Network Performance

Network Performance refers to the level of quality of service of a telecommunications product as seen by the customer. It should not be seen merely as an attempt to get "more through" the network. Performance can also be modelled instead of measured; one example of this is using state transition diagrams to model queuing performance in a circuit-switched network.

White Paper Published By: Alacritech     Published Date: Aug 21, 2009
Today's systems and servers need an efficient way to move the ever-increasing amounts of data over networks. Many companies have introduced solutions such as TCP/IP Offload Engines (TOE) Network Interface Cards (TNICs), Network Interface Cards (NICs), and iSCSI Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) to solve efficiency and throughout challenges. However, the functionality of these solutions is quite varied, and in some cases, rapidly becoming obsolete.

While marketers usually look first to customer facing applications when making technology acquisitions, taking into account the entire marketing value chain--from strategic brief to a personalized communication--is the best way to look at achieving marketing ROI. Too often, investments in customer facing technology fail to account for operational burdens created upstream in the marketing process.

White Paper Published By: Network Automation     Published Date: Oct 23, 2008
In good economic times, success simply means keeping pace. After all, the market is demanding your company’s products and services, and your responsibility is simple: keep up with the demand no matter what it takes. Most managers, whether they are business managers or technology managers respond to this situation the same way. They hire more people to shoulder the increased load. Sales managers seek out more sales reps. Foremen bring more assembly workers online. Customer service beefs up the call center. And IT managers hire more administrators to maintain the constant flux of demands from users, applications, systems, and networks.

Case Study Published By: KEMP Technologies     Published Date: Aug 04, 2008
Websites have become critical components of most businesses’ core operations. They support the brand and ordering process, serve as data information resources and assist in overall customer care. Having poor website performance or poor reliability can destroy or severely damage a business and its reputation. The increasing importance of these websites leads to critical requirements of security, reliability and scalability. Delivering these, however, can leave an SMB stretched beyond its resources.

When evaluating the pros and cons of DSL and cable modem Internet access, enterprises should factor speed, cost, installation, consistency and security into the decision-making process. While the right access choice is a function of location, availability and service offerings, DSL is often the better option for remote workers, satellite offices and traveling employees.

IT Managers are not in the business of luck. They need to prepare for every disaster scenario, every contingency and ensure that even when every object, job and process is running 100% perfectly on the system, some other unforeseen network element doesn't swoop in and ruin all their efforts, just because it resides outside the parameters of the System i. After all, in a situation like this, people remember the one thing that went wrong – not the millions of things that went right – it's unfortunate, but that's life.

Many IT Managers will be familiar with the ‘disk or die’ ultimatums that a disgruntled system can issue. If the system demands feeding and threatens to shut down if it doesn’t get more disk to chew, it’s time to address the issue of disk once and for all.  The expense of using disk to accommodate problems in the hope of buying extra investigation time is a quick fix that few organizations can sustain.

White Paper Published By: Jumpnode Systems     Published Date: Jun 12, 2007
Network monitoring software packages require complex installation, ongoing maintenance and additional costs for servers and third-party applications. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) network monitoring alternatives greatly simplify implementation and maintenance, but they rely on uninterrupted Internet access to function, often require complex VPNs or firewall modifications, and typically provide limited access to historical data.
