Today’s organizations are becoming more innovative and dynamic by adopting mobility, IoT, analytics and cloud technologies. With this, come growing demands for network scale, agility and threat protection which call for an intent-based network. The Cisco® Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) gives you comprehensive intent-based networking across your campus, branch and WAN with robust wired, wireless, and routing solutions.
This Porter Consulting report analyzes enterprise campus networking solutions from Aruba Networks, Cisco, HP and Ruckus Wireless. The paper examines key business and technology trends affecting enterprises with 500-5000 employees. We identify fundamental requirements IT decision makers should consider when evaluating campus networking solutions including:
• Ensuring simple, secure and cost-effective user access
• Supplying adequate bandwidth and quality of service
• Streamlining deployment and operations
• Supporting emerging standards and technology requirements
Our goal is to provide business and technical decision makers with a guide to the key players and their strengths.
Higher education is in the midst of fundamental changes that are reshaping the future of both the mission and the business. As technology helps campuses better reach beyond their traditional physical borders, decision-makers expect IT to offer the solutions and leadership needed to deliver better services to students, staff, and researchers while simplifying IT costs and responsibilities. This solution brief addresses how vCloud Air built on the popular vSphere virtualization platform, is helping higher education IT respond to today’s performance, manageability, and security challenges.
In this Technology Adoption Profile we explore the current state of replication in SMB IT departments and in particular the use of SAN-based replication. We find strong demand for both synchronous and asynchronous SAN-based replication, as well as the need to replicate data within the SMB’s own data center facilities, either to a colocated secondary array or to one within 5 km [approximately 3 miles](a campus or metro-style deployment). We also find that in order for SMBs to protect more data using replication, they need replication solutions that are non-disruptive, easy to use, and inexpensive.

The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) is a public research university and one of the 10 campuses of the University of California system. Its secondary storage was a combination of multiple point solutions. The UI/setup and maintenance was complex. Maintaining multiple licensing and maintenance agreements negatively impacted the administrative cost. The skyrocketing cost for additional backup capacity limited the team’s ability to expand their backup protection to many critical systems. With Cohesity's unified hyperconverged secondary storage platform, the IT team provided a single solution for all 13 departments to consolidate their backups on one platform, and scale-out as required. Read the case study and get details on how UCSB consolidated everything from backup to recovery, analytics to
monitoring and alerting.
