You can have all the latest features of iOS 8 on your iPhone, but if you’re still using an iPhone 4s, you won’t be able to take advantage of most of them. This should serve as an appropriate metaphor for this audience because when it comes to data storage, many of today’s storage solutions have been around since the 1970s…as in the the world of mobile, today’s data storage needs are revealing just how limited those older solutions are. Even if a company has updated almost everything in its IT ecosystem, it takes only one unchanged layer to prevent them from realizing the benefits of the latest technology. With petabyte scale, reliability, performance, and efficiency the order of the day we are fast approaching that point with storage. There is without question a need to change in the current storage paradigm. In this webinar you will learn about current IT storage challenges and useful insights about next-generation storage solutions.

Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.
