For many enterprises, the data center powering their workflow is located someplace far removed from where the people using it are located. Typically the data center is either close to inexpensive power, or located in a facility that is off campus somewhere not necessarily convenient to those administering and using it. This brief explores remote power management as a way of ensuring that your data center works for you and not the other way around.

As our businesses become increasingly digital, we tend to think about technology in non-physical terms. Our IT infrastructure becomes “the cloud.” Our servers and storage become “virtual.” Our networks become “software-defined.”
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.
Inside information from Juniper Networks on how to avoid that cyberattack and if you can’t – how to neutralize it.
Internet of Things
How will you deal with the 1.6 zettabytes of data the Internet of Things is preparing to throw your way? Get your smart spectacles out and read how!
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.
It has been obvious for some time that the power distribution system within the data center is the key opportunity to focus upon in order to actively manage the rising costs of power and more specifically, identify problems and waste in real-time.
With future-thinking organizations sharing knowledge between Facilities and IT, the push for more intelligence within this rack-based power infrastructure has become urgent with higher rack power densities. In fact, proactive power management at all stages in the distribution chain within enterprise data centers has become the requirement to feed efficiency studies and data center infrastructure management (DCIM) style optimization initiatives.
"Extracting value from data is central to the digital
transformation required for businesses to succeed
in the decades to come. Buried in data are insights
that reveals what your customers need and how
they want to receive it, how sales, manufacturing,
distribution, and other aspects of business operations
are functioning, what risks are arising to threaten
the business, and more. That insight empowers your
businesses to reach new customers, develop and
deliver new products, to operate more efficiently
and more effectively, and even to develop new
business models. "
The bar for success is rising in higher education. University leaders and IT administrators are aware of the compelling benefits of digital transformation overall—and artificial intelligence (AI) in particular. AI can amplify human capabilities by using machine learning, or deep learning, to convert the fast-growing and plentiful sources of data about all aspects of a university into actionable insights that drive better decisions. But when planning a transformational strategy, these leaders must prioritize operational continuity. It’s critical to protect the everyday activities of learning, research, and administration that rely on the IT infrastructure to consistently deliver data to its applications.
Powerful IT doesn’t have to be complicated. Hyperconvergence puts your entire virtualized infrastructure and advanced data services into one integrated powerhouse. Deploy HCI on an intelligent fabric that can scale with your business and you can hyperconverge the entire IT stack. This guide will help you: Understand the basic tenets of hyperconvergence and the software-defined data center; Solve for common virtualization roadblocks; Identify 3 things modern organizations want from IT; Apply 7 hyperconverged tactics to your existing infrastructure now.
The term outsourcing can have a negative connotation,
conjuring images of layoffs and relocating jobs to third parties
in remote locations. However, outsourcing can take many
forms, and finance and accounting outsourcing (FAO) does
not always mean the displacing of the finance back office.
Specifically, FAO leverages digital technology to complement
and support the back office, streamlining processes while
providing enhanced transaction processing, reporting and
analytics capabilities. It also allows key resources to focus on
strategy, analysis and decision-making.

As a modern marketer, you’re always looking for ways to improve your efficiency at work, especially in the form of software that makes some part of your job easier. You’ve likely heard a lot lately about AI in marketing and how it promises to do just that – and more, of course. In fact, it’s pretty hard to avoid the topic of AI and all the ways it is destined to change marketing as we know it. You may already know that companies who have adopted AI boast about the results: increased conversions, engagement, and a host of other metrics. With such decisive evidence, everybody must be aware of AI and clearly sees its business potential, right? Then you go to your Chief Marketing Officer to strike up an informal conversation where you can strategically recommend the technology, and it starts off great — your CMO is well aware of AI and what it could do for the business. You’re thinking, “What luck! I might not have to put up much of an argument.” Then your CMO says, “But you’re not a data

Application programming interfaces, or APIs, are the way software talks to other software—so
by definition, they’re a technology that connects systems. Many enterprise leaders think of them
primarily in these terms. For example, 57 percent of respondents to Google’s enterprise digital
maturity assessment tool, Apigee Compass, characterize APIs as systems integration technology.

Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) is a major breakthrough in network function virtualization (NFV). When
asked where they have deployed NFV in production networks, communication service providers (CSPs) consistently name vEPC as one of the top answers. Why is that?
In order to maximize their processing capacity, CSPs virtualize a subset of their network applications, including
mobile edge computing (MEC), base stations (small/macro
cells) and the mobile core, because these systems use a
The mobile packet core builds the foundation of the core
network on which mobile CSPs offer IP-based services to
their customers. Implementing vEPC solutions can help
CSPs obtain the scale necessary to accommodate growing
numbers of subscribers and large amounts of traffic or
connections while controlling costs and improving on quality of experience (QoE). In the past, evolved packet core
(EPC) solutions were deployed on purpose-built hardware.

Application-aware vEPC is the key to SDN/NFV service deployments. Deep packet inspection software provides granular network data, which lays the foundation for application awareness in mobile networks.

For Japan’s largest medical equipment wholesaler, Mutoh, ensuring its 300,000 products reach hospitals, clinics and health-centres on time is an imperative. Someone’s life depends on it.
Without IT that wouldn’t be possible. But Mutoh’s IT infrastructure was unable to keep pace with the demands of the business. Every time an order came in, Mutoh had to pull data from different systems across multiple servers which was time-consuming.
It needed an IT infrastructure that was fast, high-performing, reliable, stable, and flexible.
Mutoh turned to Lenovo’s hyperconverged infrastructure that helped the company achieve:
• The ability to seamlessly extract data from different systems across multiple physical servers helped Mutoh respond to customer orders as quickly as possible, thereby saving lives
• A modular hyperconverged solution allowed Mutoh to invest on a need basis, improving ROI and addressing spikes in customer demand
