System reliability is a vital component in Storage Area Network (SAN) design that keeps your production environment operating and avoids data loss and downtime. But since SANs are built using both mechanical and electronic parts, component failures due to usage, environmental factors, or manufacturing defects are not uncommon. Even in completely redundant systems, controllers can fail, fans can stop operating, power supplies can burn out, and disk drives can degrade or fail.
When you have a technology rollout to deploy on a nationwide or global scale, service efficiency is critical. While missed deadlines and unbudgeted project costs are always a concern, they should never be a likely outcome. By understanding the details of the Rollout Services Model (the second part of the Technology Rollout System), you can avoid the potential nightmares of project implementation and ensure that your project is completed on time and within budget.
The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization (R&H) manages and administers musical and theatrical licensing rights for the heirs of Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, and many other talented writers. The company implemented Microsoft Dynamics AX in 2006 to gain complete control and visibility over its licensing and business operations. More recently, the company wanted to give employees quick and easy access to the information they need to perform their jobs more efficiently. R&H enrolled in the Microsoft Technology Adoption Program and became one of the first companies in the world to implement Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. Now, employees throughout the organization have almost instant access to company information tailored to their specific roles. Employees spend less time tracking tasks and more time efficiently serving customers.

Yesterday’s fat access points and legacy wireless LANs typically can’t handle mission-critical, real-time applications, nor do they have a migration path to 802.11n. Aerohive Networks has developed a new controller-less architecture that provides an innovative way to handle tomorrow’s wireless challenges – like voice over WLAN and migrating to 802.11n – without costing you a fortune. This paper discusses the benefits of this approach and the key underlying technologies of cooperative control, including best path forwarding and policy enforcement at the edge.
