The Logic of Logic Layer

Moving to a Converged Data Center is Easier Than You Think

by Kurt Hildebrand | 02.17.17

The software-defined data center (SDDC) is increasingly considered to be the next step in the evolution of virtualization and cloud computing. It typically consists of three core components: network virtualization, server virtualization, and storage virtualization. But a business logic layer is also required to translate application requirements, SLAs, policies, and cost considerations into provisioning and management instructions.

Best Practices to Improve Cybersecurity

They May Be Simpler than You Think

by Stephen Nardone | 07.06.16

The threat environment—i.e. malware and zero-day attacks, drive-by downloads, watering hole attacks, and denial and distributed denial of service (DoS/DDoS) attacks—is worsening, and the news and analyses paint a dismal picture for cybersecurity: it’s not a case of if you’ll be attacked, but when. However, making your environment more secure—and if not eliminating, at least drastically reducing your risk—is achievable by implementing the appropriate policies, practices and technologies.

IT Networking Survey

Take the Pulse of Networking Trends

See What IT Decision Makers Are Saying

by Tim Allen | 04.05.16

Recently, we partnered with research firm IDG to ask your peers some probing questions about their networking goals and challenges. We received some great responses that really help illustrate today’s networking trends. For instance, over half of the respondents, 54%, chose security breaches as one of the top challenges they face, while 52% are also struggling to increase bandwidth requirements. Looking ahead, 58% plan to focus on reducing downtime, outages, and system failure. Security, reliability, and scalability seem to be at the forefront as organizations work to keep their networks up to date.

Software Defined Networking: Look Beyond the Hype

SDN has grown. Here’s why you should be paying attention.

by Tim Allen | 07.01.15

Less than a year ago, Gartner characterized the mainstream market action surrounding software-defined networking (SDN) as “mostly just tire-kicking.” That assessment of the market, however, is fast becoming old news. IDC has forecast  that the “worldwide SDN market for the enterprise and cloud service provider segments will grow from $960 million in 2014 to over $8 billion by 2018.”
