Find out how Red Hat® CloudForms gives IT administrators and managers a comprehensive solution to optimize their virtual, private cloud, and hybrid cloud infrastructures with advanced capacity planning and sophisticated resource management capabilities.
The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF).
Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way
to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and
potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.
This paper focuses generally on optimal storage and storage management for SharePoint and specifically evaluates NetApp's approach, detailing how the capabilities in NetApp's DataONTAP and SnapManager for SharePoint Server offerings help to drive storage efficiency, reduce cost, and exclude complexity in a comprehensive SharePoint implementation. It is not so much a "how to" guide, but rather a "why to" explanation. Learn more today!
This insight paper will detail a new breed of enterprise solutions with integrated enterprise asset management (EAM) at their core. It will illustrate how such solutions can help asset-intensive companies to maximize capacity, increase asset utilization, minimize downtime, and provide transparency across all areas of the business.

Based on HP ProLiant Gen8 servers, the HP Flex-Bundles for VMware, provide predefined virtualization solutions that include everything you need to reduce application downtime by 30 percent, slash diagnostics and problem resolution time by 26 percent, boost VMware capacity utilization by 40 percent, and increase consolidation ratios by 37 percent. Discover how.
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.
Research and Education (R&E) networks are experiencing a surge in capacity demand as a result of the massive growth of streaming media (Netflix, Facebook, YouTube), growing utilization of public cloud services, and the continued need to support large scientific data file transfers for researchers collaborating around the globe. This increase in traffic is driving many operators to evaluate network backbone upgrades to 100G. Upgrading is necessary but costly. But what if operators could upgrade their R&E networks to 100G for 50 percent less CAPEX investment and extend the life of the existing routers, while actually simplifying the architecture to enable lower operational costs?

This white paper discusses the issues making data center cooling more challenging than ever and explains why starting the data center design process with the racks rather than the room can help businesses reduce energy consumption, increase capacity and optimize floor space utilization.
This paper examines how an integrated information technology solution can help you take advantage of economies of scale to boost manufacturing utilization, enhance service levels, and improve the efficiency of your sales and administrative activities.
NetApp® SnapManager® for Oracle (SMO) is designed to significantly simplify all these tasks and more. In this article, we examine how you can deploy SMO to simplify and even automate data protection, recovery, and cloning across both primary and secondary storage. Learn more today!
Companies faced with growing capacity requirements, underutilization of existing storage assets, and administrative inefficiency are searching for ways to decrease both cost and complexity. Read on to find out more about HP 3PAR Utility Storage now!
The usual cure for exploding file volumes is to add more general purpose file servers. That strategy eventually leads to server sprawl, which brings with it more management complexity, stranded disk capacity, wildly differing storage utilization rates and slower file access. Network-attached storage (NAS) appliances can add file serving capacity that's more easily managed, shareable, more scalable and more efficient than a sprawl of general purpose servers. Read this online article to learn about three basic considerations that can help simplify your NAS buying decision.
