Flexible infrastructure choices and application architectures are changing the way that modern enterprises run their computing.
Enterprises have become application-centric, investing significant effort and resources on continuous delivery goals and DevOps
practices to achieve automation of routine IT and operations tasks. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity
and agility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications and updates.
Read on to find out how your business can:
- Simplify IT Management and Administration
- Improve Performance and Application Availability
- Reduce Total Cost of Ownership
- Enhance IT and Business Agility
Silver Peak Systems' new Agility technology initiative gives application owners easy control with point-and-click virtual workload acceleration thanks to tight integration with VMware vCenter and other virtual infrastructure management consoles.
Organizations undergoing digital transformations are dealing with amplified concerns around risk and security, which isn’t surprising.
Ensuring visibility and accountability for compliance, security and governance while enabling flexibility for digital transformation requires a fresh and more tightly aligned approach to who—and now what in the form of applications, services, machines and things—are given the keys to the kingdom: privileged access.
Read this white paper to understand how the digital transformation journey requires thinking through a clear roadmap that spans multiple years, anticipating near- and long-term requirements from a privileged access management solution and ensuring scope and scale needs at a reasonable cost of ownership through the entire lifecycle.
Businesses all over the world run on applications and data.
Your business does as well. The success of your business relies
on the performance of your applications because they deliver
the services to your customers that keep you in business. Your
IT infrastructure supports and carries these applications—the
lifeblood of your company. How to keep things up and running,
connected, responsive and relevant is enough to keep most
app owners up at night.
Emerging information technologies like composite and multi-tier applications, service oriented architectures (SOA), virtualization, grid and cluster computing, and Web Service-based application delivery create an extraordinary opportunity for IT managers. With these dynamic technologies, they can provide business owners with IT services that are extremely flexible and agile, driving a more dynamic and competitive business.
Lithium-ion battery prices have decreased
over the years and are now becoming a viable option for UPS applications. This paper
provides a brief overview of li-ion batteries in
comparison to VRLA batteries for singlephase UPS applications. A 10-year total
cost of ownership (TCO) analysis is also
provided showing li-ion is 53% less than
VRLA despite their capital cost premium. A
sensitivity analysis reveals the TCO drivers.
In addition to high reliability and availability, enterprise mission critical applications, data centers operating 24x7, and data analysis platforms all demand powerful data processing capabilities and stability. The NEC PCIe SSD Appliance for Microsoft® SQL Server® is a best-practice reference architecture for such demanding workloads. It comprises an Express 5800 Scalable Enterprise Server Series with Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family CPUs, high-performance HGST FlashMAX II PCIe server-mounted flash storage, and Microsoft® SQL Server®
2014. When compared with the previous reference architecture based on a server with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family CPUs, benchmark testing demonstrated a performance improvement of up to 173% in logical scan rate in a data warehouse environment. The testing also demonstrated consistently fast and stable performance in online transaction processing (OLTP) that could potentially be encountered.
We consolidated nine legacy servers into one NEC Express5800/A2040b enterprise server, and proved real benefits of doing so. In this infographic, you’ll learn how the NEC Express5800/A2040b enterprise server, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4890 v2, offers just that.
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.

The business intelligence (BI) “boom” of the 1990s was something BIG: big projects designed to give big companies with big budgets a competitive advantage. And while BI delivered big returns for some companies, for others it was nothing but a big headache. An estimated 50% of all data warehousing projects failed to meet their goals. Why? Because many companies underestimated just how big an undertaking BI really was.
CA Live API Creator creates application back-ends exposing enterprise-class REST/JSON APIs, including access to existing
data and applications. It enables developers to create new REST endpoints that join data across diverse data sources using
role-based security and interactive testing.
The CA Live API Creator Reactive Logic model yields systems that are highly scalable and reliable. Its optimized services
run more efficiently and with less fragility than services manually coded by skilled developers and architects.
This document is written for IT decision makers, architects, engineers, and application owners who make architectural decisions for hybrid deployments. The architecture described in this document is for large and medium-sized businesses that are considering hybrid cloud solutions. This document is also useful for service providers that deliver hybrid cloud services to businesses.

Server virtualization is revolutionizing the datacenter by making applications mobile, increasing application uptime, and allowing IT admins to allocate computing resources more efficiently. The technology has been deployed widely enough that the role of the computer server has evolved from directly hosting operating systems and applications to hosting fully virtualized environments. Server that can support more virtualized machines (VMs - complete application stacks) allow their users to gain higher return on their IT investments. Private Cloud can extend the virtualization benefits in ways that broaden the benefits of virtualization to all parts of the organization. In this white paper, you will learn how Corporate IT uses these tools to meet the increasing demand for IT services.
The objective of this paper is to give you an update on the latest functions, features and benefits of IBM DB2 for z/OS. This paper also features an introduction to DB2 10 by Roger Miller, which highlights the main functions, features and more.
By now, much has been written about the advantages server virtualization brings to an enterprise. In the June 2013 survey, 63% of all companies and 100% of large enterprises reported having a server virtualization program. However, when you
segment the virtualization rates, you find a trend that indicates that large enterprises in particular are not gaining all of the advantages that server virtualization has to offer.
What is more difficult and remains a challenge, particularly for large enterprises, is virtualizing Tier 1 applications. These are large, mission-critical enterprise applications such as email, customer relationship management (CRM), or enterprise resource planning (ERP). These applications tend to be very large,
consume the entire capacity of a current generation server, and require high application uptimes. As shown in Figure 1, the virtualization rates for these applications are far lower than Tier 2 apps. In this eBook, you’ll learn how the NEC enterprise server provides a platform that now gives customers the right platform to virtualize their Tier 1 apps.
The growth of structured data from databases, e-mail and other applications has been exponential. The increasing flood of data can lead to a host of problems — failing to recognize that data storage must be managed as a critical resource often results in a very difficult environment to manage, a higher cost of ownership, less responsiveness to change and added risk to the business. This white paper discusses how a dedicated, optimized network storage solution can increase data availability and reduce operating costs by simplifying management and improving capacity utilization.
