This whitepaper provides an overview of how Craigs International leveraged Alibaba Cloud’s technology solutions, including Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN), Virtual Private Network (VPN) Gateway, and Smart Access Gateway (SAG), to build a global enterprise network. Alibaba Cloud’s solutions helped them improve business operations, increase efficiency, maximize profitability, and reduce OPEX and CAPEX costs. Craigs International wants to move to the cloud to build a global hybrid enterprise network by partnering with a technology player that has such solid experience within Mainland China.
So what lessons can operators learn from the past experience with server virtualization? Beware of merely shifting costs from capital to operating expenditures. Be selective in virtualizing the right resources and functions driven by the business need, and not the technology lure.
Software-defined Networking (SDN) im WAN bietet die Möglichkeit, durch höhere Betriebseffizienz, schnellere Erstellung von Services sowie differenzierte und personalisierte Netzwerk-Services die Kosten zu senken
Gleichzeitig wurden jedoch die Betriebskosten aufgrund komplexeren und arbeitsintensiveren Prozessen in die Höhe getrieben. Teilweise konnten diese Kosten durch vermehrte Integration der Server- und Netzwerkinfrastruktur und erweiterte Funktionalität der Software eingedämmt werden
Las redes definidas por software (SDN) en la WAN permiten reducir los costes gracias al aumento de la eficacia operativa, una mayor velocidad a la hora de crear servicios, y servicios de redes diferenciados y personalizados.
Sin embargo, los costes operativos se dispararon, ya que se necesitó una serie de procesos complejos y laboriosos. Con el tiempo, estos costes se controlaron gracias a una mayor integración de los servidores y la infraestructura de la red, así como a capacidades de software más avanzadas.
WAN edge infrastructure is changing rapidly as I&O leaders responsible for networking face dynamic business requirements, including new application architectures and on-premises and cloud-based deployment models. I&O leaders can use this research to identify vendors that best fit their requirements. By year-end 2023, more than 90% of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on virtualized customer premises equipment (vCPE) platforms or software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) software/appliances versus traditional routers (up from less than 40% today).
The Time for the Hybrid WAN IT has gone through a significant evolution over the past decade. Virtualization has changed the entire face of the data center, the network edge has become predominantly wireless and consumer devices reign supreme. However, one of the few areas of IT that has yet to evolve is the corporate wide area network (WAN). Managing the WAN is something network managers have always struggled with because WAN speeds are typically an order of magnitude, or more, slower than local area networks (LANs).

Customers today are far more concerned about the contents and origin of a product than ever before. in such a scenario, granting them easy access to product information, via digital initiatives such as SmartLabel™, goes a long way in strengthening customer trust in a brand. But it also means expending several man-hours of effort processing unstructured data, with the possibility of human error.
Intelligent automation can help save effort and time, with virtually error-free results. A consumer products conglomerate wanted a smart solution to implement SmartLabel™ compliance. See how Infosys helped and the five key takeaways from the project.
This white paper illustrates how the integration of zero touch provisioning with EdgeConnect profiles, and the further integration of local profiles into the global business intent of Silver Peak’s virtual overlays, fulfills the promise of SD-WAN with virtualised wide area networking.

How to effectively troubleshoot your VDI deployment Virtual desktop infrastructure has come a long way since the first steps were taken a decade ago to run desktop workloads in the data center.
While more pervasive today, VDI technologies are latency-sensitive, and wholly dependent on the network. Complaints of poor end-user experience persist, especially over the WAN at branch offices where bandwidth constraints and latency delays are common.
But there is a way to ensure consistent and reliable VDI performance to deliver:
Enhanced planning and control
Read this brief to learn how the Riverbed® Cascade® application-aware network performance management (NPM) solution unlocks VDI visibility.
OpenLab provides an environment and set of resources where customers representing telecommunications, education, government, financial services, and virtually every other vertical market can explore new technologies, all in the spirit of network transformation. By examining SDN/network automation solutions such Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), software-defined WAN (SD-WAN), and others, OpenLab offers a platform for developing and delivering new network-integrated functionality that serves the greater need.
The Aspera FASP high speed transport platform is enabled to provide
high-performance secure WAN transport of files, directories, and other
large data sets to, from and between a number of leading third-party
cloud storage platforms. The implementation is an enhanced transport
stack and virtual file system layer in the Aspera server software that
allows for direct-to-object-storage transfer over the WAN using the FASP
protocol and the native I/O capabilities of the particular third-party file
system. The stack is available in all generally available Aspera server
software products and supports interoperable transfer with all generally
available Aspera client software
Recent research from Kaspersky has revealed a massive criminal campaign that was able to infiltrate more than 100 different banks and steal upwards of $1 billion from the affected institutions. Kaspersky dubbed this operation the Carbanak APT due to a connection between the malware used in the attacks and the now infamous Carberp banking botnet. You may recall the headlines in 2013 that revealed the Carberp source code had been leaked into the wild, making it accessible to virtually any would-be criminal group that may want it. The accessibility of Carberp source code could easily have provided a starting point for the Carbanak as they built their malware.
"Although they have been around for several years, virtual desktop and application virtualization solutions have not yet gone mainstream in most enterprises. That’s bound to change, however, given advances in the technologies and the increasing need to deliver a great computing experience to mobile device users.
Read this Executive Viewpoint Q&A with VMware Senior VP and General Manager of Desktops Sumit Dhawan, as he explains why it’s time to revisit virtual desktop and application virtualization technologies. "

The number of services available via online subscription is exploding—and the big bang of subscription is only gaining momentum. Companies want to turn one-time purchases into
regularly recurring subscriptions or memberships. The siren song of subscription success is calling to executives in virtually every industry. Business leaders want ongoing revenue streams from an army of subscribers. But, as companies that plunged into recurring business models are realizing, subscriptions are more than just transactions that recur. Subscription success can be illusive. Too often, subscription models don’t generate the expected high, ongoing revenue streams.

Cloud, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly central to business decisions as the pace of digitization accelerates. The impact of software-defined networking (SDN), virtualization, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure within the datacenter is substantial. These technologies add complexity but offer enticing opportunities for new business models, revenue streams, operating efficiencies, and agility that organizations must pursue if they want to remain competitive and viable. This pursuit requires businesses to keep up with current and emerging technologies and applications and transform the ways in which they conduct business. At the core of "keeping up" is an organization's datacenter strategy — with an associated technology and services strategy that will either create industry laggards or accelerate innovators.
