Cool: Plan Your Own Datacenter Deployment

- February 21, 2008 - 1 Comment

There has been so much cool stuff happening on in the last month that I am just barely keeping up. Something we updated a couple of weeks back is worth a look: The “Data Center Design Best Practices Tool”:You can access this newly updated tool right on, and it now includes a very much end-to-end approach to planing called DCAP 3.0.(From the DCAP web page: This third phase of DCAP testing builds on the previous phase by tying many of the individual data center elements together through the use of business applications. While the previous phases of testing focused mainly on the individual performance of siloed technologies such as LAN, SAN, global site load balancing, and WAN optimization, DCAP 3.0 delivers end-to-end data center deployment. Adding Oracle 11i E-Business Suite and Microsoft Exchange 2003 was a key deliverable for this phase of testing. These applications were built into the topology to demonstrate how each individual element could work together to provide a robust data center deployment. DCAP 3.0 also brought the addition of bladeservers to provide a more real-world environment.)Enjoy!Technorati Tags:
