How to Lower Email Costs While Increasing Reliability

Published By: Concentric     Published Date: Mar 27, 2009
Email has become something of a critical utility, much like the electricity that powers our offices: it must be available 24 hours a day, it must provide reliable performance, and its cost must be reasonable. However, unlike electrical systems (at least from the user’s perspective), email systems require significant amounts of labor to manage well. Email systems must periodically be upgraded. New hardware must be introduced as organizations migrate to new systems. Security must be maintained and upgraded to protect the system from intrusions. Additional hardware must be deployed to protect against outages that could seriously harm user productivity. Plus, unexpected events, such as spam storms or natural disasters can drive up costs substantially in ways that were not anticipated.

Competitive System Resource Impact Testing

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Aug 22, 2018
Even if one minute a day is lost to productivity drains because of PC horsepower allocation to security scans and remediation, the cost over a year across a medium-sized enterprise adds up quickly. A 10,000 employee operation would face over $10M in direct productivity losses alone. As an early trigger for expensive PC hardware refresh is an onslaught of help desk calls, many companies find that they can actually extend the hardware refresh cycle out another 12–24 months simply by employing a security solution that does not tax the PC as heavily. The indirect costs associated with brand reputation and opportunity losses add untold thousands of dollars per year as well. Further, some institutions under green initiatives monitor power consumption related to security measures favor solutions that use less energy. As such, forward-thinking enterprises are looking beyond the software license fees when evaluating security software alternatives.

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.

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.

Email Is A Key Workload For Storage Strategy

Published By: HP     Published Date: May 14, 2014
Email has been a mission-critical application for years and at the heart of organizations' communications and business practices. From an architecture perspective, email has frequently been walled off, sitting on separate servers and using separate back-end storage systems. With advances in server hardware and the rise of virtualization, this appears to be changing. Read this Forrester Consulting paper to learn the key considerations for what will work best within your email environment to improve storage management and/or lower storage costs in your firm.

Hardware Matters for Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Published By: Dell EMC     Published Date: Dec 01, 2017
A common misconception about hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is that because data services are software-defined, the hardware doesn’t matter. It’s easy to see why—the software driving HCI solutions such as the Dell EMC XC Series (in this case, Nutanix software) is exceptional. It efficiently manages data and communications across a cluster of nodes and storage tiers, keeping the cluster and virtual machines (VMs) up and running, delivering optimal performance and availability. Software-defined infrastructure is changing the way data services are delivered, making companies more efficient and agile, and reducing costs. Download the study to learn more about the latest trends. Intel Inside®. New Possibilities Outside.

Securing Traditional and Cloud-Based Data Centers with Next-Generation Firewalls

Published By: Palo Alto Networks     Published Date: Sep 30, 2016
Virtualization is helping organizations like yours utilize data center hardware infrastructure more effectively, leading to a reduction in costs and improvements in operational efficiencies. In many cases, virtualization initiatives begin internally, with your own hardware and networking infrastructure augmented by tools like VMware® or Linux® KVM and OpenStack® to help manage your virtualized environment. Often referred to as private cloud, these projects are fueling significant expansion into what can be referred to as the public cloud.

Carbonite Move

Published By: Carbonite     Published Date: Aug 02, 2017
The risk and downtime of server migration have locked many IT teams into platforms that are no longer ideal. Migrations are often delayed or avoided—whether it’s moving data to the cloud or back on premises, or upgrading the hardware of the database software. This results in lost opportunities, unnecessary costs, and a lack of agility that today’s IT teams can no longer afford. Carbonite Move Powered by DoubleTake quickly and easily migrates physical, virtual, and cloud workloads over any distance with minimal risk and near-zero downtime. Using efficient real-time, byte-level replication technology, Carbonite Move creates a replica of the data, application, database, or entire server being migrated and keeps it in sync with the production system. The migrated data can be validated without disrupting business operations, and downtime is limited to the seconds or minutes required for cutover to the new server.
