The Sky's the Limit for Eclipse Aerospace and VCE
Faced with years of advanced aerospace design and manufacturing intellectual property sitting in deteriorating computer rooms, Eclipse Aerospace turned to VCE Vblock™ Systems to create an agile, easy-to-maintain virtualized environment. This case study highlights how Eclipse was able to unlock critical IP, support business growth, dial up or down resources without having to worry about capacity or performance, as well as reduce power, AC and space costs.
Implementing Agile Systems Management in Cloud and Virtual Infrastructure
Existing enterprise management applications are preventing organizations from fully realizing the benefits of the cloud. Server monitoring, configuration and patch management, and security monitoring were never designed for the massive scale and dynamic nature of private, public and hybrid clouds. Discover how virtualizing the management layer, by de-coupling agents from the underlying server infrastructure, eliminates the need to install physical agents on servers and makes ongoing management tasks such as provisioning and updating agents as simple as copying a single "virtual agent" file to all required servers.
Monitor Application Performance in Virtualized and Cloud Environments

OVUM Case Study: Adoption of Dell Boomi AtomSphere iPaaS
Novartis needed a suitable alternative to two on-premise middleware solutions that were expensive to maintain, and lacked the required flexibility. Discover how a shift to Dell Boomi AtomSphere integration PaaS (iPaaS) helped reduce development efforts and delivered significant cost savings.
How iPaaS Supports Today's Hybrid IT Environments
Discover the benefits of Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) in this informative white paper. Find out how it's superior to typical middleware solutions - especially in regards to cost and agility - and how it can increase your business success within a hybrid IT environment.
Virtualization Security Is Not an Oxymoron
An overwhelming majority of organizations have adopted virtualized servers and those numbers are on the rise. While the business benefits of virtualization are clear--increased performance and stability and decreased hardware costs, floor space, and management oversight--the virtualized world makes your organization vulnerable to a wide array of new cybersecurity threats. Are you willing to bet your organization's IT infrastructure on your ability to combat these hazards?
The IT security and virtualization experts at Kasperky Lab have created this resource to help you learn:
* How to enjoy the advantages of virtualization while avoiding the security risks
* When you should introduce cybersecurity into your virtualization installation process (Hint: the earlier the better)
* The benefits of an agentless security solution and how to sell it internally

Vblock™ is Cornerstone of New In-House IT Operation for Canadian Pacific Railways
As part of this sweeping transformation, Canadian Pacific Railways (CP) took a fresh look at its outsourced IT and decided to bring the entire operation in-house. After evaluating various options, CP chose Vblock™ Systems from VCE to virtualize its extensive suite of business-critical SAP applications and other business solutions. Read how CP has dramatically improved system-wide operations and customer responsiveness while reducing IT costs.
SAP on Vblock™ Systems
Customers who virtualize SAP benefit from improved performance, lower TCO, and improved application availability. VCE, in partnership with SAP, is leading the way with virtual SAP landscapes. Vblock™ Systems offer a factory-integrated, enterprise-class IT infrastructure that streamlines acquisition, deployment, and operations. Strict design control enables Vblock Systems to meet specific performance and availability levels so that IT can easily meet business requirements as environments scale. Customers who previously spent 70% or more of their IT budgets and staff time on maintaining infrastructure now can focus on more strategic efforts that add more value to the business.
Seeding Clouds on Power Systems with IBM SmartCloud Entry
Although many organizations recognize the benefits of private clouds, they may need to progress gradually to sophisticated cloud deployments. IBM® SmartCloud™ Entry on IBM Power Systems™ servers fills this need for a scaled-down cloud solution. It leverages PowerVM virtualization software to enable quick and easy deployment of private clouds.
Security for Virtualization
Few of us would dispute that virtualization makes good business sense. However, the view of leading analysts is that in the rush to implement virtualization, security has become a poor second. So while the business benefits are clear, the risks are less well documented and understood. This makes selecting the right virtual-aware anti-malware solution even more important.
