Read this ESG research brief to learn how to improve visibility across distributed computing environments without increasing staff or tools. Download “The Importance of a Common Distributed Data Services Layer” to learn why ensuring visibility in a distributed network environment is crucial and how a common distributed data services layer to collect, process and share data ensures that network operations teams are able to provide better digital experiences, mitigate risk and respond to changing environments.

Distributed computing has been pervasive in IT organisations for nearly two decades, but the tables are beginning to turn.
This whitepaper discusses Rackspace's experience in quick deployment and hosting of VDI environments.
Part 3 in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge."
As distributed edge environments become more critical, physical security becomes more important. Nobody would leave their data center wide open for anyone to enter, but that’s exactly how many organizations treat their edge computing sites. Often, they consist of a rack or two of gear in a non-dedicated location, perhaps a janitor’s closet, with little to no physical security.
Fill out your information and click "Register" to watch the third event in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, “Customer Demands at the Edge: Protect me from Downtime!” This webinar originally aired on November 9th, 2017.
In this webinar, we discuss physical security best practices, including environmental issues such as temperature and humidity monitoring. We also update partners on the physical security features of the latest APC racks and the NetBotz line of security and environmental appliances, cameras and sensors.

As organizational needs change and workloads become increasingly distributed, a key realization is emerging: traditional approaches to backup and recovery may no longer be sufficient for many organizations. These companies may have discovered that their existing tools are not keeping pace with other advancements in their computing environments, such as scale-out storage systems and hyperconverged systems, which seek to reduce data center complexity and help manage surging storage costs.
This IDC MarketScape includes vendors that create and sell software in the client virtualization space, with a focus on centralized virtual desktops, distributed virtual desktops, and virtual user session (VUS) software. Vendors that only offer user state virtualization and/or software products that support virtual client computing deployments but not one of the aforementioned products will not be included in the IDC MarketScape graphic or profiles. This is because these types of solutions address a specific or niche need in the market but do not, by themselves, provide a complete software solution that an end customer can purchase on a standalone basis or in addition to a Microsoft Server version.
VMware Identity Manager provides single sign-on (SSO) to a broad range of SaaS applications, as well as legacy applications published via virtual desktop platforms from VMware and Citrix, and browser-based and native mobile apps. VMware Identity Manager also provides application provision¬ing and conditional (adaptive, or risk-based) access controls, and can be deployed either on-premises or in the cloud. In this report, 451 Research analyzes VMware’s strategic effort to bridge the legacy on-premises world (which still represents most of its business) with the more highly distributed and heterogeneous worlds of mobile and cloud computing. 451 also examines VMware’s re-entry into the IDaaS market is to extend their market reach beyond what VDI and EMM might accomplish individually.
The Edge Completes the Cloud
Edge computing delivers the decentralized complement to today’s hyperscale cloud and legacy data centers. To maximize application potential and user experience, enterprise architects and technology innovation leaders need to plan distributed computing solutions.
Enabling this thinking is that although the cloud is becoming mainstream, that does not imply that all workloads will be placed in the cloud during the next decade or so. Technical incompatibilities, decades of embedded business logic in mainframe applications, government regulations and simple economics all conspire to keep some workloads out of the cloud, driving us toward a hybrid multi cloud future.
Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity.
Beyond these issues however, CISOs also face the progressively difficult responsibility of securing the distributed enterprise. Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.
For security and IT pros concerned with protecting sensitive information across multiple endpoints and applications. Explore how cloud can enable us to go back to basics of security to address the challenges of distributed computing and make our organizations more secure.
IBM Platform HPC Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) tool offers a 3-year total cost of ownership view of your distributed computing environment and savings that you could potentially experience by using IBM Platform HPC in place of competing cluster management software.
Software Defined Networking (SDN) allows organizations to deliver networking with the same level of flexibility and agility as virtualization has allowed them to deliver other parts of their infrastructure. This free webinar will examine current networking architectures at a high level.
