consolidation is the reason enterprises deploy server
virtualization technologies across their data centers, improving server
and processor use. As more virtual servers are consolidated onto a single server
, demand is increased on the central processing unit (CPU) and host bus interfaces. However, you can do more with less by deploying a fibre channel host bus adapter, enhancing your server
consolidation levels. PubDate: 9/14/2007 3:28:00 PM
Abstract: When The Clientele Group of Epicor Software Corporation was faced with scalability and performance limits in their CRM software, they redesigned their application around the Microsoft® .NET Framework. A server architecture based on SQL Server™ 2000 and XML Web services removes their scalability limits, and supports multiple client applications. A smart client built with Windows® Forms gives customer support personnel a responsive application that is easy to deploy and update. A Web portal built with ASP.NET Web Forms gives authorized customers access to the same records as customer support sees internally. The new architecture can support 500 users on a single dual-CPU server, and offers many ways to scale up and out.

The next step is to get the facts on how they can benefit you.
Abstract: While concerns regarding open source are still being debated, many companies are experimenting with and deploying open source application servers in their data centers. While some are attracted to the ability to modify source code as needed, many are attracted to the perceived cost savings of open source. This white paper compares the total cost of ownership (TCO) of one open source and one commercial application server.

Abstract: Server virtualization isn’t a new concept. But the benefits of extending server virtualization to the desktop may not be common knowledge. A virtual desktop solution can allow companies to run virtualized PCs and computer desktops on servers located inside the data center. Besides allowing centralized management, this setup can improve security and deliver new capabilities to the user. Learn about other benefits.
Abstract: Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003 is frequently deployed in small or midsize applications. And while many customers view it as an excellent small network-attached storage (NAS) solution, they often move to larger, proprietary file server appliances when their needs expand beyond its capacity. This approach, however, adds more expense and complexity. But with Sanbolic’s Melio Cluster, capacity can be added as needed.
