In real estate, the most important factor is location, location, location! Your services are not quite as sensitive to the physical position of your technology, but location certainly can be a pivotal factor in optimizing your service design and service delivery. Ideally, location shouldn’t matter; however, it does
have an e?ect on customer experience. When technology services were simpler, location was largely irrelevant, but now the complexity of new services demands a strategy more in line with your BT agenda than your former IT agenda. The e?ects of regulatory, cost, risk, and performance factors will vary based
on the physical location of your technology resources. Colocation providers, cloud service providers, and even traditional hosting services o?er plenty of evolving options to help infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals balance these factors to optimize service design and delivery.

How to overcome complexity and be ready for future growth.
The modern production digital print market brought a world of opportunities for micro-runs and variable data printing into the hands of Print Service Providers (PSPs). With print available in any quantity to anyone, print is being democratized, resulting in ever-greater numbers of increasingly smaller jobs. The old print model of high-volume static print is being replaced with a myriad of micro-runs and micro-jobs.
Automation that allows PSP owners to master the ensuing complexity and respond faster than ever before is enabling them to refocus on market development and on delivering value.
Solvent printing is the perfect solution for signs, vehicle wraps, and many other
print applications. Solvent inks produce top-quality graphics, enabling printing
service providers (PSPs) to maintain high-volume output and lower production
costs while providing their customers superior color gamut and accuracy.
Although solvent inks provide great performance and have many additional
bene ts, they come with one frustrating work ow drawback: the delays PSPs
experience by having to wait for solvent ink to dry, particularly when the
application requires lamination. A new breakthrough solvent ink technology
solves this problem by reducing print curing time by at least 75% of the 24
hour waiting period normally recognized by media manufacturers and industry
These new solvent inks make it possible for PSPs to laminate solvent prints on the
same day they are printed. PSPs can achieve high image quality without sacri cing
valuable time, plus they can avoid clutter and reduce spa

At Viavi Solutions® we’ve had the benefit of observing a number of hybrid cloud deployments up close.

In today’s digital economy, IT organizations are increasingly using public cloud technologies and services to meet their needs for increased agility and innovation, as well as cost management. This use of public cloud technologies is further complicated when companies use multiple cloud service providers, a concept also known as multi-cloud, and attempt to integrate on- and off-premises environments, known as hybrid cloud. IT organizations now must manage systems that span across both multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments, which presents new challenges for data protection. The Veeam Availability Platform offers solutions that can provide data protection to, from, and within multi-cloud environments, ensuring companies can fully leverage their public cloud providers and existing on-premises systems.
