Virtualization does have its dangers, as it incurs greater stress on physical resources. While under utilization of CPU may be a driving factor to virtualize servers, other hardware resources may become overtaxed. Given that a host system has limited ability (depends on application) to page memory used by the guest systems, the most recognized bottleneck to address is physical memory (RAM). Options to programmatically alleviate memory bottlenecks incur performance issues when the disk is re-introduced. Another major component and perhaps less acknowledged is the disk subsystem. In many cases, depending the purpose and application of the guest/virtual systems, the disk bottleneck will be the most significant barrier to performance.

Dell servers have been optimized to help provide strong support for the latest ESX release, VMware ESX 3.5 Update 2, including enhanced performance for virtualized environments based on support for six-core Intel Xeon processors. Organizations that do not approach server virtualization with a clear plan risk developing a chaotic, inflexible infrastructure that wastes energy and resources.
Increase utilization, decrease energy costs with data center virtualization In the past, IT departments have responded to demands for new services and better performance by adding more hardware, resulting in underutilized technology silos and server sprawl. Today, many organizations are turning to virtualization technologies that facilitate consolidation and increased utilization. In short, virtualization brings the ability to pool, share and dynamically reallocate data center resources – and helps fulfill the promise of higher utilization and lower energy consumption and lower costs.Join us and learn why HP is well prepared to help you assess and address your needs. Find out what key virtualization partners -- such as VMware, Microsoft and Citrix – bring to the table and how HP can help you leverage their technology and expertise.

For many years small to midsize manufacturers and ERP software providers struggled with the notion that full system implementations included more complexity, not to mention cost, than could be incurred by organizations with limited resources. Fortunately, drastic improvements in price performance, enhancements to underlying technologies and introduction of new forms of delivery have made ERP solutions viable and affordable to manufacturing companies of all sizes.
Today’s operations teams are faced with more pressure than ever to ensure high service availability and performance. They must keep pace with the growing array of service demands, soaring costs, the rapid evolution of technology and an increasingly competitive marketplace. However, many organizations suffer from an obscured view into key business services and supporting technology, because they lack the closed-loop, cross-domain management that’s needed.
Many enterprises depend heavily on business services to generate revenue. But they often have trouble correlating availability and performance information from individual systems with the business as a whole. To do this, you need a clear view of your service infrastructure. Integrated availability and performance solutions can provide the visibility, control, and automation that your IT environment needs.
Through a collaborative, groundbreaking study with three prominent U.S. business schools, Senn Delaney has discovered that people who operate from a unique set of three core principles consistently perform at the top 10 percent of performance ratings. The joint study and subsequent research and surveys led to creation of our new, evidence-based, practical performance model that can be taught, practiced, reinforced, applied and measured.
For the human body to work at its full potential, it needs to be in good shape. Carrying excess fat, as we all know, leads to poor physical and mental performance, and the same could be said to be true of our workplaces. A healthy – and happy – office is one that is lean and fit, where the job in hand can be carried out with energy and efficiency, and where each part of the overall system functions effectively.
