Mind The Gap: Understanding the threats to your Office 365 data
Download this whitepaper to learn more about how you can prevent, or mitigate, these common Office 365 data threats: External threats like ransomware, Malicious insiders, User-errors and accidental keystrokes.
From corporate contacts to sensitive messages and attachments, email systems at all companies contain some of the most important data needed to keep business running and successful. At the same time, your office productivity suite of documents, notes and spreadsheets created by your employees is equally vital. Unfortunately, in both cases, protecting that data is increasingly challenging. Microsoft provides what some describe as marginal efforts to protect and backup data, however the majority of the burden is placed on the customer.

Top 10 VMware Performance Metrics That Every VMware Admin Must Monitor
How does one track the resource usage metrics for VMs and which ones are important? VMware vSphere comprises many different resource components. Knowing what these components are and how each component influences resource management decisions is key to efficiently managing VM performance. In this blog, we will discuss the top 10 metrics that every VMware administrator must continuously track.

Virtualization technology is being widely adopted thanks to the flexibility, agility, reliability and ease of administration it offers. At the same time, any IT technology – hardware or software – is only as good as its maintenance and upkeep, and VMware virtualization is no different. With physical machines, failure or poor performance of a machine affects the applications running on that machine. With virtualization, multiple virtual machines (VMs) run on the same physical host and a slowdown of the host will affect applications running on all of the VMs. Hence, performance monitoring is even more important in a virtualized infrastructure than it is in a physical infrastructure.

How does one determine what would be the right amount of resources to allocate to a VM? The answer to that question lies in tracking the resource usage of VMs over time, determining the norms of usage and then right-sizing the VMs accordingly.

But how does one track the resource usage metrics for VMs and which ones are important? VMware vSphere comprises many different resource components. Knowing what these components are and how each component influences resource management decisions is key to efficiently managing VM performance. In this blog, we will discuss the top 10 metrics that every VMware administrator must continuously track.

Disaster Recovery: Make the Case to Add It to Your IT Budget
For a complete, fully resilient business continuity solution, organizations must employ both backups and DR. This paper addresses common myths business leaders may think about disaster recovery (DR).

Business leaders across the globe may think disaster recovery (DR) is too expensive, too complex or that a disaster is unlikely to impact them. Yet human error, cybercrime or a natural disaster can cause their company’s digital infrastructure to come crashing down in a split second. Then what?

Get this white paper to learn about:
•    What can constitute an IT disaster
•    Why you need more than just backups
•    The affordability, scalability and agility of DR
•    The variety of use cases for DR

The SysAdmin Guide to Azure Infrastructure as a Service
If you're used to on-premises infrastructures, cloud platforms can seem daunting. But it doesn't need to be. This eBook written by the veteran IT consultant and trainer Paul Schnackenburg, covers all aspects of setting up and maintaining a high-performing Azure IaaS environment, including: • VM sizing and deployment • Migration • Storage and networking • Security and identity • Infrastructure as code and more!

The cloud computing era is well and truly upon us, and knowing how to take advantage of the benefits of this computing paradigm while maintaining security, manageability, and cost control are vital skills for any IT professional in 2020 and beyond. And its importance is only getting greater.

In this eBook, we’re going to focus on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) on Microsoft’s Azure platform - learning how to create VMs, size them correctly, manage storage, networking, and security, along with backup best practices. You’ll also learn how to operate groups of VMs, deploy resources based on templates, managing security and automate your infrastructure. If you currently have VMs in your own datacenter and are looking to migrate to Azure, we’ll also teach you that.

If you’re new to the cloud (or have experience with AWS/GCP but not Azure), this book will cover the basics as well as more advanced skills. Given how fast things change in the cloud, we’ll cover the why (as well as the how) so that as features and interfaces are updated, you’ll have the theoretical knowledge to effectively adapt and know how to proceed.

You’ll benefit most from this book if you actively follow along with the tutorials. We will be going through terms and definitions as we go – learning by doing has always been my preferred way of education. If you don’t have access to an Azure subscription, you can sign up for a free trial with Microsoft. This will give you 30 days 6 to use $200 USD worth of Azure resources, along with 12 months of free resources. Note that most of these “12 months” services aren’t related to IaaS VMs (apart from a few SSD based virtual disks and a small VM that you can run for 750 hours a month) so be sure to get everything covered on the IaaS side before your trial expires. There are also another 25 services that have free tiers “forever”.

Now you know what’s in store, let’s get started!

Evaluator Group Report on Liqid Composable Infrastructure
In this report from Eric Slack, Senior Analyst at the Evaluator Group, learn how Liqid’s software-defined platform delivers comprehensive, multi-fabric composable infrastructure for the industry’s widest array of data center resources.
Composable Infrastructures direct-connect compute and storage resources dynamically—using virtualized networking techniques controlled by software. Instead of physically constructing a server with specific internal devices (storage, NICs, GPUs or FPGAs), or cabling the appropriate device chassis to a server, composable enables the virtual connection of these resources at the device level as needed, when needed.
