Despite all the excitement about clouds, only a handful has yet been built, mostly because infrastructure is such a challenge. Before cloud-type systems can bloom, businesses need ready access to the kind of infrastructure Google had to cobble together itself: high scale, low-cost and mass customized. Read this online article to learn how these extreme scale-out infrastructures will not only seed clouds, but nourish Web 2.0 and high-performance systems while inspiring business models we can't yet imagine.

BIG-IP devices have long been a tool for applying "rolling upgrades" to the applications and systems that sit behind the BIG-IP device. With Live Install, this "stage->reboot->go live" sequence can now be applied to the BIG-IP device directly, creating a rolling upgrade scenario like those of the application systems behind it. Live Install also enables snapshot versioning for future versions of the BIG-IP system, a critical feature for both production and testing environments.

When Alcatel bought out Lucent at the end of 2006, the two companies had already begun planning data center consolidations of their own, but the merger changed all that. As it turns out, the merged company created a plan to consolidate 25 data centers and 125 server rooms down to six data centers and just a few server rooms. This change has presented challenges, especially in terms of arranging downtime and dealing with employees' attachment to their servers and applications, but the company is on pace to meet it’s goal of reducing IT operational cost by 25% over three years.
