IT organizations are aggressively virtualizing their data centers, creating private cloud environments that help them reduce capital infrastructure and data center costs, improve security, and simplify management. However, potential hurdles, if left unaddressed, can get in the way of fully benefiting from a private cloud. Download this summary to learn more.
Enterprises are rapidly embracing cloud services to speed innovation and drive cost savings. The most innovative IT organizations in these enterprises are shifting to software-defined “virtual data centers” that connect, aggregate, and configure public and private computing resources in unprecedented ways. These IT organizations use open private cloud infrastructure within a corporate data center or at a hosting site (managed cloud services) in conjunction with public cloud services to meet all their business requirements.

Today’s mega IT trends – cloud computing, big data, mobile and social media –have dramatically altered how enterprises work, requiring datacenters to find new, more flexible and cost effective ways to meet computing demands.
For most datacenters, the path toward tomorrow's compute paradigm mandates an investment in standardization and consolidation as well as a more robust adoption of enterprise virtualization software, along with cloud system software to extend that virtualized infrastructure into a true private cloud environment.
Linux has emerged as one of the key elements to a modernization program for a datacenter.
This whitepaper: Describes a 4-stage virtualization maturity lifecycle experienced by many organizations and discusses in detail (using sample project plans) the tasks and capabilities required to succeed at each stage of the maturity lifecycle.
This video describes that maturity lifecycle and the key management activities you will need to get past these tipping points, drive virtualization maturity and deliver virtualization success, at every stage of your virtualization lifecycle.
Layered Tech's engineers created a customized package of virtual private data centers (VPDCs), managed services and disaster recovery solutions that support KANA's clients, large and small. Layered Tech tailored the architecture to meet the highest enterprise security requirements, as well as ensuring that each KANA client can deploy applications that scale to ongoing volume fluctuations.

If it's not already, data center virtualization should be a key component of every IT organization's strategy. This white paper looks at the benefits of data center virtualization and addresses both public and private cloud strategies.
The paper reviews the necessary steps in the evolution to a virtual data center--ranging from aligning with virtual storage to managing your cloud--and highlights how to successfully put those steps into motion.
This paper describes the Symphony VPDC enterprise-grade infrastructure service that provides true high availability enterprise IT environments, supporting development to production, with automated provisioning of servers, network, storage, software and security.
Today's datacenter networks must better adapt to and accommodate business-critical application workloads. Datacenters will have to increasingly adapt to virtualized workloads and to the ongoing enterprise transition to private and hybrid clouds. Pressure will mount on datacenters not only to provide increased bandwidth for 3rd Platform applications such as cloud and data analytics but also to deliver the agility and dynamism necessary to accommodate shifting traffic patterns (with more east-west traffic associated with server-to-server flows, as opposed to the traditional north-south traffic associated with client/server computing). Private cloud and legacy applications will also drive
daunting bandwidth and connectivity requirements. This Technology Spotlight examines the increasing bandwidth requirements in enterprise datacenters, driven by both new and old application workloads, cloud and noncloud in nature. It also looks at how Cisco is meeting the bandwidth challenge posed by 3rd

Integrated computing platforms enable IT to focus on more valuable tasks that will speed time-to-market and improve application deployment and availability to better support the business. HP ConvergedSystem 700x with VMware vSphere is a flexible preconfigured solution designed for small to large enterprise and service provider deployments. Built on HP ProLiant or HP BladeSystem servers, HP StoreServ storage, and HP 5900-Series and HP Flex10 networking. HP ConvergedSystem 700x with VMware vSphere solutions are designed to address virtualization complexity, expedite virtualization deployments, and serve as the foundation for private cloud implementations. Read this whitepaper to learn more about ESG’s analysis of the costs and benefits—and ultimate economic value—associated with deploying and managing HP ConvergedSystem 700x with VMware vSphere versus a comparable conventional data center infrastructure comprised of discrete, nonintegrated compute, storage, network, and management compon
So far, most data centers have virtualized their least-critical workloads as a matter of basic cost containment. Virtualizing mission-critical applications is still forthcoming for the majority,though, largely due to infrastructural concerns. Complicating matters is the shift in IT purchasing decisions from IT to business management.
Integrated Computing Platforms (ICPs), private cloud computing, and public cloud services all leverage virtualization to achieve a number of IT and business goals, including increased ROI, reduced OpEx, and business process improvement. Now more than ever, it makes sense to explore the benefits of ICPs.

HP Cloud Solution for Microsoft is designed to provide a scalable, high-performance integrated infrastructure optimized for virtual environments built on Microsoft Hyper-V. Designed and built according to the Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track reference architecture, HP Virtual System for Microsoft comes standard with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 (which includes Hyper-V) and is designed to deliver top performance for a wide range of virtualized applications, including Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, and SharePoint. This paper will focus on ESG’s analysis of the costs and benefits—and ultimate economic value—associated with deploying and managing HP Cloud Solution for Microsoft, versus a comparable conventional data center infrastructure comprised of discreet, non-integrated compute, storage, network, and management components.
The impact of cloud computing and software-defined networking (SDN), including network virtualization, has convinced large enterprises and customers building private, public, and hybrid cloud networks to consider new approaches to help them meet their current and future data center switching needs. Data center switching platforms are constantly evolving, delivering increasingly better performance while simplifying network operations.
In most cases, your physical data center will not disappear as these growth trends play out. Instead, it will evolve into a hybrid environment, incorporating a mixture of physical and virtual computing technologies—including both public and private clouds. You’ll face even more challenging security risks within these hybrid environments than you have protecting your physical data center today. And you won’t be alone with these challenges when making the shift to a hybrid data center architecture.
