Can You Really Support Business Continuity Requirements?

Published By: VMTurbo     Published Date: Mar 25, 2015
Intelligent N+X Redundancy, Placement Affinities, & Future Proofing in the Virtualized Data Center Virtualization brought about the ability to simplify business continuity management in IT. Workload portability and data replication capabilities mean that physical infrastructure failures no longer need impact application services, and they can rapidly be recovered even in the event of complete site failure. However, Enterprises and Service Providers face new challenges ensuring they have enough compute capacity in their virtualized data centers to support their business continuity requirements, while at the same time not over provisioning infrastructure capacity resulting in unnecessary capital expenditure.

Are Your Capacity Management Processes Fit for the Cloud Era?

Published By: VMTurbo     Published Date: Mar 25, 2015
An Intelligent Roadmap for Capacity Planning Many organizations apply overly simplistic principles to determine requirements for compute capacity in their virtualized data centers. These principles are based on a resource allocation model which takes the total amount of memory and CPU allocated to all virtual machines in a compute cluster, and assumes a defined level of over provisioning (e.g. 2:1, 4:1, 8:1, 12:1) in order to calculate the requirement for physical resources. Often managed in spreadsheets or simple databases, and augmented by simple alert-based monitoring tools, the resource allocation model does not account for actual resource consumption driven by each application workload running in the operational environment, and inherently corrodes the level of efficiency that can be driven from the underlying infrastructure.

Increase Rack Cooling Efficiency and Solve Heat-Related Problems

Published By: Tripp Lite     Published Date: Sep 11, 2014
Cooling tends to take a back seat to other concerns when server rooms and small to mid-size data centers are first built. As computing needs grow, increased heat production can compromise equipment performance and cause shutdowns. Haphazard data center expansion creates cooling inefficiencies that magnify these heat-related problems. Users may assume that they need to increase cooling capacity, but this is expensive and often unnecessary. In most cases, low-cost rack cooling best practices will solve heat-related problems. Best practices optimize airflow, increase efficiency, prevent downtime and reduce costs.

Hybrid Cloud Myths

Published By: Equinix     Published Date: Mar 26, 2015
Enterprises grapple with a host of challenges that are spurring the creation of hybrid clouds: collections of computing infrastructure spread across multiple data centers and multiple cloud providers. This new concept often provokes uncertainty, which must be addressed head on. As more applications and computing resources move to the cloud, enterprises will become more dependent on cloud vendors, whether the issue is access, hosting, management, or any number of other services. Cloud consumers want to avoid vendor lock-in—having only one cloud provider. They want to know that they will have visibility into data and systems across multiple platforms and providers. They want to be able to move servers and storage around without a negative impact on application availability. The good news is that more solutions become available every day, but with a learning curve and numerous management challenges and considerations. This CITO Research paper provides advice for managers about how to c

A Solid Data Center Strategy Starts with Interconnectivity

Published By: Equinix     Published Date: Mar 26, 2015
Connections are great. Having a network to connect to is even better. Humans have been connecting, in one form or another, throughout history. Our cities were born from the drive to move closer to each other so that we might connect. And while the need to connect hasn’t changed, the way we do it definitely has. Nowhere is this evolution more apparent than in business. In today’s landscape, business is more virtual, geographically dispersed and mobile than ever, with companies building new data centers and clustering servers in separate locations. The challenge is that companies vary hugely in scale, scope and direction. Many are doing things not even imagined two decades ago, yet all of them rely on the ability to connect, manage and distribute large stores of data. The next wave of innovation relies on the ability to do this dynamically.

Best Practices for Securing Workloads in Amazon Web Services

Published By: Evident.io     Published Date: Nov 23, 2015
AWS is the most widely deployed public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solution in the world and is a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for IaaS (see "Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service"). AWS offers a large number of built-in security capabilities (see Note 1), and questions on the proper practices for securing workloads in AWS are increasing.1 AWS is a not a "consumer grade" IaaS cloud. It is a market leader, with a portfolio of security capabilities and security ecosystem partners unmatched by other IaaS providers. However, simply moving existing workloads to AWS without rethinking security tools, processes and system management will result in workloads that are less secure than they were when located within enterprise data centers. Conversely, a properly managed and secured workload in AWS will be at least as — and, in most cases, more — secure than in an enterprise data center.

Straight Talk: 7 Considerations to Future-Proof Your Load Balancing Strategy

Published By: Avi Networks     Published Date: Mar 17, 2016
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.
