There is an increasing trend towards N+1 UPS architectures - rather than 2N - as IT fault tolerance through software continues to improve. There are two common ways N+1 can be achieved.In this paper, we quantify key tradeoffs between an internal "modular" redundant UPS and parallel redundant UPSs, and show a 27% capital cost savings and a 1-2 week decrease in deployment time when internal redundancy is deployed. We also discuss the importance of fault tolerance within the UPS to ensure availability, reliability, and maintainability needs are met.
Businesses of all sizes are hit by ransomware attacks every day. A recent ZDNet article shows that damages related to ransomware attacks will reach $1 billion this year. Don't miss "How to protect your organization from ransomware." Join CBS Interactive's Distinguished Lecturer David Gewirtz, one of America's leading cybersecurity experts, and security researcher and advocate Brook Chelmo, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Dell SonicWALL, in a lively discussion about how to protect your IT ecosystem even if you're not a security expert.
Today's security threats have expanded in their scope and seriousness. There can now be millions -- or even billions -- of dollars at risk when information security isn't handled properly. And beyond that, cybersecurity will define many of the international conflicts of the future.
