Use Cases: Microsoft Exchange 2010 on VMware

Many VMware customers running Exchange 2003, 2007, and 2010 are already taking advantage of the benefits offered by virtualization to improve their organization's messaging capabilities and effectiveness. Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 includes a number of enhancements in areas such as availability, architecture, remote access, operational efficiency, and improved end-user experience. For organizations not already using vSphere, the upgrade cycle from previous versions of Exchange to Exchange 2010 presents an ideal opportunity to begin leveraging the power and flexibility of virtual machine technology. This guide provides use cases and explains the primary technical benefits that can be achieved by deploying Exchange 2010 on VMware vSphere."

Essential Deployment Tips: Oracle Databases on VMware vSphere 4

Even the most demanding Oracle database workloads can now be virtualized with VMware vSphere and ESX 4 -- with greater than 95 percent of Oracle instances matching native performance. This paper provides the essential tips necessary to successfully deploy Oracle on VMware virtual infrastructure to enable database administrators (DBAs) to meet their performance and availability goals. This paper provides technical guidance when deploying Oracle databases on VMware vSphere. This document will also show that the same best practices, tuning tips and tricks, and skill sets necessary to deploy Oracle databases in physical environments can be leveraged when deploying Oracle databases in virtual environments.

Use Cases: Oracle Databases on VMware

Production database administrators are primarily concerned with scalability, performance and overall resource management. Deploying Oracle databases on vSphere is not significantly different from deploying Oracle on physical servers. Database architects can take advantage of the features and capabilities of vSphere to create their enterprise database strategy and next-generation scalable architectures. This paper provides use cases and benefits delivered by virtualizing Oracle databases on VMware vSphere.

Sybase® IQ: The Economics of Business Reporting

Each year, the amount of data your company handles grows exponentially, as does the number of users who need access to insights from this growing data. Your systems must work harder every day to satisfy increased demands for answers that support mission-critical business decisions. Data analysis and business reporting are consuming more and more of system and staff resources. It's time to evaluate better alternatives.

An Alternative Database Approach

Traditional, relational databases are unable to satisfy the growing need for analytical performance. An alternative data base approach, which begins by storing data by columns instead of rows, has proven to meet today's exploding data warehouses. Learn how a column-oriented DBMS works, why it has superior performance, reduced data access latency and a reduced storage footprint.

Handling Unpredictable Queries

Query loads that are unpredictable, composed largely of ad hoc inquiries can be challenging and time consuming. Read this report from Bloor Research to see their views on how the latest release of Sybase IQ surpasses traditional RDBMs as well as data warehouse appliances.
