The Time is Now for Moving to 25GbE

first_imgThere’s never been a better time to adopt 25GbE, both from a technology and an economic perspective.It’s no secret that broader technology shifts require substantially more network bandwidth. Just to name a few, these include:Virtualization in all its forms – server, storage, network, desktopIncreasing use of and demand for video/streamingIoT requiring near real-time response rates across the networkNumerous and varied cloud architecturesNew infrastructure options such as multi-core processing, NVMe, PCIe 3.0 and high speed flash storage need increased throughputAs organizations push more traffic into their enterprise and private data centers, and with bigger “pipes” coming into the enterprise, more bandwidth is also required as data moves down across the fabric or top-of-rack switches (ToR). The bulk of today’s data center top-of-rack (ToR) switches support 10GbE connections in the rack and connect to higher speed 40/100GbE fabrics. The next step in the evolution is for in-rack connectivity to move from 10GbE to 25GbE and for fabric uplinks to move from 40GbE to 100GbE.The Economic Advantages of 25GbE at the Top-Of-RackThe availability of 25GbE switches and adapters has changed the economics of upgrading server-to-switch connectivity. New 25GbE chips use the same class of cables as 10GbE but deliver 2.5 times the performance, while using the same number of lanes as 10GbE on the ASIC chip. That means 25GbE switches can be produced very cost-effectively.Using a single lane on a switch or adapter, 25GbE ports also compare favorably to 40GbE technology that requires four lanes. Deploying 25GbE networks also enables organizations to significantly reduce the required number of switches and cables — along with space, power and cooling — compared to similar bandwidth solutions using 10GbE and 40GbE technology. Fewer network components reduce ongoing management and maintenance costs while more efficiently utilizing servers already in place.Most important, with 25/50/100GbE multi-rate connectivity, enterprises now have a path to 100GbE that is non-disruptive, can be implemented today and provides economical steps along the way. Considering the economics, it is no surprise that the move to 25GbE (and 50GbE) is accelerating — a recent five-year forecast by industry analyst Dell’Oro Group predicts 25GbE will deliver a significant amount of Ethernet bandwidth by 2018.Key customer benefits of 25GbE with Dell EMC Networking:Run your business applications and services faster with 5X the throughput with similar economics to 10GbEFuture-proof your infrastructure with backwards compatibility to 10GbE and easier migration to 100GbERealize economic advantages on both cost and revenue generation using an open networking architecture It runs on a pair of cables just like 10GbE, so moving to 25GbE does not require any cabling infrastructure upgrades—it is fully compatible with the existing 10GbE infrastructure.In addition to implementing new technologies, many IT organizations are tasked with decreasing their CAPEX and OPEX expenditures and resources. IT departments are taking a hard look at making their data centers more efficient and simplifying operational and maintenance activities across the board. The push behind these mandated reductions vary from changing economic conditions to government requirements for green initiatives.With the recent introduction of the Dell EMC Networking S5048F-ON, we are committed to making 25GbE networking widely accessible. So much so that for a limited time, we’re introducing 25GbE for the price of 10GbE. Now that’s networking math that anyone can understand.last_img read more

Those laid-back Mermaid Beach pad feels

first_imgA lush green lawn complements the timber deck.THERE’S something about warm timber, fresh white walls and comfortable furniture that gives off a holiday-home-by-the-beach kind of vibe.Never more so than inside this newly renovated Mermaid Beach abode. “The whole home has a really nice feel, it’s got that relaxed, beachy vibe,” said marketing agent Daniel Donovan of Ray White Collective – Mermaid Beach.“There’s lots of natural light flowing in thanks to the northeast aspect.” More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa7 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day agoFriends and family will happily occupy the undercover outdoor area. Bi-fold doors offer easy access to the undercover outdoor area where lush landscaping complements the new deck.“They’ve really opened the home up inside to give it more living space,” Mr Donovan said. “It flows really well.”Step outside the front gate where the Mermaid Beach lifestyle comes into its own, he added: “You’ve got shops, restaurants, bars and the ocean all in walking distance.” Feel right at home inside 111 Petrel Ave, Mermaid Beach.Having bought in 2012, the owners have recently completed a renovation which saw the home made over inside and out. Upstairs a rear retreat has been converted into a huge master bedroom with walk-in robe, ensuite and its own lounge area, while downstairs a fourth bedroom creates dual living potential.last_img read more

GFA members elect former FIFA referee Otis James as new president

first_img‘Ready to take GFA forward’Former FIFA Referee Otis James has been elected President of the Georgetown Football Association (GFA) following the hosting of an Extraordinary General Meeting held yesterday morning at the Pegasus Hotel.Sunday’s successful meeting was necessary as a result of the continued lack of activity and non-functional Executive Committee in the GFA over the past three years.This lack of activity prompted the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) to intervene as the parent body for the sport in Guyana to ensure that the administrative arm of the game in the city became functional again.A GFF appointed IMC came into being in July of 2018 in accordance with the guidelines and provisions of Article 2 [d] and [e], Article 13 [a] of the GFF Constitution and Article 82, in addition to Article 8 (2) of the FIFA Statutes.Following the work of the Trevor Williams-led IMC, which was even granted an extension, the GFA Clubs, in a letter dated 8th October, 2019, in accordance with Article 31 (2) of the Constitution of the (GFA), requested an Extraordinary General Meeting of the GFA and this was set for Saturday, November 2, 2019.Members present at yesterday’s Extraordinary General Meeting were Georgetown Football Club, Beacon Football Club, Northern Rangers Football Club, Camptown Football Club, Black Pearl Club, Eastveldt United Football Club, Pele Football Club, GT Panthers Football Club, Riddim Squad Football Club, Wolves United Football Club and Order and Discipline Football Club.GT Panthers FC (new club) and Order and Discipline FC (list of delegates submitted after the legal deadline had expired) were not able to vote.Conducting yesterday’s election was the Guyana Football Federation Electoral Committee’s Chairman, Charles Corbin and Rev. Raphael Jackman. Prior to the Electoral Committee taking over proceedings, the Extraordinary General Meeting was chaired by GFF Third Vice president, Thandi McAllister.James, in his first speech as president, expressed thanks to the GFF and everyone who had worked hard towards ensuring that the Extraordinary Meeting came off which now sets the pathway for the association to get back to a state of normalcy after being dormant for about three years.“This is the time, it is now or never.Within the next three months we will see the work that the new GFA has to offer, so let us all put our heads together and work together for one cause, football.Many times we have football and a lot of people look around and say that that should be done and this should be done; gentlemen and ladies, it is time for us stop trying to be whatever we want to be and do the right things we are supposed to do.It is time for us to put all our differences aside and work together as a team and let football be the winner.”The full executive: Otis James – President, Akram Sabree – Vice President, Clifton Adams – Vice President, Dirk Exeter – Vice President, Fizal Khan – Secretary, Lomel Johnson – Treasurer and Penny John – Assistant/Secretary Treasurer.last_img read more
