Many companies that need to deliver content online at scale use Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to improve performance. However,
even with a reliable CDN, there can be issues with service quality in different regions, insufficient capacity during peak periods, and lack of
resiliency and diversification. To address these concerns, some companies distribute their delivery load across more than one CDN, a concept
often called a multi-CDN implementation. In this paper, we’ll explore frequently-asked questions and best practices for implementing
multi-CDN workflows based on extensive experience.
Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.

Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.

The enhanced performance that results from the DevOps approach has been proven to have a big impact on the overall performance of the business, with faster, more reliable software delivery, consequent cost savings, and faster time to value. Now that cloud is an integral element of the enterprise, automation of cloud management is key, and feeds into the DevOps approach. VMware offers your IT organization the opportunity to become DevOps-ready, using the GUI and API-led approach to enable an automated self-service infrastructure.
While the promises of reduced costs and greater flexibility are driving companies to the cloud, these benefits can be negated by new management and processes which are often manual and disconnected from existing systems.

ffective communications are the foundation for any good team, and the transportation
and logistics (T&L) sector is no exception. Charged with managing the warehousing,
inventory, and movement of freight across the supply chain — both through
internal and external distribution networks — T&L professionals rely on high levels of team
collaboration to get the job done right.
By helping companies leverage the knowledge, talents, and insights of their people, effective
team communications ensures that customers get their deliveries when, how, and where
they want them. Meeting those expectations in today’s fast-paced, demanding distribution
environment requires reliable, clear voice and data logistics communications that start at the
warehouse and end at the point of delivery.
In this white paper, we explore the key challenges that T&L companies are facing in today’s
business environment and hear how instant push-to-talk and advanced video surveillance can
help them develop streamlined suppl
Research from leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has evidenced strong and growing interest in cloud deployment models. While public cloud has gotten the earliest attention, stronger adoption is happening within private and hybrid models. In the EMA April 2014 report “Managing Networks in the Age of Cloud, SDN, and Big Data Network Management Megatrends 2014,” over 50% of respondents reported public/hybrid cloud initiatives were driving network management priorities. Since 2012, cloud projects have moved from early adopter status to mainstream business initiatives, and their impact on network management grew from 36% in 2012 to over 50% in 2014.
