Software might run the world, but software still runs on hardware. It’s a misperception that hardware has little value anymore. Every application, every workload, every data set runs on physical servers.
Read “Hardware Does Matter: Global Server Brands are Perceived as Superior for Driving Digital Business,” a Frost & Sullivan report of 500 IT decision makers, on the value of global server brands vs. commodity servers.
Look beyond commodity status to discover:
• Key server purchase criteria
• How top brands directly compare
• How to choose based on workload

As organizations continue to look for ways to increase business agility, a need for a modern database architecture that can rapidly respond to the needs of business is more apparent than ever. While an RDBMS still serves as a lifeline for many organizations, the adoption of technologies such as NoSQL and Hadoop are enabling organizations to best address database performance and scalability requirements while also satisfying the goals of embracing hybrid cloud and becoming more data-driven. And with organizations relying so heavily on these new technologies to yield rapid insights that positively impact the business, the need to evaluate how those new technologies are managed and protected is essential. Hadoop and NoSQL workloads are now pervasive in production environments and require “production-class” data protection, yet few data protection solutions offer such capabilities today.

In a context of mass data fragmentation on-premises and in the cloud, organizations now struggle with the compounded complexities brought about by modern workloads such as containers, NoSQL/NewSQL databases, and SaaS applications. These new workloads are turning traditional backup and recovery approaches on their head—in particular, in Microsoft Office 365 deployments for which new backup, recovery, and data management schemas must be deployed.

IT organizations everywhere are undergoing significant transformation to keep pace with the needs of their businesses. They’re tasked with
consolidating data centers and migrating both workloads and data to the cloud. The transition has been easier for some than others.
As hybrid architectures increasingly become the norm, how are enterprises gaining complete visibility, simplifying management, and making use
of all of their data—both on-premises and in the cloud?
Five enterprises explain how they’ve replaced multiple products that created legacy data silos with Cohesity – a single, hyperconverged softwaredefined
platform with native Microsoft Azure integration for simplified secondary data and applications. For them, Cohesity and Azure together
boost IT agility while lowering costs, solving critical secondary data challenges from long-term retention, storage tiering, test/dev, disaster

ASG's Business Service PortfolioT (BSPT) Virtualization Management provides comprehensive oversight, inspections, discoveries, warnings, diagnostics, and reporting for the critical technology and administrative disciplines involved in virtual workload management. This is all done in parallel with physical systems management.
Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
There are success stories of businesses that have implemented Business Service Management (BSM) with well-documented, bottom-line results. What do these organizations know that their discouraged counterparts don't?

This book helps you understand both sides of the hybrid IT equation and how HPE can help your organization transform its IT
operations and save time and money in the process. I delve into
the worlds of security, economics, and operations to show you
new ways to support your business workloads.
Discover HPE OneSphere, a hybrid cloud management solution that enables IT to deliver private infrastructure with public-cloud ease. With the proliferation of self-service, on-demand infrastructure, enterprise developers have come to expect infrastructure as a service. However, the constraints of existing infrastructure and tools make this mean heavier workloads for IT teams.
"Customers in the midst of digital transformation look first to the public cloud when
seeking dramatic simplification, cost, utilization and flexibility advantages for their new
application workloads. But using public cloud comes with its own challenges. It’s often
not as easy as advertised. And it’s not always possible or practical for enterprises to retire
their traditional, on-premises enterprise system still running the company’s most mission-critical workloads. Hybrid IT – a balanced combination of traditional infrastructure,
private cloud and public cloud – is the answer. "

Hyperconvergence is a hot topic right now. And for good reason. Organisations have longed for a way to reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to deploy new business-facing IT services. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) delivers the speed, simplicity and agility needed in today’s digital economy. But not all HCI solutions are created equal. And HCI is not the answer for every application or workload. In the following, we explore what makes HCI different from traditional IT infrastructure and how your business can benefit from the new capabilities it brings.
This book helps you understand both sides of the hybrid IT equation and how HPE can help your organization transform its IT operations and save time and money in the process. I delve into the worlds of security, economics, and operations to show you new ways to support your business workloads.
In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
Most IT professionals today recognize that enterprise IT will be hybrid in the future. To provide the optimal foundation for each workload being deployed, the hybrid IT environment will include cloud-based infrastructures—from multiple providers—co-existing alongside infrastructure within the enterprise data center or a hosted environment.
But not all hyperconverged solutions yield the same results. The right hyperconverged infrastructure can meet your IT needs both today and well into the future. In this paper, we will talk about where your data center needs to be in the next five years to meet changing business demands, and how the roles of IT professionals will evolve. We will also review “hyperconvergence” models, and how they can best meet your IT needs both today and in the future, as well as the benefits you can expect along the way. Finally, we discuss what to look for in the right hyperconverged provider, who will position your IT department for success.
