DHCP

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is used to dynamically allocate IP addresses and configuration details to hosts from a pool of IP addresses, reducing the need for users or administrators to configure these manually.

DHCP servers are typically configured on routers or standalone servers, and will require centralised management.

IP Performance offer two DHCP Management solutions, which are architected in different ways, and which cover the requirements of organisations large and small. Click on the partner logos below for more information.

DNS

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a distributed directory service which is critical to the operation of the Internet.

As the number of domains and Internet resources has grown, effective management of DNS servers and resources has become vital to organisations.

IP Performance offer two DNS Management solutions, which are architected in different ways, and which cover the requirements of organisations large and small. Click on the partner logos before for more information.

DR Business Continuity

Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity (BC) solutions rely on a large number of networking technologies, including routing and switching, link, balancing, load balancing/ADC, Global DNS balancing and IPAM, network virtualisation and SDN, among others.

IP Performance have a large portfolio of products that serve this area, and will ensure that we design the appropriate solution for any customers' DR/BC requirements.

IPAM

IP address management (IPAM) is a means of planning, tracking, and managing the Internet Protocol address space used in a network.

IPAM integrates DNS and DHCP so that each is aware of changes in the other (for instance DNS knowing of the IP address taken by a client via DHCP, and updating itself accordingly).

IPAM tools are increasingly important as new IPv6 networks are deployed with larger address pools, different subnetting techniques, and more complex 128-bit hexadecimal numbers which are not as easily human-readable as IPv4 addresses.

KVM

KVM (Keyboard, Video & Mouse) is a series of technologies for extending the peripherals (keyboard, video, mouse or pointing device) away from the CPU. KVM devices come in a variety of types and applications - server-side rackmount KVM for datacentres; desktop KVM extenders for increased distance; desktop KVM switches for switching between multiple target machines.

IP Performance work closely with Vertiv to deliver these solutions to customers. Click on the partner logo below for more information.

Load Balancing

Load Balancers, or Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), spread the distribution of workloads across multiple computing resources. Load balancing aims to optimise resource use, maximise throughput, minimize response time, and avoid overload of any single resource.

IP Performance partner with both Barracuda Networks and Brocade to offer physical, software-based and virtualised ADC solutions. Click on the partner logos below for more information.

Mobility/BYOD

Mobile Device Management (MDM) ensures employees stay productive and do not breach corporate policies. MDM primarily secures emails and corporate documents on devices, enforcing corporate policies, integrating and managing corporate-owned mobile assets including laptops tablets and mobile phones. MDM implementations may be either on-premises or cloud-based.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is less a technology than a business policy or strategy, allowing employees, contractors and visitors to connect their personal devices to the corporate network, wired or wirelessly. This poses various security risks and privacy issues. For example, technologies exist to carry out host integrity checking, policy compliance and patch management, but imposing these on a privately-owned, non-corporate owned device is problematic. A typical solution to non-compliant devices is to redirect them to a captive portal, offering Internet access and limited (or no) corporate resources.

IP Performance's portfolio includes a number of products that serve this area. Click on the partner logos below for more information.

NFV

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is a network architecture concept that uses the technologies of IT virtualisation to virtualise entire classes of network node functions into building blocks that may connect, or chain together, to create communication services. NFV relies upon, but differs from, traditional server-virtualisation techniques. It also differs from Software Defined Networking, although SDN is often leveraged to implement and manage an NFV infrastructure.

NFV, SDN and their underlying virtualisation concepts have been disruptive, game-changing technologies. Physical hardware hosts a number of virtual guest machines (VMs), controlled by a Hypervisor, and agnostic in terms of OS to the host machine. Originally server-based, it encompassed the desktop environment, and now network resources (routers, switches) are virtualised. Few organisations today do not have some element of virtualisation in their networks.

Most of IP Performance's partners offer their products and solutions as virtual as well as physical instances. IP Performance partner with VMware, one of the pioneers of virtualisation, for their virtualisation and NFV technologies. Click on the partner logo below for more information.

Remote Management

Remote Management (of power, cooling, environmental controls, compute and network resources) is of interest to any organisation which requires access and management of computer room resources. This is particularly true of large unmanned "light-out" Data Centres, for reasons of security, control of airflow and cooling, power consumption and cost efficiency.

IP Performance work closely with Vertiv to deliver these solutions to customers. Click on the partner logo below for more information.

Routing

TCP/IP Routing, and IP routers have been ubiquitous for decades, and are the fundamental platform supporting data transport across private WANs and the Internet, and of course in the LAN environment too.

IP Performance's technology specialists and engineers have years of experience and expertise in specifying the correct routing platforms for customer requirements, from the simplest rackmount device to chassis-based systems, and to complex routing mesh topologies.

IP Performance partner with both Juniper Networks and Brocade to offer physical, software-based and virtualised routing solutions. Click on the partner logos below for more information.

SDN

SDN (Software Defined Networking) is a network architecture that decouples the control plane from the data plane, allowing network administrators to control, change and manage network behaviour dynamically using open interfaces (e.g. OpenFlow), and allows the abstraction of lower-level functionality.

First demonstrated in the mid-1990s, SDN has only recently been made available as a commercially-available production solution, mainly because of the wide adoption of desktop, server and network virtualisation. A disruptive technology, it will change the way networks are designed and built.

SSL Offload

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) is an application-level protocol that provides encryption technology for the Internet.

From virtually nothing just a few years ago, it is not uncommon to see 50 to 70 percent of data centre traffic encrypted today. While encryption improves security, it also creates new problems: Malicious traffic could be encrypted, and DPI detection mechanisms would be rendered ineffective because they would not be able to look inside this traffic. Another problem is the additional processing power required by the Web server to achieve this encryption/decryption.

SSL offload relieves a Web server of the processing burden of encrypting and/or decrypting traffic sent via SSL/TLS. The processing is offloaded to a separate device (physical or virtual appliance, or server software) designed specifically to perform SSL acceleration or SSL termination.

Switching

Just as routers have been ubiquitous in the WAN environment for decades, so have switches been in the LAN, and increasingly in the WAN environment. Originally an evolution of Layer 2 bridging (a switch being a bank of bridging ports), switches have climbed the OSI stack and can now offer myriad features, including Layer 3 routing, firewall functionality, DHCP server capabilities and much more.

IP Performance's technology specialists and engineers have years of experience and expertise in specifying the correct switching platforms for customer requirements, from the simplest 12 port rackmount device to chassis-based systems, and to complex distributed switch fabrics.

IP Performance partner with both Juniper Networks and Brocade to offer physical, software-based and virtualised switching solutions. Click on the partner logos below for more information.
