For the IT personnel responsible for deploying, maintaining and supporting these networked applications, there is an increasing requirement to get the highest performance out of network equipment, while simplifying the complexity that causes excess overhead and unnecessary costs. However, there is hope. Download this white paper to learn how to achieve efficiencies and competitive advantages through affordable, yet feature-rich WAN optimization technologies.
By redirecting traffic away from ISP outages and WAN link bottlenecks, Ecessa, with its PowerLink and ShieldLink family of affordable WAN Optimization Controllers help avoid critical WAN infrastructure problems. Ecessa optimizes WAN infrastructure as defined by 24/7 availability, high-performance, flexible scalability, and secure operations - while streamlining IT costs. PowerLink and ShieldLink simplify the management of network links, and optimize user access to datacenters and remote sites.
To achieve greater productivity, employees at headquarters, telecommuters, business partners and customers must all have unhindered access to critical applications. Any delay in delivering these applications can cause user productivity to suffer and adversely affect business profitability. WAN link controllers are an affordable solution for ensuring the optimum performance, reliable delivery and protection of applications. They optimize network bandwidth and ensure the delivery of critical applications.

In this brief, you'll learn how CA Recovery Management Products, like CA ARCserve Backup and CA XOsoft solutions, can be applied with VMware Infrastructure to help you effectively respond to the challenges and opportunities of business-critical computing.
The AODA currently provides IT support and management for 32 remote offices serving approximately 1,000 end users. In a field dependent upon the highest standards of data integrity, protection and retention, it was critical for the AODA to implement the disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity solutions necessary for fulfillment of its objectives.
Utah State University is nationally and internationally recognized for its intellectual and technological leadership in land, water, space and life enhancement. Providing education for more than 23,000 undergraduate and graduate students, Utah State relies on technology to support its innovative initiatives including campus-wide wireless networking, a recent partnership with Google, and a unified email system.
According to the National Archives and Records Administration, 93 percent of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. Don't let that happen to you, learn more today!
The recent release of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study on data center energy efficiency is adding fuel to the fire in the research and development of new ways to reduce energy use in centers. The findings, summarized on the EPA website, are staggering: Data centers consumed about 60 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2006, roughly 1.5 percent of total US electricity consumption -Energy consumption of servers and data centers has doubled in the past five years and is expected to almost double again in the next five years to more than 100 billion kWh, costing about $7.4 billion annually.
Companies of all sizes realize that near real-time business recovery is no longer a nice-to-have – it is becoming a new corporate must have. Competition, regulations and the 24x7 nature of businesses all push for continual application and data availability under almost any circumstances.
Talent management has become one of the most pressing topics within HR organizations today - and it is no wonder, given the current economic environment and business imperatives.
In this research bulletin, we will outline the approach HR organizations must take to identify, cost-justify, develop and implement the highest impact talent management strategy.
Email is the primary communication system and file transport mechanism used in organizations of all sizes. Email systems generate enormous amounts of content that must be preserved for a variety of reasons, including:
-Compliance with local, state, federal and international statutory requirements
- Electronic discovery requirements and best practices
- Knowledge management applications
- Disaster recovery and business continuity
For small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), the impacts of a disaster can result in loss of or lack of access to data, applications, and work facilities. Those with disaster recovery plans in place fared much better than those without such contingency plans.
Many small and medium-sized businesses do not have adequate network security. Here's how to make sure you do. Now more than ever, you depend on your network for your most important business operations, such as communication, inventory, billing, sales, and trading with partners. Yet up to now, you might have held off on protecting your network, for several reasons.
This comprehensive white paper applies automation and ITIL best practices to the data center and reviews current industry trends, server automation energy usage issues and a variety of optimization strategies for data center improvement. The effects of virtualization are explored in-depth. Includes detailed sections on increasing operational efficiency using workflow analysis, automating and optimizing server change management, reducing infrastructure complexity and developing security, disaster recovery and business continuity procedures. Step by step instructions for developing metrics and a business case to justify data center and server automation are included.
Certainly server virtualization offers an elegant way to minimize planned downtime during routine software and hardware maintenance, or scheduled upgrades. But that addresses only part of the availability story.
The importance of data processing in today’s business environment is increasing and it is clear that business operations must be secured against every possible contingency to provide continuous uptime. Business continuity is not just concerned with IT infrastructure and data processing, it also includes manual and automatic IT systems with the human involvement. This white paper explains how HP StorageWorks XP for Business Continuity Manager (BCM) Software makes sure that all processes within the data-handling procedures are automated in such a way that in the event of a failure or unplanned disruption, business operations can continue with minimal interruption.
