Maximize the return on your VMware virtualization investment. With HP and VMware solutions, you can simplify, optimize, and save in your VMware environment with the right infrastructure to store, protect, and manage your virtual servers, desktops, and data.
This paper outlines some of the important considerations for encrypting data on tape, and is intended to help IT administrators make the right decision for their environment and their company's data security needs.
Virtualization reduces the number of physical servers IT needs to provision and maintain, but it also transforms the data protection paradigm. Now businesses can recover from failures in minutes, not hours, with unprecedented affordability. The key to achieving the best business uptime and cost savings is the effective design of storage management and data protection. This white paper outlines an end-to-end storage and data protection architecture optimized for VMware vSphere and Microsoft® Hyper-V environments.
The objective of this white paper is to provide IT executives and UNIX subject matter experts (SMEs) with a high level comparison of the UNIX virtualization offerings from HP for Integrity and HP-UX1 vs. IBM for Power and AIX. To assist in making a balanced comparison, this paper provides a high-level, feature-to-feature comparison of key areas of virtualization and virtualization management as well as modular table-based comparisons. Final this paper will examine information from publicly available resources.
Watch to learn:
- How to tackle the challenge of multi-speed IT with WebSphere Application Server's unique approach to delivering application infrastructure based on Java EE 7
- How to provide continuous availability for running modern apps that require on-demand dynamic scalability and high operational resiliency
- How the lighweight and modular architecture of WebSphere Liberty provides an ideal foundation to develop and deploy microservices
- How to deliver flexibility to develop, deploy and consume application infrastructure - on-premises or on the cloud, including emerging virtualization technologies such as Docker
- How to manage and monitor thousands of applications and servers with a single management interface for ease of problem determination
If your organization is deploying a new server farm or cluster for any reason — a newly virtualized application or a growing business initiative, perhaps — this is the time to consider blade servers as a cost-effective alternative to traditional rack servers. In most use cases, you will find blade servers to be less expensive than rack servers for both the initial purchase as well as for long-term total cost of ownership (TCO). In addition, blades enable improvements in manageability, agility, scalability and power consumption.
This top ten list provides key guidelines for honing in on the differences between the solutions and helping to understand the basic options and limitations of each server virtualization technologies approach.
This joint Intel white paper explores how to address virtualization in an environment with high I/O. The paper includes a technology overview, network concerns and explains how Virtuozzo and Intel are well suited for the high I/O environment.
Using templates, administrators can consolidate OS and application management so that only a single instance of a software package is required and managed on a physical machine regardless of the number of virtual environments that use the software.
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.
Virtualization and workload management are essential technologies for maximizing scalability, availability and value on high-end computing systems, and Itanium(r) 2-based servers offer many options. One is SWsoft Virtuozzo, a proven, software-based virtualization solution for consolidating Linux and Windows applications.
This white paper describes a set of best practices to deploy a 1,500-user virtualized Exchange 2007 environment using VMware® ESXT 3.5. Specifically, this project demonstrates how to configure and deploy the Exchange 2007 Mailbox, Hub Transport, and Client Access server roles onto individual VMware virtual machines (VMs), which in turn are deployed onto a single VMware ESX Server. The environment includes HP ProLiant c-Class Blade servers connected to an HP StorageWorks 4400 Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA4400) Disk Array.
Simplify operations and maximize efficiency with the HP StorageWorks SVSP. This white paper describes the powerful combination of HP StorageWorks SVSP storage virtualization solution with server virtualization products to produce a more dynamic IT infrastructure that improves efficiencies and simplifies operations. The rapid proliferation of server virtualization technologies (especially VMware) is due to the value of easily consolidating many servers and applications, into a single physical device, allowing many instances to run on a common hardware platform. In this manner, it is possible to take tens-or even hundreds-of underutilized physical servers and consolidate them into a few easy-to-manage servers while maintaining the logical separation between each application.
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.
IT-Informatik chose a full virtualization strategy, based on IBM® PowerLinux™ servers with IBM PowerVM® virtualization and Live Partition Mobility, to manage its SAP hosting services. The new solution slashes IT operational costs by more than 50 percent and enables IT-Informatik to set up new customer environments 80 percent faster.
How can your midsize business meet new demands for data storage with limited resources? In this eguide, you’ll find out that this innovative solution can radically improve storage performance—while minimizing expenses
The data center has gone through many major evolutionary changes over the past several decades, and each change has been defined by major shifts in architectures. The industry moved from the mainframe era to client/server computing and then to Internet computing. In 2011, another major shift began: the shift to a virtual data center. This has been the primary driver in enabling customers to transition to the cloud and ultimately IT as a service. The shift to a virtual data center will be the single biggest transition in the history of computing. It will reshape all the major data center tiers: applications, storage, servers and the network.
Walk past your data center, and you might hear a soft, plaintive call: “Feed me, feed me…” It is not your engineers
demanding more pizza. It is your servers and applications. And the call is growing louder.
Mobile and virtualized workloads, cloud applications, big data, heterogeneous devices: they are all growing in your
business, demanding previously unimagined capacity and performance from your servers and data center fabric.
And that demand is not slacking. Your employees, applications, and competitive advantage increasingly depend on
it. Those servers and applications need to be fed. And if you have not started planning for 40 gigabits per second
(Gbps) to the server rack, you will need to soon.
