Dynamic Hyper-Converged Infrastructure: Future-Proof Your Data Center
A simplified, more flexible, expandable data center is a big part of what a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) promises. In this white paper, learn about the real advantages of HCI to help future-proof your data center, including: (1) rapid, flexible deployment that lets you leverage existing data center investment, (2) scalability, with no impact to performance and reliability, and (3) an integrated, open, software-centric approach that simplifies resource management.
As IT professionals and leaders in lines of business make technology decisions, they must thoughtfully balance those decisions against competing needs. This is especially true when it comes to weighing data center technology resources against allocation of IT resources for the operational parts of the business. It’s also imperative for organizations to move away from managing resources and IT engineering skills – including data centers and remote offices – in silos. This white paper explores how emerging data center technology – particularly purpose-built hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI) – can help address these challenges while driving additional benefits across the enterprise.

With this guide you will learn…
  • How to prepare for both unplanned and planned disruptions to ensure continuous availability
  • Actionable steps to remove the complexity of moving and migrating workloads across disparate infrastructures
  • Guidance on hybrid and multi-cloud IT: gain the flexibility to move applications in and out of the cloud
The State of IT Resilience 2018
Without IT Resilience, Digital Transformation (and Competitors) Will Pass You By Over 90% of business don’t consider themselves IT resilient, however the majority of these businesses view IT resilience to be foundational to successfully achieve digital transformation. Zerto has partnered with industry-leading research analyst firm, IDC, to get the pulse of the state of IT resilience and its correlation to business and digital transformation.

From... to cloud ready in less than one day with Parallels and ThinPrint
Mobility, security and compliance, automation, and the demand for “the workspace of the future” are just some of the challenges that businesses face today. The cloud is best positioned to support these challenges, but it can be hard to pick the right kind of cloud and find the right balance between cost and benefits. Together, Parallels and ThinPrint allow an organization to become a cloud-ready business on its own terms, with unprecedented ease and cost-effectiveness.

Whatever your plans are, Parallels and ThinPrint will help you implement them with easy, cost-effective solutions and the ability to adapt to future challenges.

Secure Cloud Printing: How to Ensure Complete Security in the Cloud
One of the key tenets of cloud computing is the reduction of hardware and software ownership and maintenance which allows organizations to focus on their core business strategies and strengths. However, by adopting a cloud service, organizations must be willing to give up direct control of whichever system they are moving to the cloud and this naturally spawns concerns over security. This white paper seeks to address the challenges and considerations, ramifications and benefits of achieving a su
One of the key tenets of cloud computing is the reduction of hardware and software ownership and maintenance which allows organizations to focus on their core business strategies and strengths. This is already a growing trend with serverless printing where organizations are consolidating remote print servers to a centralized data server.  However, by adopting a cloud service, organizations must be willing to give up direct control of whichever system they are moving to the cloud and this naturally spawns concerns over security. This white paper seeks to address the challenges and considerations, ramifications and benefits of achieving a sustainable, solid, demonstrable print infrastructure, otherwise termed as achieving a state of secure print. We cover the possible solutions provided by both Microsoft Azure and UniPrint compared to the usual unencyped printer port solution.
The Case for Converged Application & Infrastructure Performance Monitoring
Read this white paper and learn how you can combine and correlate performance insights from the application (code, SQL, logs) and the underlying hardware infrastructure (server, network, virtualization, storage, etc.)

One of the toughest problems facing enterprise IT teams today is troubleshooting slow applications. When a user complains of slowness in application access, all hell breaks loose, and the blame game begins: app owners, developers and IT ops teams enter into endless war room sessions to figure out what went wrong and where. Have you also been in this situation before?

Read this white paper by Larry Dragich, and learn how you can combine and correlate performance insights from the application (code, SQL, logs) and the underlying hardware infrastructure (server, network, virtualization, storage, etc.) in order to:

  • Proactively detect user experience issues before your customers are impacted
  • Trace business transactions and isolate the cause of application slowness
  • Get code-level visibility to identify inefficient application code and slow database queries
  • Automatically map application dependencies within the infrastructure to pinpoint the root cause of the problem
Achieve centralized visibility of all your applications and infrastructure and easily diagnose the root cause of performance slowdowns.
UD Pocket Saves the Day After Malware Cripple’s Hospital’s Mission-Critical PCs
IGEL Platinum Partner A2U had endpoints within the healthcare organization’s finance department up and running within a few hours following the potentially crippling cyberattack, thanks to the innovative micro thin client.

A2U, an IGEL Platinum Partner, recently experienced a situation where one of its large, regional healthcare clients was hit by a cyberattack. “Essentially, malware entered the client’s network via a computer and began replicating like wildfire,” recalls A2U Vice President of Sales, Robert Hammond.

During the cyberattack, a few hundred of the hospital’s PCs were affected. Among those were 30 endpoints within the finance department that the healthcare organization deemed mission critical due to the volume of daily transactions between patients, insurance companies, and state and county agencies for services rendered. “It was very painful from a business standpoint not to be able to conduct billing and receiving, not to mention payroll,” said Hammond.

Prior to this particular incident, A2U had received demo units of the IGEL UD Pocket, a revolutionary micro thin client that can transform x86-compatible PCs and laptops into IGEL OS-powered desktops.

“We had been having a discussion with this client about re-imaging their PCs, but their primary concern was maintaining the integrity of the data that was already on the hardware,” continued Hammond. “HIPAA and other regulations meant that they needed to preserve the data and keep it secure, and we thought that the IGEL UD Pocket could be the answer to this problem. We didn’t see why it wouldn’t work, but we needed to test our theory.”

When the malware attack hit, that opportunity came sooner, rather than later for A2U. “We plugged the UD Pocket into one of the affected machines and were able to bypass the local hard drive, installing the Linux-based IGEL OS on the system without impacting existing data,” said Hammond. “It was like we had created a ‘Linux bubble’ that protected the machine, yet created an environment that allowed end users to quickly return to productivity.”

Working with the hospital’s IT team, it only took a few hours for A2U to get the entire finance department back online. “They were able to start billing the very next day,” added Hammond.
