Dell's 8-CPU Intel Servers Increasing Its Enterprise Focus
Dell began shipping its eight-CPU Intel server, the PowerEdge 8450, in late September. This comes on the heels of Compaq's shipment of its ProLiant 8000 and

The PE 8450 is based on Intel's OCPRF100 server (also known as Saber ), which Dell has modified to improve its serviceability and to add an improved peripheral bay. This product is geared toward the enterprise computing segment. As with most enterprise-class servers, the 8450 must be racked, and needs other hardware (primarily disk drives) to support its configuration. This product is aimed at the large datacenter/data warehouse environments,

Compaq's 8-CPU Intel Servers: the New "Big Iron"


Compaq started shipping its eight-CPU Intel servers, the ProLiant 8000 and 8500, in late August. These are the first true eight-way Intel servers to ship.

cpu fans  s 8-CPU Intel Servers: the New Big Iron Product Background In late August, 1999, Compaq started shipments of its eight-CPU Intel servers, the ProLiant 8000 and 8500. The ProLiant 8X00 series is part of the next generation of Intel servers (along with offerings from Dell, HP, IBM, and others) which utilize the Profusion chipset. (This chipset allows servers to break through the previous limitation of four CPUs for the Intel architecture.) Although both products are geared toward the enterprise Read More

IBM's Four-CPU Wintel-Based Rack Servers High Performance, High Cost


IBM's four-CPU servers, the Netfinity 5500 M20 and 7000 M10, yield top notch web-focused benchmark figures, but also very high price/performance figures for mainstream applications.

Vendor Recommendations 5500 M20: The 5500 M20 is a fairly standard, middle-of-the-road system, with the exception of its unusual size. IBM should consider reducing the system chassis to 7U. Since it takes a year or so to redesign a chassis, IBM should play up the performance aspects of the 5500 (in the meantime), an area where Read More

Compaq's High-End Wintel-based Rack Servers - Working Hard to Stay #1


Compaq Computer Corporation, the #1 volume manufacturer of PC Servers, both US and worldwide, is fighting a strong challenge by Dell Computer. This note assess the strengths and weaknesses of its four-CPU rackmount servers.

cpu fans  who want lots of CPU power in a small box, will find the 6400R a good choice. The 5500R is better suited to high-performance and general-purpose computing, and for customers who want excellent price/performance. Because the 5500R has only five I/O slots available, the customer should consider using this point as a bargaining tool when considering HP as the alternate vendor. If the user absolutely needs more than five I/O slots, the 5500R becomes much less desirable - and a point customers should consider Read More

Oracle Extends Oracle EBS with Endeca


Oracle paid a hefty price for Endeca Technologies in late 2011, but in addition to the product’s standalone sales, the up- and cross-sales opportunities in Oracle’s install base that can still come from Endeca’s big data capabilities seem immense. Thus far, Oracle’s retail and customer service solutions have benefited from Endeca’s information discovery capabilities. Most recently, to help

Endeca’s information discovery approach is much easier for regular business users than extensive querying/reporting or building online analytical processing (OLAP) cubes. Endeca extensions are available for Oracle EBS R12.1.3 , the latest currently available release, which has thousands of customers actively working today. Read More

Best Practices for a Data Warehouse on Oracle Database 11g


Companies are recognizing the value of an enterprise data warehouse (EDW) that provides a single 360-degree view of the business. But to ensure that your EDW performs and scales well, you need to get three things right: the hardware configuration, the data model, and the data loading process. Learn how designing these three things correctly can help you scale your EDW without constantly tuning or tweaking the system.

cpu fans  components - from the CPU to the disks - are orchestrated to work together to guarantee the maximum possible IO throughput. But how do you go about sizing such a system? You must first understand how much throughput capacity is required for your system and how much throughput each individual CPU or core in your configuration can drive. Both pieces of information can be determined from an existing system. However, if no environment specific values are available, a value of approximately 200MB/sec IO Read More

Gateway, Jilted by Intel, Kisses and Makes Up with AMD


Gateway has blamed Intel for its recent quarterly losses, due to Intel's inability to meet Gateway's demand requirements.

As Gateway officials announced late Wednesday that the company's fourth-quarter earnings would fail to meet expectations, they also strongly hinted that the company would be seeking an alternative chip supplier. The financial warning, the officials said, was due in large part to Gateway's inability to obtain needed processors and Read More

The Marriage of Virtual Machines, Software as a Service, and Cloud Computing

VM allows IT departments to go green. Another benefit, somewhat related, is in the application of patches to the operating system or Read More

Clientele CRM.NET Suite Gains Scalability, Smart Client from the .NET Framework and XML Web Services


When The Clientele Group of Epicor Software Corporation was faced with scalability and performance limits in their CRM software, they redesigned their application around the Microsoft® .NET Framework. A server architecture based on SQL Server™ 2000 and XML Web services removes their scalability limits, and supports multiple client applications. A smart client built with Windows® Forms gives customer support personnel a responsive application that is easy to deploy and update. A Web portal built with ASP.NET Web Forms gives authorized customers access to the same records as customer support sees internally. The new architecture can support 500 users on a single dual-CPU server, and offers many ways to scale up and out.
