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.

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.

Should Applications Listen To The Network?

August 29, 2013 11:35 AM
One goal of SDN is to make the network more responsive to application needs. But applications also have to be responsive to the state of the network.

WAN Optimization Part 3: Overcoming Bandwidth Limitations

June 13, 2013 01:50 PM
Bandwidth is one of the key factors that can impact network performance. Learn how WAN optimization uses deduplication to address this issue and how to evaluate different deduplication approaches.

WAN Optimization Part 1: TCP Limitations

March 28, 2013 04:39 PM
WAN optimization and application acceleration technologies help get around performance limitations in TCP. Here’s how the numbers add up.

SSDs and Understanding Storage Performance Metrics

August 03, 2012 12:14 PM
In the first of a three-part series, Howard Marks describes how storage system throughput is a bad indicator of performance and how SSDs can vastly improve performance, even for entry-level storage systems.

The Importance of Inbound QoS Grows

July 31, 2012 11:54 AM
As SaaS and cloud adoption grow, the need for organizations to take the reins and manage inbound QoS on their own has never been greater.

Cisco Visual Networking Index Predicts More Video and Devices

June 15, 2012 09:00 AM
According to the latest Cisco Visual Networking Index, there will be much more video by 2016, which will increase bandwidth and quality-of-service demands. The growth in tablets and smartphones will lead to new management and security challenges.

Next-Gen Networking Drives IT Budgets

March 20, 2012 10:10 AM
Vice President Joe Biden once said, "Don't tell me your values, show me your budget and I'll tell you your values." If the vice president saw the enterprise IT spending budgets, he would rightly conclude that they place an increasingly higher value on their networks as the critical circulation system for all of their IT assets. As demands are placed on networks to handle more video traffic, migrate to 10GbE connectivity, connect mobile and wireless devices, and handle the increase in data traffic brought about by virtualization, companies are investing significantly in their networks in 2012.

WOCs Address Soaring Bandwidth Demand

March 19, 2012 09:00 AM
The wide area network (WAN) optimization market is expected to grow almost 60% over the next five years, with sales predicted to reach $1.65 billion in 2016, from $1.05 billion in 2011. WAN optimization controllers (WOC), as they’re called, not only speed up network traffic and improve the performance of applications, they also help enterprises avoid costly upgrades to bandwidth capacity.

Finding Fault With App Management

March 16, 2012 09:00 AM
According to the Fifth Annual State of the Network Study released by Network Instruments, 83% of IT professionals surveyed said problem number one with application management is “determining whether problems are caused by the network, the system or the application.”
