Expanding use of Web 2.0 and Internet-based business applications creates new challenges for businesses that need to keep malicious security breaches from entering their company networks. Next-generation security threats, including Advanced Persistent Threats, are menacing and increasingly difﬁcult to detect. A single data breach could have potentially devastating direct and indirect consequences such as ﬁnes, penalties or law-suits arising from a company’s failure to protect its private and personal customer information according to industry standards. Security breaches also can result in huge ﬁnancial losses and lost revenue as a result of operational downtime, customer turnover, and damage to credibility and reputation.
Sobering reports of network security threats are a constant reminder that the threat landscape has changed and become very complex. One security threat report predicted that cumulative, unique malware samples will have surpassed 75 million by year-end.
What’s behind this surge in malware?
Virtual Private Data Centers
As businesses look for ways to cut costs and as IT professionals are beginning to see a revolution in the way IT solutions are sold, engineered, and delivered, organizations are looking at Cloud-enabled virtual private datacenters as a more efficient, scalable and agile method to deploying applications and other value chain components from a dedicated, secure hosted environment.

When it comes to cloud services, scalability and agility are two of the most attractive benefits for organizations. As your business needs evolve, so does your need for compute power. With our Private Cloud, you have access to an unlimited amount of resources, eliminating expensive IT hardware investments and enabling you to scale (up or down) with ease. You also have full control in order to make necessary upgrades or changes on-demand, resulting in more efficient delivery and better alignment to business demand.

The biggest obstacle to adoption of cloud services has been a lack of confidence in the secure segmentation of cloud-based infrastructure, where servers, networks, and storage are all shared resources. To address this need Broadview Networks, NetApp, and VMware have joined together to develop the CloudCompute vPDC service, hosted across a global network of industry-leading Tier IV Data Centers.
One of the many benefits of virtualizing comes from consolidating multiple, underutilized servers and running them as virtual machines on a single system. You may also find those highly utilized servers no longer have the additional cycles to run a backup agent. With NetApp®, you can run your backups on the storage system and better utilize your servers to run applications
