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.

If you are a Value Added Reseller (VAR), you know your business is changing fast as cloud services are replacing legacy deliverables, such as hardware and software. The reasons are clear: the cloud offers better, cheaper, and more stable services than the functionality it is replacing. And, the cloud is growing; by the end of 2013, the size of the cloud computing market will be about $150 billion (Gartner, 2010).
Online backup (OLB) is a particularly good entry to cloud services, because it is easy to sell, deploy and manage, keeps you connected to your clients and provides them with a vital, potentially business-saving service.

It turned to IntelePeer CoreCloud SIP Trunking and Avaya Session Border Controller Advanced for Enterprise.
The amount of data being stored is more than doubling every two years. IT departments eager to shrink data center footprints and consolidate servers and storage are preparing for a new generation of data servers. But while virtualized and cloud storage environments are expecting dramatic future growth, we have yet to widespread adoption across the board. Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), a low cost alternative for expanding legacy SANs with minimum investment, lets customers combine Ethernet data and fibre channel data traffic into a single high-speed network. While only 9 percent of users surveyed by have already adopted FCoE , that number is expected to grow to 26 percent in the next two years. And while cloud storage is expected to skyrocket over the next decade, security concerns and application compatibility are still an issue. This Storage CRN eZine, a part of our Thought Leadership Series, will discuss the state of the virtualized storage market, the current challenges facing integrators and vendors, and the steps necessary to take to meet an expected deluge of Big Data that will need to be stored and managed down the road.

IT Transformation is a concept that resonates with companies even more now than it did 12 months ago. It sounds synonymous with digital transformation, but in actuality, IT Transformation is the set of enabling technologies, processes, and focus areas that make effective digital transformation possible.
A company that transforms its IT infrastructure no longer has to rely on rigid, manual, siloed, legacy technologies. It sees a boost in IT operational speed, efficiency, scale, and cost effectiveness—tasks are automated, processes streamlined, and resources are freed up. Those IT-level improvements fuel a larger-scale digital transformation, allowing the company to thrive in today’s digital economy. It is able to out-innovate, out-think, and out-pace its competitors—ultimately becoming the disruptor, not the disrupted.
Today’s digital businesses are managed using critical business analyses that provide far greater insight into the business and how to maximize results. However, these high-value applications that use the latest software tools demand far more from IT infrastructure, as they utilize an order of magnitude more data and demand more compute resources than legacy applications. Legacy systems are no longer capable of meeting the present and future needs of the organization.
"Every organisation already has a system of agreement. It's how written agreements get prepared, signed, enacted, and managed. But typically, it involves a messy, improvised mix of printing, signing, scanning, faxing, and overnighting paper agreements.

It's time for a change.
The DocuSign System of Agreement Platform connects the world's No. 1 eSignature technology to every other aspect of the agreement process. Read this white paper to learn how to modernise your System of Agreement, including how to:
- Prepare agreements with a high degree of automation
- Sign agreements quickly and securely
- Act on agreement terms after signing
- Manage agreements with flexible options"
