Virtualization platforms are different from physical platforms. The virtualization benefits extend to management and support for tightly integrated backup and recovery solutions. Solutions designed exclusively for virtual infrastructure backup provide a host of key benefits and should be leveraged whenever possible.
Voke conducted a survey of 505 participants from technology and non-technology companies to explore their use of service virtualization and its results. Organizations using service virtualization experienced fewer defects, reduced software cycles, and increased customer satisfaction.
The 2015 Service Virtualization Market Snapshot™ REPORT by Voke Research provides real-world data to help you justify the investment in service virtualization.

TeamQuest Director of Global Services Per Bauer explains how to manage services in relation to servers, storage, network, power and floor space. Understand costing data, incidents, business transaction volumes, and demand forecasts. Watch this short video to learn more about Optimization in a Box and how to quickly improve your ability to optimize business services today.
Just after the turn of the decade researchers are predicting there will be somewhere north of 24 million subscriptions to next generation 5G networking services. Today most of those services are little more than pilot projects. But thanks to emerging network function virtualization (NFV) software running on Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) platforms enabled by Intel most of those 5G services should be in production before the end of the decade.
Come learn how MEC platforms are about to transform every corner of the networking world to not only drive the creation of a vast array of new IT services, but also make networks more agile and responsive than anyone ever thought possible.
Private cloud is one of the critical deployment architectures IT teams are adopting as they transition to a service-centric delivery model. More than 75% of organizations? already use private clouds to lower costs, increase agility and exert greater control over security, data protection and compliance.
The transition to private cloud represents a paradigm shift in how IT is provisioned and data centers are deployed. Virtualization is expanding beyond servers into storage and networking, while software-defined models allow new levels of agility through advanced automation and orchestration.
Developers must deliver high-quality applications while limiting their testing expenses. In this challenging environment, a combination of automated integration testing and test virtualization can enable test teams to improve software quality and keep up with the rate of change.
Applications are evolving at an ever-faster pace. These applications are not discrete islands; they build on a complex, interconnected set of components that includes disparate technologies, developers, deployment topologies and organizations. Developers must deliver high-quality applications while limiting their testing expenses. In this challenging environment, a combination of automated integration testing and test virtualization can enable test teams to improve software quality and keep up with the rate of change. This whitepaper helps address these needs by describing the benefits that can be gained through a proactive and continuous approach to integration testing with IBM® Rational® test automation solutions.

Software Asset Management associated costs have once again risen as a high priority for IT, and rightfully so. This paper offers information on technology that manages software assets cost efficiently, cost effectively in a low risk environment.
For most organizations, consolidation is the starting point and primary initial driver for their virtualization efforts. By enabling the sharing and pooling of resources, virtualization has become a proven, adept and widely adopted technology in allowing organizations of all sizes to achieve some of their most important technology consolidation initiatives.
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.
The end of support date for Windows XP–April 8, 2014 is rapidly approaching, after which the potential for security vulnerabilities will dramatically increase. Companies with lots of Windows XP machines still in use need help upgrading in this compressed timeframe. Lenovo has an answer, as its Image Technology Center (ITC) services along with the Lenovo In-Place Migration (IPM) product can help internal IT staff quickly and successfully migrate from Windows XP to Windows 7 or Windows 8 with a minimum of disruption to users and the organization.
This document is targeted at networking and virtualization architects interested in deploying VMware NSX network virtualization in a multi-hypervisor environment based on the integrated solution from VMware and Juniper.
VMware’s Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) vision leverages core data center virtualization technologies to transform data center economics and business agility through automation and non disruptive deployment that embraces and extends existing compute, network and storage infrastructure investments. NSX is the component providing the networking virtualization pillar of this vision. As a platform, NSX provides partners the capability of integrating their solution and build on the top of the existing functionalities. NSX enables an agile overlay infrastructure for public and private cloud environments leveraging Juniper’s robust and resilient underlay infrastructure that also helps bridge the physical and virtual worlds using the L2 gateway functionality.
No matter your line of business, technology implemented four years ago is likely near its end of life and may be underperforming as more users and more strenuous workloads stretch your resources thin. Adding memory and upgrading processors won't provide the same benefits to your infrastructure as a consolidation and upgrade can. Read this research report to learn how upgrading to Dell's PowerEdge VRTX with Hyper-V virtualization, Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, and Microsoft SQL Server 2014 could reduce costs while delivering better performance than trying to maintain aging hardware and software.
