Enterprises today increasingly turn to array-based snapshots and replication to augment or replace legacy data protection solutions that have been overwhelmed by data growth. The challenge is that native array snapshot tools – and alternative 3rd party solutions – have varying degrees of functionality, automation, scripting requirements, hardware support and application awareness. These approaches can add risk as well as administrative complexity and make it more difficult to realize the full potential of snapshots – whether in single disk vendor estates or in heterogeneous storage environments. This checklist will enable you to build a shortlist of the 'must have' features needed for snapshots to deliver exactly what you require in your application environment or Private Cloud.

This paper contrasts the features of medium voltage fixed circuit breaker switchgear (FCBS) and existing withdrawable circuit breaker switgear (WCBS) designs. Modern FCBS design elements that are discussed include an internal disconnect for isolation and grounding of circuits and interlocked operation among disconnect, breaker, and grounding switch for improved safety. Furthermore, features such as lower maintenance, smaller footprint, and reduced life cycle costs that result from its simpler design will be explored. By comparing the traditional ANSI WCBS technology to that of the FCBS, this paper will demonstrate that the fixed design, which has gained widespread acceptance in global markets outside the United States, is a viable alternative to the withdrawable designs.

Case management frameworks built on business process management platforms help IT solutions architects deploy case-handling applications and offer an alternative to specialized case management applications and custom coding. According to Gartner, the complex architecture required to support case management has relegated it to the status of a niche application, typically addressed by specialist, commercial off-the-shelf application providers and system integrators. Case management as a process style is being applied in many sectors beyond government, legal and insurance, including healthcare, banking, higher education and retail. Industry and cross-industry case management frameworks are now available. "Adaptive case management" hype exceeds the reality of what buyers need.

Many premises-based phone system (PBX) manufacturers claim that the five year costs of their systems are lower than an equivalent cloud alternative. What the premises guys don’t tell you about is all the extra little hidden costs that come as a result of the limitations of the hardware and software in their systems. This guide will provide you with useful questions to ask your PBX manufacturer to ensure that you're getting the full picture on the cost of their system. Questions to Ask During an Evaluation: • Have you sized this system for my peak demand? • Have you factored in the cost of site redundancy? • How many hours of call recording are included? • How is mobility supported? Do calls route in an out of the PBX for call treatment? • What are the annual maintenance costs of the hardware and software in this system? • Which third party systems have you integrated this PBX with?

This whitepaper explores the new SPARC S7 server features and then compares this offering to a similar x86 offering. The key characteristics of the SPARC S7 to be highlighted are: ? Designed for scale-out and cloud infrastructures ? SPARC S7 processor with greater core performance than the latest Intel Xeon E5 processor ? Software in Silicon which offers hardware-based features such as data acceleration and security The SPARC S7 is then compared to a similar x86 solution from three different perspectives, namely performance, risk and cost. Performance matters as business markets are driving IT to provide an environment that: ? Continuously provides real-time results. ? Processes more complex workload stacks. ? Optimizes usage of per-core software licenses. Risk matters today and into the foreseeable future, as challenges to secure systems and data are becoming more frequent and invasive from within and from outside.

The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered. This paper offers guidance to help organizations establish a systematic and repeatable process for implementing a cloud-first strategy. It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions. The goal of this guidance is to help ensure that any new cloud program is secure, compliant, efficient, and successfully implements the organization’s key business initiatives.

In our 2018 Trends in Information Security report, we outlined a concept we referred to as the ‘identity-aware perimeter.’ The essential idea is that as new architectures such as cloud, containers, mobility and IoT take hold, controlling access to resources will increasingly need to rely on identity as an alternative to purely network-based approaches focused more on ‘where’ you are than ‘who’ you are. By combining identity with user and entity behavior and risk scoring to gate access, Preempt fits squarely within this trend, which we think could be one of the most interesting and powerful to hit the infosec market in years. Preempt has few direct competitors, and its initial challenge will be finding ways to distinguish itself from vendors in adjacent categories such as adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), advanced threat protection, user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) and cloud access security brokers (CASB), to name a few. Forging a new security category is never easy,

While great products are great, having a great product is no longer enough. Products alone simply don’t win anymore. Say you’ve just launched a brilliant product or service. A myriad of near-identical alternatives from competitors will likely flood the market almost immediately. Differentiating yours from theirs has become a lot more difficult. Not to mention that technology has made it easier than ever for customers to shop around. From gathering information, to interacting with brands and purchasing products, it’s never been simpler to find the cheapest, fastest, smartest alternative, anywhere in the world.

IDC’s research has shown the movement of most IT workloads to the cloud in the coming years. Yet, with all the talk about enterprises moving to the cloud, some of them still wonder if such a move is really cost effective and what business benefits may result. While the answers to such questions vary from workload to workload, one area attracting particular attention is that of the data warehouse. Many enterprises have substantial investments in data warehousing, with an ongoing cost to managing that resource in terms of software licensing, maintenance fees, operational costs, and hardware. Can it make sense to move to a cloud-based alternative? What are the costs and benefits? How soon can such a move pay itself off? Download now to find out more.
