However, risk-averse enterprise IT professionals are understandably cautious about simply moving their entire IT portfolio of resources and services into a 100-percent cloud architecture. As with most technology-adoption curves, enterprises have not embraced an “all-or-nothing” paradigm, instead preferring a pragmatic, “evolution, not revolution” approach of cautious incrementalism. This helps them account for their existing investments, custom work, business requirements, and risk posture. Not everything will move to the cloud – at least not in the foreseeable future. That’s why so many IT professionals advocate a so-called “hybrid” approach. But what do we mean by “hybrid” and how do we optimally balance the various components of a hybrid cloud architecture?
This collection of insights, market trends and best practice recommendations, suggest ideas that are relevant for any organization evaluating or managing a hybrid cloud environment. NetApp enables unrestricted yet secure movement of data across any public and private clouds, allowing you to move to hybrid cloud architectures.
Download this report and find out how new hybrid cloud architectures enable you to take advantage of public cloud resources from Amazon, Microsoft, and others while keeping your enterprise firmly in the driver‘s seat. You’ll learn how you can benefit from the elastic compute power of public clouds and still maintain control over your company’s data.
Take a structured approach to designing your cloud applications. This cloud computing architecture e-book focuses on architecture, design, and implementation—considerations that apply no matter which cloud platform you choose. The guide includes steps for:
Choosing the right cloud application architecture style for your app or solution.
Selecting appropriate compute and data store technologies.
Incorporating 10 design principles to build a scalable, resilient, and manageable application.
Following the five pillars of software quality to ensure your cloud app is successful.
Using design patterns that specifically apply to the problem you’re trying to solve.
Download the 300-page cloud architecture e-book to explore these best practices, and get access to design review checklists, reference architectures, and more.
While it’s clear what the potentials of cloud computing are for your organization, it may be unclear the adjustments your IT organization will need to make in transitioning to the cloud.
This guide is designed to help your IT team more effectively implement and integrate cloud technologies. You’ll explore key cloud concepts as well as Azure-specific tips and tactics around:
General architectures that incorporate security, identity, and cloud design principles.
DevOps and how it fits with cloud technologies.
Integrating, planning, and managing cloud resources.
Microsoft Azure governance.

Cloud architectures. Remote access to big data. Application performance in an increasingly networked world. A renewed focus on DR/BC based on instant replication between multiple data centers. All are driving a need for more flexible WAN optimization that can be cost effectively deployed across both private and public networks.
The Enterprise Strategy Group discusses how data center consolidation, virtualization, and cloud architectures are on the rise; however IT budgets are not increasing. This poses a unique challenge: How do you crease a flexible and agile environment without increasing the cost? See ESG’s analysis of WAN optimization benefits and how your peers are increasing their ROI and lowering their TCO.
To streamline the process of maintaining desktop environments, many IT managers are turning to mobile-cloud first approaches to application and desktop delivery.
And if your business is in a similar transition, due to trends in BYOD, changing application delivery models, and worker mobility, your end-user computing environments could be becoming overly complex.
To combat this rising complexity, you need to consider implementing hybrid consumption models that work at scale and address security threats.
Read this white paper that details how the next generation of desktop architectures is taking mobility into account and how IT strategies are shifting from managing devices to managing users.

Cloud computing vendors and colocation data centers make every effort to maximize the scalability, efficiency and agility of their data centers. As a result, more and more of them are looking into replacing older, transformer-based centralized power protection schemes with distributed architectures in which uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) reside in the white space (or data hall).
This white paper describes the advantages of positioning UPSs in the white space as well as the essential qualities to look for in a white space-ready UPS.

Technology’s role in business and society has
shifted away from largely driving efficiencies to
innovating and creating engaging experiences
that attract and retain customers. Innovations and
business outcomes are fueled by a perfect storm
of technology trends in cloud, analytics, machine
learning, IoT and the emerging API Economy. The
convergence of these technologies has created
new opportunities for enterprises to improve
business performance by acquiring customers
faster while creating brand loyalty. The role of
technology expands the interaction with customers
beyond the core of the enterprise – away from
100% dependencies on systems of records –
and towards real-time, contextual interactions.
Businesses are a digital business or they are
evolving to become one. This requires enterprises
to re-think how they build software architectures.

Businesses are rapidly adopting virtualization, cloud infrastructure, and SaaS applications broadly across the enterprise to minimize costs and enable seamless collaboration and communication. This is significantly straining the traditional network paradigm. IT organizations globally are faced with the challenge to transform network architectures to deliver the right performance and reliability cost-effectively while retaining control.
Every ten to fifteen years, the types of workloads servers host swiftly shift. This happened with the first single-mission mainframes and today, as disruptive technologies appear in the form of big data, cloud, mobility and security. When such a shift occurs, legacy servers rapidly become obsolete, dragging down enterprise productivity and agility. Fortunately, each new server shift also brings its own suite of enabling technologies, which deliver new economies of scale and entire new computational approaches.
In this interview, long-time IT technologist Mel Beckman talks to HP Server CTO for ISS Americas Tim Golden about his take on the latest server shift, innovative enabling technologies such as software-defined everything, and the benefit of a unified management architecture. Tim discusses key new compute technologies such as HP Moonshot, HP BladeSystem, HP OneView and HP Apollo, as well as the superiority of open standards over proprietary architectures for scalable, cost-effect
Emerging technologies such as cloud computing are essential, not only for the consolidation of database applications but also for the storage, availability, security and performance of increasingly complex data warehousing architectures.
