Why digital transformation is influencing storage decisions

As enterprises evolve to more data-centric business models, undergo digital transformation initiatives, and deem more workloads mission-critical, data availability requirements, like RTOs and RPOs, are becoming even more stringent.

As a result, storage requirements are shifting, also.

The following IDC paper digs into the dynamics of how digital transformation and demands for higher data availability are influencing storage decisions, as well as the methods organizations are employing to meet these expectations.

 

Read on to use the guidance herein to help your organization improve its data availability.

  • Modernize the distributed enterprise network with SD-WAN

    Cloud applications are changing everything, even the way enterprise networks are structured. Interactive apps like Office 365 require fast, direct connections to the Internet—which often overload traditional “hub-and-spoke” networks.

    SD-WAN, on the other hand, is designed to simplify the management of direct-to-cloud broadband connections, enabling you to:

    • Ensure always-on availability of every site
    • Optimize application and network performance
    • Leverage cost savings over MPLS
    • Change connection configurations, policies and software in minutes

    Find out how you can get secure enterprise-class SD-WAN that you can operate from a single console in this white paper. 

  • How to become a cybersecurity trailblazer

    A characteristic of a cybersecurity trailblazer is an understanding that security must be intrinsic across all levels of the business— from technology to processes to people and culture.

    Those that adopt this mindset are also more aligned to business objectives, and security plays an important role in business growth.

    Read on to find suggestions for improving your enterprises’ security posture, based on lessons learned from the cybersecurity trailblazers and executives interviewed for this report.
