Now there's an innovative new way to move enterprise applications to the public cloud while actually reducing risks and trade-offs. It's called multi-cloud storage, and it's an insanely simple, reliable, secure way to deploy your enterprise apps in the cloud and also move them between clouds and on-premises infrastructure, with no vendor lock-in. Multi-cloud storage allows you to simplify your infrastructure, meet your service-level agreements, and save a bundle.
As businesses plunge into the digital future, no asset will have a greater impact on success than data. The ability to collect, harness, analyze, protect, and manage data will determine which businesses disrupt their industries, and which are disrupted; which businesses thrive, and which disappear. But traditional storage solutions are not designed to optimally handle such a critical business asset. Instead, businesses need to adopt an all-flash data center.
In their new role as strategic business enablers, IT leaders have the responsibility to ensure that their businesses are protected, by investing in flexible, future-proof flash storage solutions. The right flash solution can deliver on critical business needs for agility, rapid growth, speed-to-market, data protection, application performance, and cost-effectiveness—while minimizing the maintenance and administration burden.
Applications are the engines that drive today’s digital businesses. When the infrastructure that powers those applications is difficult to administer, or fails, businesses and their IT organizations are severely impacted. Traditionally, IT assumed much of the responsibility to ensure availability and performance. In the digital era, however, the industry needs to evolve and reset the requirements on vendors.
DPI software is made to inspect packets at high wire speeds and a critical factor is the throughput and resources required. Keeping the amount of resources that integrated DPI and application classification technology requires low is critical. The fewer cores (on a multi-core processor) and the less on-board memory an engine needs, the better. Multi-threading provides almost linear scalability on multi-core systems. In addition, highly-optimized flow tracking is required for handling millions of concurrent subscribers.
When your solution needs deep packet inspection (DPI) application awareness as a key enabling feature, highly reliable and accurate identification of network traffic and applications - in real time - is an expected requirement. Whether it’s for software defined networks to enable policy control and critical traffic steering or to protect corporate networks, IoT devices, and cloud platforms from malicious attacks, it’s crucial to choose the right DPI solution.
According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.
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.
Business leaders expect two things from IT: keep mission-critical applications available and high performing 24x7 and, if something does happen, recover to be back in business quickly and without losing any critical data so there is no impact on revenue stream. Of course, there is a gap between this de facto expectation from nontechnical business leaders and what current technology is actually capable of delivering. For mission-critical workloads, which are most often hosted on databases, organizations may choose to implement high availability (HA) technologies within the database to avoid downtime and data loss.
The growth and importance of edge and cloud-based applications are driving the data center industry to rethink the optimum level of redundancy of physical infrastructure equipment.

For a backup solution to be considered flexible, it needs to satisfy
several key business requirements. It should integrate seamlessly
with any servers you’re running and provide full support for
all the applications your business uses. It should enable you to
protect assets in different parts of the country or overseas. And
it should let you manage and monitor backups from anywhere.
A flexible backup solution gives you everything you need to
protect the technology investments you make now and in the
future. So instead of having to buy multiple solutions to support
your changing needs, you can have a single solution that adapts
to fit your environment. We call that flexible deployment.
