HTML-5; enabling the next generation of the user workspace
“Striving to improve the experience of the user workspace, by reducing the hardware and software footprint of the end-user device, whilst maintaining flexibility, agility and security, is a benefit to both the consumer and organisation” explains Peter White,  Enterprise Architect at GlassHouse Technologies (UK)

What is it?

Peter thinks that HTML-5 is the latest evolving (non-proprietary) standards based of Hypertext Mark-up Language (HTML), the long awaited successor to the ageing HTML 4.01 standard of 1999, that consists of the following core components:

 

  • HTML: providing page definition and structure
  • JavaScript: providing core functionality
  • Cascading Style Sheets:  providing content presentation

 

Note: additional dependencies exist for a successful implementation of services deployed within the HTML-5 framework; including development suites, operating system or pre-Browser runtime environment.

                                      

What are the benefits?

The potential benefits to organisations looking to refresh or transform their WorkSpace environments are only limited to vision and development of architects, developers and future browser support; however Peter White believes the following to be key to its successful longevity:


 

  • World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) defined standard
  • No (or reduced) browser plug-ins or additional software agents required; supporting;
    • Application delivery
    • Multimedia delivery
    • Legacy desktop delivery
  • Simplify application and data access
  • Browser only access devices
  • Customisable collaboration environment; for data, applications, static and user specific content
  • Browser and page integration / inter-operability; between virtual instances
  • Standard development environment and tool integration
  • Cloud ready; for “as a Service” service offerings
  • Reduction in endpoint procurement and operational costs
  • Reduction in WorkSpace technology refresh / deployment costs


 

What are the use cases?

The use-cases GlassHouse Technologies envisages within WorkSpace environments include the following possibilities:


 

  • WorkSpace Operating Environment
  • Direct application data access / presentation
  • Centralised application presentation; virtual application, server based computing, Software-as-a-Service
  • Legacy desktop operating system based access; virtual desktop, server based computing, Desktop-as-a-Service
  • Virtual peripheral support
  • Multimedia Presentation
  • Standards based multimedia presentation; including the following
  • Conferencing capability; voice, IP telephony, video
  • Remote access; desktop and application sharing
  • Remote training, education services
  • Embedded Endpoint Content
  • Active content presentation to the access device’s operating system
  • Active content presentation as the access device’s user interface; direct data and application access from the endpoint
  • Multi-Environment Support
  • Consistent multi-platform support; desktop, thin-client, laptop, ultra-book, netbook, tablet, smart-phones, smart-TVs and Mac
  • Multi-browser support; Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera, Android's
  • Consistent presentation within a multi-platform and multi-browser environments; including the Internet, consumer and corporate

 

 

Pros

  • “It does whatever you want it to do!”
  • Cloud ready
  • Multi-platform (browser) support
  • Many software vendors’ and service providers’ roadmaps include a transformation plan to HTML-5; including:
    • Citrix – August 2012
    • VMware – August 2013
    • Ericom – now, limited to RDP
    • Guacamole – now, limited to RDP
  • Non-royalty based development
  • Anywhere, any device access; dependent on security policies
  • Web page annotation and description
  • Improved coding capability; with rapid development life-cycle

 

Cons

  • Evolving standard, that will change in its development
  • Not all Browsers are equal; no single vendor supports the current standard
  • Endpoint environments have to be using a compliant HTML-5 browser; and may require a Browser specific to functionality requirements
  • Not 100% code compatible to its predecessor HMTL 4.01; for porting code and redevelopment

 

 

 

Ericom:

  • Zero Client Software! No need to install: Flash, Silverlight, ActiveX or any other underlying technology on the end-user device 
  • Access and control your desktop from anywhere! Use any HTML-5 enabled Device! Smartphones, Tablets including iPad, iPhone, Android devices, locked-down work stations and from computers running Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Chrome OS.

  • Supports the latest bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives 
  • Ericom's HTML-5 client integrates with leading enterprise and home grown portals

Citrix:

  • Google Chrome (version 19+) & Mozilla Firefox (version 11+) browsers on Windows and Mac desktops
  • In-session Tool bar that can move and close
  • Copy/Paste text
  • Key to send Ctrl+Alt+Del to desktop session
  • External access of XenApp applications and XenDesktop via Access Gateway
  • Direct internal access of XenApp applications
  • Performance enhancements
  • Storefront integration

Guacamole:

  • Guacamole provides access to desktop environments using remote desktop protocols like VNC and RDP. A centralized server acts as a tunnel and proxy, allowing access to multiple desktops through a web browser.
  • No browser plugins are needed, and no client software needs to be installed. The client requires nothing more than a web browser supporting HTML-5 and AJAX.

VMware:

  • Currently available using Ericom’s AccessNow
  • VMware Horizon Desktop!

 

Peter White, Enterprise Architect at GlassHouse Technologies (UK) believes that HTML-5 will drive the next generation of online desktops, applications and data access; meeting the expectations and demands of the commercial and consumer, with a less-complex but improved delivery mechanism.

Enabling Multi-tenancy within Enterprise IT Operations

Multi-tenancy is a well understood term in cloud and carrier environments where multiple customers serve as tenants over a common infrastructure. However, the notion of multi-tenancy, the associated SLAs for each tenant, and the ability to virtualize the underlying infrastructure to isolate individual tenants, is quicklymaking its way into enterprise IT operations. Today, enterprise IT organizations have multiple departments such as security, networking, applications, among others. Each department is increasingly being held to stringent requirements for ensuring network and application availability, responsiveness, and a good user experience. This is leading to an increasing reliance on various classes of tools that provide the ability to monitor and manage the applications, network, security, as well as user experience.  Many of these tools leverage Gigamon’s Visibility Fabric™ for optimal delivery of traffic from across physical and virtual networks to these tools. As departments are increasingly held to their own SLAs and KPIs, they need to be able to autonomously carve out traffic delivery to the departmental tools, as well as independently configure, manage, and adapt traffic flows to the departmental tools without impacting other departmental traffic flows. And they need to be able to do all of this over a common underlying Visibility Fabric, which leads to a model where the Visibility Fabric needs to support a true multi-tenant environment.

With the GigaVUE H Series 3.1 software release, Gigamon introduces several enhancements to the Visibility Fabric that enable multi-tenancy and enable IT departments to optimize their workflows, reduce workflow provisioning times and provide for both privacy as well as collaboration among departments when it comes to their monitoring infrastructure.

There are three key aspects to these new capabilities.

  1. Enabling departments to carve out their own slice of the Visibility Fabric using an intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) that supports the workflow required for multi-tenancy. Empowering multiple tenants to apportion the Visibility Fabric each with their own access rights, sharing privileges and their traffic flows, through a drag and drop GUI-based model is a key step towards simplifying the provisioning model in a multi-tenant environment. Moving away from a CLI based approach to a GUI based approach is a key step towards improving workflows across departmental silos.
  2. Advancing Gigamon’s patented Flow Mapping® technology within the Visibility Fabric Nodes to support multi-tenancy whereby each tenant can carve out their own Flow Maps, ports, and actions, without impacting the traffic flows associated with other tenants. This is a significant architectural advancement that builds on Gigamon’s existing Flow Mapping technology to provision resources within the underlying visibility nodes based on the department’s (or tenant’s) requirements.
  3. Providing role based access control (RBAC) so that departmental users can work both collaboratively as well as privately over the common underlying Visibility Fabric.

These capabilities represent a significant advancement in how IT operations can take advantage of the Visibility Fabric to rapidly deploy new tools, enable real time or near real time tuning of the Visibility Fabric and better meet their individual SLAs and KPIs. Taken together, these key capabilities empower IT organizations to provide Visibility as a Service to their various departments.

For more information, please see the Visibility as a Service Solutions Overview.

Juniper Networks Unveils the Worlds Most Programmable Core Switch to Support Emerging Applications and Growing Workloads
Juniper Networks Unveils the Worlds Most Programmable Core Switch to Support Emerging Applications and Growing Workloads

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2013) - Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today unveiled three new products designed to boost business agility and simplify network management. A massive spike in BYOD, mobile users and new enterprise application deployments has created network congestion and complexity. Compounded with the challenge of contracting IT budgets, these trends have severely restricted ITs ability to quickly respond and maintain network reliability.

Many enterprises use single purpose legacy infrastructures, built in silos and defined by their location in the enterprise, that cant keep pace with rapid changes in compute, storage and application requirements and often inhibit service delivery. In order to maximize delivery and availability of next-generation cloud services, server virtualization and rich media applications, Juniper introduces a new agile, programmable network. This will enable network operators to respond to business changes and monitor and react to how the network meets application service level agreement (SLA) requirements in a matter of seconds, not days or weeks.

Juniper Networks has addressed these challenges with a series of new products for enterprise campus and data center infrastructures. The new Juniper Networks® EX9200 Programmable Switch enables accelerated response to changing business needs, while its built-in ability to support a virtual WLAN controller, the Juniper Networks JunosV Wireless LAN Controller, will deliver high levels of reliability and flexibility across the enterprise to lower capital expense. The Junos® Space Network Director provides a single-pane-of-glass network management solution for wired and wireless LANs and data centers, consolidating multiple management tools to simplify network operations and deliver a comprehensive advanced platform that prepares enterprises for tomorrows applications, services and workload demands.

News Highlights

Industry Leading Programmability - To prepare enterprise campuses and data centers for new technologies and business requirements, the EX9200 provides the industrys highest level of programmability required for emerging applications and environments. Built upon the Juniper One Programmable ASIC, the EX9200 prepares enterprises for emerging Software-Defined Networking (SDN) protocols, allowing for network automation and interoperability without the need for additional hardware. This eliminates cost, complexity and time delays from line card upgrades or new infrastructure deployments, empowering enterprises to be more nimble and efficient. In enterprise campus and data center deployments, the EX9200 Virtual Chassis technology simplifies the network architecture, reducing network devices and layers of up to fifty percent. The EX9200 will ship with 1/10/40GbE interfaces and it is scheduled to deliver 100GbE performance this year. As with other next-generation offerings from Juniper Networks, the company will provide a Getting Started program to enable enterprises to evolve from their current infrastructure to the EX9200 platform.

Wireless LAN Controller Delivered as a Service for the Enterprise - Addressing the need to support the growing trend of BYOD and seamless integration between wired and wireless networks, Juniper Networks is the only vendor to deliver a flexible virtual WLAN controller designed to run on any combination of physical appliances, on a virtual machine (VM), or directly on Juniper Networks switches (future). Juniper has made wireless controller functionality a service on the network while offering consistent, industry-leading capabilities such as controller clustering, in-service software upgrades, self-organizing adds, moves and changes, and local switching across the portfolio. At the same time, none of these implementations is tied to a specific location within the enterprise. This simplifies network deployments, increases flexibility, reduces costs with a pay-as-you-grow model and delivers high reliability for wired and wireless networks. Enterprises dont need to have multiple islands of networks within their infrastructure and can instead have a common, unified end-to-end network for user access -- whether its wired or wireless.

Managing the Network from a Single Pane - Increasing network complexity makes network behavior unpredictable and difficult to forecast the effects of network changes. Junos Space Network Director, a single campus-to-data center management tool, provides a holistic view into the enterprise network. By administering the wired and wireless infrastructure, users, applications, and services from a central location, Junos Space Network Director accelerates application deployment time and reduces complexity and operational expenditures. What has previously been delivered as three to four different management tools can now be consolidated into a single application.

Innovation and Collaboration: The Way Forward to Counter Cyber Threats
Innovation and Collaboration: The Way Forward to Counter Cyber Threats

Cybersecurity has played a particularly prominent role in the news recently, and policymakers ranging from members of Congress to the President are advancing policies to address the significant risks we face as a nation and a people. Critical infrastructure is of particular concern, and the intrusions evolve on a daily basis. In a threat environment that is ever-changing, there is no room for false starts or approaches that slow response time or redirect limited resources. It is important to keep focus on the most effective ways to mitigate the cyber risk.

Juniper Networks Breaks New Ground With Worlds Smallest Supercore and Industrys Densest 100G Optical Routing Interface
Juniper Networks Breaks New Ground With Worlds Smallest Supercore and Industrys Densest 100G Optical Routing Interface

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 18, 2013) - (OFC/NFOEC) -- Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today unveiled two new products designed to address key challenges facing service providers as they converge their networks to optimize their business.

First, Juniper Networks has advanced the industrys first and only Converged Supercore™ for service providers with the introduction of the Juniper Networks® PTX3000 Packet Transport Router. Unlike other core routers that are so large that they often require building retrofits and redesigns, the new Juniper Networks router at 10.6 inches in depth can be installed in virtually any space and energy constrained environment. The PTX3000 routers capacity is designed to rapidly scale over time up to 24 terabits per second (Tbps), enabling PTX3000 to simultaneously stream high-definition video to as many as three million households.

In addition, Juniper Networks announced an integrated packet-transport physical interface card (PIC) with two-ports of line rate 100 Gigabit forwarding for the entire PTX family, which will now enable service providers to cost-effectively interconnect sites more than 2000 kilometers (1243 miles) apart, the equivalent distance between San Francisco, Calif. and Denver, Colo.

News Highlights

Reshaping Optical Core Routing: The PTX3000 breaks the mold for core routers shipping at almost 4Tbps in capacity, scaling up to 24 Tbps of total capacity and a mere 10.6 inches deep -- approximately the length of an Apple iPad. The PTX3000 Packet Transport Router provides network operators with groundbreaking size, performance and efficiency, addressing practical barriers that service providers face in upgrading networks today. The router follows Junipers 2011 introduction of the worlds first Converged Supercore, a new architecture to bring together the packet and transport worlds, and addresses the scale and flexibility challenges that todays service providers face. With the PTX3000, Juniper has redefined the upgrade so that one technician can manually hand-carry and install a PTX3000 within a matter of minutes versus hours. Industrys Lowest Power Footprint: With a simplified architecture, the PTX Series allows network operators to converge their networks from nationwide backbones down to the metro core, driving significant operational efficiencies. Junipers approach collapses the traditional core architecture to deliver unprecedented scale at the lowest power footprint in the industry at less than one watt per Gigabit. PTX3000 customers can get started with a minimum configuration of as little as 1200 watts and a single power feed -- allowing smaller operators in space and power-constrained environments to be up and running quickly, while realizing all the benefits of the Converged Supercore. Rapid Service Expansion at a Fraction of the Cost: Powered by the purpose-built Junos® Express chipset and the proven reliability of the Junos operating system, the Juniper Networks PTX Series Packet Transport Router can scale for years to come, allowing operators to deliver mobile services to millions of subscribers at a cost savings of up to 65 percent over legacy architectures. No Compromise of Performance and Scale: The PTX Series delivers unmatched efficiency, wire-rate performance on all ports simultaneously, even for the smallest packet sizes, and by far the industrys lowest latency while at the same time reducing the cost of network ownership. Resetting the Density Bar for 100G Optical: Designed to cost-effectively interconnect long-haul metro sites, the integrated packet-transport 100G DWDM OTN interface card offers the industrys highest density 100G optical routing capabilities for use in open, standard-based architectures. It effectively reduces network complexity and offers transport performance with packet advantages. The new optical PIC also delivers the flexibility to operate across the entire PTX Series.

The PTX Series, in combination with the T Series Core Routers, the MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers, the ACX Series Universal Access Routers and Junos Space Network Management deliver a unique architecture for the future of service provider networks, promoting long-term investment protection by flexibly scaling total capacity to meet ever-increasing consumer and business traffic.

Infonetics Research
Traffic patterns in metro networks are rising at such a high rate that requirements in the IP metro core are similar to those of previous IP backbone core networks. The PTX3000 Packet Transport Router has clearly achieved a new packaging density for core routers, with capacity to scale up to 24 Tbps in an energy efficient, 1/2 rack, 300mm ETSI form factor. We expect that these characteristics will draw the consideration of service providers as they redesign their metro networks for the future.

What’s so big in a small Supercore?
What’s so big in a small Supercore?

With much of the recent hype on larger density routers, many seem intrigued by the buzz around a small Supercore router, the PTX3000. Admittedly, it is the world’s most compact core router. But, isn’t traffic continuing to explode at double digit rates? And what is so “Super” about a 3.84 Tbps system?
