Forrester Report: Your-Three Step Guide to Planning Cloud Migration

Published By: Skytap     Published Date: Aug 23, 2017
Cloud migration has exploded in popularity since General Electric’s (GE’s) flashy keynote at Amazon Web Service’s (AWS’s) re:Invent in September 2015. GE claims to be migrating all workloads not containing secret information. Enterprises are revisiting public cloud and exploring whether existing or systems-of-record applications have a place in that world. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals on this path should avoid a one-size-fits-all approach to outsourcing and migration plans, opting instead for an app-by-app assessment.

IT leaders who want to see their organizations reap AFAs’ benefits—performance improvement, productivity gains, and cost savings, among others—should actively define their AFA strategies and oversee storage-related decision making, thus treating storage like the newly strategic asset it has become.

Modern Monitoring 1: Actionable Guidance for IT Operations and DevOps Practitioners

Published By: CA Technologies EMEA     Published Date: Sep 11, 2018
Welcome to the very first edition of Modern Monitoring, a collection of articles and insights designed to help IT operations and DevOps professionals deliver more resilient, supportable and high-performance IT services. It’s perhaps a sign of the times that monitoring as a discipline is receiving much more attention within the biz tech community. And deservedly so. The new distributed application architectures being built, together with the dizzying pace of software delivery, demand new approaches in what’s traditionally been perceived as a “keeping the lights on” IT practice. Of course, there’s no better way to consider monitoring than to draw parallels with other practices in related fields. It’s why we’ve included a couple of pieces with a distinct aeronautical flavor that discuss importance of instrumentation and contextual awareness.

Strategically Locate Your Next Data Center

Published By: Equinix     Published Date: Oct 20, 2015
In real estate, the most important factor is location, location, location! Your services are not quite as sensitive to the physical position of your technology, but location certainly can be a pivotal factor in optimizing your service design and service delivery. Ideally, location shouldn’t matter; however, it does have an e?ect on customer experience. When technology services were simpler, location was largely irrelevant, but now the complexity of new services demands a strategy more in line with your BT agenda than your former IT agenda. The e?ects of regulatory, cost, risk, and performance factors will vary based on the physical location of your technology resources. Colocation providers, cloud service providers, and even traditional hosting services o?er plenty of evolving options to help infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals balance these factors to optimize service design and delivery.
