In the IT world virtualization deployments have become more and more prevalent. The skepticism about running your file server, mail server, or website on virtual machines is long gone. CIOs now look for server platforms that can host their virtual machines reliably and provide the reliability with high performance. While many can claim to have the best server platform for virtualization environments only HP has the results on industry standard benchmarks to back up this claim.
It’s official—the proliferation of compute devices is staggering; with compute pretty much everywhere you look these days – just a bit different than when I was a teen.
In today’s data centers, server deployment can be time consuming and problematic. In the past, you needed multiple tools to setup and deploy a server, requiring hours to get a server up and running. In the here and now, IT admins need tools that simplify and automate the process so they can spend more time on strategic initiatives that benefit the business.
So who of you are NOT planning to increase the amount of compute and storage capacity to your data center over the next year or so? No one? I thought so.
Well as the number, complexity and required performance of applications increase I bet you’re all finding that the space, power and cooling capacity required to host the additional systems is at a premium.
