Just about everyone has heard stories extolling the benefits of cloud computing and virtualization, the twin forces behind the transformation of the way companies of all shapes and sizes “do” computing. But to take part in this information revolution, it’s critical to have the right underpinnings.
That means not only upgrading the decade-old Windows Server 2003 operating system software that still drives more than 12 million servers, but also upgrading the underlying hardware to ensure you realize all the benefits the software can deliver. The combination of Windows Server 2012 and the latest Intel® Xeon®-based server hardware should be part of an IT strategy for companies and departments looking to modernize their IT infrastructure. This checklist will identify 10 of the top issues driving the need for server OS software and hardware upgrades.
If you are running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 on older hardware, you're running 10 year old technology. Outdated servers can be inefficient to run and more expensive to maintain.
Reduce your costs and plan for an additional capacity taking advantage of the power efficiency of Lenovo ThinkServer with Intel Xeon Processors and Intel Intelligent Power Technology enhancements on Windows Server 2012.
Imagine starting your day with a service call to restore your e-mail, or losing all of your customer billing data just before closing up for the night. Server technology offers business-class features to help you avoid these scenarios. Given the similar price points between a desktop and the Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 system, why not run your applications on a ThinkServer?
The latest major release of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 has numerous technical advances, but it is also focused on providing the foundation for helping businesses achieve success. This white paper will examine the key benefits that can be used to lower costs, increase security and improve the "speed of solution" in ways that are not possible in older versions.
