One of the pillars of the Virtual Data Center is virtual platform infrastructure, or the virtual machine; however virtual platforms are dependent on many other, oft forgotten components of both the physical and virtual data center.
The stark reality of the data center today is mixed platforms, operating systems and hardware. Fortunately Windows Vista has been engineered to integrate smoothly into these so-called hybrid environments, as you’ll learn in this podcast featuring Microsoft expert Chris Ross.
Automated application quality assurance and testing are fundamental to the delivery of the service levels and managed risks that are essential to delivering business outcomes you can depend on. In this context, CA’s mainframe Application Quality Management and Testing Tools send very strong messages: the tools are being actively developed and, where appropriate, integrated with equivalent tools on the distributed platforms, to help companies deliver holistic, automated, business services.
Business and IT executives should not have to choose between their desire to innovate for future growth and the desire to avoid disrupting current operations. Enterprise innovation that embraces and extends existing infrastructure and applications is possible through modern software architectures such as web services and SOA – as long as those investments perform competitively when measured against alternative platforms and they are able to be modernized to participate in these architectures.
IT groups must support many applications and servers across multiple platforms that frequently operate independently of each other. However, coordinating job scheduling across all these applications and networks is often required to optimize resource utilization. The traditional approach of applying more staff, toolkits, and rudimentary scheduling software to cobble together automated batch processing solutions becomes cost-prohibitive, inefficient, and error-prone, as the number of moving parts increases and the environment becomes more heterogeneous.
With 50+ percent of all business processes leveraging batch operations, it is essential to keep your batch production running smoothly in order to keep your business running smoothly. Whether you are consolidating datacenter operations, moving apps to more cost-effective platforms, or transitioning from customized to packaged applications, learn how you can simplify and lower the cost of batch management with a single interface to all batch processes across platforms and applications and more.
This guide will show you how Code Signing Certificates are used to secure code that can be downloaded from the Internet. You will also learn how these certificates operate with different software platforms.
CA Workload Automation brings a central point of control and visibility to help assure efficient, reliable and secure business process management.

Increasing power demands and space limitations in the data center have begun to transition server virtualization technologies from luxuries to necessities. Server virtualization provides a path toward server consolidation that results in significant power and space savings, while also offering high availability and system portability. Today, vendors are building hardware and software platforms that can deliver virtualization solutions at near-native performance.
Clients setting up smaller offices want to invest in the same type of technology as their larger competitors. Larger clients setting up remote branches need compute power not only at their head office, but also at distributed locations where key decisions that impact the local operation are made.This white paper compares the IBM BladeCenter S offering to the HP c3000 offering and articulates why IBM BladeCenter S is the best choice for small blade chassis platforms.
Traditionally companies had just two choices for their integration needs, complex and expensive platforms like EAI or write custom code. Learn about the "hidden costs" of custom code and discover five reasons why companies are switching to Integration Appliances that use a simple “configuration, not coding” approach to integration.
Traditionally companies had only two choices for integrating SAP solutions, complex and expensive platforms like EAI or write custom code. Integration Appliances offer companies a third option, one that dramatically simplifies and accelerates SAP integration by using a “configuration, not coding” approach to rapidly connect SAP applications with a wide variety of applications, without burdening specialist resources.
Simple voicemail has evolved into complex integrated messaging platforms and the generic black handset has been replaced by a plethora of devices. Service providers can become critical partners for companies looking to ensure availability of their voice network.
This paper explores trends past, current, and future in the mashup space and surveys the types of tools used to build and distribute mashups. The goal is to develop a set of criteria for the reader to use when evaluating mashup platforms for the development of business applications. Where appropriate, analogies to existing technologies and methodologies are employed.
Virtual appliances have recently been gaining notoriety with IT organizations. These pre-packaged ready to deploy instances of an applicationcreated in a virtual machine or environment can provide significant management savings. While they can be a powerful IT tool, not all virtual appliances are created equally.
