If you are concerned about the future of your proprietary RISC platform, you need to consider a migration from proprietary to open, from UNIX to Linux while you still have options. You do not want to be forced to pour good money after bad upgrading an obsolete architecture in order simply to stay afloat. See how servers using Intel Xeon processors can offer better performance for a lower price while saving energy.
Discover the IBM System x3650, a highly available and expandable, rack-dense, 2U dual-socket SMP server, ideal for application serving in Web environments. This product guide gives an overview of the x3650, as well as key features and specifications of this flexible, reliable, and simple-to-manage server.
Continuous, high or 'on -demand' availability — the choice is yours. The coupling of two industry-leading technologies — VMware Infrastructure 3 and Stratus ftServer systems — gives IT managers a flexible, robust solution that delivers mission-critical SLAs along with the full benefits of virtualization.
Cloud computing allows companies to use IT resources as a service, taking advantage of shared applications, processing and storage managed within the cloud - either inside a private cloud at an internal data center, or in an external cloud at a service provider. Greater robustness of the virtualized servers supporting this new IT model will ensure a resilient cloud infrastructure capable of delivering "on-demand" access to users.
This white paper report describes an innovative, simple and effective approach to Lean Manufacturing. Simplified Market Pull (SMP) includes a 'pull' scheduling mechanism with appropriate controls and buffers that supports dramatic reductions in production lead-time and work-in-process inventory while freeing up available capacity and improving on-time performance and reliability.

In this session, attendees will explore the new features of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 performance. John Shakshober (Shak) will share the scalability optimizations for larger SMP systems, > 1TB of memory, new transparent hugepage support, multi-q network performance of 10Gbit and Infiniband, and KVM enhancements that went into Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Shak will also share benchmark data from industry standard workloads using common applications such as database servers, Java engines, and various financial applications on the latest Intel and AMD x86_64 hardware.
