Digital transformation (DX) continues to headline business initiatives as companies look to remain competitive in the rapidly changing IT landscape. Organizations are increasingly investing in and implementing next-generation applications and architectures such as software-defined IT and hybrid IT to drive higher levels of efficiency and agility. These modern technologies and architectures, however, also require organizations to evolve their underlying infrastructure to support new capabilities and demands.
Recent strength in the server market, which continues to operate in a marketwide refresh cycle, illustrates the growing demand for new infrastructure. 1Q18 marked the server market's fifth consecutive quarter of both shipment and revenue growth and represented a fourth consecutive quarter of year-on-year ASP growth, as customers continue to replace aging server infrastructure with more powerful and efficient systems that leverage the latest platform developments from processor supp

NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate.
In this lab evaluation, NetApp commissioned Demartek to evaluate the effectiveness of Flash Pool with different types and numbers of hard disk drives using an online transaction processing (OLTP) database workload, and to evaluate the performance of Flash Pool in a clustered Data ONTAP environment during a cluster storage node failover scenario.
In the report, you’ll dis cover how Demartek test engineers documented a 283% gain in IOPS and a reduction in latency by a factor of 66x after incorporating NetApp Flash Pool technology.
A must-read for IT professionals that provides a comprehensive analysis of the API management marketplace and evaluates 22 vendors across 15 essential criteria.
APIs are the de-facto standard for building and connecting modern applications. But securely delivering, managing and analyzing APIs, data and services, both inside and outside an organization, is complex. And it’s getting even more challenging as enterprise IT environments grow dependent on combinations of public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures.
Choosing the right APIs can be critical to a platform’s success. Likewise, full lifecycle API management can be a key ingredient in running a successful API-based program. Tools like Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management help enterprises evaluate these platforms so they can find the right one to fit their strategy and planning.
Apigee is pleased to offer you a complimentary copy of the Gartner report. Access in-depth evaluations of API managemen
Hybrid cloud has emerged as the cornerstone for digital transformation, enabling developers to create unique and compelling mobile, IoT, and web applications while extending their IT investments and capabilities. Attend this webinar to learn how you can leverage your WebSphere Application Server infrastructure and investments to maximize performance, lower costs, and successfully move forward into a hybrid cloud world.
Cloud-based data and processing services present too much opportunity for organizations to ignore. How can organizations realize the obvious financial benefits of the cloud while ensuring information culled from cloud sources is secure and trustworthy?
Good hybrid information governance implies several priorities for IT and the business which are based on these foundational pillars:
- Broad agreement on what information means
- Clear agreement on how owned information assets will be maintained and monitored
- Standard practices for securing strategic information assets
- Enterprise data integration strategy
Cloud- based data presents a wealth of potential information for organizations seeking to build and maintain competitive advantage in their industries. However, as discussed in “The truth about information governance and the cloud,” most organizations will be challenged to reconcile their legacy on- premises data with new third- party cloud- based data. It is within these “hybrid” environments that people will look for insights to make critical decisions.

IBM's recently released DB2 version 11.1 for Linux, Unix and Windows (LUW) is a hybrid database that IBM says can handle transactional and analytic workloads thanks to its BLU Acceleration technology, which features an in-memory column store for analytical workloads that can scale across a massively parallel cluster.
Here are the 6 reasons to change your database:
Lower total cost of ownership
Increased scalability and availability
Flexibility for hybrid environments
A platform for rapid reporting and analytics
Support for new and emerging applications

For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality
for development, deployment and delivery of applications
and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are
going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud,
but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide
variety of requirements.
This paper outlines what readers should consider when
making a strategic commitment to a database platform that
will act as a bridge from legacy environments to the cloud.
Welcome to the era of the digital enterprise, where digital is
your journey and cognitive is your destination. As business
leaders, you are under growing pressure to use information
to its fullest potential, delivering new customer experiences
as fuel for business growth. The digital economy is changing
the way we gather information, gain insights, reinvent our
businesses and innovate both quickly and iteratively
A hybrid cloud environment, combining traditional IT systems
and public cloud, enables you to extend business processes
beyond the walls of your organization. For example, many
organizations use public cloud as a collaborative development
environment to create innovative applications that can then be
ported to an on-premises or hybrid production environment.
For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
To accelerate innovation, improve the IT delivery economic model and reduce risk, organizations need to combine data and experience in a cognitive model that yields deeper and more meaningful insights for smarter decisionmaking. Whether the user needs a data set maintained in house for customer analytics or access to a cloud-based data store for assessing marketing program results — or any other business need — a high-performance, highly available, mixed-load database platform is required.

Transitioning from traditional IT to cloud IT is not an all-at-once, big bang effort. Rather, the cloud adoption process should be an agile, incremental process. And the first part of that process is understanding the different cloud models. Contrary to popular belief, cloud isn’t necessarily only public cloud, multi-tenant, and hosted in a vendor’s data center. It can also be private cloud, single-tenant, and/or hosted in a corporate data center. Often the best solution is a hybrid combination of these options. This paper will show you the advantages of hybrid cloud applications and explore the considerations you should make to find an optimal solution for your organization.

Two-thirds of organizations that blend traditional and cloud infrastructures are already gaining advantage from their hybrid environments. However, leaders among them use hybrid cloud to power their digital transformation, going beyond cost reduction and productivity gains.
Most organizations want to leverage the cloud, but also recognize that migrating all their applications at once is not always practical. They are seeking ways to utilize cloud-based services while maintaining certain applications on-premise. For organizations utilizing this hybrid architecture, one of their major challenges is providing users with the flexibility to seamlessly move around the environment while still maintaining appropriate security levels—or more specifically, ensuring consistent control and security policy between on-premise applications and cloud services.
