PlexxiPulse – Unlock the Potential: Webinar

Join us as we partner with Arrow Electronics for an exclusive webinar on Thursday, October 6 at 2:30 p.m. ET. Our Director of Product Management, Simon McCormack, will discuss how to unlock the performance potential of Nutanix HCI through Plexxi networks.

Nutanix employs a clustered, scale-out architecture that requires node-to-node communication to synchronize, load-balance and scale-out compute and storage resources. This node-to-node, east/west data traffic requires workload isolation to guarantee Nutanix workload performance, security and fault isolation, as well as ensure that Nutanix node-to-node workload traffic does not negatively impact LAN performance.

This webinar will provide an overview of Nutanix value props, architecture and related customer deployment challenges, and specifically discuss deploying Nutanix and Plexxi Infrastructure Network Fabric.

Government Computer News: Disrupting the network for better security and resiliency
By Tim Solms
Earlier this year, the Army Contracting Command (ACC) released a sources sought notice for “technologies that support operations to design, build, configure, secure, operate, maintain and sustain networks, including technologies to build in resiliency.” It’s obvious that the Department of Defense is getting serious about network modernization. But are Pentagon officials ready for the necessary disruption that will bring? To find out, let’s focus on a couple of points from the ACC notice, starting with security. As cybersecurity threats continue to evolve, it’s not a matter of if the next attack will happen, but when it will occur.

Data Center Knowledge: When Selecting a Data Center Provider, Keep an Eye on the Edge
By Bill Kleyman
As your business and user base become more distributed, there’s a lot more data to keep an eye on. You need to deploy technologies that can keep pace with today’s digital demands. This means working with the right kind of data center partners, service providers who can keep up with your business. Today, organizations across all verticals and sizes are looking for better ways to control and distribute their data. Many have turned to cloud. Many others are now looking at deeper cloud services to differentiate.

Government Technology: What Obama Did for Tech: Data Center Consolidation
By Eyragon Eidam
Another major element of former federal CIO Vivek Kundra’s 5-point plan to reform federal IT was to slash the number of federally run data centers from 2,100 to 1,300. The efficiency move was intended to reduce the $600 billion spent by the federal government on IT infrastructure in the past decade. Newer technologies, like the cloud, made rows and rows of servers in a data center, running day and night, largely unnecessary relics of an earlier time, not to mention physical monuments of waste and excess too often associated with federal government agencies.
