It’s About Process (or The Ability to Be Responsive)


Because business processes are often communicated in an ad hoc and unregulated manner, it can be difficult to standardize processes across organizations, particularly larger ones.

TCO Analysis of a Traditional Data Center vs. a Scalable, Containerized Data Center


Standardized, scalable, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules provide a total cost of ownership (TCO) savings of 30% compared with traditional, built-out data center power and cooling infrastructure. Avoiding overbuilt capacity and scaling the design over time contributes to a significant percentage of the overall savings. This white paper provides a quantitative TCO analysis of the two architectures, and illustrates the key drivers of both the capex and opex savings of the improved architecture.

Considerations for Owning versus Outsourcing Data Center Physical Infrastructure


When faced with the decision of upgrading an existing data center, building new, or leasing space in a retail colocation data center, there are both quantitative and qualitative differences to consider. The 10-year TCO may favor upgrading or building over outsourcing; however, this paper demonstrates that the economics may be overwhelmed by a business’ sensitivity to cash flow, cash crossover point, deployment timeframe, data center life expectancy, regulatory requirements, and other strategic factors. This paper discusses how to assess these key factors to help make a sound decision.

Securing Edge Data at the Center


Even as enterprises focus relentlessly on consolidation of data centers, they continue to aggressively expand the roles and numbers of branch offices, often located in remote locations that are difficult to support and protect. That poses the issue of how to protect data on the edge of the network, which may be subject to a variety of risks. Data centers are built to secure systems and data, and to help ensure business continuity and recovery after interruptions and disasters. Remote offices, on the other hand, generally lack the protections and defenses typically employed by data centers to keep out the unwanted and those who intend to steal or otherwise harm an organization’s data.

Branch converged infrastructure solutions from Riverbed Technology project data from the data center to remote offices.
