For many organizations, the wide area network (WAN) infrastructure that connects an enterprise’s remote and branch offices has not changed for decades. Over the years, organizations consolidated many regional data centers into a few highly available data center locations which meant that remote locations had to connect to centralized applications over WANs and all internet traffic went through these data centers as well. This introduced bandwidth constraints and latency issues. The development in WAN optimization provided incremental and measurable improvement in WAN performance and provided some bandwidth cost containment. However, that technology typically was only deployed at the most problematic sites that struggled to achieve acceptable levels of performance and user experience. It did not solve all the issues with WAN connectivity. WAN infrastructure planning was limited to increases in capacity that were met by provisioning additional carrier MPLS (multiprotocol label switching)

It used to be that you would build out your datacenter with all the right considerations in place, purchasing equipment that was sized to meet the needs of your organization for today and the near term future. Change used to be merely planning for capacity upgrades or network expansion, or migrating to the latest application version—or more simply put: things we could measure, control and manage. With the advent of the cloud, the rise in cyber-based threats, and the need to do more, faster, we’re witnessing a perfect storm that is making it more and more difficult for the enterprise to plan for change, and to maximize the investments that they make in their IT infrastructure today. This eBook will focus on considerations that you should make when deciding on an ADC solution that can not only survive these changes, but help create opportunities for innovation as the enterprise strives towards digital transformation. This guide will help you understand the changes that are currently unde

The data center infrastructure is central to the overall IT architecture. It is where most business-critical applications are hosted and various types of services are provided to the business. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered. Another important aspect of the data center design is the flexibility to quickly deploy and support new services. Designing a flexible architecture that can support new applications in a short time frame can result in a significant competitive advantage. The basic data center network design is based on a proven layered approach that has been tested and improved over the past several years in some of the largest data center implementations in the world. The layered approach is the foundation of a data center design that seeks to improve scalability, performance, flexibility, resiliency, and maintenance.

Mobile and virtualized workloads, cloud applications, big data, heterogeneous devices: they are all growing in your business, demanding previously unimagined capacity and performance from your servers and data center fabric. And that demand is not slacking. Your employees, applications, and competitive advantage increasingly depend on it. Those servers and applications need to be fed. And if you have not started planning for 40 gigabits per second (Gbps) to the server rack, you will need to soon.

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.

When was the last time you thought about your disaster recovery plan? Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, or floods can occur anytime and disable your data center, with little to no warning. Hacker activities like a denial of service attack can also take down your systems unexpectedly. Then you have the more mundane risks such as human error and hardware or software failures. The only predictable thing to say about these risks is that at some point, on some scale, you’ll have to recover your data center from downtime. When it comes to disaster readiness, proactive planning is the key to success. Every business, regardless of size, needs to have a well-tested disaster recovery plan in place. Every minute your systems are down, the financial implications grow. Take the assessment to see where your disaster recovery plan ranks. Then learn about next steps and more information.

No business is immune to the threat of IT downtime caused by natural and manmade disasters. Natural disasters—such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, and floods—can happen with little to no advanced warning. But the bigger risk is often human-induced events—from simple IT configuration errors to significant data center problems. If you lack a rock-solid disaster recovery (DR) plan, any of these unpredictable events—natural or manmade—could bring your business and its revenue streams to a halt. Yet many organizations are not well prepared for the unknown. The randomness of such events lulls people into a sense of false security—“That’s not likely to happen here.” While you can hope to avoid events that threaten the continuity of your business, the reality remains unchanged: Disasters happen—so you need to prepare for them. Are you prepared? Please download this eBook to find out!

A though leadership white paper discusses how virtualization, cloud computing, and the proliferation of smart devices are helping companies meet their goals and be more effective with their IT investments but are placing increased demands on the datacenter network. Organizations can no longer afford to treat the datacenter network as an afterthought, and it is not sufficient to simply throw more ports or bandwidth at the problem. IBM offers a portfolio of datacenter network planning, integration, and management services designed to maximize customers' DCN success. By working with customers to plan and implement the appropriate network design at the beginning of an IT project, IBM can help customers meet their business requirements, minimize operating costs, and build in flexibility for the future.
