Enterprise Level Device Availability Report in DX Infrastructure Manager 9.1

| June 11, 2019

The job of a system administrator is to make sure the data center is always available for serving the business services IT supports. If device availability is the key KPI that the IT operator, system administrator or cloud administrator is tracking, there is a crucial need for a device availability report that tracks physical, virtual or cloud devices at the enterprise level. The device availability report is composed of two parts. The first part indicates whether the device is powered up or not, i.e. system uptime. The second is device reachability, which determines whether the device is connected to the network and is reachable from endpoints. Many times, IT administrators only focus on reachability, or in other words, connectivity. If the device is not reachable, they tend to mark the device as unavailable. This method is incorrect for cases where the user is not supposed to or allowed to connect to certain devices in the data center. In these cases, if the device is powered up, it should be marked as available, where reachability is secondary.

How to backup hyperconverged infrastructure

Article | May 4, 2020

Enterprises running hypervisors on hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) systems typically have backup options available to them that are not available to those running on generic hardware. Such customers may also have additional backup challenges depending on the HCI vendor and hypervisor they have chosen. Let’s take a look.

Lenovo Looks to Automate Edge Computing

Article | March 3, 2020

Charles Ferland, vice president and general manager for networking and communications service providers at Lenovo Data Center Group, said the Lenovo Open Cloud Automation (LOC-A) framework provides a single pane of glass through which IT teams can not only provision IT infrastructure but also invoke other frameworks to automate, for example, the deployment of virtual machines on top of that IT infrastructure. Ferland said while there are plenty of frameworks for automating the deployment of virtual machines, many IT teams will spend weeks manually provisioning IT infrastructure. LOC-A provides a mechanism to reduce the time and effort required to minutes. However,

What Makes Digital Transformation a Success?

Article | February 18, 2020

Despite more than $5 trillion having been spent on digital transformation efforts, survey after survey shows that successful digital transformations are far and few in-between. By many estimates, more than 50% of digital transformation efforts failed in recent years. While a recent survey conducted by Hanover Research and commissioned by AHEAD, the State of Enterprise Digital Transformation, found that 93% of enterprises are undergoing some digital transformation as they seek to cut costs (77%) and improve customer experience (71%). The survey found 42% of enterprises struggling to reach success as their efforts fall behind or stall.

WIRELESS DATA CENTERS AND CLOUD COMPUTING

Article | April 13, 2020

One of the most exciting areas of Vubiq Network’s innovative millimeter wave technology is in the application of ultra high-speed, short-range communications as applied to solving the scaling constraints and costs for internal data center connectivity and switching. Today’s limits of cabled and centralized switching architectures are eliminated by leveraging the wide bandwidths of the millimeter wave spectrum for the high-density communications requirements inside the modern data center. Our patented technology has the ability to provide more than one terabit per second of wireless uplink capacity from a single server rack through an innovative approach to create a millimeter wave massive mesh network. The elimination of all inter-rack cabling – as well as the elimination of all aggregation and core switches – is combined with higher throughput, lower latency, lower power, higher reliability, and lower cost by using millimeter wave wireless connectivity.
