Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

A Network Computing Webinar:
SDN First Steps

Thursday, August 8, 2013
11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET

This webinar will help attendees understand the overall concept of SDN and its benefits, describe the different conceptual approaches to SDN, and examine the various technologies, both proprietary and open source, that are emerging. It will also help users decide whether SDN makes sense in their environment, and outline the first steps IT can take for testing SDN technologies.

WAN Encryption Tops the Agenda After NSA Revelations

September 24, 2013 11:00 AM
Whatever trust customers had in the security of WAN connections from service providers is gone. Encrypt now, and consider less-expensive Internet connections instead.

Network Monitoring Tool Eases Troubleshooting For Utility

August 20, 2013 05:29 PM
Technicians at Bristol Virginia Utilities no longer have to hit the road to diagnose network problems, saving time and money.

HP EVI vs. Cisco OTV: A Technical Look

November 09, 2012 11:01 AM
HP's Ethernet Virtual Interconnect (EVI) connects data centers at Layer 2 to support virtual machine mobility between data centers. We'll see how it stacks up to VPLS and Cisco's OTV.

Carrier Ethernet A Home Run With The Philadelphia Phillies

July 16, 2012 09:45 AM
Carrier Ethernet, where you can get it, is less expensive and provides higher bandwidth than comparable legacy WAN services. Here's how the Philadelphia Phillies are saving 30% to 40% and getting more bandwidth.

Using MPLS In The Enterprise

February 23, 2012 10:00 AM
In the data center, the MPLS/VPN architecture offers an attractive alternative to increasing the size of Layer 2 domains. Some players in the industry are promoting protocols such as Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) to solve Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) scalability problems.

Fumble Your MPLS Handoff: Shaping And Policing

April 13, 2010 10:00 AM
Getting maximum performance from an MPLS network that is managed by the carrier and delivered via an Ethernet hand-off can be a challenge for your network if you don't take some additional steps to utilize it effectively. We see performance issues in these topologies on a regular basis. Think about this: how do you know if you are dropping traffic or your traffic is being slowed down considerably in some virtually bottomless queue across the MPLS cloud? Hopefully, your only feedback mechanism isn't the help desk. Don't trust the carrier to provide you with any shaping or any protection for traffic over your purchased rate. For that matter, don't even trust them for that. Make sure you actively test the MPLS cloud at least quarterly. There are some steps you can take to improve this performance before the traffic leaves your network.

Verizon Launches Nationwide Ethernet VPN Service
