Efficient utilization of shared compute, storage, and networking resources is essential in today’s virtualized data center. VMware estimates that server virtualization has reduced CapEx and OpEx costs by 40-60% in most companies. That’s real value, but is only fully realizable with the right hardware that allows Enterprise IT administrators and Managed Service Providers to leverage compute and capacity resources wherever they are available. QLogic has the answer.
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 Outdated servers can be inefficient to run and more expensive to maintain.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.

The evolution of enterprise IT has finally reached the point where mid-size companies can cost effectively exploit the benefits of fully virtualized cloud operations and large and mid-size companies alike can greatly reduce the costs of expanding already virtualized infrastructures.
The linchpin to this transformation is Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) technology. HCI overcomes barriers such as the need to invest in large blocks of disparate compute and storage facilities that have prevented many mid-size enterprises from reaping the benefits of cloud-based operations which is to say the orchestration of virtualized data center resources across multiple workflows.
Being asked to "do more with less" has become standing operating procedure in business and government. Today, it is a generally accepted fact that finding innovative ways to reduce costs and extend the life of capital investments is an expectation. An area to explore in achieving these objectives is service/support/maintenance for servers, storage, routers and switches. While OEM maintenance is the default position for new equipment, there are significant aspects to consider for service beyond the expiration of initial agreements. This document provides an overview of critical aspects to take into account concerning OEM service and the value and benefits of third-party, multi-vendor service and support.
AMD has an extensive history of leadership in the thin client market, contributing to solutions that help provide reduced operating costs and power consumption, higher durability and increased longevity over personal computers. AMD helps to provide faster, high-definition video and graphics overlays, an enhanced Internet experience, widely scalable platform performance, and industry-leading display support. By employing AMD Embedded Accelerated Processing Unit (APUs) in Dell Wyse clients that incorporate a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and a Central Processing Unit (CPU) onto one die, Dell Wyse clients have the added benefit of improved data transfer rates, and space savings on the motherboard, allowing for the creation of smaller, more powerful devices.
The IBM BladeCenter HX5 is a scalable, high-performance blade server with unprecedented performance, and the flexibility needed for database and virtualized applications. According to recent benchmark results, the HX5 has achieved an overall performance score that is up to 18% better than the competition. In this paper, you'll learn how IBM achieved their impressive scores and how clients can consolidate their datacenter on HX5 to increase utilization, simplify systems management and reduce operating costs.
This paper highlights new IBM servers and blades based on Intel Xeon 5600 Series processors and how they enable outstanding virtualization/consolidation. They allow you to lower TCO, reduce development costs, and increase performance within the same energy/cooling envelope.

Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo
Websites provide online businesses with an unprecedented level of contact with customers and end users. However, they also place business information where it can be easily accessed by third parties – often using automated tools known as “bots”. For many organizations, bots represent up to 50% or more of their overall website traffic, from good bots engaged in essential business tasks to bad bots conducting fraudulent activities. Regardless of business impact, bot traffic can reduce website performance for legitimate users and increase IT costs. Organizations need a flexible framework to better manage their interaction with different categories of bots and the impact that bots have on their business and IT infrastructure.
The notion of digitizing your business has become a matter of “when,” rather than “if.” For many, migrating critical workloads to the cloud is a key part of this transformation. When deciding on a cloud provider, however, IT executives are under pressure to find a solution that enables reduced costs, greater agility, and above all, the ability to innovate core business processes.
At the heart of many businesses embarking on this journey is their SAP environment. But since SAP workloads represent some of the most critical and deeply integrated business applications, IT executives are required to look for ways to execute this migration in the most timely and reliable manner. Organizations migrating to the cloud cannot risk application downtime or productivity loss.
