Adapting Hybrid Architectures for Digital Transformation Implementation

Article | August 8, 2022

For the majority of businesses, digital transformation (DX) has emerged as a significant priority. By incorporating digital technologies into all aspects of an organization's operations, digital transformation is a continuous process that alters how organizations operate as well as how they supply goods and services to customers and connect with them. Employing hybrid network infrastructures can aid businesses in putting DX strategies into action. An IT architecture and environment is a hybrid infrastructure that combines on-premises data centers with private or public clouds. Operating systems and applications can be deployed anywhere in this environment, depending on the needs and specifications of the firm. Managing and keeping an eye on an organization's whole IT infrastructure requires the use of hybrid IT infrastructure services, sometimes referred to as cloud services. Given the complexity of IT environments and needs, this is essential for digital transformation. What Does Hybrid Network Infrastructure Have To Offer? Flexibility Companies can employ the appropriate tools for the job, thanks to flexibility. For instance, a business needs access to a lot of data if it wants to use machine learning (ML) or artificial intelligence (AI). Utilizing public cloud services like AWS or Azure can help with this. However, these services might be pricey and not provide the performance required for some applications. Durability Hybrid networks are more tolerant of interruptions. For instance, a business can continue to function if there is a problem with its public cloud by using its private data center. This is due to the fact that the outage in the public cloud has no impact on the private data center. Security Businesses can utilize a hybrid cloud strategy to protect sensitive data while utilizing the resources and services of a public cloud, potentially lowering the chance of crucial information being compromised. While analytics and applications that use data kept in a private environment will probably still need to function in a public cloud, you can use encryption techniques to reduce security breaches. Scalability and Efficiency Traditional networks can't match the performance and scalability of hybrid networks. This is due to the fact that public clouds offer enormous bandwidth and storage that may be used as needed. By using a hybrid architecture, a company can benefit from the public cloud's flexibility and capacity while still keeping its business-critical data and operations in the private cloud or on-premises data center. Conclusion A cultural shift toward more flexible and intelligent ways of conducting business, supported by cutting-edge technology, involves integrating digital technologies throughout all company activities, improving current processes, developing new operational procedures, and offering higher value to clients. Infrastructures for hybrid networks are necessary for the success of digital transformation.

Network Security: The Safety Net in the Digital World

Article | July 16, 2022

Every business or organization has spent a lot of time and energy building its network infrastructure. The right resources have taken countless hours to establish, ensuring that their network offers connectivity, operation, management, and communication. Their complex hardware, software, service architecture, and strategies are all working for optimum and dependable use. Setting up a security strategy for your network requires ongoing, consistent work. Therefore, the first step in implementing a security technique is to do so. The underlying architecture of your network should consider a range of implementation, upkeep, and continuous active procedures. Network infrastructure security requires a comprehensive strategy that includes best practices and continuing procedures to guarantee that the underlying infrastructure is always safe. A company's choice of security measures is determined by: Appropriate legal requirements Rules unique to the industry The specific network and security needs Security for network infrastructure has numerous significant advantages. For example, a business or institution can cut expenses, boost output, secure internal communications, and guarantee the security of sensitive data. Hardware, software, and services are vital, but they could all have flaws that unintentional or intentional acts could take advantage of. Security for network infrastructure is intended to provide sophisticated, comprehensive resources for defense against internal and external threats. Infrastructures are susceptible to assaults like denial-of-service, ransomware, spam, and illegal access. Implementing and maintaining a workable security plan for your network architecture can be challenging and time-consuming. Experts can help with this crucial and continuous process. A robust infrastructure lowers operational costs, boosts output, and protects sensitive data from hackers. While no security measure will be able to prevent all attack attempts, network infrastructure security can help you lessen the effects of a cyberattack and guarantee that your business is back up and running as soon as feasible.

Data Center as a Service Is the Way of the Future

Article | July 6, 2022

Data Center as a Service (DCaaS) is a hosting service that gives clients access to actual data center infrastructure and amenities. Through a Wide-Area Network, DCaaS enables clients to remotely access the provider's storage, server, and networking capabilities (WAN). Businesses can tackle their on-site data center's logistical and financial issues by outsourcing to a service provider. Many enterprises rely on DCaaS to overcome the physical constraints of their on-site infrastructure or to offload the hosting and management of non-mission-critical applications. Businesses that require robust data management solutions but lack the necessary internal resources can adopt DCaaS. DCaaS is the perfect answer for companies that are struggling with a lack of IT help or a lack of funding for system maintenance. Added benefits data Center as a Service allows businesses to be independent of their physical infrastructure: A single-provider API Data centers without Staff Effortlessly handle the influx of data Data centers in regions with more stable climates Data Center as a Service helps democratize the data center itself, allowing companies that could never afford the huge investments that have gotten us this far to benefit from these developments. This is perhaps the most important, as Infrastructure-as-a-Service enables smaller companies to get started without a huge investment. Conclusion Data center as a service (DCaaS) enables clients to access a data center remotely and its features, whereas data center services might include complete management of an organization's on-premises infrastructure resources. IT can be outsourced using data center services to manage an organization's network, storage, computing, cloud, and maintenance. The infrastructure of many businesses is outsourced to increase operational effectiveness, size, and cost-effectiveness. It might be challenging to manage your existing infrastructure while keeping up with the pace of innovation, but it's critical to be on the cutting edge of technology. Organizations may stay future-ready by working with a vendor that can supply DCaaS and data center services.

Enhancing Rack-Level Security to Enable Rapid Innovation

Article | July 6, 2022

IT and data center administrators are under pressure to foster quicker innovation. For workers and customers to have access to digital experiences, more devices must be deployed, and larger enterprise-to-edge networks must be managed. The security of distributed networks has suffered as a result of this rapid growth, though. Some colocation providers can install custom locks for your cabinet if necessary due to the varying compliance standards and security needs for distinct applications. However, physical security measures are still of utmost importance because theft and social engineering can affect hardware as well as data. Risk Companies Face Remote IT work continue on the long run Attacking users is the easiest way into networks IT may be deploying devices with weak controls When determining whether rack-level security is required, there are essentially two critical criteria to take into account. The first is the level of sensitivity of the data stored, and the second is the importance of the equipment in a particular rack to the facility's continuing functioning. Due to the nature of the data being handled and kept, some processes will always have a higher risk profile than others. Conclusion Data centers must rely on a physically secure perimeter that can be trusted. Clients, in particular, require unwavering assurance that security can be put in place to limit user access and guarantee that safety regulations are followed. Rack-level security locks that ensure physical access limitations are crucial to maintaining data center space security. Compared to their mechanical predecessors, electronic rack locks or "smart locks" offer a much more comprehensive range of feature-rich capabilities.

City of Williamsburg Selects Auvik to Modernize IT Infrastructure

Auvik Networks | June 08, 2022

Auvik, an award-winning provider of cloud-based network management software, today announced it has been working with the City of Williamsburg, Virginia to provide network monitoring and asset management services for automated, real-time network visibility. Williamsburg is one of Virginia’s oldest municipalities and one of the U.S.’ most popular historical destinations, renowned for its preservation of American colonial history. In addition to the city’s year-round residents the region receives an average of 1.5 million visitors per year. Ensuring superior digital service delivery is important for this bustling city, but with limited resources, Williamsburg’s IT Department had traditionally relied on basic tools like spreadsheets to log and track configuration changes, device statuses, and details of available IT assets. With zero visibility into their networks, the team had to spend hours to find the root causes behind any network issues. As part of the City Council’s Williamsburg of 2040 initiative, the IT Department was tasked with modernizing its infrastructure in order to better support the Williamsburg community and its vital tourism industry. Specifically, the IT team needed a solution that could automate many of its manual network management processes and provide real-time network visibility, so it could resolve issues quickly. “Network uptime is critical since it’s tied to so many services provided by the city, such as emergency services, citizen communications, public health access, tourism and recreation, and other aspects of daily business and citizen engagement. “By implementing Auvik, we’ve drastically reduced the amount of time spent on manually identifying and addressing network issues - improving network reliability and freeing our team up for more value-driven activities. Auvik has proven itself to be a life-saver many times over for us.” Mark Barham, Director of Information Technology, City of Williamsburg Prior to its work with Auvik, the IT team relied on support tickets for any network requests or incidents. Then, they’d have to go through lines of code for multiple devices, and refer to manual documentation to resolve the issue. With Auvik, Williamsburg has automated network inventory and documentation processes, resulting in cost and time savings and more optimized IT resources. Additionally, with improved network visibility, the IT team has not only been able to speed up troubleshooting but proactively mitigate network and device issues before they become a problem, with a streamlined troubleshooting process with a set of 50 proactive alerts and in-depth visibility. “Williamsburg may be the oldest municipality in Virginia, but the Williamsburg of today still requires a modern IT infrastructure,” said Marc Morin, CEO and co-founder, Auvik. “We’re proud to work with state and local governments like the City of Williamsburg to help achieve their digital transformation goals and deliver on the digital services citizens have come to expect in the 21st century.” About Auvik Networks Auvik makes network management easier.
