The world of storage is being transformed by the maturing of flash arrays, an approach to storage that uses multiple, solid state flash memory drives instead of spinning hard disk drives. An all-flash array performs the same functions as traditional spinning disks but in a fraction of the time required and in more compact form factors. Given its superior performance in certain contexts, all-flash arrays are experiencing strong industry adoption. However, best practices and a true understanding of key success factors for all- flash storage are still emerging. This paper is intended to educate you on best practices based on real user experience drawn from ITCentralStation.com. We offer all-flash user advice in selecting and building the business case for a flash array storage solution.

Windows 10 is the OS of the future and fundamentally changes how PCs and other devices will be used and supported in organizations. However, with different support periods set by Microsoft for Windows 7, each IT and procurement organization need to evaluate what hardware and software combination will best support their workforce if they are not ready to move to Windows 10 right away. Even purchasing new PCs to take advantage of performance improvements and new form factors while downgrading the OS may not be an optimal strategy going forward.

Although the cost of flash storage solutions continues to fall, on a per-gigabyte capacity basis, it is still significantly more expensive to acquire than traditional hard drives. However, when the cost per gigabyte is examined in terms of TCO, and the customer looks past the pure acquisition cost and accounts for “soft factors” such as prolonging the life of a data center, lower operating costs (for example, power and cooling), increased flexibility and scalability, or the service levels that a flash solution enables, flash solution costs become increasingly competitive with spinning media.

As any line of business (LOB) leader knows, making customer level decisions that balance risk and profit just keeps getting harder. And even when you think you have the right decisions, turning them into actions can be even trickier. You also need to consider the factors that make smart decisions difficult. Big data. Regulations. Customers who want an offer, fast, or else you’re going to lose them.

The world of IT is undergoing a digital transformation. Applications are growing fast, and so are the users consuming them. These applications are everywhere—in the datacenter, on virtual and/or microservices platforms, in the cloud, and as SaaS. More and more apps are now being moved out of datacenters to a cloud-based infrastructure. In order for an optimized and secure delivery of these applications, IT needs specific network appliances called Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs). These ADCs come in hardware, virtual, and containerized form factors, and are sized by Network Administrators based on the current and future usage of applications. The challenge with this is that it’s hard to foresee sizing or scalability requirements for these ADCs since users are constantly increasing, and applications are consistently evolving, as well as moving out of datacenters. Complicating matters, most ADCs are fixed-capacity network appliances that provide zero or minimum expansion capability

Analytics inform, but the gut is what executives rely upon most — even in tech, according to a new study conducted by the FORTUNE Knowledge Group and gyro. While conventional wisdom and the codes of the high-tech world would indicate that “hard” elements, such as cost, quality and efficiency, are more compelling to this audience, new research shows that the opposite is true. When asked to share their feelings about what really drives their purchase decisions, high-tech executives revealed that “soft” factors, including company culture, reputation and level of trust, were what they relied on most to help them make decisions.
