You can migrate live VMs between Intel processor-based servers but migration in a mixed CPU environment requires downtime and administrative hassle
A study commissioned by Intel Corp.
One of the greatest advantages of adopting a adopting a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment is being able to easily migrate the virtual machines that run your critical business applications—within the data center, across data centers, and between clouds. Routine hardware maintenance, data center expansion, server hardware upgrades, VM consolidation, and other events all require your IT staff to migrate VMs. For years, one powerful tool in your arsenal has been VMware vSphere® vMotion®, which can live migrate VMs from one host to another with zero
downtime, provided the servers share the same underlying architecture. The EVC (Enhanced vMotion Compatibility) feature of vMotion makes it possible to live migrate virtual machines even between different generations of CPUs within a given architecture.

This eBook offers a practical hands-on guide to “Day Two” challenges of accelerating large-scale PostgreSQL deployments.
With the ongoing shift towards open-source database solutions, it’s no surprise that PostgreSQL is the fastest growing database. While it’s tempting to simply compare the licensing costs of proprietary systems against that of open source, it is both a misleading and incorrect approach when evaluating the potential for return on investment of a database technology migration.
After a PostgreSQL deployment is live, there are a variety of day-two scenarios that require planning and strategizing.
The third section of this eBook provides a detailed analysis of all aspects accelerating large-scale PostgreSQL deployments:
? Backups and Availability: strategies, point-in-time recovery, availability and scalability
? Upgrades and DevOps: PostgreSQL upgrade process, application upgrades and CI/CD
Online media and entertainment companies face a tidal wave of content demand. Legacy infrastructure will be overwhelmed by the compute, storage and network demands. Businesses that make the right investment decisions and fine-tune performance can provide consumers with the user experience they expect.

Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”
Are you using the latest tools to guarantee your network survives an attack? Have you automated routine tasks, simplified upgrades and implemented plug-and-play deployment capability? Here are eight best practices for managing your network security.
