From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded.
The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp

As the shift into a digital economy continues to accelerate, companies must out-innovate, outthink, and outpace their competition. Businesses must embrace change and transform to become the disruptors in their industries rather than wait to be disrupted by their competitors.
In the face of this pressure to evolve, organizations need to transform IT to reduce both the capital and operational costs of legacy IT. They must offload repeatable and time-intensive manual tasks like backup, disaster recovery, and service deployment to software and policy-driven automation.
When it comes to effectively and efficiently protecting growing volumes of data, midsized organizations face unique
challenges. That is because they live in a world of constraints that are both operational and budgetary in nature. Cloud
disaster recovery offers new options for these organizations—they can optimize their data protection economics by
integrating on-premises protection solutions with cloud-based backup and recovery methods. Dell EMC’s cloud-ready
solutions, particularly its Integrated Data Protection Appliances with native cloud extension capabilities, along with its Data
Protection Software working in conjunction with its Data Domain backup storage appliances, provide cloud disaster
recovery with flexible features. These solutions enhance operational efficiency and provide midsized organizations with
clear economic and operational benefits.

Many premises-based phone system (PBX) manufacturers claim that the five year costs of their systems are lower than an equivalent cloud alternative. What the premises guys don’t tell you about is all the extra little hidden costs that come as a result of the limitations of the hardware and software in their systems. This guide will provide you with useful questions to ask your PBX manufacturer to ensure that you're getting the full picture on the cost of their system.
Questions to Ask During an Evaluation:
• Have you sized this system for my peak demand?
• Have you factored in the cost of site redundancy?
• How many hours of call recording are included?
• How is mobility supported? Do calls route in an out of the PBX for call treatment?
• What are the annual maintenance costs of the hardware and software in this system?
• Which third party systems have you integrated this PBX with?

This whitepaper explores the new SPARC S7 server features and then compares this
offering to a similar x86 offering.
The key characteristics of the SPARC S7 to be highlighted are:
? Designed for scale-out and cloud infrastructures
? SPARC S7 processor with greater core performance than the latest Intel Xeon E5
? Software in Silicon which offers hardware-based features such as data acceleration
The SPARC S7 is then compared to a similar x86 solution from three different
perspectives, namely performance, risk and cost.
Performance matters as business markets are
driving IT to provide an environment that:
? Continuously provides real-time results.
? Processes more complex workload stacks.
? Optimizes usage of per-core software licenses.

Datacenter improvements have thus far focused on cost reduction and point solutions. Server consolidation, cloud computing, virtualization, and the implementation of flash storage capabilities have all helped reduce server sprawl, along with associated staffing and facilities costs. Converged systems — which combine compute, storage, and networking into a single system — are particularly effective in enabling organizations to reduce operational and staff expenses. These software-defined systems require only limited human intervention. Code imbedded in the software configures hardware and automates many previously manual processes, thereby dramatically reducing instances of human error. Concurrently, these technologies have enabled businesses to make incremental improvements to customer engagement and service delivery processes and strategies.
Jusqu’à présent, les améliorations du datacenter se sont limitées à la réduction des coûts et à des solutions ponctuelles. La consolidation des serveurs, le Cloud computing, la virtualisation et l’implémentation de stockage Flash ont contribué à réduire la prolifération des serveurs, ainsi que les coûts de personnel et d’installations associés. Regroupant ressources de calcul, de stockage et de réseau au sein d’une même solution, les systèmes convergés se révèlent particulièrement efficaces dans la baisse des dépenses de personnel et de fonctionnement. Ces systèmes définis par logiciel (software-defined) exigent peu d’interventions humaines. Le code intégré dans le logiciel configure le matériel et automatise de nombreux processus autrefois manuels, ce qui réduit considérablement le risque d’erreurs humaines. Ensemble, ces technologies ont permis aux entreprises d’améliorer progressivement les processus et stratégies d’engagement client et de prestation de services.
Der Schwerpunkt der Verbesserungen im Rechenzentrum lag bisher hauptsächlich auf Kostensenkungen und punktuellen Lösungen. Serverkonsolidierung, Cloud-Computing, Virtualisierung und die Implementierung von Flash-Speicherfunktionen haben alle dazu beigetragen, das unkontrollierte Wachstum von Servern und die damit verbundenen Personal- und Anlagenkosten zu reduzieren. Konvergente Systeme, bei denen Rechner, Speicher und Netzwerk in einem einzigen System kombiniert werden, können Unternehmen auf besonders effektive Weise bei der Reduzierung von Betriebs- und Personalkosten unterstützen. Für diese softwarebasierten Systeme sind nur begrenzte Benutzereingriffe erforderlich. In die Software eingebetteter Code übernimmt die Konfiguration der Hardware und die Automatisierung zahlreicher ehemals manueller Prozesse und sorgt so für eine drastische Reduzierung von Bedienerfehlern.

Most organizations are in the midst of some form of digital transformation (DX),
transforming how they bring products and services to the market—and ultimately
deliver value to their customers. But DX initiatives also bring complexity for the
network operations team. With business-critical services distributed across
multiple clouds, this leads to potential performance issues, especially at
Given these realities, it is no wonder that software-defined wide-area network
(SD-WAN) technology is rapidly going mainstream. Unfortunately, SD-WAN is an
example of the paradox of DX: transformative technology can potentially move the
business to the next level, but the expanded attack surface it creates can expose
the organization to significant risk. That is why an SD-WAN deployment, like every
other DX effort, should be accompanied by a security transformation (SX) that
rethinks outdated principles, broadens protection beyond the data center, and
integrates the security archit

organizations to look elsewhere for a more effective
network solution to address distributed traffic across
remote sites and branch offices.
Some of the specific issues organizations face with
their traditional WANs include:
- High total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Lengthy provisioning cycles
- Performance degradation with the growth of cloud
- Inadequate redundancy and resiliency
- Lack of application-aware connectivity
To better manage WAN investments, enterprises are
adopting a new approach for their distributed branch
office networks. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN)
offers improved performance, agility, and operational
flexibility plus significant cost savings. But not all SDWAN
solutions are created equal.
