White Paper: Crystal Group
Information Systems engineered for the tactical community are unique to those designed for fixed datacenters environments and shore commands.
The tactical community has a unique requirement to deliver enterprise-class network capabilities to the war-fighter, while managing resources within a highly-constrained space, weight and power envelope.
This whitepaper provides insights on the evaluation and implementation of the EMC and rugged-based software-defined and converged infrastructure into tactical environments and associated programs of record.
The purposes of this whitepaper are:
To demonstrate a hyper-converged architecture based on EMC software-defined storage solutions and a rugged hardware
To meet the challenges of implementing enterprise services within a virtualized environment in tactical environments and networks
To meet, exceed, and solve the challenges with space, weight, and power (SWaP) for the long-term
Hyper Converged Infrastructures (HCI) brings non-disruptive scaling, reduced complexity, and other benefits, but it requires a stronger data-protection strategy because hyper convergence brings new vulnerabilities. Hyper converged systems are a perfect target-one unique system to encrypt with a built-in replication to spread the malware. For smaller companies with relatively few virtual machines (VMs), a Hyper Converged Infrastructure solution may be the only architecture their data center needs, providing the ultimate simplification. Some critical applications can also be hosted on an HCI, but designing an HCI to meet performance service-level agreements (SLAs) might be challenging compared to designing a more traditional infrastructure. This whitepaper provides insights on data protection basics and its role in Hyper Converged Infrastructure projects. It also explains about how designing an HCI to meet performance service-level agreements (SLAs) might be challenging.

Collecting visitor and customer data through a variety of channels allows you to quickly grow your contact list. However, receiving high quality data isn’t necessarily a given. Whatever your touch points are with customers or prospects – including customer data, contest entry forms, phone surveys, lead generation and point of sale interactions – some data will be inaccurate, incomplete, or fraudulent. So how can your company avoid the challenges associated with bad data? Download this white paper and learn how to identify areas that could benefit from improved data quality, realign your data quality goals to improve your bottom line, optimize your human capital and even help the environment.
