Stackable Switches: A Better Way to Scale SAN Infrastructure

Source: QLogic Corporation
Fibre channel storage area networks (SANs) used to be implemented in only high-end enterprise class data centers, but this is no longer the case. SANs have become more affordable and can be widely implemented without sacrificing performance. When you need to expand your frame-based computer network, consider stackable switches as a cost-effective solution for the infrastructure of a fibre channel SAN.

Enabling Real-Time Sharing and Synchronization over the WAN
Source: Solace Systems Inc. Driven by increasing business demands and the availability of technologies like in-memory databases, change data capture software, big data storage systems, and complex event processing engines, some organizations are looking to enterprise data grids to accelerate, optimize, and scale their IT infrastructure. Managing big data scale transactional and event stream information is about more than just storing massive amounts of data; it requires the intelligent collection, filtration, sharing and exposure of information via enterprise apps connected by LANs, WANs, and cloud/grid environments.

Comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence Solutions
Source: Birst For many companies, traditional business intelligence (BI) software is costly and resource-intensive. So are open source alternatives that require significant configuration and integration. In contrast, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions can reduce the cost of a BI deployment by providing automation and pre-integration. Compare total cost of ownership (TCO) for traditional, open source, and SaaS BI solutions. Read More...

Digital KVM Switches Are Quite Popular-Analog KVM Switches Still Deserve Respect
Source: ATEN International Co., Ltd Digital keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) switches can be less costly as they rely on existing infrastructure and don’t have circuitry for network conversion. Analog switches cost less per port and are better suited to graphically intense environments. Either type allows increased computer density because relatively few monitors, keyboards, and mouses are needed and because consoles can be outside the data center. Find out more. Read More...
Simplifying SAN Scalability through Stackable Switches
Source: Strategic Communications, Inc. Small to medium businesses (SMBs) must adapt to technology innovations as well as the demand-driven consumer market. The need for small computer system interfaces (SCSIs) on each server host, along with enhanced security needs have driven SMB costs upwards. Is there a solution? Yes. Storage area networks (SANs) built on stackable switches help reduce costs, and are a viable approach for SMBs. Read More...
Network Traffic Engineering Guidelines for Fibre Channel Switches
Source: QLogic Corporation Scalability—or performance? In the past, storage area network (SAN) architects had to choose one over the other with regard to their SANs. Now, however, compromise is no longer necessary. Stackable switch solutions allow for seamless scaling and high performance—which means you can breathe as easily as your data transfers.
