While VMware's virtualization capabilities ushered in a world of potential benefits, they also brought an entirely new world of challenges from a monitoring perspective-challenges that legacy system management tools and point solutions are ill-equipped to address. This white paper offers an overview of the unique challenges of monitoring service levels of business applications in a virtualized environment, and it reveals how Nimsoft products uniquely addresses these challenges.

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.
A beginner's guide.
Whether we’ve realized it or not, everyone with an email account has received a transactional email, otherwise known as the alert that Bob accepted your friend request, the receipt for the days-of-the-week socks you just bought online, or even a welcome email for signing up for that new deal of the day website.
Transactional emails are triggered based on actions that we take as consumers when we interact with a company online, whether it be through their newsletter or website.
Although they are incredibly overlooked, transactional emails are unique to an occasion and recipient, and may be one of the best ways for you to connect with your customers.
Are you utilizing transactional emails to their full potential?

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.

With the massive growth of data from the Internet of Things (IOT) to collaboration to compliance, users are demanding low-cost, flexible, easy to scale, and simple to manage data center storage solutions. Software-defined object storage delivers on these demands by capitalizing on industry standard x86 infrastructure and storage technologies to deploy more economic and manageable storage solutions compared to legacy storage architectures.
Cloudian HyperStore is an example of the new breed of software-designed storage. Cloudian HyperStore allows companies to build their own public or private cloud storage infrastructure including enterprise IT organizations, cloud service providers, or cloud hosting providers. This document gathers the essential information about a scale-out storage reference architecture and a real-world example from the Cloudian support organization that uses the Cloudian HyperStore® appliances that are powered by Lenovo hardware.
Malicious hackers are becoming more sophisticated, often involving organized crime and even foreign governments. As mobile devices and applications continue to permeate businesses and society as a whole, the magnitude of the security threats grows exponentially. As a result, IT experts are predicting that 2015 will be the worst year on record as it pertains to IT security breaches.
Virtualization provides organizations with many costs savings and significant business agility. One virtualization technology that many organizations take advantage of is called virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). VDI empowers employees and employers with many benefits, no matter the size of the organization. One such benefit with VDI is the ability to provide centrally managed desktop environments to employees on any device. In doing so, the organization can rest assured that information is always accessed and managed in a secure fashion – regardless of where the user is accessing information from.
In 2012, the storage industry will see big shifts as capacity growth starts to decelerate and more data gets moved to the cloud where it can not only be stored but also analyzed in new ways to gain business insights.

The evolution of enterprise IT has finally reached the point where mid-size companies can cost effectively exploit the benefits of fully virtualized cloud operations and large and mid-size companies alike can greatly reduce the costs of expanding already virtualized infrastructures.
The linchpin to this transformation is Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) technology. HCI overcomes barriers such as the need to invest in large blocks of disparate compute and storage facilities that have prevented many mid-size enterprises from reaping the benefits of cloud-based operations which is to say the orchestration of virtualized data center resources across multiple workflows.
The Need for Comprehensive Wireless LAN Security: WLANs face many threats that strong authentication and link encryption do not address. Because wireless is a shared medium, it is subject to malicious attacks such as de-authentication broadcasts, evil twin access point/Honeypot. Therefore you need to implement the same protection mechanisms that you deploy ubiquitously on your WAN gateway, on your wireless LAN as well.
