Unified communications (UC) is a powerful technology with a multifaceted value proposition. UC can significantly reduce the cost of communications but more importantly raises productivity by streamlining the collaboration process. Download now to read how UC can increase your company productivity.
Most organizations will eventually utilize multiple network access paths to the cloud—road warrior salesmen, for instance, will typically not take the same path as a primary business site. The focus of this white paper is to define the different access paths available for multiple sites with different needs.
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.
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.

How to effectively troubleshoot your VDI deployment Virtual desktop infrastructure has come a long way since the first steps were taken a decade ago to run desktop workloads in the data center.
While more pervasive today, VDI technologies are latency-sensitive, and wholly dependent on the network. Complaints of poor end-user experience persist, especially over the WAN at branch offices where bandwidth constraints and latency delays are common.
But there is a way to ensure consistent and reliable VDI performance to deliver:
Enhanced planning and control
Read this brief to learn how the Riverbed® Cascade® application-aware network performance management (NPM) solution unlocks VDI visibility.
As a network manager, application manager or security manager, you need systems in place that can collect data across your WAN, continuously analyze the data to discover problems, and allow you to troubleshoot issues as soon as they occur. A packet capture and analysis solution is an essential part of your toolset, since it provides the most granular level of information and can help troubleshoot the toughest problems. Riverbed Cascade has fundamentally changed the economics of network performance management. Learn more..
