The software-defined data center (SDDC) holds tremendous promise for enterprise IT. Within the SDDC, the benefits of server virtualization are extended to storage and networking, so the entire infrastructure can be abstracted and centrally managed under a unified platform. IT teams are able to leverage unprecedented levels of virtualization, orchestration, and automation to achieve the services-based delivery model that enables true digital transformation.

The less you hear about your building’s network, the better.
Enterprise networks rarely make the news unless the news is bad—and an unplanned outage is about as bad as it gets. In 2017, a tech’s typo at one of the world’s largest cloud services providers took a large swath of servers offline for four agonizing hours. According to one estimate, it cost S&P 500 companies $150 million—and U.S. financial-service companies $160 million—in lost revenue.
Of course, the financial hit is just one aspect of an outage. The true cost also includes lost productivity and damage to your reputation. As our reliance on ITC infrastructure increases, the cost of an unplanned outage will only go up.
The ongoing struggle to prevent hackers from breaching assets and malware from gaining a foothold requires a vulnerability management strategy that begins with a comprehensive measurement of security risk. Organizations must examine the entire IT stack, including the operating system, network, applications, and databases. These new technologies include dynamic, virtualized environments and services outside traditional physical IT infrastructures, such as virtualized, cloud-based services and social networking.
HP Networking is a leading provider of converged infrastructure solutions, including networking. With its recently enhanced core and data center portfolio, HP has provided another proof point of its commitment to offering enterprise-class networking solutions. By bringing this new broader networking portfolio to market through HP's direct and indirect sales channels and combining it with HP service offerings, HP Networking has further strengthened its position as a global contender and provider to enterprises and major verticals.

In this Solution Profile, we will concentrate on the importance of optimizing data protection for evolving virtual networks, and on working with a trusted partner. Virtualization technology works across all sizes of business to reduce costs, control management overhead, and increase flexibility. However, virtualization also requires that companies adapt their traditional backup and data protection practices to suit the rapidly changing virtualization infrastructure.
More agile and mobile ways of working need more agile and flexible networks. Wave 2 Wi-Fi, powered by ALE, delivers the capabilities needed to create future-ready
Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess® Stellar WLAN is optimized for Wave 2 infrastructures, with a distributed intelligence architecture, simplified management and support.
As the Internet evolves, users become more and more savvy about what they want from the experience. Web sites are updated daily when they used to change monthly, and social networking sites such as Facebook and Myspace are checked more often than e-mail. Users know what they want and where to get it.

Email, calendaring, collaboration, and mobility solutions are moving from corporate data centers to service provider networks. Service providers can realize far greater economies of scale than most businesses and deliver higher levels of service to more users at a lower cost; in fact, the fewer the users, the higher cost for each. Concentric Hosted Exchange is a fast, reliable and affordable solution for email, calendaring, collaboration, and mobility based on Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Microsoft Outlook® 2007. Concentric Hosted Exchange provides all of the benefits of Microsoft Exchange and Outlook 2007 without the up-front infrastructure costs or ongoing overhead.
Public institutions—particularly government and higher education—need cost-efficient, flexible computing and storage solutions just as much if not more than corporations do. The time for virtualization is now.
In this paper, we highlight the features necessary to move beyond server virtualization by leveraging key integration capabilities between IT components, with a particular focus on the role that storage plays in the evolution of the data center.
GigaOM’s research analyst Mark Leary and Silver Peak’s virtualization and cloud expert, Vivian Xu, discuss the benefits of a SDN (Software-Defined Network). See how industry leaders are leveraging SDN principles to that overcome the challenges of moving data across distance and create more flexibility.

In this world of always-on services, the systems that support them must be designed to be both highly available and resilient. Today, many IT leaders are looking for their applications and infrastructure to be covered by the following:
• Defined SLA¹s for workloads and applications
• Mapped failure points and impact of these on the business
• Regularly measure application and Infrastructure health
Access this white paper to discover your resiliency, and learn how to create a resilient architecture on Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
This white paper will outline possible mobile device security threats and review how IT can effectively manage and secure a fleet of devices, whether they are personally owned or corporate owned. By following the strategies outlined in this paper, IT managers will learn what the greatest security risks are for mobile devices and how to effectively protect end users, their devices, and the network infrastructure from attack, harm, or lost data.

While network owners are migrating to 40G & 100G infrastructures, most tools available today cannot ingest high-speed traffic. They lack both the physical interfaces and processing power to do so.
The Sydney Opera House is one of the world’s busiest performing arts centers and Australia’s number one tourist destination. Each year, it attracts more than 8.2 million visitors on site and stages more than 2,000 performances attended by over 1.5 million people.
Since opening its doors in 1973, the Opera House has become the symbol of modern Australia and the country’s premier tourist destination, with an iconic national-identity value that Deloitte Access Economics has estimated at $4.6 billion.
On the Opera House’s 40th anniversary, it embarked on a Decade of Renewal, a series of projects to prepare the Opera House for future generations of artists, audiences, and visitors. Because renewal isn’t just about the building and the arts; it’s also about renewing technology and systems. This enabled the Opera House to engage VMtech and BlackBerry Cylance to modernize its IT server and network infrastructure, as well as information management, privacy, and cybersecurity.
