In stark contrast to a few years ago, IT executives now rank power and cooling among their top concerns. As IT continues to support more servers, power and cooling have become limiting factors to the number of data center servers. However, there is a solution. Blade server thermal technology optimizes power and cooling while improving energy monitoring—real benefits that reduce the overall IT total cost of ownership (TCO).

Enabling Real-Time Big Data Movement in the Constantly Connected World

Many forces in today's world of big data are driving applications to become more real-time. Data needs to go many places, be sorted and stored in different formats, and used in a wide variety of ways. Capturing high volume data streams inside and outside datacenters can be complicated and expensive using traditional software messaging middleware on general purpose servers. In order to realize the full value of “big data” some organizations are switching to real-time message-oriented middleware appliances... Read More
