Computer-based, network fax servers offer a high quality, low maintenance enterprise fax solution, well-suited for organizations involved in fax-intensive industries. From first-rate administration and development tools to comprehensive integration with existing network resources, fax servers can accelerate document processing and turnaround time while reducing communication costs.
Employees are increasingly using bring-your-own devices (BYOD) to work and accessing corporate IT resources from home. Until now, management of BYOD within IT was piecemeal, with most organizations cob¬bling together solutions that included mobile device management software, unified access suites, security, and hardware. Read this technology brief to learn how Windows Server 2012 R2 takes the guesswork and integration out of BYOD security and administration, providing one point of control and management for IT organizations.
Server virtualization empowers businesses to lower hardware spending, simplify administration and boost availability. For IT and facilities managers, however, it introduces challenges and opportunities.
Server virtualization empowers businesses with significant advantages that include reduced hardware expenses, simplified administration and heightened availability. As a result, nearly 80 percent of server workloads supported by x86 hardware are now running on virtual machines, according to Gartner estimates. However, despite its widespread adoption and benefits, the technology is not without its challenges.
Fax servers promise easier administration and cheaper faxing but most deployments fail to meet their goals because of unexpected, ongoing costs and unpredictable capacity needs. This paper offers information on why outsourced fax services eliminate the time, effort and cost issues associated with fax servers, but retain all of the same functionality.

Flash-Storage dringt immer mehr in die Mainstream-Datenverarbeitung vor. Dadurch
verstehen die Unternehmen zunehmend nicht nur die Performance-Vorteile, sondern auch
die sekundären wirtschaftlichen Vorteile, die mit einer Flash-Implementierung im großen
Maßstab verbunden sind. Dank der Kombination all dieser Vorteile – geringere Latenzen,
höherer Durchsatz und größere Bandbreite, höhere Storage-Dichten, deutlich geringerer
Energie- und Platzbedarf, höhere CPU-Auslastung, geringerer Bedarf an Servern und damit
verbunden geringere Softwarelizenzgebühren, geringere Administrationskosten und eine
größere Zuverlässigkeit auf Einheitenebene – erweist sich die Verwendung von AFAs als
eine wirtschaftlich überzeugende Alternative zu den herkömmlichen Storage -Architekturen,
die ursprünglich für Festplattenlaufwerke (HDDs) konzipiert waren. Während die
Wachstumsraten für Hybrid-Flash-Arrays (HFAs) und für ausschließlich in Verbindung mit
HDDs verwendete Arrays steil nach unten gehen, gehören die
As flash storage has permeated mainstream computing, enterprises are coming to better understand
not only its performance benefits but also the secondary economic benefits of flash deployment at
scale. This combination of benefits — lower latencies, higher throughput and bandwidth, higher
storage densities, much lower energy and floor space consumption, higher CPU utilization, the need
for fewer servers and their associated lower software licensing costs, lower administration costs, and
higher device-level reliability — has made the use of AFAs an economically compelling choice
relative to legacy storage architectures initially developed for use with hard disk drives (HDDs). As
growth rates for hybrid flash arrays (HFAs) and HDD-only arrays fall off precipitously, AFAs are
experiencing one of the highest growth rates in external storage today — a compound annual growth
rate (CAGR) of 26.2% through 2020.

The Middleware Services Group within Information Technology Services (ITS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill needed a comprehensive, dynamic solution for frequent server provisioning requests and, in particular, managed servers. Without such a solution, the likelihood that users would employ outside vendors significantly increased. Use of outside vendors would potentially increase security concerns, present additional costs, and further complicate system administration. Moving to a fully-interoperable Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, built on OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat, has allowed the middleware services team to deliver a flexible development and hosting environment that has fostered innovation and increased peace of mind.
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.
"There are many reasons why now is the right time to make the move to Microsoft Exchange Server 2010,including a host of administration and security improvements. However, as with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Exchange 2010 requires SSL certificates to ensure the security of all connections to the email server. This guide from Thawte is designed to take the guesswork out of implementing SSL for Exchange 2010, making it easier than ever to get the SSL certificate you need for a successful and secure Exchange implementation, and to take advantage of powerful capabilities such as Subject Alternative Names (SANs)."
