Just “keeping the lights on” in the server room is highly complex and largely inefficient. Maintaining IT infrastructure, system interdependencies, and application interoperability tie up valuable personnel and resources. The old way of simply throwing more hardware capacity at a problem can only serve to increase the complexity and further dampen productivity. In a perfect world, the infrastructure—hardware and software—would have been built as an integrated but scalable unit from the ground up. In our world, though, the best new systems combine independent pieces of IT infrastructure to form simplified computing platforms, freeing up IT to focus on business innovation rather than infrastructure management. Welcome to the new world of IT.

Integrated Computing (IC), also known as Converged Infrastructure, stands to revolutionize everything about IT. IC takes all of virtualization, storage, networking, and compute into a single system and allows total infrastructure oversight through one console. As you can imagine, the improvements in ease of use, agility, and efficiency are quite substantial. This is essential because infrastructure maintenance devours about three-fourths of annual IT budgets. IC changes all of that, delivering high efficiency solutions for the lifecycle of system,reducing costs and freeing up valuable personnel. The evolution of IT awaits.

Overcoming IT’s operational challenges based on infrastructure complexity is a serious issue.Not only is a piecemeal architecture difficult and inefficient to manage, but it is also very expensive when the Total Cost of Ownership is considered. Reducing that complexity not only frees up personnel but also budgetary resources. Converged Infrastructure offers the opportunity for organizations to drastically increase their IT and user productivity at a significantly lower TCO. Improved IT efficiency and agility accelerates time to value by a significant margin. See a simpler, more efficient infrastructure here.

The rapid increases in computing power described by Moore’s Law offer theoretical advantages for IT organizations—but it’s market competition that translates those benefits into real value. As vendors battle for market share, costs are falling for every part of the desktop virtualization architecture. Meanwhile, desktop virtualization technology itself is advancing quickly, providing new ways to enable business mobility and enabling the flexibility that people and organizations need to thrive. This trend is a double win for customers—better solutions at a lower cost—and it’s making the benefits of a service-based approach to IT available to any organization.

Enterprises are increasingly adopting Linux as a secure, reliable and high-performing platform that lowers acquisition and operating costs while providing the agility needed to anticipate and react to changing business conditions. In particular, the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating environment, which is based on the Linux open-source kernel, has become widely deployed by medium-sized and large businesses, by enterprises in their data centers, and in private and public cloud infrastructures. RHEL is distributed and supported by Red Hat Inc., the world’s largest provider of open-source software solutions, accounting for 74.7% of worldwide Linux operating system (OS) revenue. As a development and deployment platform, RHEL offers an efficient, scalable and robust operating environment with certified security and flexible deployment options in physical and virtualized environments.

You are being buried by data. Multimedia including videos, audio and photos. Unstructured data in presentations, documents and social media feeds. Even the voicemails and databases that used to be the primary residents of your storage system are growing beyond your ability to manage them effectively. How can you keep it all under control without buying an endless stream of disk and storage devices? Experts from EMC and other leading storage manufacturers discuss the very latest trends in storage solutions and how an effective application of storage strategy can help tame the information beast and keep performance and availability issues at bay. Attendees will learn: - What are the hidden drivers in storage growth - How businesses of all sizes can benefit from a tiered storage strategy - Why virtualization is penetrating every level of IT - What role SSD and flash will play in every storage environment - What to do now to improve storage utilization and save costs

We now live in a flash centric world where all active data must be on flash. This doesn’t mean, however, that all data must be on flash. The best approach is to understand your application mix and workload requirements. Some key apps, like databases, are latency intolerant and should be pinned to flash. Others apps can benefit from fully-automated storage tiering. EMC’s market leading VMAX and VNX systems are flexible choices that can deliver all-flash and hybrid services. CDW and EMC has you covered!

Leading organizations don’t think of data protection in traditional back-office terms—and that’s no accident. They think and act like service providers, and in doing so transform data protection operations from mere cost centers to business enablers. Traditional data protection architectures can’t meet today’s challenges of massive growth, application performance, and data availability. And they aren't designed for services-oriented business models.

Every ten to fifteen years, the types of workloads servers host swiftly shift. This happened with the first single-mission mainframes and today, as disruptive technologies appear in the form of big data, cloud, mobility and security. When such a shift occurs, legacy servers rapidly become obsolete, dragging down enterprise productivity and agility. Fortunately, each new server shift also brings its own suite of enabling technologies, which deliver new economies of scale and entire new computational approaches. In this interview, long-time IT technologist Mel Beckman talks to HP Server CTO for ISS Americas Tim Golden about his take on the latest server shift, innovative enabling technologies such as software-defined everything, and the benefit of a unified management architecture. Tim discusses key new compute technologies such as HP Moonshot, HP BladeSystem, HP OneView and HP Apollo, as well as the superiority of open standards over proprietary architectures for scalable, cost-effect
