How to Simplify Application-Centric Workload and Resource Planning
In this Uila sponsored white paper, Nick Howell and James Green talks about top challenges with Application-Centric Workload and Resource Planning and how you can solve them.
Transparency among teams, departments, and leaders is something many companies could improve on. IT teams are almost always oversubscribed, have a never-ending task list, and are constantly being asked to move mountains. While the things they’re asked to do are not impossible, they can be very daunting when not properly planned for or when the necessary resources are not available due to budget constraints.

You’ll never save your job in a failure scenario by blaming the company for not giving you enough money to do something required to facilitate successful business continuity. This makes planning and resource evaluation one of the (if not the) most important considerations to help you avoid landing yourself in hot water when the inevitable occurs

Essential Guide to Storage for Virtualization
If your organization is highly virtualized, or if you’re planning a virtual-first strategy for your organization, you cannot meet your objectives with conventional LUN and volume-based storage. Conventional storage architectures that were built for physical workloads decades ago are still used by both legacy providers and storage newcomers today. Instead, you need storage specifically built for virtualization and cloud.
If your organization is highly virtualized, or if you’re planning a virtual-first strategy for your organization, you cannot meet your objectives with conventional LUN and volume-based storage. Conventional storage architectures that were built for physical workloads decades ago are still used by both legacy providers and storage newcomers today. Instead, you need storage specifically built for virtualization and cloud.

Key Takeaways:
1) Understand the constraints of conventional, legacy storage solutions.
2) Learn how modern storage systems eliminate the disconnect between virtualized applications and physical-era storage.
3) Recognize the business benefits - including time and cost savings - that can be realized with storage that is optimized for virtualization and cloud.

3 Potential Risks of an HCI Architecture
The appeal of HCI as a concept is that by bringing compute, network and storage together in a fully-tested, controlled environment, infrastructure administrators would be freed from the challenges of integrating point solutions and would have scalable, guaranteed performance at lower risk. For specific workloads such as VDI and ROBO, the theory is that customers can allocate resources quickly, scale easily, and reduce costs significantly because of the integration and features in its platform.

The appeal of HCI as a concept is that by bringing compute, network and storage together in a fully-tested, controlled environment, infrastructure administrators would be freed from the challenges of integrating point solutions and would have scalable, guaranteed performance at lower risk. For specific workloads such as VDI and ROBO, the theory is that customers can allocate resources quickly, scale easily, and reduce costs significantly because of the integration and features in its platform. The reality is more complicated—it’s difficult for HCI to deliver scalability, simplicity, and cost advantages without sacrificing performance.
Application & Desktop Delivery for Dummies
In this book, you learn how solutions, such as Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS), replace traditional application deployment with on-demand application delivery, and why it's right for your organization.
Applications are essential to the businesses and organizations of all sizes and in all industries. End-users need to have continuous and reliable access to their applications whether working in the office or remotely, at any time of the day or night, and from any device. With the advent of cloud computing, office desktops with installed applications (that had to be constantly updated) have become a thing of the past — application streaming, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and hosted applications are the future (and the present, for that matter). Application virtualization is an easy way to manage, distribute, and maintain business applications. Virtualized applications run on a server, while end-users view and interact with their applications over a network via a remote display protocol. Remote applications can be completely integrated with the user’s desktop so that they appear and behave like local applications. Today, you can dynamically publish applications to remote users in several ways. The server-based operating system (OS) instances that run remote applications can be shared with other users (a terminal services desktop), or the application can be running on its own OS instance on the server (a VDI desktop).

With the move towards digital transformation, many organizations are looking to achieve business agility by speeding up the delivery of infrastructure and application services. While the move towards automating provisioning workflows may seem like an obvious step that should be adopted by IT teams, many organizations are reluctant to make drastic changes to the existing processes without understanding the impacts first

In the absence of automated workflows, IT organizations find themselves stuck with manual processes that result in long waits experienced by end users, rising operational expenses, inconsistent infrastructure, and overall dissatisfaction by business users.

3 Steps to Dockerize and Migrate your Java and .NET Applications
Migrating existing applications to the cloud can be achieved by completing 3 simple steps. Download this guide for detailed instructions on containerizing and migrating your Java & .NET applications to any cloud.
For many IT organizations that inherit legacy applications without any documentation or much knowledge about the application dependencies, the task of modernizing these applications while avoiding application code changes becomes overwhelming.  HyperForm drives business innovation by modernizing existing legacy applications without making a single code change and using the existing skill sets within an organization.

The on-the-fly containerization capabilities allow users to “lift and shift” existing Java and .NET applications to containers while taking care of the complex application dependencies, automatic service discovery, auto-scaling and integration with any external service (e.g. storage, networking, logging, etc.). HyperForm transforms non-cloud-native legacy applications into completely portable applications that can take advantage of auto scaling and deployment agility on any cloud.
