Whitepaper: Building & Managing A Private Cloud: 6 Important Questions

by RedhatSep 22, 2014

Every year, more government workloads move to the cloud as agencies realize the cost, scalability, and manageability benefits that the cloud offers. The vast majority of those workloads take advantage of private clouds - dedicated clouds or secure segments of clouds that provide the highest level of security and control. According to IDC Government, private clouds dominate in federal government, with billions spent so far. We talked to cloud experts at Red Hat about the best way to choose, implement, and manage a private cloud.

Whitepaper: Fight Cyber Crime with Splunk, Cisco, and Red Hat

by RedhatAug 24, 2014

The cost of cyber crime across the globe has already grown to $100 billion annually, not counting the intangible damage to enterprise and government security. In addition to the data loss and security breach, there is immeasurable, and sometimes irrevocable, damage to the brand.

Analyzing machine data from firewalls and perimeter devices in real time to thwart - and predict - threats is the only defense for most institutions. However, the amount of data to be stored and analyzed results in prohibitive cost when constrained by the rigidity of proprietary storage platforms.

In addition, the lack of granularity in the machine data analytics available to IT and security administrators results in too much data and not enough information. This puts enterprises at great risk especially considering the regulatory compliance mandates on security.

Whitepaper: Scale-out File Sync and Share

by RedhatAug 24, 2014

File sync and share capabilities are now considered essential by an increasingly mobile and productive work force. While consumer-grade, cloud-based file sync and share solutions often provide a convenient data storage medium, they are outside of corporate control and data policies, and represent a serious concern for enterprise IT departments. To address these shortcomings, ownCloud, Red Hat, and HP have worked together to provide a cost-effective and scalable file sync and share solution that is deployed on-premise, and managed by the enterprise. With ownCloud and Red Hat Storage Server consolidated on compact high-performance HP ProLiant SL4540 Gen8 two-node servers, organizations can scale their private file sync and share solutions with the ease of use of a public cloud.

Whitepaper: A Modern Approach to the Data DelUge

by RedhatAug 24, 2014

From physical to virtual to cloud, I.T. organizations have adopted increasingly complex technologies as their enterprises demand greater agility. It's left to I.T. leaders and their organizations to manage this complexity, keeping operating costs low while delivering on ever-increasing SLA expectations. With the rapid growth in unstructured data volumes, I.T. organizations are turning their attention to storage to eliminate costs and inefficiencies while increasing performance, security, and reliability.

Whitepaper: Standardizing Operating Environments for I.T. Efficiency

by RedhatJun 01, 2014

The Red Hat Standard Operating Environment SOE helps you define, deploy, and maintain Red Hat Enterprise Linux and third-party applications as an SOE. The SOE is fully aligned with your requirements as an effective and managed process, and fully integrated with your IT environment and processes.

Benefits of an SOE: SOE is a specification for a tested, standard selection of computer hardware, software, and their configuration for use on computers within an organization. The modular nature of the Red Hat SOE lets you select the most appropriate solutions to address your business’ IT needs.

SOE leads to:
• Dramatically reduced deployment time.
• Software deployed and configured in a standardized manner.
• Simplified maintenance due to standardization.
• Increased stability and reduced support and management costs.

There are many benefits to having an SOE within larger environments, such as:
• Less total cost of ownership (TCO) for the IT environment.
• More effective support.
• Faster deployment times.
• Standardization.

Whitepaper: Doing More with Less: How Red Hat Enterprise Linux Shrinks Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO)

by RedhatJun 01, 2014

IT organizations face the constant challenge of juggling two almost opposing priorities: continuously delivering business-critical application services while keeping IT expenses in line with budget constraints. The primary function of IT departments is to supply core infrastructure and applications to attract new business, generate revenue, and facilitate profitability-and IT managers strive to meet this goal in spite of flat or shrinking IT budgets.

According to an article in Computer Weekly, approximately 80% of IT expenses are spent on maintenance and support for the existing infrastructure. Beyond maintaining current platforms and mission-critical applications, IT must also address new mandates, such as reporting requirements for regulatory compliance or corporate "green" IT initiatives. In addition, IT managers must allocate budget to tackle emerging strategic initiatives that are needed for future success.
