Network Architecture is the design of a communications system, which includes the backbones, routers, switches, wireless access points, access methods and protocols used. This may refer only to the access method in a LAN, such as Ethernet or Token Ring
This white paper examines the DDoS threat spectrum including conventional network attacks, HTTP and SSL floods, and an emerging wave of low-bandwidth threats, plus the new threat vectors likely to target emerging service platforms.
GigaOM’s research analyst Mark Leary and Silver Peak’s virtualization and cloud expert, Vivian Xu, discuss the benefits of a SDN (Software-Defined Network). See how industry leaders are leveraging SDN principles to that overcome the challenges of moving data across distance and create more flexibility.
While the potential value of XenApp is high, that value will not be fully realized if the solution does not perform as needed or expected. This Enterprise Management Associates® (EMA™) white paper reviews the key challenges and requirements for performance management specifically related to Citrix XenApp deployments and examines the Riverbed Performance Management solution in that light.
The focus of this paper is to highlight the features and capabilities of Cascade Pilot that NetForecast has come to rely on. It has been used when performing a study for a client or performing an internal study to extend its knowledge about a particular topic.
Riverbed Technology and VMware are working together to provide comprehensive monitoring and troubleshooting for VMware VXLAN using Riverbed Cascade. Cascade products are a cost-effective, application-aware network performance management (NPM) solution that provides real-time, end-to-end visibility into the performance of critical business applications across the physical network and SDN virtual overlay network.
Riverbed Cascade provides enterprise-wide network and application visibility with a full set of application-centric, site-centric, and business-centric views. While Cascade can coexist or integrate with a variety of other IT management solutions, it will likely become your first line of defense against application performance problems.
Managing performance in a virtual network and in software-defined networks has remained a critical challenge. VMware and Riverbed have collaborated to provide visibility into these blind spots. Read this 2-page Impact Brief from Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) to learn what this means for shops that are embracing VXLAN today.
Keep your network running at peak performance with insights from the Forrester report How real-time application awareness translates into speed and reliability; the Enterprise Management Associates report How Riverbed Cascade helps you discover, monitor, troubleshoot and report on performance challenges; and the International Herald Tribune case study on keeping automated newspaper production up at all times.
With the relentless pace of growth in applications and services, your corporate network has become even more critical than before, and the stakes have never been higher. Download this white paper from Enterprise Management Associates to learn how Riverbed Cascade stacks up as a solution for discovering, monitoring, troubleshooting and reporting on your critical IT performance challenges.
With an estimated 1.8 million branch offices in the US, not only is critical data being dispersed across the enterprise, but also applications. Organizations have invested in monitoring tools to help assure network and application performance, but do these tools have the visibility across the network to deliver real-time insights?
A Gigamon Visibility Fabric™ solution can extend visibility wherever critical data may exist. It eliminates the need to facilitate resources for troubleshooting and the need to install monitoring tools at every remote site. By doing so, it simplifies IT operations and centralizes monitoring tools that can reduce OPEX and CAPEX.
Simplifying IT operations by centralizing monitoring tools and connecting them into a Gigamon Visibility Fabric™ can reduce OPEX and CAPEX. These monitoring tools include systems used for application performance management (APM), customer experience management (CEM), data loss prevention (DLP), deep packet inspection (DPI), intrusion detection systems (IDS), intrusion prevention systems (IPS), network performance management (NPM), network analysis, and packet capture devices. This white paper explains how this new approach to monitoring and management of IT infrastructure provides pervasive visibility across campus, branch, virtualized and, ultimately, SDN islands.
With critical data and applications dispersed across the enterprise, IT teams struggle to manage, analyze, and secure their networks. Even within a single location this can be a daunting task. Organizations have invested in monitoring tools to assure network and application performance, as well as security, but do these tools have the visibility across the network to deliver real-time insights?
A Gigamon Visibility Fabric™ solution can extend visibility wherever critical data may exist to address issues like oversubscription, tool proliferation, and TAP/SPAN port contention. By centralizing monitoring and simplifying IT, organizations are better able to manage, analyze, and secure the networks.
Between the proliferation of mobile devices and the ever increasing amount of content on the web, DNS usage has seen a huge increase in recent years. Meanwhile, DNS continues to be a tempting target for attackers, and when they succeed in disrupting DNS, all external data center services are affected. For organizations confronting these growth and security challenges, F5’s new full proxy architecture for DNS provides a complete solution for global, local, and cloud load balancing.
Unified Communications, or UC, has no official or even widely accepted definition. Pundits, analysts and journalists all have their own descriptions. So do vendors – theirs just happen to fit their own products perfectly. But this lack of consensus doesn’t mean the term is meaningless. In fact, unified communications is a complex but very real phenomenon. And this phenomenon has the potential to radically improve businesses’ ability to communicate.
