The hybrid cloud has been heralded as a promising IT operational model enabling enterprises to maintain security and control over the infrastructure on which their applications run. At the same time, it promises to maximize ROI from their local data center and leverage public cloud infrastructure for an occasional demand spike.
Public clouds are relatively new in the IT landscape and their adoption has accelerated over the last few years with multiple vendors now offering solutions as well as improved on-ramps for workloads to ease the adoption of a hybrid cloud model.
With these advances and the ability to choose between a local data center and multiple public cloud offerings, one fundamental question must still be answered: What, when and where to run workloads to assure performance while maximizing efficiency?
In this whitepaper, we explore some of the players in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and hybrid cloud, the challenges surrounding effective implementation, and how to iden

For a backup solution to be considered flexible, it needs to satisfy
several key business requirements. It should integrate seamlessly
with any servers you’re running and provide full support for
all the applications your business uses. It should enable you to
protect assets in different parts of the country or overseas. And
it should let you manage and monitor backups from anywhere.
A flexible backup solution gives you everything you need to
protect the technology investments you make now and in the
future. So instead of having to buy multiple solutions to support
your changing needs, you can have a single solution that adapts
to fit your environment. We call that flexible deployment.

Today’s financial services organizations recognize that success starts with strong relationships built on trust and transparency. In a competitive market, a company’s employees can make or break these crucial relationships through their interactions with customers. That’s why businesses — from wealth management and insurance firms to banks and credit unions — are investing in automated workforce solutions to help them attract, engage, and retain top talent while controlling costs and driving exceptional service.
Managing a diverse workforce of exempt and nonexempt employees across back-office, contact center, and frontline operations is no easy feat. Finding and keeping best-fit employees is challenging enough, but you also need to optimize day-to-day functions like time and attendance, scheduling, payroll, labor cost and productivity tracking, and compliance management to stay competitive and profitable. Given this complexity, it is not surprising that management teams are not alway
The Internet of Things (IoT) didn’t just connect everything everywhere; It laid the groundwork for the next industrial revolution.
Connected devices sending data was only one achievement of the IoT—but one that helped solve the problem of data spread across countless silos that was not collected because it was too voluminous and/or too expensive to analyze.
Now, with advances in cloud computing and analytics, cheaper and more scalable factory solutions are available. This, in combination with the cost and size of sensors continuously being reduced, supplies the other achievement: the possibility for every organization to digitally transform.
Using a Smart Factory system, all relevant data is aggregated, analyzed, and acted upon. Sensors, devices, people, and processes are part of a connected ecosystem providing:
• Reduced downtime
• Minimized surplus and defects • Deep insights
• End-to-end real-time visibility

As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.

As high-density IT equipment becomes the new normal, the amount of heat generated continues to grow substantially – as does the challenge of efficiently cooling data centers. Traditional perimeter and/or raised floor computer room air conditioning systems increasingly struggle to remove concentrated heat loads. In many small to mid-size data centers, implementing close-coupled cooling solutions can be a highly effective and efficient strategy for supplementing cooling capacity. Located in or near server racks, close-coupled air conditioning units focus cooling where it is needed most without lowering the temperature of the entire data center. In addition, these modular solutions make it easy to reconfigure cooling to handle new equipment or eliminate hot spots. As a result, using close-coupled portable, rack-mounted or row-based air conditioning units tailored to your specific data center needs can boost cooling efficiency and add valuable flexibility.
