No Harmony in Harmonics

As the number of harmonics-producing loads has increased over the years, it has become increasingly necessary to address their influence when making any additions or changes to an installation. Read this whitepaper to learn more about the common causes, implications and resolutions for problematic harmonic distortion in your electrical system.

Technical Report: NetApp Solutions Guide

This document provides guidance on how to design and architect a scalable Microsoft applications mixed workload solution on highly available VMware vSphere 4 virtual infrastructure and NetApp unified storage. It highlights the flexibility of leveraging either a Fibre Channel (FC) protocol-based storage solutions or IP-based solutions (that is, iSCSI and NFS) for hosting virtual machines, and also describes the NetApp backup and recovery solution for the Microsoft applications.

Discovering Improved Data Protection Strategies for the Virtual World

This report examines the impact that virtualization has on data protection and disaster recovery and the need for highly virtualized servers and storage within this context. It outlines the factors you should consider as you evaluate and implement data protection solutions in your virtual environment.

Smarter System Development

A systems engineering trade study to support green initiatives with model-driven development.

Systems development in the twenty-first century: delivering business value by connecting people, processes and tools

The complexity of smarter products—which comprise an interconnected network of systems, software and hardware—makes development projects more complex and presents management and quality challenges. Poorly managed projects can decimate budgets and schedules, and poor-quality products can diminish brand equity and ruin customer confidence and relationships with those customers.

Delivering smarter, better products faster---with reduced cost and risk

Producing smarter products and systems can be challenging. IBM offers a comprehensive solution that can help you improve the quality of your systems while helping reduce your cost and risk.

Smarter Products: The Building Blocks for a Smarter Planet

As a way to differentiate their offerings and optimize business returns, manufacturers across all industries are delivering a new generation of “smarter products".

SharePoint and ECM Working Together

The rapid adoption of Microsoft SharePoint has created confusion in many organizations as regards to their future strategy for information management, particularly those with existing and established ECM, BPM and Records Management (RM) systems. There are a number of alternative strategies that acknowledge the strengths of SharePoint for collaboration and Enterprise 2.0, whilst utilizing traditional ECM and BPM suites for secure repositories and industry optimized business processes. In this report, we have measured the current thinking amongst the AIIM user-community as regards where to use SharePoint and where to use ECM suites. We do not focus on comparing feature-sets, but more consider the enterprise implications of different SharePoint and ECM strategies, and how to combine the best of the two product types.

Increasing Data Center Efficiency with Server Power Measurements

Intel IT defined methods for analyzing computing energy efficiency within our design computing environment, using measurements of actual server power consumption and utilization. We used these methods to identify trends and opportunities for improving data center efficiency, and to implement a pilot project that increased data center computing capacity.

No Harmony in Harmonics

Harmonic currents generated by non-linear electronic loads increase power system heat losses and power bills for end users. These harmonic-related losses reduce system efficiency, cause apparatus overheating, and increase power and air conditioning costs. Read this whitepaper to learn more about the common causes, implications and resolutions for problematic harmonic distortion in your electrical system.
