Your data center struggles with competing requirements from your lines of business and the finance, security and IT departments. While some executives want to lower cost and increase efficiency, others want business growth and responsiveness. But today, most data center teams are just trying to keep up with application service levels, complex workflows, and sprawling infrastructure and support costs.

Today, nearly every datacenter has become heavily virtualized. In fact, according to Gartner as many as 75% of X86 server workloads are already virtualized in the enterprise datacenter. Yet even with the growth rate of virtual machines outpacing the rate of physical servers, industry wide, most virtual environments continue to be protected by backup systems designed for physical servers, not the virtual infrastructure they are used on. Even still, data protection products that are virtualization-focused may deliver additional support for virtual processes, but there are pitfalls in selecting the right approach.
This paper will discuss five common costs that can remain hidden until after a virtualization backup system has been fully deployed.
Codero required a top-notch Tier III data center facility. Furthermore, it needed a data center that could not only deliver disaster recovery services and support the ongoing growth of customer businesses, but do so with competitive rates for power and labor, and low exposure to natural disasters. Find out why they selected Digital Realty.
"Today’s data centers are being asked to do more at less expense and with little or no disruption to company operations. They’re also expected to run 24x7, handle numerous new application deployments and manage explosive data growth. Data storage limitations can make it difficult to meet these stringent demands.
Faced with these challenges, CIOs are discovering that the “rip and replace” disruptive migration method of improving storage capacity and IO performance no longer works. Access this white paper to discover a new version of NetApps storage operating environment. Find out how this software update eliminates many of the problems associated with typical monolithic or legacy storage systems."

Between the proliferation of mobile devices and the ever increasing amount of content on the web, DNS usage has seen a huge increase in recent years. Meanwhile, DNS continues to be a tempting target for attackers, and when they succeed in disrupting DNS, all external data center services are affected. For organizations confronting these growth and security challenges, F5’s new full proxy architecture for DNS provides a complete solution for global, local, and cloud load balancing.
This white paper looks at HP's approach to Data Center Transformation and how it can help enterprise data centers reduce costs, manage risks, and support business growth. Learn about the 4 key factors which should influence your data center transformation strategy. See first hand how HP embarked on a three-year transformation program for its own data centers. This ambitious program involved rationalizing 85 data centers into just six global ones- with tangible and measurable benefits.
This white paper explores the challenges of increasing computing power in resource-constrained physical spaces and data centers experiencing high growth. We also explore how intelligent rack PDUs can meet these challenges and address critical uptime and capacity planning issues.
In no particular order, here are five important strategies we see companies using to overcome the limitations of traditional IT infrastructure and transform their data centers to support innovation and growth.
The emergence of genomics and advanced gene sequencing techniques has made the collection and storage of data a centerpiece of biomedical research. As the data generated in biomedical research becomes richer and richer, having the infrastructure in place to deal with data growth efficiently is going to be a cornerstone of biomedical data management. This white paper examines a joint solution that features data reduction technologies combined with a network-attached storage system that offers storage optimization capacities along with an affordable, manageable, and scalable petabyte-ready storage platform.
Datacenters experience constant change under pressure from technology and business drivers. IT systems are becoming more, not less complex as new technologies are introduced, and IT staffs are not growing to keep pace with the growth in size and complexity of the typical datacenter. Windows administrators need to radically simplify both complex and routine tasks if they are going to effectively respond to the constant pressure to deliver increasing value with limited resources. The most effective thing Windows administrators can do to address this issue is to minimize duties associated with maintaining the existing infrastructure.

As Tarkett Inc. continued to enjoy years of growth they realized their data center was in dire need of an update. It was strewn across eight locations with aging equipment and limited backup power. Tarkett turned to CDW to update and optimize their data center without affecting day-to-day business.
The modern data center has to keep pace with business growth, without outgrowing its physical space. It must meet customer demands, while containing operating costs. The solution lies in a scalable, modular data center-turnkey, high-density, energy-efficient and able to be deployed quickly. Discover how a number of industries have put this concept to work to provide better service and cut costs.

Deduplication is becoming an essential tool to help data center managers control exponential data growth in the backup environment. The methods used to accomplish deduplication vary widely as do the levels of capacity optimization they can provide. Some techniques are well suited to small-to-medium sized backup environments, while others are optimized for larger enterprises. This report describes the various techniques used today to deduplicate data and highlights unique deduplication considerations for enterprise environments.
In this new white paper from Digital Realty Trust you'll see why virtualization software is actually a powerful complementary tool that can increase the efficiency of your existing and future data centers.
As it has been the trend over the last decade, organizations must continue to deal with growing data storage requirements with the same or less resources. The growing adoption of storage-as-a-service, business intelligence, and big data results in ever more Service Level Agreements that are difficult to fulfill without IT administrators spending ever longer hours in the data center. Many organizations now expect their capital expense growth for storage to be unstoppable, and see operating expense levers - such as purchasing storage systems that are easy to manage - as the only way to control data storage-related costs.

The client had an extensive global multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network with over 30 Gbps of bandwidth. However, the client was experiencing bandwidth growth of >30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) and foresaw increasing demands for multi-media applications, data center to data center traffic, and cloud solution usage to support its business units and global workforce. It became crucial for the client to re-architect their
current network to support growth and provide a globally consistent user experience at lower cost. With 40% of their WAN traffic being http internet traffic, they needed regional internet
service provider (ISP) breakouts.
The client needed a lower cost/MB high capacity WAN backbone for better application performance and cloud optimization. Their network needed to be scalable to poise them for anticipated growth and offer improved site connectivity options.
