A computer Cluster is a group of loosely coupled computers that work together closely so that in many respects they can be viewed as though they are a single computer. The components of a cluster are commonly, but not always, connected to each other through fast local area networks.
This book examines data storage and management challenges and explains software-defined storage, an innovative solution for high-performance, cost-effective storage using the IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS).
High-performance computing (HPC) continues to transform capabilities of organizations across a range of industries, whether the Human Genome Project or aerodynamics testing for race cars, we demonstrate how IBM Platform Computing solutions offer effective ways to unleash the power of HPC.
This report defines storage-centric virtualized infrastructure, its opportunity and use cases, and the emerging vendor landscape that IT infrastructure and operations groups should evaluate as they purse the software-defined data center.
This document makes recommendations for the design, optimization and scaling of VMware Horizon Workspace and Horizon View deployments on Nutanix. It shows the scalability of the Nutanix Complete Cluster and provides detailed performance and configuration information on the scale-out capabilities of the cluster when leveraged for Horizon deployments.
Extensive testing has been performed in collaboration with VMware to simulate real real-world workload and conditions of operating a Horizon Workspace environment. Sizing and recommendations have been made after multiple testing iterations and joint validation.
The solution and testing provided in this document was completed with VMware Horizon Workspace deployed on VMware vSphere on the Nutanix Complete Cluster.
Blade servers can yield significant cost efficiencies over rack servers — while taking up a smaller footprint, consuming less power and providing significant advantages in terms of manageability, scalability and flexibility.
Savvy IT professionals are finding that blade servers are less expensive than traditional rack servers for most new deployments, while also delivering improvements in agility, scalability and manageability.

The report outlines the benefits of using HP StoreOnce with NetBackup's integrated Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) backup capabilities to enhance administrators' abilities to effectively manage NDMP-enabled NAS server backup and recovery.
Evaluator Group worked with HP to access the features, performance and enterprise capabilities of the HP StoreOnce B6200 Backup system. HP labs and equipment were utilized, with testing under the direction of on-site Evaluator Group personnel. Testing focused on validating high availability features, performance, and application integration.
Enterprise Strategy Group shares why client-side deduplication is the best. Dedupe 2.0 leverages intelligence and awareness at the source, backup server, and storage device. In these scenarios, the awareness of what data is already in the deduplicated storage and the discernment to send new data or not is performed within the production server instead of the backup server or deduplicated storage. Hence, network savings begin at the production server and backups are significantly faster since only changed data is transmitted from the production server to the storage solution.
Is data changing the way you do business?Is it inventory sitting in your warehouse? The good news is data-driven applications enhance online customer experiences, leading to higher customer satisfaction and retention, and increased purchasing.
Today, as IT departments struggle to design and implement solutions capable of managing exponential data growth with strict requirements for application scale and performance, many
of them are turning to in-memory data grids (IMDGs).
