Ten Topics to Discuss with Your Cloud Provider
Find the “just right” cloud for your business. For this paper, we will focus on existing applications (vs. new application services) that require high levels of performance and security, but that also enable customers to meet specific cost expectations.

Choosing the right cloud service for your organization, or for your target customer if you are a managed service provider, can be time consuming and effort intensive. For this paper, we will focus on existing applications (vs. new application services) that require high levels of performance and security, but that also enable customers to meet specific cost expectations.

Topics covered include:

  • Global access and availability
  • Cloud management
  • Application performance
  • Security and compliance
  • And more!
After the Lockdown – Reinventing the Way Your Business Works
As a result of the Covid-19 lockdown experience, temporary measures will be scaled back and adoption of fully functional “Remote” workplaces will now be accelerated. A reduction in the obstacles for moving to virtual desktops and applications will be required so that businesses can be 100% productive during Business Continuity events. The winners will be those organizations who use and explore the possibilities of a virtual workplace every day.

As lockdowns end, organziations are ready to start planning on how to gear their business for more agility, with a robust business continuity plan for their employees and their technology. A plan that includes technology which enables their business to work at full capacity rather than just getting by.

A successful Business Continuity Plan includes key technology attributes needed for employees to be 100% productive before, during and after a Covid-19 type event. The technology should be:

  • A device agnostic, simple, intuitive and responsive user experienceIt should enhance data security
  • It should increase the agility of IT service delivery options
  • Reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of staff technology delivery
  • Must be simple to deploy, manage and expand remotely

As an affordable but scalable all-in-one virtual desktop and application solution, Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) allows users to securely access virtual workspaces from anywhere, on any device, at any time. Parallels RAS centralizes management of the IT infrastructure, streamlines multi-cloud deployments, enhances data security and improves process automation.

The Backup Bible - Part 1: Creating a Backup & Disaster Recovery Strategy
This eBook is the first of a 3-part series covering everything you need to know about backup and disaster recovery. By downloading this ebook you'll automatically receive part 2 and part 3 by email as soon as they become available!

INTRODUCTION

Humans tend to think optimistically. We plan for the best outcomes because we strive to make them happen. As a result, many organizations implicitly design their computing and data storage systems around the idea that they will operate as expected. They employ front-line fault-tolerance technologies such as RAID and multiple network adapters that will carry the systems through common, simple failures. However, few design plans include comprehensive coverage of catastrophic failures. Without a carefully crafted approach to backup, and a strategic plan to work through and recover from disasters, an organization runs substantial risks. They could experience data destruction or losses that cost them excessive amounts of time and money. Business principals and managers might even find themselves facing personal liability consequences for failing to take proper preparatory steps. At the worst, an emergency could permanently end the enterprise. This book seeks to guide you through all stages of preparing for, responding to, and recovering from a substantial data loss event. In this first part, you will learn how to assess your situation and plan out a strategy that uniquely fits your needs.

WHO SHOULD READ THIS BOOK

This book was written for anyone with an interest in protecting organizational data, from system administrators to business owners. It explains the terms and technologies that it covers in simple, approachable language. As much as possible, it focuses on the business needs first. However, a reader with little experience in server and storage technologies may struggle with applying the content. To put it into action, use this material in conjunction with trained technical staff.

Enterprise Guide to Virtual Office as a Service
The Enterprise guide to Virtual office as a Service investigates the next stage of digital transformation: the deployment by organizations of a global workforce, not confined to a traditional office space.

As more and more organizations shift toward cloud-based global workforces, traditional desktop provisioning options like on-premise VDI, desktop-as-a-service, VPN and shipping laptops have been exposed as costly, slow to implement, and not very secure.

So what can organizations do to quickly and securely provision remote workers and third-party suppliers across the world?

This Guide investigates the next stage of digital transformation: the deployment by organizations of a global workforce, not confined to a traditional office space, through secure and compliant cloud VDI.

It explores why secure and compliant cloud VDI provides a virtual security posture akin to your company’s brick-and-mortar office, and for enterprises looking to implement VDI, real-world use cases in the areas of supply chain security, global workforce enablement, business continuity and disaster recovery, and more.

DataCore Software: flexible, intelligent, and powerful software-defined storage solutions
With DataCore software-defined storage you can pool, command and control storage from competing manufacturers to achieve business continuity and application responsiveness at a lower cost and with greater flexibility than single-sourced hardware or cloud alternatives alone. Our storage virtualization technology includes a rich set of data center services to automate data placement, data protection, data migration, and load balancing across your hybrid storage infrastructure now and into the futu

IT organizations large and small face competitive and economic pressures to improve structured and unstructured data access while reducing the cost to store it. Software-defined storage (SDS) solutions take those challenges head-on by segregating the data services from the hardware, which is a clear departure from once- popular, closely-coupled architectures.

However, many products disguised as SDS solutions remain tightly-bound to the hardware. They are unable to keep up with technology advances and must be entirely replaced in a few years or less. Others stipulate an impractical cloud- only commitment clearly out of reach. For more than two decades, we have seen a fair share of these solutions come and go, leaving their customers scrambling. You may have experienced it first-hand, or know colleagues who have.

In contrast, DataCore customers non-disruptively transition between technology waves, year after year. They fully leverage their past investments and proven practices as they inject clever new innovations into their storage infrastructure. Such unprecedented continuity spanning diverse equipment, manufacturers and access methods sets them apart. As does the short and long-term economic advantage they pump back into the organization, fueling agility and dexterity.
Whether you seek to make better use of disparate assets already in place, simply expand your capacity or modernize your environment, DataCore software-defined storage solutions can help.
