According to recent ESG research, 70% of IT respondents indicated they plan to invest in HCI over the next 24 months. IT planners are increasingly turning toward HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions to simplify and speed up infrastructure deployments, ease day-to-day operational management, reduce costs, and increase IT speed and agility.
HCI consists of a nodal-based architecture whereby all the required virtualized compute, storage, and networking assets are self-contained inside individual nodes. These nodes are, in effect, discrete virtualized computing resources “in a box.” However, they are typically grouped together to provide resiliency, high performance, and flexible resource pooling. And since HCI appliances can scale out to large configurations over time, these systems can provide businesses with investment protection and a simpler, more agile, and cost-effective way to deploy virtualized computing infrastructure.

In March of 2019, Sirkin Research was commissioned by LiveAction to identify the driving forces of network transformation and how the rapidly evolving network environment is impacting network professionals. It is well recognized that network transformations, such as SD-WAN, WiFi, and multi-cloud, edge computing among other trends, are creating a host of new challenges and opportunities for network operations. This research is based on responses from over 163 network and IT professionals in predominantly in enterprise organizations with at least $1 billion in revenue

Networks and attack surfaces are changing fast – there’s so much more than servers and endpoints. Now, you’re responsible for securing everything from cloud platforms to DevOp containers to web apps. Cyber Exposure is an emerging discipline for measuring and managing cyber risk across this modern attack surface. This ebook takes a close look at Cyber Exposure, including the Cyber Exposure gap created by legacy security offerings and the Cyber Exposure platform designed to protect all computing assets. If you’re responsible for guarding your organization’s fast-changing assets, this ebook is a must-have.
To maximize the benefits of its next-generation systems and successfully execute its information strategy, CU had to overcome its aging network. Most of CU’s network infrastructure, which was built from solutions by another vendor, was introduced in 2007, when its computing center was first built. Over time, the equipment began to fail, affecting the stability of applications which relied on network connectivity. Technical support also became a major issue as the equipment faced obsolescence and maintenance contracts with vendors expired.
For a network that better supports your cloud and brings the most value possible to your business, its design has to be considered in the early stages of cloud planning. Read the white paper "Networking for cloud computing" to discover specific networking considerations for public, private and hybrid clouds.
Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) is a major breakthrough in network function virtualization (NFV). When
asked where they have deployed NFV in production networks, communication service providers (CSPs) consistently name vEPC as one of the top answers. Why is that?
In order to maximize their processing capacity, CSPs virtualize a subset of their network applications, including
mobile edge computing (MEC), base stations (small/macro
cells) and the mobile core, because these systems use a
The mobile packet core builds the foundation of the core
network on which mobile CSPs offer IP-based services to
their customers. Implementing vEPC solutions can help
CSPs obtain the scale necessary to accommodate growing
numbers of subscribers and large amounts of traffic or
connections while controlling costs and improving on quality of experience (QoE). In the past, evolved packet core
(EPC) solutions were deployed on purpose-built hardware.
NFV enables operators to deploy EPC c
This report outlines the limitations of legacy networks and how adding a technology called multipath networking can greatly improve the performance of cloud applications. It also provides advice on the evaluation criteria for multi-path networking solutions.
This case study reveals how Interroll, a leading provider of high-quality core products for internal logistics, became frustrated with the high cost and complexity of MPLS and turned to Silver Peak to build an SD-WAN.
Advanced image analysis and computer vision are key components of today’s AI revolution and is becoming critical for a wide range of industry applications, including healthcare, where this technology is being used to detect anomalies and improve patient care. Due to a lack of integrated tools and experience with these cutting-edge technologies, however, deploying complete systems is difficult.
Applications that utilize deep learning approaches often require large amounts of highly parallel compute power, storage, and networking capabilities, along with performance optimizations for faster data analysis. The Intel and QNAP/IEI solution combines all these elements in one complete system for scalable data management for hospitals and clinics of all sizes.

"This Ovum white paper is sponsored by Juniper Networks. It reveals that organisations need to update and upgrade their cybersecurity postures to defend themselves against today's threats.
More than 80% of organisations in Asia are not protected against today's threats. Many of them depend on security investments made years ago, which cannot defend against new and emerging threats. The arrival of new technologies including cloud computing, the Internet of Things, mobility, bring your own device (BYOD), and social media have massively increased attack surfaces and expanded the threat landscape.
Over the past two years, there has been a global infestation of ransomware attacks, which have wrought destruction across a growing number of businesses. Crypto-jacking, attacks on critical infrastructure, and data exfiltration are now commonly affecting businesses and consumers alike.
