Top Server Strategies to Ease Cloud Migration

by Patrick Renzi | 07.07.15

Transforming IT

Transform IT from Cost Center to Value-Add

Migrate from Windows Server 2003 to Turn the Tables

by Clive Anthony | 06.24.15

Unless you’ve been living in a bunker you probably know that July 14, 2015 brings the end of all support for Windows Server 2003. That means the end of support for the servers and applications that millions of businesses rely on every single day. At particular risk from this event are small to medium-sized organizations. They often lack formal IT departments, and those with IT staff are constantly struggling with shrinking (or flat) IT budgets. Not very high on the IT buying agenda is spending money on fixing something that doesn’t appear broken.

What to Look for in a Data Center Partner

Make the Most of Cloud and Virtualization Innovations

by Kevin O'Connor | 12.30.14

Every organization is searching for ways to reduce the costs and complexity of running a data center. Nearly all IT operations look first to the technology they want to use to address that challenge. Few organizations look first to leverage a partner for that journey. The demands on IT seem to be increasing every day—everyone wants everything on demand, without having to wait for it and in accordance with the governance, risk, and compliance requirements that their organization must adhere to. To address those challenges and to offload some or all of that work, organizations are increasingly turning to the cloud and hyper-virtualized IT infrastructures. VMware has been leading the way in delivering innovative products to solve these challenges—and at Connection, our team is working closely with VMware and our clients to realize these outcomes. Read on to learn more about how you can benefit from making the first step of your journey in partnership with Connection.
