In this webinar an expert panel will examine the security and visibility needs of mesh SDN networks by examining the security challenges faced by businesses in distributed SDN environments. The webinar will also present real-world case studies of companies who excelling at providing a superior customer experience for their applications and their sites.
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.

The Internet is increasingly becoming critical to enterprise connectivity, but there remains confusion regarding the role of the Internet in the enterprise WAN architecture. Learn to overcome the confusion with this whitepaper.
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
IBM® SmartCloud® Orchestrator makes complex cloud services easy to manage. Built on OpenStack, IBM SmartCloud Orchestrator provides common cloud services for multi tier application environments on top of compute, network and storage while supporting multiple hypervisors and multi-vendor platforms. It’s designed to simplify and speed the creation and execution of process workflows that then help shorten deployment and change processes in the cloud. With standardization and automation of cloud services through a flexible orchestration engine, IBM SmartCloud Orchestrator (SCO) provides ongoing service lifecycle management and the flexible platform to automate assets that most organizations are already using.
IBM PureApplication System converges compute, storage, networking components, and software into a preconfigured and pretested system. This Forrester paper helps to better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with the IBM PureApplication System.
An enterprise cloud network is one that embodies the characteristics and capabilities that define public cloud services. These include being 'elastic' so that performance can be scaled and etc. Read on to learn more about Citrix Triscale Technology.
IT departments are jazzed about cloud services, which promise fast deployments and major cost savings. But is the cloud actually delivering on these promises? Now that more enterprises have cloud experience under their belts, IDG Research Services decided to find out.
Restructuring the marketing department has become a business cliché and yet rarely produces better results. Try networking your marketing team with social business technology before marketing engages in yet another unsuccessful reorg.
Cisco Systems, with 75,000 employees and annual revenue of
close to $50 billion, is a major multinational supplier of
networking solutions. In addition to supplying networking
solutions that businesses use to run their own datacenters,
Cisco is constantly seeking to simplify and optimize its own IT
infrastructure to make it more adaptable and innovative and to
better provide itself with a competitive advantage.
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.
“Innovation” is an overused term. The smallest adjustments, the most trivial enhancements, and the least impactful improvements are often trumpeted as innovative. But every once in a while, something truly groundbreaking and transformative comes our way—disrupting longstanding assumptions and norms in the process. This edition of Unleashing IT showcases Cisco’s holistic approach to the future of networking: application Centric Infrastructure (aCI). Promoted by Cisco, Intel®, and ecosystem partners, aCI is a true innovation that changes the way technology is delivered in support of business priorities
Software Defined Networking For Dummies, Cisco Special Edition, shows you what SDN is, how it works, and how you can choose the right SDN solution. This book also helps you understand the terminology, jargon, and acronyms that are such a part of defining SDN.
Along the way, you’ll see some examples of the current state of the art in SDN technology and see how SDN can help your organization.
