Business teams striving to move quickly into new markets and launch new products and services are demanding more from IT organizations that have traditionally been focused on avoiding downtime, ensuring security and compliance, and holding down costs. Cloud computing offers compelling benefits for IT and the business to gain on-demand access to IT resources for new application development, as well as for running existing applications.
This white paper will give you perspective on how cloud computing is addressing today’s most pressing IT and business challenges. Public cloud with hybrid cloud capabilities has become the preferred cloud model and it’s important to know the types of hybrid cloud capabilities enterprises should evaluate when considering cloud computing. Through three real-world case studies you’ll also see how VMware vCloud Air specifically delivers on the promise of public cloud with hybrid cloud capabilities.
Cloud computing adoption continues to expand as the overall benefits of cloud (cost efficiency, self-service, and IT standardization) are becoming more broadly recognized. While private cloud is the primary type of cloud infrastructure that is in use today, organizations are finding that cloud can no longer be a standalone IT sourcing and consumption model. Enterprises demand greater flexibility and scalability, leading them to invest in hybrid cloud models, which supply them with a seamless application, data, and management environment across all of their IT resources. IDC expects that the percentage of users who adopt private or public cloud models will diminish over the next several years, as enterprises increasingly choose to implement a hybrid cloud model.
The advent of cloud computing and software-defined data center architectures for modern application delivery has made networking more sensitive than ever before. Applications in the digital age require networks that can expand and contract dynamically based on consumer demand. Enterprises are implementing software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver the automation required by these new environments, but the dynamic nature of SDN makes network management and monitoring fundamentally more challenging.
Network infrastructure teams need monitoring tools that can provide visibility into these new and constantly changing networks. This white paper explores the importance of SDN monitoring and examines a leading example of a solution, CA Performance Management with CA Virtual Network Assurance integration.

For a network that better supports your cloud and brings the most value possible to your business, its design has to be considered in the early stages of cloud planning. Read the white paper "Networking for cloud computing" to discover specific networking considerations for public, private and hybrid clouds.
Users expect quick, consistent access to their business-critical data and applications around the clock. That’s why outages, whether they are planned or unplanned, can negatively affect revenue, consumer trust and your reputation.
"It is very well understood that Business Enterprises today need to become more agile, meet new and increasing workload and security requirements, while reducing overall IT cost and risk. To meet these requirements and remain competitive many companies are turning to cloud computing. Companies thus need to formulate a strategy that can easily move them from traditional on-premises IT to private or public clouds.
Oracle understand the need for IT organizations to move to cloud computing at the same time also recognizes that moving to the cloud is a multi-step journey that starts with standardization and consolidation of IT infrastructure and ends by moving applications and data to the cloud.
The PDF is meant to help you gauge through the Oracle’s SPARC servers and give you an experience of simplified journey to the cloud by using the same technology for both cloud and on-premises deployments. No matter where your IT organization is on the journey to the cloud SPARC servers will be an i
"In today’s IT infrastructure, data security can no longer be treated as an afterthought, because billions of dollars are lost each year to computer intrusions and data exposures. This issue is compounded by the aggressive build-out for cloud computing. Big data and machine learning applications that perform tasks such as fraud and intrusion detection, trend detection, and click-stream and social media analysis all require forward-thinking solutions and enough compute power to deliver the performance required in a rapidly evolving digital marketplace.
Companies increasingly need to drive the speed of business up, and organizations need to support their customers with real-time data. The task of managing sensitive information while capturing, analyzing, and acting upon massive volumes of data every hour of every day has become critical.
This whitepaper illustrates how Finance applications in the cloud will help to transform the finance function with technology and embedded best practices that enable companies of all sizes to remain agile and competitive.
Cloud computing has been gaining momentum for years. As the technology leaves the early adopter phase and becomes mainstream, many organizations find themselves scrambling to overcome the challenges that come with a more distributed infrastructure. One of those difficulties is getting through a major cloud migration.
It is one thing to roll out a few applications and cloud pilot projects, it is an entirely different challenge to start using the cloud across multiple lines of business at massive scale. That is the point that organizations are beginning to reach, and the time has come to take a serious look at cloud migration best practices.
Private cloud computing can better align IT with business concerns by making IT efficient, responsive, and cost-effective. Learn how to start your private cloud with automation and orchestration to gain operational efficiency and financial benefits.
