This white paper examines the problems enterprises currently face with their NT 4 server deployments, outlines the requirements that any effective solution must satisfy, and explains how Solidcore can help enterprises significantly lower the cost of supporting legacy NT 4 deployments.
With increasing demands being made on enterprise IT
departments to keep up with the accelerating pace of business,
infrastructure has to enable more dynamic, eficient application
and IT service delivery. Unfortunately, more ofen than not, IT
provisioning can be a bottleneck. Traditional means are ofen
ineficient. When developers plan their projects and estimate the
server, networking, and storage resources they need, they ofen
overestimate and pad their requests to ensure what actually
gets provisioned is adequate. The formal request comes via an IT
ticket, and then the waiting begins. Days, possibly weeks go by
before they get the resources they need, and all the while they’re
unable to iterate on and evolve core business oferings.
Business happens at the speed of “right now” across departmental, physical, geographical and organizational lines. Secure, anywhere, anytime access to the most up-to-minute business content ensures that employees, partners and customers can do business faster. Neither remote VPN access nor cloud-only sharing solutions provide the flexibility, security, and universal access required to support today’s business. What’s needed is a solution that offers the benefits of cloud-based file access along with the control and
manageability of local file systems.

With an estimated 500,000 'Internet of Things' devices using default security credentials it's little wonder that the recent Mirai botnet's DDoS attack was able to cause such widespread disruption. But it isn't just the average home-user that's at risk. Organizations like yours are being targeted with bespoke malware in order to compromise your network and add your servers and devices to malicious botnets.
This paper explains why these attacks are so successful, how a typical infection takes place and what security systems your organization should have in place to defend against botnet proliferation.
Ransomware threats like Cryptowall, TeslaCrypt, and Locky are on the rise, targeting organizations of all sizes. This paper explains how these attacks work, and why a large number of new infections continue to surface despite existing protective measures. It also provides practical short- and long-term steps that organizations should take to protect against them.
This paper will discuss the shortcomings of some established filtering methods and outline how SPAMfighter's community-based approach to filtering can result in it performing much better than competing products and delivering a far superior return on investment.
IT organizations using machine data platforms like Splunk recognize the importance of consolidating disparate data types for top-down visibility, and to quickly respond to critical business needs. Machine data is often underused and undervalued, and is particularly useful when managing infrastructure data coming from AWS, sensors and server logs.

One of the biggest challenges IT ops teams face is the lack of visibility across its infrastructure — physical, virtual and in the cloud. Making things even more complex, any infrastructure monitoring solution needs to not only meet the IT team’s needs, but also the needs of other stakeholders including line of business (LOB) owners and application developers.
For companies already using a monitoring platform like Splunk, monitoring blindspots arise from the need to prioritize across multiple departments. This report outlines a four-step approach for an effective IT operations monitoring (ITOM) strategy.

Savvy IT professionals are finding that blade servers are less expensive than traditional rack servers for most new deployments, while also delivering improvements in agility, scalability and manageability.
Blade servers can yield significant cost efficiencies over rack servers — while taking up a smaller footprint, consuming less power and providing significant advantages in terms of manageability, scalability and flexibility.
HP's Converged Infrastructure incorporates tools that make remote support and management efficient and effective. HP Insight Control, for example, helps reduce server deployment time from four hours to just 20 minutes, a 12-fold decrease in deployment time.
This IDC research with small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and branch offices shows that well-targeted technology upgrades, coupled with a rigorous program to standardize and improve IT practices at a company's remote locations and headquarters, can deliver substantial business value and could reduce total annual IT costs in the branches by over 30%.
