In this White Paper IDC sees the use of static x86 server configurations is quickly becoming an outdated concept with the introduction of modern solutions based on blade architectures, which can offer both intelligent configuration and management and the ability to perform physical-to-virtual migration to promote uptime and efficient resource usage. When combined with the quickly maturing x86 hypervisor technologies available from a variety of solution providers, the synergy of blade architectures and virtualization offers customers the ability to dramatically increase utilization of their server investments, boost uptime, provide a more resilient and available infrastructure, and roll out new infrastructure and services more quickly.

If you are concerned about the future of your proprietary RISC platform, you need to consider a migration from proprietary to open, from UNIX to Linux while you still have options. You do not want to be forced to pour good money after bad upgrading an obsolete architecture in order simply to stay afloat. See how servers using Intel Xeon processors can offer better performance for a lower price while saving energy.
The new disk-based backup products geared to small to medium enterprise (SME) businesses are being enhanced with enterprise-class product features at prices that are getting less and less expensive, making it feasible to back up from disk to removable disks and do away with tape backups altogether. Read this white paper for more information.
In this white paper Quest's data protection experts offer five tips for effective backup and recovery to help you avoid the challenges that might keep you from fully protecting your virtual assets and infrastructure.
At Viavi Solutions® we’ve had the benefit of observing a number of hybrid cloud deployments up close. All sectors of IT users from small to large enterprises, governmental groups, and even cloud service providers (CSPs) who themselves have begun to offer managed cloud services from third-party platforms—touch the hybrid cloud environment. CIOs, especially, face new challenges in deploying or expanding their enterprise presence in the cloud.
This white paper examines four critical areas—migration, security, costs, and visibility—where CIOs can make major differences in the successful execution of hybrid cloud strategies. We’ve listed 20 fundamental questions CIOs can discuss with both their internal deployment groups and their external CSP/system integrator in preparation for a migration to or an expansion of hybrid cloud services.
802.11ac is well on its way to becoming the standard for next-generation Wi-Fi.

A key benefit of an SD-WAN is that you need not replace any part of your existing network. SDWAN simplifies your overall network architecture and management, and can be phased in as a
parallel, overlay network. Sites are migrated in phases based on their type, location or any other
sequence of priority you may have. This paper covers the migration design thought process,
routing considerations, and a step-by-step migration path to insert your traditional WAN sites into
an SD-WAN architecture.
Over the last couple of years SD-WAN technology has matured into a mainstream solution. Yet, the
most appropriate migration path is not always clear. While there are many considerations to
balance during a migration, the enduring benefit of an SD-WAN architecture is simplification:
branch design, data center design, routing, edge platform choices, security choices, management.
To ensure an understanding of the fundamental concepts, let’s quickly discuss the architecture and components of SD-WAN,
and then move on to cover the best practices of various aspects of an SD-WAN migration
