One of the fundamental decisions in the design of data centers, server rooms and network closets is which uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to use. You cannot be certain that the power you receive from your local utility will be suitable for your equipment, or that it will always be available. And even when you are receiving good-quality power from the utility, equipment inside your facility (such as electric motors) can introduce power problems.
A network/server UPS system conditions input power 24x7 to ensure that your equipment always receives reliable power and protection from damaging and disruptive power problems. A network/server UPS system also supports your equipment during power failures, providing enough battery backup runtime to outlast shorter outages. During longer outages, the UPS system will provide enough runtime to save files and gracefully shut down systems or to ensure that equipment is powered until standby generators are ready to support the load.
As IT evolves towards a more business-aligned position, it must seek out new ways of working that support more effective operations, service creation, and service delivery. These include technologies, processes, and a culture that supports higher levels of accountability, as well as more dynamic responsiveness to business needs.
Journaling is a powerful feature, one that IBM has continued to develop and improve over the years. Yet, depending upon your business requirements, you probably still need more protection against downtime than journaling alone can provide. This white paper will cover what you need to know about journaling, what it can do and how it supports and cooperates with high availability software.
Organizations are faced with providing secure authentication, authorization, and Single Sign On (SSO) access to thousands of users accessing hundreds of disparate applications. Ensuring that each user has only the necessary and authorized permissions, managing the user’s identity throughout its life cycle, and maintaining regulatory compliance and auditing further adds to the complexity. These daunting challenges are solved by Identity and Access Management (IAM) software.
Traditional IAM supports on-premises applications, but its ability to support Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based applications, mobile computing, and new technologies such as Big Data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is limited. Supporting on-premises IAM is expensive, complex, and time-consuming, and frequently incurs security gaps.
Identity as a Service (IDaaS) is an SaaS-based IAM solution deployed from the cloud. By providing seamless SSO integration to legacy on-premises applications and modern cloud-

The goal of ESG Lab reports is to educate IT professionals about data center technology products for companies of all types and sizes.
ESG Lab reports are not meant to replace the evaluation process that should be conducted before making purchasing decisions, but rather to provide insight into these emerging technologies. Our objective is to go over some of the more valuable feature/functions of products, show how they can be used to solve real customer problems and identify any areas needing improvement.
ESG Lab's expert third party perspective is based on our own hands on testing as well as on interviews with customers who use these products in production environments.
The ways in which the Internet supports our everyday lives have become richer, more engaging, and more mobile. This innovation is driven by the visionaries, designers, developers, and managers of the web experiences that users consume every day. By exploring new ways to solve challenges and improve products and services that enrich our lives, developers and business owners have stretched the Internet to support use cases for which it was never designed. In order to succeed, modern web experiences must seem simple to end-users, even though most ultimately require complex design and technology to deliver.
