Some Questions to Ask as You Take Stock of Your Infrastructure

by Dave Olivier | 01.19.15

On July 14, 2015, Microsoft will stop releasing critical patches for Windows Server 2003. Running unsupported software presents significant risks and complications for your business that will only increase in severity as time goes on.

by James Nagurney | 12.29.14

This month I want to highlight a coming event that some in the industry are calling “SQL-mageddon”. (This specialist tried to suggest “SQL-nado”, but—alas—it did not catch on.) A lot of SQL Server EAs are going to be for renewal soon, and that means you’ll want to take stock of your SQL licensing and compliance. What does this really mean for your organization?

Holistic Infrastructure Management? The Future Is Here.

by Josh Feinberg | 12.22.14

Businesses are always on the lookout for ways to increase efficiency and decrease costs. Anyone who has worked in IT knows that pretty well. Wasn’t it “do more with less” that became the motto during tight times? But, on the bright side, the economic downturn did lead to a revolution in IT energy efficiency. Nowadays a revolution of a different type is taking shape—one of operational efficiency as a way to streamline the bottom line in the data center.
