Where we encounter the problem of applying the most modern security model we have to the most capable data centers we run and discover the two may come from different eras.
By Jesse St. Laurent, HPE Chief Technologist, Hyperconverged & SimpliVity Everyone seems to be looking for ways to be more “green” these days ­– hybrid cars, reusable grocery bags, etc.

And those in IT are no exception.

Traditional IT environmen...
Deputy commissioner says the system is "backed up"; IT staff affidavit says otherwise.
At the heart of Microsoftrsquo;s Azure adoption strategy is the idea of the hybrid cloud, bridging on-premises datacenters and cloud computing. You donrsquo;t need to get rid of your old servers; instead, you connect them to the public cloud to take advantage of its scale and services, treating it as an extension of your existing datacenter.There are two main ways of connecting to private virtual networks on Azure: you can use a VPN over the public internet, or you can set up a direct connection into Azure data centers with Microsoftrsquo;s ExpressRoute.

For most use cases, the VPN option is the most economical because it uses your existing systems and so doesnrsquo;t require significant extra hardware or new leased lines.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
In the field of information security, sandboxes are used to isolate an insecure external environment from a secure internal environment (or vice versa), to protect against the exploitation of vulnerabilities, and to analyze malicious code.

At Kaspersky Lab, we have several sandboxes, we will look at just one of them that was customized to serve the needs of a specific product and became the basis of Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform.
London, 14 September 2017 - New research by BroadGroup suggests that investment in the data center sector in the Nordic market has reached around USD 3 billion over the last twelve to eighteen months alone.

Cheap energy, open land, and tax breaks are making Iowa a go-to for data centers.
Today, we are excited to extend intelligent cryptographic processing and data compression to the farthest edge of the network with the launch of our Intel Atomreg; C3000 platform.

Designed for low power, efficient intelligence and scalability for a variety of network and storage workloads, the new Intel Atom C3000 platform is a purpose-built offering for the unique edge requirements of small physical size, very low power, and extreme temperature range.Extends Intelligence to the Network EdgeWith up to 3.4X network performance improvement2 over prior generation (Intel Atom C2000 processor), the new Intel Atom C3000 processor delivers enhanced, efficient performance for the intelligent edge.
It features integrated Intelreg; QuickAssist Technology, delivering up to 20 Gbps of cryptographic processing and data compression offload at the network edge; complementing data centers based on Intelreg; Xeonreg; Scalable processors that support aggregated workload demands with 100 Gbps Intelreg; QAT acceleration. With this significant upgrade in performance and capabilities, now is an ideal time to refresh.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Vacations are over, school is about to start, and people are starting to think about what to do in the four months until the end of the year.
In IT, that means driving success in the cloud.Many IT manages have been incentivized with impending deadlines for shutting down enterprise data centers, migrating applications, and converting data from the enterprise to the cloud data conversion projects.
Itrsquo;s all a bit overwhelming.

But there are two things you must do before 2017 is over.[ What is cloud computing? Everything you need to know now. | Also: InfoWorldrsquo;s David Linthicum explains what exactly is edge computing. ]1.

Think securitymdash;yes, again When considering the public cloud, security should be systemic to everything you do.

This includes when encryption, key management, and the use of identities. However, most enterprises moving to cloud have no real definition of their security strategy, not to mention policies or the selection of enabling technology.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
In my last article, I discussed threats that wreak havoc on data centers and why even relatively simple attacks can cause loads of issues for companies.

Today, the threats that organizations face are only increasing in severity and frequency.

During the first few months of 2017, mobile ransomware rose over 250 percent according to Kaspersky Lab. Just last week, GoldenEye, the new strain of the Petya ransomware, took the world by storm.These examples are proof that attacks are getting smarter, enterprises are leaving themselves vulnerable and threat actors are doing more damage than goodmdash;at least in some instances.
Itrsquo;s time to challenge conventional wisdom.

The traditional VM environment and reactive tactics, where anything on the VM requires constant monitoring, isnrsquo;t working anymore.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
At last itrsquo;s here: After a prolonged gestation with three public previews, Microsoft has announced the release of Azure Stack. You can download the free Azure Stack Development Kit now.

Complete hardware and software solutions will ship in the next couple of months, when Microsoft completes certification.Bringing the public cloud to on-premises data centers was always going to be a big task, and Microsoft wonrsquo;t be delivering the entirety of Azure in this initial release.
In fact, donrsquo;t expect to ever see all of Azure in Azure Stack, as there are plenty of Azure features that rely on the scale of cloud.

That said, there is more than enough to start with, with support for core Azure IaaS and PaaS features. Other optional elements include Azurersquo;s App Service and its serverless Functions.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
