IBM HACMP supports a wide variety of configurations, and provides the cluster administrator with a great deal of flexibility. With this flexibility comes the responsibility to make wise choices. This paper discusses the choices that the cluster designer can make, and about the alternatives that make for the highest level of availability.
This report presents the results of tests conducted by Edison Group to compare the power consumption of the IBM BladeCenter blade server system with a comparable BladeSystem blade server configuration from HP. It provides background, configuration details, and methodology by which Edison reached its conclusion: that IBM BladeCenter H requires nearly 10 percent less power than the equivalently configured HP BladeSystem c7000.

The challenge facing businesses today is the need to achieve ever-higher levels of service and maximize return on investment, while simultaneously minimizing costs. This white paper reveals how IBM Maximo® asset and service management solutions help your organization run more efficiently.
Integrate facilities and IT. Realize the value of the green data center.As data center costs continue to rise, green is the word of the day. What it means is cost savings through consolidation and lower energy usage, as this white paper shows. See the role energy consumption plays in today’s data centers, and how IBM Tivoli® solutions can help optimize energy use.
Linux reliability has come of age. Several major Linux distributions including Novell SUSE, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu scored high in reliability, improved over 2006 uptime statistics and achieved near parity with Unix distributions. Security incidents plagued Windows Server 2003, which saw uptime decrease by roughly 10% during last year. Corporations must continue to adhere to best practices in configuration, management and security to ensure optimal server operating system and application reliability.

Succeeding in today's economy not only means utilizing technology to create intelligent, instrumented and interconnected solutions, but leveraging technology to optimize costs and do more with less. This brochure describes how the 3 key attributes of IBM's application foundation help deliver higher quality of service at a lower cost than JBoss.
This tool can help you see just how much you can save with Intel Xeon Processor technology. You'll get an understanding of how systems with these processors, along with details of your situation, including replacement rates and employee training costs will affect overall IT costs in the future.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 demonstrated its ability to scale to support the needs of an enterprise organization with a very large customer service database. In a test based on a customer database of over 1 billion records, Microsoft Dynamics CRM was able to achieve sub-second response times using a modest hardware configuration.
GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP/Lotus is a server based anti-spam, anti-phishing and email management solution, which is used by 80,000 customers worldwide. The latest version uses two anti-spam engines, along with advanced spam filtering techniques, to give administrators a high spam capture rate straight out-of-the-box, with minimal configuration. GFI MailEssentials also minimizes false positives, so you do not need to worry about important emails being marked as spam.
Desktop management at any scale is a tedious job. Imaging, reimaging, and troubleshooting desktop systems consume valuable IT resources, and keep employees from being productive. Securing the information generated on desktops, tablets, and smartphones is no simple job either.
Many organizations are deploying virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) for these reasons. But for deployment to be successful, computing and storage infrastructures must deliver high-quality, predictable, and productive user experiences.
Often, the best way to accomplish this is through flash-based storage solutions due to its low latency/high IOPS nature. Unfortunately many IT professionals aren't sure what type of flash array is best for their needs or how to ensure that all elements of their VDI work seamlessly.
Download now and learn how to validate a provide VDI configuration across NexGen N5 Hybrid Flash Array, VMWare Horizon View, Cisco Unified Computing System™(UCS), and Cisco Nexus Switches.
Storage area networks (SAN) deliver consolidated storage and advanced storage management features. One advanced SAN configuration involves booting servers directly from the SAN, eliminating all locally attached storage, and improving server operations. Several server boot options are available. To select the right boot option for your environment, you should weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each.
Most storage devices support multiple SAN connections for performance and reliability, but in many configurations servers use only a single storage connection. This creates a single point of failure and potential performance bottleneck for I/O. Multipath Input/Output (MPIO) is server software that extends redundancy to the entire I/O pathway in a SAN, delivering fault tolerance, high availability, and better performance.
Small business telephone systems are available in a variety of configurations, offering an ever-growing range of features and benefits. The most advanced small business telephone systems today run on Internet Protocol (IP) networks—the same network many small businesses use to connect employees, devices and information resources.
