What’s All This Benchmark Stuff, Anyway?
Vendors love to quote benchmarks in their product literature, press releases, and any place they think someone will use the numbers to make a buying decision
performance figures for the CPU and CPU subsystem. Another attempt at meaningful benchmarks was FLOPS ( FL oating-point OP erations per S econd), which rated processor speed. Computer manufacturers often quoted their systems as XX megaFLOPS (MFLOPS) or YY gigaFLOPS (GFLOPS). However, as users came to realize that FLOPS is an incomplete measure of system performance, other benchmarks were developed by groups such as the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (referred to as SPEC), a consortium

Buyer's Guide to Enterprise Storage Resources
Organizations of all sizes face similar challenges when managing storage@not enough capacity or protection. Help has arrived with Internet small computer system
encryption that eats host CPU cycles. Sun offers the StorageTek Crypto-Ready T10000 tape drive, which supports a variety of operating systems, including z/OS, Solaris and Windows. The enterprise products don't come cheap. The Sun product costs $37,000, plus a $5,000 charge to turn on the encryption feature. The IBM product is $35,000. Encryption appliances like those from Decru Inc. (now owned by Network Appliance Inc.), NeoScale Systems Inc. and Vormetric Inc., as well as upcoming LTO-4 drives will be

Comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence Solutions
For many companies, traditional business intelligence (BI) software is costly and resource-intensive. So are open source alternatives that require significant
amount of memory and CPU needed. Should any high-availability requirements exist, a secondary server must be clustered with the primary one to ensure failover and recovery. Active versus passive clustering can add more expense and complexity for the benefit of uptime. A sufficient number of front-end web servers are required to shoulder the end-user load. The more interactive end users, the the greater the demand will be on the web server. These machines must be relatively high end to handle concurrency.
The Advantage of Process Oriented versus Modular Structured ERPs
Functionality comparisons for different enterprise resource planning (ERP) modules from different vendors often leads to unbalanced disparities among their
Advantage of Process Oriented versus Modular Structured ERPs Functionality comparisons for different enterprise resource planning (ERP) modules from different vendors often leads to unbalanced disparities among their approaches, which in turn makes it hard to properly evaluate the solution. On the other hand, a process-oriented ERP system is much easier to evaluate, and its degree of match with company needs is visible from the beginning.

How to Overcome the Limits of Enterprise Software
Is your enterprise software really making you more competitive? After all, for years you’ve had to make expensive trade-offs between application dependability
strategic applications are frequently CPU- and/or data-intensive, and are also time-critical in nature. The combination of CPU/data-intensive and time-critical requires that the applications exhibit both scalability and dependability, a tall order that many traditional approaches fail to successfully or cost-effectively meet. In addition, agile enterprises also require that their strategic applications keep pace with the change of business. A new type of software-based application environment - the

Bus-Tech Speeds up Mainframe DB2 Access
Bus-Tech has announced the EnterpriseExpress Adapter for DB2 Access. The product is a PCI-compliant ESCON adapter using IBM's Multipath Channel+ (MPC+) protocol
speed, and reduces mainframe CPU cycles by as much as 63%. The adapter was tested with DB2 CAE (Client Application Enabler) clients accessing data on DB2 for OS/390 V6.1 running on OS/390 V2R6 and VTAM Version 4.4. MPC+ is IBM's fastest host communication channel protocol. User Recommendations Customers using DB2 on a mainframe for their back-end database should strongly consider an ESCON connection. In addition, TCP/IP should be considered as the protocol of choice instead of SNA. With the recent

Dell Updates Its Appliance Line
As part of a far-reaching strategy to grab a large share of Internet infrastructure computing, Dell has announced three new appliance server models.
Dell believes that a single-CPU system is sufficiently powerful to drive xSP-type applications, with the bottleneck being the network. IBM believes that for heavy-duty Web applications, dual-CPU systems provide a more robust and powerful infrastructure. We advise customers to test these contentions for themselves before committing large amounts of money to revamping (or building up) their infrastructure. For example, back-end loaded (e.g., calculation/processing-intense) sites might benefit more from a

AMD Earnings Beat the Street! Intel Earnings Beat the Street?
Both Intel and AMD announced earnings that handily beat Wall Street estimates – on the surface. Do the numbers symbolize a new trend in the CPU market?
two, everyone thought the CPU wars were over, with Intel the victor. Cyrix was just about dead, and AMD looked like all it could do was deliver lower-priced Intel-like processors. Although AMD's revenues are still only a fraction of Intel's ($1.1B vs. $8B for the quarter), their growth rate is currently greater than Intel's. Intel and AMD have also been going through rounds of aggressive price cuts, with the end-users reaping the benefits. Even with the price cuts on the Athlon CPU et al., AMD is
