As one of the fastest moving industries in terms of innovation and change, Information Technology is rife with predictions for what will be "the next big thing". Networking is undergoing a shift with the adoption of web-scale and open networking approaches. Fill out the form to the right to view our webinar and hear experts from Cumulus Networks, IPspace, and Facebook discuss their predictions for what will be the biggest changes and evolutions in data centers this year.

Data center infrastructure complexity must be tamed, as mobility, cloud networking and social media demand fast and agile approaches to data delivery. You can overcome these obstacles and improve your data center operations by consolidating your systems and deploying virtualization, using the Fujitsu PRIMEFLEX vShape reference architecture.

Siemon, a global leader in network cabling solutions and data center physical layer infrastructure, offers this new 66-page E-Book focused on guiding data center professionals and service providers through key infrastructure challenges.
Much of the focus on flexible datacenters centers around the software application, compute, networking, and storage layers. Only after an initiative has begun are the most suitable best practices in datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM)
This guide will provide the steps necessary to configure a Microsoft Fast Track Small Implementation cloud built on EMC VSPEX, which is built on Cisco Unified Computing System and EMC VNXe technologies.
This Technology Spotlight examines key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing these ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.
In the following pages, you’ll learn why applications are increasingly crucial to businesses (page 4). You’ll get unique perspectives from industry analysts and software automation visionaries (pages 10 and 15). and you’ll hear from companies that are already taking advantage of aCI, like acxiom (page 8), Netapp (page 12), and Symantec (page 14).
Enterprises are using applications to gain competitive advantage.
Success in this technology-based environment requires agility and
flexibility. And if IT wants to be the primary technology solution partner
for the business, the IT staff needs processes and tools in place to
deliver solutions at a much faster pace.
As digital services propel more and more business processes, cloud
technology is proving to be a crucial addition to the IT services portfolio.
It is far more scalable, and in many cases more cost effective, than its
predecessors. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and softwaredefined
data center technologies—virtualized computing, networking,
and storage—have helped IT address the “fast IT” challenge.

This white paper takes a close look at the importance of moving to an agile, high-performance, next-generation data center network with three key areas that need to be addressed in order to do so: The Data Center Interconnect, Cloud Connectivity, and Building Cloud-Aware Networks.
Download this white paper to see why securing the data center requires a solution that can:
-Provide visibility and control over custom data center applications
-Handle asymmetric traffic flows and application transactions between devices and data centers
-Adapt as data centers evolve: to virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), Cisco -Application-Centric Infrastructures (ACIs) and beyond
-Address the entire attack continuum: before, during, and after an attack
-Integrate with security deployed across the entire network
-Support geograpically dispersed inter-DC traffic and deployments, including private, public and cloud environments
Vendors have differed in their approach to delivering on the promise of SDN. In this paper, we compare two such SDN platforms: Cisco’s Application-Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and VMware’s NSX platform.
