A greater dependence on cloud-based applications means businesses must rethink the level of redundancy of the physical infrastructure equipment (power, cooling, networking) remaining
on-premise, at the “Edge”.
An examination of those organizations using web services successfully and find that they have chosen their networking infrastructure carefully and taken advice about future upgrade strategies.
SDN and NFV
We look at whether software defined networking (SDN) or network functions virtualization (NFV) will solve the problem of the sheer volume of new applications, and when they are likely to fulfil their promise.

We take a look at why the rapid growth in cloud Services could very well be a big help for co-location – a sector which is still growing very nicely thank you.
Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.
The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Hyperconverged infrastructure is radically shaking up the IT landscape, creating huge operational and economic benefits. Tier 1 applications such as Exchange, SQL Server, Oracle and others are among the many beneficiaries of this new generation of infrastructure. However, there are many vendors jumping on the market bandwagon, and not all systems that are marketed as hyperconverged really fit the criteria. IT organizations need to do their homework to ensure they are selecting true hyperconverged solutions.
When your solution needs deep packet inspection (DPI) application awareness as a key enabling feature, highly reliable and accurate identification of network traffic and applications - in real time - is an expected requirement. Whether it’s for software defined networks to enable policy control and critical traffic steering or to protect corporate networks, IoT devices, and cloud platforms from malicious attacks, it’s crucial to choose the right DPI solution.
When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.

For a backup solution to be considered flexible, it needs to satisfy
several key business requirements. It should integrate seamlessly
with any servers you’re running and provide full support for
all the applications your business uses. It should enable you to
protect assets in different parts of the country or overseas. And
it should let you manage and monitor backups from anywhere.
A flexible backup solution gives you everything you need to
protect the technology investments you make now and in the
future. So instead of having to buy multiple solutions to support
your changing needs, you can have a single solution that adapts
to fit your environment. We call that flexible deployment.
L’économie des applications oblige les entreprises à se transformer. Pour saisir de nouvelles opportunités de croissance, elles s’ouvrent sur l’extérieur et partagent des données et applications sélectionnées avec des développeurs, des partenaires, des appareils mobiles, le Cloud et l’Internet des objets. Cette transformation contribue à redonner de la valeur aux données héritées : dans l’économie des applications, une organisation qui parvient à exploiter ces données d’une nouvelle manière pourra faire émerger de nouvelles opportunités de revenus.
As security threats increase and government regulations require more control over users and data, it is important for organizations to evolve their security measures. As enterprises rapidly expand their footprints into cloud, mobile and social, they must ensure that the right users have the right access to sensitive data and applications. Strong as well as optimized identities are becoming increasingly important as insider threat and tightened regulations become more prevalent.
Internally developed software applications support the most sensitive and strategically important business processes of most enterprises. Yet application security is one of the most neglected fields of cybersecurity.
Are you up-to-speed with the latest trends in mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) application security testing? Our recent Ponemon Institute study reveals key findings about organizations' ability to protect their mobile and IoT apps. Read our report to learn how well you stack up against your peers in securing your most critical mobile and IoT applications.

Clearly, data centre modernisation can achieve a wide variety of business benefits for an equally wide variety of organisations. Data centre modernisation programmes are also far reaching. They reach way beyond the desire to merely reduce costs. They add significant business value, and often become the essential cornerstone of digital transformation.
When starting on your own path towards modernisation, it’s vital to recognise that your success depends on making use of advanced public cloud services that sit at the vanguard of enterprise technology’s capabilities. If they don’t, you risk not being able to gain access to a world of new possibilities.
