Many businesses are adopting a multi-cloud infrastructure. However, managing data and communication between multiple cloud environments is often challenging and complex. Therefore, companies often try to find a technical partner that can help them. Companies with on-premise data centers need some type of interconnect to access their products and services hosted on the cloud. The traditional Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection method usually can’t meet enterprise speed,stability, security, and compliance requirements.This whitepaper describes the challenges that companies face when building dedicated connections between different cloud environments and how Alibaba Cloud’s Express Connect is the perfect solution for them

The container revolution is under way today as companies seek to move faster and build digital assets
to support growth. IDC forecasts that there will be over 1.8 billion enterprise container instances
deployed by 2021. Container platforms will be key to managing the ever-expanding diversity of
IT environments (multiple operating systems, hypervisors, private clouds, and public clouds).
While containers are the perfect vehicle to underpin cloud-native, microservices applications,
containers are also well suited to many existing applications. These applications can reap immediate
benefits from being modernized and prepare for possible refactoring over time. To successfully
leverage containers in these diverse scenarios and do it at scale, enterprises will need a robust,
integrated, and holistic container platform.
A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment?

Today, nearly every datacenter has become heavily virtualized. In fact, according to Gartner as many as 75% of X86 server workloads are already virtualized in the enterprise datacenter. Yet even with the growth rate of virtual machines outpacing the rate of physical servers, industry wide, most virtual environments continue to be protected by backup systems designed for physical servers, not the virtual infrastructure they are used on. Even still, data protection products that are virtualization-focused may deliver additional support for virtual processes, but there are pitfalls in selecting the right approach.
This paper will discuss five common costs that can remain hidden until after a virtualization backup system has been fully deployed.

Enterprises today increasingly turn to array-based snapshots and replication to augment or replace legacy data protection solutions that have been overwhelmed by data growth. The challenge is that native array snapshot tools – and alternative 3rd party solutions – have varying degrees of functionality, automation, scripting requirements, hardware support and application awareness. These approaches can add risk as well as administrative complexity and make it more difficult to realize the full potential of snapshots – whether in single disk vendor estates or in heterogeneous storage environments.
This checklist will enable you to build a shortlist of the 'must have' features needed for snapshots to deliver exactly what you require in your application environment or Private Cloud.
Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners.

It is no secret; security and compliance are at the top of the list of concerns tied to cloud adoption. According to a recent 2017 Cloud Security survey to over 350,000 members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community, IT pros have general concerns about security in the cloud (33 percent), in addition to data loss and leakage risks (26 percent) and legal and regulatory compliance (24 percent)1. The number of reported breaches in enterprise datacenter environments still far exceeds the reported exposure from cloud platforms, but as businesses start using public clouds to run their mission-critical workloads, the need for enterprise-grade security in the cloud will increase.
Public cloud environments require a centralized, consolidated platform for security that is built from the ground up for the cloud, and allows administrators to monitor and actively enforce security policies. The tools and techniques that worked to secure datacenter environments fail miserably in the cloud. Se
If your organization is one of the 95% of enterprises
that operate in the cloud, you are already grappling
with cloud security. And if your organization is one of
the 85% of companies that use multiple Infrastructureas-a-Service
(IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
clouds, you have additional issues to consider.
Compared to the days when organizations managed
everything on-premises or only had a handful of cloud
deployments, this new multi-cloud world exacerbates
the expansion of the attack surface and makes threat
containment and accountability more difficult. Further,
pressure on security teams to protect everything in
the multi-cloud environment is leading to reactive and
expensive threat management.
If you are a security leader tasked with meeting the
challenges of a multi-cloud environment, eventually
you’ll find that siloed cloud security strategies fall short
of the mark. But don’t wait. Now is the time to consider
