This white paper describes an energy audit tool which can lead to significant decreases in the costs of running a data center. Thermal Zone Mapping (TZM) is a visualization tool developed to present in graphical format high level thermal metrics developed by HP and targeted for use as part of the HP Data Center Thermal Assessment service. This tool uses data generated from computer models of the data center and generates metrics, which are then post-processed and visualized in the three-dimensional data center space.
With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more.
With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information.
Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.
Efficient desktop application management is essential in normal day-to-day operations of any company. Whether you are introducing a new application or implementing an OS migration, the goal is the same: minimize disruptions and ensure user productivity throughout the process.
The Microsoft Assessment and Planning Solution Accelerator (MAP) tool makes it easy for you to assess your current IT infrastructure and determine the right Microsoft technologies for your needs. The data and analysis provided by this tool can help simplify planning a Windows Vista migration.
To perform a successful and cost-effective Windows Vista migration, organizations must have a readiness plan in place. Assessing readiness can help your organization understand the current level of capability and maturity, and provide a guide for addressing trouble spots.
On March 10, 2008, F5, a leader in application delivery, and WhiteHat Security, an innovator in application security assessment, announced they would be partnering to create an integrated Web application assessment and firewall technology. This product integration will incorporate WhiteHat’s Sentinel assessment technology and F5’s ASM attack blocking technology into a single solution.
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.
Today's IT executives are not only expected to create and maintain high-availability IT environments, but they are also expected to implement green initiatives to satisfy customers, analysts, and government agencies that are worried about the impact of modern, energy-thirsty data centers on the environment. Is such a dual mandate reasonable? Can companies be expected to maintain service levels and reduce their carbon footprints at the same time? The White Paper offers a description of the different types of services available to improved energy efficiency data center design and a prescription for successful implementation.
