Networked storage is being deployed in combination with server virtualization by an increasing amount of organizations interested in - consolidation, reduced costs, improved flexibility and availability of mission-critical applications. This ESG Lab report presents the results of a mixed workload performance benchmark test designed to assess the real world performance capabilities of an IBM Storwize V7000 storage system and IBM x3850 X5 servers in a VMware-enabled virtual server environment. Download now to find out the results.
The intent of this whitepaper is to explain the business requirement for physically auditing assets, to explore the bene?ts associated with conducting physical audits and to provide a step by step process for performing them.
This technical white paper presents benchmark results showing greater VM consolidation ratios than demonstrated in previous benchmarks and demonstrating the extent of the performance lead that PowerVM virtualization technologies provide.

When data center technology such as servers or storage area networks are aligned with specific applications or organizational departments, the result is often inefficiency. Through data center convergence, IT resources can be managed more easily.
Enterprise-critical applications—those which drive the core of an organization—require the highest availability infrastructure to support the most stringent service levels. EMC meets this need with a high performing, functionally capable, and competitively priced high-end networked storage system—the EMC® Symmetrix® VMAX® 20K system with the Enginuity™ operating environment. The VMAX 20K scale-out architecture helps organizations exceed the performance and capacity demands of hyper-consolidation, cloud deployments, and all-virtual Software Defined Data Centers (SDDCs), while simplifying the costs of data management.
Server virtualization has transformed corporate IT -- companies have enjoyed major cost savings and have gained flexibility and efficiency. Learn how utility storage makes for massive consolidation, flexibility and scalability so IT can lower costs.
Not long ago, if you asked an IT executive about transformation, there was a good chance you’d get a technology-centric response. You’d hear about consolidation and virtualization, power and cooling, security and availability.
Today, the responses are different. This edition of Unleashing IT is all about transformation. Not technology change, but business change through the use of technology.
Integrated Workplace Management System Systems (IWMS) is gaining industry momentum, in large part, because of the increasing focus on the importance of optimized, unified management of all assets across a complex enterprise. And that certainly includes real estate, facilities, and related assets that have historically been managed in isolated domains. In this study, leading technology analyst Gartner Inc. assesses the IWMS market to determine how the field is changing, who the leading software providers are, and how IWMS solutions have evolved in new directions to better fulfill emerging demand.
s your information technology (IT) organization pressured to get more work done with fewer people or on a constricted budget? Do you need to make IT a competitive asset rather than a cost center? Does your business struggle with slow software applications or data that's too often unavailable? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, it's time to take a close look at Oracle Exadata, the world's fastest database machine exclusively designed to run Oracle Database. It is the first database machine optimized for data warehousing, online transaction processing (OLTP), and database consolidation workloads as well as in-memory databases and database as a service (DBaaS).
This interactive eBook describes how virtualization is not a device to implement, but rather a journey to realize greater and greater gains. Featuring cases from midsize companies around the world, the eBook details how to get started, the importance of consolidation, tangible ways to fully benefit from virtualization and more.
Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time – but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.
An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server ""footprint""

The early days of the de-duplication target market could be characterized as the Wild West according to 451 Research, with a slew of startups shooting it out in an emerging market with tremendous potential. That phase was followed by a consolidation phase where the big guns acquired startups in a buy-is-better-than-build spree. A few smaller companies remain, but it's becoming increasingly clear that the disk-based de-duplication market will likely be dominated by a few large players. 451 Research thinks that HP, although coming from behind, has a good chance of joining those ranks because of the single-product approach to end-to-end de-duplication in its homegrown StoreOnce software, which for the time being, appears to have the performance advantage.
How hyperconverged infrastructure can reduce costs and help align enterprise IT with business needs. Includes chapters on hyperconvergence and cloud, datacenter consolidation, ROBO deployment, test and development environments, and disaster recovery.
Application consolidation can be an important cloud initiative. By consolidating applications on an all-flash, cloud-centric platform, IT has the opportunity to reduce costs, lower risk and support a more integrated and interoperable infrastructure. But for any organization thinking about application consolidation, it is important to closely evaluate the features and functions of the underlying all-flash storage platform.
You want to make sure that your platform not only delivers the performance you need, but also enables you to reduce costs, eliminate migrations, simplify operations and support cloud-enabled business agility.
