Businesses of all sizes and industries have struggled to implement a hybrid IT environment that can meet their most critical needs, without disrupting business. The challenge is especially acute for midsized firms whose limited IT resources are facing pressure to adopt a never-ending torrent of technology innovations. In an effort to create a hybrid IT environment, many businesses end up with a multiple siloed infrastructure deployment options that consume increasing amounts of management time, effort and budget, while never quite meeting business needs.

According to IDC, SDS is transforming the IT deployment and consumption of storage resources creating peace of mind. So, deploying SDS is not a matter of “if” but a matter of “when”! SDS survey showed that 75% of enterprises have deployed or are considering to deploy SDS in their environment.
This white paper looks at how 61% of enterprises that deployed SDS have realized tangible benefits, such as:
• Reduction in CAPEX/OPEX costs
• Ease of management
• Reduction in provisioning time
AOS delivers powerful, intent-driven automation of network services in vendor-agnostic environments by delivering it as an easily consumable service in response to consumer-specified intent. Network devices serve packets, AOS services serve application workloads.
According to numerous studies, 70-80% of outages are due to configuration change applied to a living system, and not due to initial deployment. Initial, one-time deployment can be seen as sort of a “hello world” application; the real complexities arise as the system evolves. With AOS, configuration, telemetry, and expectations are derived from the single source of truth - the intent - in an idempotent fashion, and as such there is no implementation difference between initial deployment or change management.

If you are considering the right deployment model for your contact center, economic guidelines can help you choose the solution that is best for your company. Cloud, on-premises or hybrid.
Just a few years ago, businesses were still unsure of the viability of moving their contact centers and other critical enterprise systems to the cloud. Since then, with the decrease of cloud costs, and the corresponding increase in security and, the viability and total cost of ownership of cloud deployments are attracting more and more companies.
This eBook will cover how different criteria can affect a choice between a cloud or on-premises contact center, including:
• The size of your contact center, and business requirements such as customer journey management
• The location and quantity of contact centers being managed
• The need for scalability, speed of deployment, and maintenance requirements
"Principled Technologies executed four typical deployment and management scenarios using both HPE Synergy and Cisco UCS.
They found that HPE Synergy saved 71.5 minutes and 86 steps, and used four fewer tools compared to Cisco UCS. In a hypothetical 200-node datacenter, that’s a total of 9 work weeks, or just over 2 months’ time savings on routine tasks."

In the past, desktops, business apps, and critical infrastructure were all located behind the firewall. Today, more and more is happening off-network. More roaming users. More corporate owned laptops accessing the internet from other networks. More cloud apps, mean that users don’t need to be on the corporate network to get work done. And more branch offices connecting directly to the internet.
Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo

Learn why Gartner believes that more than 70% of new DBMS deployments will leverage the cloud for at least one use case by 2018. Find out how to assess modern data management capabilities and determine which DBMS best meets your business requirements.
Today’s businesses are rapidly transforming to prepare for the changes taking place in the global economy. Companies of all sizes can benefit from tools that automate the deployment and ongoing maintenance of server environments. Put another way, in today’s digital economy, where users need access to intelligible data faster, IT organizations must employ tools that automate the delivery of IT as a Service (ITaaS).
Dell EMC’s Intelligent Automation simplifies the management and maintenance of its PowerEdge server hardware. Designed to drive down the cost and resources associated with server lifecycle management, Intelligent Automation relies on integrated Dell Remote Access Controller(iDRAC) and OpenManage server management software to deliver reliable and efficient automation to PowerEdge Servers.

In December 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study to determine how enterprise organizations are structured from an IT departmental perspective. The study explored two types of IT: digital controllers and digital transformers; and the trends and challenges seen in PC provisioning. Digital controllers are often associated with top-down approach, linear structure, and emphasize security and accuracy. In contrast, digital transformers focus on innovation, employee-and customer-centricity, and prioritize speed and flexibility. By understanding the two groups, enterprises can overcome challenges that arise from PC life-cycle management. By investing in existing PC management tools and partnering with a company that specializes in PC deployment and management, firms can empower employees to better serve customers

If your organization is one of the 95% of enterprises
that operate in the cloud, you are already grappling
with cloud security. And if your organization is one of
the 85% of companies that use multiple Infrastructureas-a-Service
(IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
clouds, you have additional issues to consider.
Compared to the days when organizations managed
everything on-premises or only had a handful of cloud
deployments, this new multi-cloud world exacerbates
the expansion of the attack surface and makes threat
containment and accountability more difficult. Further,
pressure on security teams to protect everything in
the multi-cloud environment is leading to reactive and
expensive threat management.
If you are a security leader tasked with meeting the
challenges of a multi-cloud environment, eventually
you’ll find that siloed cloud security strategies fall short
of the mark. But don’t wait. Now is the time to consider
a holistic security approach that reclaims control from

According to recent ESG research, 70% of IT respondents indicated they plan to invest in HCI over the next 24 months. IT planners are increasingly turning toward HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions to simplify and speed up infrastructure deployments, ease day-to-day operational management, reduce costs, and increase IT speed and agility.
HCI consists of a nodal-based architecture whereby all the required virtualized compute, storage, and networking assets are self-contained inside individual nodes. These nodes are, in effect, discrete virtualized computing resources “in a box.” However, they are typically grouped together to provide resiliency, high performance, and flexible resource pooling. And since HCI appliances can scale out to large configurations over time, these systems can provide businesses with investment protection and a simpler, more agile, and cost-effective way to deploy virtualized computing infrastructure.
