Dataflow is increasing at a rate unseen in history. Network managers are tasked with enabling massive quantities of
new data in a secure and highly available fashion, all while facilitating access to new types of form factors and data
stores. This challenge is often met with layers of networking
hardware and tools resulting in a complex mess, or even worse, a
culture of network protectionism that inhibits business innovation.
In 2018, the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) completed a research survey of 450 cybersecurity, IT, and networking security professionals with knowledge of or responsibility for the policies, processes, and controls used for remote office/branch office (ROBO) security. This report is the summary of ESG's conclusions from the study.
Application performance and delivery have changed.
Should your network change too?
Cloud is changing the fundamentals of how IT teams deliver applications
and manage their performance. Applications are increasingly deployed
farther from users, crossing networks outside of IT’s direct control. Instead
of enterprise data centers, many apps now reside in public and hybrid cloud
environments. There are even new breeds of applications, built upon
microservices and containers.
Today, IT needs modern solutions that:
? Extend on-premises networks, apps, and infrastructure resources
to the cloud.
? Maintain high levels of performance, user experience, and security
across all applications, including microservices based apps.
? Sustain operational consistency across on-premises and
? Move away from the expense, complexity, and poor performance
of traditional networking methods.
These solutions are available for apps running on Google Cloud Platform
(GCP) through the allia
If your organization's servers run applications that are critical to your business, chances are that you'd benefit from an application delivery solution. Today's Web applications can be delivered to users anywhere in the world and the devices used to access Web applications have become quite diverse.
At a projected market of over $4B by 2010 (Goldman Sachs), virtualizationhas firmly established itself as one of the most importanttrends in Information Technology. Virtualization is expectedto have a broad influence on the way IT manages infrastructure.Major areas of impact include capital expenditure and ongoingcosts, application deployment, green computing, and storage.
The idea of load balancing is well defined in the IT world: A network device accepts traffic on behalf ofa group of servers, and distributes that traffic according to load balancing algorithms and the availabilityof the services that the servers provide. From network administrators to server administrators to applicationdevelopers, this is a generally well understood concept.
You may have read in the news about horrific security gaps that have the potential of bringing down whole infrastructures, leaking critical business and personal data, and exposing organizations to massive liability.
There is no question that improving organizations’ security posture is a critical requirement for infrastructure and security teams.
Years ago, there were proprietary networking solutions like IBM Token Ring. Every new PO had to go to the same vendor if customers wanted to ensure connectivity.
Then came Ethernet which promised to be an open interoperable standard. However, vendors recreated lock-in by implementing proprietary VLAN extensions such as private VLANs.
The response to the question “How is one Intent-Based Networking offering different than the others?” typically sounds subjective, descriptive, and open to interpretation. What is needed is a tangible, objective, and fact-based nomenclature that can help you rationalize the maturity of Intent-Based Networking solutions. Using this nomenclature, we should be able to map Intent-Based Networking solutions to a specific maturity level, starting with Level 0 (low maturity/incomplete) up to Level 3 which enables a fully capable Intent-Based Networking solution (mature/complete).
Apstra introduced the notion of Intent-Based Networking and Self-Operating Networks™ in June of 2016, and in our blog “Intent Based Networking: What Is It” we provided a definition of Intent-Based Networking, listing capabilities that a complete Intent-Based Networking system needs to provide. The goal is to categorize maturity levels of various Intent-Based Networking implementations and enable network operators to

Bandwidth. Speed. Throughput. These terms are not interchangeable. They are
interrelated concepts in data networking that help measure capacity, the time
it takes to get from one point to the next and the actual amount of data
you’re receiving, respectively.
When you buy an Internet connection from Spectrum Enterprise, you’re buying
a pipe between your office and the Internet with a set capacity, whether it is
25 Mbps, 10 Gbps, or any increment in between. However, the bandwidth we
provide does not tell the whole story; it is the throughput of the entire system
that matters. Throughput is affected by obstacles, overhead and latency,
meaning the throughput of the system will never equal the bandwidth of your
The good news is that an Internet connection from Spectrum Enterprise is
engineered to ensure you receive the capacity you purchase; we proactively
monitor your bandwidth to ensure problems are dealt with promptly, and
we are your advocates across the Internet w
Today’s organizations are becoming more innovative and dynamic by adopting mobility, IoT, analytics and cloud technologies. With this, come growing demands for network scale, agility and threat protection which call for an intent-based network. The Cisco® Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) gives you comprehensive intent-based networking across your campus, branch and WAN with robust wired, wireless, and routing solutions.
Software-defined Networking (SDN) im WAN bietet die Möglichkeit, durch höhere Betriebseffizienz, schnellere Erstellung von Services sowie differenzierte und personalisierte Netzwerk-Services die Kosten zu senken
Edison has followed the development and use of Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) over the past five years. Cisco ACI delivers an intent-based networking framework to enable agility in the datacenter. It captures higher-level business and user intent in the form of a policy and translates this intent into the network constructs necessary to dynamically provision the network, security, and infrastructure services.
Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what your organization needs and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals. Cisco® Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA™) is your team’s bridge to an intentbased network. It is an open, extensible, software-driven architecture that accelerates and simplifies your enterprise network operations, while lowering costs and reducing your risk. Only Cisco provides a single network fabric that is powered by deep intelligence and integrated security to deliver automation and assurance across your entire organization at scale. Cisco DNA gives IT time back from time-consuming, repetitive network configuration tasks so you can focus on the innovation your business needs. Cisco DNA automation and assurance are built on a Software-Defined Networking (SDN) controller, ri
