The demand for (and benefits of) web-based interfaces combined with an increasingly mobile and distributed workforce has exposed inefficiencies inherent in the browser, the network and its protocols, and the data center. These inefficiencies create performance problems for applications that continue to be magnified by emerging technologies like Web 2.0 and SOA. This White Paper details how F5's approach to Application Delivery Networking eliminates the bottlenecks inherent in browsers, in the network, and in the data.
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

In this White Paper IDC sees the use of static x86 server configurations is quickly becoming an outdated concept with the introduction of modern solutions based on blade architectures, which can offer both intelligent configuration and management and the ability to perform physical-to-virtual migration to promote uptime and efficient resource usage. When combined with the quickly maturing x86 hypervisor technologies available from a variety of solution providers, the synergy of blade architectures and virtualization offers customers the ability to dramatically increase utilization of their server investments, boost uptime, provide a more resilient and available infrastructure, and roll out new infrastructure and services more quickly.
The need for reliable data centers is growing, especially in the small to medium sized business market. So too is the price of data centers -- both in terms of initial cost and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) -- as equipment, service and utility costs continue to escalate. How is a data center manager going to support an IT-based business strategy that hinges on high availability, at a reasonable business cost? Insource? Outsource? Build? Lease? This presentation looks at the factors driving data centers costs, their impact, how they can be controlled, and how to justify the data center you need.

Todays enterprises face new requirements for their datacenter
and cloud architectures, from keeping pace cost-effectively with
fast-growing traffic to ensuring optimal application
performance no matter how quickly business needs or the
enterprise environment evolve. At the same time, IT must reduce
costs and datacenter sprawl, ensure security and uptime, and
prepare for a new generation of cloud computing initiatives.
While many Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solutions
promise to meet demanding customer needs, the reality often
falls short. Taking a closer look at the available options and how
they measure up against the criteria that matter most, it
becomes clear that NetScaler beats the competitionproviding
better performance and scalability than F5 Networks, Inc.
An ADC is one of the most critical elements of an organizations datacenter and cloud architecture. As you evaluate ADC solutions, its essential to pay close attention to their ability to address the most important challenges in your environment. This paper highlights nine key datacenter and cloud architecture challenges that NetScaler helps solve more effectively than F5 to help you.
The next-generation of hybrid data centers will integrate physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures to deliver IT services more flexibly, affordably, and adaptively, and require a new generation of flexible security architectures.
"Although many IT professionals believe that using self-signed SSL certificates can help their organizations lower security costs, the real numbers tell a different story. From data center infrastructure and physical security, to the hardware and software required, to the personnel needed to manage the certificate lifecycle, the true costs of self-signed SSL security can become very expensive, very fast.
This paper explores the true total cost of ownership (TCO) for self-signed SSL certificates, including a side-by-side comparison of a self-signed architecture versus working with a third-party SSL vendor. Before a company decides to use self-signed certificates, these issues deserve careful consideration."
Storage plays a critical role in the datacenter. To keep up with the performance, capacity, availability, and efficiency needs of todays enterprise, storage is undergoing a transformation by leveraging flash, high-capacity disks, and integrated data management. This paper discusses how Nimble Storages flash-optimized architecture is engineered to accelerate applications, scale performance and capacity, protect data, and make IT more productive and empowered.
