Whether your company has been selling online for 20 minutes or 20 years, you are
undoubtedly familiar with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). It
requires merchants to create security management policies and procedures for safeguarding
customers’ payment data.
Originally created by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express in 2004, the PCI DSS
has evolved over the years to ensure online sellers have the systems and processes in place
to prevent a data breach.
Increased processing needs means increased energy costs. In fact, power costs can often exceed hardware costs. Read this white paper and see how the pairing of new IBM System x and BladeCenter servers with the new Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series can reduce costs and improve performance.
Intel faces a familiar challenge: do more with less. With compute capacity growing exponentially and chip size expectation shrinking, the new 5500 series delivers on both fronts. This white paper delivers test results that show increased performance and speed along with greater efficiency.
Even with increased start-up costs, higher-end processors can offer a lower TCO thanks to better performance. This white paper shows detailed comparisons between higher- and lower-end servers with surprising results—including a 42% lower TCO and 87% faster performance for the higher-end processor.
Live migration is essential for a dynamic data center environment. But until now, it's been impossible between different generations of processors. Intel IT and End User Platform Integration have done so successfully with Intel® Virtualization Technology FlexMigration. This white paper explains how.
Affordable System x Express servers from IBM include features designed to keep your data safe and rapidly accessible. This e-kit includes white papers, datasheets and product guides for individual products, as well as overviews that help you compare systems and storage solutions so you can choose what works best for your business.
The System x3350 is a uniprocessor server that includes technology previously found only on multiprocessor servers. So you get enterprise-strength processing power that uses less energy and generates less heat. The tour includes an overview video, plus videos on market research, an airflow comparison, and a power comparison.
The IBM System x 3350 is a rack server designed for single-application hosting. This datasheet explains the details and benefits of the x3350, including its energy efficiency, high availability and outstanding performance, as well as the integrated systems management tools that help you manage complexity.
For workloads that traditionally require dual-processor systems, such as e-mail and collaboration, Web serving and Java-based applications, IBM offers the System x3350. It's also ideal for server deployments that require a dedicated server with high RAS features. For extensive details, download the product guide.
When the IBM System x3350 was compared directly with Dell's PowerEdge R300 under the new SPECpower ssj_ops/watt benchmark, the IBM server scored more than 15 percent better than the equivalent from Dell. See all the details in this special report.
As your data volume and value increases, reduce your risk with the IBM System Storage DS3400 Express. This direct-attach storage (DAS) or SAN solution is scalable and expandable to consolidate your data. It’s also flexible and affordable for small and midsize businesses. Get all the details at a glance in this data sheet.
Server technologies and storage technologies are converging, enabling a powerful new era of information on demand. IBM System Storage solutions are supporting companies’ green initiatives with energy efficient tools and technology that reduce cooling costs and take up less space. The solutions are also resilient enough to grow and adapt with you.
Small and mid-sized businesses are dealing with larger volumes of data than ever before, but without the big enterprise budgets. What they need are budget-stretching solutions that reduce the complexities of data storage while being easy to use.
With the IBM® System Storage™ DS3400 storage server, SAP customers can increase the efficiency of their storage infrastructure while reducing costs at the same time. This white paper describes the advantages of using the DS3400 storage server in an SAP® environment, and how to get the performance you need with the right layout for your SAP system.
Selecting the right server for your business-critical applications is an investment in the future of your business. This datasheet explores the IBM System x3650 server, and shows how it can save energy costs, help you manage growth and complexity, and protect valuable IT investments.
Energy use and environmental impact are hot topics right now. But it's not just the environment at stake, it's your IT budget. By "going green" with the energy efficient IBM System x servers featuring Intel Xeon processors, you can cut your energy costs by half and save floor space to make room for future growth.
