The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.

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

Today's technology is getting more and more complex, and it's moving from the lab to homes and offices faster than ever. Increasing competition, expanding markets, and a growing expectation for seamlessness mean IoT and SaaS companies alike are looking for a thorough but fast-paced means to validate the quality of their products and releases.
This e-book gives a straight-forward introduction to Customer Validation -- the modern framework for beta testing. It anchors the four key components of traditional beta (people, products, environment, and time frame) around the needs of present-day product development. This includes: establishing the building blocks for thoroughly testing interoperability, creating accurate user scenarios, carving out channels for direct customer interaction, and identifying solutions that will delight your audience.
"Today, IT’s customers are more mobile and global than ever before and as such expect their applications and data to be available 24x7. Interruptions, whether planned or unplanned, can have a major impact to the bottom line of the business.
ESG Lab tested the ability of clustered Data ONTAP to provide continuous application availability and evaluated performance for both SAN and NAS configurations while running an Oracle OLTP workload. Check out this report to see the results."
This report presents the results of ESG Lab’s validation testing of the McAfee Next Generation Firewall. Integrating application control, intrusion detection, and evasion prevention, the product is designed to provide next generation firewall services, leveraging a unified software core to enable the deployment of multiple security services when and where they are needed.
This document makes recommendations for the design, optimization and scaling of VMware Horizon Workspace and Horizon View deployments on Nutanix. It shows the scalability of the Nutanix Complete Cluster and provides detailed performance and configuration information on the scale-out capabilities of the cluster when leveraged for Horizon deployments.
Extensive testing has been performed in collaboration with VMware to simulate real real-world workload and conditions of operating a Horizon Workspace environment. Sizing and recommendations have been made after multiple testing iterations and joint validation.
The solution and testing provided in this document was completed with VMware Horizon Workspace deployed on VMware vSphere on the Nutanix Complete Cluster.
Are you feeling the pressure to meet FDA guidelines on Quality by Design (QbD) principals for Process Validation?
Existing manufacturing, LIMS, ERP and document management tools are lacking integration and on demand view of your processes. They have hidden costs, risks and create delays to scalable product manufacturing and revenue.
Since the FDA is demanding scientific arguments to support process and product development activies and a lifecyle approach, consider the value of a purpose built app for Process Validation.
This new class of APP will bring your products to market faster and lower the risk of costly delays.

Office 365, Salesforce, and other cloud apps deliver a boost in employee productivity, but this benefit comes at a price. Once data moves outside an enterprise, security teams lose visibility and control into how it’s accessed and used.
There is also the risk of unsanctioned apps or Shadow IT – the cloud apps setup and managed outside of IT that they have no visibility of; all this leaves an organization having to manage up to 1,000 cloud apps*. Deploying a CASB solution can help you discover and assess risk from unsanctioned cloud apps and control sanctioned cloud app use.
Through a hands-on evaluation, ESG discovered that Forcepoint CASB:
Reduces threat response times
Grants visibility and context into user activity
Controls user access to cloud apps from different locations/devices
