What to look for in a Data Center Partner

Make the Most of Cloud and Virtualization Innovations

by Kevin O'Connor | 12.30.14

Every organization is searching for ways to reduce the costs and complexity of running a data center. Nearly all IT operations look first to the technology they want to use to address that challenge. Few organizations look first to leverage a partner for that journey. The demands on IT seem to be increasing every day—everyone wants everything on demand, without having to wait for it and in accordance with the governance, risk, and compliance requirements that their organization must adhere to. To address those challenges and to offload some or all of that work, organizations are increasingly turning to the cloud and hyper-virtualized IT infrastructures. VMware has been leading the way in delivering innovative products to solve these challenges—and at PC Connection, our team is working closely with VMware and our clients to realize these outcomes. Read on to learn more about how you can benefit from making the first step of your journey in partnership with
PC Connection.

Cyber Threats

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Has Issued a Cybersecurity Alert for Windows Server 2003

What You Need to Know to Prevent Cyber Threats to Your Organization

by Jonathan Clark | 12.09.14

The US Department of Homeland Security issued a cybersecurity alert this month for Microsoft’s Windows Server 2003, support for which is ending this July 2015. With over 12 million physical servers still running this 11-year-old operating system, organizations will face significant cybersecurity concerns if they continue to run this server OS after July 14, 2015. The impact to both public and private companies running Windows Server 2003 after Microsoft ends support on this product could potentially be astronomical. Are you ready to make the transition? Read on to find out how your business may be affected—and what you can do to prepare.

What Do I Do with My Azure Cloud Anyway?

Practical Strategies to Unlock Performance Gains and Scalability

by Kevin O'Connor | 12.02.14

Every day, another PC Connection customer comes to us and asks how to leverage the cloud for one of their workloads. Our cloud team regularly works with organizations that are looking for a hybrid cloud solution to help them meet growing capacity requirements—often in an environment that’s already reached its maximum capacity. Outgrown, over-taxed data centers (and, in some cases, computer closets) have many IT professionals listening closely to what our experts are doing with Microsoft Azure and the cloud. Check out what all the excitement is about.

OMG 2003! So Much Noise

Let’s breathe and focus on what’s next

by Lane Shelton | 09.29.14

There’s a lot of Windows Server 2003 out there, we get it. We see it first-hand working with customers doing deep-core licensing analysis because we have to know where all the VMs, clusters, and servers are to determine the best ways to pay for it all. We’ve all read the statistics, and our work with customers confirms it – Windows Server 2003 is still a workhorse, even in today’s modern datacenters. The risks are obvious – just read any daily news digest to find another story about a major security breach. Breaches involve data and the data lives in datacenters. So when Microsoft pulls the plug on W2003 Server in July of 2015, some of that data is going to be connected to unsupported server infrastructure.

Extending your IT Service Delivery to leverage cloud computing shouldn’t be a one-way street into unfamiliar territory. By adopting a common platform that spans both private and public cloud environments, clients can dynamically scale their IT infrastructure without changing the way they run it.
