Office 365 has eclipsed all other cloud applications to emerge as the most widely used enterprise cloud service by user count. It’s easy to understand why: With Office 365, organizations no longer have to pay for hardware or resources to manage software in their own data centers, and their users always have the latest versions of applications. But Office 365 comes with significant security concerns, especially as organizations store more and more sensitive and business-critical data there. One study reports that virtually every organization experiences at least one cloud-based threat each month — and the average has soared to nearly 6 incidents every week. What can organizations do to protect their Office 365 environments? Read the white paper to learn.
Technology trends like telecommuting, BYOD, VoIP and SaaS adoption bring new challenges to the underlying network infrastructure that connects branch offices and datacenters. This guide explains how to tackle the challenges faced by the internet-centric enterprise by intelligently monitoring your WAN, LAN, Wi-Fi and SaaS applications through a combination of Enterprise and Endpoint Agents.
Mobile is undoubtedly changing both our personal and professional lives. Customer service organizations should decide on a strategy to bridge the gap between mobile behavior and customer service. This requires a strategic review of value drivers, combined with a tactical search for relevant use cases.
Don’t fall in the “we need an app for everything” trap — some users need big screens, some users don’t. Some need a rich experience, others just need basic functions. Your strategy must take all of these dynamics into consideration.
The ongoing success of 7ticks depends on having an IT infrastructure that adapts and scales to unforgiving reliability, performance, and transparency requirements. To support the torrid growth of data, 7ticks needed to expand the IP/MPLS network connecting its data centers to 40 Gbps—and have an immediate path to 100 Gbps and beyond. Within its data centers, 7ticks needed network and security solutions that would keep pace—and would simplify service management and support automation.
“Our biggest challenge is performance at scale,” says Scott Caudell, founder of the 7ticks business and vice president of IT infrastructure at Interactive Data. “IT is our business. The 7ticks infrastructure helps customers get a lower time to market and faster execution speeds at a cost that’s sustainable for their businesses.”
The bank wanted to modernize its global data center core and edge networks to move to the next stage of its private cloud journey. The bank has long recognized the advantages of server virtualization, and it wanted to move more aggressively to a software-defined data center. The bank was virtualizing all services, including compute, storage, and network, to gain greater business flexibility and deliver cost savings. But first, it needed an elastic, flexible, and production ready network to connect its data centers.
The bank wanted a dynamically scalable network to interconnect its data centers in Europe, Asia, and North America, so that it could move toward a fully automated, self provisioned cloud. The global network needed to deliver performance at scale for the company’s highly virtualized resources, while also supporting integration of legacy assets into its software-defined data centers.
In today’s technology-driven world, a financial services organization’s ability to evolve the business quickly depends on the network. MetaFabric architecture, which is the foundation of Juniper’s unique end-to-end data center networking solution, helps financial services firms respond confidently to whatever happens in the market.
With an open, simple, and smart network in place, organizations can adapt quickly and seamlessly to changing requirements while eliminating the disruptions of forced upgrades and unnecessary purchases that come with vendor lock-in. Most importantly, the MetaFabric architecture helps companies stay at the forefront of innovation, keeping them one step ahead of the competition.

Today, data is big, fast, varied and constantly changing. As a result, organizations are managing hundreds of systems and petabytes of data. However, many organizations are unable to get the most value from their data because they’re using RDBMS to solve problems they weren’t designed to fix.
Why change? In this white paper, we dive into the details of why relational databases are ill-suited to handle the massive volumes of disparate, varied, and changing data that organizations have in their data centers. It is for this reason that leading organizations are going beyond relational to embrace new kinds of databases. And when they do, the results can be dramatic

While just about everyone is writing about how IT and the businesses it serves need to be transformed, the actual industry answers to both digital and IT transformation remain unclear at best. Are transformational initiatives all about analytics and big data? Or are they about the move to cloud in all its varieties? Support for mobile? More agile ways of working and developing software? Or are they actually all about crafting teams to promote more proactive dialog between the business and IT?
The truth is, of course, digital and IT transformation depend on all of the above and more. They also depend on a resilient infrastructure that’s easily adapted to changing business priorities without requiring long hours spent on maintenance, updates, and addressing problems of service availability. But making all this work clearly and cohesively is far beyond the purview of almost any solution today—whether from a software management perspective or from a hardware infrastructure perspective.
The Internet boom of the late 90s and early 2000s launched a mass migration of enterprises seeking the benefits of IT outsourcing. The emergence of virtualized infrastructure and cloud computing created a new business landscape of opportunities along with escalating challenges in capacity and complexity.
In every industry, IT professionals are watching their roles and objectives evolve rapidly. The world is now digital and data is at the core of how enterprises, governments and individuals manage their core functions. Now, more than ever, CIOs and CTOs are challenged to build sustainable IT strategies against a constantly changing backdrop. Enterprises are quickly realizing that the resources required are exceeding their in-house capabilities. So, who are they trusting with these most valued assets? Data center providers. Learn how IT strategies are evolving and the role data centers play in those strategies.

This white paper provides an in-depth look at key considerations to keep in mind when selecting a data center provider in Chicago. From connectivity to compliance to customer service, these 7 key considerations offer a checklist for evaluating potential data center providers.
According to the 2016 Enterprise IT Spending Benchmarks, compiled by 451 Research, North America will exceed $1 trillion in IT spending by 2017. Businesses of all sizes are expected to move to a hybrid IT approach. When choosing a hybrid approach, you need both on-site and cloud resources that are reliable and well maintained. The easiest way to assure this is by streamlining your data center solutions through a single, fully integrated service provider.
As businesses and agencies face increasingly complex security requirements, it makes less and less sense for these organizations to invest resources in the operation and management of their own data centers. Enterprises are leaving the data center business, opting instead to seek a partner for their data center, colocation and cloud needs.
As data consumption continues to grow and the expansion of the Internet of Things drives increased demand for data center storage, providers are facing a unique challenge. How can a facility meet the needs of customers today while keeping pace with how those needs will grow in the future?
