The cloud, virtualization, and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) help make IT's life easier — and the whole organization more agile — but each of these features also presents serious security challenges. Although there is no one-size-fits-all solution to managing security in the enterprise 2.0 world, the enhanced security features and user-centric offerings in Microsoft Windows Server 2012 make security a much more comfortable proposition for IT. Read this technology brief to learn how Windows Server 2012 helps to mitigate risks and streamline compliance, as well.
When refreshing legacy servers, Brodart took the opportunity to migrate to a virtualization environment. Dell ™ vStart virtualization-ready infrastructure helps the company improve performance, simplify management, and reduce risk.
Many distributed offices are eager to simplify a complex, unwieldy mix of heterogeneous IT equipment. The Dell ™P converges servers, storage, networking and management into an office-optimized chassis the size of a tower server.
This IDC white paper considers the approaching end of extended support for Windows Server 2003 and explores the Windows migration options that are available to customers and the benefits associated with a modernization effort. It also evaluates the risks that customers face if they do not move off of Windows Server 2003 prior to the conclusion of extended support.
Microsoft is discontinuing support for Windows Server 2003 in July 2015, so now is the time to start planning your move and avoid possible server management, performance, security and compliance issues. This paper explores the new features and benefits of Windows Server 2012 R2, as well as key considerations for moving from legacy platforms. You'll also learn how Dell Software can help you prepare for the move.
Read this white paper to see how end-to-end solutions from Dell combine Microsoft Windows Server® 2012 “Cloud Operating System” and a new generation of Microsoft business applications on flexible, scalable, power-efficient, virtualization-ready infrastructure
Read this white paper and learn how:
• Cloud technology bridges the gap between IT and the business, but on-premises cloud deployments often offer a lower TCO than the public cloud.
• Dell enables organizations to create and manage cloud solutions customized to unique needs.
• Organizations have several options for building a cloud infrastructure based on Dell solutions.
• In the realm of cloud computing, Dell differentiates itself through servers, storage, networking, and integration with infrastructure and management tools.
• Implementing a cloud environment requires stakeholder identification, as well as resources and capabilities.
Your migration is also an opportunity for a “data center do-over” that could include virtualization optimization, cloud adoption, Active Directory cleanup, and server and storage updates. After all, the preparation and process for implementing these advances in IT capability are exactly the same as for an OS migration.

Transforming IT to meet the emerging requirements of a rapidly advancing digital economy is a priority for most companies today. Market economies and quickly evolving digital interactions are driving new and increasing demands on IT infrastructure for organizations of all kinds – from small businesses to enterprises to public institutions. IT requirements to support a variety of digital use paradigms (personal devices, IoT, VMs, VDI) are changing quickly, and organizations need to respond in order to be competitive in this evolving digital world.

Download this whitepaper for 4 reasons shorter server resfresh cycles are better for business.
Analyst firm IDC reports that organizations can increase agility, improve efficiency and reduce operational costs by refreshing their servers every three years.
The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.
Die Cloud ist ein Servernetzwerk, das Daten, Software und Services umfasst. Auf Clouddienste wird für gewöhnlich über das Internet, und nicht lokal in einem Rechenzentrum, zugegriffen. Wenn es um Cybersicherheit geht, verlassen sich immer mehr Unternehmen auf die Cloud. Die zwei Hauptgründe: 1. Aufgrund der sich ständig ändernden Bedrohungslandschaft wird immer mehr Umfang, Genauigkeit, Erfahrung und kollektive Intelligenz benötigt. Diese Anforderungen können die meisten Unternehmen intern nicht erfüllen. 2. Lokale Appliances und Unternehmensrechenzentren haben prinzipiell ihre Grenzen, wenn es um Abwehrmechanismen gegen DDoS- (Distributed Denial of Service) und Webangriffe geht.
More than 23 million servers in the world are still running on the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system, making it the most popular engine for serving information and applications globally for over a decade. But, starting in July 2015, Microsoft will no longer provide basic support for it.
Migrating your enterprise to a modern Microsoft® Windows® operating system is a complex process that can strain IT resources. That’s why Dell is focused on helping customers meet the deadline of the decade: On 14 July 2015 support for Windows 2003 will cease. The strategic value to efficient Windows migration is application, hardware and deployment readiness.
Technology is moving fast and your data center needs to keep up so your business can thrive. Migrating to the latest platforms and solutions, such as Windows® Server® 2012 R2, lets you take advantage of its virtualization advancements and tap into the Microsoft cloud OS. Combined with unique innovations featured in Dell server, storage and networking solutions, you can do more than modernize your IT — you can transform it.
In the last few years there have been radical changes in the ways organizations operate and people work. Explosion of data, increased mobile demands, and the globalization of business in general are making 24/7 access to people and information the norm. Sophisticated cyber attacks are requiring robust systems security designed to counter new threats. And velocity is now essential when delivering new IT services.
With support for Windows Server 2003 ending, transitioning to Server 2012 is clearly a must for companies. While migration will be an adjustment for organizations relying on niche applications that are 10 years old, the costs of not upgrading to Server 2012 could prove fatal.
