Nutanix, said to be the first company to offer a radically simple compute and storage building block for virtualising data centres without the need for shared storage, has announced it has achieved record growth across US federal agencies for its Complete Cluster SAN-free data centre.
Much has already been written about the pressures driving the enterprise to migrate to IPv6, but what about the positive performance benefits it could bring? asks Alan Way, International Development Manager, Spirent Communications.
The Spirent TestCenter Virtual software module provides visibility into the virtualisation infrastructure and is suitable for users who are unsure about the performance of a new virtual system and/or would like assurance before deploying critical applications.
Hewlett-Packard (HP) specialises in developing and manufacturing computing, data storage and networking hardware, designing software and delivering services. According to Brian Gregory, the HP Networking Account Manager for Qld and NT Universities, the ANZ University community, led by CAUDIT, wished to carry out a proof of concept that would confirm the suitability of HP networking equipment to be used within a university campus LAN environment. The tests to be carried out were determined by a collective of IT engineers across a number of universities with multiple protocols, as well as performance, due to capacity expansion upwards of 10 GB.
Available to rent, the Fluke Optiview Pro Gigabit Series III LAN analyser gives users a clear view of the entire enterprise - providing visibility into every piece of hardware, every application and every connection on the network.
Spirent TestCenter Virtual software module can be used to validate network architecture. The software module that resides on the virtual machine provides good visibility into the entire data centre infrastructure. It extends and complements the capabilities of Spirent TestCenter to accurately benchmark and optimise performance of virtual server switches and cloud-based virtualisation.
