Ask the Experts: What’s the Difference between ASP and SaaS?
This interesting question recently arrived in our Ask the Experts inbox, so I thought I’d write a brief post clarifying the difference between ASP and SaaS

vs wan  The Side Effects (Heterogeneous vs Homogeneous) Taking into account this fundamental distinction between an ASP and a SaaS provider, there is an important side effect: While an ASP environment tends to be very heterogeneous, with, e.g., data centers composed of servers, applications, and environments from a wide variety of types, a SaaS environment tends to be unique for all the provider’s customers: all of them are attached to the same type of server, operating system platform, business application,

The 2008 Handbook of Application Delivery: A Guide to Decision Making


IT organizations can no longer manage networks in isolation from the applications they support, requiring a shift from focusing on devices to a focus on performance. But a number of factors complicate the task of ensuring acceptable application performance, including the lack of visibility into application performance. Learn tips to plan, optimize, manage, and control your application performance and improve delivery.

One of the reasons why IT organizations should not expect a level of undo precision from a WAN emulation tool has already been discussed ' the complex and dynamic nature of the IT environment. Another reason is the inherent nature of any modeling or simulation tool. One of the key characteristics of these tools is that they typically contain a slippery slope of complexity. By that is meant that when creating a simulation tool, a great deal of Read More

Extending VoIP to Remote Locations: Challenges and Solutions


In the past, the growing pains of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) centered on voice quality. However, VoIP solutions are now attractive alternatives to conventional analog voice and the public switched telephone network (PSTN). As real-world VoIP rollouts continue, however, new sets of challenges are emerging; in particular, businesses are encountering unanticipated problems as they deploy VoIP to remote locations.

The Essential Supply Chain


Supply Chain Management (SCM) once viewed as a way to obtain a competitive advantage, is now perceived as a logical and necessary extension of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The reasons: First, traditional ERP systems lack the advanced planning tools necessary for companies to respond to an increasingly competitive business environment. Second, advances in computing power and data transmission enable disparate entities to communicate efficiently and at a low cost. Finally, vendors have observed the complementary nature of SCM and ERP and are engaged in consolidation of their product suites.

TCO Analysis of a Traditional Data Center vs. a Scalable, Containerized Data Center


Standardized, scalable, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules provide a total cost of ownership (TCO) savings of 30% compared with traditional, built-out data center power and cooling infrastructure. Avoiding overbuilt capacity and scaling the design over time contributes to a significant percentage of the overall savings. This white paper provides a quantitative TCO analysis of the two architectures, and illustrates the key drivers of both the capex and opex savings of the improved architecture.
