Unlike perimeter-based security, virtualized network security allows for segmenting the data center, firewalling off various sensitive areas without the need for external hardware.
While the benefits of data integration and consolidation can be clear, the process is not easy to implement.
By evaluating risk, designing for optimal functionality and maintaining for continuity, federal data center managers can ensure the continued success of their facility.
The Indiana Office of Technology is building the first state-level all-flash data center in the United States.
Aligned Data Centers’ pay-for-use pricing model helps cut power waste and colocation costs.
Storage efficiency technologies help IT managers maximize their current infrastructure and deliver higher utilization and performance.
While most of the challenges involve management practices and information flows, technical solutions can help.
The Xtreme Computing Platform includes a Nutanix developed open source hypervisor and one-click infrastructure management.
A 25 GbE networking solution lets network administrators upgrade from 10 GbE with largely the same infrastructure for cabling.
Avondale, Ariz., turned to VMware’s NSX 6.1 to help secure traffic moving between virtual machines.
The consolidation will replace 60 racks of legacy equipment with 10 racks of Nutanix’s hardware/software appliances.
Data centers must standardize their systems and have accurate documentation to maximize efficiencies.
Agencies get a faster, more efficient network, while federal IT professionals get more time, fewer headaches and assurance that their network is secure, up to standards and operating 24/7.
Argonne National Labs’ Globus offers cloud-based service that manages bandwidth and improves reliability in transferring very large datasets.
