As powerful as Microsoft Lync is, buyers should understand it is not a complete UC solution, and use of strategic partners is necessary. Voice and video are the most difficult services to provision correctly as workers require a high-quality, real-time experience. Anything short of that can remove many of the ROI benefits the company was hoping to realize. As such, companies deploying Lync should choose the best possible voice and video partner for Lync to simplify deployments and optimize user experience.

Almost 700 businesses in North America and Europe were independently surveyed to understand whether they are already experiencing the impact of poor application performance in their cloud application deployments, and how this is affecting their cloud strategies going forward.
This document describes Cisco HyperFlex™ HX Data Platform
Software, which revolutionizes data storage for hyperconverged
You’ll learn about the platform’s architecture and software-defined
storage approach, and how you can use it to eliminate the storage silos that complicate your IT infrastructure.
This document is written for IT decision makers, architects, engineers, and application owners who make architectural decisions for hybrid deployments. The architecture described in this document is for large and medium-sized businesses that are considering hybrid cloud solutions. This document is also useful for service providers that deliver hybrid cloud services to businesses.
The Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches product family makes the next generation of data center switching accessible to customers of any size. This white paper is intended for commercial customers new to Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches who are curious how the switches might be feasibly deployed in their data centers.
This white paper highlights the benefits of Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches, outlines several designs suitable for small-to-midsize customer deployments, discusses integration with existing networks, and walks through a topology validated by Cisco for Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches, complete with configuration examples.
This white paper describes how HP LeftHand SANs can help you deploy VMware Infrastructure 3 (VI3) software more effectively through volume snapshots, SmartClone volumes, volume migration, and high-availability features. With HP LeftHand SAN and VI3, organizations can reclaim valuable data center space and reduce their power and cooling requirements.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 provides a powerful environment for users to conduct business through scheduling their time (calendar), managing their relationships (contacts), and communicating inside and outside their organization (e-mail). The IBM Storwize V7000 Unified storage system, combined with powerful management software from IBM Tivoli, provides an ideal complement to Exchange 2010 deployments by providing a highly virtualized storage infrastructure designed to meet the specific needs of Exchange 2010 environments.
Cloud computing give you the opportunity to manage infrastructure as code. This capability provides the ability to manage the delivery pipeline in a way similar to how we manage code, providing repeatable, testable deployments of applications all the way from unit to user acceptance tests, reducing risks and costs, and removing the bottlenecks that occur at the transition from agile development to operational deployment. Join this webcast to learn how Collaborative DevOps solutions from IBM can help turn your delivery pipeline into an agile, automated workflow.
Cloud computing is becoming a key IT resource, but securing applications and data in the cloud remains a concern. Secure remote access tech, web application firewalls, network-side scripting and other strategies can make cloud deployments secure.
Using data from real customer deployments, Solitaire examines differentiators for network infrastructure deployments on either PowerLinux or Windows. PowerLinux clearly emerges as a preferred platform.
Virtualization is one of the most highly demanded of all IT projects this decade because it enables enterprises to reduce capex and opex costs and at the same time increase business efficiency and agility. However, implementing, supporting, and managing virtualization can often be difficult tasks, especially as deployments increase in scale and complexity and impact more areas of the datacenter. These more complex infrastructures often require highly skilled engineers with in-depth business knowledge and systems management capabilities. Projects such as infrastructure optimization and automation initiatives for self-service provisioning are key because they enable enterprises to streamline business processes and utilize cloud strategies and mobility solutions. IDC shows how partnering with experts who can implement, optimize, support, and manage virtualized environments may be the right course of action. By utilizing partners, enterprises will be able to avoid some of the potential pit
Business needs, market trends, and customer demands are forcing IT teams to deploy applications at a rapid rate. The frequency of the deployments can invoke human errors, failed deployments, and outages. This paper will guide you through seven best practices that will strengthen the way applications are released to production.
This IDC paper discusses the critical role of hardware infrastructure in business analytics deployments, citing best practices, the IDC's decision framework, and four client case studies - Wellpoint, Vestas, AXTEL, and Miami-Dade County. IDC's recommendation is that "infrastructure cannot — and should not — be an afterthought". Hardware infrastructure and software requirements must be determined in parallel to maximize the success of business analytics projects.
Enterprises are rapidly adopting cloud computing solutions in order to meet dynamically changing business requirements. These solutions are typically comprised of both private and public cloud deployments, resulting in the creation of hybrid clouds that are designed to rapidly scale up and down in response to user demands, and they provide the advantages of elastic computing economics.
This document is written for IT decision makers, architects, engineers, and application owners who
make architectural decisions for hybrid deployments. The architecture described in this document is for
large and medium-sized businesses that are considering hybrid cloud solutions. This document is also
useful for service providers that deliver hybrid cloud services to businesses.

This whitepaper looks at why companies choose Riak
over a relational database. We focus specifically on
availability, scalability, and the key/value data model. Then
we analyze the decision points that should be considered
when choosing a non-relational solution and review data
modeling, querying, and consistency guarantees. Finally, we
end with simple patterns for building common applications
in Riak using its key/value design, dealing with data conflicts
that emerge in an eventually consistent system, and discuss
