How business-critical database workloads perform when virtualized with Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series-based servers and VMware vSphere™

This white paper documents the performance of mission-critical database workloads running on servers equipped with the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series and VMware vSphere 4. Using standard and nonstandard testing tools, these tests replicate real-world scenarios found in production environments. Specifically, these tests show that the combination of the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series and VMware vSphere 4 can allow a company to achieve greater performance while dramatically reducing operating costs by using less energy and space. Servers built using this combination deliver up to 3.5 times better virtualization performance than previous generations, as well as near-native performance on enterprise applications such as database, productivity, and business applications running in a virtual environment. This combination also permits greater VM density, resulting in 3.7 times higher consolidation than servers built on the prior-generation processors. As a result, organizations can realize both capital and operational expense savings due to decreased hardware requirements and improved utilization.

On-premise e-Mail Archiving: Are You Ready for Optimized Exchange Migration?

Despite what you've heard, not everything is moving to the cloud. For example, BY 2014, 72% OF THE EXPECTED 470 MILLION EXCHANGE SERVER MAILBOXES worldwide WILL REMAIN ON-PREMISE. Download this exclusive tech dossier from Iron Mountain to learn why on-premise archiving can be the right choice for your Microsoft Exchange-hosted e-mail environment.

Reducing Costs Through Better Server Utilization

By consolidating systems onto the latest server technology and taking advantage of virtualization techniques, enterprises can optimize datacenter efficiency, gain flexibility, and reduce operating costs-without sacrificing performance or impacting service levels.

Unleash the power of your physical storage

Infrastructure Convergence is the key to successful IT transformation. One key element to achieve total convergence is to pool your compute and storage resources via virtualization technologies. Learn how the EVA Cluster can be used to unleash the power of your physical storage.

ESG - The Business Value of Reservationless Storage

Reservationless storage streamlines the delivery of block-based storage capacity that is used for thin provisioning and snapshots. It requires less capacity over the life of the storage system and dramatically reduces stranded storage. This ESG report explains how reservationless storage works and details three varied deployment scenarios.
