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 interconnectedness of today’s enterprises with on-premises and cloud deployments can cause configuration nightmares for network admins. Cloud VPNs are complex to configure and the costs for access add up quickly. This whitepaper describes how DH2i’s Software Defined Perimeter software, DxOdyssey, can replace the typical VPN structure with one that’s more secure and more resilient to outages.
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.
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.
Wherever your workforce may be, they need access to on-premises or cloud-based company resources like servers, desktops, and applications. VPNs have long been the primary method for connecting users and their resources, but Software Defined Perimeters (SDPs) such as DxOdyssey are increasing in popularity. This whitepaper describes how DH2i’s DxOdyssey software matches up against VPNs for securing connections between resources and their intended users.
Providing High Availability to an organization’s applications is a high-pressure aspect of IT responsibilities. Forcing IT to use a different HA solution for each application further complicates matters while increasing costs. DH2i’s DxEnterprise can consolidate the HA responsibility to a single solution that also monitors for best performance venues and allows better optimization of server and operating system investments.
The popularity of Software Defined Perimeter solutions (SDPs) such as DxOdyssey have risen with respect to the increased security they provide compared to traditional networking methods e.g. VPNs. This whitepaper describes how DH2i’s DxOdyssey software matches up against other SDP vendors for securing connections between users and their resources – wherever they may be.
The cost of downtime could be astronomical for an organization. The tangible costs alone can significantly impact the business. This whitepaper delves into how to minimize both planned and unplanned downtime and how to ensure SQL Server is available to support the business (and help make the IT Department the hero of the company).
