IDG Contributor Network: What’s your problem? Survey uncovers top sources of IT pain

Published on 22nd September, 2017, 2:07 PM

It’s hardly surprising that IT professionals have their hands full in the age of IoT (Internet of Things) and Big Data. Supporting rapidly growing data volumes, new data types, and many more data sources is making it harder than ever for IT to meet service level agreements (SLAs) while keeping spending in check. 

The complexity IT manages is clear in the results of a recent Storage Census of over 300 IT professionals my company, Primary Data, conducted at VMworld 2017. The survey showcased the conflicting pressures currently faced by IT leaders. Those surveyed included delivering performance, executing data migrations, meeting expectations with existing budgets, and integrating the cloud into their infrastructure among the biggest challenges facing their departments today. Let’s examine the factors that contribute to these challenges and how IT can solve them.

Cisco Intersight brings cloud management to compute

Also, organizations started to embrace the concept of DevOps, which necessitates a level of dynamism and speed never seen before in data centers.

Arista reaches for the hybrid clouds

Published on 21st September, 2017, 2:28 PM

Many years ago, when Arista Networks was in its infancy, its charismatic and sometimes controversial (at least to the folks at Cisco) CEO talked about how the company’s software-first approach would disrupt the networking industry. Just a few years later, the company stands a $1.7 billion revenue company with a dominant position in the webscale industry and a market cap of over $13 billion, so clearly CEO Jayshree Ullal’s prophecy came true.

Arista’s software rigor enabled the company to quickly jump into verticals where low latency and high performance mattered. Also, because of Arista’s software prowess, the company has been able to expand its addressable market to see to the networking needs of dense virtualization and containerized environments, as well as private cloud deployments, and quickly adapt the latest and greatest silicon.
