ISL Trunking: Automatic Traffic Management at the Heart of the SAN

Source: QLogic Corporation
Permanent node-to-node data paths through a service area network (SAN) fabric are surprisingly inefficient. Some interswitch links (ISLs) become oversubscribed, while others are underused, and don’t allow you to maximize the function of your existing switch investments. Unclog your SAN’s data paths—and increase reliability and availability, as well as your return on investment.

The Importance and Benefits of Automatic Technician Scheduling in Field Service Operations
Source: IFS Deciding which technicians to assign to service orders, and when to schedule and dispatch them can be a tricky if not complicated process. And that’s not all! Service demands and schedules are incredibly dynamic and constantly changing throughout the day. Most service companies today require an automated and real-time approach to scheduling field service staff. Know the benefits of implementing a dynamic scheduling engine. Read More...
Linked Enterprise Data: Principles, Uses, and Benefits
Source: Antidot Over time, as a result of operating pressures, the proliferation of tools, and changing technology, the corporate information system (IS) has become fragmented. Whereas the database formed the heart of the system 20 years ago, today there are countless sources of data: ERP, customer relations systems, sales management, internal directories, intranets, extranets, websites, etc. Yet this huge quantity of data is not being mined for the wealth and scope of its potential by either employees or information system applications, mainly because the data is closed off in an array of silos. Read this white paper to see how linked enterprise data (LED) can help. Read More...
Linked Enterprise Data: Data at the heart of the company
Source: Antidot The data silos of today's business information systems (IS) applications, and the pressure from the current economic climate, globalization, and the Internet make it critical for companies to learn how to manage and extract value from their data. Linked enterprise data (LED) combines the benefits of business intelligence (BI), master data management (MDM), service-oriented architecture (SOA), and search engines to create links among existing data, break down data walls, provide an open, secure, and long-term technological environment, and reduce complexity—read this white paper to find out how.

PacketController Net Neutrality QoS
Source: PacketController Networks This white paper describes PacketController’s net neutrality methodology. Through PacketController's automatic TCP rate-limiting technology, it does not matter what the traffic is, or if it's encrypted, as the algorithms at this level fundamentally work per subscriber. Should there be any unidentified traffic (and there will always be unidentified trafic), PacketController's unique fair allocation of bandwidth automatically ensures fairness across the network and ensures no one subscriber gets an unfair share of bandwidth.The paper also describes the typical process to implement PacketController in ISP environment to manage bandwidth investment and increase network performance.

SQL Server Technical Briefing
Source: Microsoft iSCSI storage area networks (SANs) offer an alternative for building SANs. Consolidating storage in a SAN offers storage management and scaling benefits for data centers, and iSCSI support in Windows Server 2003 makes connecting servers to an iSCSI SAN easier and more affordable. Read this technical briefing to understand best practices and the benefits of using an iSCSI SAN with SQL Server 2005. 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.
