"Principled Technologies executed four typical deployment and management scenarios using both HPE Synergy and Cisco UCS.
They found that HPE Synergy saved 71.5 minutes and 86 steps, and used four fewer tools compared to Cisco UCS. In a hypothetical 200-node datacenter, that’s a total of 9 work weeks, or just over 2 months’ time savings on routine tasks."
As the shift into a digital economy continues to accelerate, companies must out-innovate, outthink, and outpace their competition. Businesses must embrace change and transform to become the disruptors in their industries rather than wait to be disrupted by their competitors.
In the face of this pressure to evolve, organizations need to transform IT to reduce both the capital and operational costs of legacy IT. They must offload repeatable and time-intensive manual tasks like backup, disaster recovery, and service deployment to software and policy-driven automation.
"Now there’s an innovative new way to move enterprise applications
to the public cloud while actually reducing risks and
trade?offs. It’s called multicloud storage, and it’s an insanely
simple, reliable, secure way to deploy your enterprise apps
in the cloud and also move them between clouds and on?
premises infrastructure, with no vendor lock?in. Multicloud
storage allows you to simplify your infrastructure, meet your
service?level agreements, and save a bundle."
As organizational structures get flatter, opportunities for meaningful global collaboration are increasing. However, without the right tools in place, those opportunities will go to waste.

As flash storage has permeated mainstream computing, enterprises are coming to better understand
not only its performance benefits but also the secondary economic benefits of flash deployment at
scale. This combination of benefits — lower latencies, higher throughput and bandwidth, higher
storage densities, much lower energy and floor space consumption, higher CPU utilization, the need
for fewer servers and their associated lower software licensing costs, lower administration costs, and
higher device-level reliability — has made the use of AFAs an economically compelling choice
relative to legacy storage architectures initially developed for use with hard disk drives (HDDs). As
growth rates for hybrid flash arrays (HFAs) and HDD-only arrays fall off precipitously, AFAs are
experiencing one of the highest growth rates in external storage today — a compound annual growth
rate (CAGR) of 26.2% through 2020.
Digital transformation has pioneered an ever-evolving landscape in the omnichannel retail experience. To efficiently meet consumer demands, retailers consider a fully immersive omnichannel customer experience as integral to their engagement strategy.
With increasingly varied technologies such as NFC-based payments, digital signage with rich-media experiences, wireless technologies and IoT technologies—present great opportunities and complexities.
New technologies are often being rolled out without a centrally managed approach leading to siloed solution landscape, making deployment difficult. Uncover the path to simplify and automate, where the Reliant Platform delivered performance, scalability, reliability, security, and inter-operability Reliant needs for retail applications.

Microsoft Azure is a public cloud platform featuring powerful on-demand infrastructure and solutions for building and deploying applications workloads as well as a wide variety of IT and application services. You can use Azure as a public cloud provider and as a hybrid extension to existing on-premises infrastructure. Organizations that use Microsoft solutions on-premises are able to extend their infrastructure and operational processes to Azure.
With the growing popularity of Azure, today’s systems administrators need to acquire and strengthen their skills on this fast-growing public cloud platform. In this guide we explore the Azure public cloud platform with a focus on the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) features. We cover general architectural features of the Azure cloud including geographic regions, availability zones, and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) attached to the core Azure IaaS infrastructure.

When a government organization deploys lean workforce management practices, it affects their largest operational expense: the workforce. As the public sector moves to reinvent itself, workforce management systems and adopting lean labor practices are perhaps two of the most immediate and high-impact mechanisms. Lean practices help government organizations control labor costs and allow them to reallocate those savings into preserving critical programs, services, and jobs ... which is the very essence of the public sector mission.

At a projected market of over $4B by 2010 (Goldman Sachs), virtualizationhas firmly established itself as one of the most importanttrends in Information Technology. Virtualization is expectedto have a broad influence on the way IT manages infrastructure.Major areas of impact include capital expenditure and ongoingcosts, application deployment, green computing, and storage.
Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
Virtualization continues to grow at 20 percent or more per year, but it is not expected to overtake existing physical architectures at least through 2010. This white paper examines the unique challenges of virtualization and offers tips for its successful management alongside IT's physical deployments.
