IT Infrastructure refers to the computerized networks, intelligent terminals, and accompanying applications and services people use to access, create, disseminate, and utilize digital information; the equipment, software, services, and products used in storing, processing, transmitting, and displaying all forms of information.
Interconnecting three or more sites across a metro or wide area network has traditionally been accomplished via a hub and spoke network topology using Private Lines, Frame Relay or IP VPNs over the Internet. Ethernet services support hub and spoke topologies but also support an “any-to-any” network topology similar to a LAN but delivered over a wide area. This latter capability is unique to Ethernet services and cannot be cost effectively delivered using legacy point-to-point technologies such as Frame Relay or IP VPNs.
This paper discusses two options for multi-site connectivity using Ethernet services. One option discusses the classical hub and spoke topology using Ethernet Virtual Private Lines (EVPL). The other option discusses the “any-to-any” topology using an Ethernet Private LAN (EP-LAN) service. Through examples, the paper illustrates the capabilities of the two approaches and their benefits.
To get the most out of their computer automation initiatives, healthcare organizations must take a step back, assess their current IT environments, adjust as needed and make important decisions regarding the future of their IT infrastructures.
The risks of irregular maintenance and non-compliance of IT and security policies are not only measured in dollars lost but in lives saved. With such a complex and critical proposition, efficiency is paramount to fulfilling the organization’s mission of providing quality, timely patient care.
The risks of irregular maintenance and non-compliance of IT and security policies can cost the organization much in terms of fines, lost opportunities and a damaged reputation. With such a serious and complex challenge, employing an efficient and comprehensive solution is paramount to minimize risk and instill confidence in the organization’s ability to fulfill on its compliance requirements.
Nobody can afford to lose data. But managing data, including backup and availability, in locations can present many logistical and technological challenges that bring complexity, expense, and risk. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. A new branch converged infrastructure approach allows organizations to project virtual servers and data to remote offices, providing for local access and performance while storing the data in centralized data centers. Enterprises can now do business across the globe in any location without putting data at risk.

VMstore is the industry’s leading storage solution designed for virtualized environments, and Tintri Global Center adds the visibility and control to enable all VMstore systems to function as one. This winning combination of intelligent storage and deep insight makes Tintri the best choice for simply and predictably scaling storage in virtualized environments.
Tintri smart storage addresses the mismatch between storage and the demands of virtualization. Built on the industry’s first and leading intelligent application-aware architecture, VMstore and Tintri Global Center have the intelligence to deliver unparalleled performance and efficiency and end-to-end insights into the infrastructure, while allowing for unmatched VM control.
Application-aware storage is designed to help achieve those goals by giving IT leaders and storage administrators VM-level visibility into application performance and availability, and by properly provisioning storage resources to meet those requirements in a virtualized environment.
This Field Report validates our impressive lab findings with feedback from the field: six customers who have Tintri storage in production environments. While each customer has a unique own story to tell, we found that everyone documented a compelling value proposition based on TCO factors. Throughout our research we found that Tintri’s approach provides significantly lower TCO than traditional storage solutions. Here is a quick review of some of the most significant items in light of what we’ve just heard.
