One of the unfortunate effects of the continued evolution of the load balancer into today's application delivery controller (ADC) is that it is often too easy to forget the basic problem for which load balancers were originally created-producing highly available, scalable, and predictable application services. This White Paper describes the Evolution of load balancing devices to Application Delivery Controllers.
Despite its six syllables, 'virtualization' is a straight - forward concept. It can enable your organization to get more value not only from computer and storage hardware but also from the labor required to keep your systems up and running. Virtualization is an approach to pooling and sharing IT resources so the supply of resources—processing power, storage, networking and so on—can flexibly and automatically meet fluctuating business demand. Virtualization can improve the quality of your IT services, enabling more consistency and predictability of operational availability.
According to experts at TrendLabs, spam now makes up close to 95% of all email and continues to grow. In the first three months of 2008 spam rates almost doubled over rates observed at the end of 2007 and TrendLabs predicts that average daily spam volumes will increase by 30 to 50 billion messages per day within the year.1 As spam continues to grow at dramatic rates, traditional on-premise email security products are failing to keep up. This limitation is one of the primary reasons that IDC predicts demand for hosted security solutions -also known as SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions-will grow by more than 30% annually through 2012.2 For context, the growth rate for hosted email security is projected to be more than eight times that of the traditional software email security market, and more than 60% faster than appliance-based email security solutions.

It's difficult to pick up a news report without reading about another data breach or case of identity theft. With so much personal and financial information stored and transmitted electronically, consumers are at greater risk than ever of becoming victims of fraud.
One of the difficulties of managing projects that involve several (perhaps many) organizations is that the group has no pre-established procedures for handling actions that cross organizational boundaries. With no procedures in place, confusion and miscommunication will result, which will lead to unnecessary delays, wasted resources, and potentially even conflict among the organizations.
Customers and business leaders alike demand a great deal of contact centers which cannot easily be met using the simplistic approaches used to develop early, isolated contact centers. In order to provide a top-shelf customer experience, contact centers must adopt sophisticated processes which can evaluate and route calls quickly and effectively to the right agent, and which schedule agents based on their abilities as well as predicted call demand.
Until recently, System i high availability solutions were reserved mostly for large enterprises. Now that high availability is dramatically easier to use and less expensive to own and manage, the picture has changed.

Cooling for IT wiring closets is rarely planned and typically only implemented after failures or overheating occur. Historically, no clear standard exists for specifying sufficient cooling to achieve predictable behavior within wiring closets. An appropriate specification for cooling IT wiring closets should assure compatibility with anticipated loads, provide unambiguous instruction for design and installation of cooling equipment, prevent oversizing, maximize electrical efficiency, and be flexible enough to work in various shapes and types of closets. This paper describes the science and practical application of an improved method for the specification of cooling for wiring closets.
