Just a few years ago, many organizations turned to private cloud environments to help increase flexibility and control costs—largely because of the immaturity and lack of control within the public cloud environments then available. Today, however, the decision to “go cloud” is less of a binary, and more of a spectrum of choices, spanning different deployment models (public, private and hybrid) and service types, including IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.
In this paper we describe effective data center pod frame containment systems and demonstrate how they can reduce time to deploy by 21% and reduce capital costs by 15% compared to traditional methods and containment systems.

"Today’s data centers are being asked to do more at less expense and with little or no disruption to company operations. They’re also expected to run 24x7, handle numerous new application deployments and manage explosive data growth. Data storage limitations can make it difficult to meet these stringent demands.
Faced with these challenges, CIOs are discovering that the “rip and replace” disruptive migration method of improving storage capacity and IO performance no longer works. Access this white paper to discover a new version of NetApps storage operating environment. Find out how this software update eliminates many of the problems associated with typical monolithic or legacy storage systems."
There are a number of benefits beyond total cost of ownership to deploy cloud ERP, including increased flexibility, deployment, busines continuity and usability. Plex was in the Cloud before Cloud was cool - helping manufacturers run their business from the shop floor to the top floor.
This paper examines that there are all sorts of elements—differing applications, attitudes, budgets, outcomes for the business—that go into the decision of how much and what type of solid-state storage to use. And how this large range of use cases inherently means that users are going to need a portfolio of solid-state deployment options because no single product is going to solve everything for everyone. The paper then examines NetApp’s flash portfolio and belief that the right storage solution at all times balances performance, capacity, functionality and manageability: this means that for flash too, multiple approaches will become the standard for enterprises as they evolve their long-term IT strategies.

While file sharing proliferates in the enterprise environment, the unsecure and unsanctioned deployment of file sharing technologies poses significant risk to organizations.
Extensive new research conducted by Ponemon Institute in North America and Europe, sponsored by Intralinks, reveals that individuals are behaving badly, organizations are addressing the challenges inadequately, and IT professionals feel a loss of control.
Here is just a sample of the results:
• Half of all respondents lack the confidence to deal with risky file sharing practices
• 62% of respondents accidently sent files to unauthorized individuals outside the organization
• 70% of organizations do not conduct regular audits to determine if file sharing activities are in compliance with regulations

• The extent of the risk associated with unsecure file sharing

"Mobile and cloud deployment issues are dominating the concerns of organizations today. End-user mobility and flexibility versus IT control and visibility are the opposing requirements challenging even the most nimble of environments. Organizations are searching for several key capabilities to address this dichotomy:
• Infrastructure that is optimized for end users to drive down costs, simplify
acquisition, upgrade easily, and support policy management
• Flexibility in delivering workspaces to users—on-premises, cloud, and
offline—all within a unified workspace with single sign-on
• Management capabilities encompassing the entire ecosystem and providing
security, compliance, and management of day-to-day end-user environments
