Virtualization was supposed to be the disruptive technology that saved IT. The cost savings from consolidation and the ease at which applications can be deployed promised to vastly improve delivery of IT services, free up IT staff to work on other projects, and not strain budgets.
Unfortunately, lack of insight into IT resource status in highly virtualized environments and the complexity of the interactions between server, storage, and network elements have added to IT staff manual workloads and led most companies to dedicate too much time to operations and not enough time to innovation. This basically negates the major benefits of virtualization.
This top ten list provides key guidelines for honing in on the differences between the solutions and helping to understand the basic options and limitations of each server virtualization technologies approach.

Moving to C++ presents opportunities for higher programmer productivity. The requirements of embedded systems, however, demand that the adoption of C++ be carefully measured for the performance impact of run-time costs present in C++, but not in C. This talk suggests strategies for developers who are starting their acquaintance with C++.
In today’s competitive embedded markets, manufacturers need to find ways to differentiate without adversely impacting development time and cost. This is particularly true in relation to embedded devices that are designed for use by consumers. As such products become more sophisticated, user interaction via traditional switches, dials, and basic displays becomes less desirable for a number of reasons.

This part of the CVD describes design considerations to implement a successful BYOD solution and different deployment models to address diverse business cases. Other parts of the CVD provide more details on how to implement unique use cases.
There are numerous ways to enable a BYOD solution based on the unique business requirements of a specific organization. While some organizations may take a more open approach and rely on basic authentication, other organizations will prefer more secure ways to identify, authenticate, and authorize devices. A robust network infrastructure with the capabilities to manage and enforce these policies is critical to a successful BYOD deployment.
This document discusses the hardware architecture of the new switch platforms in the Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches product family: in particular, the Cisco Nexus 9200 platform switches. The Cisco Nexus 9200 platform is a new extension of the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series. The platform uses a compact fixed-switch form factor and operates in the NX-OS mode, based on Cisco NX-OS Software. Built with next-generation Cisco application-specific circuits (ASICs), the Cisco Nexus 9200 platform brings high-performance and high-density 25, 50, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to data center networks, providing industry-leading performance, power efficiency, and capabilities in compact fixed-form-factor switches.
The data center infrastructure is central to the overall IT architecture. It is where most business-critical applications are hosted and various types of services are provided to the business. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered.
Another important aspect of the data center design is the flexibility to quickly deploy and support new services. Designing a flexible architecture that can support new applications in a short time frame can result in a significant competitive advantage.
The basic data center network design is based on a proven layered approach that has been tested and improved over the past several years in some of the largest data center implementations in the world. The layered approach is the foundation of a data center design that seeks to improve scalability, performance, flexibility, resiliency, and maintenance.
