Always-on Connections for Store Networks and Powering Intelligent Systems
In the fast-paced world of retail, network reliability is everything—but so are security, agility, and cost-effectiveness. Retailers want it all, and they depend on their IT administrators to balance these needs. Whether it’s ensuring an always-on connection for store networks, powering intelligent systems aimed at swaying buyer behavior, or transmitting real-time analytics to inform marketing and inventory decisions, the bedrock of successful retailing is a network that can support the growing list of mission-critical applications dependent on secure Internet connectivity.
In the past, finding a solution to balance these demands has been difficult at best. Less expensive wired options like DSL mean hours of downtime each month. Alternatives like T1 connections deliver more uptime but carry a price tag that usually puts large-scale distributed deployments out of reach.

Silver Peak Systems' new Agility technology initiative gives application owners easy control with point-and-click virtual workload acceleration thanks to tight integration with VMware vCenter and other virtual infrastructure management consoles.
Integration may not be new, but its role has drastically changed. Once used simply for support, it is now an enabler – serving as an indispensable foundation critical to achieving agility, efficiency, and growth.
Done well, it can drive better business decisions, more cost-effective operations, and be the catalyst for competitive advantage. Architected without a clearly defined strategy, however, integration will fail to deliver on its promise.
What are some of the pitfalls you can avoid when augmenting an existing infrastructure to maximize performance, results, and success? Read on.
This paper will discuss the new IT landscape as it relates to the new integration, and argue that the need for a comprehensive integration strategy has never been more urgent. This strategy must not only take new data types into account, but also address the more fundamental issue of agility – because whatever the integration needs of an enterprise may be at the moment, they are certain to change rapidly.
