Modern hybrid data centers, which embrace physical, virtual, and cloud servers, require a new security mindset. The biggest challenges faced by IT in this type of environment is workload discovery, comprehensive security with minimal performance impact, and management. This white paper offers insights into how McAfee Server Security Suites tackles all of these challenges and provides better visibility across the entire enterprise data center.
Téléchargez notre livre électronique sur la virtualisation pour apprendre à améliorer la flexibilité de votre entreprise et la prestation de services via un réseau ouvert et flexible. Découvrez comment rapprocher les mondes virtuels et physiques et simplifier les connexions entre plusieurs data centers.
À l'heure où les charges de travail des applications sont redéfinies, les data centers doivent évoluer. Ce livre blanc IDC étudie comment l'orchestration et l'automatisation des réseaux peuvent faciliter cette transition en créant des réseaux plus simples et plus flexibles.
In both legacy IT data centers and emerging private and public clouds, virtualization is becoming the norm. Through virtualization, organizations are realizing the benefits of scalability, agility and efficiency.
Customers looking to cloud technologies for better application agility and more efficient support of their entire IT operations are finding that broader use of virtualization across hardware is fundamental to achieving these goals.
Datacenters are the factories of the Internet age, just like warehouses, assembly lines, and machine shops were for the industrial age. Over the course of the past several years, riding the wave of modernization, datacenters have become the heart and soul of the financial industry, which each year invests over $480 billion in datacenter infrastructure of hardware, software, networks, and security and services.
Undoubtedly you are aware of network virtualization, but perhaps you’ve yet to hear a compelling case for it. If the extended network capabilities and simplified management enabled by network virtualization aren’t compelling enough reasons, data center security should be. To manage today’s coordinated and persistent security threats, which often come from within, data centers need to implement “Zero Trust” networking. Virtualization puts it within your reach. Discover why — download this free business case white paper now.
Security breaches targeting government and military data centers are increasing. Attackers have learned to defeat current means of physical network security, which emphasize perimeter defense. Today, organizations must protect the workloads inside the data center, utilizing a concept called micro-segmentation to build a “Zero Trust” network. But that has been unrealistic, requiring too great an investment in hardware, time, and manpower — until now, that is. Download this use case from VMware and Carahsoft® now to learn why.

Technology has become the heart and soul of every business. The hardware boundaries of IT have exploded beyond data centers, with mobile devices in the hands of both employees and customers alike. Application options have blossomed, from traditional to open source to software-as-a-service. Business has
become global, bringing with it a demand for round-the-clock agility. Employees expect that the applications they use at work should be as easy to use as the Web apps they use at home. Integration remains difficult, because it’s sometimes impossible to know what will happen when someone tries to pluck one strand out of the pile. IT workload and system complexity will only get more challenging, bringing the need for disintermediation
through service automation.
Cisco's Virtualized Multi-tenant Data Center (VMDC) system defines an end-to-end architecture, which an organization may reference for the migration or build out of virtualized, multi-tenant data centers for new cloud-based service models such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
Today's datacenter networks must better adapt to and accommodate business-critical application workloads. Datacenters will have to increasingly adapt to virtualized workloads and to the ongoing enterprise transition to private and hybrid clouds.
Cisco Systems, with 75,000 employees and annual revenue of
close to $50 billion, is a major multinational supplier of
networking solutions. In addition to supplying networking
solutions that businesses use to run their own datacenters,
Cisco is constantly seeking to simplify and optimize its own IT
infrastructure to make it more adaptable and innovative and to
better provide itself with a competitive advantage.
New business demands and technology trends are changing the role of IT and introducing new challenges to
application availability that yesterday’s data centers were not designed to address. By upgrading to Cisco Nexus®
switches—purpose-built for today’s data center needs—you can:
? Increase performance and scalability to meet the demands of virtualization, cloud computing, and modern
? Radically simplify management and operations
? Quickly adapt infrastructure to align the data center network with the needs of your business applications,
today and in the future
It’s the last storage architecture you will ever need—regardless of whether your organization is a small or midsized business, a large global enterprise, or a service provider. With a range of models to meet the needs of small to large data centers running key business applications up through enterprise-wide deployment of mission-critical applications and beyond, HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage has you covered.
Download this white paper to see why securing the data center requires a solution that can:
-Provide visibility and control over custom data center applications
-Handle asymmetric traffic flows and application transactions between devices and data centers
-Adapt as data centers evolve: to virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), Cisco -Application-Centric Infrastructures (ACIs) and beyond
-Address the entire attack continuum: before, during, and after an attack
-Integrate with security deployed across the entire network
-Support geograpically dispersed inter-DC traffic and deployments, including private, public and cloud environments
A high percentage of today’s data centers use water-based cooling methods to keep them from becoming the equivalent of a Hopi sweatbox in the desert. When you’re planning a new data center you may want to consider the impact of the weather and water availability on your decision.
