Distributed Computing is a programming paradigm focusing on designing distributed, open, scalable, transparent, fault tolerant systems. This paradigm is a natural result of the use of computers to form networks.
Hyperscale infrastructure delivers performance in aggregate and extreme high density. Utilizing commodity off-the-shelf servers, networking, storage and a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach, enterprise IT managers and users react to the rapidly changing trend toward mobile and cloud. This webinar will compare and contrast the DIY and Hyper-convergence approaches.
This paper examines aspects of computing important in HPC and how they are affected by various virtualization technologies. Platform Cluster Manager – Advanced Edition optimizes that environment after jobs have been scheduled and new jobs have been submitted.
IBM Platform HPC Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) tool offers a 3-year total cost of ownership view of your distributed computing environment and savings that you could potentially experience by using IBM Platform HPC in place of competing cluster management software.
Software Defined Networking (SDN) allows organizations to deliver networking with the same level of flexibility and agility as virtualization has allowed them to deliver other parts of their infrastructure. This free webinar will examine current networking architectures at a high level.
Learn how a Cloudant account can be hosted within a multi-tenant Cloudant cluster, or on a single-tenant cluster running on dedicated hardware hosted within a top-tier cloud provider like Rackspace or IBM SoftLayer.
This IDC paper “Business Value of Blade Infrastructures” indicates the considerable cost savings and the improved agility of the IT infrastructure by migrating to an HP BladeSystem environment. In fact, HP BladeSystem cut data costs by 68%. Customers participating in this study were able to pay back their initial investment in just over 7 months, a significant factor given the financial constraints most IT organizations are facing.
Enterprises that adopt a proactive approach to IT resource capacity planning, using the most advanced methods and tools available, are ensuring that their IT environments are right-sized to enable corporate growth and improve company performance.
Though power protection solutions vary in numerous ways, all but the largest data centers use basic approaches when deploying uninterruptible power systems (UPSs): Either they distribute many smaller UPSs among their server racks or they install one or two large UPSs centrally within or near their server room. This white paper outlines each architecure's pros and cons.
In this on-demand video broadcast, hear Nir Zuk, CTO and co-founder of Palo Alto Networks and Rich Mogull, Analyst and CEO of Securosis, provide insights and recommendations on how to handle consumerization and the proliferation of devices.
With impressive performance scalability, the HP ProLiant DL385 G7 and ProLiant BL465c G7 attained outstanding results for two-processor platforms on the two-tier SAP® Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmark.
The white paper points out that it is important to remember that cloud computing is not just about data center technology. It's about streamlining business processes to make organisations and people more strategic and more responsive to change.
There are more people on earth than total IPv4 addresses, and they're expected to run out by the end of 2011. Preparing for the transition now can help you maintain business continuity during the changeover while taking advantage of immediate business benefits.
Unique Express implemented a comprehensive Omnix Transport Solution running on an IBM® System x® server. The end result was a dramatically better management of driver and vehicle resources, saving tens of thousands of dollars per year.
This document discusses the evolution of Ethernet. As a proven leader in delivering Ethernet services, Tata Communications is making a bold, calculated move that positively impact the future of Ethernet and ultimately benefit customers.
The mobile workspace has created problems for IT, including policy enforcement, attack from untrusted wireless networks, and physical data theft. This white paper examines how cloud-based security solutions can protect distributed workers.
This Case Study explores how they installed energy management software and intelligent rack PDUs with outlet-level power monitoring to add remote energy management, power monitoring of individual devices, environmental monitoring, and sophisticated and accurate power usage reports and analytics.
Virtualization presents a tremendous opportunity for IT organizations. Yet deployment involves major process and management complexities.
This white paper outlines best-practice methodologies that help you tackle challenges brought on by virtualization. We also suggest key questions to ask when evaluating a consolidated management solution.
