But companies seeking to deliver critical business information over frame relay circuits need a guarantee of network performance for those circuits. Monitoring and controlling the performance and reliability of public-network circuits depends greatly on SLAs (service-level agreements) between companies and service providers and monitoring of the agreements.

SLAs are contracts that define the service levels expected from a service provider and the penalties imposed if the service provider does not comply. These SLAs’ main purpose is to help keep conflicts between companies and service providers to a minimum by setting reasonable expectations of service.

raid-arrayTo lose information from a computer system may be a damning experience. This can be very traumatising in the event that the particular information were to be used in the workplace.

Many companies are fighting back the rising tide of total cost of ownership with comprehensive network management systems that can manage everything from a central location.

There are many factors to be considered when purchasing and implementing these systems, which range from management framework products, such as Hewlett-Packard Co.’s OpenView, Computer Associates International Inc.’s Unicenter and Tivoli Systems Inc.’s NetView, to sophisticated trouble-reporting systems, such as Tivoli’s TME, to router configuration programs such as Cisco Systems Inc.’s NetSys.

Do you need RAID 10 recovery services for your RAID servers that have gone berserk?

Professional developers will not want to miss the OS/2 Professional Developer’s Kit, a bevy of pre-release and available OS/2 products. Although the package is unpolished and somewhat disorganized, the $15 investment easily justifies a peek at the future of OS/2 development.

IBM’s OS/2 Professional Developer’s Kit (PDK) contains a gold mine of development tools and reference materials on one relatively convenient CD ROM. This is a boon, says Harriet Nilsson, IT Manager at Rioworks, a computer hardware provider.

The product’s highlights include a beta version of the next release of OS/2, finally installable largely from the CD ROM; beta-level upgrades of the IBM C Set/2 compiler and other development tools; a variety of networking products, including a beta version of LAN Server 3.0; a wealth of on-line technical documentation for OS/2 developers; and Windows 3.1 support.

To have great security, you need to assemble an elite group of security experts — what we call a patch patrol — to locate, test, and install software patches in any system that may have a weakness. Don’t treat this as drudge work and assign your least capable programmers to the task. They will not be able to do the job. Fund this team adequately and give them the tools they need to succeed.

net-secNow set your patch patrol in motion. They should begin by checking the vast array of independent and vendor-supported security Web sites, newsgroups, and mailing lists that have sprung up in recent years. Continuous monitoring of these sites will not only help educate your team and improve their skills, it will also provide an early warning of new and dangerous hacker exploits. Monitoring vendor Web sites
