Servers occupy a place in computing similar to that occupied by minicomputers in the past, which they have largely replaced. The typical server is a computer system that operates continuously on a network and waits for requests for services from other computers on the network. Many servers are dedicated to this role, but some may also be used simultaneously for other purposes, particularly when the demands placed upon them as servers are modest.
Platform Symphony is an enterprise-class server platform that delivers low-latency, scaled-out MapReduce workloads. It supports multiple applications running concurrently so that organizations can increase utilization across all resources resulting in a high return on investment.

As virtualization technology evolves and improves, the server performance and power requirements for supporting a virtualized data center increase. Your aging servers are struggling to meet increasing virtual workload demands. These older, lower-performing servers further tax your data center by consuming valuable space and power. You want to update, upgrade, and consolidate to a powerful new server solution that will provide an excellent virtualization platform. In this white paper, you’ll learn how the NEC Express5800/A2040b enterprise server, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4890 v2, offers just that.
We consolidated nine legacy servers into one NEC Express5800/A2040b enterprise server, and proved real benefits of doing so. In this infographic, you’ll learn how the NEC Express5800/A2040b enterprise server, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4890 v2, offers just that.
Without a doubt, performance is the database professional’s number one concern when it comes to virtualizing Microsoft SQL Server. While virtualizing SQL Server is nothing new, even today there are some people who still think that SQL Server is too resource-intensive to virtualize. That’s definitely not the case. However, there are several tips and best practices that you need to follow to achieve optimum performance and availability for your virtual SQL Server instances. In this whitepaper, you’ll learn about the best practices, techniques, and server platform for virtualizing SQL Server to obtain the maximum virtualized database performance.
