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.
CIOs are on a constant quest to understand what infrastructure will provide the best fit, at the lowest risk and cost. In today’s evolving data center, defining the proper use of data center assets, and how cloud-based platforms may or may not fit into the mix is critical to business success. With the abundance of cloud offerings in the market place, physical infrastructure is no longer an enterprise IT requirement. Cloud has established itself as an excellent option for infrastructure outsourcing.
Dominate trends in IT today such as Cloud, Mobile and Smarter Physical Infrastructures are generating massive amount of corporate data. The inherent value of this data coupled with the increasing complexity of IT environments is forcing those tasked with data protection to re-evaluate their approaches. Join this session to understand how you can reduce the cost and complexity of backup and recovery while ensuring comprehensive data protection across virtual environments, core application and remote sites.

Use of cloud computing by enterprise companiesis growing rapidly. A greater dependence on cloud-based applications means businesses must rethink the level of redundancy of the physical infrastructure
equipment (power, cooling, networking) remaining on-premise, at the “Edge”. In this paper, we describe and critique the common physical infrastructure practices seen today, propose a method of analyzing the resiliency needed, and discuss best practices that will ensure employees remain connected to their business critical applications.

Microsoft® System Center Virtual Machine Manager provides a comprehensive management solution for the virtualized data center that enables increased physical server utilization and centralized management of virtual machine infrastructure.
VMware virtual machines are hardware-independent so any physical server can serve as a recovery target for any virtual machine. Organizations can significantly reduce the cost of hardware for disaster recovery by repurposing underutilized existing servers for recovery targets and disaster recovery testing. VMware Infrastructure also simplifies and accelerates recovery, helping IT organizations meet their time-to-recovery targets.

Enterprises of all sizes are undergoing massive data center modernization initiatives. They are looking to use technology to cut costs and drive competitive advantage. At the core of many of these transformations is an effort to reengineer IT delivery models to enable cloudlike flexibility of resources, and reduce both capital expenditures and operational overhead. That is giving rise to the private cloud movement. Indeed, private cloud adoption is accelerating and maturing. IT organizations are looking to the private cloud for the elasticity it can provide to add or remove resources as required. In fact, ESG research reveals that more than three-quarters of organizations would classify their private cloud deployment as either an advanced internal cloud or a basic internal cloud. Those organizations that have virtualized at least half of their production applications are more than twice as likely as their more physical infrastructure-dependent counterparts to categorize their environme
