Securing the Unified Virtual Data Center With CA Technologies and Cisco Solutions
Increased agility and massive cost efficiencies from scalable and elastic IT services delivered across the internet is fast becoming the new standard and the basis of business computing. Traditional architectures, platforms, and IT management methods have yet to thrive in the new age of cloud computing and will fall short. Furthermore, as organizations begin to deploy cloud services across massively virtualized data centers, the need for enhanced security models and best practices, including privileged user management and comprehensive auditing will increase. As organizations begin to deploy the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) and combine disparate elements of computing (systems, networks and storage), the opportunity arises to unify disparate elements of IT management to reduce costs, increase efficiencies and mitigate risk.
