Many businesses are beginning to understand that hybrid cloud can provide the best of both worlds: on-demand access to much-needed IT resources, and the flexibility to move workloads onsite or offsite to meet specific needs. The most common question is not “Why hybrid cloud?” but “How do we get started?” Depending on your specific IT strategy and requirements, consider evaluating the following five types of workloads for hybrid cloud.
There is no question that every business wants to protect their operations from downtime and loss of data. But many companies don’t have the internal expertise or budget to implement the disaster recovery plan they need. Traditional disaster recovery solutions typically cost too much; they’re too complex; and they are not always reliable.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) works best for smaller centrally located user bases that share a core set of application and file needs. As the world moves to the web and the cloud, is VDI still a good fit for emerging mobility and BYOD needs for your agency? See this infographic to learn more about the tradeoffs, and what you can do to take advantage of emerging cloud solutions to drive improved mobile productivity across your entire organization.
Renewed interest in Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) comes largely from the need to solve mobility and BYOD demands. Though traditional VDI vendors bring their own solutions to market, is it time to consider smarter alternatives? By focusing on where VDI excels, where it falls short, and where web and cloud services are most compatible, agencies can take a smarter approach to these difficult decisions. Understand the tradeoffs, and learn why more agencies are taking notice to emerging we
Agency IT is tasked with building smarter and more responsive state and local government, with CTOs looking to enable government workforce mobility and address strategic issues like BYOD. Adding to the challenge is a rise in devices and data that IT must deliver, support, and secure. Combined with the decline in traditional Windows-based computing, these challenges are driving agencies toward web and cloud solutions that don't sacrifice security or manageability. See the solution that has govern
Enterprise content management (ECM) has more than proven its value for state and local government, but at the same time, traditional ECM can be costly and take months or even years to implement. Government agencies can leverage the cloud to get the same ECM functionalities with fewer resources in a much shorter timeframe.
While technology service options for government continue to evolve, procurement processes and policies have remained firmly rooted in practices that are no longer effective. This guide, built upon the collaborative work of state and local government and industry executives, outlines and explains the changes needed for more flexible and agile procurement processes.
Autodesk Vehicle Tracking simplifies and automates complex drafting scenarios and allows designers and planners at government agencies to quickly validate designs for transportation projects and provides the capability to evaluate vehicle movements on transportation or site design projects.
Cyber attacks have grown exponentially in terms of frequency and sophistication, demanding near real time, highly available, and automated responses to threats. An open, software-defined storage platform, such as Red Hat Storage Server, running on Cisco UCS servers combined with Splunk Enterprise operational intelligence software reduces the cost and risk of cyber attacks.
