World IPv6 Launch Day: One Year Later

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 3:30:55 PM America/Chicago

In February 2011, the internet officially “ran out” of available IP addresses, the equivalent of a phone number or mailing address for a computer. An IP address is a sequence of numbers that allows computers and other devices on a computer network to connect to the internet and communicate with other connected devices. Routers and switches rely on IP addresses, as do web browsers, email programs, and instant messaging software in order to serve their purpose. To address the shortage of IP addresses, another protocol was in the works to supplement and eventually replace Internet Protocol version 4, the current internet addressing system at the time which remains widely in use today.

Monday, May 20, 2013 6:53:42 PM America/Chicago

Juniper’s stock of data center infrastructure management equipment needed to be bolstered with the addition of wireless LAN appliances and Trapeze’s sterling reputation seemed to be a wise choice. Not every acquisition is a happy one, however, and some end up alienating a company’s customer base.

The Sun brand is still regarded as a pioneer of server technology; however Oracle has lost its popularity among techies. Can the same be said of Juniper’s wireless LAN management appliances?

The Need for Powerful DCIM Systems

Friday, April 26, 2013 4:31:05 PM America/Chicago

A data center can range in size from a small server room to an industrial operation that powers an entire university. It’s where the computer, telecommunications, and storage systems for the entire operation are housed. In addition to all that, data centers also contain the backup power supplies and data connections so that the organization being powered by the center can continue to function. Large centers are essentially industrial sized structures that use as much electricity as a small town, which unsurprisingly creates a lot of air pollution.

The advent and rising popularity of cloud computing has brought data centers under greater scrutiny from businesses and the governments who are concerned about security, availability, and the need to become more environmentally friendly. The new data center infrastructure management equipment was designed to facilitate these goals.
