Networking involves at least two devices capable of being networked with at least one usually being a computer. The devices can be separated by a few meters (e.g. via Bluetooth) or thousands of kilometers (e.g. via the Internet).
Cut the cost and complexity of managing you large, hybrid server estate. Learn how Turkcell, the leading GSM operator in Turkey, reaps benefits from server automation including reductions in the time needed to check adherence to security compliance policies from 55 hours to 20 minutes and cutting the time taken to provision virtual PCs from five days to 40 minutes.
Read how Specsavers reduces the time from test creation to test execution by 50% and cuts the time required for producing quality reports from 3 hours to 10 minutes a day through automated application lifecycle management.
Learn how Isbank, Turkey’s largest bank, dramatically reduced testing times for Functional Testing automation from 6 man-days to a few hours. Read about the benefits of adopting an Application Lifecycle Management approach to improve software quality, automate testing processes and safeguard mission-critical applications while supporting growth.
Enterprise IT teams face increasing challenges as the amount of valuable data living on endpoints continues to grow. Adding complexity is the mounting list of government regulations to which enterprises must comply. Read how endpoint backup can satisfy data collection and preservation requirements in a more streamlined and cost-effective manner than traditional e-discovery methods.
Many companies still rely on a legacy, platform-specific data backup solution, even though it doesn't provide consistent backup across the enterprise. This outdated approach becomes especially risky when IT faces a data migration initiative. Organizations risk immense data loss and an expensive, intensive disaster recovery undertaking if they launch a data migration effort without first properly securing their data.
A large amount of mission-critical data exists exclusively on laptops and desktops (i.e. "endpoints") making them a primary source of unnecessary (and often unrecognized) data loss risk for today's organizations. Through helping thousands of top brands around the world properly manage and protect the critical corporate data on their endpoints, Code 42 identified the five common stages of "enterprise endpoint backup grief." In which stage is your organization?
A new research survey reveals several important—and potentially alarming—trends on endpoint backup. As more and more users create essential data on their desktops and laptops—and often store at least a copy of that data on those devices—it’s increasingly clear that endpoint backup must be a fundamental part of the IT department’s mandate when it comes to ensuring availability of critical data.
While consumerization offers many benefits for both end users and the enterprise in terms of convenience, efficiency and productivity, it presents important challenges for IT departments, especially in terms of endpoint backup and data security. To reap the benefits of consumerization while avoiding security and other pitfalls requires an understanding of the origins of this latest IT trend, its enduring presence and how the most successful enterprises have effectively embraced this new reality.
Traditional backup protected information stored on servers in data centers, and it was very manageable. A predictable, controlled, contained environment that underwent scheduled backups and updates. But then the inevitable happened: office employees began saving information to desktops; mobile workers began doing the same with laptops; and backup admins began losing control.
There’s no doubt consumer-grade sync and share solutions are convenient, but it’s the risk they introduce to the enterprise that
keeps IT leaders up at night. But what really constitutes an enterprise-grade sync and share solution? To get a second glance from enterprise IT, sync and share solutions must, at a minimum, include the basic business feature sets: security, integrations, roles and permissions, audit trails,remote wipe, comprehensive APIs, real-time administration, bandwidth controls and de-duplication.
Service providers around the world share concerns about running out of bandwidth. Business challenges surrounding continued bandwidth growth, linked to video, mobility, and cloud applications, are significant. Service providers also report declining revenue from a cost-per-bit perspective, so not only does the network need to grow, it also needs to grow more cost effectively.

A new kind of storage architecture allows IT to consolidate remote servers and data in the data center by decoupling storage from its server over any distance and still get the same performance as if the storage remained local to the branch. Learn how organizations can now consolidate remote infrastructure to increase security and efficiency, without impacting performance in branch offices
The technologies examined reduce operational expenses (OpEx), not capital expenses (CapEx) that has traditionally been the focus of virtualization. Many companies implemented virtualization with the goal of saving money in the form of fewer servers to buy (with a side benefit of reducing the footprint of the servers and lowering the required power and cooling). Most of the savings were in capital, but do not expect the same with many of the technologies listed here, because some may even require some additional capital expenditures (at least for software) in order to save on the day-to-day operations of IT. The bigger cost in running an IT department is in the OpEx category anyway, so savings there are recurring savings.
In order to help businesses assess their collaboration strategies, Cisco recently commissioned a worldwide study to explore the business value of in-person communication in distributed organizations with respect to their interactions with partners and customers.
Microsoft SQL Server 2014 has some great new features that will allow you to develop higher performing, more scalable next-generation applications using the hybrid cloud. Microsoft is building on the established foundation of SQL Server 2008 and 2012. Using similar architecture and management tools, customers will be able to smoothly upgrade their systems and skills based on the need for the new features and according to their own schedule.
AWS has introduced Auto Scaling so that you can take advantage of cloud computing without having to incur the costs of adding more personnel or building your own software. You can use Auto Scaling to scale for high availability, to meet increasing system demand, or to control costs by eliminating unneeded capacity. You can also use Auto Scaling to quickly deploy software for massive systems, using testable, scriptable processes to minimize risk and cost of deployment.
