When it comes to data protection, what matters most? You want the freedom to choose the types of data, applications, and computing platforms you protect. You want to seal off that data from security threats. You need space to house that data—the right space now with room to grow. You want to support older solutions as you evolve your technology environment to modern strategies, at a pace that suits your business. And you need the ability to reach out for that data at a moment’s notice without overstressing your network. In short, you need it all.
This white paper shows how Equinix has created the Equinix Media and Entertainment Ecosystem (EMEE) — a solution that leverages our global facilities and the software defined network (SDN) provisioning power of the Equinix Cloud Exchange.
In the Top 5 Reasons Why Enterprises Are Going Google, Cloud Sherpas explores why leading organizations like these have prepared for the digital workplace of tomorrow by moving their email and collaboration platforms to Google Apps for Work, such as:
Eliminating the need to manage hardware or software
Embracing a mobile, BYOD culture
Reducing IT costs and infrastructure
The purpose of this white paper is to describe the provider thinking and product elements that must be addressed to change the data center selection process from one that is tactical to one that is strategic in nature.
Selecting an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider can be a complex exercise that involves an array of considerations including business needs, budget, and application requirements. Buyers frequently respond to this complexity by filtering vendors based on variables that are more easily comparable, usually product features, location, and price. By contrast, performance, which is a critical factor to ensuring fit with business needs and ultimately satisfaction with the service, is often ignored. Virtual machine (VM) performance can be challenging to assess because it can vary drastically across vendors, instance sizes and prices, as well as in terms of a particular application’s unique requirements.
As an IT professional, you know that when you have many users to support, every second counts! Slow remote desktop connection times and poor, unreliable connection performance can add up to significant time wasted when extended over days, weeks and months of remote control sessions.
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.
Virtualization promises to boost efficiency and cut costs. Whether you’re running applications on physical or virtual machines, you still need to stay vigilant to guard against the constant and growing hazard of malware and other cyberthreats that can put your business at risk. This guide will show you how.
