SQL Server Technical Briefing


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.

Another option for iSCSI deployments is iSCSI Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) . HBAs can benefit SQL Server by offloading the iSCSI processing resources from the server CPU onto the adapter card. In high-performance database environments this may drastically improve performance for both server resources and iSCSI throughput. It is important to properly configure your Windows Read More

Understanding the PCI Data Security Standard


The payment card industry data security standard (PCI DSS) defines a comprehensive set of requirements to enhance and enforce payment account data security in a proactive rather than passive way. These include security management, policies, procedures, network architectures, software design, and other protective measures. Get a better understanding of the PCC DSS and learn the costs and benefits of compliance.

At any point on this long and potentially hazardous path, third parties can intercept and inspect the contents of the transmissions on their networks. This establishes a need to encrypt all sensitive information-a designation for which payment and account information is Read More

Linux Laptops from Dell


Dell now has begun selling two models of its laptops with Linux preinstalled.

One hurdle: Laptops often come with proprietary hardware that are more difficult for Linux programmers to support, though informal sites such as Linux on Laptops offer extensive help. IBM also has made sure Linux works with a model of its ThinkPad laptops, but there were issues with the Windows-only modem and other hardware features. Dell got around the modem problem by using a PC Card Read More

Five Steps to Prepare Your Network for IPv6


In the coming years, a new Internet protocol, IPv6, will gradually succeed IPv4. The two Internet protocols aren’t interchangeable or compatible, so organizations will have to run them both in parallel on their networks for some time. This checklist offers five steps as a phased, cost-effective approach to move to the next-generation Internet protocol.

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.

Network Design: A Sole-source, Service-based Approach


Typically, useful network documentation requires a significant investment in time and effort. But because enterprise networks are in constant flux, many companies do not document their network on a regular basis. However, by adopting a sole source, service-based solution for network shapes and stencils, organizations can perform mission-critical documentation more regularly—in ways that are simpler, faster and more effective.

Winning on the WAN: How to Validate Network Applications Before You Deploy


Making sure that your applications run properly over private and public wide area networks (WANs) is particularly challenging for applications that are sensitive to network conditions. The only way to have confidence that a given application will operate with acceptable performance once it is deployed is to test it under expected (and maybe unexpected) production network conditions—prior to deployment.
