The future of Networks

What does it hold?

Roundup The Register’s Network Futures workshop is gone, but it should not be forgotten. We have decided to commemorate this important event with a white paper which has most of the best bits in it, free to download.

What did we discover? Your networks are mostly reliable – but under the surface there are many points of stress: virtual servers, video, VoIP, monitoring and management tools are all headaches for some of our readers. And these are the important type of headaches: whatever apps you’re running, whatever your plans for the cloud, you can’t succeed unless your network fabric keeps up with the demand on it.

Our workshop articles, and now this unlimited edition commemorative souvenir, analyses which of these challenges are limiting your ability to do your job, and your employer’s ability to compete. We highlight the steps you should take to remove the constraints both now and in the future, and publish the best of your insightful comments.

If you want to know what we’re writing about, find the workshop here.

And a Regcast here.

But don’t read all of them before you download, or there will be no delicious surprises. Find our white paper here...
