A hardware and software system specifically designed for the database software to optimize database operations, both for performance and administrative simplicity. An environment that supports workload consolidation, thereby reducing the number of physical servers required for the databases in question.
Benefits: Reduced cost and optimal performance.
"It is very well understood that Business Enterprises today need to become more agile, meet new and increasing workload and security requirements, while reducing overall IT cost and risk. To meet these requirements and remain competitive many companies are turning to cloud computing. Companies thus need to formulate a strategy that can easily move them from traditional on-premises IT to private or public clouds.
Oracle understand the need for IT organizations to move to cloud computing at the same time also recognizes that moving to the cloud is a multi-step journey that starts with standardization and consolidation of IT infrastructure and ends by moving applications and data to the cloud.
The PDF is meant to help you gauge through the Oracle’s SPARC servers and give you an experience of simplified journey to the cloud by using the same technology for both cloud and on-premises deployments. No matter where your IT organization is on the journey to the cloud SPARC servers will be an i

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.
As enterprises focus on consolidation of data centers, they continue to expand the roles and numbers of branch offices, often in locations that are difficult to support and protect. Learn to extend the virtual edge of the data center to branch offices, enabling complete consolidation of servers and data, improving security, and providing LAN performance at the edge via the WAN.
As organizations consolidate backup and disaster recovery operations, WAN optimization plays a key role in mitigating risk without sacrificing performance. Discover a new architectural approach that extends the virtual edge of the data center to the branch for complete server and data consolidation without a performance compromise.
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""
Many organizations have understandably turned to consolidation and virtualization to reduce server complexity, footprint and cost-to-scale. The next step is to optimize performance using analytics, policy-based automation and new technologies like cloud computing. Companies that focus on server optimization are seeing greater flexibility and sustained cost and operational efficiencies, with administrators able to manage 2.5 times more servers and almost twice as many virtual machines per server.
