In August 2008, Computerworld invited IT and business leaders to participate in a core network services survey, that included specific questions about their DNS infrastructures and the costs of IP address management. The survey was fielded via targeted broadcasts to Computerworld customers, as well as through an invitation on Computerworld.com. The survey was commissioned by Infoblox, but the data was gathered and tabulated independently by Computerworld Research. The following report represents top-line results of that survey.
To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.
When Alcatel bought out Lucent at the end of 2006, the two companies had already begun planning data center consolidations of their own, but the merger changed all that. As it turns out, the merged company created a plan to consolidate 25 data centers and 125 server rooms down to six data centers and just a few server rooms. This change has presented challenges, especially in terms of arranging downtime and dealing with employees' attachment to their servers and applications, but the company is on pace to meet it’s goal of reducing IT operational cost by 25% over three years.
VMware Virtual Infrastructure and CA Recovery Management (CA ARCserve Backup and CA Xosoft products) team up to deliver higher availability and risk-resistance for business-critical information and applications, while lowering management and operational costs and complexity.
"Although many IT professionals believe that using self-signed SSL certificates can help their organizations lower security costs, the real numbers tell a different story. From data center infrastructure and physical security, to the hardware and software required, to the personnel needed to manage the certificate lifecycle, the true costs of self-signed SSL security can become very expensive, very fast.
This paper explores the true total cost of ownership (TCO) for self-signed SSL certificates, including a side-by-side comparison of a self-signed architecture versus working with a third-party SSL vendor. Before a company decides to use self-signed certificates, these issues deserve careful consideration."
Organizations worldwide are using virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to run virtual desktops in the
datacenter and deliver these to employees as a managed service. End users gain a familiar, personalized
environment they can access anywhere from any device, while administrators gain control and security. With
VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), IT professionals can implement a VDI infrastructure to help
drive down operational costs, enhance security, and support a mobile workforce.
The workforce is going mobile. According to Forrester, more than half of employees carry at least three
devices for work. And many are bringing their own smartphones, tablets, and other devices to work, a
phenomenon that’s grown so popular it now has its own acronym—Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
So it comes as no surprise that, according a survey by SpiceWorks, 60% of small and medium businesses are
considering using a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as part of their BYOD strategy. Many of these organizations
are relying on VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), because it enables organizations to implement a
VDI infrastructure that reduces operational costs, enhances security and supports a mobile workforce.

IT organizations are under intense pressure to improve service levels and contain expenses in today’s challenging economic climate. Forward-looking organizations are upgrading IT infrastructure and implementing virtualization and cloud computing solutions to improve business agility and drive down costs. Many enterprises are adopting a dual platform approach, retaining Microsoft Windows for office productivity and collaboration applications, and deploying Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® for infrastructure and datacenter modernization initiatives. By adopting standards-based Red Hat Enterprise Linux, businesses can enjoy high performance, reliability, and security, with a lower overall TCO.

An Italian bank with an appetite for innovation and infrastructure standardization, automated, and cloud-ready Cohesity Data platform. In two years, the organization has simplified its secondary stage environment with a single data management pane to improve backup SLAs, cut costs, and deliver up-to-date and relevant data for test & dev and analytics teams at scale to test fast, fail fast, and innovate fast.
The fundamental reasons to move to a cloud computing environment are the business agility, high efficiency, scalability, and availability that the pooling of elastic computing resources provides, along with significant cost reductions and support for business growth. Oracle has invested deeply in developing a broad collection of cloud services with solutions at every layer of the technology stack.Customers who deploy these solutions in Oracle Cloud derive huge benefit from the fact that they have access to Oracle’s entire technology stack in the cloud, just as they did in on-premises deployments.
This white paper explains how you, as an existing Oracle E-Business Suite customer, can take
advantage of cloud computing right now, by exploiting the capabilities of Oracle’s Infrastructure as a
Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings to support growth, enhance business agility,
