"How can you make sure that your private cloud is agile, responsive, and efficient? NetApp offers private cloud technology that aligns with the following recommendations from Enterprise Strategy Group:
* Optimize storage to fully realize the benefits of server virtualization and private cloud
* Treat storage efficiency as a strategic opportunity to hone and improve the overall cloud environment
* Use techniques such as deduplication and compression to expand the available capacity of a private cloud"
The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport. The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases.
As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions.
While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial, it
The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN) must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and overall corporate productivity.
As connectivity options continue to emerge, end users are no longer tethered to the office or to the localized applications and services that were trademarks of a primary or branc
Is your IT organization taking the proper steps toward successful cloud adoption?
Legacy networking technology is hampering IT agility. Cloud providers have initiated an agility revolution but secure inter- and intra-cloud network connectivity are still very challenging. Easier alternatives are either expensive, worsen application performance and/or hamper network efficiency. Riverbed’s unique SD-WAN solution helps unlock agility across the complete enterprise network allowing for easier deployment and management of cloud-centric networks. This cloud adoption Use Case outlines challenges and solutions for cloud-centric enterprise architectures including:
· Unlocking cloud agility through simple workflows in the WAN such as single-click secure connectivity to cloud and branch networks
· The importance of bandwidth reduction and application acceleration to ensure cloud adoption
· Distinguishing between application and network problems through enhanced visibility
Cloud computing allows companies to use IT resources as a service, taking advantage of shared applications, processing and storage managed within the cloud - either inside a private cloud at an internal data center, or in an external cloud at a service provider. Greater robustness of the virtualized servers supporting this new IT model will ensure a resilient cloud infrastructure capable of delivering "on-demand" access to users.

Ephemeral disk storage, also known as local disk devices is an important component in using the IBM® SmartCloud. This article details the layout of the virtual disk drives available to the Linux® and WindowsT operating systems for each choice of instance size in the IBM Cloud.
The investment that an organization makes in their virtualization or cloud initiative is significant, but so is the ROI (Return On Investment) that these projects deliver. The challenge is that the cost of providing the storage infrastructure to these initiatives can be expensive and can quickly eat into any ROI that was gained by the virtualization and/or cloud project.
