When it comes to delivering digital content, downtime isn’t the only concern. Today a poor user experience can be just as damaging as an outage. According to Limelight research, 78% of people will stop watching an online video after it buffers three times, and the majority of people will not wait more than 5 seconds for a website to load.
Organizations looking to deliver great digital experiences for their customers often choose to deliver that content using Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). Using multiple CDNs to deliver these digital content experiences promises even greater levels of availability and performance. But it brings with it a host of questions. In this paper we’ll explore the 5 things you should know about multi-CDN in order to determine if it might make sense for your business.

Red Hat can help you deliver 348% ROI and achieve agile, high-performing infrastructures
Linux® has become the standard operating system for cloud infrastructure as well as the preferred delivery vehicle for modern applications. This is, in part, thanks to it being reliable environment that offers scale, security, and robust application support.
Red Hat® Enterprise Linux expands on this trust and credibility by offering a supported, hardened, enterprise environment that delivers on more efficient operational costs, better reliability and availability, and better scalability. These translate into a better return on investment (ROI) for our enterprise customers.
IDC’s study, “The Business Value of Red Hat Enterprise Linux,” interviewed 12 organizations to see how they’re using Red Hat Enterprise Linux to support their business operations. These organizations reported that Red Hat provides a cost-effective, efficient, and reliable operating environment.

Virtualization is rapidly changing the way business IT operates, from small local businesses to multinational corporations. If you are reading this, chances are good that your company is already taking advantage of virtualization’s benefits.
Virtualization means that a single underlying piece of hardware, such as a server, runs multiple guest operating systems to create virtual machines, or VMs, with each of them being oblivious to the others. An administrative application, such as VMware, manages the sharing process, allocating hardware resources, memory, and CPU time to each VM as needed. And all applications look at this software construct exactly as if it were a real, physical server — even the VM thinks it’s a real server!
Virtualization makes good financial sense. It enables a single server to offer multiple capabilities that otherwise would require separate servers. It includes native high availability features, so you don’t have to use any more complex clustering tools. This ab
Business and IT leaders are looking to virtualization and cloud computing to deliver unprecedented agility for supporting a wide range of objectives, including cost management, increased mobility, higher application availability, and greater responsiveness to customer-related opportunities.
This whitepaper discusses the key factors that influence both battery and UPS life; and provides some simple recommendations and guidelines to help you manage your single phase UPS to maximize the life and overall availability.
In the end, the Dell EMC VMAX 250F with Intel® Xeon® Processor All Flash storage array lived up to its promises better than the HPE 3PAR 8450 Storage array did.
We experience minimal impact to database performance when the VMAX 250F processed transactional and data mart loading at the same time. This is useful whether you're performing extensive backups or compiling large amounts of data from multiple sources.
Intel Inside®. New Possibilities Outside.
Prevent unexpected downtime with reliable failover protection.
We interrupted access both local storage arrays - the Dell EMC database host seamlessly redirected all I/O to remote VMAX 250F with Intel® Xeon® Processor via SRDF/Metro with no interruption of service or downtime. The 3PAR solution crashed until the standby paths became active and we restarted the VM.
This white paper reveals the five storage imperatives or virtualizing mission critical applications and explains how to improve performance and responsiveness, achieve reliability and availability, reduce costs and implement powerful data protection.
In this white paper, we’ll examine how the Pravail® portfolio from Arbor Networks can empower your network operations and security teams to more efficiently help protect the integrity and availability of your enterprise network against advanced attacks.

Amadeus is a leading provider of innovative technology solutions for the global travel industry. To meet changing customer demand, the €4 billion company needed a new computing platform that was highly available, flexible, and tolerant to infrastructure fluctuations. Amadeus chose OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat as the foundation for its new application infrastructure. When the project is complete, Amadeus expects the cloud solution to decrease system latency for better customer service, increase platform availability, streamline operations through automation, and reduce time to market for new services.
The existence of smartphones and tablets able to run lightweight apps has created a quantum leap in the potential of mobile devices in the workplace. Apps present enterprises with clear benefits in terms of maximizing employee connectivity, availability, flexibility and productivity.

The core technology behind Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has evolved for decades. More
recently, DRaaS has linked to the cloud, and finally hit its stride. Today it can provide unprecedented
availability options to companies who don’t have secondary data centers dedicated to business
continuity. Before now, only IT teams with additional IT budget, staff and geographic locations could
effectively hedge against downtime, and disasters.
But today’s DRaaS means that businesses of all sizes have the peace of mind that comes with knowing a
replica of their data and systems is hosted at a remote site that they can fail over to—without bearing
any of the infrastructure costs or maintenance responsibilities. All infrastructure and maintenance is
the responsibility of the DRaaS provider. And the technology ensures that a replica is not only available,
but always current and immediately available. This attractive value proposition led Gartner to predict
that global DRaaS revenue will rea
Business leaders expect two things from IT: keep mission-critical applications available and high performing 24x7 and, if something does happen, recover to be back in business quickly and without losing any critical data so there is no impact on revenue stream. Of course, there is a gap between this de facto expectation from nontechnical business leaders and what current technology is actually capable of delivering. For mission-critical workloads, which are most often hosted on databases, organizations may choose to implement high availability (HA) technologies within the database to avoid downtime and data loss.
Organizations looking to deliver great digital experiences for their customers often choose to deliver that content using Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). In some cases, using multiple CDNs to deliver these digital content experiences promises even greater levels of availability and performance. But how do you know if a multi-CDN strategy is right for your business? This free Guide will help!
From the boardroom to the backroom, everyone is looking for ways to protect their digital content from cyber threats like DDoS attacks, unauthorized access or theft. In this white paper, we’ll discuss ten different ways to protect your digital content, ensure high availability and maintain superior quality of experience for every digital visitor.
Global DNS performance and availability are critical to user experience. According to Gartner, “DNS is mission-critical to all organizations that connect to the internet. DNS failure or poor performance leads to applications, data and content becoming unavailable, causing user frustration, lost sales and business reputation damage.” But many businesses still rely on a single, often in-house DNS solution that lacks global scale and resiliency.
This white paper reviews the business advantages of implementing a high availability DNS architecture using redundant DNS services. You will learn:
- The critical role DNS plays in the user experience.
- The risks of relying solely on a single DNS solution.
- The added performance and reliability benefits of a high availability DNS architecture with a redundant managed DNS service.
- Criteria for evaluating a managed DNS service provider.
