If anyone remained skeptical about the cloud’s utility— and staying power—as a delivery mechanism for everything from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to platform as a service (PaaS), software as a service (SaaS), and more, a quick look at recent statistics would surely change their mind. Indeed, with the cloud software market reaching US$48.8 billion in 2014 and anticipated to grow to US$112.8 billion by 2019, it’s clear that cloud computing is not just the way of the future, it’s also the way of the present.

IBM HACMP supports a wide variety of configurations, and provides the cluster administrator with a great deal of flexibility. With this flexibility comes the responsibility to make wise choices. This paper discusses the choices that the cluster designer can make, and about the alternatives that make for the highest level of availability.
Server virtualization has transformed corporate IT -- companies have enjoyed major cost savings and have gained flexibility and efficiency. But this has also led to a proliferation of virtual machines and servers that threaten to overwhelm data movement and storage technologies. In this IDG Tech Dossier, learn how utility storage makes for massive consolidation, flexibility and scalability, so IT departments can reduce storage infrastructure and lower costs while improving their ability to respond to fast-changing needs of business units.
In this IDG Tech Dossier sponsored by HP and Intel®, learn how utility storage makes for massive consolidation, flexibility and scalability, so IT departments can reduce storage infrastructure and lower costs while optimizing business agility.
This technical white paper reviews the principal tenets of application virtualization; freeing application configurations from OS and infrastructure; gaining centralized command and control over system resources; and dynamically allocating resources to applications based on demand.
This white paper, authored by industry analyst IDC, explores the problems confronting IT organizations today as they seek to bring data together from disparate sources in order to achieve better information coherence, operational efficiency, and more effective overall governance. Specifically, the paper considers the problems posed by the complexity of "data integration" technology in terms of its configuration and maintenance. It looks at the utility of a grid computing approach in providing scalability and manageability for "data integration" and considers how an appliance approach can further reduce cost and risk for customers.
Establishing an ESB is essential in delivering a Service-Oriented Architecture. But for an SOA to be effective, you’ll also need your ESB to recover quickly from unexpected hardware and software failures. Clustering can help by enabling your systems to operate in parallel, so that if one should fail, those remaining can seamlessly step in.
The world of super computing has changed in recent years, moving from a scale-up, monolithic, expensive architecture to the scale-out clustering of low cost microprocessors, also referred to as High Performance Business Computing (HPBC) clusters.

The evolution of Blade Computing has moved from mere server consolidation to a way of managing IT assets which brings significant business benefits. This paper aims to explain those benefits to the business and IT manager, and show how blade computing can be implemented to save money and improve the way IT serves the business needs.
With Grid computing, computer systems and other resources aren’t necessarily constrained to be dedicated to individual users or applications, but can be made available for dynamic pooling or sharing to meet the changing needs of the organization.
