As a cloud-based business services suite, Microsoft® Office 365™ provides organizations with access to web, mobile and desktop versions of traditional Office software tools, cloud storage space for enterprise file sharing, and hosted services for communication and social. By making these services available across desktop, mobile, and web platforms, Microsoft is experiencing increased adoption from both consumers and businesses while expanding the possibilities for anytime-anywhere collaboration.
Yet for all its promise, Office 365 poses a meaningful adoption and security challenges for the IT organization. Download this whitepaper to discover how VMware Workspace ONE™ brings together the power of VMware AirWatch® and VMware Identity Manager™ to accelerate and secure Office 365 deployments.
Network automation is becoming increasingly important for organizations of any size that are striving to make their IT infrastructure more agile, reliable and cost-efficient. While companies of all sizes have embraced server and storage virtualization, the network typically has not kept pace. In many cases, network provisioning and management are still handled by manual processes that slow down deployments, increase overhead costs and add risk in the form of human error.
Juniper Networks hybrid cloud architecture enables enterprises to build secure, high performance environments across private and public cloud data centers. The easy-tomanage, scalable architecture keeps operational costs down, allowing users to do more with fewer resources. Security is optimized by the space-efficient Juniper Networks® SRX Series Services Gateways, which are next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) with fully integrated, cloud-informed threat intelligence that offers outstanding performance, scalability, and integrated security services. Designed for high-performance security environments and seamless integration of networking, along with advanced malware detection with Juniper Sky™ Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP), application visibility and control, and intrusion prevention on a single platform, the SRX Series firewalls are best suited for enterprise hybrid cloud deployments.
Windows 10 requires 32% more graphics consumption than Windows 7, which means in a virtual desktop environment, the end user experiences slow performance, and applications that won’t launch.
When the OS is deployed using graphics processing units (GPUs) these additional processing requirements can be offloaded, enhancing overall performance.
Download this white paper to learn 4 ways GPUs can help improve your Windows 10 deployments in a virtualized environment.
As enterprises work to replicate the development agility of internet companies and innovate in highly competitive markets, application development has grown increasingly complex. The large, monolithic codebases that traditionally power enterprise applications make it difficult to quickly launch new services. Siloed and potentially distributed development and operations teams present organizational alignment problems. On top of this, users are more demanding than ever – enterprises need to scale effectively and monitor deployments to ensure customers are provided with high performance and a consistent experience. Of course, all this needs to be done while providing always-on service availability.
Business Enterprises today need to become more agile, meet new and increasing workload and security requirements, while reducing overall IT cost and risk. To meet these requirements many companies are turning to cloud computing. To remain competitive companies need to formulate a strategy that can easily move them from traditional on-premises IT to private or public clouds. A complete cloud strategy will likely include both private and public clouds because some applications and data might not be able to move to a public cloud. Moving to the cloud should not create information silos but should improve data sharing. Any cloud strategy should make sure that it is possible to integrate on-premises, private cloud and public cloud data and applications. Furthermore, any on-premises cloud deployments must be able to easily migrate to public cloud in the future
This document discusses how to secure applications using Oracle Solaris 11 security and the hardware-assisted cryptography capabilities of Oracle’s SPARC servers. This document explores the end-to-end application security scenarios, technical prerequisites, configuration, deployment, and verification guidelines for multitier application deployments running on Oracle Solaris 11–based SPARC servers. In addition, this document covers the Oracle hardware-assisted cryptographic acceleration of the SPARC processor, a key feature when performance and data protection are deemed critical. The derived security benefits can be leveraged into a variety of solutions including application software, middleware, and infrastructure software.
Oracle is making significant engineering investments to ensure that Oracle systems coupled with Oracle software deliver the best possible business results. Integrated hardware, accelerated virtualization, and encryption ensure that cloud deployments benefit from the utmost agility and security without suffering performance losses.
It’s never been easier to upgrade your legacy systems and take advantage of Oracle's cutting-edge infrastructure systems. Advanced data security, extreme efficiency with Software in Silicon and dramatic gains in performance make Oracle systems the best choice for your Oracle software deployments.
Why should we bother automating deployments in the first place? What should the scope of the automation effort be? How do we get started? This white paper provides a solid introduction to these topics.
