Networking Challenges to the Distributed Enterprise

Networking has always posed vexing challenges for the enterprise, even in the old days when entire data environments were confined on-site infrastructure. Now, with the front office looking to integrate branch offices, colocation providers, partners, suppliers and even customers under a unified, cloud-based infrastructure, the distributed enterprise is creating entirely new levels of network complexity.

HP ConvergedSystem: Altering Business Efficiency and Agility with Integrated Systems

The era of IT infrastructure convergence is upon us. Over the past few years Integrated Computing systems – the integration of compute, networking, and storage - have burst onto the scene and have been readily adopted by large enterprise users. The success of these systems has been built by taking well-known IT workloads and combining it with purpose built integrated computing systems optimized for that particular workload. Example workloads today that are being integrated to create these systems are Cloud, Big Data, Virtualization, Database, VDI or even combinations of two or more.

In the past putting these workload solutions together meant having or hiring technology experts with multiple domain knowledge expertise. Integration and validation could take months of on-premise work. Fortunately, technology vendors have matured along with their Integrated Computing systems approach, and now practically every vendor seems to be touting one integrated system or another focused on solving a particular workload problem. The promised set of business benefits delivered by these new systems fall into these key areas:

·         Implementation efficiency that accelerates time to realizing value from integrated systems

·         Operational efficiency through optimized workload density and an ideally right sized set of infrastructure

·         Management efficiency enabled by an integrated management umbrella that ties all of the components of a solution together

·         Scale and agility efficiency unlocked through a repeatedly deployable building block approach

·         Support efficiency that comes with deeply integrated, pre-configured technologies, overarching support tools, and a single vendor support approach for an entire-set of infrastructure

In late 2013, HP introduced a new portfolio oSDDCffering called HP ConvergedSystem – a family of systems that includes a specifically designed virtualization offering. ConvergedSystem marked a new offering, designed to tackle key customer pain points around infrastructure and software solution deployment, while leveraging HP’s expertise in large scale build-and-integration processes to herald an entirely new level of agility around speed of ordering and implementation. In this profile, we’ll examine how integrated computing systems marks a serious departure from the inefficiencies of traditional order-build-deploy customer processes, and also evaluate HP’s latest advancement of these types of systems.

'Software-defined' to define data center of the future

Is there a real answer for how "software" can define "data center" underneath the software-defined hype?

Seeing the Light: Fiber Mountain Makes Data Center Connectivity A Strategic Asset

One thing is certain in technology - the wheel keeps turning from differentiating advantage to fungible commodity, and then eventually back again. Now we think the time has come for data center connectivity to arise once more and become a competitive asset again. Yep, I’m talking about cables, switches, and the actually physical connections that tie all our precious IT infrastructure together. We think Fiber Mountain is about to change the game here, and provide some real disruption to the way data centers are wired... ...What can you do with 2/3+ of your data center connectivity budget back in your pocket?
