3 Myths About Public Cloud
The promised flexibility and availability of public cloud offerings present a way to offload simple IT functions and reduce infrastructure costs. However, the hidden per-unit costs can drawback the infrastructure benefits of the public cloud. An efficiently designed private cloud infrastructure can offer the agility of public cloud, but with greater control of cost and performance.
The promised flexibility and availability of public cloud offerings present a way to offload simple IT functions and reduce infrastructure costs. However, the hidden per-unit costs can drawback the infrastructure benefits of the public cloud. An efficiently designed private cloud infrastructure can offer the agility of public cloud, but with greater control of cost and performance.

Explore this paper to discover the top 3 myths of public clouds, including:

1) The acceleration of DevOps is for public cloud infrastructures
2) All types of applications perform well in public cloud
3) Public cloud is more cost-effective than private cloud
Data Protection Overview and Best Practices
This white paper works through data protection processes and best practices using the Tintri. Tintri technology is differentiated by its level of abstraction—the ability to take every action on individual virtual machines.
This white paper works through data protection processes and best practices using the Tintri. Tintri technology is differentiated by its level of abstraction—the ability to take every action on individual virtual machines. In this paper, you’ll:

1) Learn how that greatly increases the precision and efficiency of snapshots for data protection
2) Explore the ability to move between recovery points
3) Analyze the behavior of individual virtual machines
4) Predict the need for additional capacity and performance for data protection

If you’re focused on building a successful data protection solution, this document targets key best practices and known challenges. Hypervisor administrators and staff members associated with architecting, deploying and administering a data protection and disaster recovery solution will want to dig into this document to understand how Tintri can save them the majority of their management effort and greatly reduce operating expense.
HyperCore-Direct: NVMe Optimized Hyperconvergence
Scale Computing’s award winning HC3 solution has long been a leader in the hyperconverged infrastructure space. Now targeting even higher performing workloads, Scale Computing is announcing HyperCore-Direct, the first hyperconverged solution to provide software defined block storage utilizing NVMe over fabrics at near bare-metal performance.
Scale Computing’s award winning HC3 solution has long been a leader in the hyperconverged infrastructure space. Now targeting even higher performing workloads, Scale Computing is announcing HyperCore-Direct, the first hyperconverged solution to provide software defined block storage utilizing NVMe over fabrics at near bare-metal performance. In this whitepaper, we will showcase the performance of a Scale HyperCore-Direct cluster which has been equipped with Intel P3700 NVMe drives, as well as a single-node HyperCore-Direct system with Intel Optane P4800X NVMe drives. Various workloads have been tested using off-the-shelf Linux and Windows virtual machine instances. The results show that HyperCore-Direct’s new NVMe optimized version of SCRIBE, the same software-defined- storage powering every HC3 cluster in production today, is able to offer the lowest latency per IO delivered to virtual machines.
Print File Formats: A Comparative Analysis of EMR, OpenXPS and PDF for Enterprise Printing
Universal Printer Driver technology can simplify printer management, increase security and reduce print output. UPDs make it possible to convert documents of any type, while a virtual printer can be installed on a server and made available for printing on the local network. Yet there is continued debate concerning the most appropriate UPD file formats. The purpose of this white paper is to provide a technical comparison and analysis of each of the three most widely adopted print file formats w
Universal Printer Driver technology can simplify printer management, increase security and reduce print output. UPDs make it possible to convert documents of any type, while a virtual printer can be installed on a server and made available for printing on the local network. Yet there is continued debate concerning the most appropriate UPD file formats.

The purpose of this white paper is to provide a technical comparison and analysis of each of the three most widely adopted print file formats within Universal Printer Driver (UPD) solutions, and how they influence printing performance in enterprise computing environments.
IGEL Delivers Manageability, Scalability and Security for The Auto Club Group
The Auto Club Group realizes cost-savings; increased productivity; and improved time-to-value with IGEL’s software-defined endpoint management solutions.
In 2016, The Auto Club Group was starting to implement a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution leveraging Citrix XenDesktop on both its static endpoints and laptop computers used in the field by its insurance agents, adjusters and other remote employees. “We were having a difficult time identifying a solution that would enable us to simplify the management of our laptop computers, in particular, while providing us with the flexibility, scalability and security we wanted from an endpoint management perspective,” said James McVicar, IT Architect, The Auto Club Group.

Some of the mobility management solutions The Auto Club has been evaluating relied on Windows CE, a solution that is nearing end-of-life. “We didn’t want to deal with the patches and other management headaches related to a Windows-based solutions, so this was not an attractive option,” said McVicar.

In the search for a mobile endpoint management solution, McVicar and his team came across IGEL and were quickly impressed. McVicar said, “What first drew our attention to IGEL was the ability to leverage the IGEL UDC to quickly and easily convert our existing laptop computers into an IGEL OS-powered desktop computing solution, that we could then manage via the IGEL UMS. Because IGEL is Linux-based, we found that it offered both the functionality and stability we needed within our enterprise.”

As The Auto Club Group continues to expand its operations, it will be rolling out additional IGEL OS-powered endpoints to its remote workers, and expects its deployment to exceed 400 endpoints once the project is complete.

The Auto Club Group is also looking at possibly leveraging the IGEL Cloud Gateway, which will help bring more performance and functionality to those working outside of the corporate WAN.
Azure Security Center: A Complete Guide
