Multi-CDN Made Easy Webinar

Many enterprises are finding it increasingly difficult to deliver a consistently high quality end user experience to a global online audience using a single Content Delivery Network (CDN). CDN providers have different strengths and weaknesses so it is unsurprising when a single provider does not adequately address the needs of a global online organization.

The good news is there are plenty of CDN providers to choose from, and by leveraging the right combination of providers, enterprises can simultaneously improve end user quality of experience while lowering costs. The means to achieve this goal is based on the ability to intelligently steer traffic to the right CDN at the right time.

Join our live hands-on webinar to learn how to plan, implement, and test a multi-CDN strategy that's right for your organization.

Key Reasons For Using an Independent DNS Provider

Many cloud and CDN providers also offer in-house managed DNS services. If you are hosting your content or applications with these providers, you might use their DNS service without much thought. However, this can limit your ability to deliver the performance and customer experience your business needs.

In this webinar you will learn when and why you should use an independent DNS provider.

Customer-centric CDN delivery: Real user-ensured delivery for Hybrid and Multi-CDN architectures

Multi-CDN for Increased Customer Satisfaction

Delivery over a multiple CDN architecture is a best practice for modern Ops teams. Ensuring uptime and multiple delivery contingencies gives teams peace of mind and the ability to reduce the adverse effects of vendor lock-in. When you’re able to load balance your application, video, and website content delivery across multiple CDNs, you can ensure your end users are shielded from service degradations and outages. Cedexis ADP’s software-defined delivery logic makes real-time decisions on which CDNs to use, based on real-user community data, application health, and any other dataset you depend on.

The Eaton Rack and Enclosure Fundamentals Handbook

Not so many years ago, network closets, server rooms and data centers were designed from a “room to rack” standpoint. Deciding specifically where to store your technology typically came later in the design process. However, rapid technology refresh cycles, the need to rackmount more equipment and the desire for increased cooling capacities in an enclosed rack (known as an enclosure), have all begun to reverse that trend. Today, IT professionals are designing these critical workspaces with more of a “rack to room” methodology.

Traditionally, any structural support used to rackmount equipment was appropriately called a rack whether it was a two- or four-post structure. As time progressed and form factors of servers, network, storage, and power equipment have changed, the terms enclosure and cabinet also came into the mix as four-post racks were enclosed with front and rear doors and side panels.

This handbook is meant to help you choose, organize, and manage your racks and enclosures. As such, we will refer to them only as racks and enclosures throughout. In an effort to help you make the best selection for your requirements, we’ll cover some of the components within racks and enclosures as well as some tips on deploying them. Everything is interconnected, so the more you plan in advance, the better prepared you will be. For instance, it is important not to overlook power and data cables. Tangled cables can cause downtime or impede productivity, and the more racks and enclosures you are deploying, the more important an effective cable management strategy becomes.

Enhance Hyperconvergence With Infrastructure Management

Hyperconvergence collapses the physical components of IT with its virtual aspects into a single appliance form factor. Servers, storage and virtualization layers are bundled into one scalable pool of resources and completely integrated for easier, faster and more cost-effective management. With HyperFlex™ Systems, Cisco® went one step further by including integrated network fabric for faster deployment, simpler management and easier scalability. Still, vital to the operation of all hyperconverged solutions is the fundamental reliance on power infrastructure, and to realize the full benefits of hyperconvergence, it is critical to deploy effective monitoring and management of the power infrastructure. This paper demonstrates ways to improve resiliency against power disruptions and make IT resources easier to manage and scale. Download our whitepaper to learn more!
