When considering data center security, you will need to decide which security functions need to be deployed and where you want to deploy them. These functions are expected to be implemented wherever a firewall is used.
Read our eGuide to find out which security functions to deploy, and where to deploy them, including:
• Next-generation firewalls
• Intrusion prevention systems
• Centralized security management
These are interesting and challenging times to be in business. Digital forces, such as the cloud, big data, mobility, and mobile apps are disrupting tried-and-true business models, as well as entire industries.
These transformational advances are producing complexity, while workers are demanding simplicity. They require centralized infrastructures to keep information safe, even as agility and flexibility rule the day.

The Edge Completes the Cloud
Edge computing delivers the decentralized complement to today’s hyperscale cloud and legacy data centers. To maximize application potential and user experience, enterprise architects and technology innovation leaders need to plan distributed computing solutions.
Enabling this thinking is that although the cloud is becoming mainstream, that does not imply that all workloads will be placed in the cloud during the next decade or so. Technical incompatibilities, decades of embedded business logic in mainframe applications, government regulations and simple economics all conspire to keep some workloads out of the cloud, driving us toward a hybrid multi cloud future.
This white paper and accompanying webcast highlight what makes VisiBroker the best fit for mission critical needs, and how its intelligent engineering delivers high throughput and reliability for both server-centric and decentralized application architectures, and onto the cloud.

In today’s digitally disrupted economy, organizations across industries face competition at unparalleled heights. As a result, differentiation through business automation has become synonymous with convenience and speed.
However, since the technology landscape is changing at an increasing pace, business automation shouldn’t be thought of as a one-time, centralized effort in a discrete process. Rather, organizations should view business automation as a way to decentralize access to systems and enable the broader organization.

Staples’ information systems play a critical role in delivering on their brand promise 'that was easy.' As part of a recent strategic imperative, Staples recently embarked on a major modernization of its systems architecture and supporting processes. The goal was to ensure IT’s systems could scale with the company’s continued global expansion without sacrificing the quality of the brand experience. One critical target for modernization was Staples’ enterprise job scheduling processes and systems. After researching the top software providers in this space, Staples selected Tidal Software to support its efforts to centralize and streamline automated batch processing.
Windows Server 2008 includes the Hyper-V role, which is a hypervisor that enables server virtualization. This new virtualization hypervisor enables a Windows Server 2008 system to host many VMs or child partitions that run directly on the hypervisor layer. Hyper-V servers and VMs can be centrally managed by System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) to enable centralized management and advanced features. This demo video shows Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM).
Data is changing the way organizations manage, consume, and deliver storage. Many legacy applications, however, are still in traditional storage silos, where data is tied to specific vendor storage and not easily configurable and monitored. EMC ViPR is the lightweight, software-only solution that centralizes, automates, and transforms storage into a simple, extensible and open platform.

When voice moves into the cloud, enterprise communications rapidly becomes a strategic function that drives revenue. A reliable, business-grade solution that integrates Voice over IP with hosted Unified Communications can help you lower total cost of ownership,enable self-management,improve productivity,streamline business continuity and free up IT resources to focus on more important requirements. Read how Hosted PBX with Unified Communications can help your enterprise integrate complex voice and IT environments, centralize voice applications, and take advantage of the productivity and cost savings of hosted communications.
Download this white paper to learn 7 reasons why you should centralize your communications.
- Lower fixed costs
- Less "stranded" bandwith
- Free site-to-site calling
- Simplified business continuity planning
- Reduced staffing requirements
- Consistent feature set across sites
- Centralized management
For contact centers, it's getting easier to consolidate and centralize communications architectures and realize the benefits. Obviously, there are fewer applications and physical boxes to be administered and maintained.
Improving access to core applications and data is just one of many mandates facing IT, along with improving collaboration, reducing administration costs and improving performance. Fortunately, shops running System z have an advantage. You can integrate and enhance your System z assets faster when you use the version 6.1 update to IBM WebSphere Portal on z/OS. Use it to quickly deploy business applications across the enterprise, reduce costs and increase flexibility with workloads centralized on System z.
Although hardware storage prices have come down, storage administration and software expenses still run about seven times the cost of storage hardware. Storage consolidation provides a partial solution by expanding device connectivity and reducing points of management. However, once storage is consolidated, the job is only half done. You still need a centralized, flexible method of management that masks the complexity of the storage environment and reduces administrative overhead. That’s where virtualization fits in.

Peters' and Waterman's well-known book 'In Search of Excellence', a study of some of the most well-managed companies in the United States at that time, was one of the best-known business books of the 1980s. In the book, the authors identified eight common themes which they argued were responsible for the success of the included corporations. These attributes included hands-on management, centralized values accompanied by entrepreneurial productivity, and focusing on the core business (sticking to the knitting).

In this paper, Zebra shows how a solid device management solution can provide consistency and visibility into device status to maximize uptime and business efficiencies. Ensuring visibility of all assets whether they are directly on premise or at remote locations is another key benefit-for both IT and finance. Doing so helps maximize productivity where the devices are used, streamlines inventory management and compliance operations, and helps to create a more agile enterprise.
A critical step in moving from a shared virtualized environment toward a private cloud is the transition from infrastructure optimization to service optimization. NetApp’s design approach, technologies, and ecosystem integration build upon our storage efficiencies to deliver service-level efficiencies using centralized, policy-based management and automation. With NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, an efficient service-oriented approach can be implemented that enables storage provisioning, data protection, and operational processes to be integrated and automated. As a result, enterprises can meet workload service-level requirements while greatly reducing management costs and improving business agility.
Companies of all sizes with multiple remote locations can benefit from plug-and-play next-generation firewalls. Traditional methods can take a long time to implement and can prove expensive.
