  • Dealing with key trends during an IT disaster recovery

    Cloud services, virtualisation, BYOD and social CRM are key factors influencing disaster recovery. Because earthquakes, hurricanes, snow storms or other events can put data centers and other corporate facilities out of commission for a while, it's vital that companies have in place a comprehensive disaster recovery plan.

    Expensive and specialised Fibre Channel SANs have been under assault as companies consolidate data traffic over Ethernet. With Fibre Channel disks already largely eliminated from the market by SAS, can networking gear be far behind?

  • Microsoft System Center 2012 switch simplifies virtual systems management duties

    Switching from VMware to Microsoft's Hyper-V virtualisation environment is saving money for two businesses that are also using Microsoft's System Center 2012 to manage and monitor applications and the infrastructure that supports them.

    To update an old IT saying about IBM and job security, few IT managers may get fired for choosing VMware to virtualise their infrastructure. VMware, after all, is the safe bet: the company currently enjoys 80% of the server-side virtualisation market, according to IDC.

  • Cisco reaches a financial milestone

    Cisco achieved a milestone in its most recent fiscal quarter, one with profound implications for the future of the company: Cisco made more money from its new products and services than it did from routers and switches.

  • How Fibre Channel over Ethernet went from fee to free

    With demand for FCoE more sluggish than vendors had hoped, 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch and adapter makers are making it available for free.
