"Today’s data centers are being asked to do more at less expense and with little or no disruption to company operations. They’re also expected to run 24x7, handle numerous new application deployments and manage explosive data growth. Data storage limitations can make it difficult to meet these stringent demands.
Faced with these challenges, CIOs are discovering that the “rip and replace” disruptive migration method of improving storage capacity and IO performance no longer works. Access this white paper to discover a new version of NetApps storage operating environment. Find out how this software update eliminates many of the problems associated with typical monolithic or legacy storage systems."
"Today, enormous amounts of data are being created from a variety of sources, such as applications, new mobile devices, big data analytics, and the cloud. This is changing the speed with which business gets conducted and the scale in which it occurs. Moreover, the digital explosion shows no sign of slowing and IDC expects the amount of data being stored to grow in excess of 50% per year over the next few years.
Discover how flash technology is being deployed to improve performance and efficiency for these demanding environments. Access this IDC whitepaper to learn more about the role of flash technology and the importance of flash solutions that are designed specifically for the enterprise."

To enable always-on application access and business connectivity, you need a rock-solid network foundation. The increasingly complex, dynamic and fluid relationship between networks and devices requires a new approach to IP Address Management (IPAM) – one that unifies mobile security, address management, automation and self-service to provide actionable network intelligence and a broad span of control. This paper discusses the critical role of IPAM in providing a smarter way to connect mobile devices, applications, virtual environments and clouds.
Emerging data center models are based on flexibility and non-disruptive, on-demand scalability. Infrastructure must not only support these capabilities, but be able itself to provide these same benefits and capabilities. F5 ScaleN is a breakthrough in high availability and scalability, offering the robust capabilities required to enable multi-tenant solutions, elastic applications, and infrastructure for any environment.
The use of SSL encryption for all enterprise Internet traffic is growing steadily. Applications that make use of SSL – such as SharePoint, Exchange, WebEx, Salesforce.com and Google Apps – are commonplace. Even email applications like Gmail, Yahoo, and Zimbra are being used in workplace environments as hosted email or BYOD apps.
It’s clear that organizations now need complete visibility into the SSL traffic coming across the WAN. They need the ability to preserve complete network and web histories from encrypted network and web traffic for compliance, regulatory and logging requirements. Blue Coat has solutions today to address the SSL dilemma.
Virtualization was supposed to be the disruptive technology that saved IT. The cost savings from consolidation and the ease at which applications can be deployed promised to vastly improve delivery of IT services, free up IT staff to work on other projects, and not strain budgets.
Unfortunately, lack of insight into IT resource status in highly virtualized environments and the complexity of the interactions between server, storage, and network elements have added to IT staff manual workloads and led most companies to dedicate too much time to operations and not enough time to innovation. This basically negates the major benefits of virtualization.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has conducted extensive research investigating the integration and management challenges created by the convergence of on-premise and public Cloud hosted applications. Research conducted in mid-2012 uncovered some compelling statistics about the role of Cloud integration in today's companies:
Nearly 50% of the companies surveyed have already deployed tiered transactions spanning public Cloud and on-premise computing environments (one form of "hybrid Cloud")
Approximately 35% have integrated (or are in the process of integrating) multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
As one IT professional put it, "Everything is connected to everything." Because of this fact, any discussionof public Cloud as a standalone technology is outmoded. Few modern on-premise applications exist as"silos," and the same is true of Cloud-delivered applications.
