The Secure Data Center is a place in the network (PIN) where a company centralizes data and performs services for business. Data centers contain hundreds to thousands of physical and virtual servers that are segmented by applications, zones, and other methods. This guide addresses data center business flows and the security used to defend them. The Secure Data Center is one of the six places in the network within SAFE. SAFE is a holistic approach in which Secure PINs model the physical infrastructure and Secure Domains represent the operational aspects of a network.

For more and more organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements. In fact, hybrid cloud is the new norm for IT. IDC says more than 80% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud by 20171, and 70% of IT decision-makers say they will always have a mix of traditional IT and cloud architectures.2 With important applications and workloads architected across both on-premises and hybrid, public and private cloud environments, business and IT stakeholders must be able to access data with equal efficiency, reliability and speed—regardless of physical location, infrastructure type or time frame.

CA's vision is to unify and simplify the management of enterprise-wide IT. The rapidly growing use of virtualization and clustering in enterprise infrastructures provides a rich environment for increasing complexity. Unlike physically bounded infrastructures, the logical entities in virtualized and clustered environments are not visually apparent. Nevertheless, one needs to know what resources one has and if one is using those resources to their fullest capacity.

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos. Protecting these virtualized environments, however, and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-prem secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The increasing pressure on IT teams to maintain business continuity and information governance are changing how businesses view infrastructure resiliency and long-term data retention—they are consequently looking to new solutions to ensure immediate availability and complete protection of the

Many organizations have adopted virtualization as a standard for server workloads. But virtualization has not proven to be the “game changer” many organizations had envisioned. IT departments face huge challenges related to server sprawl, which has actually increased with virtualization. Although virtualization has brought benefits beyond the physical paradigm of one operating system per server, the true optimal infrastructure for organizations comes with adopting a private cloud infrastructure. Check out this white paper to learn the benefits of a private cloud and discover how deploying one private cloud solution can provide: Consolidated resources Flexible services Easy provisioning of new environments And more

Intelligent N+X Redundancy, Placement Affinities, & Future Proofing in the Virtualized Data Center Virtualization brought about the ability to simplify business continuity management in IT. Workload portability and data replication capabilities mean that physical infrastructure failures no longer need impact application services, and they can rapidly be recovered even in the event of complete site failure. However, Enterprises and Service Providers face new challenges ensuring they have enough compute capacity in their virtualized data centers to support their business continuity requirements, while at the same time not over provisioning infrastructure capacity resulting in unnecessary capital expenditure.

An Intelligent Roadmap for Capacity Planning Many organizations apply overly simplistic principles to determine requirements for compute capacity in their virtualized data centers. These principles are based on a resource allocation model which takes the total amount of memory and CPU allocated to all virtual machines in a compute cluster, and assumes a defined level of over provisioning (e.g. 2:1, 4:1, 8:1, 12:1) in order to calculate the requirement for physical resources. Often managed in spreadsheets or simple databases, and augmented by simple alert-based monitoring tools, the resource allocation model does not account for actual resource consumption driven by each application workload running in the operational environment, and inherently corrodes the level of efficiency that can be driven from the underlying infrastructure.

The ongoing struggle to prevent hackers from breaching assets and malware from gaining a foothold requires a vulnerability management strategy that begins with a comprehensive measurement of security risk. Organizations must examine the entire IT stack, including the operating system, network, applications, and databases. These new technologies include dynamic, virtualized environments and services outside traditional physical IT infrastructures, such as virtualized, cloud-based services and social networking.

Breaking the link between access devices and virtual desktops (VDI) in a data center provides numerous benefits including cost efficiency and access transparency regardless of a user’s physical location. However, as more organizations move away from a physical desktop to VDI, they must decide whether they should build it themselves or purchase an all-in-one cloud service. This white paper highlights the benefits of using a managed desktop cloud service that provides infrastructural support while reducing infrastructure and operational costs. Access now to discover how other organizations are saving money by utilizing a managed cloud service.

IT virtualization, the engine behind cloud computing, can have significant consequences on the data center physical infrastructure (DCPI). Higher power densities that often result can challenge the cooling capabilities of an existing system. Reduced overall energy consumption that typically results from physical server consolidation may actually worsen the data center’s power usage effectiveness (PUE). Dynamic loads that vary in time and location may heighten the risk of downtime if rack-level power and cooling health are not understood and considered. Finally, the fault-tolerant nature of a highly virtualized environment could raise questions about the level of redundancy required in the physical infrastructure. These particular effects of virtualization are discussed and possible solutions or methods for dealing with them are offered.
