Local Area Networking White Papers

A Local Area Network (LAN) is a computer network covering a local area, like a home, office, or group of buildings. Current LANs are most likely to be based on switched IEEE 802.3 Ethernet running at 10, 100 or 1,000 Mbit/s or on Wi-Fi technology . The defining characteristics of LANs in contrast to WANs are: their much higher data rates; smaller geographic range; and that they do not require leased telecommunication lines.

To enable always-on application access and business connectivity, you need a rock-solid network foundation. The increasingly complex, dynamic and fluid relationship between networks and devices requires a new approach to IP Address Management (IPAM) – one that unifies mobile security, address management, automation and self-service to provide actionable network intelligence and a broad span of control. This paper discusses the critical role of IPAM in providing a smarter way to connect mobile devices, applications, virtual environments and clouds.

When rack-mounted servers first appeared on the scene in the 1990s, they offered considerable advantages over the behemoth boxes they replaced. Their small, standardized footprint went a long way toward making data centers easier to manage. In the ensuing decades, form factor size and compute power have had an inverse relationship. Their universal standardization earned them the nickname “pizza box” servers, and it was a key driver of the scale-out computing model popular in the early 2000s. Populating a rack of eight servers and either clustering them or implementing failover from one to the other was far easier than previously possible.

Today's IT organizations are faced with the daunting task of optimizing all aspects of their departments, including people, processes and technology. Optimizing and streamlining server utilization through virtualization represents one particularly exciting example. We found that one of the most popular usage models for virtualization is to drive down server procurements in development, test and production environments. When this model is followed, future server purchases are avoided; instead, new workloads are established on existing systems.
