Seconds of Delay Have Multi-Million Dollar Consequences, Demand-Driven Control Changes the Game
Principled Technologies deployed VMTurbo’s Demand-Driven Control platform in their virtualized data center. VMTurbo assures application performance while maximizing infrastructure utilization. Principled Technologies implemented VMTurbo’s recommendations in its virtual environment with an OLTP application, and saw significant improvements in performance.
Learn how Principled Technologies achieved a 37% decrease in latency and 23% increase in orders per minute (OPM).
VMware vCloud® Air™ Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand is an infrastructure-as-a-service offering that gives you instant, secure access to the cloud compute resources you need, at any time, with no commitments. There’s no faster way to get up and running with a cloud that is 100% compatible with your VMware vSphere® environment.
This white paper will help you understand how you can achieve end-to-end visibility into application performance no matter where your application or parts of your application are running. You’ll learn what to look for when choosing an application performance monitoring solution and we’ll share some lessons learned about monitoring applications in the cloud.

Data is the fuel of all marketing activities. Customers and prospective buyers are savvy, empowered, and carry high expectations for personalization across all interactions. Without the right data—at the right time—as well as the most effective strategies in place to manage our data sources, our communications and offers are dead on arrival. A one-size-fits-all approach to marketing is not a sound tactic—it’s a marketing fruitcake that no one wants to receive. It’s time to get down with data to delight your audience and provide them with the personal experiences they deserve. Read the marketing essentials guide now.
With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.
What You Need to Know Now About Next-Gen Data Protection & Recovery Architecture
We’ll walk you through the driving forces behind these rapidly evolving data protection architectures, the trends you’ll want to be keeping an eye on, what we should all demand of next generation architectures, and the state of the current market landscape.
The term “perfect storm” is used to describe when several forces come together and create a large, single event that has transformative effects. A technology perfect storm took place in the 1990s when Internet services, low-cost home computers, browsers and affordable broadband all came together and created the Internet revolution. This revolution launched an entirely new economic model that sparked new ways of doing business, changed the way we work, and allowed us to blend our personal and professional lives. At first, these new ways of working were the exception. But the transformation to an Internet-based work style is now complete, and this style has become very much the norm.
Let these case studies show how you can succeed with mobility, too.

More than ever, the data center is a gateway to opportunity, responsible for bringing together the data, applications, and IT resources needed to support growth and innovation. At Cisco we have the opportunity to observe how data center infrastructure is evolving in response to market and technology trends. In no particular order, here are five important strategies we see companies using to overcome the limitations of traditional IT infrastructure and transform their data centers to support innovation and growth.
Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) has evolved to guide the management of data center assets, their environment, and overall operations. In this paper, we discuss how Raritan’s DCIM software can be integrated with existing ITSM software to increase efficiency and reliability.
This Technology Spotlight examines the issues that are driving organizations to replace older archive and backup-and-restore systems with business continuity and always-available solutions that can scale to handle extreme data growth while leveraging a cloudbased pricing model.
This paper will provide guidance for cutting through the fog where it comes to how power and equipment densities vary within a data center and for planning how to handle the varying densities at the data center rack.
This white paper presents and compares the effectiveness of two types of airflow containment systems (legacy and modular), the resultant impact on IT temperatures, the energy consumption and associated operational costs for the data center, and the projected return on investment (ROI) for implementing the containment systems.
This white paper will “follow the money” and show where the power is being used within your data center facility, along with the effects of changes like increasing the overall temperature within your data center.
