Whitepaper: Data Management Decisions: Five Direct Questions

by Peak 10, Inc.Mar 24, 2014

Peak 10 supports Microsoft® Windows Server.

The market is full of buzz about cloud computing, and with it come sweeping claims about simplicity and savings. Deciding to migrate some or all database management to a cloud hosting provider, however, is a more complex undertaking than conventional wisdom may suggest.

This paper addresses five primary questions posed by technology leaders as they assess their data management options. We address the true cost of a hosted data storage strategy; safety and security issues; access to peak period resources; data latency concerns; and the value of quality consultative and technical support.


Whitepaper: Strategy, Security, Savings and Service - A Case for Managing Data Differently

by Peak 10, Inc.Mar 24, 2014

Peak 10 supports Microsoft® Windows Server.

This paper outlines principal considerations and evaluation tactics for technology professionals contemplating a migration of their databases to a cloud platform. Primary decision factors can be characterized as the "four S" considerations:

• Strategy, or the need for a prudent, often gradual, migration plan, which may feature a public, private, or hybrid cloud solution;
• Security, from HADR (high availability/disaster recovery) capabilities to safeguard against malicious attack;
• Savings, or a cost-benefit advantage; and a
• Service dimension that inspires confidence.

Many cloud hosting providers have achieved ticket-of-entry credibility in the data warehousing industry by building simple colocation centers. A first-tier database as a service (DBaaS) contender, however, is set apart by a value-added service approach that is strategic, consultative and responsive. A first-tier provider also offers state-of-theart technology, like Microsoft SQL Server 2012, and commits to a product roadmap that expands their customers' capabilities. Blending conscientious service, strategic insight and highly reliable technology is the way to earn customer confidence.


Whitepaper: Benefits of a Virtualized Data Center

by Peak 10, Inc.Apr 01, 2009

One of the hottest trends in the IT industry today, server virtualization has its roots in the IBM mainframe world of the 1960s, had a rebirth in the late '90s, and finally came of age in 2007. Since that coming of age, the market penetration of server virtualization is staggering. On one end of the spectrum, nearly 100 percent of Fortune 1000 companies are using virtualization technologies on production systems. On the opposite end of the spectrum, virtual utility hosts and cloud computing vendors are springing up to cost-effectively support smaller companies, even those that require only a single server. Everyone is virtualizing, but why?
