Cybercrime has rapidly evolved, and not for the better. What began in the 1990s as innocent pranks designed to uncover holes in Windows servers and other platforms soon led to hacker Kevin Mitnick causing millions of dollars in malicious damages, landing him in prison for half a decade and raising the awareness of cybersecurity enough to jump-start a multimillion-dollar antivirus industry. Then came the script kiddies, unskilled hackers who used malicious code written by others to wreak havoc, often just for bragging rights. If only that were still the case.
Public clouds have fundamentally changed the way organizations build,
operate, and manage applications. Security for applications in the cloud
is composed of hundreds of configuration parameters and is vastly
different from security in traditional data centers. According to Gartner,

The uniqueness of cloud requires that security teams rethink classic

Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.

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.
For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.

In midsize and large organizations, critical business processing continues to depend on relational databases including Microsoft® SQL Server. While new tools like Hadoop help businesses analyze oceans of Big Data, conventional relational-database management systems (RDBMS) remain the backbone for online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytic processing (OLAP), and mixed OLTP/OLAP workloads.

It’s no secret that today’s unprecedented data growth, data center consolidation and server virtualization are wreaking havoc with conventional approaches to backup and recovery. Here are five strategies for modern data protection that will not only help solve your current data management challenges but also ensure that you’re poised to meet future demands.

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution
Technology enables business transformation To thrive in today’s idea economy, small and midsize companies like yours are using technology to transform their business. Like your peers, you know that mobile applications, cloud-based solutions, and advanced analytics can help you increase productivity, reduce costs, and grow your business. Older servers, storage, and networking products weren’t built to handle the exploding amount of data that is being shared today. In order to take advantage of these modern applications, many companies have found that they need to close the gap between what their business demands and what their IT systems can deliver.
