April 11, 2012 09:00 AMIBM has introduced what it considers a new category of servers, a family of “expert integrated systems” called PureSystems. The company says PureSystems go beyond the various converged infrastructure or unified system approaches of its peers by adding a new middleware layer that aims to automate both infrastructure and applications, offering workflows from IBM itself, from its third-party partners, and offering IT the ability to define its own workflows.
February 06, 2012 09:00 AMHave you reached the saturation point yet on the cloud? The endless cacophony of cloud messages seems to have transformed into white noise, where trying to distinguish and differentiate among competitive cloud offerings can leave one in either a state of decision-making paralysis or trusting that familiar vendors know what they're talking about without, perhaps, the full measure of due diligence that is appropriate. Enter dinCloud, which plans to break through the droning blather and show how its approach to cloud is different.
December 07, 2010 02:21 PMJuniper Networks' decision to increase its stake in virtualization security specialist Altor Networks to 100 percent was a fairly obvious move, says analyst Zeus Kerravala of the Yankee Group. "Juniper has been trying to strengthen their enterprise portfolio, trying to become a more relevant vendor. This seems to fit in where Juniper is already strong and gives them a stronger presence," Kerravala says.
November 09, 2010 09:37 AMIf your enterprise (either private or public) really needs to make sure that physical documents, objects and electronic information are safely preserved and protected economically for as long as you wanted (even thousands of years), where would you put it? You may know of a better place, but my choice would be the Underground, Iron Mountain's facility in western Pennsylvania.
November 05, 2010 11:44 AMGreen IT is all about reducing wasted energy, wasted space and wasted materials. The difficulty is in establishing a measurement and reporting format that accurately and fairly represents data center efficiency which can be easily compared to other data centers.
November 02, 2010 10:00 AMForce10's recent announcement that it can provide 40Gbps from edge to core is further proof that 40Gb Ethernet in the data center is right around the corner. 40Gb Ethernet, designed for uplinks, reduces the number of 10Gb links that are aggregated and ensures that 48-port 1Gb switches won't be oversubscribed. While 40Gb isn't exactly ground breaking news, Force10 takes a different approach to the technology.
April 21, 2010 11:00 AMNetlist, Inc. today announced that it will be demonstrating a full featured enterprise service portfolio "Datacenter in a Box," highlighting its HyperCloud memory technology at Interop 2010. Addressing the need for datacenter efficiency, "Datacenter in a Box" will showcase how companies can now run a datacenter from a single dual socket Supermicro server utilizing eighteen, 16GB 2vRank HyperCloud DIMMs (288GB DRAM) and virtualization software.
April 19, 2010 10:18 AMArista's new 7500 is a high-capacity, high-speed switch that the company is targeting a as a data center interconnect. Unlike the Campus LAN where Cisco commands a large percentage of the ports, the data center network is much more in play. Many networking vendors are promoting a flattening, but doing so requires a capacity switch in the center that can handle the total load gracefully. The Arista 7500 certainly fills that requirement. The biggest problem you may have is running 384 cables to the switch.
April 19, 2010 09:11 AMArista Networks today introduced the Arista 7500, a revolutionary switching platform for maximizing data center performance, efficiency, and overall network reliability. The Arista 7500 is the highest performance and most power efficient 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) switching platform available. It was specifically designed to address the most demanding customer requirements for cloud computing, virtualization, and mission-critical data centers.
February 03, 2010 11:02 AMThe Department of Homeland Security is looking to invest nearly $900 million in fiscal 2011 on technology projects that include bolstering cyber security and continued work on a data center consolidation project that's already underway. Other IT priorities listed as part of the department's proposed $56.3 billion budget, unveiled Monday, include improvements to an existing Internet-based verification program that lets employers check that someone is legally allowed to work in the United States and technology for airport security.
