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.
Data center leaders that opt for basic PDUs because they cost less than intelligent PDUs are making a big mistake. The truth is intelligent PDUs offer a significantly higher return on investment (ROI). Learn why intelligent PDUs are the smart choice.
In this white paper, we look at various cloud models, and assess their suitability to solve IT challenges. We provide recommendations on what to look for in a cloud provider. Finally, we take a look at the IBM Cloud portfolio.
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.
