Managing data center interconnects for disaster recovery

JDSU recently released a white paper addressing the subject of managing data center interconnect performance for disaster recovery.

JDSU and Anixter are promoting a recent white paper addressing the subject of managing data center interconnect performance for disaster recovery.

The paper's premise is as follows: Data center interconnects (DCI) are traditionally used for critical data center replication to meet corporate compliance and continuity requirements. Recent virtualization technology now allows IT to shift computing pools with DCI for greater resource efficiency and accessibility. With greater reliance on the services running in DCI environments, IT and service providers must have visibility into the performance and events that can impact end-user and business processes.

Managing the success of these services, and the critical wide-area network (WAN) links, requires analysis solutions that can identify baseline behavior and isolate performance degradation to avoid disrupting the most important services being carried out across these critical links. To this end, the paper goes on to describe how JDSU's Xgig analyzer performs storage analysis on Fibre Channel and Ethernet networks.

The JDSU white paper is hosted at Anixter's site. You can view/download the paper directly here.
