Description

IBM Networking Strategy and Optimization Services — network infrastructure optimization

IBM Networking Strategy and Optimization Services — network infrastructure optimization has three components:

  1. Network infrastructure assessment is designed to help you understand the components that are deployed in your networks and includes reviews of your network designs, devices, and service level agreements, and readiness reviews for deployments or refresh of new technologies.
  2. Network diagnostic assessment is designed to help you with problem determination, problem source identification, and root cause analysis of your network performance problems.
  3. Network performance analysis and capacity planning is designed to help you understand how the performance of your network is being impacted by business applications and background traffic to determine and/or predict the network sizing requirements required to optimize usage by applications.

IBM Networking Strategy and Optimization Services — network application optimization

IBM Networking Strategy and Optimization Services — network application optimization offers you the following activity:

  • Application performance assessment focuses on locating the root causes of application performance issues and provides actionable recommendations to improve that performance. In addition to the assessment of existing applications, the application performance assessment can act as an alternative to what might otherwise be costly trial and error, as it can be a predictor of application performance before new applications or major upgrades move into production. It can also be used to identify application characteristics required to support:
    • Server and/or data center consolidation or relocation
    • WAN redesign
    • Planned application development
