Data continues to grow at an astounding pace? As a result, data center space is becoming more scarce, as more arrays are acquired to store all of this data. Along with this data taking up space, it is also utilizing a great deal of power and cooling. In fact, the average data center in the U.S. uses approximately 34,000 kW of electricity each year, costing $180,000 in annual energy costs. As Infinidat set out to revolutionize the storage industry, one of our goals was to help consumers of storage build a more sustainable infrastructure that would be not only better for the environment, but also help them to save money as well. All of our patents come together to form InfiniBox, a storage solution that does just this.

Enterprise IT is changing. It’s evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated. Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative. The evolution of IT requires a network that evolves along with IT’s changing requirements – a network that continuously adapts to ever-changing security threats, and evolving digitization, mobility, IoT and cloud requirements.
Building on 25 years of server market leadership, the HPE ProLiant Gen9 portfolio—which includes HPE OneView software for simplified, converged management—offers optimal performance, increased storage, reduced energy consumption, and greater visibility and control across IT environments. Now everyone from enterprises to small and medium businesses (SMBs) can lower the cost of IT services, reduce delivery times, and improve their overall performance to gain a competitive edge.

Understanding cloud environments and making decisions about multiloucd management can be complex. Questions arise, such as how organizations need to change in this multicloud world. Working with enterprise customers, IBM has identified ten key pain points and related best practices that help organizations successfully navigate these transformations. This covers the following key pain points:
• Cost transparency and visibility
• Dynamic, up-to-date Catalog
• IT to operate in two, connected models
• Standardized consumption
• Aggregated services for added value
• Integration remains a necessity
• Control without obstruction
• Challenges of user management
• Primary consumption: Machine-to-machine purchase
• Internal and external IT role changes

In the age of digital transformation and hybrid cloud, business expectations for seamless, personalized, always-on service run high. Technological advances such as cognitive capabilities and automation are blurring business distinctions and empowering competitors to emerge from any industry and geography. Staying ahead requires a willingness to change course and embrace constant reinvention.
To maintain its position at the forefront of international research, the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University wanted to develop a new high-performance computing cluster - find out how they did it.
As flash storage has permeated mainstream computing, enterprises are coming to better understand
not only its performance benefits but also the secondary economic benefits of flash deployment at
scale. This combination of benefits — lower latencies, higher throughput and bandwidth, higher
storage densities, much lower energy and floor space consumption, higher CPU utilization, the need
for fewer servers and their associated lower software licensing costs, lower administration costs, and
higher device-level reliability — has made the use of AFAs an economically compelling choice
relative to legacy storage architectures initially developed for use with hard disk drives (HDDs). As
growth rates for hybrid flash arrays (HFAs) and HDD-only arrays fall off precipitously, AFAs are
experiencing one of the highest growth rates in external storage today — a compound annual growth
rate (CAGR) of 26.2% through 2020.
In the past, Enterprise IT managed the back of?ce…the data center…the systems that kept the business running. Today, there is a mandate for IT to adopt a new role—one that speaks a common language with the business. This new IT mans the storefront,
interacts directly with customers and thinks beyond uptime metrics to give equal consideration to cost, spend, quality and consumption.

Cloud computing adoption continues to expand as the overall benefits of cloud (cost efficiency, self-service, and IT standardization) are becoming more broadly recognized. While private cloud is the primary type of cloud infrastructure that is in use today, organizations are finding that cloud can no longer be a standalone IT sourcing and consumption model. Enterprises demand greater flexibility and scalability, leading them to invest in hybrid cloud models, which supply them with a seamless application, data, and management environment across all of their IT resources. IDC expects that the percentage of users who adopt private or public cloud models will diminish over the next several years, as enterprises increasingly choose to implement a hybrid cloud model.
The digital transformation that organizations are striving for today requires a mindset of "no limits" in terms of securely exposing critical business assets for internal and external consumption. In order to be an agile, digital business, enterprises need to seamlessly connect across hybrid environments, applications, data and processes, keeping a keen eye on an open cloud strategy. They also need a secure integration framework to provide controlled access, a single dashboard providing performance insights, and easy access to digital assets for your developers. This webcast will explore all of these areas in depth, to support your enterprise's quest to become a next-generation digital business.

Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system.
This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.
As business requirements drive the need for a hybrid cloud strategy, companies must determine how best to run their applications and manage their data—whether in their private data center, near the cloud, or in the cloud. Hyperscale cloud providers offer excellent flexibility by allowing customers to buy raw resources in a consumption model by the hour.
