Overcoming IT’s operational challenges based on infrastructure complexity is a serious issue.Not only is a piecemeal architecture difficult and inefficient to manage, but it is also very expensive when the Total Cost of Ownership is considered. Reducing that complexity not only frees up personnel but also budgetary resources.
Converged Infrastructure offers the opportunity for organizations to drastically increase their IT and user productivity at a significantly lower TCO. Improved IT efficiency and agility accelerates time to value by a significant margin.

One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization.
In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure
and processes to better meet business needs.
So far, most data centers have virtualized their least-critical workloads as a matter of basic cost containment. Virtualizing mission-critical applications is still forthcoming for the majority,though, largely due to infrastructural concerns. Complicating matters is the shift in IT purchasing decisions from IT to business management.
Integrated Computing Platforms (ICPs), private cloud computing, and public cloud services all leverage virtualization to achieve a number of IT and business goals, including increased ROI, reduced OpEx, and business process improvement. Now more than ever, it makes sense to explore the benefits of ICPs.

The "build-or-buy" decision between construction and colocation should be weighed carefully. This executive report will review six key factors that affect that choice, some of which extend beyond a basic TCO analysis.
Cloud datacenter security is becoming imperative in the new age of malware attacks. To stay competitive and secure, organizations are turning to smart networking in an effort to close the datacenter security gap. The combination of VMware NSX, AirWatch Tunnel and Horizon View helps close this gap and simplifies security management for IT professionals. With the upcoming prevalence of authentication and identity management in an organization’s infrastructure, the need to delegate and define network access continues to highlight the important role of hybrid cloud security that addresses all end-user devices.
This white paper will discuss how big data analytics, coupled with the right facilities and asset management software, can provide next-generation opportunities to improve facilities and asset management processes and reutnrs. It will examine how different organizations successfully use big data generated by their facilities and assets to help increase revenue, power operational efficiency, ensure service availability and mitigate risk. Most importantly, this white paper will reveal how your organization can leverage big data analytics to achieve similar benefits and transform the management of your organization's facilities and assets-and ultimately, your business.
Hear real world examples from service virtualization and mainframe experts about the way service virtualization can enable continuous integration to increase quality, reduce cost, and decrease project risk.

The data that resides within Salesforce.com is arguably some of an organization’s most valuable data for all current and future revenue – including contacts, purchase history, lead information, reports on prospects, sales quotes, signed contracts, and customer invoices. Salesforce has a robust data center and the infrastructure to protect your data from hardware failure, even on a catastrophic scale. However, it does not protect you from user error or data being overwritten.
While network closets take on all shapes and sizes, they are essentially an arm of the data center and as an important component of all mission-critical environments, must be organized, protected, and managed efficiently and effectively. IT professionals are charged with keeping the technology infrastructure functioning, even in the face of constrained resources and increasing complexity.

The foundation of trusted Internet communications are Secure Socket Link (SSL) certificates, an encryption technology installed on Web servers that permits transmission of sensitive data through an encrypted connection. Using a public-key infrastructure (PKI), SSL certificates authenticate the end-use Website and the endpoint server, making it difficult for those sites to be imitated or forged.The acquisition of SSL certificates should always be a relatively easy experience; however, the purchasing decision should never be regarded lightly. When businesses consider SSL certificates; there six Golden Rules a purchaser should keep in mind. This whitepaper provides an overview of the SSL certificated market, the six golden rules of purchasing SSL certificates and how Symantec addresses each of the golden rules. At the end of the day, people want to make sure their Web sites are secured with as little friction as possible—Symantec gives businesses every opportunity to achieve that goal.
