the ongoing maintenance and
re-evaluating the initial investment versus newer offerings as their environment continues to expand, or leases expire.
Fortunately, the landscape of disaster recovery solutions is shifting to accommodate changing IT needs. VMware vCloud® Air™ Disaster Recovery provides simple, affordable, automated processes for replicating and recovering critical applications and data — at a fraction of the cost of duplicating infrastructure or maintaining
additional data centers. Organizations can afford to scale their efforts as needed, with flexible terms and resource options.
In the current landscape of modern data centers, IT professionals are stretched too thin. Triage situations are the norm and tend to reduce the time spent on strategic business objectives. This paper offers a solution to this IT dilemma, outlining the ways to achieve a storage infrastructure that enables greater performance and capacity.
Solid state storage is increasingly deployed in all sizes of
datacenters, from the small and medium business to the
large enterprise. It comes in many forms including
hybrid arrays, direct attached drives, PCIe flash and
accelerators that fit somewhere in between servers and
storage. With the price of flash continuing to drop,
hybrid storage is becoming more compelling to the small
and medium business for critical computing applications
such as databases and day-to-day operational
In this tech brief, learn how Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage is lowering costs and increasing speed for backup and recovery applications. Wasabi is transforming cloud storage with a radical combination of speed, affordability and security. It offers backup and recovery platforms an extremely cost-effective solution that at the same time improves performance. Eliminating the complex tiers and pricing structures you find with traditional cloud storage options, Wasabi is 80% less than and 6x faster than Amazon S3 and built to be simple and flexible. It works with any Amazon S3 backup and recovery platform or utility. Cloud storage has become a compelling alternative to physical media or secondary data centers for data protection and Wasabi takes it to the next level. Download the Wasabi tech brief to learn more.
Small server rooms and branch offices are typically unorganized, unsecure, hot, unmonitored, and space constrained. These conditions can lead to system downtime or, at the very least, lead to “close calls” that get management’s attention. Practical experience with these problems reveals a short list of effective methods to improve the availability of IT operations within small server rooms and branch offices. This paper discusses making realistic improvements to power, cooling, racks, physical security, monitoring, and lighting. The focus of
this paper is on small server rooms and branch offices with up to 10kW of IT load.
Oracle Private Cloud Appliance is a converged infrastructure system designed for rapid and simple deployment of private cloud at an industry-leading price point. Whether customers are running Linux, Microsoft Windows or Oracle Solaris applications, Oracle Private Cloud Appliance supports consolidation for a wide range of mixed workloads in medium-to-large sized data centers.
High-performance, low-latency Oracle Fabric Interconnect and Oracle SDN allow automated configuration of the server and storage networks. The embedded controller software automates the installation, configuration, and management of all infrastructure components at the push of a button. Customers need to enter only basic configuration parameters and create virtual machines (VMs) manually or by using Oracle VM Templates to get a full application up and running in a few hours. With Oracle Enterprise Manager, the Oracle Private Cloud Appliance is transformed into a powerful private cloud infrastructure that integrates

Data Center Automation enables you to manage change processes, ensure configuration compliance and dynamically provision servers and applications based on business need. By controlling complexity and automating processes in the data center, your data center becomes more adaptive and agile. Effective Data Center Automation lets you leverage virtualization, manage capacity, and reduce costs and also helps reduce energy usage and waste.
With digital transformation reshaping the modern enterprise, applications represent a new class of assets and an important source of differentiation. The ever-more-competitive digital economy requires that your applications be delivered with unprecedented speed, scale, and agility, which is why more and more organizations are turning to the cloud.
This explosive growth of apps hosted in the cloud creates a world of opportunities—and a whole new set of challenges for organizations that must now deploy and manage a vast portfolio of applications in multi-cloud environments. Automation and orchestration systems can help streamline and standardize IT processes across traditional data centers, private clouds, and public clouds. But with rapid innovation come concerns about security and delivering a consistent experience across environments.
With the rate of cloud spending predicted to outpace overall IT spending six to one over the next few years, organizations are rightly concerned about ensuring that applications in the cloud enjoy the same level of security as apps deployed in data centers. Using the public cloud does alter your attack surface area—and leveraging multiple public and private clouds (aka multi-cloud) does so even more. Some threats get bigger, some get smaller. Some even go away, or at least drift out of your control, while new threats should move front and center in your security thinking.
Measurable performance is a key factor when selecting an Application Delivery Controller(ADC) solution for modern data centers. In this report, Tolly evaluates several Citrix NetScaler ADC models vs. that of comparable products.
The IBM Data Center Study found that only 21% of data centers are highly efficient. The study evaluated efficiency in servers, storage, networking, facility and data center operations to determine the best practices of the most efficient data centers.
