Network operations teams can no longer ignore the application layer. Application experience can make or
break a digital enterprise, and today most enterprises are digital. To deliver optimal performance, network
operations tools must be application-aware. However, application-awareness in the network and security tool
layer is expensive and difficult to scale. Enterprises can mitigate these challenges with a network visibility
architecture that includes application-aware network packet brokers (NPBs).
EMA recommends that today’s network operations teams modernize their approach with full application
visibility. EMA research has found that network teams are increasingly focused on directly addressing security
risk reduction, service quality, end-user experience, and application performance. All of these new network
operations benchmarks will require deeper application-level visibility. For instance, a network team focused
on service quality will want to take a top-down approach to perfo
As ride-hailing, e-commerce and food delivery services continue to grow, the value of curbside space is increasingly apparent.

To reduce urban congestion, ensure optimal roadway performance management, encourage new mobility solutions and facilitate on-demand delivery efficiency, it is vital that the curb be better utilized.
In this eBook, gain insight from six visionaries and thought leaders with a stake in the landscape of urban mobility as they share how to better optimize curbside space.
There are many challenging tasks when developing autonomous driving features to cope with the various changes to the environment. Often lane markings are faded or are covered with snow or dirt and can be difficult for a camera-based detection system. In this report, VSI addresses the application of HD map assets to improve the safety and performance of automated vehicle features within the context of lane keeping and trajectories.
VSI has been examining applications of HD maps in our test vehicle. In a previous report, we discussed map-based Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) using the advised speed attributes from HERE’s HD map data. In this report, we apply HERE’s HD map data to a lane keeping application and examine performance of lane keeping with a map-based approach compared to a camera and computer vision-based approach.
Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.
Data is the DNA of modern healthcare. As healthcare technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and patient data management and security evolve, emerging approaches for disease treatment and prevention—like precision medicine and healthcare content management—are becoming more necessary. Precision medicine is about moving from generic to more precise, population-focused diagnostics and treatment by factoring in data from patients’ genes, environment, lifestyle factors and family history, into clinical decision-making for earlier, more accurate diagnoses, and more effective treatment and prevention. Data is at the heart of enabling doctors and scientists to execute on this mission. Additionally, rapidly changing regulations throughout the world are affecting the management of all healthcare data. Infinidat removes data management barriers from this level of data interaction by removing isolated islands of storage and allowing much more data to reside on a single, high-performance, h

The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS

The tipping point has arrived. Large enterprises are planning their next-generation datacenters around flash-based storage, and for good reason. Flash arrays provide read and write performance that is orders of magnitude faster than spinning media at a total cost of ownership that is on par with disk and will soon be lower. The benefits not only include improved application performance, but more consistent performance, lower latency, reduced storage footprint, streamlined storage administration, and lower operating costs. These advantages are too beneficial to your business to ignore. That’s why flash is becoming the standard for new storage investments.
Dans cette ère de disruption numérique incessante, les entreprises doivent améliorer leur agilité pour être prêtes à saisir les opportunités. Pour certains observateurs, les technologies du cloud semblaient être la solution idéale, capables d'apporter des réponses en matière d'agilité, d'évolutivité et de coût. Mais après avoir adopté ces technologies, les entreprises ont souvent constaté que les caractéristiques de performances, de sécurité et de conformité du cloud ne répondaient pas pleinement à leurs besoins. En outre, une idée reçue tenace laissait à penser que le cloud public était moins coûteux que le cloud privé, alors que nous savons maintenant que ce n'est pas toujours le cas. Les entreprises les plus avisées ont réalisé depuis longtemps que la plus grande agilité est proposée par les solutions d'informatique hybride, qui associent des services hors site et sur site.
