Distributed denial-of-service attacks may be organized by type into a taxonomy that includes network attacks (layers 3 and 4), session attacks (layers 5 and 6), application attacks (layer 7), and business logic attacks. Each type may be matched with the best F5 technology for mitigating that attack. This paper explains how taken together, the F5 BIG-IP portfolio of products provides effective anti-attack technology for each layer of the taxonomy and can also defend against specific attack tools, network reconnaissance, and low-bandwidth asymmetric attacks.

The concept of Continuous Data Technologies (CDT) emerged on the scene two years ago, and is now transforming the data storage industry. Nearly every major storage vendor has one or more CDT products in their offering roadmap, in addition to a vital community of emerging vendors who are the true innovators in this space.
Replication has become a catchall phrase that while gaining in allure is also gaining in confusion – especially in the mid-tier where data is just as important as the high-end, but IT staffing and budgets are far more limited. IT people as well as vendors have a tendency to lump all data movement functions together as replication, regardless of the method or the reason.

Smaller budgets. Fewer personnel. More pressure to show value. As the recession lingers on, B2B marketers are being called upon to deliver bigger, faster, cheaper results with less resources. But the current economic climate means even companies able to make high-dollar purchases will require more touch points to nurture them through the buying process. Today's business buyers are cautiously working to make smarter, more informed decisions.
A powerful signal integrity analysis tool must be flexibility, easy to use and integrated into an existing EDA framework and design flow. In addition, it is important for the tool to be accurate enough. This report reviews a validation study for the Mentor Graphics HyperLynx 8.0 PI tool to establish confidence in using it for power integrity analysis.
For advanced signaling over high-loss channels, designs today are using equalization and several new measurement methods to evaluate the performance of the link. Both simulation and measurement tools support equalization and the new measurement methods, but correlation of results throughout the design flow is unclear. In this paper a high performance equalizing serial data link is measured and the performance is compared to that predicted by simulation. Then, the differences between simulation and measurements are discussed as well as methods to correlate the two.
Virtualization can deliver dramatic benefits for data centers, but it can also stress the underlying support infrastructure. Power and cooling systems—which may have been quite sufficient for pre-virtualization needs—could easily become inadequate when data center performance patterns are radically altered. This paper describes some of power challenges related to virtualization—and the readily available technologies to address them.
