In an era of business that demands unrivaled agility, most organizations are stuck on networks that are still hardware-bound, router-heavy, and hard-coded. Fortunately, the software-defined movement is ushering in a whole new way to manage enterprise WANs. Read this white paper from CIO.com and Riverbed to explore the business drivers behind SD-WAN. See what benefits SD-WAN can deliver your organization, and gain some insights into overcoming the potential obstacles of adopting an SD-WAN to unlock its full potential.
With server virtualization now well established in the world's datacenters, IT leaders are turning their attention to virtualizing and centralizing desktop PCs to address some of their toughest computing challenges:
. Managing complex end-user hardware and software infrastructure
. Securing networks and information assets
. Supporting a global workforce in an environment of constant change
In terms of health care IT, what does the next five years look like? The IT team at Harvard Medical School — Partners HealthCare Center for Genetics and Genomics (HPCGG) has focused its efforts on building a viable IT foundation with the right hardware and innovative software. The team also hopes to ensure that IT is not a constraining factor in realizing the benefits of next-generation sequencing technologies. Read this white paper to learn how HPCGG is implementing a cost-effective storage system that can integrate with its existing cluster environment for exponentially faster data access.
With Quest Workspacetm Asset Manager, you can easily find data on hardware and software inventory and compare it to records on what's been purchased as well as what's actually in use. Centrally track and manage the IT contracts and licenses then generate usage reports automatically that you easily correlate to actual purchase costs and legal responsibilities. For managing software licenses, Quest Workspacetm Asset Manager goes beyond simply scanning and identifying software. It traces software usage through metering and quickly identifies if it's being underutilized, sitting idle or if the appropriate number of licenses have been purchased. From one solution, you can implement IT asset management best practices that eliminate overspending and ensure license compliance.
Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, Microsoft’s next generation hypervisor technology, adds an exciting new dimension to the server virtualization market. With Hyper-V and Microsoft’s integrated Server Management suite, you can take advantage of a powerful set of tools to help simplify infrastructure management and better utilize your hardware investments.

This white paper examines the economics of deploying Red Hat's Storage Server. Based on GlusterFS, a distributed file system that Red Hat acquired as part of Gluster, Red Hat Storage Server is ushering in a new era of software-based storage (also known as software-defined storage by many suppliers) solutions. Such solutions leverage commodity x86-based hardware from server vendors and a distributed shared nothing architecture that allows businesses to build out a service-based storage infrastructure in an economically feasible manner.
Companies that take a more sophisticated approach to customer success, revenue retention and revenue growth after the initial sale earn 46 percent more revenue compared to their less sophisticated peers, according to a global study conducted in 2015 across software, hardware, SaaS and life sciences companies.
The study highlights the urgent need for companies to consider the full range of customer success and revenue growth activities after the initial sale—collectively called the “revenue lifecycle”—which includes onboarding, adoption, upselling/cross-selling, retention and renewal. The study shows that a company that improves people, processes, technology, data and KPIs in the revenue lifecycle can expect to improve renewal rates by more than 31 points.

What is the key benefit of SD-WAN?
To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users.
But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere.
Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking.
This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access.
Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you:
• Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks.
• Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users.
• Deploy locally with zero touch via automated

Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic
Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI)
enterprises may realize by shifting some or all their management and
operations from on-premises, hosted, and outsourced implementations to
Azure’s infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering. The purpose of this
study is to give readers a framework to evaluate the potential financial
impact, or ROI, of leveraging Azure IaaS for their organizations. Benefits
gained by interviewed customers that migrated or re-architected some or
all workloads from on-premises to IaaS include:
› Greater revenue opportunities from business-to-business (B2B) and
customer web channels with a solution that is more mobile and reliable,
and meets scale and seasonality needs.
› Increased profits from those revenues.
› Improved production efficiency.
› Reduced datacenter, IT resource, and outsourcing costs.
› Easier and faster software and hardware management (such as

For over a decade, IT organizations have been plagued by high data warehousing costs, with millions of dollars spent annually on specialized, high-end hardware and DBA personnel overhead for performance tuning. The root cause: using data warehouse database management (DBMS) software, like Oracle and SQLServer that were designed 20-30 years ago to handle write-intensive OLTP workloads, not query-intensive analytic workloads.

In a world of growing data volumes and shrinking IT budgets, it is critical to think differently about the efficiency of your database and storage infrastructure. The Vertica Analytic Database is a high-performance, scalable and cost-effective solution that can bring dramatic savings in
hardware, storage and operational costs.
Increased processing needs means increased energy costs. In fact, power costs can often exceed hardware costs. Read this white paper and see how the pairing of new IBM System x and BladeCenter servers with the new Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series can reduce costs and improve performance.
Intel faces a familiar challenge: do more with less. With compute capacity growing exponentially and chip size expectation shrinking, the new 5500 series delivers on both fronts. This white paper delivers test results that show increased performance and speed along with greater efficiency.
Even with increased start-up costs, higher-end processors can offer a lower TCO thanks to better performance. This white paper shows detailed comparisons between higher- and lower-end servers with surprising results—including a 42% lower TCO and 87% faster performance for the higher-end processor.
Live migration is essential for a dynamic data center environment. But until now, it's been impossible between different generations of processors.
