Most enterprise datacenters are so cluttered with individually constructed servers, including database servers, that staff time is largely taken up with just the maintenance of these systems. As a result, IT service to business users suffers, and the agility of the enterprise suffers. Integrated systems represent an antidote to this problem. By dramatically reducing the amount of setup and maintenance time for the applications and databases they support, integrated systems enable the technical staff to spend more of their time supporting users and enabling the enterprise to thrive.
The IBM DB2 pureScale feature is designed to address your current and future business needs for continuous availability. This white paper introduces DB2 pureScale—what it looks like, where it comes from, and how it allows you to scale out your database on a set of servers in an active-active configuration that combines high availability with truly transparent application scaling.
As the amount and importance of corporate data grows, companies of all sizes are finding that they increasingly need to deploy high-availability database solutions to support their business-critical applications.
Discover how to accelerate database performance, handle change and growth in scalable, incremental steps, and deliver mission-critical data availability and protection with this unique commercial solution.
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.

Customers are increasingly constrained by large transfers of data backup, long backup times to storage devices, and less efficient use of server resources as a result. System and database availability is heavily impacted during backup periods, and with the rapid growth of storage and the need to archive customer data, IT managers are actively seeking solutions for their backup problems.
Microsoft Windows-based applications and data are growing in size and complexity, reaching the limits of their architecture and scalability. Download this whitepaper to read the benefits of updating database applications to the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 platform with the HP Integrity family of 64-bit servers.
Maintaining data security, performance, availability and recoverability is a growing challenge. The IBM Power platform offers many advantages in performance, scalability and key functional capabilities to support key database serving. In addition, it simplifies virtualization, making it easier to reduce the number of physical servers required. This ITG report shows the advantages of the IBM Power platform as an alternative to commodity Windows servers in mid-sized companies.

The risk and downtime of server migration have locked many IT teams into platforms that are no longer ideal. Migrations are often delayed or avoided—whether it’s moving data to the cloud or back on premises, or upgrading the hardware of the database software. This results in lost opportunities, unnecessary costs, and a lack of agility that today’s IT teams can no longer afford.
Carbonite Move Powered by DoubleTake quickly and easily migrates physical, virtual, and cloud workloads over any distance with minimal risk and near-zero downtime. Using efficient real-time, byte-level replication technology, Carbonite Move creates a replica of the data, application, database, or entire server being migrated and keeps it in sync with the production system. The migrated data can be validated without disrupting business operations, and downtime is limited to the seconds or minutes required for cutover to the new server.
