The central theme of industry wide adoption of EHRs is based on the concept of “meaningful use,” which by design is a metric that will connect all the moving parts of this complicated initiative into a system that communicates and delivers high-grade electronic healthcare services. To qualify as a “meaningful user,” eligible providers must demonstrate use of a “qualified EHR” in a “meaningful manner.” It is a lofty and worthwhile goal. This white paper examines the total cost of ownership for “meaningful” EHR adoption in a physician practice.
This whitepaper details how ADCs and virtual appliances are inflexible, expensive, and lacking in visibility in contrast to the central management, autoscaling features, intelligent analytics, and flexibility offered by the Avi Vantage Platform. This document

NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Trend Micro Deep Discovery Inspector Model 4000 (Hardware model 4100) v3.8 SP5 and OfficeScan (OSCE) v12.0.1807. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Breach Detection Systems (BDS) Test Methodology v4.0 available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Trend Micro’s participation.
While the companion Comparative Reports on security, performance, and total cost of ownership (TCO) will provide information about all tested products, this Test Report provides detailed information not available elsewhere.
This white paper is focused on the design and architecture of an OCS 2007 environment in an HP BladeSystem infrastructure. The document outlines a building block approach to deploying OCS on the HP BladeSystem and focuses on how the design decisions around levels of availability, scalability, and the OCS 2007 feature set impact the hardware that is deployed and the version of OCS that is used. The white paper also covers a brief overview of the Microsoft Unified Communications framework including Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Office Communications Server 2007 and an overview of the HP BladeSystem architecture and how the HP BladeSystem can help lower the total cost of ownership (TCO).
In this White Paper IDC sees the use of static x86 server configurations is quickly becoming an outdated concept with the introduction of modern solutions based on blade architectures, which can offer both intelligent configuration and management and the ability to perform physical-to-virtual migration to promote uptime and efficient resource usage. When combined with the quickly maturing x86 hypervisor technologies available from a variety of solution providers, the synergy of blade architectures and virtualization offers customers the ability to dramatically increase utilization of their server investments, boost uptime, provide a more resilient and available infrastructure, and roll out new infrastructure and services more quickly.
To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.
The need for reliable data centers is growing, especially in the small to medium sized business market. So too is the price of data centers -- both in terms of initial cost and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) -- as equipment, service and utility costs continue to escalate. How is a data center manager going to support an IT-based business strategy that hinges on high availability, at a reasonable business cost? Insource? Outsource? Build? Lease? This presentation looks at the factors driving data centers costs, their impact, how they can be controlled, and how to justify the data center you need.
Unified Communications (UC) aims to unite securely and seamlessly all the different business communications channels that exist in a company. That includes voice, video, data, IM, mobility and the Web etc. This report examines in detail the key industry drivers and benefits that are inspiring large scale enterprises to adopt a Unified Communications strategy.

Dell servers have been optimized to help provide strong support for the latest ESX release, VMware ESX 3.5 Update 2, including enhanced performance for virtualized environments based on support for six-core Intel Xeon processors. Organizations that do not approach server virtualization with a clear plan risk developing a chaotic, inflexible infrastructure that wastes energy and resources.
Frustrated by the costs of maintain ever larger data centers-or building new ones-many companies are exploring virtualization. Virtualization lets your IT staff turn your data center into an internal cloud of computing resources controlled by a single virtual data center operating system (VDC-OS).
In an economic environment that is repeatedly heralding the message "do more with less" the efficiency of hypervisors are an oft-overlooked aspect of virtual infrastructure acquisition that has massive impact on total price.
Today's use of virtualization technology allows IT professionals to automatically manage the resources of the physical server to efficiently support multiple operating systems, each supporting different applications. This IDC Technology Assessment presents IDC's view of how virtualization technologies are impacting and will continue to impact operating environments and the operating environment market near- and long-term.
VMware virtualization enables customers to reduce their server TCO and quickly delivers signification ROI. This paper describes commonly used TCO models and looks at several case studies that apply TCO models to virtualization projects. Learn more.
