Many organizations have invested in server consolidation, particularly in their data centers. In remote offices, though, servers and storage exist as isolated islands of infrastructure that require management through separate operational processes and procedures. This approach is costly and places data at risk. However, a new branch converged infrastructure architecture allows IT to consolidate in the branch office to minimize the IT footprint needed to run branch applications-all the while centralizing remote servers and data in the data center.
The perfect mix of performance and energy savings, the IBM BladeCenter S is ideal for the small to mid-sized office and the remote office. It neatly consolidates your storage, servers and networking into a single chassis that plugs into a standard electrical outlet, supports virtually all applications, and uses less energy than comparable systems. Get inside the IBM BladeCenter S with this 3D Virtual Tour that lets you dissect the BladeCenter chassis and look through its components.
Mobile and remote workers of all types need high-quality connections to the Internet and to their corporate networks. They need connections from branch offices, homes, airports, hotels and other locations around the world. This truly becomes a security challenge as network managers scramble to meet these needs.
When evaluating the pros and cons of DSL and cable modem Internet access, enterprises should factor speed, cost, installation, consistency and security into the decision-making process. While the right access choice is a function of location, availability and service offerings, DSL is often the better option for remote workers, satellite offices and traveling employees.
In today’s global marketplace, you rely on your IP telephony environment to unite employees who work remotely, in a branch, or at the office headquarters by providing seamless, effective communications. Whether at the time of deployment, during an upgrade, or through an operational review, validating these environments to function properly and meet user expectations is critical.
Data deduplication is not just altering how backup targets are used; it dramatically affects operating efficiencies, simplifies remote office data protection, and makes disaster recovery significantly more affordable and realistic. Read on.
Since 2005, organizations have created more workspace changes – eliminating vast (and dull) cubicle farms in favor of community spaces arranged to accomplish several goals including:
• Maximize existing workspace
• Foster more collaboration and teamwork
• Accommodate mobile/remote employees who no longer need a dedicated space in an office building
Hot desking and desk hoteling are workspace strategies that are here to stay. This executive briefing will help any real estate or facility manager understand how to leverage these concepts, adapt to trends and get a return that the finance team will appreciate.
The workplace is changing rapidly to accommodate mobile and flexible work styles, as employees expect the same computing experience when working remotely as they get in the office. And those expectations are rising rapidly among all employees — not just in the executive hallways or engineering labs. To discover more about mobile work styles and client virtualization trends in today’s enterprises, Citrix Systems and HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to survey IT decision-makers in North America, Europe, and Asia for this Technology Adoption Profile (TAP). Coupled with Forrester’s existing Forrsights data, we found that IT is turning to client virtualization to manage the growing complexity that BYOD programs and mobility initiatives have created and is embracing end-to-end solutions to overcome the toughest client virtualization challenges concerning cost, performance, scalability, and security.
Many Windows applications are traditional x86/x64 apps, which can be several GBs in size. To package and deploy apps to remote worker and branch office endpoints, organizations mostly rely on costly distribution servers, which are both capital and labor intensive. New Windows Software Distribution capabilities in AirWatch create a more efficient and enterprise scalable deployment experience that reduces bandwidth, infrastructure, and labor costs.
• Manage the full lifecycle of Win32 apps - including deploying apps, dependencies and patches
• Eliminate the challenges of complex app packaging, unreliable app installs and recurring OS imaging with App Stacks delivery
• Distribute apps to remote and branch users with CDN and P2P capabilities and eliminate your distribution server footprint
• Deliver apps in a unified app catalog and provide a consistent single sign-on experience for the user

In this case study, a large enterprise with an increasing amount
of off-site work from both work-related travel and a fast-growing
remote workforce, is faced with a unique challenge to ensure
their data security is scalable and impenetrable. Their data access
policies rely on physical access management provided at the
company offices and do not always provide off-site employees
with the ability to complete work-critical tasks. Legacy security
solutions only add burden to productivity, sometimes causing
employees to ignore security protocols in order to simply
complete their work. Upon evaluating security vendors for a
frictionless solution, they selected BehavioSec for its enterprise-grade capabilities with on-premise deployment and integration
with existing legacy risk management systems.
