This paper will discuss strategies for controlling a broad range of recreational Internet traffic such
as instant messaging, P2P file downloads and social networking activities that can significantly
slow business applications and impact employee productivity. By implementing a solution to
effectively detect, classify and control recreational traffic, including encrypted P2P traffic designed
to slip past corporate firewalls, organisations can improve employee productivity, accelerate
application response times, reclaim bandwidth for business-critical applications and defer costly
bandwidth upgrades. Read this whitepaper.
From 2009 through early 2011 MLB Network connected to the outside world through dual
45-megabit DS3 circuits, but with as many as 1000 users during the baseball season transferring
everything from video files to player statistics, the network had reached saturation. “We were
seeing 98% utilisation on our routers then, and wanted to ensure we were prepared for the MLB
First-Year Player Draft in June,” said MLB Network IT director Cindy Cortell. Read more.
Video communication in business
– often perceived to be expensive,
difficult to use and bandwidth
hungry – was traditionally the
preserve of the board room.
But with HD video services now
becoming much more widely
available, organisations need to
consider if they have the right
strategy in place to achieve
Data deduplication is dramatically improving IT economics by minimizing storage footprint requirements, backup windows, and network bandwidth consumption in
distributed enterprises and datacenter locations alike. In real-world environments, deduplication is accelerating backup and recovery efficiency and driving down IT costs. This white paper looks at the various approaches to deduplication for backup data and outlines the considerations in selecting a solution. It also highlights EMC's portfolio of deduplication offerings for backup and recovery and explores specific use cases for optimal backup efficiency and cost reduction.
This paper takes a look at the main forces that are driving Ethernet bandwidth
upwards. It looks at the standards and architectural practices adopted by the different segments, how the different speeds of Ethernet are used and how its popularity has resulted in a complex ecosystem between carrier networks, enterprise networks, and consumers.
