Traditional security measures such as network firewalls are no longer enough to keep an enterprise secure. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux, security mechanisms are incorporated and applied at the core of every solution, and security is extended to include all the open source packages that make up Red Hat Enterprise Linux. As a result, customers experience a higher quality of service.
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 white paper covers all the factors that comprise an ROI model for comparing blades to rack servers, including power usage, cabling, software licensing and maintenance. Don't miss this opportunity to learn how blades can help you save on the TCO.
This paper describes the way a number of organizations have used IBM’s high-end server and software technology to build private cloud environments that have helped them save money, improve agility and more. Read more!

IP storage using Internet SCSI (iSCSI) provides opportunity for many organizations looking to extend existing Fibre Channel SANs to stranded servers, or looking to deploy Ethernet-based SANs. It can reduce costs by allowing IT managers to take advantage of existing, familiar Ethernet networks. Often the biggest complaint white new technology like iSCSI is its ability to provide more than simple functionality and connectivity.

In the 1990s, client/server was the predominant architecture used to build business applications. The applications had rich functionality, were responsive, and satisfied users' needs. Client/server worked in a time where the only networks were the ones owned and controlled by the enterprise and the only user base was internal.
In an effort to stay ahead of the competition, companies have poured capital resources into information technology. In many cases, this has been done on a group-by-group basis, with each line of business creating its own infrastructure silo. Each silo had its own systems, servers, storage, licenses, and support teams—and each shouldered the total cost of owning and operating a standalone infrastructure.Learn more by downloading this paper.
