Datacenter Design: Optimizing Networks for Evolving Traffic


Data center network design architecture is changing to reflect growing IT trends in distributed applications and virtual computing. New computing models require a flatter network that is flexible enough to handle unpredictable traffic patterns. Find out what that means for your company in this interview with Cindy Borovick, Vice President of IDC’s Enterprise Communications and Datacenter Networks programs.

Optimizing Bandwidth: Why Size Doesn’t Always Matter


Network managers have to balance the need for increased speed of response and the best possible end user performance, and the need to reduce costs.

Traffic on the network expands to fill the available bandwidth, resulting in degraded performance across the most congested links. Network managers have to be able to show that a link is experiencing congestion for a significant amount of time due to legitimate business usage before they can add additional capacity. But approaches such as peak or average utilization and traffic totals provide limited insight into and understanding of network congestion.

To optimize the use of existing capacity and make the business case for more bandwidth, network managers need to ask themselves a number of questions. In this white paper, a new approach to getting needed information about network congestion is discussed. Principles to consider for effective capacity planning are discussed, as well as the limitations to traditional approaches to managing network capacity, and a solution called burst utilization is given, to measure performance and save network managers time.

A burst-style view shows the links spending the most amount of time in a congested state and the time in that state. Using this information, the network manager can explore why the link is busy and whether additional bandwidth is needed, and identify any links where capacity could be reduced. By using existing bandwidth more effectively, they may be able to improve the end user experience.

Input/Output StreamGuard Implementation and Uses


Ideally, your service area network (SAN) permits an uninterrupted flow of data all the time. Unfortunately, with changes to the SAN fabric—when a server comes online, or when storage ports are added—the attendant tape backups might cause a serious lapse in the flow of data. However, an interoperable solution can keep registered state change notifications (RSCNs) from making your SAN go haywire.

Keeping Cash Flow in Focus While Driving Business Performance


One of the most basic business axioms, held dear by all firms but especially small companies, is that cash flow is king. Customer payments are essential for fueling all other business activity, from staff salaries, to raw materials, to rent. Growing firms need to be especially attentive to cash flow because sales increases typically require new investments associated with product or service production before payments are received.

Extending Network Visibility by Leveraging NetFlow and sFlow Technologies


NetFlow and sFlow are traffic reporting mechanisms that manufacturers have embedded into enterprise-level switches and routers. Until recently, analysis vendors have viewed these technologies as a competitive threat rather than an opportunity. But now that NetFlow and sFlow support are appearing in commercial analysis tools, IT administrators can better leverage this free visibility lying latent in their switches and routers.
