As organizations continue to virtualize their infrastructures to gain higher levels of operational efficiency, VM sprawl and resource utilization are two key factors that can quickly create havoc for IT admins. In resource-siloed infrastructures, where multiple administrators are in charge of different pieces of the infrastructure, complexity continues to grow as mission-critical data sets and organizations grow. This is especially true in dynamic, mission-critical environments, where one wrong move or lack thereof could significantly impact an application, the end-user experience, or worst case, company revenue.
The impact of hyper-converged infrastructures on IT has been profound. In fact, 85% of respondents to a recent ESG survey already use or plan to use a hyper-converged solution in the coming months. Though that number appears high, it is not all that surprising. ESG also asked organizations to identify which factors drove them to deploy or considering deploying a hyper-conv

Flexibility is important, since many future initiatives—big data, machine learning, emerging technologies, and new business directions—will be built on this cloud structure.
No matter what shape your cloud infrastructure takes, Dell EMC converged and hyper-converged platforms and innovations like Dell EMC VscaleTM Architecture, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors, deliver the pathways to scale-up and scale-out, today and tomorrow.
In the era of big data, you must accommodate a rapidly increasing volume, variety and velocity of data while extracting actionable business insight from that data, faster than ever before. Download this white paper to learn how.
This paper introduces five architectural principles guiding the development of the next generation data center (NGDC). It describes key market influences leading a fundamental enterprise IT transformation and the technological trends that support it. The five principles are: scale-out, guaranteed performance, automated management, data assurance, and global efficiencies. Cloud infrastructure delivery models such as IaaS, private clouds, and software-defined data centers (SDDC) are foundations for the NGDC. In an era where IT is expected to ensure productiongrade support with a plethoric flow of new applications and data, these models demonstrate how to eliminate bottlenecks, increase self-service, and move the business forward. The NGDC applies a software-defined everything (SDx) discipline in a traditional, hardware-centric business to gain business advantage.
Virtualization is helping organizations like yours utilize data center hardware infrastructure more effectively, leading to a reduction in costs and improvements in operational efficiencies. In many cases, virtualization initiatives begin internally, with your own hardware and networking infrastructure augmented by tools like VMware® or Linux® KVM and OpenStack® to help manage your virtualized environment. Often referred to as private cloud, these projects are fueling significant expansion into what can be referred to as the public cloud.

How do you choose the best cloud security solution? Denial of service, data breaches, and SQL injection attacks are growing faster than on-premises firewalls can scale—you need a cloud-based security solution to meet the threat. Learn about the various solutions and techniques for web, DNS, and infrastructure security.
This white paper discusses how the data broker along with Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches integrates with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure to provide fabric traffic visibility for security, monitoring, and operations purposes.
Gartner: Moving Toward the All Solid-State Storage Data Center
Are you only using solid-state arrays for your primary data? If so, you’re missing out on the benefits flash can deliver to other applications, such as active archives, data lakes, and big data infrastructures. In this independent report, Gartner finds that progressive I&O leaders are already moving toward an all solid-state data center and predicts that others will soon follow. Read the report here.
Kimpton's success as the #1 boutique hotel company in the United States started with the implementation of the most advanced and reliable converged infrastructure system - VCE Vblock®. Modernizing the data center enabled this top hotel chain to spend less time focusing on managing and supporting infrastructure, and more time serving its ecosystem.
Some of the benefits Kimpton achieved since the deployment of EMC Converged Infrastructure from VCE included a 25 percent
reduction in operating expenses by moving to Vblock Systems, compared with an expected savings of only 10 percent. Kimpton can also stand up virtual machines (VMs) in minutes to capitalize on business opportunities, compared to days or weeks with the old infrastructure.

Data center refresh cycles and new initiatives tied to business growth and revenue opportunities are leading more organizations to deploy integrated systems, including both converged and hyper-converged infrastructures. IT leaders can see the potential benefits of converged, integrated systems but as applications increase in complexity, virtual workloads grow, and resource demands expand, managing these applications becomes a critical and often stubborn challenge.
In this paper, Stratecast discusses the technologies that are disrupting how business is conducted— and how they impact and are impacted by your data center infrastructure. We define the ideal IT environment, and present ways to achieve it with flexible, composable infrastructure.
