How to Use a Network Appliance SAN for Server and Storage Consolidation
If you’re dealing with increasing demands on your server storage by adding servers one at a time, the number of servers is growing hand in hand with management

virtualized storage area network  ( www.netapp.com/news/techontap/3248.pdf ), each virtualized server is allocated a qtree in a SAN_vmware volume on the NetApp storage system. In addition, each VMware LUN is formatted as a VMFS-3 volume. This allows the VMware Virtual Center to be used to migrate a virtual machine from one VMware ESX host to another while the server is live (using VMotion™). Additionally, the customer now has localized disaster recovery with the high-availability (HA) feature in VI3. The HA feature allows virtual

Counting the Cost of Network Efficiency


It is hard to quantify the costs of poor network or application management, but they include lost productivity due to time spent fixing problems and increased capital and operating expenses. But when creating IT budgets, organizations need to consider the impact of investment in network and application management on overall revenues. IT efficiency should be a priority item for any corporate agenda, and executives need to understand that the network is not only a core part of what their organization does, but plays a key role in achieving business goals.

There is actually a direct correlation between network performance and application performance. There is of course intrinsic value in network hardware and software, but more importantly many people in the organization rely on the applications that the network supports—so if the network is running slowly, users’ applications will slow down too. Hence a budget priority should be where changes in the network are needed to avoid problems arising or improve application performance and hence overall productivity.

This white paper makes a case for the organizational need for solutions and tools which provide network performance information and help identify problems and their causes and areas where improvements should be made, making it possible for budgetary decisions to be based on performance data. It looks at questions the IT team needs to ask to get to the heart of network problems and find the best solution, as well as three categories of network improvements, and also details how an AANPM, or application aware network performance management solution, takes an application-centric approach to network issues and can lead to faster problem solving, reducing downtime, increasing productivity, and saving troubleshooting time.
