IT leaders are adopting hybrid WAN topologies to increase capacity and reliability while balancing cost and performance requirements. However, these hybrid architectures are often too complex, rigid, and fragile. As a result, many organizations are challenging the status quo of traditional networking. Read this Technology Adoption Profile from Forrester to learn why 90% of network managers are looking to evolve their WAN, and see why new approaches such as SD-WAN are required to compete in today's digital age.

Live migration is essential for a dynamic data center environment. But until now, it's been impossible between different generations of processors. Intel IT and End User Platform Integration have done so successfully with Intel® Virtualization Technology FlexMigration. This white paper explains how.
Call it growth, scaling, or expansion – whatever you call it, increasing your storage resources often strikes fear and loathing in the heart of the IT administrator. It conjures up visions of downtime, extra management tasks, frustrated users, and working nights and weekends. In addition, since capacity and performance are intimately connected, increasing storage resources can require balancing changes that affects the entire the SAN.
On-Demand Managed Hosting ranges from simple Managed Servers with one or two processors to the design of complex computing environments, which typically include multiple servers, storage, networking, security, backup, load balancing, and more.

The demands for heightened security through the use of multi-factor authentication are pressing, but so is the need to control budgets and give users convenient access to the data and services they need. It is growing increasingly clear that organizations can’t meet these demands with legacy platforms—they need next-generation authentication. This paper examines why this need for next-generation authentication is so vital, and it offers a detailed look at the key characteristics that distinguish these platforms from other alternatives.
Whether you’re serving customers, partners, or internal users through two data centers or twenty, you want all users to have the best experience. Global load balancing (GLB) is the effective management and balancing of the Internet traffic to and from your data centers and cloud service providers and has become critical to growing enterprise ecommerce revenue, serving customers and empowering employee productivity.
Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications.
Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling applications to be re-architected into autonomous microservices
from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.
A five-year-long quest for software-defined application delivery and services came to a fruitful end for this $4 billion enterprise when they chose Avi Networks and Cisco ACI as part of their move to a next generation data center architecture. Avi Networks represented the perfect complement to the network automation benefits delivered by Cisco ACI at the company.
This buyer’s guide for load balancers is based on research, best practices, and conversations with network administrators and IT operations teams at over 110 Global 2000 enterprises. It presents guidelines for choosing application services that mirror the needs of modern data centers and public cloud initiatives.
The guide is organized in sections, starting with a pre-assessment of your current application delivery capabilities. With data gathered from your pre-assessment, you can review the considerations involved in creating a software-defined application services strategy; identify opportunities to improve automation of application services and operations. Finally, use the software-defined application services checklist at the end of the guide to identify key priorities in your choice of application service solutions for your enterprise.
