Networking isn’t about applications or technology — it’s about users. The business pressure to
consolidate IT, support empowered users, and provide customised experiences to customers is
stressing today’s architectures and reshaping networks. The old approach of building networks around
applications is too static. Read more.
A key priority for Ryerson is to provide consistent access to network applications, which range
from a public-facing web site to critical applications such as student registration and learning
management. With students, faculty, and staff all vying for the same resources on the network
(including as many as 5000 wireless users at any given time), Ryerson needed a way to provide a
predictable user experience. Read more.

Companies that do not rise to the challenge of ensuring performance over complex networks find it increasingly difficult to compete in a virtualised, cloud based world. Organisations improve performance using several different technologies, which increases the complexity of performance management initiatives. The emerging nature of application deployment and consumption in today's business adds to this complexity. Now it is common for applications to be delivered via cloud based systems, both internal and public, and increasingly these applications are consumed on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Besides form factor, virtual systems are not really that different than physical systems. They both use
the same operating systems and applications. They both present users with computing resources
such as RAM and hard drives. Consequently, the ability to exploit vulnerabilities in a physical
environment will present a significant threat to virtualised environments as well. This paper examines the different endpoint security methods for virtualised environments and presents how Endpoint Protection security provides optimal performance, protection and manageability.

IT teams are looking for robust, enterprise-grade virtualization platforms can now choose from VMware, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation, Microsoft Hyper-V and others. Consequently, more organisations are looking to run multiple virtualisation platforms. While monitoring and managing performance in virtualised environments has traditionally presented a range of challenges to IT administrators, those challenges are exacerbated in environments running multiple virtualisation platforms. This paper looks at how heterogeneous virtualisation environments are growing more common in today’s organisations, and it offers a set of best practices administrators can use to efficiently and effectively manage performance in these environments.
IT departments have increasingly adopted virtualisation as a way to increase agility and make businesses more competitive while maximising operational efficiencies. Following the success with server virtualisation, many organisations are now turning to desktop virtualisation to more easily manage and secure the use of desktop PCs, notebooks, tablets, and other mobile devices throughout the enterprise. This Technology Spotlight discusses the drivers, benefits, and challenges of creating virtual desktop environments.
