IDC’s research has shown the movement of most IT workloads to the cloud in the coming years. Yet, with all the talk about enterprises moving to the cloud, some of them still wonder if such a move is really cost effective and what business benefits may result. While the answers to such questions vary from workload to workload, one area attracting particular attention is that of the data warehouse.
Many enterprises have substantial investments in data warehousing, with an ongoing cost to managing that resource in terms of software licensing, maintenance fees, operational costs, and hardware. Can it make sense to move to a cloud-based alternative? What are the costs and benefits? How soon can such a move pay itself off?

By establishing an environment based on an enterprise-ready, open-source operating system — Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® — and a hardware platform based on Intel® architecture, organisations can immediately obtain benefits by migrating select workloads to a standardized environment. More ambitious modernization efforts can yield additional benefits, but the heart of every project should be a solid, proven foundation.
Many organizations that have realized the benefits of server virtualization are ready to move to network virtualization. By combining hardware and software resources and functionality into a single, software-based administrative entity, these organizations can reap the benefits of greater data center agility
For data-driven businesses, cloud can be a boon.

The existing upgrade paths from legacy PBX and ACD suppliers make it difficult for contact center executives to contemplate the future of customer service on their own terms. If your ACD-based contact center has become a road block for adding capacity or adding channels such as social media and mobile, you might want to think about making the switch to a SIP-based contact center solution.
SIP delivers two important advantages over legacy switching:
1. SIP is based on open standards, so you can choose hardware and software that is best suited for your environment.
2. SIP’s capability extends beyond voice to new media types such as mobile, social media and video.
SIP-based contact centers provide a roadmap to sophisticated features without the complexity and expense of traditional proprietary ACDs.

Office 365 has eclipsed all other cloud applications to emerge as the most widely used enterprise cloud service by user count. It’s easy to understand why: With Office 365, organizations no longer have to pay for hardware or resources to manage software in their own data centers, and their users always have the latest versions of applications. But Office 365 comes with significant security concerns, especially as organizations store more and more sensitive and business-critical data there. One study reports that virtually every organization experiences at least one cloud-based threat each month — and the average has soared to nearly 6 incidents every week. What can organizations do to protect their Office 365 environments? Read the white paper to learn.
The growth of virtualization has fundamentally changed the data center and raised numerous questions about data security and privacy. In fact, security concerns are the largest barrier to cloud adoption. Read this e-Book and learn how to protect sensitive data and demonstrate compliance.
Virtualization is the creation of a logical rather than an actual physical version of something. such as a storage device, hardware platform, operating system, database or network resource. The usual goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving resilience, scalability and performance and lowering costs. Virtualization is part of an overall trend in enterprise IT towards autonomic computing, a scenario in which the IT environment will be able to manage itself based on an activity or set of activities. This means organizations use or pay for computing resources only as they need them.
As with most innovations in business information technology, the ultimate truth about cloud lies somewhere in between. There is little doubt that cloud-based infrastructures offer an immediate opportunity for smaller organizations to avoid the costly investment needed for a robust on-premises computing environment. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without investing in any local hardware. Large organizations with mature on-premises computing infrastructures are looking to Hadoop platforms to help them benefit from the vast array of structured and unstructured data from cloud-based sources. Organizations have feet in both cloud and on-premises worlds. In fact, one could easily argue that we already live in a “hybrid” world.
The world of IT is undergoing a digital transformation. Applications are growing fast, and so are the users consuming them. These applications are everywhere—in the datacenter, on virtual and/or microservices platforms, in the cloud, and as SaaS. More and more apps are now being moved out of datacenters to a cloud-based infrastructure.
In order for an optimized and secure delivery of these applications, IT needs specific network appliances called Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs). These ADCs come in hardware, virtual, and containerized form factors, and are sized by Network Administrators based on the current and future usage of applications. The challenge with this is that it’s hard to foresee sizing or scalability requirements for these ADCs since users are constantly increasing, and applications are consistently evolving, as well as moving out of datacenters.
Complicating matters, most ADCs are fixed-capacity network appliances that provide zero or minimum expansion capability
BlueArc’s Titan Architecture creates a revolutionary step in file servers by creating a hardware-based file system that can scale throughput, IOPS and capacity well beyond conventional software-based file servers.
