Industry Perspectives: HP, Intel, Fieldview

This week we presented Industry Perspectives columns from Yanick Pouffary of HP on the transition to IPv6, James Greene of Intel on the security features of the new Xeon processors, and John Consoli of FieldView on the meaning of DCIM.

The Industry Perspectives channel at Data Center Knowledge highlights thought leadership in the data center arena, providing industry professionals with the opportunity to share their insight and expertise. For your weekend reading, here’s a recap of this week’s columns:

  • How to Make a Seamless Switch to IPv6 - A holistic approach encompassing network, infrastructure, security and applications is required to make a smooth transition to IPv6, writes Yanick Pouffary of HP. There are challenges, but  transitioning to IPv6 also offers organizations new IT and business opportunities.
  • It’s Onward and Upward with Cloud Security - Intel's new Xeon processors continue the company's focus of building security features into the hardware level to complement software-based security, writes James Greene of Intel. Cloud security technologies which debuted in earlier-generation processors have been further optimized in the Intel Xeon processor E5 family.
  • What's The True Meaning of DCIM? - Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) systems are increasingly being deployed in the data center due to the need for complete visibility into costs and capacity, writes John Consoli of FieldView. But what does DCIM really mean? Far too many throw around the term without a full grasp of the acronym’s definition.
