The need for reliable hardware that can maintain continuous uptime 24/7 is even more important in a virtual infrastructure. If you are planning to use virtualization to implement business continuity or disaster recovery, ensuring you have the most reliable hardware is essential.
The Choices from many reputable suppliers of IT managed services can appear very much alike. Yet when you have a mission-critical business process whose function must not be interrupted, you know your requirements call for something above and beyond. This paper serves as a field guide to help you identify key characteristics that set a critical managed IT service apart from even highly capable general-purpose offerings.
Certainly server virtualization offers an elegant way to minimize planned downtime during routine software and hardware maintenance, or scheduled upgrades. But that addresses only part of the availability story.
The long migration to electronic health records (EHRs) in the U.S. is set to speed up with the funding authorized by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009. But what are the specific risks when clinicians can’t access electronic health records? How far-reaching are the consequences when EHR data is lost, or its integrity is compromised? This paper looks at the mission-critical role of EHR systems, and introduces availability solutions that build in uptime protection to ensure the continuity of operation that both caregivers and patients can depend on.
Cloud computing allows companies to use IT resources as a service, taking advantage of shared applications, processing and storage managed within the cloud - either inside a private cloud at an internal data center, or in an external cloud at a service provider. Greater robustness of the virtualized servers supporting this new IT model will ensure a resilient cloud infrastructure capable of delivering "on-demand" access to users.

Many small and medium-sized businesses do not have adequate network security. Here's how to make sure you do. Now more than ever, you depend on your network for your most important business operations, such as communication, inventory, billing, sales, and trading with partners. Yet up to now, you might have held off on protecting your network, for several reasons.
For small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), the impacts of a disaster can result in loss of or lack of access to data, applications, and work facilities. Those with disaster recovery plans in place fared much better than those without such contingency plans.
Unlike others, Tripwire solutions identify the events that matter most-those that pose the real security risks or take you out of compliance. And they help you discover those events immediately, while you can still contain the damage.
Managing the security and uptime of a Windows network requires you to master your Active Directory, the brain and heart of the network, with maximum efficiency. Active Administrator makes it simpler and faster than native Windows tools to exceed compliance regulations, tighten security, increase productivity, and improve business continuity.

Intelligent N+X Redundancy, Placement Affinities, & Future Proofing in the Virtualized Data Center
Virtualization brought about the ability to simplify business continuity management in IT. Workload portability and data replication capabilities mean that physical infrastructure failures no longer need impact application services, and they can rapidly be recovered even in the event of complete site failure.
However, Enterprises and Service Providers face new challenges ensuring they have enough compute capacity in their virtualized data centers to support their business continuity requirements, while at the same time not over provisioning infrastructure capacity resulting in unnecessary capital expenditure.
