Moving applications and workloads to the cloud has become a major goal for most IT decision-makers. But cloud migration can come with challenges and pitfalls for organizations that haven’t done their homework. This paper examines some real-world examples of organizations that successfully made the transition with the help of an experienced vendor with bold new ideas

From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded.
The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp

Disaster recovery (DR) and long-term retention of data, for security as well as regulatory compliance, can be very challenging for mid-sized organizations. Keeping a secondary site up for DR can get very expensive and dealing with tape can be slow and costly. As a result, many mid-sized organizations are looking to the efficiencies of the cloud, such as scale, elasticity, agility, and lower initial storage costs, to expand their data protection environments. Check out this easy-to-absorb infographic to learn how to achieve powerful, converged, easy to deploy and manage, cloud-ready data protection.

Cloud is not simply a new technology platform, it’s a new way of running your IT processes. Success changes relationships with users, with services and with operations. Learn what to anticipate as you embark on cloud – and how to ensure success not just in your datacenter, but in your business.
The role of IT is changing from a traditional focus on cost-efficient enablement to a more strategic contribution. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), while important, is being surpassed by a growing focus on automation and orchestration that is needed to fulfill enterprise demands for security, agility, and innovation. The cloud-grade enterprise network – spanning the campus, data center, and branch – must be able to respond to rapid changes in business, growing reliance on hybrid cloud architectures, and the needs of users and customers.
Oracle Linux is a cloud-ready operating system that is a cost-effective and high-performance choice when modernizing infrastructure or consolidating database instances on Oracle Database. This paper explains why Oracle Linux is your best choice for Oracle Database environments.
Many businesses are adopting a multi-cloud infrastructure. However, managing data and communication between multiple cloud environments is often challenging and complex. Therefore, companies often try to find a technical partner that can help them. Companies with on-premise data centers need some type of interconnect to access their products and services hosted on the cloud. The traditional Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection method usually can’t meet enterprise speed,stability, security, and compliance requirements.This whitepaper describes the challenges that companies face when building dedicated connections between different cloud environments and how Alibaba Cloud’s Express Connect is the perfect solution for them
When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.
Enterprises are rapidly embracing cloud services to speed innovation and drive cost savings. The most innovative IT organizations in these enterprises are shifting to software-defined “virtual data centers” that connect, aggregate, and configure public and private computing resources in unprecedented ways. These IT organizations use open private cloud infrastructure within a corporate data center or at a hosting site (managed cloud services) in conjunction with public cloud services to meet all their business requirements.
This whitepaper explores how Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service is the ideal entry-level service for running Oracle Database in Oracle Cloud. It delivers an affordable and fully managed Oracle Database 12c Release 2 experience, with enterprise options, running on Oracle Exadata.
As IT becomes the cloud, and ever more central to business success, projects to transform the IT systems, and more specifically the data center, have become strategic and a competitive differentiator. A crucial piece of the data center transformation puzzle, and one which is too often left until the end, is the network. As the central nervous system of the data center, its transformation must be an integral part of the entire data center transformation project.
The broad adoption of the next generation of cloud, mobile, M2M, and big data applications is having profound impacts on IT and network infrastructures. Compared to traditional applications, these applications have much shorter life cycles. You must be able to spin them up, spin them down, and grow and shrink them on demand. Furthermore, you must be able to move these application workloads within a data center or across geographically distributed data centers, resulting in increased management complexities.
With companies embracing mobility to maintain competitive advantage in the digital era, information security threats have increased exponentially. Userfriendly technologies such as mobile devices, mobile apps, and cloud storage are often hacker-friendly too, creating opportunities for cybercriminals to covertly infiltrate company data. This opens the door to data loss, reputational damage, loss of proprietary information – not to mention the associated regulatory penalties and potential legal fees. IT bears the brunt of responsibility for information security, yet according to Forrester, internal incidents top the list of security breach causes in 2014.
