previous limitation of four CPUs for the Intel architecture.) 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,

It Takes More Than a Fast CPU to Rule the Web

Alpha CPU history indicates that the machine will perform well, although the per-transaction cost (i.e., in a transaction processing situation, or a large database scenario) will likely be high. For example, when running the TPC-H benchmark test (for decision support environments where users don't know which queries will be executed against a database system [Source: TPCC]), the IBM RS/6000 exhibited a greater than 3:1 price/performance advantage over the previous large
IBM's Four-CPU Wintel-Based Rack Servers High Performance, High Cost

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

Risks, Managing Measures: Decision Support Methodologies in Business Part 2 : Decision Aids Executive Summary When it comes to making decisions using some tool that purports to measure value, it is wise to know something about the tool and what it is measuring, as well as why. Poor measurement methods contribute at least in part to project failures and corporate inefficiencies that can take off millions or more from bottom lines and poor technology selections alone have contributed to tens of

Cooling Solutions to Support High-density Server Deployment High-density servers offer a significant performance per-watt benefit. However, they can present a significant cooling challenge. Most data centers are designed to cool an average of no more than 2 kilowatts per rack, but many new servers demand over 40. Thus, innovative strategies must be used to properly cool high-density equipment. Read about 10 approaches that can help increase cooling efficiency in your data center.

When, Why, and How of ERP Support for Lean Certain lean initiatives can be hugely strengthened with a synergistic enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation—and vice versa. In other cases, the two efforts should be viewed as separate initiatives. But it doesn’t depend on “what you want”: specific lean initiatives will fail if specific ERP aspects are neglected. However, other lean initiatives and ERP functionality have little in common.
