The recent release of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study on data center energy efficiency is adding fuel to the fire in the research and development of new ways to reduce energy use in centers. The findings, summarized on the EPA website, are staggering: Data centers consumed about 60 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2006, roughly 1.5 percent of total US electricity consumption -Energy consumption of servers and data centers has doubled in the past five years and is expected to almost double again in the next five years to more than 100 billion kWh, costing about $7.4 billion annually.

According to industry analysts, email volume in organizations is growing by more than 30% annually, and the average user receives 7MB of data per day via email. if not more. As a result of this growth, the handling of email has become a critical business, IT and regulatory issue - driving the need for email archiving solutions. Most organizations looking for an email archiving solution are motivated by four reasons: mailbox/server management, compliance/records retention, eDiscovery/litigation support, and knowledge management/IP protection. In addition to these challenges, IT departments want to know how to control costs of the email environment, while keeping important data accessible for business, legal and regulatory users.

Server systems are, by definition, more important than individual endpoints. They must provide services to hundred, or even thousands, of endpoints and, naturally, must be secure. Traditional anti-virus (AV) solutions can provide protection for servers. However, constantly running AV processes, along with potentially frequent signature updates, can consume resources that could otherwise be used to provide application services to users. Read this evaluation by Tolly, commissioned by Lumension, as the dive into the impact on server resources of the alternative application control solution compared with traditional AV solutions from Microsoft Corp, Symantec Corp, and Trend Micro, Inc.

This online eBook provides insight and advice on how to build an effective disaster recovery strategy in the evolving world of virtual infrastructures, while mitigating the impact of so-called 'Black Swan' events in the datacenter.
The benefits of server virtualization extend far beyond infrastructure savings and server consolidation. An emerging technology trend is for IT managers worldwide to deploy virtualization to keep applications online and protect their businesses.
Virtualization reduces the number of physical servers IT needs to provision and maintain, but it also transforms the data protection paradigm. Now businesses can recover from failures in minutes, not hours, with unprecedented affordability. The key to achieving the best business uptime and cost savings is the effective design of storage management and data protection. This white paper outlines an end-to-end storage and data protection architecture optimized for VMware vSphere and Microsoft® Hyper-V environments.
The perimeter continues to dissolve, and the definition of endpoint is evolving, according to results of the SANS 2016 Endpoint Security Survey, now in its third year.
As we might expect, 90% or more consider desktops, servers, routers, firewalls and printers to be endpoints that need to be protected. After that, respondents include other less-typical devices in their definition of endpoints that warrant protection: 71% include building security (access/ surveillance), 59% include employee-owned mobile devices and 40% consider industrial control systems as endpoints that need to be protected. Some respondents also consider POS devices, smart cars, emulated endpoints in the cloud and wearables as endpoints needing protection, highlighting the diversity of thinking among respondents.
