Kenzan, a software engineering firm that specializes in building scalable, data-driven solutions, often leverages DataStax Enterprise (DSE) for customers that have high expectations for both performance and value. That means making careful, informed choices when designing the cloud infrastructure that applications run on.
Controlling costs is always a priority for businesses that rely on AWS for running DSE. With AWS, it can be tempting to solve performance issues simply by adding more resources until the problem goes away. However, this “solution” results in increased costs which quickly add up over time.
In this white paper, Kenzan and DataStax identify some of the key factors to consider when building out infrastructure on AWS, outlining practical steps you can take to optimize performance with DSE on AWS while keeping costs in check.

Digital disruptors are giving customers the information they want, when, where, and how they want it, resulting in a fundamental shift in customer expectations and how enterprises deliver value. As enterprises move towards adopting these modern applications and achieving data autonomy, the data layer and cloud infrastructure they run on can make a huge impact.
In this eBook, we’ll take a look at why DataStax and Azure combine to make the ideal data layer for contextual, always on, real-time, distributed, and scalable applications.
"Hybrid cloud adoption is exploding, with 80% of enterprises having at least some infrastructure in the cloud. This growth includes increased use of multiple endpoints to deliver applications, sites and services, requiring a performance management strategy to ensure those services reach users effectively.
This educational webinar will cover the importance of:
• Optimizing round trip times and latency, with clear real-time data
• Understanding the importance of load balancing and active failover
• Protecting your service from route hijacks, DDoS attacks and mitigating vulnerabilities

Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be
regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning.
The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a
business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their
customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business
(LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy.
IDC believes that this emerging environment is to date still highly undefined, even as
businesses must make critical decisions. Should businesses develop in-house or use VARs,
systems integrators, or consultants? Should they deploy on-premise, in the cloud, or in some
hybrid form? Can they use existing infrastructure, or do AI applications and deep learning
require new servers with new capabilities? We believe that many of these questions can be
Wherever an organization is in the world today, it relies on IT in its quest to drive revenues, improve profit margins, and service customers. Yet most small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and government agencies select IT infrastructure solutions that drive higher costs and limit the business' ability to respond to changes in the marketplace. This is driven by perceptions that many IT executives running Linux and open source applications have regarding server platforms. Specifically, they erroneously believe that their best option is to execute the applications either on standalone or virtualized on x86 servers. RFG finds that there are 10 compelling reasons why an IBM LinuxONE solution is superior to an x86 one, including the fact that LinuxONE is a better, more economical choice.

Which of your applications should move to the cloud? Is public, private, or hybrid cloud the right choice? And should you use containers, or Platform-as-a-Service technologies? Whether you’re trying to optimize your existing landscape, strengthen your foundation, or innovate with newer technologies that are delivered via cloud platforms, you need to know where to start. In this webcast, hear how IBM helped The Tribune Publishing Company build an effective plan to accelerate their digital transformation. Learn how IBM can also help you analyze your full portfolio, identify opportunities to optimize and automate your infrastructure and determine which applications to move, and the potential business value.
Vast resources of data are increasingly available, but the sheer volume can overwhelm human capability. By implementing the cognitive system of IBM Watson Discovery into their infrastructure, businesses can extract deeper and more accurate insights by efficiently identifying, collecting and curating structured and unstructured data.
Watson Discovery, also capable of creating content collections and custom cognitive applications, can transform organizational processes to extend proprietary content and expert knowledge faster and at greater scales.
Read more to learn how Watson Discovery can keep your organization evolving ahead of the competition.

VMware Horizon® 7 offers full-featured support for hosted applications and shared desktop sessions, expanding the capabilities of the leading virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) platform. Tightly integrated with Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS), Horizon can deliver hosted applications and desktop sessions, virtual desktops, and VMware ThinApp® virtualized applications, all supported on the devices end users want to use.
This white paper provides guidance for adding support for hosted applications and desktop sessions to your VMware Horizon infrastructure. Whether the goal is to integrate an existing RDS environment for combined management with VMware Horizon virtual desktops or deploy hosted applications and desktop sessions for the first time, VMware Horizon provides the technology required and a simple path forward.
To meet the growing challenges of a competitive world economy, a digital transformation is taking place in the enterprise. Organizations realize that to be competitive they need to be more agile. They need to reach their customers wherever they are, and they need to be able to scale their applications to meet customer demands.
To meet these challenges, organizations are deploying new microservice applications that are changing the application delivery environment. These applications are agile, configured to enable new features to be added without disrupting applications in production, and designed to automatically instantiate instances in response to increasing user demand. In short, microservices are drastically changing the way that applications are deployed and managed. This introduces a high level of complexity to network infrastructures because traditional applications are not going away. Applications will continue to be designed for both microservices and traditional 3-tier imple
The world of IT is undergoing a digital transformation. Applications are growing fast, and so are the users consuming them. These applications are everywhere—in the datacenter, on virtual and/or microservices platforms, in the cloud, and as SaaS. More and more apps are now being moved out of datacenters to a cloud-based infrastructure.
In order for an optimized and secure delivery of these applications, IT needs specific network appliances called Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs). These ADCs come in hardware, virtual, and containerized form factors, and are sized by Network Administrators based on the current and future usage of applications. The challenge with this is that it’s hard to foresee sizing or scalability requirements for these ADCs since users are constantly increasing, and applications are consistently evolving, as well as moving out of datacenters.
Complicating matters, most ADCs are fixed-capacity network appliances that provide zero or minimum expansion capability
