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 Outdated servers can be inefficient to run and more expensive to maintain.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.
Detects vulnerabilities throughout your infrastructure by scanning network devices, servers, web applications and databases, helps assess your security posture and provides remediation steps to help reduce risk and security operations costs.
Companies continue to look for ways to reduce operating costs. As a result, they are turning to outsourced IT service providers more than ever. The growth in IT outsourcing of infrastructure management presents a great opportunity for solution providers.

“The network is your business” has been a mantra for many years indicating how businesses rely more heavily on being networked between their facilities, data centers, suppliers, business partners and customers. Your network enables your business to:
• Improve productivity
• Provide business continuity
• Increase customer satisfaction
• Reduce costs
A cloud-based approach with a Platform as a Service
(PaaS) platform that empowers you with the capability
to rapidly develop applications can help unleash your developer
productivity and creativity while delighting your customers
In fact, recent industry research supports this claim by showing
that 93 percent of the organizations that adopted a PaaS
approach experienced improvement of development whereas
95 percent saw improvement in overall deployment of new
applications. More than 50 percent experienced reduced
To out-innovate and out-pace their competition, organizations must be on a consistent path to keep their infrastructure
modern. IT is under constant pressure to deliver optimized infrastructure for new business initiatives and supporting
applications all while trying to contain or even reduce costs. In fact, respondents to ESG’s ongoing research consistently
cite cost reduction as one of the top business drivers affecting their IT spending. When asked in a research survey how
their organizations intended to contain costs in 2017, 27% of respondents said that they would be purchasing new
technologies with better ROI.
Since Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) emerged as a breakthrough technology, it has continued to gain taction as it has truly delivered on its promise. It has helped organizations optimize resources, reduce complexity, lower costs, increase agility and accelerate development cycles, as well as provide a seamless path to hybrid cloud. These are just a few of the key benefits causing IT leaders pay close attention to HCI and look at ways to use it to power key initiatives such as digital transformation.
As IT leaders continue to embrace HCI and the market is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 42% through 2023, the future is happening now.

The implications of AI’s unique approach are profound: AI can learn by example rather than through brute-force programming; can understand human intention and emotions and act accordingly; and can handle extraordinarily complex relationships of data that are beyond the capability of human analysts working alone.
AI can multiply what we currently do and take us to experiences we’ve never had before, at a speed and scale that will change entire industries. In these case studies, we’re pleased to present a range of real-world examples to guide your imagination. Here, you’ll find situations where companies like yours found AI to be part of the solution. These examples show how AI can enhance an existing application, workflow or process and reduce friction.
