All-flash storage is on a strong growth trajectory, but the industry is not swooning naively over the blazing fast I/O speeds. Most IT managers are talking a mature, step-by-step approach to all-flash adoption. Falling per-gigabyte prices are making the technology more commonplace. Solid state drives are no longer just for specialized, high-performing tasks. Before they leap, however, storage professionals want to understand the full business picture as they formulate a winning strategy for putting all-flash storage to use for more workloads.
This paper offers insights for business success with all-flash storage based on IT Central Station reviews. Real users weigh in on what it takes to get the most out of the technology. It covers such aspects of flash storage as the need for simplicity and the importance of flexibility. The paper also looks at how to build a business case for all-flash and think through the implications of issues such as integration with existing infrastructure.
Supply chain managers are increasingly leveraging location intelligence and location data to raise visibility throughout their whole logistics process and to optimize their delivery routes. Leveraging this data requires an ever-more-robust technology stack.
As supply chain technology stacks become more complex, diverse and defined by legacy system integrations, Application Program Interfaces (APIs) are becoming essential to making stacks scale, allowing supply chain managers to better meet the demands of the new generation of consumers.
Innovative location APIs provide supply chain stacks and applications with:
Real-time data implementation
Introducing new technology into an organization can sometimes be daunting. As one of the world’s leading location platforms, HERE shares insights and tips to streamline the supply chain technology integration across the whole organization.
Even after decades of industry and technology advancements, there still is no universal, integrated storage solution that can reduce risk, enable profitability, eliminate complexity and seamlessly integrate into the way businesses operate and manage data at scale? To reach these goals, there are capabilities that are required to achieve the optimum results at the lowest cost. These capabilities include availability, reliability, performance, density, manageability and application ecosystem integration? This paper outlines a better way to think about storing data at scale—solving these problems not only today, but well into the future?
Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.

Technology has become the heart and soul of every business. The hardware boundaries of IT have exploded beyond data centers, with mobile devices in the hands of both employees and customers alike. Application options have blossomed, from traditional to open source to software-as-a-service. Business has
become global, bringing with it a demand for round-the-clock agility. Employees expect that the applications they use at work should be as easy to use as the Web apps they use at home. Integration remains difficult, because it’s sometimes impossible to know what will happen when someone tries to pluck one strand out of the pile. IT workload and system complexity will only get more challenging, bringing the need for disintermediation
through service automation.

Application programming interfaces, or APIs, are the way software talks to other software—so
by definition, they’re a technology that connects systems. Many enterprise leaders think of them
primarily in these terms. For example, 57 percent of respondents to Google’s enterprise digital
maturity assessment tool, Apigee Compass, characterize APIs as systems integration technology.
The ability to integrate systems and share data across the enterprise is a common datacenter need. The needs of an integration bus, the technology used for middleware-based integration, can varyin complexity, data volume, and required performance. Both Red Hat and MuleSoft offer multiple products that can help customers develop and deploy middleware integration solutions.

APIs are an emerging technology for integrating applications using web technology. This approach is exploding in popularity because it builds on well-understood techniques and leverages some existing infrastructure.
But it is a mistake to think we can secure APIs using the same methods and technology that we used to secure the conventional, browser-centric web. While it is true that APIs share many of the same threats that plague the web, they are fundamentally differently and have an entirely unique risk profile that you need to manage.
This eBooklet provides an overview of these new risks, and offers five simple solutions to counter the common threats. By adopting a secure API architecture from the beginning, organizations can pursue an API strategy more safely and securely — and reap the benefits of agile integration promised by this exciting new technology.
