Are Your Capacity Management Processes Fit for the Cloud Era?

Published By: VMTurbo     Published Date: Mar 25, 2015
An Intelligent Roadmap for Capacity Planning Many organizations apply overly simplistic principles to determine requirements for compute capacity in their virtualized data centers. These principles are based on a resource allocation model which takes the total amount of memory and CPU allocated to all virtual machines in a compute cluster, and assumes a defined level of over provisioning (e.g. 2:1, 4:1, 8:1, 12:1) in order to calculate the requirement for physical resources. Often managed in spreadsheets or simple databases, and augmented by simple alert-based monitoring tools, the resource allocation model does not account for actual resource consumption driven by each application workload running in the operational environment, and inherently corrodes the level of efficiency that can be driven from the underlying infrastructure.

The Forrester Wave Private Cloud Solutions, Q4 2013

Published By: HP     Published Date: Oct 01, 2014
Enterprises look to private clouds for more than just virtual infrastructure provisioning. Private cloud vendors have started to bundle additional capabilities into their solutions, including pervasive VM management capabilities, design tools for complex application templates, and service catalogs. Over the next 12 months, more than half of enterprises will prioritize building internal private clouds. Today, the most common approach is through the purchase of commercial software to layer atop existing infrastructure resources. Regardless of the approach you choose, there’s no shortage of tools to support your efforts.

Optimized Security for the Modern Data Center

Published By: CDW-Trend Micro     Published Date: Mar 26, 2015
Virtualization and cloud computing can help your organization achieve significant savings in data center hardware costs, operational expenditures, and energy demands— while achieving improvements in quality of service and business agility. However, as data centers continue to transition from physical to virtual and now increasingly, cloud environments, traditional security can slow down provisioning, become difficult to manage, and cause performance lag. As you scale your virtual environment and adopt software defined networking, evolving your approach to security can reduce time, effort, and impact on CPU, network, and storage. Read this white paper to learn more about virtualization and cloud computing.

Enabling the Path to Private Cloud: Self-Service

Published By: CDW - NetApp     Published Date: Apr 07, 2016
Self-service is an advanced element of private cloud environments that improves management efficiency and business agility, as well as lowering operating expenses. A self-service environment streamlines the interaction between users and the IT department. It empowers internal consumers of IT services to request and receive appropriately configured resources on demand with minimal IT intervention. NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, the NetApp Management SDK with open APIs, and key ecosystem partnerships enable enterprises to easily integrate their orchestration solutions and custom management tools with the NetApp storage service catalog for automated storage provisioning and protection. Customers can thereby create a self-service, web-based portal that efficiently delivers IT as a service to virtualization administrators, application administrators, and users, while enabling IT staff to focus on higher value activities.

Top 5 Reasons to Automate Identity Lifecycle

Published By: OKTA     Published Date: Mar 30, 2018
"Cloud-first, mobile-first organizations are seeing huge benefits from taking a more distributed approach to IT and user access management. Business units are given more freedom to evaluate and select SaaS applications that will enable efficiency and growth. Users are given more freedom to use the devices that make them the most productive. When this trend started, most IT organizations were able to implement some basic, manual processes to administer and govern IT in this best-of-breed distributed environment. However, as the number of touchpoints increases, IT needs to automate to keep pace and stay secure. This white paper goes into more detail on the top 5 reasons to automate identity lifecycle and identity administration with comprehensive user provisioning and build a solid foundation for future cloud-first, mobile-first IT."

Don't be Duped by Dedupe

Published By: Arcserve     Published Date: May 29, 2015
Today, data volumes are growing exponentially and organizations of every size are struggling to manage what has become a very expensive and complex problem. It causes real issues such as: • Overprovisioning their backup infrastructure to anticipate rapid future growth. • Legacy systems can’t cope and backups take too long or are incomplete. • Companies miss recovery point objectives and recovery time targets. • Backups overload infrastructure and network bandwidth. • Not embracing new technologies, such as cloud backup, because there is too much data to transfer over wide area networks.
