The role of servers in your organization has changed substantially-with their uses, requirements, and complexity all increasing dramatically in recent years. Many of the traditional tools and techniques that worked in the past don't suffice any more. Consequently, server monitoring presents several critical battles in today's demanding environments.
Monitoring sits at the foundation of the service provider’s business. If monitoring operations aren’t optimized, service providers will continue to struggle to meet current demand—and find it increasingly difficult to adapt as new demands and opportunities arise. This white paper outlines how critical monitoring governance is to optimizing operations, and it details the key requirements to instituting effective monitoring governance in your organization.
Businesses are now competing in an application economy. More than ever, it is the caliber of applications that shapes an organization’s fortunes.

This white paper details the opportunities, the requirements and the strategies for delivering winning application-centric cloud services in the application economy

Backup is pervasive in today’s IT world, and getting there in the business world, with a total market opportunity of $5.8 billion.1 Not all backup is created equal, however. The challenge for today’s Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Value Added Resellers (VARs) is in educating their customers on the value of what lies beyond traditional backup, and what’s needed to provide insurance against downtime. What’s needed today is not simply backup, but intelligent business continuity. It’s time to look under the hood and kick the tires, making sure you’re getting the solution that delivers on today’s more complex business continuity demands.

Discovery Communications had an aging Lotus Notes and Domino platform that was not keeping up with the increasing demands of its users. The IT department was receiving repeated complaints about Lotus Notes and was experiencing training issues when on-boarding new employees. Discovery Communication’s management decided to migrate their users from their legacy Lotus Notes and Domino system to Microsoft Outlook and Exchange for the enhanced functionality and benefits that the Microsoft platform provided.
Learn how Discovery Communications seamlessly migrated over 7,000 mailboxes from Lotus Notes to Microsoft Exchange in a 10-week time frame while enabling long-term interoperability between Outlook users and legacy Notes email-enabled applications.
As virtualization technology evolves and improves, the server performance and power requirements for supporting a virtualized data center increase. Aging servers struggle to meet increasing virtual workload demands and tax your data center by consuming valuable space and power. Principled Technologies compared the performance of the new NEC Express5800/A2040b to an older HP ProLiant DL385 G6 as a representative legacy server. This lab validated report details how many legacy database servers the NEC Express5800/A2040b could consolidate and the amount of space and power it saved, while maintaining steady performance within the hosted VMs.
The OFS market is rapidly maturing from file storage services for consumers to technology solutions that require features to effectively manage and secure business data. As part of this evolution, there is increasing demand for alternatives to the “one-size-fits-all,” cloud-based approach, especially among current OFS users who currently leverage that deployment model. The fact that more than two-thirds of these respondents would be extremely interested in a deployment model that allows some or all data to be stored on-premises is significant, albeit not surprising given that almost all respondent organizations have some types of data that is prohibited from being stored in a third-party data center.
