Intel Server Trends
The Intel-based server market is one of the most hotly contested segments in the industry. What are the key trends in this market, and what will they mean to

server hardware  statements to come from server vendors in 1999 were merely We will support Linux on some/all of our models , without any commitment to factory-install it.) Vendors will need to intensify their commitment to Linux, at least for the short term. We believe Linux will not go away in the next 1-2 years, so vendors should make the most of it, or cede that market to Dell and whomever else is willing to commit to Linux. Most hardware vendors have formed relationships with at least one or two Linux distributors.

Security Auditing In Microsoft SQL Server


As digital information has become more and more critical to businesses, firewalls—which once served as the walls of the fortress, have now become an archaic means of defense.

The Advantages of Enabling Order Execution in Hardware


The increasing volume of orders, pervasiveness of algorithmic trading systems and customer demand for lower latency are outpacing the capabilities of the software- and server-based systems sell-side firms use to do process trades in financial markets globally. This is causing many of these firms to experience lower trading performance, dissatisfied customers and high operational complexity and costs. This white paper looks at the disadvantages of traditional approaches to achieving the guaranteed messaging requirements of order execution and explains the benefits of solutions that perform message routing entirely in hardware.

Workload Automation: The Key to Managing Windows Server Sprawl


Many companies use data centers running processes across multiple Windows servers using built-in schedulers instead of automating nightly batch streams on a mainframe. Simple schedulers work well on individual servers with only a handful of tasks, but scheduling becomes more difficult once you include dependencies, such as incoming files, the behavior of other applications, or the completion of business processes on other servers. Workload automation using a job scheduling system can save money and reduce complexity in the long term—read this white paper to learn more about solutions to "server sprawl".
