Enterprise: Data Center
Where ROI Converges…
What level of storage and network I/O performance are we getting?
Is each virtual application protected from others running on the same host?
Is data secure in the private and public cloud?
Today’s users expect immediate access to a wide range of media-rich applications and services, instantly and from any location. To deliver it all without fail, modern data centers are being architected or overhauled to support cloud computing, software as a service (SaaS), videoconferencing, social networking, and much more. Companies are consolidating facilities, integrating storage and computing networks, and virtualizing systems across the data centers.
But increased operational efficiency may come at a price as convergence and virtualization increase infrastructure complexity and add new risks and vulnerabilities. With deficiencies in any area placing time-to-market, ROI and QoE at risk, data center architects must fully evaluate every decision by:
- Simulating and assessing intended facilities
- Benchmarking end-to-end application delivery
- Verifying security and compliance
- Isolating and troubleshooting problems
