Old-guard database providers are expensive, proprietary, have high lock-in costs, and impose restrictive licensing terms. The challenge to date has been to achieve the same performance and availability of commercial-grade databases on open source databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MariaDB.
Examine key considerations that go into any database migration decision and specific use cases—in Financial Services and Healthcare Analytics implementations—where Datavail carefully managed database migrations from traditional database providers to the cloud—and in particular Amazon Aurora.

Moving major, business-supporting applications to the cloud can be a challenge for a variety of reasons. You may have concerns about the physical migration of data, as data loss or business disruption stemming from a migration issue would be a disaster for the business. Security is another typical concern, as a data breach of your most sensitive applications—like SAP or Oracle— could prove highly damaging. Akin to security, data sovereignty is an issue for many businesses. Stringent compliance laws in some jurisdictions are dictating data “residency”; and in the cloud, it is not always clear where the data is housed.
Among managed cloud service users, 68% state that using such services helps them to better manage resource allocation and make SAP and Oracle costs more predictable.
In this paper, we will look at common concerns over deploying and optimally managing business-critical, legacy applications in the cloud. We consider the benefits of managed cloud services, and how your

The hybrid cloud has been heralded as a promising IT operational model enabling enterprises to maintain security and control over the infrastructure on which their applications run. At the same time, it promises to maximize ROI from their local data center and leverage public cloud infrastructure for an occasional demand spike.
Public clouds are relatively new in the IT landscape and their adoption has accelerated over the last few years with multiple vendors now offering solutions as well as improved on-ramps for workloads to ease the adoption of a hybrid cloud model.
With these advances and the ability to choose between a local data center and multiple public cloud offerings, one fundamental question must still be answered: What, when and where to run workloads to assure performance while maximizing efficiency?
In this whitepaper, we explore some of the players in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and hybrid cloud, the challenges surrounding effective implementation, and how to iden

Although no enterprise will be forced to migrate its core enterprise applications to the cloud, enterprises are on the cusp of facing the fork in the road that leads to the cloud. The release of a jointly developed cloud-migration test program from SAP and AWS (Amazon Web Services) will help enterprises address the uncertainty that they will face in estimating the actual time and cost of a migration of HANA to the AWS cloud.

The migration from a traditional enterprise IT infrastructure architecture with separate servers,
separate traditional SAN, and separate hyperscale public cloud to an integrated hyperconverged
architecture including Server SAN and an integrated hybrid cloud is a profound change. Wikibon
explores the premise that the migration is justified, and the optimum hybrid cloud strategy is to
use the same architecture and software for both the on-premises True Private Cloud and the

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.
Directed at cloud architecting concerns, this paper covers streamlining complexity at scale, knowing infrastructure state, and using easily repeatable patterns that bolster security, compliance, and disaster recovery. Get this white paper now.
De nombreuses organisations et entreprises dans le monde entier disposent de pièces vacantes, autrefois remplies de câbles, de boîtes noires et de voyants clignotants. Ces locaux abritent une armoire téléphonique poussiéreuse, ne contenant qu'un seul terminal, ou parfois un baby-foot que les employés du service informatique utilisent pour décompresser. Le cloud, et notamment les communications via le cloud, sont à l'origine de cette transformation qui a bouleversé le paysage informatique. Certains professionnels de l'informatique ont accueilli ce changement à bras ouverts. D'autres préparent la migration progressive de leurs services vers le cloud. D'autres enfin conservent leur solution sur site, par choix ou par nécessité.
