Before the pandemic took full swing in early 2020, few people were working remotely. Now, around 40% of the workforce is working from home, heightening the use of VPN technology for remote access. This report uncovers the top challenges of VPNs that are driving the movement towards holistic Software Defined Perimeter solutions.
Security in today’s world is one of the most challenging hurdles for organizations to overcome, especially with the explosion of hybrid cloud deployments, remote workers and IoT devices. This whitepaper showcases how DH2i’s secure connectivity software, DxConnect and DxOdyssey, can simplify your datacenter while also making it resilient to attacks.
The emerging adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to be a game-changer for businesses across all industries. Though it promises many new business opportunities, there are common security challenges that arise with IoT adoption. This whitepaper explores edge security and the end-to-end IoT data security provided by the combined solution of Azure SQL Edge and DxOdyssey for IoT.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is redefining the contemporary data environment as businesses push towards the implementation of IoT devices and as the growth of smart cities is on the rise. This whitepaper details the drawbacks that come with traditional solutions like VPNs and showcases how our DxOdyssey software overcomes traditional solutions for IoT networking.
This whitepaper shows how DH2i’s DxEnterprise software containerizes existing Windows Server application services, file shares or SQL Server instances, decoupling them from a bare-metal server, virtual machine or cloud server.
SQL Server High Availability on Linux on Azure with DH2i – By Joey D’Antoni, Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting
Microsoft introduced SQL Server on Linux, allowing organizations to get the benefits of SQL Server’s powerful database engine. Traditional tools were not built around database workloads, leaving many challenges in the way of SQL Server clustering on Linux and on Microsoft’s Azure platform. In this whitepaper, Joey D’Antoni details the benefits of DxEnterprise software and outlines the steps to deploy DxEnterprise within the same subnet as well as across networks.
Microsoft recently filled a major gap in the cloud computing market by releasing Azure shared disks – the industry’s first cloud block storage. Read this whitepaper to learn about the challenges with cloud deployments and alternative solutions, as well as learn how to build highly available SQL Server instances in Azure with Azure shared disks and DxEnterprise.
In this whitepaper, I’ll review how to use DxEnterprise to create simple-to-manage, simple-to-deploy, high availability and disaster recovery solutions. In the process, I will show how it supports datacenter orchestration, letting you quickly and easily migrate SQL Server instances from one hardware platform to another with little downtime, while upgrading the operating system (OS), SQL Server, or server infrastructure. Overall, based on what I’ve seen, I expect that DxEnterprise can significantly help with datacenter costs and uptime…
This ESG Lab review documents hands-on testing of DH2i’s DxEnterprise software with a focus on application and services consolidation while highlighting the added benefits of flexibility, automation, mobility, and availability offered in a Windows environment.
“The problem is that I need to manage Windows and Linux clusters across my organization, so my team not only needs to know SQL Server but also numerous versions of Windows and Linux. I also face constraints with both Windows and Linux in terms of setup and deployment. For example, the configuration and management for each cluster is different, which is a steep learning curve for my team. How can I simplify the management of my SQL Server Availability Groups?”
Enterprises deploying SQL Server for Linux need a way to ensure their instances are highly available, and must look to the 3rd party ecosystem for those capabilities. This whitepaper describes how DH2i’s DxEnterprise software manages new or existing SQL Server instances or containers on the Linux platform–giving users the built-in smart availability they need for SQL Server on Linux.
Enterprises deploying SQL Server Availability Groups need a way to ensure they are highly available, and on Linux they must look to a 3rd party for those capabilities – most commonly, Pacemaker. This whitepaper describes how DH2i’s DxEnterprise software matches up against Pacemaker for managing new or existing SQL Server AGs on the Linux platform.
