In a market where compute and storage resources can be bought on demand with a credit card, vendors of on-premises hardware are seeking to tip the scales in their favor with ‘cloud-like’ pricing models that eliminate the need to commit capital to new platforms. At Dell EMC World in May, Dell Financial Services (DFS) rolled out Cloud Flex for HCI (hyperconverged infrastructure), part of the company’s push to evangelize the start-small-and-scale-up virtues of HCI technology. Cloud Flex lets customers acquire equipment on an all-opex basis, with no up-front product cost, steady monthly payments that reduce by up to 30% annually, and the ability to turn in equipment any time after 12 months without penalty. It’s part of a series of moves by Dell EMC meant to ease the financial risk of sticking with on-premises infrastructure in a cloud-enabled world

As with most innovations in business information technology, the ultimate truth about cloud lies somewhere in between. There is little doubt that cloud-based infrastructures offer an immediate opportunity for smaller organizations to avoid the costly investment needed for a robust on-premises computing environment. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without investing in any local hardware. Large organizations with mature on-premises computing infrastructures are looking to Hadoop platforms to help them benefit from the vast array of structured and unstructured data from cloud-based sources. Organizations have feet in both cloud and on-premises worlds. In fact, one could easily argue that we already live in a “hybrid” world.

After Minnesota rolled out a cloud-based set of productivity tools that included instant messaging and video, growth among state agency users quadrupled and the number of cross-agency messages and videos increased by nearly 350,000 in just 2 years. There is a large-scale shift underway across the country where hardware infrastructure, platforms and software are being unbundled and moved out of government’s traditional area of operation. Download the thought leadership paper to learn more about what this shift entails, the benefits it will bring and how CIOs can prepare for its impact.

Increasing power demands and space limitations in the data center have begun to transition server virtualization technologies from luxuries to necessities. Server virtualization provides a path toward server consolidation that results in significant power and space savings, while also offering high availability and system portability. Today, vendors are building hardware and software platforms that can deliver virtualization solutions at near-native performance.

Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time – but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server "footprint" size and overall electrical requirements, resulted in significant reductions in ongoing costs, or opex, per 100 end users supported.

Safety certification for avionics hardware and software is an expensive, complicated process, but absolutely necessary to ensure safe skies for commercial aircraft passengers and military jets flying in the national airspace. Now unmanned aircraft flight critical electronics will also have to meet these same safety requirements as the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) starts to open up the national airspace to unmanned aerial systems (UASs). While the rules are still being drawn up, embedded software and hardware designers are already looking at ways for UAS platform integrators to solve certification challenges and manage the process of compliance with safety certification standards such as DO-178B & C. This webcast of industry experts will discuss how to enable safety certification of UAS platforms through efficient and cost-effective solutions.

Just “keeping the lights on” in the server room is highly complex and largely inefficient. Maintaining IT infrastructure, system interdependencies, and application interoperability tie up valuable personnel and resources. The old way of simply throwing more hardware capacity at a problem can only serve to increase the complexity and further dampen productivity. In a perfect world, the infrastructure—hardware and software—would have been built as an integrated but scalable unit from the ground up. In our world, though, the best new systems combine independent pieces of IT infrastructure to form simplified computing platforms, freeing up IT to focus on business innovation rather than infrastructure management. Welcome to the new world of IT.
