"Managing infrastructure has always brought with it frustration, headaches and wasted time. That’s because IT professionals have to spend their days, nights and weekends dealing with problems that are
disruptive to their applications and organization and manually tune their infrastructure. And, the challenges increase as the number of applications and reliance on infrastructure continues to grow.
Luckily, there is a better way. HPE InfoSight is artificial intelligence (AI) that predicts and prevents problems across the infrastructure stack and ensures optimal performance and efficient resource use.
"The Enterprise Strategy Group put HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure through its paces in a series of hands-on performance and stress tests simulating real-world configurations and load conditions.
Read this report to learn how an HPE SimpliVity infrastructure:
Ran nine workloads simultaneously, with an average response time across all applications of 3.9ms
Showed little to no performance impact as a virtual controller, drive, and node were systematically failed on a two-node cluster."
In order to keep pace with the growth of business mobility without falling prey to its potential risks, IT must be able to efficiently address complex issues ranging from service provisioning, device procurement, and security oversight. Why? Information workers need access to often sensitive information across a wide range of business applications and devices from wherever they are. In other words, security and privacy policies that doesn’t impede end-user productivity will empower workers and boost their performance.
In July 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester to conduct a study of the 21st century workforce and how their new habits, attitudes, and workstyles are reshaping the world of work. With more personas in a single organization to cater to, businesses are failing to deliver against workforce demands. To get their tasks done, workers are circumventing security policies to get what they want, in their moment of need. Organizations have to understand the different behaviors across

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

Organizations are adopting cloud computing to accelerate service delivery. Some try to deliver cloud economies of scale in their private data centers with the mantra “automate everything,” a philosophy often simpler in theory than practice. Others have opted to leverage public cloud resources for the added benefit of the pay-as-you-go model, but are finding it difficult to keep costs in check. Regardless of approach, cloud technology poses the same challenge IT has faced for decades: how to assure application performance while minimizing costs.

The goal of usability testing, simply put, is to make sure that a user can complete the tasks they are expected to
complete. Usability testing doesn’t test whether or not the functions of the application, website or connected device work correctly, but rather that a user intuitively understands how to perform these tasks — and how easy or difficult it was to do so.
With usability testing, “close enough” won’t cut it. A product may have a superior architecture, a great set of features, good performance, scalability and a number of other positive attributes. However, all of this effort is wasted if the user experience is inadequate. An application, website or connected device that is not user-friendly is just as bad
as a buggy version and can lead to diminished revenue, product abandonment or a total failure. An application with poor usability can also negatively affect a brand

This IDC study considered the experiences of firms using Cisco UCS as an infrastructure platform for their BDA applications. The study found that Cisco UCS contributed to the strong value the firms are achieving with their business operations through scalability, performance, time to market, and cost effectiveness. As a result, these firms directly attributed business benefits to the manner in which Cisco UCS is deployed in the infrastructure.
The tipping point has arrived. Large enterprises are planning their next-generation datacenters around flash-based storage, and for good reason. Flash arrays provide read and write performance that is orders of magnitude faster than spinning media at a total cost of ownership that is on par with disk and will soon be lower. The benefits not only include improved application performance, but more consistent performance, lower latency, reduced storage footprint, streamlined storage administration, and lower operating costs. These advantages are too beneficial to your business to ignore. That’s why flash is becoming the standard for new storage investments.
Dans cette ère de disruption numérique incessante, les entreprises doivent améliorer leur agilité pour être prêtes à saisir les opportunités. Pour certains observateurs, les technologies du cloud semblaient être la solution idéale, capables d'apporter des réponses en matière d'agilité, d'évolutivité et de coût. Mais après avoir adopté ces technologies, les entreprises ont souvent constaté que les caractéristiques de performances, de sécurité et de conformité du cloud ne répondaient pas pleinement à leurs besoins. En outre, une idée reçue tenace laissait à penser que le cloud public était moins coûteux que le cloud privé, alors que nous savons maintenant que ce n'est pas toujours le cas. Les entreprises les plus avisées ont réalisé depuis longtemps que la plus grande agilité est proposée par les solutions d'informatique hybride, qui associent des services hors site et sur site.
