Pulsant is a United Kingdom-based IT infrastructure services
provider focused on the small and medium-sized enterprise
market. It offers public, private, and hybrid cloud services and a
variety of managed, collocation, and professional services.
Pulsant was one of the first cloud service providers to embrace
software-defined networking (SDN) as a way to simplify its IT
infrastructure, unify control of physical and virtual environments,
and reduce capital expenses (capex) and operating expenses
(opex). After evaluating a number of vendors, Pulsant chose
Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) as the best SDN
solution for delivering its hybrid cloud services.
This edition of Unleashing IT showcases the groundswell of
momentum surrounding Cisco® Application Centric Infrastructure
(Cisco ACI™), which fundamentally transforms the way technology is delivered in support of business priorities. Hundreds of organizations are already using the year-old architecture, and we could not have achieved such rapid and widespread adoption without the enthusiasm and support of Intel®, our networking and application partners, and customers.
Digitization is reshaping the business landscape at an unprecedented rate. The disruption of established businesses used to take decades, but natively digital organizations such as Uber, Google and Amazon have disrupted their respective markets in fewer than 10 years. Digital transformation is creating new winners and losers faster than ever before. Exhibit 1 shows that in 1960, on average, businesses remained on the S&P 500 Index for 50 to 60 years; by 1980, the rate of change was cut in half. Based on these trends, by 2025, businesses are forecast to stay on the index for an average of only 12 years. Leveraging this economic data, ZK Research predicts that 75% of the index will turn over in the next 10 years. New market leaders will emerge, and established organizations will struggle to survive.
"Cloud computing, also known as 'IT as a Service', is predicated on delivering IT services on demand, an idea that has support from business leaders as a way to better align IT with business operations. Cloud computing has two key requirements: virtualized applications and seamless support and integration between the server, networking, storage and hypervisor components.
In this paper, we explore these concepts and highlight the critical features necessary to move beyond server virtualization by leveraging key integration capabilities between IT components-with a particular focus on the important role that storage plays in the evolution of the datacenter architecture."
Enterprise network architectures are evolving as a result of the growth of public cloud, proliferation of mobile devices, and organizational requirement to collaborate with global users. In this on-demand webinar, Gartner Research VP and Distinguished Analyst Mark Fabbi and Akamai Technologies' Enterprise Web Experience Product Manager, Greg Lord, will provide insight into
this new trend.
Using templates, administrators can consolidate OS and application management so that only a single instance of a software package is required and managed on a physical machine regardless of the number of virtual environments that use the software.
Virtual appliances have recently been gaining notoriety with IT organizations. These pre-packaged ready to deploy instances of an applicationcreated in a virtual machine or environment can provide significant management savings. While they can be a powerful IT tool, not all virtual appliances are created equally.
