Download this white paper to learn how to build a private cloud that seamlessly integrates with external clouds without compromising systems and applications, performance insight and cross-cloud interoperability.
An IDC executive report examines the future of cloud computing, focusing on design goals that support portability of applications and data, which will certainly avoid expensive and time-consuming fixes.
Industry standards have been established to ensure performance, consistency, and interoperability between network equipment vendors. However,
the consistent implementation and operation of these standards become even more critical as speeds and bandwidth increase.
At the fiber infrastructure level, this also means more testing may be needed beyond the basic fiber end-face inspection certification and Tier 1
This white paper explores Tier 2 optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) testing and examines its relationship to Tier 1 testing and how
inspection plays into both. This paper defines Tier 2 testing and explains when it is needed. It also addresses the OTDR complexity argument.

Recognize these six misconceptions that can harm your success.
Don’t be “fuzzy” about interoperability and sharing data. Misinformation abounds. Get the straight scoop and the right start to your interoperability plan. Robust interoperability is critical to sustain and grow your organization. It’s the top priority of the Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology (ONC). It should be a high priority for you too.
The constant growth of cloud, IoT, virtualization, mobility, and digital transformation has brought tectonic changes to the world of networking. Long viewed as a bastion of single-purpose, inflexible, and closed solutions, networks have started to transform in line with the demands for flexibility, scalability, ease of management, interoperability, and application support. Networking departments need to achieve all of the tasks above while keeping costs under control. Additionally, security requirements for the new network are not letting up — quite the opposite, as the virtualized network (and general IT) environment requires rethinking, virtualization, and evolution of security architectures.

Before spending considerable time and resources to perform your POC, download this in-depth, 24-page report.
F5 has worked with Microsoft during the beta cycle and beyond to ensure a high level of interoperability and optimization with the entire Windows Server 2008 platform. F5’s Application Ready Network for Windows Server 2008 not only helps optimize end-to-end performance, availability, and scalability for Windows Server 2008 deployments, but reduces the costs associated with deployment, management, and operation.
F5 Application Delivery Networking Solutions are the networking foundation for this market leading CRM and Analytics application. Oracle and F5 have validated and jointly documented the interoperability of F5’s BIG-IP LTM and WebAccelerator (the BIG-IP module and standalone appliance) solutions with Siebel working in hundreds of customers worldwide.
Given the evolution of past major advances in wireless-LAN technologies, it should come as no surprise that products based on the still-in-development IEEE 802.11ac standard are now appearing across the board, from residence to enterprise. Just as was the case with 802.11g and 802.11n, the standards-development process is now far enough along that the semiconductor community is shipping in volume, the Wi-Fi Alliance has been able to issue an initial interoperability specification, and system-vendor products offering up to 1.3 Gbps are now available at prices very close to those of 802.11n APs but with on the order of a 30% improvement in price/performance on a spectral-efficiency basis and from 100% to more than 200% in performance overall.

Companies spend millions of dollars every year on building data warehouses, buying business intelligence (BI) software tools and managing their analytic processes in the hope of gaining consumer insight and winning market share. Yet, many companies fail to realize the full benefits of their technology investments because they are hamstrung by the layers of expertise and the complexity of technology tools needed to integrate various data warehouses and associated tools within their existing analytic environments. Since analysis is only as good as the accessibility, timeliness and accuracy of the information being analyzed, the interoperability of any data warehouse with any analytic environment is essential to achieving insightful, actionable analysis and making better decisions.
As organizations prioritize digital transformation initiatives, many are finding that legacy
networks are holding them back. To support new business models, cloud adoption, and an
explosion in connected devices, modern networks must support interoperability across data
centers, multiple clouds, branch locations, and edge devices. Applications now run at every
point on this spectrum, and they are critical to businesses’ ability to win in hypercompetitive
marketplaces. Yet, even as business success has become more dependent on
this new architecture, and the amount of data flowing across connections has increased,
many organizations still lack a unified approach to management, automation, and security.
Overlooking how an application fits into your overall IT landscape can lead to costly implementations. But addressing data management with middleware solutions that work seamlessly with existing applications in your company's IT environment can lead to significant benefits. Explore the value of technology decisions that support and maintain infrastructure-wide interoperability with regard to your data management solutions.

The introduction of innovative new form factors, software infrastructure and cloud services is reshaping enterprise video collaboration. The following vendors offer potential for greater reach, scale and interoperability while addressing the most critical video use cases.
Just “keeping the lights on” in the server room is highly complex and largely inefficient. Maintaining IT infrastructure, system interdependencies, and application interoperability tie up valuable personnel and resources. The old way of simply throwing more hardware capacity at a problem can only serve to increase the complexity and further dampen productivity.
In a perfect world, the infrastructure—hardware and software—would have been built as an integrated but scalable unit from the ground up. In our world, though, the best new systems combine independent pieces of IT infrastructure to form simplified computing platforms, freeing up IT to focus on business innovation rather than infrastructure management.
Welcome to the new world of IT.
