VA Linux Releases NAS Server
Trying to break into the growing Network-Attached Storage market, Linux-based hardware manufacturer VA Linux has announced the release of its 9205 NAS storage

linux network  to this machine. VA Linux has no published benchmark data, so performance may be an issue. For those with more money, the Network Appliance NetFiler840 provides high performance, in terms of operations/second and overall response time (as measured by the SPECsfs97 benchmark) and throughput (as measured by NetBench). Unfortunately for those customers wanting the 12TB version , it will not be available until NetApp's software (Data ONTAP) is upgraded, probably in January, 2001. Until then, the upper limit

Open Source and Linux, IT Services Software Evaluation Report

The model of IT services for Free and Open Source software (FOSS) helps identify the characteristics clients require from consultants, integrators, resellers, etc. to develop, support, migrate, and implement enterprise solutions or services that are based on, or are themselves, FOSS. In addition, it supports standard criteria important to enterprise Linux rollouts or migrations.

Counting the Cost of Network Efficiency


It is hard to quantify the costs of poor network or application management, but they include lost productivity due to time spent fixing problems and increased capital and operating expenses. But when creating IT budgets, organizations need to consider the impact of investment in network and application management on overall revenues. IT efficiency should be a priority item for any corporate agenda, and executives need to understand that the network is not only a core part of what their organization does, but plays a key role in achieving business goals.

There is actually a direct correlation between network performance and application performance. There is of course intrinsic value in network hardware and software, but more importantly many people in the organization rely on the applications that the network supports—so if the network is running slowly, users’ applications will slow down too. Hence a budget priority should be where changes in the network are needed to avoid problems arising or improve application performance and hence overall productivity.

This white paper makes a case for the organizational need for solutions and tools which provide network performance information and help identify problems and their causes and areas where improvements should be made, making it possible for budgetary decisions to be based on performance data. It looks at questions the IT team needs to ask to get to the heart of network problems and find the best solution, as well as three categories of network improvements, and also details how an AANPM, or application aware network performance management solution, takes an application-centric approach to network issues and can lead to faster problem solving, reducing downtime, increasing productivity, and saving troubleshooting time.

Application-aware Network Performance Management (AANPM), and Why You Really Need It


Application-aware network performance management (AANPM) is an emerging method of monitoring, troubleshooting, and analyzing network and application systems. AANPM solutions can provide important capabilities, including advanced and automated ways to filter packet information and detect anomalies, and a holistic and top-down approach that can provide the means to capture, track, and analyze large amounts of detailed information, and enable the detection of issues, errors, and risks. In this post, TEC's data management analyst Jorge Garcia explains more about AANPM and why IT departments should be informed about its uses and benefits.
