Comprehensive Data Protection For Physical, Virtual And Cloud Infrastructures

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 20, 2017
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.

Internet Failover with Bandwidth Aggregation for Disaster Recovery

Published By: Astrocom     Published Date: Dec 13, 2007
Enterprises with mission critical applications are exploring the benefits of disaster recovery sites for their data centers to ensure business continuity. Special network technology is needed to ensure that site failover and failback occurs reliably and predictably. An ideal solution should provide reliable network connections, manage inbound and outbound traffic over multiple WAN links, failover to a secondary data center if all links at the primary data center are down, and eliminate deployment barriers and costs of multi-homing with BGP (Border Gateway Protocol).

Leveraging the network for your virtualization and cloud intiatives

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Oct 10, 2013
A though leadership white paper discusses how virtualization, cloud computing, and the proliferation of smart devices are helping companies meet their goals and be more effective with their IT investments but are placing increased demands on the datacenter network. Organizations can no longer afford to treat the datacenter network as an afterthought, and it is not sufficient to simply throw more ports or bandwidth at the problem. IBM offers a portfolio of datacenter network planning, integration, and management services designed to maximize customers' DCN success. By working with customers to plan and implement the appropriate network design at the beginning of an IT project, IBM can help customers meet their business requirements, minimize operating costs, and build in flexibility for the future.

IDC: Server Transition Alternatives: A Business Value View Focusing on Operating Costs, Oct 2012

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jan 02, 2014
Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time – but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server "footprint" size and overall electrical requirements, resulted in significant reductions in ongoing costs, or opex, per 100 end users supported.
