Meet Business Demands and Drive IT Innovation

Your IT organization plays a strategic role in business operations. Line-of-business leaders
expect you to deliver innovative new solutions that give the business a competitive advantage.
What new solutions and offerings could you create if you had an agile, flexible IT infrastructure?

Several obstacles stand in your way. Years of operating a siloed, rigid infrastructure force your
IT organization to be more reactive than proactive, making it difficult to proactively anticipate
business needs. Demands for new solutions outpace your organization's ability to respond,
encouraging line-of-business leaders to circumvent IT and go directly to cloud providers to
meet their needs. These shadow IT projects add complexity, risk, and costs to your IT operations.

And, most of your IT budget likely goes to simply maintaining and managing your existing
systems, leaving little room for value-added initiatives.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization IDC

Over the next one to two years, several vendors will release major new versions of their virtualization products that will vastly boost their competitiveness. One such product is Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV), a commercial package of the open source KVM hypervisor and the open source oVirt management tools. Red Hat is a key leader in Linux and open source, and its history of successfully commercializing open source bodes well for KVM and oVirt.

Server and System Admins Challenged to Keep Up with Storage Explosion

The rapid evolution of enterprise storage technologies, combined with external forces, like the explosion of big data, can cause Linux® and server administrators to play catch-up when it comes to storage. Running a bunch of monolithic storage devices and proprietary, disconnected technologies forces administrators to spend valuable time creating and managing complex solutions.

Read this whitepaper to learn how administrators are leveraging their existing skills to simplify the management of storage and servers.

A Modern Approach to the Data Deluge

Modern enterprises require I.T. organizations to become more agile to manage complex physical, virtual, and cloud technologies. I.T. leaders and their organizations must manage this complexity, keep operating costs low, and deliver on ever-increasing SLA expectations. With the rapid growth in unstructured data volumes, I.T. leaders are rethinking how storage is delivered for their organizations.

Read this whitepaper to learn how infrastructure leaders can confidently manage cost, complexity, and risk, capitalize on emerging technologies, and drive future innovation across their organizations with Red Hat Storage Server, an open, software-defined storage platform.

CIOs strive to harness Big Data while keeping an eye on the bottom line

As the economy improves, CIOs must lay the foundation for the next generation of enterprise business growth, and the new battleground is data. Companies focused on transforming themselves into data-driven organizations are seeing increased innovation and improved financial performance. To meet the data challenge, CIOs must create a unified information platform that is highly reliable and scalable, one that makes it easy to access and integrate all data sources across the enterprise.

Running a bunch of monolithic storage devices and proprietary, disconnected technologies forces administrators to spend valuable time creating and managing complex solutions.

To reduce complexity and enable rapid deployment of new technologies and applications, server administrators need a single open and extensible data storage platform. This storage platform must span physical, virtual, and cloud resources to support the various environments they currently manage and to provide a common repository for all unstructured data. Read this whitepaper to learn how administrators are leveraging their existing skills to simplify the management of storage and servers.
