By now, much has been written about the advantages server virtualization brings to an enterprise. In the June 2013 survey, 63% of all companies and 100% of large enterprises reported having a server virtualization program. However, when you segment the virtualization rates, you find a trend that indicates that large enterprises in particular are not gaining all of the advantages that server virtualization has to offer. What is more difficult and remains a challenge, particularly for large enterprises, is virtualizing Tier 1 applications. These are large, mission-critical enterprise applications such as email, customer relationship management (CRM), or enterprise resource planning (ERP). These applications tend to be very large, consume the entire capacity of a current generation server, and require high application uptimes. As shown in Figure 1, the virtualization rates for these applications are far lower than Tier 2 apps. In this eBook, you’ll learn how the NEC enterprise server provides a platform that now gives customers the right platform to virtualize their Tier 1 apps.

A few years ago, two technologies emerged to dramatically improve the industry’s ability to protect data. The cost of disk drives came down, and deduplication technology was introduced. This breakthrough is sometimes referred to as Deduplication 1.0. Like any technology, you’d expect it to evolve over time. HP launched the HP StoreOnce deduplication technology roadmap in 2010 to do just that. The result? Deduplication 2.0 or what HP calls “Federated Deduplication”. This next generation deduplication addresses some of the issues inherent in existing deduplication solutions: performance, flexibility, and data management and not only that, when moving from your legacy storage backup systems, you can reduce the amount of your stored backup data by 95 percent or we’ll make up the difference with free disk capacity and support.

Refresh and reset are powerful additions to the arsenal of recovery tools found in Windows 8. Resetting reverts a machine back to a base image of the initial installation; refreshing a machine is a little less drastic in that it keeps some applications, and more importantly, keeps all user data safe while still fully cleansing a PC of many troublesome issues.
