Enterprise customers can take advantage of the many benefits provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to achieve business agility, cost savings, and high availability by running their SAP environments on the AWS Cloud.
Many Enterprise customers run SAP production workloads on AWS today; including those that run on NON-SAP DBs (Oracle, MS SQL, DB2) or on SAP DBs (SAP HANA, SAP ASE). To support the demand of high memory instances, AWS have disclosed their SAP HANA instance roadmap (8TB and 16TB in 2018) and just made 4TB x1e instances available. A few examples of how AWS helped SAP customers cut costs, improve performance and agility include BP reducing 1/3 of their SAP infrastructure cost, Zappos successfully migrating to SAP HANA on AWS in less than 48 hours and enabling a major Healthcare and Life Science company to run BW on HANA with 30% better performance vs. on premise.
This guide is intended for SAP customers and partners who want to learn about the benefits and options for running SAP solutions on AWS, or who want to know how to implement and operate their SAP environment effectively on AWS.
Desktop management at any scale is a tedious job. Imaging, reimaging, and troubleshooting desktop systems consume valuable IT resources, and keep employees from being productive. Securing the information generated on desktops, tablets, and smartphones is no simple job either.
Many organizations are deploying virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) for these reasons. But for deployment to be successful, computing and storage infrastructures must deliver high-quality, predictable, and productive user experiences.
Often, the best way to accomplish this is through flash-based storage solutions due to its low latency/high IOPS nature. Unfortunately many IT professionals aren't sure what type of flash array is best for their needs or how to ensure that all elements of their VDI work seamlessly.
Download now and learn how to validate a provide VDI configuration across NexGen N5 Hybrid Flash Array, VMWare Horizon View, Cisco Unified Computing System™(UCS), and Cisco Nexus Switches.
Has your organization been dealing with storage latency and performance issues?
With a population of nearly 10 million people, Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the United States. It's no surprise that with 1.5 million people taking public transportation every day to help ease some of LA County's infamous traffic, making sure passengers get where they're going is a monumental task.
At the heart of it all is the organization's IT department. The LA Metro infrastructure consists of 600 servers, 500 of which are virtualized. When the city's IT team began receiving user complaints and experiencing performance issues with their Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment, they began looking for alternatives.
Download the case study now and learn how replacing the city's existing storage solution helped solve a wide range of technical problems and eliminated unnecessary latency, ensuring all 1.5 million passengers got where they needed to be.

Documents are an integral component to the successful operation of an organization. Whether in hardcopy or digital form, they enable the communication, transaction, and recording of business-critical information.
To ensure documents are used effectively, organizations are encouraged to continually evaluate and improve surrounding workflows. This may involve automating elements of document creation, securing the transfer and storage of information, and/or simplifying the retrieval of records and the data contained within. These types of enhancements can save time, money, and frustration.
This white paper will discuss top trends and requirements in the optimization of document-related business processes as well as general technology infrastructures for document management. It will also address how some office technology vendors have reacted to these trends to guide their design and development of products, solutions, and services.

The new IT conundrum is to decide to rent infrastructure or build out your data center. The data explosion of the past decade has left many enterprises awash in a mixed and disjointed storage environment. With different storage technologies for primary, backup and analytic storage pools and SSD options that can confound rather than help, many in IT are struggling to improve the efficiency, performance and cost structures of what has become a big part of IT's spend. Watch this webinar to learn more.
Founded in 1929, the Rutgers Business School offers undergraduate and graduate degrees with programs in accounting, business administration, finance, information technology, pharmaceuticals and supply chain management. By leveraging cloud services, the burgeoning school can deliver rapid virtualization and easy single sign-on without cutting corners. Read this case study to learn more.
The EMC VNX series is designed for flash using MCx multicore software optmized to deliver unprecedented transactional performance and capacity efficiency with no trade-offs. VNX can flexibly deploy flash that optimizes capacity, performance, or both to meet your application workload requirements (dedicated or mixed) - affordably.
ACCELERATE, CONSOLIDATE, AND SIMPLIFY
All-Flash Arrays (AFAs) are the preferred choice to accelerate high-performance OLTP and decision support/analytics applications on Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases. But not all AFAs are equal. Performance is just one dimension. XtremIO excels in all.
The data center is central to IT strategy and houses the computational power, storage resources, and applications
necessary to support an enterprise business. A flexible data center infrastructure than can support and quickly deploy new applications can result in significant competitive advantage, but designing such a data center requires solid initial planning and thoughtful consideration of port density, access-layer uplink bandwidth, true server capacity, oversubscription, mobility, and other details.

Cisco UCS Director is a vital, certified solution for EMC VSPEX that
supports V125 and V250 models. It delivers unified orchestration,
provisioning, and management across virtualization, computing,
network, and storage from a single-view portal. When EMC VSPEX
and Cisco UCS Director are combined, IT can shift focus from
managing infrastructure to delivering new service innovation.
This document describes Cisco HyperFlex™ HX Data Platform
Software, which revolutionizes data storage for hyperconverged
You’ll learn about the platform’s architecture and software-defined
storage approach, and how you can use it to eliminate the storage silos that complicate your IT infrastructure.
Hyperconvergence has been receiving a tremendous amount of attention because it represents the next step in the evolution of IT resource delivery. This technology takes the idea of integrating compute, storage and networking that started with converged systems design and has improved on those architectures by adding deeper levels of abstraction and automation. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) vendors promise simplified operation and the ability to quickly and easily expand capacity by deploying and launching additional modules; simplicity has been the key selling point for the HCI pioneers.
As HCI ventures even deeper into the enterprise and cloud environments, the architectures will need to become more efficient, agile and adaptable to help IT professionals shoulder the burden of rapidly growing data sets and workloads. This report discusses the benefits of HCI and the enhancements that must be
made to expand HCI deeper into the mainstream enterprise datacenter.
