The bar for success is rising in higher education. University leaders and IT administrators are aware of the compelling benefits of digital transformation overall—and artificial intelligence (AI) in particular. AI can amplify human capabilities by using machine learning, or deep learning, to convert the fast-growing and plentiful sources of data about all aspects of a university into actionable insights that drive better decisions. But when planning a transformational strategy, these leaders must prioritize operational continuity. It’s critical to protect the everyday activities of learning, research, and administration that rely on the IT infrastructure to consistently deliver data to its applications.
Few companies can afford operational disruption, yet IT budgets remain flat and can’t encompass the growing need for additional
resiliency measures to protect critical-business applications. The recovery-as-a-service offering from VMware, VMware vCloud® Air™ Disaster Recovery, helps you fulfill the need to implement or supplement your organization’s continuity plans while addressing
budget, time, and resources constraints. It provides simplified replication and recovery based on the VMware vSphere® platform.
For a successful setup of your disaster recovery service, keep in mind the following tips when getting started.
The recent release of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study on data center energy efficiency is adding fuel to the fire in the research and development of new ways to reduce energy use in centers. The findings, summarized on the EPA website, are staggering: Data centers consumed about 60 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2006, roughly 1.5 percent of total US electricity consumption -Energy consumption of servers and data centers has doubled in the past five years and is expected to almost double again in the next five years to more than 100 billion kWh, costing about $7.4 billion annually.
This comprehensive white paper applies automation and ITIL best practices to the data center and reviews current industry trends, server automation energy usage issues and a variety of optimization strategies for data center improvement. The effects of virtualization are explored in-depth. Includes detailed sections on increasing operational efficiency using workflow analysis, automating and optimizing server change management, reducing infrastructure complexity and developing security, disaster recovery and business continuity procedures. Step by step instructions for developing metrics and a business case to justify data center and server automation are included.
It only takes a few hours downtime to cripple your organization. Business partners and customers rely on IT services such as email and database applications, making operational continuity critical. Find out how you can be prepared: Building Higher IT Business Continuity in the Face of Disaster.

Which questions have you overlooked and why do the answers matter?
According to Gartner, “OT SRM (security and risk management) leaders must ask the right questions during the technology procurement process to achieve long-term success in their security investments.” Further, Gartner states, “Translating IT security practices and copying IT security technology will not result in a secure operational technology (OT) environment.”
By reading “7 Questions SRM Leaders Aren't Asking OT Security Providers,” you’ll learn which questions to ask, why they matter, and be armed with follow-up guidance to make smarter decisions. Questions covered include:
- Does the Solution Provide Asset Discovery to Enable Operational Continuity and System Integrity?
- Does the Solution Detect and Alert on Known Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures?
- Does Your Solution Provide IT Support in Addition to OT?
- Does Your Solution Support Secure IT/OT Alignment?
