Distributed enterprises often encompass many remote offices that are essential to running the organization and supporting customers. Important activities at the edge include manufacturing, warehousing and distribution, even mobile or remote life-saving environments like health clinics. And while there is usually a central IT staff that creates the overall business architecture for the enterprise, specialized resources to deploy and maintain the infrastructure at the edge can be scarce.

This white paper describes the trends that are not only keeping the mainframe market alive but are supporting its growth. The growing complexity of IT makes consolidation and simplification of IT asset management essential. At the same time, increases in energy costs and concern about the environment are also impacting markets. Mainframes are uniquely positioned to provide the automation and virtualization today's complex infrastructures require while using less energy.

Traditionally, the best practice for mission-critical Oracle Database backup and recovery was to use storage-led, purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs) such as Data Domain, integrated with RMAN, Oracle’s automated backup and recovery utility. This disk-based backup approach solved two problems:
1) It enabled faster recovery (from disk versus tape)
2) It increased recovery flexibility by storing many more backups online, enabling restoration from that data to recover production databases; and provisioning copies for test/dev.
At its core, however, this approach remains a batch process that involves many dozens of complicated steps for backups and even more steps for recovery. Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (RA) customers report that total cost of ownership (TCO) and downtime costs (e.g. lost revenue due to database or application downtime) are significantly reduced due to the simplification and, where possible, the automation of the backup and recovery process.

Infrastructure simplification is a concept popping up very often lately with IT managers across all kinds of organizations. But it’s nothing new for small, and budget constrained IT shops that have
always looked at ways of keeping their infrastructure simple, very manageable and highly serviceable. Unalaska City School District (UCSD) is no exception; in fact, its needs are even more constrained due to its particular position on the map.
Located on the Aleutian Chain, approximately 800 air miles southwest of Anchorage, Alaska, Unalaska is home to 4,000 permanent residents and boasts the U.S’s most productive commercial fishing port of Dutch Harbor, which is also well-known as the home of successful TV show “The Deadliest Catch”.
Accessible only by airplane or boat, there are no roads to Unalaska. The deep water and ice-free International Port of Dutch Harbor serves cargo ships and large container vessels throughout the year, making this port one of the busiest transportation hubs in t
Now that employees are using more SaaS applications, its time for enterprises to adjust the way they manage employee identities. This white paper from Ping Identity addresses how IT can simplify identity management and maintain enterprise security.
Business Intelligence (BI) has become a mandatory part of every enterprise’s decision-making fabric. Unfortunately in many cases, with this rise in popularity, came a significant and disturbing complexity. Many BI environments began to have a myriad of moving parts: data warehouses and data marts deployed on multiple platforms and technologies – each requiring significant effort to ensure performance and support for the various needs and skill sets of the business resources using the environment. These convoluted systems became hard to manage or enhance with new requirements. To remain viable and sustainable, they must be simplified.
Fortunately today, we have the ability to build simpler BI technical environments that still support the necessary business requirements but without the ensuing management complexity. This paper covers what is needed to simplify BI environments and the technologies that support this simplification.
