The current era in cyber security is characterized by three fundamental challenges: the complexity of the enterprise network and connected infrastructure, the speed of newage attacks, and the strain of overwhelmed incident responders.
In many ways, the expansion of networks and continual adoption of new technologies - from cloud services to the Internet of Things - has expanded the attack surface and introduced new entry-points through which attackers can gain a foothold. This, combined with the ready availability of exploit kits on the Dark Web, has led to the ‘vicious circle of the SOC’, where incident responders are so busy fire-fighting that they rarely have time to implement the critical patches that would prevent the problem at source.
As security teams struggle to keep up with the rising volume of routine attacks, a new generation of cyberthreat has also emerged, characterized in large part by fast-moving threats that make an impact well before humans have time to respond. Thes
Despite all the excitement about clouds, only a handful has yet been built, mostly because infrastructure is such a challenge. Before cloud-type systems can bloom, businesses need ready access to the kind of infrastructure Google had to cobble together itself: high scale, low-cost and mass customized. Read this online article to learn how these extreme scale-out infrastructures will not only seed clouds, but nourish Web 2.0 and high-performance systems while inspiring business models we can't yet imagine.

Many organizations have adopted virtualization as a standard for server workloads. But virtualization has not proven to be the “game changer” many organizations had envisioned. IT departments face huge challenges related to server sprawl, which has actually increased with virtualization.
Although virtualization has brought benefits beyond the physical paradigm of one operating system per server, the true optimal infrastructure for organizations comes with adopting a private cloud infrastructure.
Check out this white paper to learn the benefits of a private cloud and discover how deploying one private cloud solution can provide:

No matter where you are in your cloud implementations, learn best practices and strategies in this eBook series focused on Building the Network that Empowers Digital Business. Part 2 of the series, this guide focuses on best practices and creating a master implementation plan. Interested in crafting your strategy and business case for using multiple clouds, watch for Part 1 in the series "The Evolution from Network to Multi-Clouds."
As more hardware, devices, apps, and tools are deployed to support growth, the infrastructure becomes increasingly difficult to integrate, manage and support. The concept of converged infrastructure was seen as the answer to this problem. However, when bringing together disparate components not deeply integrated or designed to work together, this "solution" sapped efficiency and added more complexity. Plus, there was no convenient public cloud option. Explore how Oracle Engineered Systems are designed to overcome the limitations of traditional converged infrastructure solutions.
Managing a mix of private, public, and hybrid cloud environments is a challenge for even the most robust IT departments. An enterprise-grade cloud management platform (CMP) puts you back in charge. It allows you to manage heterogeneous multi-cloud environments as one, enabling rapid delivery of infrastructure and applications with no loss of control.
This paper reviews the top three ways a cloud management platform from VMware can help you manage your environment more efficiently.

When it comes to IT infrastructure, it’s fair to say the perimeter has left the premises. Whether it’s discovering short-lived assets (e.g., containers), assessing cloud environments or maintaining web application security, today’s attack surface presents a growing challenge to CISOs looking to understand and reduce their cyber risk. To combat this issue, a discipline called Cyber Exposure is emerging to help organizations manage and measure this risk. This ebook provides insights on how CISOs are addressing the modern attack surface.

At its Build conference in May, Microsoft took the wraps off Cosmos DB, the new incarnation of its
existing cloud-based Azure DocumentDB NoSQL database. With a nod to the dramatic, Microsoft
terms Cosmos DB as its biggest database bet since SQL Server; it is positioning it as its flagship
cloud database, suited for use cases ranging from security and fraud detection, to IoT (consumer and
industrial), personalization, e-commerce, gaming, social networks, chats, messaging, bots, oil and gas
recovery and refining, and smart utility grids. Cosmos DB is a good example of how cloud platform
providers are rethinking databases for scalable, elastic environments and commodity infrastructure.
The platform that is most comparable is Google Cloud Spanner, but each of these databases is
engineered for different purposes: Cosmos DB as a globally distributed operational database and
Spanner as a globally distributed SQL-supporting OLTP database.
The highlights of Cosmos DB include its flexibility in

Cloud computing has ushered in a golden era for software companies. The cloud’s low barrier to entry allows
creativity to flourish, especially for software developers who are creating applications directly on cloud-based
infrastructure. Cloud-based infrastructure enables developers to do what they love: solve business problems and
bring innovative new ideas to life, using their choice of tools. In a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, applications
can easily be deployed to a cloud service, and delivered to clients who appreciate the ease of access and low cost.
The cloud model relieves the developer and the enterprise IT professional from the burden of managing or
maintaining capital-intense infrastructure.
But the cloud’s low barrier to entry also allows competing software providers to enter the market every day,
from every sector. Independent software vendors, or ISVs, are pressured by increased competition to deliver
their applications faster, with greater functionality and ease of

Cloud is becoming an essential ingredient to a successful IT infrastructure. Recent research by IDC has
identified how the growth of cloud as a computing platform has magnified the importance of cloud skills to
the success of the enterprise. Moreover, it is becoming clear that IT professionals with cloud skills are
strongly influencing both the type of cloud infrastructure and the ultimate pace of adoption of cloud. This
puts IT professionals with cloud skills in the driver's seat of their own career. In fact, IT professionals with
certifications related to cloud development and operations have dramatically more influence over their
organizations' adoption and expansion of cloud services than otherwise similar IT professionals have
over the adoption of other types of technical solutions. Cloud skills accelerate the success and career
path of IT professionals.
The impactful cloud roles are diverse: Multicloud or hybrid cloud management, workload-centric
management, and DevOps illustrate
Read this white paper to understand how the HP CloudSystem Matrix is an integrated IT infrastructure solution that meets this challenge head-on, enabling organizations to simplify their IT infrastructure and streamline operating costs.

The investment that an organization makes in their virtualization or cloud initiative is significant, but so is the ROI (Return On Investment) that these projects deliver. The challenge is that the cost of providing the storage infrastructure to these initiatives can be expensive and can quickly eat into any ROI that was gained by the virtualization and/or cloud project.
Cloud computing is increasingly being adopted as a way for IT organizations to decrease costs, improve efficiency, and enhance business agility. NetApp has been helping companies succeed in cloud deployment to achieve tangible results since long before the term cloud entered the popular lexicon. NetApp has the people, technologies, and partnerships in place to help organizations evolve existing IT infrastructure into an efficient cloud-based service delivery model. The NetApp® Unified Storage Architecture and clustered Data ONTAP® operating system integrate all storage capabilities into a single, easy-to-use platform. By choosing NetApp when making the transition to a private cloud or a hybrid cloud, organizations will be able to meet their storage business needs now and in the future.
As organizations evolve from virtualized infrastructures to private clouds, IT management must measure success by the efficiencies of the infrastructure in providing end users with flexible and cost-effective services and service levels. NetApp® OnCommand® Insight storage resource management software provides service analytics that help enterprises manage the complexity of this transition. OnCommand Insight provides a holistic view into complex multivendor and multiprotocol storage services and powerful analytics to help organizations fully leverage the promise of cloud computing.
Changing workloads are pushing organizations to consider new infrastructure options.
The latest designs address growing interest and the unique demands of the Internet of Things and Big Data. When cloud service provider Virdata needed to develop a highly scalable platform to collect information from millions of devices and offer Big Data analytics to its customers, it chose a converged infrastructure.

As IT advances, organizations are adopting infrastructures that enhance agility and improve efficiency.
Data centers are evolving to a state that is almost unrecognizable from only a few years ago. Numerous forces, such as cloud computing and powerful orchestration solutions, are combining to fundamentally change data centers, making them more powerful, sophisticated, flexible and efficient. Many organizations are adopting a hybrid infrastructure data center model that combines a variety of technologies and methodologies, including virtualization, private clouds and other internal IT resources, along with external options such as hosting, colocation, Software as a Service (SaaS) applications and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings.
IT decision-makers at most enterprises understand the benefits that the cloud has to offer: increased agility and more predictable budgeting, among others. In many organizations, in fact, “cloud first” has become the mantra when seeking out new software solutions. But often, enterprises are less clear on the specific use cases of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and how providers can help deliver IT capabilities that meet their needs and help them to achieve desired business outcomes.
When it comes to application infrastructure, some of the burning questions that organizations are asking themselves include:
If I host some of my application functionality in the could, how do I integrate that with my existing on-premises applications?
How do I integrate my on-premises application with external business partners?
Everyone is talking about platform as a service (PaaS). Should I use it? If so, when and when not?
In this research, we address these questions by introducing the concept of iPaaS, a specific form of PaaS targeting integration and governance requirements, and how it can be used to address cloud-to-on-premises and other related requirements.
