Intel Small Server Market


Who are the key players in the market segment of Intel small servers? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each, and when is one more appropriate than another?

server rack enclosures  years old. Although the server market is less energetic than the desktop market, this is still a long time. Even the LPr is 18 months old - when it first appeared, it had a groundbreaking feature set, but now it is getting to be just one of the crowd. Marketing/Website Issues Normally we wouldn't comment on this, but: HP's marketing people need to be more attentive to the image the NetServer section of the website presents. We don't know if it's the take-no-prisoners marketing hyperbole, or if it's Read More

Server Appliances - "Caching" In on Internet's Growth


"Server Appliances" are a relatively new, fast-growing segment within the Server market. These systems are designed to perform one or two functions very well, without the overhead of a general-purpose server.

Challenges CacheFlow For the 5000 series: Performance and price/performance: In Web Polygraph testing in July, '99, the CacheFlow 5000 could only reach ~10 requests/second/K$, one third of Dell's , and approximately one half of NetApp's NetCache. CacheFlow improved these numbers to approximately 12.7 rps/K$, but this figure moves it past only Cobalt. Cobalt Networks For the RaQ2 series: Performance: Presently focused only on low-end environments. Compaq For the Read More

IBM Netfinity Server Division


IBM’s Intel-based Netfinity servers currently hold third place in the server wars with Dell and Compaq. What are their chances for improving their position?

server rack enclosures  high end of the server market is moving toward a majority of systems being rack-mounted. Since equipment racks have a finite amount of vertical space, density of CPUs and general functionality is important. Netfinity servers in general are larger than similar offerings from competitors, leading to reduced density of CPUs and functionality in a rack. In years past, IBM was the 800-pound gorilla in the computer world. In recent years, they have suffered some stunning defeats, including the effective Read More

The Advantages of Row- and Rack-oriented Cooling Architectures for Data Centers


The traditional room-oriented approach to data center cooling has limitations in next-generation data centers. Next-generation data centers must adapt to changing requirements, support high and variable power density, and reduce power consumption and other operating costs. Find out how row- and rack-oriented cooling architectures reduce total cost of ownership (TCO), and address the needs of next-generations data centers.

server rack enclosures  data center reviews , server architecture solutions , data center equipment , Executive Summary Room cooling is an ineffective approach for next-generation data centers. Latest generation high density and variable density IT equipment create conditions that room cooling was never intended to address, resulting in cooling systems that are inefficient, unpredictable, and low in power density. Row-oriented and rack-oriented cooling architectures have been developed to address these problems. This paper Read More

HP’s LT 6000r Six-CPU Server


HP has re-entered the enterprise computing race with the release of its LT 6000r, a six-CPU server with improved performance and excellent transactional price/performance.

Although the IBM Netfinity 4000R and the Compaq ProLiant DL360 can provide more total CPUs in a 42U rack - 84 CPUs - those products are aimed more at ISPs and ASPs, and less toward enterprise computing. As with the server market in general, this market will continue to grow, although a little slower than the market for very thin (1U and 2U) servers, and slower than server appliances. We expect the six-CPU product to take away some market Read More

Expand Accelerators Datasheet: How to Use WAN Optimization to Solve the Server Consolidation Challenge


Delivering access to applications over the wide area networks (WANs) is now an essential aspect of any IT strategy to reduce total cost of ownership and improve return on investment. For example, server-based computing and server consolidation strategies can remove servers out of the branch offices to consolidate and centralize them in the data center, usually based on a virtualization infrastructure.

PeopleSoft on Client/Server and Database Issues


To address questions for a TEC customer, we interviewed PeopleSoft's Michael Daniels. The conversation covered issues in the areas of client/server architecture and database management as they relate to the PeopleSoft Enterprise Resource Planning suite of products.

PeopleSoft has found that this random approach is also effective for load balancing. This method of configuration would also make the process automatic once the configuration file has been built on the client. TEC Analysis: This approach should be effective for both load balancing and fault tolerance. It is significantly different than the approach taken by SAP, where a central Read More
