Has your organization been dealing with storage latency and performance issues?
With a population of nearly 10 million people, Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the United States. It's no surprise that with 1.5 million people taking public transportation every day to help ease some of LA County's infamous traffic, making sure passengers get where they're going is a monumental task.
At the heart of it all is the organization's IT department. The LA Metro infrastructure consists of 600 servers, 500 of which are virtualized. When the city's IT team began receiving user complaints and experiencing performance issues with their Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment, they began looking for alternatives.
Download the case study now and learn how replacing the city's existing storage solution helped solve a wide range of technical problems and eliminated unnecessary latency, ensuring all 1.5 million passengers got where they needed to be.
How do you know what the right storage set up is for you? How do you ensure that you're using best practices when implementing?
As IT virtualization continues to become more and more prevalent, the storage component of the virtualization architecture continues to play a critical role in performance and availability. Additionally, the ability to benchmark and predict storage performance in a virtualized environment is essential to an efficient and well-run VDI setup.
Download now and learn how to select and size the best storage array for your VMWare deployment to maximize your VM density and increase ROI.
Looking for the right Flash Array for you? Tired of all data being treated the same but want to save time and budget?
Flash storage is helping to address the latency inherent with disk drives, enabling you to virtualize more, and reduce application response times. It's an inescapable fact that the $/GB of flash is much higher than disk drives.
So why do the majority of storage vendors indiscriminately accelerate all data, regardless of its value to your business?
All-flash arrays waste money by storing non-critical data in flash, and hybrid arrays can't control whether mission-critical or non-critical data accesses flash, leading to unpredictable performance. So what do you do to find a solution that addresses both of these issues?
Download now and see NexGen's approach to value-driven data management. Make it simple to control what data is stored in flash and affordably tailor application performance to match your organizations priorities now!

Code signing is at a crossroads. In many enterprises, the traditional approach remains standard procedure: you purchase a code-signing certificate, download it, and deploy it locally for all your code-signing needs.
Delivering combination of real time voice, video, and data is bandwidth intensive and requires complex network configuration to ensure the delivery of these time sensitive applications.
Download this paper to learn the recent WAN technology trends to enable companies to roll out and support UC without the cost and complexity of traditional WAN.
Traditional WAN technologies are a mismatch for modern branch networks.
Enterprises need branch offices to be up and running quickly. Branch WAN costs are increasing dramatically. So is WAN traffic. IT departments are losing visibility and control. This is not sustainable. There has to be a new way!

Today’s malware authors continue to increase their capabilities faster than security solutions can adapt to them. Whether it’s changing their attacks or hiding malicious code within web pages, it’s more difficult to identify legitimate network traffic. With first-generation network security devices, it is nearly impossible to defend against today’s threats. The situation will get worse before it gets better. Adversaries now utilize agile development and testing methods to develop their malware, they test new malware against the latest security software to increase effectiveness. Next-generation network security devices are emerging that provide the visibility and situational context required to meet today’s threats. These solutions use security automation to provide a sophisticated solution that is both lightweight and agile
