IT organizations and service providers are investing heavily into building open source clouds powered by OpenStack and KVM hypervisor, primarily to reduce licensing costs and to avoid vendor lock-in.
Across the globe, many companies choose a Cisco networking infrastructure to service their physical and virtual networking needs for enterprise and data center operations. When implementing a large-scale Cisco network, monitoring tools typically rely upon Cisco technologies such as NetFlow, SPAN, RSPAN, ERSPAN, and VACL for traffic visibility. Traffic is extracted and sent to the tools. However, these technologies are often difficult to scale and can modify traffic (e.g. encapsulate traffic) making it difficult to support the diverse monitoring needs of network, security, application, and server groups as they strive to maintain maximized uptime, secure the network, realize operational efficiencies, and gain greater insight into business decision making.
IT organizations today face unprecedented challenges. Internal business customers continue to demand rapid delivery of innovative services to respond to outside threats and opportunities. At the same time, it is not unusual for organizations to issue broad mandates to cut back on spending budgets. In these tough times, the adoption of disruptive technologies holds the key to improving efficiency and truly accomplishing more with less.
Mobility, cloud, and consumerization of IT are all major themes playing out in the IT industry today—all of which are fundamentally changing the way we think about managing IT infrastructure. Mobility is driving significant productivity gains. Users, devices and indeed applications are all mobile. Users today access their applications, data, and content from whatever location they are at—be it from the office or from a hotel lobby or from an airport, using whatever device they have at their disposal such as their laptop, smartphone or tablet, and leveraging whatever technology is available—from wired Ethernet, to WiFi to 3G/4G.
This white paper presents the disruptive forces of virtualization and digitalization in the data center and networks; the key capabilities and steps to master data center transformation; the significance of traffic intelligence to managing IT performance and agility as business demands change; and the need for a proactive, cost-effective approach to traffic visibility that minimizes data center downtime. It also lists the necessary tech enablers that make such an approach possible.
Cloud computing comes in several forms: public, private and hybrid. This report examines the nature of hybrid cloud computing for IT leaders as cloud begins to grow up.
