HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage arrays are rapidly being adopted into many IT data centers. With the adoption of the array comes the need to support a non-disruptive method (supported by OS) to import data from aging architectures to new HP 3PAR StoreServ arrays. There is an increasing demand to support the migration from non-HP standard storage arrays to HP 3PAR StoreServ arrays as part of the migrations. In the past, HP has supported migrations from HP 3PAR to HP 3PAR using HP 3PAR Peer Motion technology and EVA to HP 3PAR using HP 3PAR Online Import as part of the federated storage movement. HP is now announcing the ability to migrate data from EMC arrays to HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage.

Learn how automatic backup delivers guaranteed business data
protection and recovery—no matter the threat.
When ransomware hits, the average small business experiences two full days of downtime. One-third of businesses lose revenue and all experience brand and loyalty damage that’s harder to quantify. To stop the bleeding, most small businesses end up paying at least $2,500 to get their data back. But paying the ransom doesn’t guarantee anything. Plenty of businesses have fully complied with the ransom demands, only to have the ransomer increase the ransom request—or simply take off with the ransom and the data.
In their search for top-of-the-class uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) for their demanding data center environment, WUSD wanted a system that would keep everything backed up with enough runtime for a graceful shutdown, but was also easily scalable. Equally important, the district wanted seamless integration with their virtual environment.
Find out how the Eaton 9390 UPS and the Eaton Intelligent Power Software (IPS) Suite made the grade.
In the era of individual-centered economy, customers are demanding faster, more personalized services.

Every data center IT manager must constantly deal with certain practical constraints such as time, complexity, reliability, maintainability, space, compatibility, and money. The challenge is that business application demands on computing technology often don’t cooperate with these constraints.
A day is lost due to a software incompatibility introduced during an upgrade, hours are lost tracing cables to see where they go, money is spent replacing an unexpected hardware failure, and so on. Day in and day out, these sorts of interruptions burden data center productivity.
Sometimes, it’s possible to temporarily improve the situation by upgrading to newer technology. Faster network bandwidth and storage media can reduce the time it takes to make backups. Faster processors — with multiple cores and larger memory address space — make it possible to practically manage virtual machines.
"Cloud computing, also known as 'IT as a Service', is predicated on delivering IT services on demand, an idea that has support from business leaders as a way to better align IT with business operations. Cloud computing has two key requirements: virtualized applications and seamless support and integration between the server, networking, storage and hypervisor components.
In this paper, we explore these concepts and highlight the critical features necessary to move beyond server virtualization by leveraging key integration capabilities between IT components-with a particular focus on the important role that storage plays in the evolution of the datacenter architecture."
It’s hard to grow your business if you can’t see what’s coming next. What will the demand be for a specific product or service and how should you adjust production? What revenue can be expected and from which channels? Where are the best areas to expand your business? Predictive analytics can provide the answers executives, analysts and business managers need to reduce costs, operate more efficiently and increase the bottom line.
Join IBM SPSS and guest Mark Lack, Manager of Strategy Analytics and Business Intelligence with industrial products company Mueller Inc. for a look at how to decrease costs and improve your business’ profitability with predictive analytics. You’ll learn how Mueller extends the value of its Big Data environment by applying predictive techniques to accurately forecast sales, prevent fraud and reduce losses from damaged inventory, saving the company significant time and money.
The demand for new data about customers, customer behaviour, product usage, asset performance, and operational processes is growing rapidly. Almost every industry wants new data. Some examples of this are:
• Financial services organisations want more data to improve risk decisions, for ‘Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance and for a 360 degree view of financial crime.
• Utilities companies want smart meter data to give them deeper understanding of customer and grid usage and to allow them to exploit pricing elasticity. They also want sensor data to monitor grid health, to optimise field service and manage assets.

Data—dynamic, in demand and distributed—is challenging to
secure. But you need to protect sensitive data, whether it’s stored
on-premises, off-site, or in big-data, private- or hybrid-cloud
environments. Protecting sensitive data can take many forms, but
nearly any organization needs to keep its data accessible, protect
data from loss or compromise, and comply with a raft of regulations
and mandates. These can include the Payment Card Industry Data
Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the European Union (EU)
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Even in the cloud, where
you may have less immediate control, you must still control your
sensitive data—and compliance mandates still apply.
"DBAs need help with tackling significant issues, including doing more with fewer resources, quickly responding to upgrade and patch needs, while reducing the time spent on cloning databases. Finally, they need help eliminating the time they spend integrating, testing, and deploying full-stack cloud solutions. How can DBAs reconcile these competing demands?

Risks have intensified as retailers and financial organizations embrace new technologies to meet customer demands for convenience. The rise of mobile and online transactions introduces new risks – and with that, new requirements for fraud mitigation. This paper discusses key steps for fighting back against fraud risk by establishing appropriate and accurate data, analytics and alert management.
Modern data centers have and continue to undergo transformation. Driven by familiar trends, green IT, endpoint growth, externalization, and increased resource requirements, modern data centers support more services, users, and data than ever before. The potential of new risks to the modern data center demands renewed attention to data center security. Data center architects must build in proper security controls, and policies and processes to address and mitigate these new risks.
