This white paper examines the economics of deploying Red Hat's Storage Server. Based on GlusterFS, a distributed file system that Red Hat acquired as part of Gluster, Red Hat Storage Server is ushering in a new era of software-based storage (also known as software-defined storage by many suppliers) solutions. Such solutions leverage commodity x86-based hardware from server vendors and a distributed shared nothing architecture that allows businesses to build out a service-based storage infrastructure in an economically feasible manner.

NAS solutions built using the Windows Storage Server 2003 on standard Intel platforms provide a very cost effective solution to file serving. Servers built on this platform can export file services using CIFS, NFS, and other protocols, which provides a convenient platform to consolidate files.
By applying best practices, many best-run businesses have achieved a competitive edge from consolidating and modernising their EDI, B2B and file transfer environments - including their SAP processes. Learn their secret!
Business happens at the speed of “right now” across departmental, physical, geographical and organizational lines. Secure, anywhere, anytime access to the most up-to-minute business content ensures that employees, partners and customers can do business faster. Neither remote VPN access nor cloud-only sharing solutions provide the flexibility, security, and universal access required to support today’s business. What’s needed is a solution that offers the benefits of cloud-based file access along with the control and
manageability of local file systems.
Discover the Soonr Hybrid Cloud Sync and Share Solution that preserves existing file server infrastructure, while delivering complete mobile file sharing and collaboration capabilities.
IT organizations using machine data platforms like Splunk recognize the importance of consolidating disparate data types for top-down visibility, and to quickly respond to critical business needs. Machine data is often underused and undervalued, and is particularly useful when managing infrastructure data coming from AWS, sensors and server logs.

One of the biggest challenges IT ops teams face is the lack of visibility across its infrastructure — physical, virtual and in the cloud. Making things even more complex, any infrastructure monitoring solution needs to not only meet the IT team’s needs, but also the needs of other stakeholders including line of business (LOB) owners and application developers.
For companies already using a monitoring platform like Splunk, monitoring blindspots arise from the need to prioritize across multiple departments. This report outlines a four-step approach for an effective IT operations monitoring (ITOM) strategy.

The discovery of the Heartbleed bug in April, 2014 exposed a serious vulnerability in OpenSSL, an open-source cryptographic library often used with applications and web servers like Apache and Nginx. This latest high profile, targeted attack allowed infiltrators access to the memory of web servers running vulnerable versions of the library. Heartbleed quickly compromised the privacy for communications applications on the Web such as e-commerce, banking, email, and instant messaging, and opened the door to the interception of user information, passwords, and identities.
While the world now knows of the widespread havoc Heartbleed has caused to both businesses and individuals, it begs the question, “What happens when the next Heartbleed (or worse) comes along, and what can an organization do to weather yet another chapter in an all-too-familiar string of debilitating attacks?
Advances in attacks on network security over the last few years have led to many high-profile compromises of enterprise networks and breaches of data security. A new attack is threatening to expand the potential for attackers to compromise enterprise servers and the critical data on them. Solutions are available, and they will require action by company officers and administrators. “SSLStrip” and related attacks were among the highlights of the July 2009 Black Hat show in Las Vegas. Researcher Moxie Marlinspike combined a number of discrete problems, not all related to SSL, to create a credible scenario in which users attempting to work with secure websites were instead sent to malicious fake sites.

Old Log File analytics data was good – today's hosted on-demand Web analytics reporting is much better. What once was only understandable by IT personnel now has a place on the desktops of sales, marketing and business professionals. Read about the differences, and improvements, in analytics.
This IDC MarketScape includes vendors that create and sell software in the client virtualization space, with a focus on centralized virtual desktops, distributed virtual desktops, and virtual user session (VUS) software. Vendors that only offer user state virtualization and/or software products that support virtual client computing deployments but not one of the aforementioned products will not be included in the IDC MarketScape graphic or profiles. This is because these types of solutions address a specific or niche need in the market but do not, by themselves, provide a complete software solution that an end customer can purchase on a standalone basis or in addition to a Microsoft Server version.
