An Enterprise Cloud-oriented datacenter is a top-down, demand driven datacenter design that maximizes efficiency and minimizes traditional IT waste of power, cooling, space, and capacity under-utilization while providing enhanced levels of service and control. The following design principles are proven to enable firms to create an enterprise cloud-oriented datacenter. #1: Dynamic provisioning A package-once, deploy-many application facility that incorporates application, infrastructure, and IP dependencies into a simple policy library is critical. This affords the capability to deploy in minutes versus days. #2: Dynamic execution management Dynamic execution management performs allocation that is managed in real time based on monitored workloads compared against service contracts adjusting allocation of applications, infrastructure services, and infrastructure resour...

Enterprise Cloud Unified Footprint – Network Ensemble(s)

A complex system such as an enterprise network is subjected to many kinds of stresses from a large variety of business applications that have different demand profiles. Dig deeper into any large network and you will see that one solution doesn't solve all problems. Pockets of point solutions are installed to solve problems as they arise; this is rarely efficient in a large network. The big question for IT is whether it is possible to be forward thinking when deploying these solutions through the use of network ensembles which are essential for migrating the enterprise networked f...
