How about going old school for this year's tournament? No, not short shorts and Chuck Taylors, we're talking about rolling out the flat screens into central viewing areas and watching the network broadcast on televisions. This saves the bandwidth and creates a fun and collegial atmosphere along the way.

NCAA March Madness has become an unofficial holiday of sorts, but for many in IT, the process of ensuring system uptime is no game. Last year, March Madness Live delivered an unprecedented 64 million live video streams, which netted out to about 13.5 million hours of live video consumption. With many of the first and second round games occurring during business hours, it's safe to say that this type of traffic can cause serious issues on any corporate network and understanding how to properly prepare for it is crucial.

In this slideshow, Ipswitch, an IT tools software provider, highlights eight steps every IT team should be taking to ensure system uptime during March Madness.
