Learn the recommendations to meet the following challenges:
Financial services firms are deploying private clouds and PaaS to improve IT manageability and to empower developers, but still need to manage and monitor legacy environments and third party applications
Many firms are adopting PaaS to manage microservices and break down legacy applications into discrete components, resulting in many more endpoints to make discoverable, secure, connect, manage and monitor
Applications and container technologies deployed on the PaaS may lack the ability to generate “machine data”--detailed information on memory utilization, system resources, endpoint analysis and other critical monitoring statistics
Flytoget AS, a publicly owned transportation company in Norway, operates the airport express train between Oslo Airport and the city center. Each year, the company transports millions of passengers on its trains. To succeed in an increasingly competitive landscape, Flytoget decided to modernize its IT infrastructure with a cloud-based approach. Flytoget deployed Red Hat JBoss Fuse with 3scale API Management Platform to create a highly adaptable and reliable foundation for its modernization efforts. As a result, the company has achieved intelligent, integrated transportation services that will help it retain its market-leading role.
As more hardware, devices, apps, and tools are deployed to support growth, the infrastructure becomes increasingly difficult to integrate, manage and support. The concept of converged infrastructure was seen as the answer to this problem. However, when bringing together disparate components not deeply integrated or designed to work together, this "solution" sapped efficiency and added more complexity. Plus, there was no convenient public cloud option. Explore how Oracle Engineered Systems are designed to overcome the limitations of traditional converged infrastructure solutions.

Cloud computing has ushered in a golden era for software companies. The cloud’s low barrier to entry allows
creativity to flourish, especially for software developers who are creating applications directly on cloud-based
infrastructure. Cloud-based infrastructure enables developers to do what they love: solve business problems and
bring innovative new ideas to life, using their choice of tools. In a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, applications
can easily be deployed to a cloud service, and delivered to clients who appreciate the ease of access and low cost.
The cloud model relieves the developer and the enterprise IT professional from the burden of managing or
maintaining capital-intense infrastructure.
But the cloud’s low barrier to entry also allows competing software providers to enter the market every day,
from every sector. Independent software vendors, or ISVs, are pressured by increased competition to deliver
their applications faster, with greater functionality and ease of

Kevin Dowlin and his IT team deployed state-of-the-art infrastructure and classroom technologies for Rutgers Business School users, with help from IaaS and Microsoft Azure.
By leveraging cloud services, the burgeoning school can deliver rapid virtualization and easy single sign-on without cutting corners.
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has conducted extensive research investigating the integration and management challenges created by the convergence of on-premise and public Cloud hosted applications. Research conducted in mid-2012 uncovered some compelling statistics about the role of Cloud integration in today's companies:
Nearly 50% of the companies surveyed have already deployed tiered transactions spanning public Cloud and on-premise computing environments (one form of "hybrid Cloud")
Approximately 35% have integrated (or are in the process of integrating) multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
As one IT professional put it, "Everything is connected to everything." Because of this fact, any discussionof public Cloud as a standalone technology is outmoded. Few modern on-premise applications exist as"silos," and the same is true of Cloud-delivered applications.

The role and purpose of IT in an organization is undergoing significant change, driven by the need for businesses to become more agile and have greater control over cost levers when using technology. This transformation of IT involves many different aspects, not all of which are technology-related, but the one thing they all share is that IT modernization is about making changes to meet the current and future demands of business. This report provides a side-by-side comparison of leading virtualization and cloud management solutions, looking at IT modernization from a data center infrastructure perspective, with the findings delivered as the Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM). It considers the significance of management in the virtualization and cloud environments and how this influences the way in which technology is deployed, used, and controlled.

AWS is the most widely deployed public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solution in the world and is a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for IaaS (see "Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service"). AWS offers a large number of built-in security capabilities (see Note 1), and questions on the proper practices for securing workloads in AWS are increasing.1
AWS is a not a "consumer grade" IaaS cloud. It is a market leader, with a portfolio of security capabilities and security ecosystem partners unmatched by other IaaS providers. However, simply moving existing workloads to AWS without rethinking security tools, processes and system management will result in workloads that are less secure than they were when located within enterprise data centers. Conversely, a properly managed and secured workload in AWS will be at least as — and, in most cases, more — secure than in an enterprise data center.

Securing your email is a complex process that takes time and uses resources that can be better deployed elsewhere in your business. Moving on-premise email security into the cloud not only saves time and money, but also reduces risk and takes advantages of economies of scale to deliver an effective, dedicated security platform that unshackles users and releases the potential of your mail.

Email has become something of a critical utility, much like the electricity that powers our offices: it must be available 24 hours a day, it must provide reliable performance, and its cost must be reasonable. However, unlike electrical systems (at least from the user’s perspective), email systems require significant amounts of labor to manage well. Email systems must periodically be upgraded. New hardware must be introduced as organizations migrate to new systems. Security must be maintained and upgraded to protect the system from intrusions. Additional hardware must be deployed to protect against outages that could seriously harm user productivity. Plus, unexpected events, such as spam storms or natural disasters can drive up costs substantially in ways that were not anticipated.
Noted author Jim Metzler reports on the emergence of vWOCs, or virtual WAN Optimization Controllers. From the data center to the branch, virtualization is enabling a revolution in how WAN optimization is acquired and deployed. Whether combined with traditional physical appliances or fully virtualized, the new choices make universal network optimization a reality.
Cloud architectures. Remote access to big data. Application performance in an increasingly networked world. A renewed focus on DR/BC based on instant replication between multiple data centers. All are driving a need for more flexible WAN optimization that can be cost effectively deployed across both private and public networks.
Limited bandwidth, long distances and poor network quality prohibit cost reductions for today's critical IT initiatives. Your IT organization needs WAN optimization that can be deployed anywhere, on any platform, and for the lowest cost. See how the new Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers can help.
