True, measurable performance is a key factor when selecting an Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solution for modern data centers, but with so many different functions available in an ADC, it is important to understand the actual performance in real-world scenarios.
The next-generation of hybrid data centers will integrate physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures to deliver IT services more flexibly, affordably, and adaptively, and require a new generation of flexible security architectures.
Organizations everywhere are turning to virtualization, cloud computing, and mobile technologies to support anytime, anywhere access to today’s work load intensive, data-heavy applications. Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers—built for high performance, 24/7 availability, and uncompromised reliability—can help IT organizations deliver the benefits of these transformative technologies.With cost-saving power, cooling, space, and management efficiencies, Dell’s new servers offer data centers unparalleled performance, efficiency, and reliability for a diverse range of enterprise applications.
Learn about the central issues that tend to be consistent across all Request for Proposals (RFPs) and see what questions you should be asking in order to maximize the efficiency of your mission critical data center.
A high percentage of today’s data centers use water-based cooling methods. Although evaporative cooling, whether through traditional towers or “advanced” adiabatic cooling systems (aka swamp coolers), remain highly effective cooling methods, when you’re planning a new data center you may want to consider the impact of the weather and water availability on your decision.
The purpose of this white paper is to describe the provider thinking and product elements that must be addressed to change the data center selection process from one that is tactical to one that is strategic in nature.
En matière de technologies d'infrastructure révolutionnaires, les clouds privés sont à la pointe et ouvrent la voie vers des niveaux inédits d'efficacité et des modes de consommation plus simples. Une évolution des data centers virtualisés, les clouds privés s'affirment de plus en plus comme des technologies indispensables et sont en passe de devenir un standard en matière d'architecture pour les départements IT du monde entier.
Cisco's Virtualized Multi-tenant Data Center (VMDC) system defines an end-to-end architecture, which an organization may reference for the migration or build out of virtualized, multi-tenant data centers for new cloud-based service models such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
In no particular order, here are five important strategies we see companies using to overcome the limitations of traditional IT infrastructure and transform their data centers to support innovation and growth.
To keep pace with new business demands, rising customer expectations, and emerging technologies, IT leaders are realizing an important opportunity: infrastructure outsourcing. These services, including colocation, hosting, and cloud computing, give IT organizations the flexibility and agility to better serve the needs of the business.
One of IT’s biggest balancing acts is to make data transactions easily available to authorized users while preventing all others from accessing its data assets. With high-profile data security breaches splashed across headlines nearly every day, CIOs are understandably worried about protecting their data. And for IT leaders who are considering moving their business to the cloud it is critical to ensure the provider they select has undertaken full and robust measures for physical and logical security.
Information technology is undergoing rapid change as organizations of all types begin to embrace the idea of
moving computing infrastructure from on-premises to the cloud. It is easy to understand why the cloud has taken
off faster than any technology phenomenon in recent memory. The cloud has the potential to reduce total cost of
ownership (TCO) while enabling quicker responses to fast-moving markets and ever-changing customer needs.
“Being able to flex your compute resources based on changes in volume and customer demand increases agility,
making going to the cloud a very attractive proposition for our customers,” says Brian Johnston, chief technology
officer for QTS in Overland Park, Kansas, a provider of data center solutions and fully managed services.
