There’s no denying that hyperconverged infrastructure is hot right now, promising to dramatically shift the way infrastructure is procured, deployed and managed. But questions remain. Is it actually addressing the real-world concerns faced by real-world customers? What are the catalysts driving organizations to evaluate hyperconvergence and are they finding that the results match the hype when they actually do deploy?
Get the fast facts from this SimpliVity eBook based on research from ActualTech Media, segmented and re-analyzed just for EMEA.
From professional services and hospitality to healthcare and retail, businesses thrive when they have fast, reliable Internet connections. You need reliable connections to send sales transactions, upload files, transmit payroll data, and take advantage of cloud-based applications for sales, finance, and shipping. Then remember all of the different devices in your office – like mobile phones, wearables, tablets, and even desktop phones – and the need becomes even greater.

Did you know that for 88% of shoppers, the first step to a local purchase is often an online search? If you want customers to find you, you must have a consistent, rich and engaging online brand that is equally optimized for both desktop and mobile SEO, and that contains long tail keywords for voice search assistants like Siri, Alexa, Cortana, and Google Voice. Be sure to claim and regularly maintain your listings for every widely used portal and social site, and create a separate locator page for every single location—so that you show up at the top of all local searches.

Phoenix Children’s CISO, Daniel Shuler, and its IT security team are responsible for protecting 5,000 endpoints in the hospital and across more than 20 clinics in the region. Endpoints include physician and staff laptops and desktops, nursing stations, servers, Windows-based clinical devices, credit card payment processors, and point-of-sale terminals. These endpoints are used to store and/or process personal health information (PHI), and payment and credit card information. They must comply with HIPAA for PHI and voluntarily comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) for credit card data. The IT security team’s existing industry-leading AV solution claimed to provide visibility into malicious activity aimed at the endpoints. It continuously reported all endpoints were safe, sound, and secure. This caused Daniel to be suspicious. He knew from experience that such low levels of endpoint malicious activity was highly unlikely. Read the full case study to learn about the results Cylance was able to deliver.
Today, mobility is no longer a trend. It’s the new reality — and it is reshaping the enterprise. Gone are the days of employees tethered to desktop computers, and they’re no longer dependent on an Ethernet or wi-fi connection to work remotely. More and more enterprise employees are conducting daily work transactions on mobile devices. Mobility surged to 1.3 billion workers in 2015, continuing a 33 percent growth trend since 2010. These mobile workers aren’t limiting themselves to a single device, either. In just the last year, the number of devices managed by enterprises grew an incredible 72 percent.
Today, mobility is no longer a trend. It’s an established reality, reshaping the enterprise. This white paper is the second in a three-part series on enabling the mobile desktop while securing information and protecting your organization.

In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.

In the past, desktops, business apps, and critical infrastructure were all located behind the firewall. Today, more and more is happening off-network. More roaming users. More corporate owned laptops accessing the internet from other networks. More cloud apps, mean that users don’t need to be on the corporate network to get work done. And more branch offices connecting directly to the internet.
Most enterprises are providing employees and third parties with remote access to their applications in much the same way they did 20 years ago—through VPNs, proxies, and remote desktops—but new and growing realities are forcing enterprises to take a different path.
Read this whitepaper to learn five reasons why enterprises need a new access model.

You’re looking at flash storage because you see it’s taking the storage world by storm. You’re interested in accelerating business-critical applications, consolidating a virtual server or desktop deployment, trying to get ahead of your company’s data onslaught, or some combination of the above.
This easy-to-read guide was developed to help arm you with key considerations and questions to ask before investing in a flash storage array for your business, today and for the future.
You’re looking at flash storage because you see it’s taking the storage world by storm. You’re interested in accelerating business-critical applications, consolidating a virtual server or desktop deployment, trying to get ahead of your company’s data onslaught, or some combination of the above. This easy-to-read guide was developed to help arm you with key considerations and questions to ask before investing in a flash storage array for your business today, and for the future.
Modern storage arrays can’t compete on price without a range of data reduction
technologies that help reduce the overall total cost of ownership of external
storage. Unfortunately, there is no one single data reduction technology that fits
all data types and we see savings being made with both data deduplication and
compression, depending on the workload. Typically, OLTP-type data (databases)
work well with compression and can achieve between 2:1 and 3:1 reduction,
depending on the data itself. Deduplication works well with large volumes of
repeated data like virtual machines or virtual desktops, where many instances or
images are based off a similar “gold” master.
Everybody has their favorite apps…but can you name even three mobile websites you like? Probably not – and that’s because retrofitting desktop web designs fails to meet users’ mobile expectations. Yet in spite of that, smartphone traffic is at its highest point ever and will only continue to increase. This report, written by Forrester analysts, outlines why it’s time for a radical web reset and how you can make your mobile website a “first-class citizen.”

Online images used to be simple. In the past, they weren’t the focal point of a page — there were only a handful of images on a given page and all users were viewing online images on a desktop with dial-up. That has all changed. Today’s web pages are dynamic, filled with images and viewed by end users on different devices with varying connectivity. As audience expectations for rich web experiences have grown, so has the requirement to deliver increasingly image-heavy web applications. The problem? The cost and complexity of creating, storing, and delivering web images tailored for every device poses a significant challenge for businesses, but failing to address the increasing diversity across devices and networks will lead to a poor and inconsistent user experience. Current solutions don’t solve this problem completely.
Imagine the benefits that a VDI environment could realize during a boot storm. All the VMs are based on the same template, and therefore they all have the same set of files during initial boot. Normally, 100 VMs all booting at the same time would require a significant number of HDDs, but with this hyperconverged infrastructure platform, the first VM to boot reads the block off the HDD, which promotes that block into cache. Now the next 99 VMs can all access that same block from cache. That’s a 100:1 IOPS reduction on the IOPS-bound disks.
