It's not enough to respond to downtime; what's needed is a new mindset that focuses on preventing downtime.
This month, Dell pulled the trigger on two significant acquisitions. What's behind Dell's acquisition moves, and why does at least one of them seem like a no-brainer?
A new intelligent cloud network between data center and cloud is needed for efficient workload mobility.
Cloud computing isn't just "with us" -- it's here to stay, and IT spending on cloud services is expected to explode.
IT is looking to cut costs. One way is to outsource data center tasks. We take a closer look at a state-of-the-art site in Europe to learn what features are most important to IT and how investments in renewable resources are paying off.
How a cloud solution solved performance and complexity issues and returned an impressive ROI.
A remodel of a data center created unique challenges. We examine the success factors of a project at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
When it comes to IT infrastructure, having a lot of muscle is good, but making intelligent use of all that muscle is even better. When it comes to internal clouds, a brain is key.
One way to do more with less is to outsource tasks, including some components of your data center. What help and benefits can you expect from third-party providers, and what work should remain on premises?
New servers deliver real-time power data, but it’s difficult to uncover.
As more applications and data make their way to the cloud or are impacted by virtualization, data centers must adapt. The hybrid data center environment brings together the best of all worlds: cloud, virtualization, hardware, and co-lo.
During 2011, data centers became more virtualized in a migration to cloud-based architectures, which began to reveal previously-hidden problems with power. In 2012 this trend will continue and even accelerate, further elevating the importance of power for IT.
Can the gulf between development and operations be bridged?
Moving to the clouds doesn’t mean resources must be let go.
Windows on the Big Blue's hardware is almost here.
A new push by partners Cisco and Citrix might encourage IT organizations to take a serious look at desktop virtualization.
New workloads account for almost one-third of MIPS growth, and mainframers are as optimistic as ever about the future of Big Iron.
The use of proprietary mainframe servers continues to decline -- for everybody but IBM. System z, in fact, is doing just fine. The rest of the mainframe field? Not so much.
Remember all the talk about runaway data center electricity consumption? As it turns out, it might have been overblown -- perhaps even alarmist.
Are vADCs a wholesale replacements for pADCs? Can't these application delivery controllers co-exist?
