Building Network Visibility From 10G to 100G

When it comes to networks, higher speeds and greater throughput are better. It’s no surprise that many organizations – especially those in performance-oriented industries such as finance, healthcare, Big Tech, etc. – are well into the process of upgrading equipment. Read more…

Why Unified Observability Matters for High Performance FinServ Networks

Financial Services companies rely on their networks to provide market data to their customers without gaps and facilitate financial trades at high speeds. These networks require extremely low latency – far lower than most enterprises – and must be kept secure. This places great pressure on the IT teams supporting these networks to maintain these low latencies. Read the full article.

How the Right Network Packet Brokering Architecture Reduces Cost

Network downtime can be incredibly expensive: the price tag can be up to $60 million per year for North American organizations according to IHS Research. The bottom-line impact entails both hard costs, such as lower productivity or lost sales, and softer costs such as customer or employee frustration. Read the full article.

Overcoming the Observability Challenge for Microsoft Azure

For many organizations, customer satisfaction, competitiveness, operational efficiency, and profitability all rely on secure and responsive applications. That in turn makes comprehensive network observability critical, because it’s impossible to manage, monitor, or secure what you can’t see. Read the full article.

Key Drivers of 100Gbps Network Adoption

Migration to 100Gbps network speeds in enterprise data centers continues to gain momentum. According to data from Crehan Research, 100 and 25 Gbps Ethernet speeds enjoyed a 40 percent year-over-year rise and accounted for 24 percent of total high speed NIC revenue in 2020. The Dell’Oro group predicted that 100Gbps Ethernet switches will make up over 30 percent of the data center switch ports sold over the next five years. Read the full article.

Why Work-from-Home is Still Causing Chaos for IT

On the surface, most organizations have adjusted to the new work models brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet this shift to working from home has fundamentally changed the traffic patterns on most enterprise networks, and behind the scenes it is an extremely chaotic time for security and NetOps teams as they try to redo their policies, processes and technological solutions for this “new network normal.” Read the full article.
