NEC has introduced the Express5800/A2000 Series Servers to accommodate enterprise application demands with peak server reliability, availability, and serviceability. The new server architecture and NEC engineering functionality align well with many of the most important IT priorities in 2014, including virtualization, big data and advanced data analytics. With the Express5800/A2000 Servers, NEC has the opportunity to educate application owners and work with system integrators to drive awareness and ultimately investment in its new server platform, which will help drive customer value. In this white paper, you will learn how these next-generation servers from NEC are ready to accommodate some of today’s demanding workloads.
Server virtualization is revolutionizing the datacenter by making applications mobile, increasing application uptime, and allowing IT admins to allocate computing resources more efficiently. The technology has been deployed widely enough that the role of the computer server has evolved from directly hosting operating systems and applications to hosting fully virtualized environments. Server that can support more virtualized machines (VMs - complete application stacks) allow their users to gain higher return on their IT investments. Private Cloud can extend the virtualization benefits in ways that broaden the benefits of virtualization to all parts of the organization. In this white paper, you will learn how Corporate IT uses these tools to meet the increasing demand for IT services.
As virtualization technology evolves and improves, the server performance and power requirements for supporting a virtualized data center increase. Your aging servers are struggling to meet increasing virtual workload demands. These older, lower-performing servers further tax your data center by consuming valuable space and power. You want to update, upgrade, and consolidate to a powerful new server solution that will provide an excellent virtualization platform. In this white paper, you’ll learn how the NEC Express5800/A2040b enterprise server, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4890 v2, offers just that.
In addition to high reliability and availability, enterprise mission critical applications, data centers operating 24x7, and data analysis platforms all demand powerful data processing capabilities and stability. The NEC PCIe SSD Appliance for Microsoft® SQL Server® is a best-practice reference architecture for such demanding workloads. It comprises an Express 5800 Scalable Enterprise Server Series with Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family CPUs, high-performance HGST FlashMAX II PCIe server-mounted flash storage, and Microsoft® SQL Server®
2014. When compared with the previous reference architecture based on a server with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family CPUs, benchmark testing demonstrated a performance improvement of up to 173% in logical scan rate in a data warehouse environment. The testing also demonstrated consistently fast and stable performance in online transaction processing (OLTP) that could potentially be encountered.
B-to-B lead generation is a balancing act that requires marketers to balance lead quality with lead quantity and manage competing demands for website real estate. In this white paper, we outline practical approaches Offermatica customers employ to address these challenges.
On-demand computing is apparently in demand, at least in the eyes of data integration specialist Informatica Corp. The Switzerland of data integration, as some have called it, just announced availability of its first on-demand offering, which is specifically designed to handle data from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) stalwart, Salesforce.com.
