Live migration is essential for a dynamic data center environment. But until now, it's been impossible between different generations of processors. Intel IT and End User Platform Integration have done so successfully with Intel® Virtualization Technology FlexMigration. This white paper explains how.
On-Demand Managed Hosting ranges from simple Managed Servers with one or two processors to the design of complex computing environments, which typically include multiple servers, storage, networking, security, backup, load balancing, and more.
Whether you’re serving customers, partners, or internal users through two data centers or twenty, you want all users to have the best experience. Global load balancing (GLB) is the effective management and balancing of the Internet traffic to and from your data centers and cloud service providers and has become critical to growing enterprise ecommerce revenue, serving customers and empowering employee productivity.
Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications.
Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling applications to be re-architected into autonomous microservices
from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.
A five-year-long quest for software-defined application delivery and services came to a fruitful end for this $4 billion enterprise when they chose Avi Networks and Cisco ACI as part of their move to a next generation data center architecture. Avi Networks represented the perfect complement to the network automation benefits delivered by Cisco ACI at the company.
This buyer’s guide for load balancers is based on research, best practices, and conversations with network administrators and IT operations teams at over 110 Global 2000 enterprises. It presents guidelines for choosing application services that mirror the needs of modern data centers and public cloud initiatives.
The guide is organized in sections, starting with a pre-assessment of your current application delivery capabilities. With data gathered from your pre-assessment, you can review the considerations involved in creating a software-defined application services strategy; identify opportunities to improve automation of application services and operations. Finally, use the software-defined application services checklist at the end of the guide to identify key priorities in your choice of application service solutions for your enterprise.
Downtime happens and often at the worst time possible. Organizations experiencing downtime face direct and indirect costs from the loss of critical systems. This whitepaper discusses a Globalscape survey of 283 IT professionals and end users revealing the frequency of unplanned downtime, the effects on organizations, including average costs, and what IT administrators can do to minimize core system failure.
Load balancers are officially dead; refocus on application delivery. Read this report and you’ll learn about enterprises that are still focused on load balancing, improving application performance and security, increasing efficiency and more.
Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.

Elastic Load Balancing automatically distributes incoming web tra?c across multiple EC2 instances. With Elastic Load Balancing, you can add and remove EC2 instances as your needs change without disrupting the overall ?ow of information. If an EC2 instance fails, Elastic Load Balancing automatically reroutes the tra?c to the remaining running EC2 instances. If a failed EC2 instance is restored, Elastic Load Balancing restores the tra?c to that instance.
