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.

Firewall Administration For Sysadmins: A Primer

November 12, 2013 05:51 PM
For sysadmins trying to get their applications to work, the firewall can seem like an impediment. With more insight into firewalls and the job of a firewall administrator, a sysadmin will be able to communicate better with the security team.

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.

WAN Acceleration Slows Down

September 09, 2013 10:57 AM
A new report shows the WAN acceleration/optimization market is shrinking. WAN optimization won't go away, but don't look for growth either.

SDN Startup Creates Distributed Virtual Appliances

July 22, 2013 03:21 PM
Embrane is no SDN wannabe. The company's SDN platform goes beyond mere transformation of hardware into virtual appliances.

Networking In The Cloud

March 22, 2012 09:30 AM
In discussing network design with my clients, I talk about how routers, firewalls and other network gear can be interconnected to provide a scalable and redundant IP network. These foundations of network design apply to networks composed of tangible components or the virtualized infrastructure that extends corporate data centers to the cloud. I find that the networking aspects of cloud computing are frequently overlooked or addressed as an afterthought.

The Security Profession Is A Mess

March 21, 2012 10:45 AM
I've been considering how to build a network security plan for a small data center with an online presence. To put the proposal together I needed to develop some sort of structure in the security space so that I could research products and vendors. What I found is that implementing firewalls and IDSes is simple. Finding competent security professionals is not.

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.

Distribution Management Uses F5 To Solve Virtualization Challenges

February 09, 2012 01:00 PM
Wholesaler Distribution Management is using F5's new VDI support to take advantage of growing mobility and virtualization opportunities while addressing many of the accompanying challenges, including increased infrastructure costs and performance issues.

F5 Networks 'Fixes' Data Center Security

January 24, 2012 11:00 AM
Arguing that multiple point appliances intended to secure a network only add to complexity without providing the intended protection, F5 Networks is introducing what it calls a Data Center Firewall to combine multiple security solutions into one appliance. The appliance, called BIG-IP model 11050 and carrying a starting price of $129,995, delivers such security features as dynamic threat defense, DDoS protection, protocol security, SSL termination and a network firewall.

Cisco Secures, Supercharges ISR G2s With Hardware-Accelerated VPNs

October 28, 2011 02:20 PM
Customers looking for more performance and security in their branch operations should find the plug-and-play Cisco VPN Internal Service Module for the ISR G2 family very attractive, especially for the public sector, say company officials. The compact VPN blade provides up to three times better throughput for IPSec VPN encrypted traffic, as well as support for the latest encryption standards. These include stronger NSA-regulated encryption algorithms such as Suite-B, which has been selected for use by the U.S. government.
