The retail sector is increasingly difficult and volatile. Enterprises must adopt easily available technology to liberate themselves from the daily grind and better focus on achieving their core business objectives. To be cost-effective in doing this, retailers turn to Google Cloud Platform, the most affordable, reliable, innovative and intuitive cloud platform in the world, to drive operational agility and optimization of application performance.
As the first managed services partner for Google Cloud Platform, and Google Cloud’s 2018 Global Migration Partner of the Year, Rackspace is helping retailers everywhere to accelerate innovation and cost savings, by taking over their intensive, day-to-day operations of the cloud.
This e-book looks at how different retail brands work with Rackspace to ensure smooth and easy migration and operation on Google Cloud, as well as to gain added value from Rackspace’s depth of knowledge and best practices to effectively tap Google Cloud Platform too
"Cloud first" mandates accelerate cloud adoption within an enterprise and across enterprises looking at what their peers are doing.
As enterprises work to balance innovation with efficiency—and increasingly adopt cloud-first strategies—agility is key. In this IDC InfoBrief, sponsored by Red Hat, learn 4 key capabilities supporting cloud adoption and agile integration approaches that offer faster, more flexible workflows.
IDC recommends 4 critical technology cornerstones:
- Modular development: Microservices
- Deployment portability: Containers
- Standardization of service interfaces: APIs and API management
- Decentralized connectivity: Hybrid integration

Organizations face onboarding risks of BYOS (Bring Your Own Service) as they hire new employees that bring their own cloud services into the work environment. Risks facing IT and security teams include protecting corporate data and defending against modern threats. While IT and Security teams want to adopt modern cloud applications and increase business agility, they also want to implement visibility and monitoring to protect corporate data and comply to security policies. This session will highlight how new methodologies available today enable organizations to discover sanctioned and un-sanctioned cloud services that are being used within their organization, and how they can apply consistent security policies across the public and private cloud to protect corporate data and conform to compliance policies.
Today, applications facilitate commerce on a global scale. They play a key role in delivering products and services to customers, a role that directly affects the success of the business. Companies that rapidly deploy, update, and manage business applications have a competitive advantage.
To maintain this fast pace, many organizations have adopted a hybrid cloud—a combination of private and public clouds—to become more agile.
But true agility isn’t easy
Organizations that automate their highly-virtualized infrastructure environments discover that they are able to introduce new forms of self-service and on-demand IT delivery models. As a result, they’re far better positioned to compete in a world where the quality and performance of applications increasingly dictates success and failure.
On the journey to agility, the ultimate destination remains infrastructure defined by software and operating in a way that’s both application-aware and self-healing. For enterprises competing in the digital economy, deploying a CMP to manage increasingly complex infrastructure has become an indispensable part of that journey.

Leading technology conglomerate had to renew the current data center agreement, also it was no longer strategic to maintain their own hardware. LTI partnered with Oracle and helped in designing and executing the migration plan that would ensure Zero business disruption without stringent timeline. LTI leveraged a toolkit built by its in-house, dedicated Oracle Innovation and Solution Center (OISC) to help ensure an error-free migration. Download complete case study.
Cloud computing and all-flash storage are two of the most important innovations driving next-generation IT initiatives. While it may seem at first that these are parallel trends, in reality they are inextricably intertwined. Without the benefits of all-flash storage —driving new levels of performance, agility and management simplicity — enterprises would not be able to modernize their infrastructures to deliver cloud services. It is no coincidence that the largest hyperscale cloud providers rely on all-flash storage solutions as their storage foundation.
Pure Storage all-flash storage arrays provide enterprise customers with a safe, secure and smooth path to the all-flash cloud. You can take the journey in stages, starting small with a single application or two, and then adding more applications through consolidation and virtualization. You can also implement multiple stages at once.
Businesses increasingly see cloud as the best route to enhanced agility and digital transformation. But this survey reveals that keeping the lid on cloud costs is far from straightforward.
Read this report to discover:
• whether businesses are realising the benefits they anticipated from cloud migration
• how effective companies are at managing cloud investments
• the risks and consequences of getting locked into inefficient architectures.

Understanding, managing and containing risk has become a critical factor for many organizations as they plot their hybrid architecture strategy. Access by an expanding array of privileged identities looms large as a risk concern once organizations look beyond tactically using cloud services for cost and agility efficiencies. Existing approaches developed for static infrastructure can address initial risk concerns, but fall short in providing consistent policy enforcement and continuous visibility for dynamic, distributed infrastructure.
Enterprise customers can take advantage of the many benefits provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to achieve business agility, cost savings, and high availability by running their SAP environments on the AWS Cloud.
Many Enterprise customers run SAP production workloads on AWS today; including those that run on NON-SAP DBs (Oracle, MS SQL, DB2) or on SAP DBs (SAP HANA, SAP ASE). To support the demand of high memory instances, AWS have disclosed their SAP HANA instance roadmap (8TB and 16TB in 2018) and just made 4TB x1e instances available. A few examples of how AWS helped SAP customers cut costs, improve performance and agility include BP reducing 1/3 of their SAP infrastructure cost, Zappos successfully migrating to SAP HANA on AWS in less than 48 hours and enabling a major Healthcare and Life Science company to run BW on HANA with 30% better performance vs. on premise.
This guide is intended for SAP customers and partners who want to learn about the benefits and options for running SAP solutions on AWS, or who want to know how to implement and operate their SAP environment effectively on AWS.
As the information technology (IT) industry enters the cloud era, where hybrid IT is the dominant deployment model in organizations of all sizes, the capabilities of primary all-flash arrays (AFAs) will need to evolve to handle cloud scale and agility
