"Power and Cooling", a video presentation, uses vivid computer modeling to illustrate why traditional trial-and-error approaches are inadequate for effective thermal management . Data center cooling costs now account for half of all power-related outlays. And they continue to soar. But cutting these costs - while at the same time improving availability and capacity - is achievable. The trick is knowing how.
In an effort to stay ahead of the competition, companies have poured capital resources into information technology. In many cases, this has been done on a group-by-group basis, with each line of business creating its own infrastructure silo. Each silo had its own systems, servers, storage, licenses, and support teams—and each shouldered the total cost of owning and operating a standalone infrastructure.Learn more by downloading this paper.
Despite its six syllables, 'virtualization' is a straight - forward concept. It can enable your organization to get more value not only from computer and storage hardware but also from the labor required to keep your systems up and running. Virtualization is an approach to pooling and sharing IT resources so the supply of resources—processing power, storage, networking and so on—can flexibly and automatically meet fluctuating business demand. Virtualization can improve the quality of your IT services, enabling more consistency and predictability of operational availability.
Increase utilization, decrease energy costs with data center virtualization In the past, IT departments have responded to demands for new services and better performance by adding more hardware, resulting in underutilized technology silos and server sprawl. Today, many organizations are turning to virtualization technologies that facilitate consolidation and increased utilization. In short, virtualization brings the ability to pool, share and dynamically reallocate data center resources – and helps fulfill the promise of higher utilization and lower energy consumption and lower costs.Join us and learn why HP is well prepared to help you assess and address your needs.

Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained.
The primary goal of this guide is not simply to provide a checklist of tasks, but to help you develop an understanding of the disaster recovery (DR) planning process and the principles that underlie it. Before getting into the details, let’s consider first just what this guide will do for you and equally importantly, what it will not do. What this guide will do is to lay out a framework for DR planning that keeps things conceptually simple and helps you know what steps must be carried out and why, without a lot of jargon or unnecessary formality.
