This guide will provide the steps necessary to configure a Microsoft Fast Track Small Implementation cloud built on EMC VSPEX, which is built on Cisco Unified Computing System and EMC VNXe technologies.
Cisco's Virtualized Multi-tenant Data Center (VMDC) system defines an end-to-end architecture, which an organization may reference for the migration or build out of virtualized, multi-tenant data centers for new cloud-based service models such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
We’re experiencing a disruptive period of data transformation—and managing today’s database infrastructures during this disruptive period is not only critically important, but also more challenging than ever. An historic growth in data and cutting-edge technology trends, like the Internet of Everything, is causing an explosion in connections and data creation that is reshaping everything we do.
Increasingly, clues to what is happening with critical enterprise business processes will be found in data supplied by underlying infrastructure; indeed, the network can tell a story of how quickly and reliably customers are being served, operations are being run, or fraud or security threats are being repelled.
Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure provides a pre-validated, ready-to-deploy infrastructure, which reduces
the time and complexity involved in configuring and validating a traditional data center deployment. Cisco

The data center infrastructure is central to the overall IT architecture. It is where most business-critical applications are hosted and various types of services are provided to the business. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered.
Another important aspect of the data center design is the flexibility to quickly deploy and support new services. Designing a flexible architecture that can support new applications in a short time frame can result in a significant competitive advantage.
The basic data center network design is based on a proven layered approach that has been tested and improved over the past several years in some of the largest data center implementations in the world. The layered approach is the foundation of a data center design that seeks to improve scalability, performance, flexibility, resiliency, and maintenance.

Learn more about these trends and how Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software can help your staff improve productivity, improve awareness of potential issues, and enhance forecasting and decision making.
As demands on the data center increase, IT and facilities departments need to be able to increase and sustain high availability, maximize efficiency and minimize costs. Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) provides an integrated platform for monitoring and measuring consumption, capacity and performance of both IT and facilities resources in the data center.
CIOs are on a constant quest to understand what infrastructure will provide the best fit, at the lowest risk and cost. In today’s evolving data center, defining the proper use of data center assets, and how cloud-based platforms may or may not fit into the mix is critical to business success. With the abundance of cloud offerings in the market place, physical infrastructure is no longer an enterprise IT requirement. Cloud has established itself as an excellent option for infrastructure outsourcing.

NoSQL databases are now commonly used to provide a scalable system to store, retrieve and analyze large amounts of data. Most NoSQL databases are designed to automatically partition data and workloads across multiple servers to enable easier, more cost-effective expansion of data stores than the single server/scale up approach of traditional relational databases. Public cloud infrastructure should provide an effective host platform for NoSQL databases given its horizontal scalability, on-demand capacity, configuration flexibility and metered billing; however, the performance of virtualized public cloud services can suffer relative to bare-metal offerings in I/O intensive use cases. Benchmark tests comparing latency and throughput of operating a high-performance in-memory (flash-optimized), key value store NoSQL database on popular virtualized public cloud services and an automated bare-metal platform show performance advantages of bare-metal over virtualized public cloud, further quant

Ballooning data growth and ever-shrinking IT budgets have combined to push higher-density disk arrays to the forefront for almost any organization contemplating investment in new backup solutions. That’s not surprising; after all, the promise of more backup capacity and performance in less data center real estate sounds irresistible to anyone seeking greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness from their existing IT infrastructure.
