Cloud has evolved from a technological innovation to an integral part of business. Companies in
every industry are investing in Digital Transformation initiatives to evolve and grow; often, cloudbased
platforms are foundational elements of these transformations, as businesses increasingly seek the
flexibility and agility to roll out new software services in days or weeks, versus months or years.
As Digital Transformation initiatives unfold, one key challenge is to modernize the data center to
facilitate rapid delivery of new applications and services—while still ensuring that existing missioncritical
applications remain high performing, available, and secure.
Another challenge relates to new requirements for accelerating the analysis of organizational data to
near real time, much faster than previously possible with earlier incarnations of Business Intelligence
(BI). Agile businesses are demanding faster access to the information contained within operational and
business data stores to
The status quo in network monitoring is no longer adequate for large organizations. It’s simply taking too long for enterprises with mission-critical networks to resolve and find the root causes of network incidents. To speed things up, enterprises must add dedicated incident response and root cause analysis capabilities that are 100% accurate and reliable to their network management arsenals.
It takes so long to diagnose, fix, and eradicate network incidents that network uptime and performance are suffering. Because of this, organizations need to embrace incident response and root cause analysis capabilities to accelerate resolution times and avoid the network downtime and service degradation that can cost them thousands, if not millions, of dollars per minute.

Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained.
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.
