As companies mature in their use of public cloud environments, many realize they need to augment security availability services as well as formulate best practices in determining which data is appropriate for public cloud environments.
This case study details the application of thermal characterization test methods to four medium power IGBT modules containing two half bridges, demonstrating results showing degradation of the thermal structure in conjunction with power cycling of the components
Take the pain and time-consuming task of PCB footprint and schematic symbol generation off your plate. This white paper reports on how Optimum Design Associates' pre-qualified PCB library symbols and footprints not only meet but, in many cases, exceed user requirements.
As a leader in domain management and internet security, Verisign’s network supports more than 82 billion transactions on a daily basis, enabling nearly 50 percent of the internet’s domains. Building networks to survive the largest DDoS attacks on the internet is part of Verisign’s heritage, and Verisign has been using DDoS mitigation techniques for more than 16 years while protecting the .com and .net infrastructures. This gives Verisign the ability to flex its entire 1+ tbps infrastructure as needed in real-time response to attack scenarios against itself and its customers.
The Verisign Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Trends Report contains the observations and insights derived from mitigations enacted on behalf of, and in cooperation with, customers of Verisign DDoS Protection Services, and the security research of Verisign iDefense Security Intelligence Services. It represents a unique view into the attack trends unfolding online for the previous quarter, including attack statistics, DDoS malicious code analysis and behavioral trends
Cyber security threats have become more pervasive and damaging than ever, ranging from advanced persistent threats to massive distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. By moving toward a more holistic, proactive approach to addressing all potential DDoS security threats, you help ensure the availability and security of your business-critical network even as zero-day threats emerge and known threats evolve.
To tackle the advanced DDoS threats of today and tomorrow, it is increasingly clear that cloud DDoS mitigation providers must rapidly innovate solutions and implement them quickly on a global scale. To help meet the performance, availability and functional requirements of operating critical Internet infrastructure, Verisign developed its innovative DDoS mitigation platform, called Athena. This technical report describes the Athena platform, a globally distributed DDoS mitigation system that provides comprehensive protection against network- and application-layer attacks, and specializes in mitigating Layer-7 and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)-based attacks
Guido Jouret makes the case for surveillance that is no longer about a defensive security posture, but an offensive business imperative. Customers want to analyze the data they're collecting from these IP-enabled systems, from heat maps to the tracking of their customers to tighter integration between physical security infrastructure and other data center applications. The time has never been better.
This Executive Summary of the Next Generation Data Center white paper highlights IBM’s vision for the next-generation data center, its potential to be truly revolutionary and the prescribed pathway for getting there.
Four technology trends—cloud computing, mobile technology, social collaboration and analytics—are shaping the business and converging on the data center. But few data center strategies are designed with the requisite flexibility, scalability or resiliency to meet the new demands. Read the white paper to learn how a good data center strategy can help you prepare for the rigors and unpredictability of emerging technologies. Find out how IBM’s predictive analytics are helping companies build more accurate, forward-looking data center strategies and how those strategies are leading to more agile, efficient and resilient infrastructures.
Virtualization promises cost savings, improved productivity, and the ability to transform your business. But too often security can either detract from the performance gains that virtualization promises, or just not give you the protection you need. Getting the balance right is critical.
It is imperative that emerging IaaS providers and MSPs gain deep insights into existing pricing models so they can attain low cost structures, increase profitability, boost competitiveness, and improve customer retention.
CIOs and other senior IT leaders have a growing responsibility to ensure that the right steps for cost savings and optimization are understood and applied. This report focuses on the clear and practical steps you can take to optimize cloud spend and get the most value for your dollar.
This report provides a detailed overview of the Linux container ecosystem. It explains the various components of container technology and analyzes the ecosystem contributions from companies to accelerate the adoption of Linux-based containers.
In a second-quarter 2014 Gigaom Research survey of 500 IT decision-makers at large U.S. companies, we identified strategic buyers as those who report using cloud resources for new business and revenue streams as opposed to those who don’t.
This report will help CIOs, application architects, and IT decision-makers identify common patterns of implementation failures and successes and provide a framework for evaluating multi-cloud environments.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is not just a trend anymore, it's becoming a reality for today's successful organizations. The growing mobile workforce expects to connect to the corporate network anytime, anywhere, using the mobile device of their choice. And as more and more companies start to adopt social business technologies they are finding that leveraging cloud and mobile together can help them work more efficiently.
The market for cloud compute infrastructure as a service (a virtual data center of compute, storage and network resources delivered as a service) is still maturing and rapidly evolving. Strategic providers must therefore be chosen carefully.
This report summarizes testing of CenturyLink Cloud Hyperscale compute instances in April 2014. Compute instances from Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Rackspace Cloud, as well as non-Hyperscale CenturyLink Cloud instances were included in testing for comparison purposes. CenturyLink engaged CloudHarmony to conduct this testing and provide independent performance analysis and comparisons of these services. This report summarizes the results of this testing.
