Following the sale of a company division housing its corporate data center, Source Interlink had to relocate core IT operations. Teaming with CDW, they were able to not only relocate, but lower capital and operating costs, reduce
their carbon footprint, and increase efficiency.
What’s needed today is storage that’s flexible enough to be used for both legacy IT and virtual systems environments and repurposed as new needs arise. Storage must be quickly expandable and must enable data and applications to be easily and securely migrated, with workloads automatically rebalanced. Applications need to be online 24 x 7, so high availability is paramount. Management of the entire storage pool, as well as coordination with virtualized servers and networking, must be streamlined and simplified. This Tech Dossier reveals how HP Converged Storage can meet your organizations storage requirements.
Enterprise-critical applications—those which drive the core of an organization—require the highest availability infrastructure to support the most stringent service levels. EMC meets this need with a high performing, functionally capable, and competitively priced high-end networked storage system—the EMC® Symmetrix® VMAX® 20K system with the Enginuity™ operating environment. The VMAX 20K scale-out architecture helps organizations exceed the performance and capacity demands of hyper-consolidation, cloud deployments, and all-virtual Software Defined Data Centers (SDDCs), while simplifying the costs of data management.
WHEN IT COMES TO DATA CENTER OPTIMIZATION, IT’S NOT JUST WHAT YOU KNOW. IT’S WHO YOU KNOW. That’s why we partner with leading vendors like EMC. They offer a wide range of devices for primary storage, archiving, backup, recovery and data center management. And with years of experience in EMC deployments, CDW has the experts and the expertise to make them work for you. Together, we give our customers access to the latest technologies that help optimize their data centers to keep their organizations running smoothly.

So many people are realising that yesterday’s technology can’t support today’s fast-changing data and are turning to a new generation of database: NoSQL.
NoSQL makes it easy to consolidate your heterogeneous data and consolidate disparate data silos because you don’t need to make data conform to the row-and-column restrictions of relational technology.
Get a head start and download Enterprise NoSQL for Dummies and discover:
• The NoSQL lingo
• What it does and how it works
• How it can be used
• Tips for what to look for in an Enterprise NoSQL database
Go beyond relational and learn how NoSQL allows you to build applications with greater ease and speed!
Gartner: Moving Toward the All Solid-State Storage Data Center
Are you only using solid-state arrays for your primary data? If so, you’re missing out on the benefits flash can deliver to other applications, such as active archives, data lakes, and big data infrastructures. In this independent report, Gartner finds that progressive I&O leaders are already moving toward an all solid-state data center and predicts that others will soon follow. Read the report here.
For customers looking to implement flash for primary data center storage, NetApp's All Flash FAS systems offer some significant advantages over competitive offerings. Customer can deploy All Flash FAS arrays for specific applications now and later extend them to private and hybrid cloud-based applications as enterprise IT's longer term strategy dictates. Read this technology insight paper on investing strategically in all flash arrays.

Download IDC's paper to learn how a single data management tier across on-premise and multiple clouds is critical to making hybrid cloud and multicloud environments effective. This foundation for digital transformation success helps businesses: improve time to market, cut compliance risk, and enable businesses to innovate at an accelerated pace.
The proliferation of business unit cloud use is primarily motivated by digital transformation's need for innovation and agility in big data and real-time analytics, rather than cost optimization, which causes overspending. CIOs should use three moves to gain business influence and optimize costs.
In today’s evolving hybrid- and multicloud world, successful organizations need to make the best decisions about where to run their applications and workloads. But this demands sweeping visibility into data location, utilization, and performance.
Disaster recovery (DR) from remote sites with dedicated servers, storage, and networking gear has long been a best practice for mission-critical applications. However, other applications and data have often gone unprotected due to the costs required for redundant DR assets that are seldom, if ever, utilized. The ability to move DR to the cloud has changed the picture and enabled IT organizations to build more robust DR strategies than had been possible in the past.
Companies are moving applications to the cloud with software-as-a-service (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) usage increasing at a steady rate. IDC research has found that over half of organizations currently utilize a hybrid cloud configuration. For many companies, backing up data to the cloud is the easiest way to begin using the cloud. To achieve the benefits of backup to the cloud without taking on extra risk, IT leaders need to understand the nuances of cloud-based storage services and plan accordingly.
