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.
Server virtualization has transformed corporate IT -- companies have enjoyed major cost savings and have gained flexibility and efficiency. But this has also led to a proliferation of virtual machines and servers that threaten to overwhelm data movement and storage technologies. In this IDG Tech Dossier, learn how utility storage makes for massive consolidation, flexibility and scalability, so IT departments can reduce storage infrastructure and lower costs while improving their ability to respond to fast-changing needs of business units.
Enterprise Strategy Group shares why client-side deduplication is the best. Dedupe 2.0 leverages intelligence and awareness at the source, backup server, and storage device. Read on to learn what ESG has to say about Dedupe 2.0 and what's in store.
This IDC paper “Business Value of Blade Infrastructures” indicates the considerable cost savings and the improved agility of the IT infrastructure by migrating to an HP BladeSystem environment. In fact, HP BladeSystem cut data costs by 68%. Customers participating in this study were able to pay back their initial investment in just over 7 months, a significant factor given the financial constraints most IT organizations are facing.
In healthcare, bringing new and reliable products to market is essential for staying relevant and competitive. That's why when McKesson needed to transform its development environments, the nation's largest healtchcare IT solutions provider turned to HP CloudSystem Matrix. By moving from a traditional rack-mount server infrastructure to an HP CloudSystem Matrix integrated solution, McKesson saw an 84-fold increase in processing speeds on their development environments (down to 40 mins. from 7 days). They also enjoyed a 42% reduction in physical server count and a 67% decrease in management time. Read this case study to see how your own organization can use an HP CloudSystem Matrix solution to enhance productivity, reduce costs, and drive innovation.

Web Services are emerging as the preeminent method for program-to-program communication across corporate networks as well as the Internet. Securing web Services has been a challenge until recently, as typical Web authentication and authorization techniques employed browser-to-server architectures (not program-to-program). This resulted in user identity ending at the Web Application Server, forcing the Web Services Provider to trust blindly that the Web Services Requester had established identity and trust with the end user.
With the success of single sign-on (SSO) inside the enterprise, users are calling for interoperability outside of the enterprise’s security domain to outsourced services, including business process outsourcing (BPO) and software as a service (SaaS) providers, and trading partners, as well as within the enterprise to affiliates and subsidiaries.
