Picking the right servers, storage systems and management software is essential to successful IT consolidation initiatives. In the past, either scaling up (bigger, faster servers) or scaling out (more servers) would have been the answer. But one platform does not fit all needs. Scaling right means picking the scaleup or scale-out approach—or combination of the two—that best fits each situation.
Clients setting up smaller offices want to invest in the same type of technology as their larger competitors. Larger clients setting up remote branches need compute power not only at their head office, but also at distributed locations where key decisions that impact the local operation are made.This white paper compares the IBM BladeCenter S offering to the HP c3000 offering and articulates why IBM BladeCenter S is the best choice for small blade chassis platforms.
Smaller businesses represent the entrepreneurial engine of the U.S. economy - that's why IBM has extended the BladeCenter value proposition to smaller businesses and organizations in a compact, affordable package. Read more about how BladeCenter can benefit your business in this report by Pund-IT.
