Late comers to the market, talk the talk, but can’t walk the walk for critical workloads. Stratus Director of Product Management Denny Lane resets the definitions of fault tolerance and high availability.
Has the economic meltdown taken its toll on your business? Is the endless onslaught of bad news making it difficult to maintain a positive perspective? The good news is that despite the economic downturn, there’s never been a better time to raise the bar for your IT capabilities. Mature virtualization solutions, new affordable uptime solutions, powerful integrated capabilities and an increased focus on operational simplicity all enable businesses like yours to enhance IT operations — without biting off too much of your budget. Here are five things you can do immediately and affordably to add value to your business.
The long migration to electronic health records (EHRs) in the U.S. is set to speed up with the funding authorized by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009. But what are the specific risks when clinicians can’t access electronic health records? How far-reaching are the consequences when EHR data is lost, or its integrity is compromised? This paper looks at the mission-critical role of EHR systems, and introduces availability solutions that build in uptime protection to ensure the continuity of operation that both caregivers and patients can depend on.

Testing is critical to the success of any application. In fact,
your software is only as good as the testing team behind it
and their ability to identify bugs before they find their way
into production. Practically speaking, that means that
building and nurturing an effective testing team is mission
critical. But, of course, doing so is a lot easier said
That's because to be successful, today’s testing teams need
to be cross-functional, efficient, and focused on the right
things. They also have to be fully bought in and worthy of
deep trust. As a result, finding the right candidates can be a
challenge, so you have to get creative.
Not only that, to attract and retain the best talent, you need
to keep them motivated by giving them ample opportunities
to learn and advance their career, while not weighing them
down with the burden of time-consuming and unnecessary
administrative tasks. Instead, you want to equip your team
with the right tools to enable and empower them.

The digital revolution is transforming every industry. Yet it also brings new challenges: threats to the security and Availability of mission-critical data and services.
Approximately 80% of IT decision-makers say their organization has an Availability gap, that is, a failure to meet recovery requirements—a common issue across all industries. 75% say they also have a data protection gap, meaning they are unable to protect their data frequently enough to ensure that business units’ expectations against data loss are being met.

Businesses receive a number of benefits from running their IT operations within virtualized cloud environments, including: automation, economics and efficieny. Yet, as more mission-critical applications and workloads are run within cloud environments, IT staff lack the means for effective management. Businesses need new tools that meet cloud-era demands and deliver the same benefits as cloud computing itself: automation, economics and efficiency.
The primary goal of this guide is not simply to provide a checklist of tasks, but to help you develop an understanding of the disaster recovery (DR) planning process and the principles that underlie it. Before getting into the details, let’s consider first just what this guide will do for you and equally importantly, what it will not do. What this guide will do is to lay out a framework for DR planning that keeps things conceptually simple and helps you know what steps must be carried out and why, without a lot of jargon or unnecessary formality.
Mid-sized businesses have long struggled to protect their IT systems. Many firms are inadequately protected and mistakenly think that a disaster is rare and won’t happen to them anytime soon. This custom Yankee Group Report uses customer interviews, statistical data and Yankee Group SMB survey results to examine disaster recovery (DR) issues.
The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN) must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and overall corporate productivity.

VMware vCloud® Government Service provided by Carpathia® is an enterprise-class hybrid cloud solution built on vSphere®, which empowers government customers to leverage existing investments in applications and infrastructure. As a result, government agencies can avoid the cost and complexity of re-architecting and retraining sta for public cloud infrastructure that is radically dierent from what is in place today. Instead of operating a combination of onsite and osite IT environments and struggling to maintain both new and legacy applications and infrastructure, vCloud Government Service provides the right mix of internal controls with the ability to securely scale to meet demand for IT resources. As you contemplate migrating basic workloads and/or mission-critical and sensitive data to the cloud, be sure to address these top 5 considerations.
At Wasabi, we believe that storage should be simple, inexpensive, interchangeable, reliable, fast and readily available to anyone who needs it. Just like bandwidth or electricity. Not only that it is mission critical. As data storage needs grow, both in terms of volume and leverage-ability, next generation cloud storage will become more and more of a necessity. In this White Paper Wasabi discusses that and more through their ‘5 Immutable Laws for Storing ALL Your Data in the Cloud.’

Webroot commissioned a study to gauge the prevalence of web-borne attacks, their consequences, and how IT pros are responding. Among the results, the vast majority of companies surveyed experienced one or more types of web-borne attacks in 2012. The survey report also includes recommendations—such as deploying a secure web gateway—for responding to this new threat environment. Key findings include:
• 8 in10 companies experienced web-borne attacks in 2012
• The majority of respondents reported significant impacts such as increased help desk time, reduced employee productivity and disruption of business activities
• Secure web gateways are a critical component of an effective defense against web-borne threats

Making the Right Decisions for Your Company's Innovation Needs
Technology and R&D leaders contend daily with the daunting pace of technological change in their core products and platforms. Recognizing both new tech opportunities and disruptive threats, many managers have responded with tech scouting and tech landscaping programs. Building on these efforts, in the past few years a new mainstream has begun to adopt tech scouting as a mission-critical competency.
Download this paper to learn how we examine the pros and cons of both internal (build) and outsourced (buy) tech scouting approaches. Then we will discuss various hybrid options that combine the best of “build” and “buy,” depending on your company’s existing structure and level of innovation maturity.

Mobile devices help clinicians improve the quality of patient care and save lives by improving staff communication and collaboration, and by providing instant access to a wealth of mission-critical information — from real-time lab results to a change in a patient’s condition or verification of the “5 rights” of medication administration at the patient bedside. In addition, mobility also helps healthcare organizations comply with important governmental and regulatory safety standards, without tasking an already overburdened nursing staff with additional paperwork. This white paper provides guidance for planning and implementing a clinical mobility solution in today’s healthcare environment, including a five-step roadmap to help key stakeholders identify needs.
