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.
Public institutions—particularly government and higher education—need cost-efficient, flexible computing and storage solutions just as much if not more than corporations do. The time for virtualization is now.
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) continues to gain traction over traditional on-premise software licensing models as organizations aggressively seek more cost-effective, flexible and robust computing solutions. This paper will help you understand and calculate the true costs of SaaS to determine what benefits this important resource-maximizing approach can offer your company now and in the future.
The workplace is changing rapidly to accommodate mobile and flexible work styles, as employees expect the same computing experience when working remotely as they get in the office. And those expectations are rising rapidly among all employees — not just in the executive hallways or engineering labs. To discover more about mobile work styles and client virtualization trends in today’s enterprises, Citrix Systems and HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to survey IT decision-makers in North America, Europe, and Asia for this Technology Adoption Profile (TAP). Coupled with Forrester’s existing Forrsights data, we found that IT is turning to client virtualization to manage the growing complexity that BYOD programs and mobility initiatives have created and is embracing end-to-end solutions to overcome the toughest client virtualization challenges concerning cost, performance, scalability, and security.
