This industry analyst report describes important considerations when planning a Hadoop implementation. While some companies have the skill and the will to build, operate, and maintain large Hadoop clusters of their own, a growing number are choosing not to make investments in-house and are looking to the cloud. In this report Gigaom Research explores:
• How large Hadoop clusters behave differently from the small groups of machines developers typically use to learn
• What models are available for running a Hadoop cluster, and which is best for specific situations
• What are the costs and benefits of using Hadoop-as-a-Service
With Hadoop delivered as a Service from trusted providers such as Altiscale, companies are able to focus less on managing and optimizing Hadoop and more on the business insights Hadoop can deliver.
Today’s consumers expect instant access to communications services whether they’re in the office, at home, or on the road. With data speeds increasing and international roaming costs decreasing, data usage is rapidly growing. Telecommunications Service Providers (TSPs) are under pressure to deliver more services to more people and approach 100% uptime all while lowering prices to consumers.
Traditional relational databases can’t meet the requirements for massive scalability, availability, and fault tolerance that the rapid growth in data usage and rise of big data demands. Read this solution brief to learn how Riak excels at these. Riak is a distributed NoSQL database optimized for big data. Riak meets many of the challenges you may be facing with your own service operations systems.

Commoditization is a serious threat to the telecommunications industry. Most CSPs offer similar services at rates designed to win what has become a price war. As a result, many face decreasing margins and difficulty sustaining differentiation based on prices or products alone. On top of commoditization, CSPs also face competition from OTT providers and an increasingly knowledgeable and demanding customer base. With access to growing amounts of data from an ever-increasing number of sources and devices, today’s empowered, savvy consumers know what they want and expect to get it.
Research shows that today’s business goals are centered on reducing costs, strengthening customer relationships and improving financial management. The biggest challenges to achieving these goals are lack of skills and investment funds, and inadequate linkages between the IT environment and how business processes are managed. Read this analyst report to see why enterprises are turning to managed services to help overcome these challenges so that they can optimize the value of their IT investments and achieve their corporate objectives.

Cloud adoption is growing, but relatively few organizations
have advanced cloud strategies.
Achieving greater levels of cloud adoption allows organizations
to materially improve strategic allocation of IT budgets, lower IT costs, reduce time to provision IT services, increase revenue, and improve ability to meet SLAs. Private cloud adoption is greater than public cloud.
Additionally, private cloud/OpenStack adopters are more likely to expect better business outcomes IDC sees web-scale public cloud making way for enterprise-class “provider-based cloud”.

At Viavi Solutions® we’ve had the benefit of observing a number of hybrid cloud deployments up close. All sectors of IT users—from small to large enterprises, governmental groups, and even cloud service providers (CSPs) who themselves have begun to offer managed cloud services from third-party platforms—touch the hybrid cloud environment. CIOs, especially, face new challenges in deploying or expanding their enterprise presence in the cloud. This white paper examines four critical areas—migration, security, costs, and visibility—where CIOs can make major differences in the successful execution of hybrid cloud strategies. We’ve listed 20 fundamental questions CIOs can discuss with both their internal deployment groups and their external CSP/system integrator in preparation for a migration to or an expansion of hybrid cloud services.
In this infograph learn the benefits regarding cloud services and whether it is more cost effective to build an IT Infrastructure for cloud on-site or to partner with a cloud provider that offers a fully managed solution.
Cisco offers an approach to network security that protects against new and emerging threats while enhancing network visibility and control.
Cisco’s proven email and web security products protect 50 percent of Fortune 1000 companies, more than 20 percent of the world's largest enterprises, and eight of the 10 largest Internet service providers.
Service providers around the world share concerns about running out of bandwidth. Business challenges surrounding continued bandwidth growth, linked to video, mobility, and cloud applications, are significant. Service providers also report declining revenue from a cost-per-bit perspective, so not only does the network need to grow, it also needs to grow more cost effectively. The Cisco Virtual Networking Index™ (Cisco VNI™) predicts that over 50 billion devices will be connected over these networks by 2020. The network effects of the Internet of Things, LTE mobility, and mobile video are just beginning to be understood. In a world where mobile device network additions are growing four times faster than the population, and machine-to-machine (M2M) device network additions are growing five times faster than mobile device additions, this problem is clearly becoming highly important and requires a good solution.
Today’s branch office requires the same level of rich application services as the company headquarters to ensure business innovation and employee productivity.

To respond to rapid business environmental changes, enterprises are now adopting a more agile and services-oriented model for centralized IT, often characterized as “private cloud.” Public cloud service providers have become adept at adding new customers, new applications, and more compute-intensive workloads with minimal delay. While traditional enterprise IT may not be able to fully emulate this model, they can use virtualization – both at the levels of servers and storage – to come as close to the cloud as possible. Read this Evaluator Group paper to learn how HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage platforms can be foundational to developing IT agility.
