Windows Server 2016 is an important release in enabling
IT to deliver on the promise of the third platform.
It provides a path to a seamless, integrated cloud
environment—incorporating public, private and hybrid
models—with the software-defined data center as the
hub. In migrating to this next-generation data center
model, it is essential that IT leaders choose the right
partner for the compute platform, as well as storage,
networking and systems management
This white paper shows how Microsoft and Cisco have come together and developed a best-of-breed private cloud ecosystem that combines Cisco’s compute and network expertise with Microsoft’s single operating system, data management, and virtualisation capabilities.
Virtualization has transformed the data center over the past decade. IT departments use virtualization to consolidate multiple server workloads onto a smaller number of more powerful servers. They use virtualization to scale existing applications by
adding more virtual machines to support them, and they deploy new applications without having to purchase additional servers to do so. They achieve greater resource utilization by balancing workloads across a large pool of servers in real time—and they respond more quickly to changes in workload or server availability by moving virtual machines between physical servers. Virtualized environments support private clouds on which application engineers can now provision their own virtual servers and networks in environments that expand and contract on demand.
When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.
The exponential growth of cloud continues, from the adoption of public and private cloud to the mass consumerization of IT and the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT). The rapid pace of this change is posing a challenge for your business, as increasing volumes of traffic place greater demands on network infrastructure.

A significant paradigm shift occurred in the last few years. Much like other technological shifts of
the last decade — when cloud computing changed the way we do business, agile changed the way
we develop software and Amazon changed the way we shop — Zero Trust presents us with a new
paradigm in how we secure our organizations, our data and our employees.
While difficult to identify the precise tipping point, one thing is certain: what were once
extraordinarily high-profile, damaging breaches are no longer extraordinary. In just the last
18 months, Yahoo, Accenture, HBO, Verizon, Uber, Equifax, Deloitte, the U.S. SEC, the RNC,
the DNC, the OPM, HP, Oracle and a profusion of attacks aimed at the SMB market have all
proven that every organization — public or private — is susceptible.
The epiphany behind the paradigm shift is clear: Widely-accepted security approaches based on
bolstering a trusted network do not work. And they never will. Especially when businesses are
dealing with skill

According to the American Community Survey, tele-commuting jumped 79 percent between 2005 and 2012. More than 9 million American workers did their jobs exclusively from home in 2010, according to the U.S. Census, and 30 million work from home at least once a week. And TechCast at George Washington University estimates as many as 30 percent of U.S. private sector workers could be working from home by 2019. For sales professionals, that proportion is certainly higher. The Telework Research Network found in 2011 that 70 percent of those working from home are in management, professional, sales and office jobs. If you’re in sales, you probably spend a considerable amount of time on the go. And why shouldn’t you? Smartphones offer constant, pocket-sized connectivity. Ubiquitous Wifi threatens to render the cubicle obsolete, and the right social networking strategy can sup-plant a hundred individual pitch meetings.
Organizations looking to deliver a flexible infrastructure that supports new methods of engagement, including customer-facing applications, are turning to cloud for the management of their wired and wireless networks. Discover how to tailor your arguments along a variety of business-aligned pain points and motivations to help you get the backing of key constituents within your organization.
The goal of a Cloud-Managed Network is to make deployment, management and control over network infrastructure devices very easy, offset the need for trained IT staff at remote locations or for geographically dispersed organizations, and it provides both OpEx and CapEx savings. This comprehensive white paper provides you with information needed to successfully guide you through the decision-making process of determining the right network for your business.
To gain transformational benefit from a private and/or hybrid cloud deployment, I&O leaders should look beyond provisioning compute and storage to address the networking domain; those that don't will sacrifice business agility.

Data center requirements are shifting as the business environment evolves to leverage new technologies. Organizations are turning to multicloud environments comprising a mix of private cloud, public cloud, and on-premise infrastructure to best address their unique needs. Understandably, this shift is putting a renewed emphasis on security, automation, orchestration, and agility. IT leaders are responding by building and deploying multicloud data center networks that leverage automation and software-defined networks (SDN) as a cost effective means of providing dynamic network control.
Of course, while many organizations are recognizing the need for a data center upgrade, not all have the same drivers. All, however, need to make a business case for the investment. Here are four common inflection points that can help you to justify the need for data center upgrades that support business goals.
In reality, many applications are far from cloud ready, and some never will be. But almost every new application will be cloud enabled. So how do you evolve your data center into a private cloud and drive hybrid IT by connecting to public clouds, yet still cater for the needs of your legacy software? To try and understand the path to the cloud in greater detail, we’ve created this Infobrief from an extended interview conducted by the team at DatacenterDynamics with Juniper Networks’ Andy Ingram, the Global Vice President for Data Center and Cloud.
Innovative data-driven strategies are enabling organizations to connect with customers and increase operational efficiency as never before. These new initiatives are built on a multitude of applications, such as big-data analytics, supply chain, and factory automation. On average, organizations are now 53% digital as they create new ways of operating and growing their businesses, according to the Computerworld 2017 Forecast Study.
As part of this transformation, enterprises rely increasingly on multivendor, multicloud environments that mix on-premise, private, and public cloud services and workloads. This shift is causing enterprises to increase network capacity; 55% of enterprises in the Computerworld study expect to add network bandwidth in the next 12 months.
