The need for reliable hardware that can maintain continuous uptime 24/7 is even more important in a virtual infrastructure. If you are planning to use virtualization to implement business continuity or disaster recovery, ensuring you have the most reliable hardware is essential.
Faced with a growing number of business-critical applications and services to support, SMBs and enterprises with remote environments are experiencing a real need for high availability. This paper discusses an easy-to-use, affordable high-availability and virtualization solution using standard x86 servers.
Cloud computing allows companies to use IT resources as a service, taking advantage of shared applications, processing and storage managed within the cloud - either inside a private cloud at an internal data center, or in an external cloud at a service provider. Greater robustness of the virtualized servers supporting this new IT model will ensure a resilient cloud infrastructure capable of delivering "on-demand" access to users.

Connections are great. Having a network to connect to is even better. Humans have been connecting, in one form or another, throughout history. Our cities were born from the drive to move closer to each other so that we might connect. And while the need to connect hasn’t changed, the way we do it definitely has. Nowhere is this evolution more apparent than in business. In today’s landscape, business is more virtual, geographically dispersed and mobile than ever, with companies building new data centers and clustering servers in separate locations.
The challenge is that companies vary hugely in scale, scope and direction. Many are doing things not even imagined two decades ago, yet all of them rely on the ability to connect, manage and distribute large stores of data. The next wave of innovation relies on the ability to do this dynamically.

Virtualization is moving to the mainstream and may soon be overtaking non-virtualized environments as a method for deploying applications. Does this broad adoption of virtualization, though, make network security easier or more difficult to achieve? While responses to this question are still highly varied, one thing is certain: most companies still have no clear and definite security policy for their virtual environments.
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.
Virtualization reduces the number of physical servers IT needs to provision and maintain, but it also transforms the data protection paradigm. Now businesses can recover from failures in minutes, not hours, with unprecedented affordability.
EMC backup and recovery solutions for VMware combine industry-leading deduplication storage and software to help you fully realize the benefits of virtualization. VMware servers consolidate production workloads well, but backups create bottlenecks that tax network and storage resources.

Virtualization has without doubt enabled IT organizations to obtain maximum efficiency from their physical hardware, but virtualization has also increased the complexity these organizations have to manage, and that includes data protection. This paper discusses some of the hidden complexities virtualization introduces to backup and recovery requirements, and the challenges created when backup involves a combination of physical servers and virtual machines. It also discusses ways that backup and recovery processes can be simplified by avoiding point solutions.

Many small and midsized businesses are at a crossroads when it comes to selecting the right backup solution to protect their environments. Many now have a mix of physical and virtual servers to protect and when they try to use their existing backup software to protect it or, alternatively, search for new backup software that better matches their new infrastructure demands they often encounter several issues.
