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.

Building An Information Security Policy Part 3: Logical And Physical Design

March 19, 2014 12:10 PM
Careful crafting of the logical and physical aspects of a network is essential for an effective security policy.

9 Immutable Laws of Network Design

September 17, 2013 06:54 PM
Follow these simple rules to ensure your network is stable, secure and built to last as you overlay new services and applications.

Network Overlays: An Introduction

December 11, 2012 04:33 PM
Network overlays dramatically increase the number of virtual subnets that can be created on a physical network, which in turn supports multitenancy and virtualization features such as VM mobility, and can speed configuration of new or existing services. We’ll look at how network overlays work and examine pros and cons.

Why We Need Network Abstraction

November 26, 2012 03:16 PM
Highly virtualized data centers are exposing cracks in traditional network constructs such as VLANs. New approaches that abstract the physical network, including network overlays, are key to providing flexibility and scale.

Infoblox Automates Network Virtualization Changes

April 03, 2012 11:00 AM
Infoblox has introduced a new platform to automate the previously manual process of making network changes associated with virtualization deployments. The launch of its automation offering is accompanied by the release of an Infoblox-backed industry survey that shows communication and collaboration across various IT silos, including servers, storage, networking and software, is sorely lacking.

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.

Rolling Review: 3Com Baseline Switch 2900 Plus

January 28, 2008 05:00 PM

Architecting for Data Security

December 01, 2006 05:00 AM
IT pros must understand and address the liability associated with granting unfettered access to sensitive data. We explore methods for safeguarding private information while keeping it usable for applications.

Analysis: Enterprise WANs

November 17, 2006 05:00 AM
The Internet will eventually render conventional WANs obsolete. We assess alternative technologies, many based on MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching), that will let IT link remote locations quickly and inexpensively.
