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.

Real World Evidence (RWE) requires the correlation of complex, frequently changing, unstructured data. To the enterprise architect, that means extracting value from data that doesn't neatly fit solutions. In this white paper, we dive into the details of why relational databases are ill-suited to handle the massive volumes of disparate, varied, and changing data that is required to be successful with RWE. It is for this reason that leading life science organizations are going beyond relational to embrace new kinds of databases. And when they do, the results can be dramatic.
