The importance of healthcare providers to assure their patients the utmost security, confidentiality and integrity of their sensitive information cannot be understated. This means being HIPAA compliant within every aspect of their practice, with a particular emphasis on the components of their healthcare IT infrastructure
This white paper described elements and best practices of a HIPAA compliant data center. This comprehensive guide spans the administrative, physical, and technical safeguards of the HIPAA Security rule from the physical security and environmental controls necessary of the facility itself, to the requirements needed between a Covered Entity (CE) and the data center provider when outsourcing.
Detailing both the benefits and risks of a third-party partnership, this white paper provides answers to key questions such as what exactly makes a data center HIPAA compliant, what to look for when choosing a service provider to work with, and why a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) is important for establishing accountability with these partners.
Engagement with customers online has evolved from novelty to necessity, with an estimated $202 billion spent in 2011 and projected 10% growth to $327 billion in 2016, according to Forrester Research. Businesses are maneuvering to connect with the growing pool of online customers, but the move to eCommerce brings new security risks with the exchange of sensitive consumer information, including cardholder data and personally identifiable information that can enable identity theft. At stake is reputation of brand, ongoing access to merchant credit lines, and substantial penalties and remediation in the event of a breach.
This white paper elucidates the aspects of PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliance that must be considered when choosing a secure environment for servers involved in eCommerce. Whether deciding to outsource or keep data hosting in-house, any company collecting, storing or transmitting customer cardholder data needs to be compliant, and this document helps pinpoint the specific concerns and standards a company should be aware of when choosing how to keep their data secure. Understanding requirements and best practices for security policies and procedures, physical safeguards, and security technologies is essential to establishing cardholder data security and meeting QSA and SAQ audit requirements.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), with its over 200 requirements, can seem like a daunting set of regulations. Nonetheless, if your organization handles any kind of credit card information, you must be PCI DSS compliant. As difficult as this can seem, you can get expert help with our new eBook.
What’s needed today is storage that’s flexible enough to be used for both legacy IT and virtual systems environments and repurposed as new needs arise. Storage must be quickly expandable and must enable data and applications to be easily and securely migrated, with workloads automatically rebalanced. Applications need to be online 24 x 7, so high availability is paramount. Management of the entire storage pool, as well as coordination with virtualized servers and networking, must be streamlined and simplified. This Tech Dossier reveals how HP Converged Storage can meet your organizations storage requirements.
We now live in a flash centric world where all active data must be on flash. This doesn’t mean, however, that all data must be on flash. The best approach is to understand your application mix and workload requirements. Some key apps, like databases, are latency intolerant and should be pinned to flash. Others apps can benefit from fully-automated storage tiering. EMC’s market leading VMAX and VNX systems are flexible choices that can deliver all-flash and hybrid services. CDW and EMC has you covered!
Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time – but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server "footprint" size and overall electrical requirements, resulted in significant reductions in ongoing costs, or opex, per 100 end users supported.

Hyperconverged infrastructure is becoming a popular architecture choice, particularly for businesses consolidating infrastructure as part of a hybrid IT strategy to extend compute and storage resources outside the enterprise. At its current level of progress, HCI could soon become a foundation layer for the next generation of infrastructure at enterprises, midsized companies and remote deployments. Hybrid cloud is the next frontier for HCI, with most players looking to develop cloud orchestration and workload-migration capabilities to become hybrid cloud enablers for enterprises and service providers.
Today, many organizations still have questions and uncertainty about HCI:
What are the most effective uses of HCI today and in the future?

Although AI and big data have delivered advances in technology these past years which make remediation more manageable and more efficient, it’s important ensure that the solution you select, meets your particular requirements, addresses and meets your needs. Some jurisdictions require technology dealing with certain types of data to be hosted on-site; data hosting, exchange, protection and privacy can all affect the choice of solution or vendor. It’s common for companies to call out these specifics in their RFPs. Other considerations include the level of precision and recall (e.g., the accuracy) required to meet project needs, the setup time for a system, its implementation and the ability to support globally dispersed team members.
