This guide was created to offer a preliminary understanding of
Cloud computing, so that business owners and managers will
be better positioned to make the move toward Cloud services
sooner, rather than later.
Over the past two decades, the conferencing and collaboration industry has introduced a series of enterprise communications offerings that address these challenges by enabling voice, video, and data collaboration at a distance – saving customers time and money, fostering team collaboration, and improving employee work-life balance. More recently, video conferencing and collaboration solutions have moved to the "cloud," giving customers cost effective, scalable, and more flexible purchasing options to meet their expanding communications needs.

This paper addresses many common business challenges facing IT organizations, such as enabling mobile workstyles without compromising security, streamlining desktop management efforts as the number of employees in remote offices and offshore locations increases and making the user experience personal through self-service access to applications and desktops.
In this ebook, we’ll look at IT’s new role in business strategy: producing new revenue streams, guiding the way through the hosted options, taming new cloud-based app workflows, and using the cloud to help ensure their organization’s success.
Riverbed delivers application performance for the globally connected enterprise. With Riverbed, enterprises can successfully and intelligently implement strategic initiatives such as virtualization, consolidation, cloud computing, and disaster recovery without fear of compromising performance.
Organizations have gained significant benefit from virtualizing servers and storage environments, and now face the daunting task of deploying new network architectures to keep pace. Software-defined networking holds significant promise to deliver a new network architecture that is abstracted and virtualized; however, organizations would be well served to learn from previous efforts to virtualize other domains in order to avoid making the same mistakes. Riverbed and VMware joined forces to help eliminate those problems and make it easier to deploy VXLAN overlay networks in highly virtualized data centers by integrating application-aware network performance management software and vSphere 5.1
In January 2012, Riverbed® Technology announced version 9.5 of its Cascade® network performance management solution, which included a number of major enhancements. Collectively, the new capabilities are designed to improve visibility into the health and activity of applications and services traversing networks from the branch to the data center.
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) offers organizations the means to centrally manage and deliver desktops as a service to reduce costs, increase data security, and streamline desktop management while enabling anytime, anywhere access across a wide variety of devices. IT consumerization trends such as BYOD (bring your own device) and device diversity are accelerating VDI adoption, which is expected to double over the next year.
In this paper, Zebra shows how to accelerate the path to IoT through the Visible Value Chain (VVC). It enables organizations to gain real-time visibility into their operations allowing them to be more nimble, agile, and make better-informed business decisions. Once organizations have seamlessly enabled device connection to the data center, they can see events occurring throughout their value chain in real time—and act upon them. Doing so creates new value and intelligence from both legacy and new devices, while mining the vast riches of Big Data.
Digital voices are everywhere in a digital factory. In this brief, we’ll elaborate on the technology tools digital factories use for three common functions: asset management, production planning and materials replenishment.
Today, businesses of all sizes are adopting cloud services to accelerate growth, create more efficient operations and expand their reach. In this white paper, you’ll find scenarios and economic justification for making a shift to enterprise content collaboration with Box.
This NetApp Whitepaper reviews NetApp's vision of Nondisruptive Operations and Clustered Data ONTAP and how it goes far beyond eliminating unplanned downtime or even common forms of planned downtime reducing opex and capex.
In this IDC Analyst Connection, NetApp posed a number of questions to Ashish Nadkarni, research director of IDC's Storage Systems research practice, on clustered storage and why it matters; how firms are using it; and key considerations when evaulating systems.
There are many situations where having the option to scale the same enterprise storage out, up or both is a better way forward than continuing to rely on the traditional scale up model. In this report the Evaluator Group compares the approaches and points out the significant operational and economic advantages of the new scale out paradigms.
As the amount of data created by organizations grows, efficient management of these resources is becoming increasingly important. Simply retaining data is not enough; effective organizations must be able to leverage their IT and intellectual resources to deliver business value. This Evaluator Group report looks at the popular trend of the adoption of IT as a Service (ITaaS), also known as cloud services. As well as the several technologies needed to deliver ITaaS or Cloud.
