BYOD Without Tears: The Impact and Challenge for Network Engineers
Bring your own device (BYOD) is as much a sign of cultural change as it is an indicator of prevailing technology trends. But network performance and security

network computing mag  Impact and Challenge for Network Engineers Bring your own device (BYOD) is as much a sign of cultural change as it is an indicator of prevailing technology trends. But network performance and security concerns can arise when employees want to use their personal devices at work. This white paper looks at the challenges of integrating BYOD with corporate networks in a way that BYOD does not compromise connectivity or performance for established wired and wireless users.

Grid Computing Update: Pilots Move to Mainstream


We are now seeing a high level of uptake of grid computing, with pilots resulting in implementations. However, these implementations are based on advanced clustering of single applications—and large-scale grid implementations covering an enterprise’s total IT infrastructure are still rare. The key to mainstream adoption may lie in a better understanding of the business value of grid computing.

The Egenera Processing Area Network (PAN) Architecture


The past decade saw the emergence of the storage area network as a way to centralize, consolidate, and virtualize deployment and management of storage resources. This architecture was developed to address complex problems that arose as storage moved from a central point (the mainframe-based data center) to a distributed model due to growth in departmental systems and applications.

Grid Computing--Time to Consolidate?


Grid infrastructure is maturing as an enterprise form of distributed computing—and with an increasingly wide range of applications able to make use of its high performance and lower cost, it’s not too late to invest in grid technology. However many “early adopter” investment banks now have multiple disparate grids, and face the problem of how to consolidate them.

Product Review: GFI's LANguard Network Security Scanner


Performing patch management is one of the most tedious chores that must be completed by network administrators. While there are many patch management tools available, they can be expensive, have sharp learning curves, or are not deployable across all software platforms. One third party solution, however, GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner, version 5, is an affordable option that can scan the network and deploy patches efficiently while looking for other potential security vulnerabilities.

network computing mag  Review: GFI's LANguard Network Security Scanner Taking Patch Management to a New Level Without a doubt, one of the most tedious chores that network administrators must routinely perform is patch management. Hardly a week goes by that Microsoft doesn't release some sort of patch. It is the network administrator's responsibility to download the latest patches and apply them to all of the organization's computers. As tedious as patch management is though, it is one chore that really shouldn't be Read More

Network Convergence: The Unified Network Platform


As proprietary network hardware appliances become obsolete, unified network platforms (UNPs) are slowly gaining momentum. UNPs are the new paradigm for networking and security—operating on a single system that can be implemented on off-the-shelf hardware. With a UNP, organizations can design, build, manage, and maintain secure networks, without the limitations and expense of vendor proprietary hardware and software.

I Want My Private Cloud


Although many organizations are considering reaping the benefits of a cloud computing platform, they have concerns with the handling of sensitive information on a public cloud platform. An alternate option is available, and it means having our own private cloud. This article discusses aspects of private cloud computing and its advantages and drawbacks for organizations considering the adoption of a private cloud strategy.

A variant of a private cloud regards having an independent environment within a public cloud using a technology called virtualization—this is called a “virtual private cloud.” Such technology makes it possible to have an independent infrastructure that resides in a bigger space. This subset of the cloud computing infrastructure enables organizations to have an independent platform via an IPsec private connection. Some software providers, Read More
