Using your allotted resources wisely is admirable. However, have you thought in detail about the real costs associated with using “white box” servers? The Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) delivers advantages, including a lower total cost of ownership (TCO), beyond those that white-box servers can deliver.
The tipping point has arrived. Large enterprises are planning their next-generation datacenters around flash-based storage, and for good reason. Flash arrays provide read and write performance that is orders of magnitude faster than spinning media at a total cost of ownership that is on par with disk and will soon be lower. The benefits not only include improved application performance, but more consistent performance, lower latency, reduced storage footprint, streamlined storage administration, and lower operating costs. These advantages are too beneficial to your business to ignore. That’s why flash is becoming the standard for new storage investments.

Modern storage arrays can’t compete on price without a range of data reduction
technologies that help reduce the overall total cost of ownership of external
storage. Unfortunately, there is no one single data reduction technology that fits
all data types and we see savings being made with both data deduplication and
compression, depending on the workload. Typically, OLTP-type data (databases)
work well with compression and can achieve between 2:1 and 3:1 reduction,
depending on the data itself. Deduplication works well with large volumes of
repeated data like virtual machines or virtual desktops, where many instances or
images are based off a similar “gold” master.
The ways in which the Internet supports our everyday lives have become richer, more engaging, and more mobile. This innovation is driven by the visionaries, designers, developers, and managers of the web experiences that users consume every day. By exploring new ways to solve challenges and improve products and services that enrich our lives, developers and business owners have stretched the Internet to support use cases for which it was never designed. In order to succeed, modern web experiences must seem simple to end-users, even though most ultimately require complex design and technology to deliver.
The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).

If you’re anything like your peers, you are evaluating your education technology on an annual basis to determine if it’s time for a refresh. While most schools conduct their device refreshes during the summer because teachers, staff and students are not present, this timing can prove costly as the market is flooded with devices from schools doing the same thing.
To help school districts re-think their technology spending to focus more on total cost of ownership and residual value, as opposed to upfront cost, we’ve partnered with Diamond Assets — a technology buyback company — to explain:
• The true value and cost of iPad and Chromebook in education
• When schools receive the most trade-in value for their technology
• How to prepare for and execute technology refreshes

Business owners and entrepreneurs create their businesses for a number of reasons: to grow an idea, build and inspire a team, make a difference.
And all too quickly, those business owners can face the other side of running a business: paying employees, negotiating the best benefits for your teams, keeping up with myriad government regulations.
Workplaces are getting even more complicated - for good reasons. Teams have more flexibility to work remotely. And the gig economy is exploding; in fact, about a third of the U.S. workforce works on something other than a full-time basis.
Our industry has made numerous technological

Between 2010 and 2013, the U.S. saw an estimated average of 48
electrocution fatalities associated with consumer products per year,
with large and small electric appliances chief among them1. Tragedies
like these can be avoided, especially when the ground fault circuit
interrupter (GFCI) technologies needed to prevent dangerous events
are readily available.
As the principle NEMA representative at the National Electrical Code
(NEC) Code-Making Panel Two, I saw public input asking for increased
GFCI protection for the home during the 2017 code cycle. The code
panel expanded the GFCI requirement for facilities other than dwelling
units as part of section NEC 210.8(B). However, residential standards
improvements were sidelined.

Enterprises currently face challenges regarding
the price, performance, and flexibility of traditional
wide area networks (WANs). Aggressive growth in
the adoption of public cloud services (a projected
86% spike between 2014 and 2018)1
organizations to look elsewhere for a more effective
network solution to address distributed traffic across
remote sites and branch offices.
Some of the specific issues organizations face with
their traditional WANs include:
- High total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Lengthy provisioning cycles
- Performance degradation with the growth of cloud
- Inadequate redundancy and resiliency
- Lack of application-aware connectivity
To better manage WAN investments, enterprises are
adopting a new approach for their distributed branch
office networks. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN)
offers improved performance, agility, and operational
flexibility plus significant cost savings. But not all SDWAN
solutions are created equal.
