This paper introduces five architectural principles guiding the development of the next generation data center (NGDC). It describes key market influences leading a fundamental enterprise IT transformation and the technological trends that support it. The five principles are: scale-out, guaranteed performance, automated management, data assurance, and global efficiencies. Cloud infrastructure delivery models such as IaaS, private clouds, and software-defined data centers (SDDC) are foundations for the NGDC. In an era where IT is expected to ensure productiongrade support with a plethoric flow of new applications and data, these models demonstrate how to eliminate bottlenecks, increase self-service, and move the business forward. The NGDC applies a software-defined everything (SDx) discipline in a traditional, hardware-centric business to gain business advantage.
To maximize the benefits of its next-generation systems and successfully execute its information strategy, CU had to overcome its aging network. Most of CU’s network infrastructure, which was built from solutions by another vendor, was introduced in 2007, when its computing center was first built. Over time, the equipment began to fail, affecting the stability of applications which relied on network connectivity. Technical support also became a major issue as the equipment faced obsolescence and maintenance contracts with vendors expired.
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.
Storing data is critical. Everyone stores data. Today, it’s all about how you use the data you’re storing and if you’re storing the right data. The right mix of data and the ability to analyze it against all data types is driving markets worldwide in what is known as digital transformation.
Digital transformation requires storing, accessing, and analyzing all types of data as fast and efficiently as possible. The end goal is to derive insights and gain a competitive advantage by using those insights to move faster and deliver smarter products and services than your competition.

Oracle Engineered Systems are architected to work as a unified whole, so organizations can hit the ground running after deployment. Organizations choose how they want to consume the infrastructure: on-premises, in a public cloud, or in a public cloud located inside the customer’s data center and behind their firewall using Oracle’s “Cloud at Customer” offering. Oracle Exadata and Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (Recovery Appliance) offer an attractive alternative to do-it-yourself deployments. Together, they provide an architecture designed for scalability, simplified management, improved cost of ownership, reduced downtime, zero-data loss, and an increased ability to keep software updated with security and patching.

"Security-conscious organizations face a gap between current
requirements and capabilities as they relate to data masking. Data volumes are growing exponentially and the risk of data leaks continues to make news, yet many organizations rely on inefficient, legacy approaches to protecting sensitive data. In contrast, top performing companies are turning to virtual databases and service-based masking solutions to ensure that data management functions can keep up with software development.

IBM’s Spectrum Protect offering boasts more than 20 years of achievement in the protection and recovery of key IT systems. So, it would be easy to suppose that IBM’s new Spectrum Protect Plus and Spectrum Copy Data Management software offerings simply represent “Spectrum Protect with extra features.” That assumption would be incorrect. They are standalone, reimagined approaches aiming to solve a daunting IT challenge—virtualization protection/recovery—and aspiring to attain a coveted IT outcome—effective data management and enablement (DM&E), referred to by many as “copy data management” (CDM).
