Mid-sized businesses have long struggled to protect their IT systems. Many firms are inadequately protected and mistakenly think that a disaster is rare and won’t happen to them anytime soon. This custom Yankee Group Report uses customer interviews, statistical data and Yankee Group SMB survey results to examine disaster recovery (DR) issues.

Most storage devices support multiple SAN connections for performance and reliability, but in many configurations servers use only a single storage connection. This creates a single point of failure and potential performance bottleneck for I/O. Multipath Input/Output (MPIO) is server software that extends redundancy to the entire I/O pathway in a SAN, delivering fault tolerance, high availability, and better performance.

System reliability is a vital component in Storage Area Network (SAN) design that keeps your production environment operating and avoids data loss and downtime. But since SANs are built using both mechanical and electronic parts, component failures due to usage, environmental factors, or manufacturing defects are not uncommon. Even in completely redundant systems, controllers can fail, fans can stop operating, power supplies can burn out, and disk drives can degrade or fail.

The importance of data processing in today’s business environment is increasing and it is clear that business operations must be secured against every possible contingency to provide continuous uptime. Business continuity is not just concerned with IT infrastructure and data processing, it also includes manual and automatic IT systems with the human involvement. This white paper explains how HP StorageWorks XP for Business Continuity Manager (BCM) Software makes sure that all processes within the data-handling procedures are automated in such a way that in the event of a failure or unplanned disruption, business operations can continue with minimal interruption.

If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement:  Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow.  Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.

Whether we like it or not we are all IT users now. Through the ubiquity of networks of devices that we rely on for information, security and day-to-day transactions even those who eschew technology now rely on it, even if they do not acknowledge it. The failure of these networks can lead to widespread disruption, unhappy customers, unproductive employees and lost business. Ensuring their availability, security and efficiency is a job for experts who need powerful tools to carry out the task.

Establishing an ESB is essential in delivering a Service-Oriented Architecture. But for an SOA to be effective, you’ll also need your ESB to recover quickly from unexpected hardware and software failures. Clustering can help by enabling your systems to operate in parallel, so that if one should fail, those remaining can seamlessly step in.

The people in your organization have access to volumes of information that was once unimaginable. Success or failure can hinge on whether or not people can use this information to make wise decisions quickly. But without the ability to make sense of information, a knowledge gap exists, and the best anyone can do is guess or follow a hunch. Business intelligence helps you decipher and extract meaning from data so you can make informed decisions.

Projects to implement ERP tend to be difficult, expensive and drawn-out. They are often full of painful surprises and overrun budgets and schedules that were extravagant in the first place. They fail entirely in an alarming number of cases.  Why this should be so is not immediately apparent. If we list, at a fairly high level, the tasks required to implement an ERP system in a company that’s already familiar with ERP practices, what we see is a significant but not daunting amount of work.

ERP system acquisition projects are rarely deemed to fail.  All the well-advertised failures come later, during implementation and afterward.  Nevertheless, the seeds of these failures are invariably planted in the earliest stages of ERP acquisition planning.

Cooling for IT wiring closets is rarely planned and typically only implemented after failures or overheating occur. Historically, no clear standard exists for specifying sufficient cooling to achieve predictable behavior within wiring closets. An appropriate specification for cooling IT wiring closets should assure compatibility with anticipated loads, provide unambiguous instruction for design and installation of cooling equipment, prevent oversizing, maximize electrical efficiency, and be flexible enough to work in various shapes and types of closets. This paper describes the science and practical application of an improved method for the specification of cooling for wiring closets.

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) can benefit from the expansive use of information technology (IT) just as much as their larger counterparts. Indeed, in many cases they have to, because to trade they need to interact with business partners of all sizes and IT failure affects not just internal users but those of third parties.
