Virtualization is one of the most highly demanded of all IT projects this decade because it enables enterprises to reduce capex and opex costs and at the same time increase business efficiency and agility. However, implementing, supporting, and managing virtualization can often be difficult tasks, especially as deployments increase in scale and complexity and impact more areas of the datacenter. These more complex infrastructures often require highly skilled engineers with in-depth business knowledge and systems management capabilities. Projects such as infrastructure optimization and automation initiatives for self-service provisioning are key because they enable enterprises to streamline business processes and utilize cloud strategies and mobility solutions. IDC shows how partnering with experts who can implement, optimize, support, and manage virtualized environments may be the right course of action. By utilizing partners, enterprises will be able to avoid some of the potential pit
For midsize organizations, business analytics offers the crucial ability to transform data into insight and uncover opportunities for growth and competitive advantage. This Aberdeen Sector Insight explores the impact of business analytics in North American midsize organizations.
Simply put, software defined storage is the abstraction of storage services from storage hardware. This term is more than just marketing hype, it’s the logical evolution of storage virtualization from simply being a storage aggregator to the end goal of storage as a service. To achieve this goal, software defined storage needs a platform from which to centralize.
More than ever, the data center is a gateway to opportunity, responsible for bringing together the data, applications, and IT resources needed to support growth and innovation. At Cisco we have the opportunity to observe how data center infrastructure is evolving in response to market and technology trends. In no particular order, here are five important strategies we see companies using to overcome the limitations of traditional IT infrastructure and transform their data centers to support innovation and growth.
This document discusses the hardware architecture of the new switch platforms in the Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches product family: in particular, the Cisco Nexus 9200 platform switches. The Cisco Nexus 9200 platform is a new extension of the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series. The platform uses a compact fixed-switch form factor and operates in the NX-OS mode, based on Cisco NX-OS Software. Built with next-generation Cisco application-specific circuits (ASICs), the Cisco Nexus 9200 platform brings high-performance and high-density 25, 50, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to data center networks, providing industry-leading performance, power efficiency, and capabilities in compact fixed-form-factor switches.
Ballooning data growth and ever-shrinking IT budgets have combined to push higher-density disk arrays to the forefront for almost any organization contemplating investment in new backup solutions. That’s not surprising; after all, the promise of more backup capacity and performance in less data center real estate sounds irresistible to anyone seeking greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness from their existing IT infrastructure.

FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) provides a fast and accurate method of producing jigs and fixtures. FDM is an additive manufacturing process that builds plastic parts layer-by-layer using data from computer-aided design (CAD) files. By using FDM, the traditional fabrication process is substantially simplified; tool-making becomes less expensive and time consuming. As a result, manufacturers realize immediate improvements in productivity, efficiency and quality.
Find out how the Oreck Corporation, a well-respected manufacturer of vacuum cleaners and other cleaning appliances, realized immediate savings in cost, production time and inspection time by implementing FDM for its fixtures.
Some companies attempt to solve this by hiring a new manager or promoting someone up the ranks, but that only leads to another individual in charge with his or her own ideas of how best to manage facilities. The real problem goes unaddressed.
