Efficient utilization of shared compute, storage, and networking resources is essential in today’s virtualized data center. VMware estimates that server virtualization has reduced CapEx and OpEx costs by 40-60% in most companies. That’s real value, but is only fully realizable with the right hardware that allows Enterprise IT administrators and Managed Service Providers to leverage compute and capacity resources wherever they are available. QLogic has the answer.

How much will your business grow over the next couple of years? Reaching this goal from where your business I now requires a space efficient data center that can scale to meet your application performance demands as your services and user base grow. A hyperconverged appliance can unite the necessary compute, I/O storage, networking, and virtualization resources to become an integral part of the scalable data center. In addition to delivering reliable performance and scalability, your hyperconverged appliance should be easy to manage.

Examine the common operational and business challenges of traditional desktop management facing SMB organizations, including infrastructure investment and implementation-related IT services and costs. Get a clear understanding how Citrix VDI-in-a-Box, an affordable, predictable turnkey VDI package, offers unique advantages compared to other VDI solutions and why SMBs can now realize the same enterprise-class desktop virtualization benefits.
Examine the top five VDI considerations from an SMB point of view and compare two approaches to implementing VDI: the traditional enterprise VDI architecture and VDI-in-a-Box with a shared-nothing architecture.
This video shows you how the new Citrix VDI-in-a-Box 5 makes deploying virtual desktops easier, more intuitive and simpler than ever before. With a completely revamped administration interface, the latest HDX technology stack, expanded hypervisor choices to include Microsoft Hyper-V and a completely integrated Citrix offering, VDI-in-a-Box 5 makes virtual desktops a breeze.
This video shows you how easy it is to deploy VDI-in-a-Box and highlights all the Citrix products with which it works. You can go from zero to production in under an hour. Its open architecture runs on the most popular hypervisors: Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware VSphere.
Organizations rely heavily on IT to run and grow the business, and investments must be made to maintain or gain a competitive advantage. But where are organizations placing their bets? According to ESG Research's 2010 IT Spending Survey, top investments will focus on server virtualization, data center consolidation, upgrading networks, and protecting and managing data. Now is the time to begin consolidating the data center network. Find more informational documents like this one to help you sell 10GbE at Emulex.com/10gbeNIC.

Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what you need and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals.
Cisco DNA is the open, software-driven platform that turns vision into reality. Virtualization, automation, analytics, and cloud, all in one architecture.
Because many SQL Server implementations are running on virtual machines already, the use of a hyperconverged appliance is a logical choice. The Dell EMC XC Series with Nutanix software delivers high performance and low Opex for both OLTP and analytical database applications. For those moving from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2016, this hyperconverged solution provides particularly significant benefits.

No matter how advanced data centers may become, they remain in a perpetual state of change in order to meet the demands of virtualized environments. But with the advent of software-defined storage (SDS) architecture, capabilities associated with hyperconverged technologies (including compute, storage, and networking), help data centers meet virtualization requirements with less administrator intervention at webscale.

Social networking, an increasingly mobile workforce, virtualization technology, cloud computing and more have affected every department in the enterprise, including IT. As technology continues to advance and the new reality is based on an infrastructure that includes physical, virtual, and cloud resources, IT departments need to find new ways of managing and securing this vastly different technology ecosystem. Read this white paper to learn the myriad of benefits that cloud-driven technology can provide, including reclaiming your IT team as the central nervous system of the organization!
Undoubtedly you are aware of network virtualization, but perhaps you’ve yet to hear a compelling case for it. If the extended network capabilities and simplified management enabled by network virtualization aren’t compelling enough reasons, data center security should be. To manage today’s coordinated and persistent security threats, which often come from within, data centers need to implement “Zero Trust” networking. Virtualization puts it within your reach. Discover why — download this free business case white paper now.
