The data center is getting bigger and more complex and so too is the asset inventory. Every new asset has an impact on the day–to–day operations of the data center – from power consumption and problem resolution to capacity planning and change management.
To help organizations plan their DCIM roadmap, this paper explores five essential DCIM use cases and outcomes. From better asset utilization and faster provisioning to maintaining availability, greater efficiency and smarter capacity planning, we look at how DCIM can close the operational and optimization gap for both IT and facilities.
Walk past your data center, and you might hear a soft, plaintive call: “Feed me, feed me…” It is not your engineers
demanding more pizza. It is your servers and applications. And the call is growing louder.
Mobile and virtualized workloads, cloud applications, big data, heterogeneous devices: they are all growing in your
business, demanding previously unimagined capacity and performance from your servers and data center fabric.
And that demand is not slacking. Your employees, applications, and competitive advantage increasingly depend on
it. Those servers and applications need to be fed. And if you have not started planning for 40 gigabits per second
(Gbps) to the server rack, you will need to soon.

The ability to observe, diagnose, and subsequently improve the performance of business-critical applications is essential to ensuring a positive user experience and maintaining the highest levels of employee productivity and customer satisfaction. The challenge of establishing an effective application visibility and control function is only growing, as trends such as mobility, virtualization, and cloud computing fundamentally alter datacenter and application architectures.
With NetScaler Insight Center enterprises get:
• Unparalleled application visibility and invaluable operational intelligence;
• Increased operational efficiency, as troubleshooting and capacity planning efforts are greatly simplified;
• An optimized user experience that drives greater employee productivity and customer satisfaction;
• Increased assurance that governing SLAs will always be met; and,
• Reduced total cost of ownership, based on having a low-cost, low-impact solution—particularly compared to traditional

As you think about migrating to the public cloud, it’s challenging to know where to start. This guide discusses 10 key considerations to address as you think about moving to the cloud and serves as a framework to help you understand which critical decisions you need to make.
Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”

This paper explores issues that arise when planning for growth of Information Technology infrastructure and explains how colocation of data centers can provide scalability, enabling users to modify capacity quickly to meet fluctuating demand.
Enterprises that adopt a proactive approach to IT resource capacity planning, using the most advanced methods and tools available, are ensuring that their IT environments are right-sized to enable corporate growth and improve company performance.
The term virtualization refers to the creation of virtual machines, virtual networks, and virtual disks (logical images of physical resources) that can execute work and then be returned to a shared resource pool. Cloud computing makes use of virtualization but cloud computing also focuses on allowing computing to be delivered as a service.
The explosion in IT demand has intensified pressure on data center resources, making it difficult to respond to business needs, especially while budgets remain flat. As capacity demands become increasingly unpredictable, calculating the future needs of the data center becomes ever more difficult. The challenge is to build a data center that will be functional, highly efficient and cost-effective to operate over its 10-to-20-year lifespan. Facilities that succeed are focusing on optimization, flexibility and planning—infusing agility through a modular data center design.
This whitepaper outlines issues that arise when planning for growth of IT infrastructure and explains how the colocation of data centers can provide scalability, enabling users to modify capacity quickly to meet fluctuating demand.
This white paper explores the challenges of increasing computing power in resource-constrained physical spaces and data centers experiencing high growth. We also explore how intelligent rack PDUs can meet these challenges and address critical uptime and capacity planning issues.
