Grid Computing is an emerging computing model that provides the ability to perform higher throughput computing by taking advantage of many networked computers to model a virtual computer architecture that is able to distribute process execution across a parallel infrastructure. Grids use the resources of many separate computers connected by a network (usually the Internet) to solve large-scale computation problems.

This report describes how improving the efficiency of data storage, deduplication solutions has enabled organizations to cost-justify the increased use of disk for backup and recovery. However, the changing demands on IT storage infrastructures have begun to strain the capabilities of initial deduplication products. To meet these demands, a new generation of deduplication solutions is emerging which scale easily, offer improved performance and availability and simplify management and integration within the IT storage infrastructure. HP refers to this new generation as "Deduplication 2.0.

Many products on the market today promise to measure and manage "end user experience" - but how can they if they are only testing from a central location? Download this whitepaper to learn how to see and solve user experience problems from their point of view. We'll show you to measure actual application traffic from the user perspective and other critical points in the network so you can pinpoint and understand where the issue is, either the end points or the path between them.
Abstract: Learn the essential considerations when evaluating network management tools and processes. We'll show you how most network management systems fail to deliver a complete picture of network and application performance.and that puts the organization at risk. Being aware of the potential shortcomings of an incomplete NMS is essential.
In this whitepaper we'll cover three common shortcomings, the possible consequences, and we'll highlight six key capabilities to be aware of when evaluating your network management tools and processes in order to avoid these shortcomings and associated risks.

Independent research firm Knowledge Integrity Inc. examine two high performance computing technologies that are transitioning into the mainstream: high performance massively parallel analytical database management systems (ADBMS) and distributed parallel programming paradigms, such as MapReduce, (Hadoop, Pig, and HDFS, etc.). By providing an overview of both concepts and looking at how the two approaches can be used together, they conclude that combining a high performance batch programming and execution model with an high performance analytical database provides significant business benefits for a number of different types of applications.
Enterprises and equipment vendors are learning the value of a complete readiness assessment before deploying VoIP across an organization. The assessments are a critical step to a successful VoIP deployment, but many enterprises do not perform an assessment because of cost or because after performing a baseline on network utilization, they assume that their network has enough bandwidth to accommodate the voice traffic. This white paper explains why it is essential to perform a readiness assessment both for initial VoIP deployment and also for expansion projects to avoid unplanned additional costs and deployment delays.

With increasing bandwidth demands, network professionals are constantly looking to optimize network resources, ensure adequate bandwidth, and deliver high performance. Often, buying more bandwidth is not a priority or an option due to limited budgets and pressure to reduce IT costs.
When a business expands an existing facility,
adds a new location, incorporates an influx of
new users, or upgrades an existing infrastructure
- it's vital to ensure network readiness and
validate infrastructure changes to optimize
network performance, minimize user downtime
and reduce problems after implementation. This
white paper describes a methodology to manage
network changes that meets the need for speed
of implementation without sacrificing accuracy.
Network installers have completed a new
local area network segment. New cabling
was installed to the appropriate work areas
from the equipment closets. New switches
and access points were installed, patched into
the cabling plant and configured. How will the
network perform? This newly installed network
needs to be validated to prove the installation
was done correctly, that the LAN will operate
trouble-free, and that users will be satisfied
with the performance.
An Ethernet service provider needs to demonstrate to his customer that the service he is providing is compliant with the service level agreement. A network installer needs to demonstrate the functionality of a newly turned-up Ethernet link. A network troubleshooter needs to resolve complaints about slow networks. Ethernet performance measurement can help. Various metrics can quantify and characterize performance. Test plans can be written to satisfy varying organizational objectives. This white paper will describe advancements in field measurement of end-to-end Ethernet performance.
