  • Let’s look at the critical needs to get to on-demand virtualized IT or what is commonly known as enterprise cloud.Read through 3 itemsKey insight, ADX is in a unique part of the network. It sits between clients and application infrastructure and has a lot of intelligence with respect to application performance…It just needs additional technology to solve the above 3 needs
  • Topology view to see where Application Resource Broker would resideServerIron serving application traffic from both physical application infrastructure and virtualized application infrastructureUnique position in network…can see application response time and also infrastructure loadApplication Resource Broker communicates with multiple ServerIron ADX’s (Metrics and mgmt) (e.g. how many concurrent connections are various pieces of the application infrastructure currently sustaining..)It also communicates with VMware vCenter (Both VM metrics lie CPU, Mem usage and VM mgt like power-up a certain VM)All this information is visualized on vSphere client (Application Resource Broker appears as another tab on that interface but providing an application-centric viewCombine that with additional information from other infrastructure mgrs will lead to highly optimized on-demand infrastructureApplication Resource Broker Communicates withServerIron ADXsInfrastructure ManagersWM ClientsE.g. vSphere ClientsWM receives information, interprets it based on certain thresholds and can then send commands to infrastructure (push-button or automated). Commands such as provision a new VM to meet sustained activity currently being experienced and add to load balancing pool to ensure it gets used immediately..(no IT ticketing system needed)VisibilityApp Response time and VM performanceDynamically Group VM’s with VIPs/AppsSmart Dynamic ProvisioningStart/Stop Virtual (physical) Machines based on eventsAdjust load balancing configurationResult: Enable application-aware Virtual Machine (VM) management decisions for more effective application delivery servicesShow mapping of VM’s to actual application servicesLeverage the correlation of VM performance information with application response time from ServerIronAlerts/Reports
  • Here’s the Brocade One architecture slide I showed you earlier.&lt;CLICK&gt; I’d like to now drill down into the application delivery portion of the architecture, sharing with you our existing Brocade ADX solutions, along with innovations we are pursuing relative to the application trends I just outlined.
