For over a decade, IT organizations have been plagued by high data warehousing costs, with millions of dollars spent annually on specialized, high-end hardware and DBA personnel overhead for performance tuning. The root cause: using data warehouse database management (DBMS) software, like Oracle and SQLServer that were designed 20-30 years ago to handle write-intensive OLTP workloads, not query-intensive analytic workloads.

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.
This white paper discusses Windows high availability, with a focus on business drivers and benefits. Cost and real-world benefits are considered the two most important elements in choosing the right high availability solution.
Microsoft SQL Server has enjoyed phenomenal success as a database server. Its relatively low cost, steadily increasing capabilities and ease of deployment have all combined to accelerate its growth. However, that same growth has led to a phenomenon commonly called SQL Server “sprawl”— the rampant, often uncontrolled, proliferation of SQL Server databases.
The success of SQL Server in recent years has produced a phenomenon of SQL Server sprawl - the uncoordinated deployment of tens, hundreds or even thousands of database servers. The result has been low levels of utilization, poor availability and, most importantly, an enormous management burden inflicted on many IT departments. There is an acute need for a way to deploy SQL Server that allows capacity to be matched appropriately to need, that provides high availability without introducing extra complexity and extra cost, and that actually simplifies the life of administrators.
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.
