Continuing education is a requirement for license renewal for most architectural, engineering and construction professionals. As your firm makes learning and development plans moving forward, know how to best prepare for a CE audit.
As flash costs continue to drop and new, flash-driven designs help to magnify the compelling economic advantages AFAs offer relative to HDD-based designs, mainstream adoption of AFAs —first for primary storage workloads and then ultimately for secondary storage workloads — will accelerate. Well-designed AFAs that still leverage legacy interfaces like SAS will be able to meet many performance requirements over the next year or two.
Those IT organisations that aim to best position themselves to handle future growth will want to look at next-generation AFA offerings, as the future is no longer flash-optimised architectures (implying that HDD design tenets had to be optimised around) —
it is flash-driven architectures.

Avoid the unreliability and time-consuming limitations of FTP and email. Stop breaking up files and start tracking their status. Increase the speed of transferring proposals, specs and more without sacrificing security.
Cette avancée majeure est attribuable à l'un des principaux innovateurs du marché 100 % flash, Pure Storage. Pure Storage a fait évoluer son architecture afin d'inclure toutes ses fonctionnalités clés de pointe dans une baie d'entrée de gamme, permettant ainsi de démocratiser le stockage 100 % flash et de le rendre accessible à n'importe quelle entreprise. Ce nouveau produit a été baptisé Pure FlashArray//m10.
Les principales architectures de stockage traditionnelles ont été développées il y a plus de 20 ans pour répondre à un paradigme informatique différent. Si elles ont plutôt bien servi leurs clients pendant cette période, elles sont en train de devenir obsolètes, puisque de plus en plus d'organisations adoptent des modèles cloud ou de type cloud. Afin d'optimiser l'efficacité du cloud, le service informatique doit opter pour des architectures de stockage conçues pour le 100 % flash et développées de A à Z pour l'ère du cloud.

Does IT get a lot of questions from users these days? For starters, maybe they want to know why their applications don’t run faster, why they’re having downtime, why their favorite enhancements aren’t top priorities, on and on--why, why, why? Tough questions. You’d love to have the resources to give them positive answers. Of course, that would require beefing up bandwidth and modernizing the network architecture. But the truth is, your paltry budget barely keeps the lights on.
Unprecedented trends are driving enterprise architects and engineers to reconsider their infrastructures. Nemertes reviews some of the design principles leading the way.
Wherever possible, minimize complexity
Automation is key to reducing operational costs
Leverage embedded and integrated security
The constant growth of cloud, IoT, virtualization, mobility, and digital transformation has brought tectonic changes to the world of networking. Long viewed as a bastion of single-purpose, inflexible, and closed solutions, networks have started to transform in line with the demands for flexibility, scalability, ease of management, interoperability, and application support. Networking departments need to achieve all of the tasks above while keeping costs under control. Additionally, security requirements for the new network are not letting up — quite the opposite, as the virtualized network (and general IT) environment requires rethinking, virtualization, and evolution of security architectures.
Mainstream enterprises should start taking advantage of the new capabilities being delivered by software-defined networking architectures. This research identifies a pragmatic roadmap for infrastructure and operations leaders to leverage the benefits associated with SDN.
Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.
Juniper Networks hybrid cloud architecture enables enterprises to build secure, high performance environments across private and public cloud data centers. The easy-tomanage, scalable architecture keeps operational costs down, allowing users to do more with fewer resources.

Organizations are drowning in content. They don't know what they have, and they can't find what they need when they need it. While they spend significant time and money to manage content stored among a host of disconnected systems, their efforts are less than fully effective.
Virtualization continues to grow at 20 percent or more per year, but it is not expected to overtake existing physical architectures at least through 2010. This white paper examines the unique challenges of virtualization and offers tips for its successful management alongside IT's physical deployments.
Tax fraud is already prevalent, and fraudsters are more sophisticated and automated than ever. To get ahead of the game in detecting fraud and protecting revenue, tax agencies need to leverage more advanced and predictive analytics. Legacy processes, systems, and attitudes need not stand in the way. To explore the challenges, opportunities, and value of tax fraud analytics, IIA spoke with Deborah Pianko, a Government Fraud Solutions Architect within the SAS Security Intelligence practice.
