"SD-WAN largely exists today to support two key enterprise transformations: multicloud and the software-defined branch (SD-Branch).
Multicloud has changed the center of gravity for enterprise applications, and with that, has changed traffic patterns too. No longer does traffic need to flow to enterprise data center sites or central internet peering points and breakouts. That’s because most traffic from users and devices in the enterprise campus and branch today goes to cloud-based applications scattered across a host of clouds.
It’s neither economical nor efficient to haul traffic over WAN-dedicated links to a central enterprise site. So to optimize the cost and performance of multicloud-bound traffic, modern WAN edge routers, often called customer premises equipment (CPE), are now equipped with hybrid WAN links and routing. Hybrid WAN interfaces may include WAN provider-dedicated links such as MPLS, as well as direct internet links over xDSL, broadband and 4G/LTE wireless."
Infinidat® enterprise storage solutions are based upon the unique and patented Infinidat storage architecture—A fully abstracted set of Software-Defined Storage (SDS) functions integrated with the best-of-breed off-the-shelf commodity hardware. Infinidat’s software-focused architecture, an evolution and revolution in data management design over 30 years in the making, solves the conflicting requirements of bigger, faster, and less expensive. This paper discusses the technology that enables Infinidat to be the only enterprise storage provider that achieves multi-petabyte capacity with faster than all-flash performance (over 1.3M IOPS at microsecond latency) and an unprecedented seven-nines availability, all at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.

Driven by the need to save money, improve agility, and take rapid advantage of emerging
technologies to improve internal collaboration and customer engagement, organizations are
quickly adopting Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a
Service (CCaaS). UCaaS and CCaaS enable businesses to deliver a modern communications
environment, without large capital investment, and in a manner that provides for rapid
scaling, easy expansion into new sites and geographies, and deployment flexibility.
Unfortunately, many enterprise networks are not optimized to deliver the performance and
reliability required to support cloud-based applications, including UCaaS and CCaaS. As a
result, IT leaders are rapidly adopting Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN)
technologies. With SD-WAN’s ability to virtualize underlying network services and to build
enterprise-grade WANs using both public (Internet) connectivity and private WAN
connectivity, IT leaders can leverage it to su
Virtualization is now mainstream. Enterprises continue to heavily invest in virtualization projects and while short term hardware and cost saving benefits are being achieved, few enterprises achieve anywhere close to the full potential of virtualization as they struggle with new problems like assuring performance and availability, preventing VM sprawl, and maximizing resource utilization
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.

The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS
Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.

The tipping point has arrived. Large enterprises are planning their next-generation datacenters around flash-based storage, and for good reason. Flash arrays provide read and write performance that is orders of magnitude faster than spinning media at a total cost of ownership that is on par with disk and will soon be lower. The benefits not only include improved application performance, but more consistent performance, lower latency, reduced storage footprint, streamlined storage administration, and lower operating costs. These advantages are too beneficial to your business to ignore. That’s why flash is becoming the standard for new storage investments.
For the typical enterprise, the volume of data that needs to be managed and protected is growing at roughly 40% per year. Add to that the performance requirements of new applications and the demands for instant response time, always-on availability, and anytime-anywhere access. With such demands, data center managers face storage challenges that cannot be addressed using traditional, spinning-disk technology.
Very little data is available on how effectively enterprises are managing private cloud deployments in the real world. Are they doing so efficiently, or are they facing challenges in areas such as performance, TCO and capacity? Hewlett Packard Enterprise commissioned 451 Research to explore these issues through a survey of IT decision-makers and data from the Cloud Price Index.
The performance of enterprise applications will have a direct impact on business activities and outcomes. The quality of the delivery of applications will depend on how smoothly the underlying data infrastructure operates.
? Optimal application performance and delivery is difficult to achieve in complex environments.
? Many IT infrastructure and operations teams are stretched to the breaking point.
? Predictive analytics and machine learning can be applied to great effect
