Infrastructure

Big Data

We’ve all seen the dramatic transformation IT has undergone in recent years— inevitably evolving from a cost center to a strategic business partner.

Momentum for that transformation came from disruptive trends like virtualization, cloud computing, mobility, big data, and social networking. Each catalyzed a change in perception among IT and business leaders: the components of an agile, efficient IT infrastructure were increasingly strategic assets, not cost centers.

Better Safe than Sorry When it Comes to Security

The Old Adage is Still Relevant in the Digital Age

by Salvatore Sparace | 08.21.14

On July 9th The New York Times reported, “Chinese hackers in March were able to compromise the US Government’s network that houses the Office of Personnel Management Database. They appeared to be targeting files on tens of thousands of applicants for security clearances.” The report traveled quickly across the major news outlets with officials unable to comment on the extent of the act.

Should VDI be part of your move?

Benefits include improved security, productivity, cost savings and desktop management

by Eric Bruno | 05.22.14

With the desktop OS in transition, now might be a good time to take another step, to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Better security, compliance, and control are compelling VDI benefits.

According to a CIO.com report from a few years ago over 63 million people could telecommute by 2016. At this point, my sense is that estimate is low. While this level of telecommuting represents potential savings to enterprises (reduced office space and telecommunications costs, plus added worker productivity), combined with the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, it does bring new risks. Security, availability, and reliability are at the top of the list.

BYOD Network of Devices and Applications

BYOD and Your Network

Are You Ready for a Flood of Devices?

by Tim Allen | 04.21.14

Is your network infrastructure ready for a BYOD initiative? If your network was designed and implemented five years ago or more, the answer is, unfortunately, probably not. When your network infrastructure was implemented, your team understood how many individuals would be accessing the network because you were controlling how many devices were handed out. With a BYOD strategy, you’re opening the door to many more devices—and many more applications being used on those devices. If you’re thinking about implementing BYOD at your organization, it’s time for your network strategy to evolve.

Data Center - Cisco Servers

It's Time to Refresh Your Data Center

Take the Modern Approach to Servers with Cisco® and Intel®

by Justin Zuill | 03.28.14

Want to discover the health of your data center infrastructure in a single question? Call someone in IT and ask, “How old is our server?” Seems simple enough, right? But be ready to be asked which server you’re specifically asking about. Applications, storage, email—you may have several assigned to just as many tasks. And that’s part of the problem.
