Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.
ERP and Business Intelligence are essential to your success. Read this and learn how to improve productivity and decision-making. You'll see how Blue Coat WAN Optimization leverages proven solutions to achieve dramatic reductions in latency and bandwidth consumption.
For many organizations, the wide area network (WAN) infrastructure that connects an enterprise’s remote and branch
offices has not changed for decades. Over the years, organizations consolidated many regional data centers into a few
highly available data center locations which meant that remote locations had to connect to centralized applications over
WANs and all internet traffic went through these data centers as well. This introduced bandwidth constraints and latency
issues. The development in WAN optimization provided incremental and measurable improvement in WAN performance
and provided some bandwidth cost containment. However, that technology typically was only deployed at the most
problematic sites that struggled to achieve acceptable levels of performance and user experience. It did not solve all the
issues with WAN connectivity.
WAN infrastructure planning was limited to increases in capacity that were met by provisioning additional carrier MPLS
(multiprotocol label switching)
Microsoft has made significant enhancements to the architecture of Microsoft Dynamics® CRM 4.0 to improve network performance. Test results demonstrate network bandwidth utilization improvements of up to 94%. Improvements were evaluated in the number of round trips, bytes sent, and bytes received. Because the bandwidth utilization associated with a page can change after the first time the page is loaded, both initial (cold) and subsequent (warm) page loads were tested.

Video conferencing is an increasingly important technology to improve employee and partner collaboration, especially for increasingly virtual organizations supporting rising numbers of mobile and home workers. But many companies still struggle to justify their investments in video conferencing, and not to understand potential cost differences among competing solutions - not just hardware and software expenses, but also investments required for bandwidth and operational support. Comparing various video conferencing solutions requires examining deployment models, licensing arrangements, network, hardware, and operational costs for leading video conferencing solution vendors in a variety of scenarios, using real-world data gathered from actual buyers of video conferencing products and services. The result: Significant differences in costs across all areas, especially for varying deployment models.
Read this IDC white paper to understand the various approaches to solving today's backup and recovery challenges leveraging deduplication. The paper discusses how to dramatically improve IT economics by optimizing network bandwidth, backup windows, and storage footprint requirements in distributed and datacenter locations alike.
This whitepaper shows how you can finally meet your recovery objectives, provide seamless failover between multiple sites, improve remote application performance, and lower your ongoing bandwidth costs.
Running multiple data centers can be costly and complex. While using shared WAN links is a viable option for cutting costs, many organizations would rather incur the additional expense of private lines than sacrifice performance.
This resource details the challenges of sharing WAN links and explores how WAN optimization – which employs a set of technologies to improve the bandwidth, latency, and loss characteristics of WAN links – can help you achieve the private line performance you need without the high price tag.
In recent years, data deduplication has made its ways from the storage to the networking community. More specifically, it has become an important tool for optimizing application performance across the WAN. By eliminating the transfer of repetitive IP traffic, deduplication significantly improves WAN utilization and accelerates data transfers between geographically disperse locations. This saves bandwidth costs and helps to overcome many obstacles when communicating across a WAN.
This paper discusses how WAN deduplication works, and how it can be effectively deployed as a complement to existing storage deduplication solutions.
Every data center IT manager must constantly deal with certain practical constraints such as time, complexity, reliability, maintainability, space, compatibility, and money. The challenge is that business application demands on computing technology often don’t cooperate with these constraints.
A day is lost due to a software incompatibility introduced during an upgrade, hours are lost tracing cables to see where they go, money is spent replacing an unexpected hardware failure, and so on. Day in and day out, these sorts of interruptions burden data center productivity.
Sometimes, it’s possible to temporarily improve the situation by upgrading to newer technology. Faster network bandwidth and storage media can reduce the time it takes to make backups. Faster processors — with multiple cores and larger memory address space — make it possible to practically manage virtual machines.
