As virtualization technology evolves and improves, the server performance and power requirements for supporting a virtualized data center increase. Aging servers struggle to meet increasing virtual workload demands and tax your data center by consuming valuable space and power. Principled Technologies compared the performance of the new NEC Express5800/A2040b to an older HP ProLiant DL385 G6 as a representative legacy server. This lab validated report details how many legacy database servers the NEC Express5800/A2040b could consolidate and the amount of space and power it saved, while maintaining steady performance within the hosted VMs.
Without a doubt, performance is the database professional's number one concern when it comes to virtualizing Microsoft SQL Server. While virtualizing SQL Server is nothing new, even today there are some people who still think that SQL Server is too resource-intensive to virtualize. That's definitely not the case. However, there are several tips and best practices that you need to follow to achieve optimum performance and availability for your virtual SQL Server instances. In this whitepaper, you'll learn about best practices, techniques, and server platform for virtualizing SQL Server to obtain the maximum virtualized database performance.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for any database-driven project begins with licensing. As database products have become more sophisticated, so has the licensing that enables users. Where customers once purchased a database license for a specific number of users, increases in capability, power and complexity moved the industry to a per-processor pricing structure.

Multi-tenancy is a key feature of Workday and enables multiple customers to share one physical instance of the Workday system in a highly secure environment. Multi-tenancy is enabled through the Workday Object Management Server (OMS). Workday OMS allows servers to host multiple customer tenants simultaneously and builds “security walls” between each of the tenants. Thanks to Workday OMS, there is no way for any worker in one tenant to access the information of another tenant.
Workday delivers its software using a continuous development model. Builds are rolled out weekly that contain new features, bug fixes, or performance improvements. Twice a year, Workday takes all the features put into preview and releases them to production for all customers. Workday customers are never landlocked on an old release, and all customers can utilize new features for the products they purchased as soon as they are live.
The growth of virtualization has fundamentally changed the data center and raised numerous questions about data security and privacy. In fact, security concerns are the largest barrier to cloud adoption. Read this e-Book and learn how to protect sensitive data and demonstrate compliance.
Virtualization is the creation of a logical rather than an actual physical version of something. such as a storage device, hardware platform, operating system, database or network resource. The usual goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving resilience, scalability and performance and lowering costs. Virtualization is part of an overall trend in enterprise IT towards autonomic computing, a scenario in which the IT environment will be able to manage itself based on an activity or set of activities. This means organizations use or pay for computing resources only as they need them.
IBM Compose Enterprise delivers a fully managed cloud data platform on the public cloud of your choice - including IBM SoftLayer or Amazon Web Services (AWS) - so you can run MongoDB, Redis, Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL, RethinkDB, RabbitMQ and etcd in dedicated data clusters.
You’ve taken the first step and already know that a document- oriented database is the right database for your application. From here, you still have to decide where and how you’ll deploy the software and its associated infrastructure. These decisions lead to additional considerations around administrative overhead, technical support, open-source options, data sovereignty and security, and more. This paper aims to outline the deployment options available when you select IBM® Cloudant® as your JSON store.
This paper presents a cost/benefit case for two leading enterprise database contenders -- IBM DB2 11.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (DB2 11.1 LUW) and Oracle Database 12c -- with regard to delivering effective security capabilities, high-performance OLTP capacity and throughput, and efficient systems configuration and management automation. Comparisons are of database installations in the telecommunications, healthcare, and consumer banking industries. For OLTP workloads in these environments, three-year costs average 32 percent less for use of DB2 11.1 compared to Oracle 12c.

IBM QRadar and BigFix solutions empower IT security teams to view, prioritize and respond to endpoint intelligence in near real time.
How can an organization stay ahead of these advanced security threats? Maintaining a high level of baseline security by consistently enforcing security policies and patch levels on endpoints and servers is definitely required and important. But when networks can have multiple vulnerabilities per IP address at scan time, the slow process of mitigating and patching these weaknesses can result in dangerous security gaps. Today’s IT personnel have to make difficult, risk-based decisions on where to focus their efforts—often without having a complete picture of the security environment. This is even more critical when the number of vulnerabilities across the organization is increasing while the organization has limited resources and skills to fix the vulnerabilities.
