As our businesses become increasingly digital, we tend to think about technology in non-physical terms. Our IT infrastructure becomes “the cloud.” Our servers and storage become “virtual.” Our networks become “software-defined.”
An examination of those organizations using web services successfully and find that they have chosen their networking infrastructure carefully and taken advice about future upgrade strategies.
SDN and NFV
We look at whether software defined networking (SDN) or network functions virtualization (NFV) will solve the problem of the sheer volume of new applications, and when they are likely to fulfil their promise.
Inside information from Juniper Networks on how to avoid that cyberattack and if you can’t – how to neutralize it.
Internet of Things
How will you deal with the 1.6 zettabytes of data the Internet of Things is preparing to throw your way? Get your smart spectacles out and read how!
We take a look at why the rapid growth in cloud Services could very well be a big help for co-location – a sector which is still growing very nicely thank you.
"The Enterprise Strategy Group put HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure through its paces in a series of hands-on performance and stress tests simulating real-world configurations and load conditions.
Read this report to learn how an HPE SimpliVity infrastructure:
Ran nine workloads simultaneously, with an average response time across all applications of 3.9ms
Showed little to no performance impact as a virtual controller, drive, and node were systematically failed on a two-node cluster."
There are five ways to provision test data. You can copy or take a snapshot of your production database or databases. You can provision data manually or via a spreadsheet. You can derive virtual copies of your production database(s).
You can generate subsets of your production database(s). And you can generate synthetic data that is representative of your production data but is not actually real. Of course, the first four examples assume that the data you need for testing purposes is available to you from your production databases.
If this is not the case, then only manual or synthetic data provision is a viable option.

The advent of cloud computing and software-defined data center architectures for modern application delivery has made networking more sensitive than ever before. Applications in the digital age require networks that can expand and contract dynamically based on consumer demand. Enterprises are implementing software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver the automation required by these new environments, but the dynamic nature of SDN makes network management and monitoring fundamentally more challenging.
Network infrastructure teams need monitoring tools that can provide visibility into these new and constantly changing networks. This white paper explores the importance of SDN monitoring and examines a leading example of a solution, CA Performance Management with CA Virtual Network Assurance integration.
Hard- und Softwaresysteme werden immer effizienter, ausgereifter und nutzbringender, nehmen tendenziell allerdings auch an Komplexität zu. Als z. B. virtuelle Maschinen die Bare-Metal-Softwareumgebungen ablösten, entstand durch die Virtualisierung eine neue Ebene der Komplexität, die die IT-Teams mit einplanen und managen mussten.
Auch der in den letzten Jahren zunehmende Einsatz von Microservices und Containern hat dazu geführt, dass immer mehr Komponenten in eine einzige Anwendung integriert und somit auch orchestriert werden müssen. In der Regel sind die für den IT-Betrieb zuständigen Teams jedoch in ihrer Fähigkeit begrenzt, dieser wachsenden Komplexität Herr zu werden. Naheliegend wäre sicher, mehr Personal einzustellen, dies ist allerdings keine sehr wirtschaftliche Lösung, die zudem keine guten Skalierungsmöglichkeiten bietet.
Big data has raised the bar for data virtualization products. To keep pace, TIBCO® Data Virtualization added a massively parallel processing engine that supports big-data scale workloads. Read this whitepaper to learn how it works.
With data and analytics the new competitive battleground, businesses that take advantage will be the leaders; those that do not will fall behind. But with data so distributed, gaining this advantage is a huge challenge. Unless you have data virtualization, a better, faster way to meet your analytic data needs. Read this white paper to learn who needs data virtualization and what kinds of benefits others have achieved.
Are you considering data virtualization for your organization today? In this paper you will learn 10 core truths about data virtualization and gain essential knowledge for overcoming analytic data bottlenecks and driving better outcomes.

Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption
Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT.
Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.

One of the biggest challenges IT ops teams face is the lack of visibility across its infrastructure — physical, virtual and in the cloud. Making things even more complex, any infrastructure monitoring solution needs to not only meet the IT team’s needs, but also the needs of other stakeholders including line of business (LOB) owners and application developers.
For companies already using a monitoring platform like Splunk, monitoring blindspots arise from the need to prioritize across multiple departments. This report outlines a four-step approach for an effective IT operations monitoring (ITOM) strategy.

At a projected market of over $4B by 2010 (Goldman Sachs), virtualizationhas firmly established itself as one of the most importanttrends in Information Technology. Virtualization is expectedto have a broad influence on the way IT manages infrastructure.Major areas of impact include capital expenditure and ongoingcosts, application deployment, green computing, and storage.
The idea of load balancing is well defined in the IT world: A network device accepts traffic on behalf ofa group of servers, and distributes that traffic according to load balancing algorithms and the availabilityof the services that the servers provide. From network administrators to server administrators to applicationdevelopers, this is a generally well understood concept.
This white paper is a business briefing for C-Level Executives on how integrating a range of technologies - including unified communications, service oriented architecture, virtualization and cloud computing - can transform the productivity and profitability of large enterprises.
