NEC has introduced the Express5800/A2000 Series Servers to accommodate enterprise application demands with peak server reliability, availability, and serviceability. The new server architecture and NEC engineering functionality align well with many of the most important IT priorities in 2014, including virtualization, big data and advanced data analytics. With the Express5800/A2000 Servers, NEC has the opportunity to educate application owners and work with system integrators to drive awareness and ultimately investment in its new server platform, which will help drive customer value. In this white paper, you will learn how these next-generation servers from NEC are ready to accommodate some of today’s demanding workloads.
Server virtualization is revolutionizing the datacenter by making applications mobile, increasing application uptime, and allowing IT admins to allocate computing resources more efficiently. The technology has been deployed widely enough that the role of the computer server has evolved from directly hosting operating systems and applications to hosting fully virtualized environments. Server that can support more virtualized machines (VMs - complete application stacks) allow their users to gain higher return on their IT investments. Private Cloud can extend the virtualization benefits in ways that broaden the benefits of virtualization to all parts of the organization. In this white paper, you will learn how Corporate IT uses these tools to meet the increasing demand for IT services.
By now, much has been written about the advantages server virtualization brings to an enterprise. In the June 2013 survey, 63% of all companies and 100% of large enterprises reported having a server virtualization program. However, when you
segment the virtualization rates, you find a trend that indicates that large enterprises in particular are not gaining all of the advantages that server virtualization has to offer.
What is more difficult and remains a challenge, particularly for large enterprises, is virtualizing Tier 1 applications. These are large, mission-critical enterprise applications such as email, customer relationship management (CRM), or enterprise resource planning (ERP). These applications tend to be very large,
consume the entire capacity of a current generation server, and require high application uptimes. As shown in Figure 1, the virtualization rates for these applications are far lower than Tier 2 apps. In this eBook, you’ll learn how the NEC enterprise server provides a platform that now gives customers the right platform to virtualize their Tier 1 apps.
As virtualization technology evolves and improves, the server performance and power requirements for supporting a virtualized data center increase. Your aging servers are struggling to meet increasing virtual workload demands. These older, lower-performing servers further tax your data center by consuming valuable space and power. You want to update, upgrade, and consolidate to a powerful new server solution that will provide an excellent virtualization platform. In this white paper, you’ll learn how the NEC Express5800/A2040b enterprise server, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4890 v2, offers just that.
We consolidated nine legacy servers into one NEC Express5800/A2040b enterprise server, and proved real benefits of doing so. In this infographic, you’ll learn how the NEC Express5800/A2040b enterprise server, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4890 v2, offers just that.
Without a doubt, performance is the database professional’s number one concern when it comes to virtualizing Microsoft SQL Server. While virtualizing SQL Server is nothing new, even today there are some people who still think that SQL Server is too resource-intensive to virtualize. That’s definitely not the case. However, there are several tips and best practices that you need to follow to achieve optimum performance and availability for your virtual SQL Server instances. In this whitepaper, you’ll learn about the best practices, techniques, and server platform for virtualizing SQL Server to obtain the maximum virtualized database performance. In this white paper, you’ll learn about the best practices, techniques, and server platform for virtualizing SQL Server to obtain the maximum virtualized database performance.
In addition to high reliability and availability, enterprise mission critical applications, data centers operating 24x7, and data analysis platforms all demand powerful data processing capabilities and stability. The NEC PCIe SSD Appliance for Microsoft® SQL Server® is a best-practice reference architecture for such demanding workloads. It comprises an Express 5800 Scalable Enterprise Server Series with Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family CPUs, high-performance HGST FlashMAX II PCIe server-mounted flash storage, and Microsoft® SQL Server®
2014. When compared with the previous reference architecture based on a server with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family CPUs, benchmark testing demonstrated a performance improvement of up to 173% in logical scan rate in a data warehouse environment. The testing also demonstrated consistently fast and stable performance in online transaction processing (OLTP) that could potentially be encountered.
The growth of structured data from databases, e-mail and other applications has been exponential. The increasing flood of data can lead to a host of problems — failing to recognize that data storage must be managed as a critical resource often results in a very difficult environment to manage, a higher cost of ownership, less responsiveness to change and added risk to the business. This white paper discusses how a dedicated, optimized network storage solution can increase data availability and reduce operating costs by simplifying management and improving capacity utilization.

This Yankee Group White Paper, compliments of NetSuite, shows how on-demand applications can significantly reduce cost vs. on-premise applications. See how to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of deploying & integrating CRM & accounting/ERP applications.
What you'll learn in this webinar:
Optimize your operations by taking advantage of the modern, scalable cloud infrastructure available on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Migrate your Oracle applications and databases to AWS and get all the benefits of the cloud.
Migrating mission-critical Oracle databases and applications to the cloud is complex and you may feel locked into your platform. Amazon Aurora provides commercial-grade database performance and availability at a fraction of the cost. Apps Associates—an AWS Partner Network (APN) Partner and Oracle expert—can migrate enterprise workloads to the cloud, freeing customers to focus on higher-value initiatives.
Watch this webinar to learn how to:
Run your entire Oracle database and application environment on the cloud
Take advantage of lower IT costs on the cloud and reduce your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Leverage Amazon Aurora to help satisfy your company’s cloud-first mandate, improve security, and reduce risk
Application owners and DevOps teams want to build in AWS without compromising security, but often lack the tools to keep sensitive data secure. During Pacific Dental’s move to Amazon Web Services (AWS), the company sought to enhance and operationalize its security measures to match the speed and scale of the cloud, using a cloud access security broker (CASB) to proactively address misconfiguration and risk to their data.
Register for our webinar to learn how Pacific Dental leveraged McAfee’s CASB solution, McAfee MVISION Cloud, to address these challenges and fulfill their security responsibility.
When determining the best way to protect their applications and data on Amazon Web Services (AWS), organizations are often challenged by the high total cost of ownership and threat dwell times found in other security solutions. Armor can help your organization overcome these barriers and increase awareness of what is being deployed, and where, so you can better control your security policies. Attend our upcoming webinar to see how Armor helps customers reduce their time to market, accelerate development timeline, and gain quick, secure application access.
