Data keeps growing with no signs of stopping. An effective storage solution seamlessly scales to meet an organization's growing appetite for capacity, while ensuring availability and fast access. SAN storage should be designed to deliver strong top-end performance so throughput does not degrade as storage needs scale higher.
Capability breeds dependence. The more you can do, the more is asked of you. The more time you save, the more time you spend seeking out ways to save more time or money. If less really is more, how do you do more with less? Effective system monitoring could help you break free of the system shackles and use your System i (iSeries) network to save time and money.
Many IT Managers will be familiar with the ‘disk or die’ ultimatums that a disgruntled system can issue. If the system demands feeding and threatens to shut down if it doesn’t get more disk to chew, it’s time to address the issue of disk once and for all. The expense of using disk to accommodate problems in the hope of buying extra investigation time is a quick fix that few organizations can sustain.
Imagine you had a friend that turned up right before something bad was going to happen and told you how to avoid it. Like if you don't attend to that looping job silently going about its business, the system in India will fall over and the downtime will cost the company hundreds of thousands of dollars in idle work hours. Yes, a friendly forewarning wouldn't be bad. We would suggest employing a job monitor – it's your friend on the inside.
Class of Service (CoS) functionality can help optimize network performance. For a successful deployment, network designers should identify all applications, understand requirements associated with each application, designate appropriate mapping for groups of applications and provide mechanisms in the underlying network to deliver CoS. CoS mapping and deployment are important; adhering to tested strategies and avoiding common misconceptions helps IT managers advance optimization across the wide area network.
The term “network management” encompasses a broad range of solutions from single point products to element managers to large enterprise-class solutions. For the purpose of this ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES® (EMA™) report, the term Enterprise Network Management Systems (ENMS) includes network-centric management solutions that are used by large organizations’ operations and engineering teams to discover, monitor, assess, troubleshoot, and generally maintain highly distributed enterprise networks.
For this EMA™ Radar, the focus was put specifically on core capabilities and features primarily associated with network operations’ need to ensure health and availability of the network. Supporting functional capabilities such as performance monitoring, configuration management, asset management, as well as integrated management of connected non-network devices were also considered, but as non-critical (albeit helpful/valuable) extensions.
