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.
Hyperconverged infrastructure is radically shaking up the IT landscape, creating huge operational and economic benefits. Tier 1 applications such as Exchange, SQL Server, Oracle and others are among the many beneficiaries of this new generation of infrastructure. However, there are many vendors jumping on the market bandwagon, and not all systems that are marketed as hyperconverged really fit the criteria. IT organizations need to do their homework to ensure they are selecting true hyperconverged solutions.
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.

Hyperconvergence has been receiving a tremendous amount of attention because it represents the next step in the evolution of IT resource delivery. This technology takes the idea of integrating compute, storage and networking that started with converged systems design and has improved on those architectures by adding deeper levels of abstraction and automation. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) vendors promise simplified operation and the ability to quickly and easily expand capacity by deploying and launching additional modules; simplicity has been the key selling point for the HCI pioneers.
As HCI ventures even deeper into the enterprise and cloud environments, the architectures will need to become more efficient, agile and adaptable to help IT professionals shoulder the burden of rapidly growing data sets and workloads. This report discusses the benefits of HCI and the enhancements that must be
made to expand HCI deeper into the mainstream enterprise datacenter.
Today all businesses battle with unprecedented competitive pressures. In order to succeed—or even survive—
they must rapidly adapt to constantly changing environments, in every industry and sector. What does this
mean for IT leaders? Transformation, on all fronts.
The very factors driving digital transformation in businesses are also pressuring IT organizations to transform.
Customer expectations have increased. Companies live and die by the applications they provide to their customers
and employees. A smartphone is the modern bank branch. The palm of your hand is replacing traditional brick-and-mortar
stores. Access without delay or interruption, 24/7, is the new normal. If they can’t get what they want, when
they want it, customers go elsewhere.
New disruptive digital technologies are changing the face of workplace as well as worker expectations. The rapidly evolving 21st-century workforce is becoming increasingly mobile, contract-based, and technology savvy. Corporate real estate, IT, and HR leaders need to improve their work environments to suit these evolving needs, or they risk losing their employees to competition.

Creating a highly scalable, reliable, and efficient DNS infrastructure takes time, money, and expertise. You can accelerate your success and contain costs with a cloud-based service. Cloud-based DNS also exposes myriad opportunities to leverage the DNS infrastructure for global load balancing and traffic steering across hybrid environments.

In this eBook, we’ll make the case for why you need to rethink DNS from several different and important perspectives. The first is to rethink your DNS choices. Choices around solutions, vendors and configurations that were made several years ago may no longer be optimal in today’s environment. The second is to rethink the importance of DNS for building digital resilience, including the need for a secondary DNS configuration. The third is to rethink the value of DNS as it has evolved to be so much more than simple domain name resolution. Modern DNS with intelligent response capabilities continues to open up new opportunities for traffic steering across hybrid resources.

For a backup solution to be considered flexible, it needs to satisfy
several key business requirements. It should integrate seamlessly
with any servers you’re running and provide full support for
all the applications your business uses. It should enable you to
protect assets in different parts of the country or overseas. And
it should let you manage and monitor backups from anywhere.
A flexible backup solution gives you everything you need to
protect the technology investments you make now and in the
future. So instead of having to buy multiple solutions to support
your changing needs, you can have a single solution that adapts
to fit your environment. We call that flexible deployment.
