Cloud computing refers to the use of Internet ("cloud") based computer technology for a variety of services. It is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualisedresources are provided as a service over the Internet. Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them.
The next generation user expects more do-it-yourself IT offerings. Whether it’s self-service portals with interfaces to rival Amazon or personal mobile devices with 24/7 business access, users are requesting more self-service functions and capability.
To the modern user of technology “consumer-grade” has become a standard, and it’s ITs’ job to not only appease but genuinely satisfy contemporary users. This research highlights four ways to satisfy the modern user who brings their own knowledge, devices, applications and technical expectations to the workplace.
Cities around the globe are undertaking “smart” initiatives that result in better services for citizens, a more attractive city for visitors and businesses, a better place to work, and greater cost savings.
There is a need to address key business and technological transitions in terms of application delivery and consumption. As such, data center managers are assessing what new capabilities their existing networks needs.
Today's datacenter networks must better adapt to and accommodate business-critical application workloads. Datacenters will have to increasingly adapt to virtualized workloads and to the ongoing enterprise transition to private and hybrid clouds.
Forward-thinking IT departments are using the cloud as a transformative engine, helping them transition from tactical systems administrators to strategic service brokers. In doing so, they have an opportunity to redefine their partnership with business groups and become more influential, effective leaders of revenue and growth.
To effectively respond to these challenges, public safety agencies must be able to rely on secure networks with integrated voice, video, and data capabilities. With these networks and their associated assets, agencies can obtain more timely and accurate information, enhancing situational awareness and improving response times. Cisco and our partners can help agencies obtain secure networks.
Walk past your data center, and you might hear a soft, plaintive call: “Feed me, feed me…” It is not your engineers
demanding more pizza. It is your servers and applications. And the call is growing louder.
Mobile and virtualized workloads, cloud applications, big data, heterogeneous devices: they are all growing in your
business, demanding previously unimagined capacity and performance from your servers and data center fabric.
And that demand is not slacking. Your employees, applications, and competitive advantage increasingly depend on
it. Those servers and applications need to be fed. And if you have not started planning for 40 gigabits per second
(Gbps) to the server rack, you will need to soon.
A growing number of enterprises are adopting both private and public cloud computing models. While virtualization, cloud, mobility, data analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are providing tremendous opportunities for businesses, they are also creating new challenges for IT departments.
Enterprises are rapidly adopting cloud computing solutions in order to meet dynamically changing business requirements. These solutions are typically comprised of both private and public cloud deployments, resulting in the creation of hybrid clouds that are designed to rapidly scale up and down in response to user demands, and they provide the advantages of elastic computing economics.
