White Paper Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Apr 15, 2016
Not long ago Gartner released an oft-quoted statistic: 95% of private clouds fail. According to Tom Bittman, VP Distinguished Analyst at Gartner, of 140 customers polled, 95% reported “something was wrong” with their private cloud. Identifying a shortcoming and labeling it a “failure” might be a bit of hyperbole, but it still leaves enterprises wondering if there is a place for private cloud in their strategy. This paper will attempt to answer this question, and will focus on the role of OpenStack in particular as a private cloud solution.

Today everything truly is connected to everything, and APIs are the connection mechanisms. Many companies are finding that their use of APIs has accelerated over the past 12 months, and that it will continue to accelerate during the next 12 months. APIs aren't really a new technology; they've actually been around for a long time. What is new is that they are in far broader usage today than they have been in the past. As of late 2015, the ProgrammableWeb API directory listed more than 14,000 APIs. When thinking about designing and managing APIs, a number of important questions arise. Why are APIs so well used and what effect would they have on your business? What is the impact of the expanding API economy on both providers and consumers? What are API tools and how can an investment in tools be an extremely cost efficient foundation for production grade API use cases?

Since it first emerged more than a decade ago, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) has been both widely praised as a modern, agile approach to software development and infrastructure architecture as well as dismissed as a colossal waste of time and money. Missed expectations for many SOA projects led one analyst in 2009 to declare, “SOA is dead.” Far from being dead, however, service oriented architecture is in fact more relevant than ever.

Cisco made Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) generally available on November 3rd, 2015. It is an SDN controller that supports apps that make WAN and access networks easier to deploy and manage. Cisco’s focus on a low-risk, incremental approach to adopting SDN will appeal to its user-base. Cisco needs to describe the policy control capabilities benefits of APIC-EM, and also highlight its power as a platform and its ability to distinguish apps from point solution offerings from many other companies with competitive features.

The role of the CIO has changed more in the past five years than any other position in the corporate world. IT leaders are now partners with business leaders, and they are tasked with helping companies respond to competitive pressures as quickly as possible. In an effort to improve overall IT agility, compute and application technology has evolved significantly through the use of mobility, virtualization and cloud computing. However, the network itself has yet to evolve, limiting the overall agility of IT today. These technology shifts have transformed almost every part of the enterprise. However, to maximize the potential of these investments, the network must also transform. Read more to learn how.

White Paper Published By: CDW - APC     Published Date: Apr 07, 2016
Open Compute has had a significant impact on the thinking about data center design. Until now, the focus has been on systems at the rack level, leaving unanswered questions about the power infrastructure upstream of the rack. In this paper, we address critical questions about the implications of Open Compute on the upstream power infrastructure, including redundancy, availability, and flexibility. We introduce simplified reference designs that support OCP and provide a capital cost analysis to compare traditional and OCP-based designs. We also present an online TradeOff Tool that allows data center decision makers to better understand the cost differences and cost drivers to various architectures.

Poor rack cable management has proven to many data center operators to be a source of downtime and frustration during moves, adds and changes. It can also lead to data transmission errors, safety hazards, poor cooling efficiency, and a negative overall look and feel of the data center. This paper discuses the benefits of effective rack cable management, provides guidance for cable management within IT racks including high density and networking IT racks, which will improve cable traceability and troubleshooting time while reducing the risk of human error.

Prefabricated modular data centers offer many advantages over traditionally built data centers, including flexibility, improved predictability, and faster speed of deployment. Cost , however, is sometimes stated as a barrier to deploying these designs. In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come at a capex premium . The analysis was completed and validated with Romonet’s Cloud-based Analytics Platform, a vendor-neutral industry resource.

White Paper Published By: CDW - NetApp     Published Date: Apr 07, 2016
A critical step in moving from a shared virtualized environment toward a private cloud is the transition from infrastructure optimization to service optimization. NetApp’s design approach, technologies, and ecosystem integration build upon our storage efficiencies to deliver service-level efficiencies using centralized, policy-based management and automation. With NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, an efficient service-oriented approach can be implemented that enables storage provisioning, data protection, and operational processes to be integrated and automated. As a result, enterprises can meet workload service-level requirements while greatly reducing management costs and improving business agility.
