Gigaom Research surveyed technology decision-makers about their use of marketing technologies and their impact on ROI and site operations. We’ll share the results of this survey and review best practices in managing your site’s marketing cloud.
Cooling tends to take a back seat to other concerns when server rooms and small to mid-size data centers are first built. As computing needs grow, increased heat production can compromise equipment performance and cause shutdowns. Haphazard data center expansion creates cooling inefficiencies that magnify these heat-related problems. Users may assume that they need to increase cooling capacity, but this is expensive and often unnecessary. In most cases, low-cost rack cooling best practices will solve heat-related problems. Best practices optimize airflow, increase efficiency, prevent downtime and reduce costs.
This study of 1,300 senior IT decision-makers worldwide proves IT leaders recognize they must change how their organizations work to accelerate time to market, improve software quality, speed application development and meet growing customer demand.
This paper is a high-level outline of how application release operations will change in response to the cloud, and it defines the key ingredients needed to help ensure that your enterprise’s release operations for production applications don’t get left behind.
This paper provides a number of capabilities your organization should look for in a Service Virtualization solution, enabling your extended teams to get high quality applications to market faster, with lower cost and risk
The explosion in mobility and the increasing number of ways to connect with the corporate network has created an IT environment that is increasingly difficult to manage, and that leads to inconsistent user experience. Mobile WAN optimization can help overcome many of the challenges of running a distributed environment by improving the performance of critical enterprise applications, which lowers the cost of effectively supporting mobile workers and eliminates the need for many organizations to pursue expensive strategies and upgrades.
SDN deployment is not a matter of if but when—is your data center ready? This new eGuide reveals how to maximize the value of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).
This whitepaper explores the reasons behind changing traditional desktop computing strategies, why cloud-hosted virtual desktops are a compelling solution for many businesses and how to leverage cliud-hosted desktops for windows 7 migrations, mobile and departmental workers, and disaster recovery scenarios.
This white paper will deliver data that provides valuable information based on real compute scenarios to assist buyers of cloud services in understanding how their workloads might perform and what costs are associated with those environments across multiple cloud computing platforms BEFORE they invest in the selection of a cloud computing provider.
One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization.
In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure
and processes to better meet business needs.
Virtualizing with Microsoft Hyper-V allows you to control and cut costs while improving the scalability, flexibility, and reach of your IT systems. HP and Microsoft have joined together to create a portfolio of virtualization solutions designed for the needs of a growing businesses like yours. HP Flex-Bundles for Microsoft® Hyper-V are pre-defined, affordable configurations that combine the world’s most intelligent servers—HP ProLiant Gen8—with HP software, storage, networking, and Microsoft software to get you started and keep your business moving in your virtualization journey.
To accomplish this mission, you need an infrastructure platform that can be highly optimized for today’s and tomorrow’s virtualized workloads to provide operational simplicity that allows you to move at the speed of business.
Unfortunately, a traditional infrastructure won’t get you there. A siloed environment requires too many tools and manual processes, which creates unnecessary complexity. That complexity, in turn, causes downtime, slows service delivery, and drains your IT staff productivity.
Now, more than ever, your IT managers are under enormous pressure to deliver applications and services that innovate and transform your business. You’re being asked to deliver a data center defined by lower costs, rapid time to value, and rock-solid reliability. To accomplish this mission, you need an infrastructure platform that can be highly optimized for today’s and tomorrow’s virtualized workloads to provide operational simplicity that allows you to move at the speed of business.
