VMware vSAN is enterprise-class, vSphere-native storage that powers more hyper-converged infrastructure solutions than any other vendor. vSAN accelerates and simplifies the data center modernization journey by helping you evolve your infrastructure without risk, reduce TCO through simplified operations and server economics, and scale to tomorrow’s business needs with an agile, cloud-ready platform. As the only vSphere-native storage platform, vSAN naturally extends virtualization to storage, creating a hyperconverged solution that simply works with existing tools, skill sets, software solutions, and server platforms. The result is an agile IT environment ready for dynamic business needs.
VMware solutions help customers meet their energy saving goals by enabling safe consolidation of underutilized x86 desktops and servers onto less hardware, both through initial consolidation efforts and dynamically as computing requirements change. This white paper explains how VMware virtualization provides the foundation for dramatically more energy efficient IT environments.
Radiator Express Warehouse (1800Radiator), a fast-growing automotive parts distributor, found that it was running at maximum power and its racks were full. Using VMware virtualization technology, the company was able to take 31 physical servers out of production, resulting in a 25 percent reduction in power and cooling costs.
This white paper examines how the versatile design of the Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 along with powerful, bundled virtualization capabilities makes it an ideal platform for consolidating enterprise servers and workloads and deploying apps.
Despite its six syllables, 'virtualization' is a straight - forward concept. It can enable your organization to get more value not only from computer and storage hardware but also from the labor required to keep your systems up and running. Virtualization is an approach to pooling and sharing IT resources so the supply of resources—processing power, storage, networking and so on—can flexibly and automatically meet fluctuating business demand. Virtualization can improve the quality of your IT services, enabling more consistency and predictability of operational availability.
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.
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

The Business Ready Configurations for Dell PowerEdge blade servers, Dell EqualLogic SAN, and VMware Infrastructure provides a detailed reference architecture for deploying and using VMware virtualization on Dell blades and iSCSI storage environments. The Dell PowerEdge M1000e supports the recently announced 11th generation Dell PowerEdge M610 and M710 blade servers based on the new Intel Xeon processors.
The rapid increases in computing power described by Moore’s
Law offer theoretical advantages for IT organizations—but it’s
market competition that translates those benefits into real value.
As vendors battle for market share, costs are falling for every part
of the desktop virtualization architecture. Meanwhile, desktop
virtualization technology itself is advancing quickly, providing new
ways to enable business mobility and enabling the flexibility that
people and organizations need to thrive. This trend is a double
win for customers—better solutions at a lower cost—and it’s
making the benefits of a service-based approach to IT available to
"HP customers need to be aware that changes in server market trends are affecting Itanium. Read this Clabby Analytics paper to understand how industry consolidation and new server architectures are driving a new class of applications, leaving Itanium behind.
Virtualization has moved to the forefront of many organizations' IT agendas, because it reduces both the number of physical servers required and the associated costs. This independent study by the International Technology group found IBM PowerVM more cost-competitive over time, compared to VMware, in terms of IT costs and the costs of downtime.
Organizations everywhere are turning to virtualization, cloud computing, and mobile technologies to support anytime, anywhere access to today’s work load intensive, data-heavy applications. Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers—built for high performance, 24/7 availability, and uncompromised reliability—can help IT organizations deliver the benefits of these transformative technologies.With cost-saving power, cooling, space, and management efficiencies, Dell’s new servers offer data centers unparalleled performance, efficiency, and reliability for a diverse range of enterprise applications.
Consolidation through server virtualization is a powerful agent for datacenter change, but shrinking your server footprint is just a part of the value that server virtualization brings to your IT organization. This paper explores the TCO of server virtualization, the costs that drive TCO and factors you should consider when calculating the return on your next virtualization investment.
Accelerates Time-to-Value, Reduce IT Complexity, and Improve Efficiency.
The Lenovo Converged HX Series Nutanix appliance, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors, consolidates compute, storage, and virtualization resources in one simple data center building block.
In this podcast, you’ll hear Tom Ready, Vice President of World Wide Server Services talk about the problems caused by server sprawl, such as increased hardware costs, decreased IT staff efficiency and excessive power consumption. You’ll learn how server virtualization produces marked gains in productivity and efficiency, and impressive reductions in cost.
Even with increased start-up costs, higher-end processors can offer a lower TCO thanks to better performance. This white paper shows detailed comparisons between higher- and lower-end servers with surprising results—including a 42% lower TCO and 87% faster performance for the higher-end processor.
