The demand is continuously rising for professionals with core networking skills to help businesses run the rapidly growing and most sophisticated system networks. Networking can be highly complicated but is one of the top careers with staggering growth figures every year. Instead of focusing more on the years of active experience, managers are interested in hiring employees with more focused education in the field. Experts believe that candidates with up to date skills and latest networking training can help them lower costs, raise efficiency, and drive competitive advantage. And if you are considering Cisco training and certification to give your career a boost, you are on the right track.
Many organizations are struggling to drive more value, utility, and efficiency from data centers. The pursuit of a more efficient and powerful data center now revolves around virtualization. Legacy data centers have given way to virtualized network architectures or in other words, virtualized data centers.
Old data centers can be retrofitted and expanded into highly-efficient network architectures. Whereas new data centers are built using virtualization as a core component of the design. Virtualized data centers can run more agile applications and serve as a strong foundation for cloud-based computing.
With the introduction of Cisco ACI (Application Centric Infrastructure) in 2013, there was a breakthrough Software-Defined Networking (SDN) solution for data centers.
Throughout the years, there was a crucial need to have an effective networking device configuring method for networking firms. Cisco ACI addresses the need for simplicity in networking systems, which has become a necessity for enterprises. It specifically eliminates the need for each router and switch to be manually configured.
With the introduction of Cisco ACI, data center configuration activity is efficient, reliable and seamless. Traditional SDN infrastructure lacks an application-optimized approach. These SDNs are too focused on complex networking modules and therefore are missing the necessary functionality.
As a policy-based networking solution, ACI combines the best elements of software and hardware capabilities.
Keeping in view the increasing need of premium-quality data storage for your company, you as a stakeholder must make bold decisions to meet those highly-tailored data storage & management requirements. While you may have an abundance of options at hand, but NetApp’s offerings are quite parallel to your high-end needs which makes it a definite choice for transferring your existing on-premises data to cloud storage. If your enterprise follows more of an eco-friendly approach, NetApp’s machines provide you with a greener environment for that approach as well. Despite being highly-effective in that domain, NetApp also lets you store more data in lesser space which simplifies your networking infrastructure further.
For many, Azure’s Continuous Deployment may be just another buzzwords that come along the DevOps trend. In reality, it is one of the aspects of Azure that make it stand out as the best in the cloud. Unfortunately, many enterprises fail to utilize the full benefits of continuous deployment capabilities of Azure and end up spending more time and money on the deployment phase. Not to mention, lack of understanding also makes them vulnerable to the many pitfalls.
Amazon may have beaten Microsoft by launching its cloud platform around a decade ahead, but Microsoft has caught up real fast with Azure.

It comes as the natural choice for any enterprise that is making its first move towards the cloud. It is predicted that 2019 will be an even bigger year for Azure. It is now a consensus among the tech gurus that Azure will, in fact, grow bigger than its competitors will in the coming year. This means we might even live to see Azure surpassing AWS in months to come.
Microsoft has added a shiny new component called Azure Blockchain Workbench to their versatile set of cloud services. It is an abstraction layer in Azure that simplifies the creation of blockchain-based apps and smart contracts. People in the tech world are already familiar with Azure, the cloud computing service that lets developers build, test, and deploy applications through a network of Microsoft-managed servers. The Azure Blockchain Workbench is, however, the new kid on the block. This article discusses the technical details of the functionality offered by Azure Blockchain Workbench, however, if you want to learn the nitty-gritty details of developing blockchain-based applications you can sign up for Azure training courses such as Developing Azure solutions and Azure fundamentals.
Your enterprise must follow a robust approach if the end-target is to optimize the costs on cloud investments for better ROI. But migrating your on-premises data to cloud environments is in itself a costly process. However, Microsoft Azure’s cost-saving policy provides many benefits to enterprises that follow an ROI optimization approach. The cost of data maintenance and storage is reduced with Azure.
