According to Cisco’s Global Cloud Index (2015), global data centre IP traffic will grow at a CAGR of 25% between 2014 and 2019 and data centre workloads within ‘traditional’ (as opposed to cloud) data centres will more than double.
In this guide you will find best practices to meet the demands of the Digital Economy, with help from DatacenterDynamics and Nexans.

So what lessons can operators learn from the past experience with server virtualization? Beware of merely shifting costs from capital to operating expenditures. Be selective in virtualizing the right resources and functions driven by the business need, and not the technology lure.
Software-defined Networking (SDN) im WAN bietet die Möglichkeit, durch höhere Betriebseffizienz, schnellere Erstellung von Services sowie differenzierte und personalisierte Netzwerk-Services die Kosten zu senken
Gleichzeitig wurden jedoch die Betriebskosten aufgrund komplexeren und arbeitsintensiveren Prozessen in die Höhe getrieben. Teilweise konnten diese Kosten durch vermehrte Integration der Server- und Netzwerkinfrastruktur und erweiterte Funktionalität der Software eingedämmt werden
Las redes definidas por software (SDN) en la WAN permiten reducir los costes gracias al aumento de la eficacia operativa, una mayor velocidad a la hora de crear servicios, y servicios de redes diferenciados y personalizados.
Sin embargo, los costes operativos se dispararon, ya que se necesitó una serie de procesos complejos y laboriosos. Con el tiempo, estos costes se controlaron gracias a una mayor integración de los servidores y la infraestructura de la red, así como a capacidades de software más avanzadas.
This white paper published by Frost & Sullivan and Cisco examines the role, capabilities, and advantages of service providers in the DDoS mitigation process, as well as how this role might develop in the future.
This white paper reveals how Cisco’s Threat-Centric Security Solutions for Service Providers delivers consistent security policy across physical, virtual, and cloud environments by combining the power of open and programmable networks with deep integration of Cisco and third-party security services.

Big data and analytics is a rapidly expanding field of information technology. Big data incorporates technologies and practices designed to support the collection, storage, and management of a wide variety of data types that are produced at ever increasing rates. Analytics combine statistics, machine learning, and data preprocessing in order to extract valuable information and insights from big data.
As BluePearl’s business continues to grow and its strategy evolves, its investment in Cisco® technology is protected. When BluePearl moves to a centralized data center in the near future, all Cisco HyperFlex nodes can still be managed as one integrated infrastructure.
The HX Data Platform uses a self-healing architecture that implements data replication for high availability, remediates hardware failures, and alerts your IT administrators so that problems can be resolved quickly and your business can continue to operate. Space-efficient, pointerbased snapshots facilitate backup operations, and native replication supports cross-site protection. Data-at-rest encryption protects data from security risks and threats. Integration with leading enterprise backup systems allows you to extend your preferred data protection tools to your hyperconverged environment.
Using your allotted resources wisely is admirable. However, have you thought in detail about the real costs associated with using “white box” servers? The Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) delivers advantages, including a lower total cost of ownership (TCO), beyond those that white-box servers can deliver.
Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what you need and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals.
Cisco DNA is the open, software-driven platform that turns vision into reality. Virtualization, automation, analytics, and cloud, all in one architecture.
Encryption technology has enabled much greater privacy and security for enterprises that use the Internet to communicate and transact business online. Mobile, cloud and web applications rely on well-implemented encryption mechanisms, using keys and certificates to ensure security and trust. However, businesses are not the only ones to benefit from encryption.
Cisco has recently unveiled its new intent-based networking strategy, called "The Network. Intuitive." The goal of intent-based networking is to allow greater levels of automation, security integration, and centralized manageability within a software subscription orientation. Intent-based networking is underpinned by Software-Defined Access (SDA), Cisco's automation engine built upon the company's Digital Network Architecture (DNA), which automates network segmentation, policy enforcement, and troubleshooting. Other core components of the announcement include a refresh of Cisco Catalyst switches, a new licensing model for infrastructure, and an all-in-one management console called DNA Center.
IT has the opportunity to completely redefine the role networking plays in the business. But that requires executing on a vision that continuously aligns the network to ever-changing business needs. Fortunately, the right network architectures and supporting technologies required to deliver on that vision are rapidly becoming available. Automation, programmability, self-protecting, and self-healing capabilities move IT away from “keeping the lights on” and provide more time and opportunity to serve as a strategic partner to business initiatives across functional areas.
In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.
In the past, desktops, business apps, and critical infrastructure were all located behind the firewall. Today, more and more is happening off-network. More roaming users. More corporate owned laptops accessing the internet from other networks. More cloud apps, mean that users don’t need to be on the corporate network to get work done. And more branch offices connecting directly to the internet.
