Network Performance refers to the level of quality of service of a telecommunications product as seen by the customer. It should not be seen merely as an attempt to get "more through" the network. Performance can also be modelled instead of measured; one example of this is using state transition diagrams to model queuing performance in a circuit-switched network.
As many network administrators initiate their IPv6 migration projects, other IT professionals do not know where to begin. This white paper first describes the importance of securing the network against IPv6 threats well before the introduction of any IPv6 traffic. It then outlines the steps involved to begin securing a transitional IPv4/IPv6 network.
Tighter security requirements and ever-faster networks are placing extraordinary demands on UTM platforms. In order to accelerate network traffic while blocking new threats, enterprises must deploy specialized hardware/software security devices.
Social and technological changes are transforming the nature of network traffic, raising network costs and performance issues. Learn how to proactively manage the WAN as new Web protocols, consumer and corporate video and cloud-delivered applications become mainstream.

Would you trust your network monitoring tools enough to know when something is truly halting a business service? While Mary Nugent won’t use this podcast to attempt to tell you technical details on the correct alarming thresholds, she will share some excellent stories about predicting a system’s behavior. Run Time: 11:30.
Application health monitors are now a tried and true technology of the Application Delivery Controller, yet traditional monitors require interaction with the application. Inband passive monitors change that requirement and monitor applications transparently.Inband passive monitors finally fuse together intelligence and performance; it's no longer an "or" decision, now it becomes an "and," enabling both application intelligence and performance to co-exist.

Microsoft, together with Unisys Corporation, completed benchmark testing of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 running on the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 operating system with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 database software. Benchmark results demonstrate that Microsoft Dynamics CRM can scale to meet the needs of an enterprise-level, mission-critical workload of 24,000 concurrent users while maintaining performance at sub-second response times.
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.

Picking the right servers, storage systems and management software is essential to successful IT consolidation initiatives. In the past, either scaling up (bigger, faster servers) or scaling out (more servers) would have been the answer. But one platform does not fit all needs. Scaling right means picking the scaleup or scale-out approach—or combination of the two—that best fits each situation.
