THE CHALLENGE: DATA SOLUTIONS CAN’T KEEP PACE WITH DATA NEEDS Organizations are increasingly dependent on diff erent types of data to make successful business decisions. But as the volume, rate, and types of data expand and become less predictable, conventional data warehouses cannot consume all this data eff ectively. Big data solutions like Hadoop increase the complexity of the environment and generally lack the performance of traditional data warehouses. This makes it difficult, expensive, and time-consuming to manage all the systems and the data.

Big data applications represent a fast-growing category of high-value applications that are increasingly employed by business and technical computing users. However, they have exposed an inconvenient dichotomy in the way resources are utilized in data centers. Conventional enterprise and web-based applications can be executed efficiently in virtualized server environments, where resource management and scheduling is generally confined to a single server. By contrast, data-intensive analytics and technical simulations demand large aggregated resources, necessitating intelligent scheduling and resource management that spans a computer cluster, cloud, or entire data center. Although these tools exist in isolation, they are not available in a general-purpose framework that allows them to inter operate easily and automatically within existing IT infrastructure.

Today, business is conducted in a fast-paced, on-demand, globally dispersed environment. Maintaining a competitive edge requires cohesive real-time collaboration. Mobile workers, partners, vendors, suppliers, and even customers expect to be able to work together seamlessly, both inside and outside the firewall. But delivering tools for high-quality collaboration is often challenging, due to the need for businesses of all sizes to support a wide range of personal and business devices. Mixing disparate devices with complex conferencing solutions often lead to frustrated employees, while businesses face a labor-intensive, costly endeavor without a high ROI. In addition, collaboration is evolving with businesses creating small "huddle" spaces and open workspaces that increase the demand for ubiquitous, effective conferencing. The Intel Unite ' solution is a fast, simple, cost-efficient way to deliver a more secure, manageable, high-quality collaboration experience. Whether you select the

Organizations continue to rush down the digital transformation path. Whether by modernizing their IT infrastructures, leveraging the cloud, or becoming data-centric and data-driven, organizations must become more agile in their business practices and within their IT infrastructure stack to effectively compete in today’s dynamic business environment. Between the speed and distributed nature of modern businesses, as well as the expectation of instantaneous access to data from everyday users, it’s not surprising that nearly one in three organizations are looking into ways to improve data analytics for real-time business intelligence and customer insight.

This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long. Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment. After describing these issues, we consider the usefulness of a purpose-built database system that can accelerate access to and management of relevant data and is designed to deliver high performance for t

Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale.

As organizations continue to look for ways to increase business agility, a need for a modern database architecture that can rapidly respond to the needs of business is more apparent than ever. While an RDBMS still serves as a lifeline for many organizations, the adoption of technologies such as NoSQL and Hadoop are enabling organizations to best address database performance and scalability requirements while also satisfying the goals of embracing hybrid cloud and becoming more data-driven. And with organizations relying so heavily on these new technologies to yield rapid insights that positively impact the business, the need to evaluate how those new technologies are managed and protected is essential. Hadoop and NoSQL workloads are now pervasive in production environments and require “production-class” data protection, yet few data protection solutions offer such capabilities today.

This assessment shows that enterprises adopt Red Hat Fuse because they believe in a community-based open source approach to integration for modernizing their integration infrastructure that delivers strong ROI. For these organizations, Fuse was part of a larger digital transformation initiative and was also used to modernize integration. IDC interviewed organizations using Fuse to integrate important business applications across their heterogeneous IT environments. These Red Hat customers reported that Fuse has enabled them to complete substantially more integrations at a higher quality level, thereby supporting their efforts to deliver timely and functional applications and digital services. Efficiencies in application integration with Fuse have generated significant value for study participants, which IDC quantifies at an average value of $75,453 per application integrated per year ($985,600 per organization). They have attained this value by: » Enabling more efficient and effectiv

Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.

For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.
