Many organizations have invested in server consolidation, particularly in their data centers. In remote offices, though, servers and storage exist as isolated islands of infrastructure that require management through separate operational processes and procedures. This approach could place data at risk. A new kind of storage architecture allows IT to consolidate remote servers and data in the data center by decoupling storage from its server over any distance—even thousands of miles—and still get the same performance as if the storage remained local to the branch. Organizations can now consolidate remote infrastructure to
increase security and ef?ciency, without adversely impacting end-user performance in branch of?ces.

Many organizations have invested in server consolidation, particularly in their data centers. In remote offices, though, servers and storage exist as isolated islands of infrastructure that require management through separate operational processes and procedures. This approach is costly and places data at risk. However, a new branch converged infrastructure architecture allows IT to consolidate in the branch office to minimize the IT footprint needed to run branch applications-all the while centralizing remote servers and data in the data center.
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.

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""
