Data Center Automation enables you to manage change processes, ensure configuration compliance and dynamically provision servers and applications based on business need. By controlling complexity and automating processes in the data center, your data center becomes more adaptive and agile. Effective Data Center Automation lets you leverage virtualization, manage capacity, and reduce costs and also helps reduce energy usage and waste.

In this whitepaper we'll explore some of these problems inherent in virtualized datacenters and cloud environments, specifically enterprise private clouds, and we'll discuss solutions that can take you down the last mile of the automation journey so that your business can fully achieve agility and extract maximum value from its private-cloud investments.
This paper discusses workload automation and job scheduling as it pertains to cloud computing and helps enterprise IT leaders understand the workload automation landscape by raising questions they need to carefully consider for long-term success of their datacenter workload automation strategy.
This whitepaper: Describes a 4-stage virtualization maturity lifecycle experienced by many organizations and discusses in detail (using sample project plans) the tasks and capabilities required to succeed at each stage of the maturity lifecycle.
Does your application infrastructure meet modern business user needs?
Download this infograph to learn how to deliver business agility through datacenter automation with Citrix NetScaler and Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).
This Technology Spotlight examines key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.
What is the key benefit of SD-WAN?
To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users.
But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere.
Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of todays IT requires a new approach to networking.
This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access.
Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you:
Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks.
Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users.
Deploy locally with zero touch via automated

These new software-defined capabilities, enabling enterprises and service providers bridge the gap between software-defined flexibility and the true business potential of the Software-Defined Datacenter.
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
The four pillars of computing cloud, mobility, social, and analytics are driving new levels of network innovation in datacenter networks. These forces are now buffeting the datacenter along with virtualization and the Internet of Things (IoT), resulting in sweeping changes in traffic patterns that expose the limitations of traditional networks and their operational models. To become a resource rather than a bottleneck to overall datacenter performance, the network must deliver not just exceptional performance and scalability but also unprecedented automation and orchestration that can yield agility, flexibility, and service velocity. This Technology Spotlight examines these 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.
The current evolution of computing is prompting enterprise datacenters and their associated networks to adopt new approaches. The four pillars of computing cloud, mobility, social, and analytics are now the key trends driving new levels of network innovation that will determine the design and operation of datacenter networks over the next several years.
