Whether faced with the task of accommodating more users, consolidating datacenters, increasing virtualization, improving uptime, or just improving response times, the task of evaluating and implementing all of the required technology can prove both arduous and frustrating. A number of vendors have joined together to provide pre-defined rack level solutions of best-of-breed hardware along with software optimized to work on that configuration. The Vblock from VCE and FlexPod from NetApp + Cisco are but two examples of these “converged” systems. They typically are deployed entire racks at a time. A benefit of converged systems is that the buyer does not have to know as much about the internal workings of the various pieces of the system in order to have a rapid and successful deployment.

"The Enterprise Strategy Group put HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure through its paces in a series of hands-on performance and stress tests simulating real-world configurations and load conditions. Read this report to learn how an HPE SimpliVity infrastructure: Ran nine workloads simultaneously, with an average response time across all applications of 3.9ms Showed little to no performance impact as a virtual controller, drive, and node were systematically failed on a two-node cluster."

Application release automation (ARA) tools enable best practices in deploying and promoting applicationrelated artifacts, properties, configurations and even data across an application lifecycle in a safe, predictable and repeatable manner. Gartner reports that using an ARA tool is key to enabling DevOps and achieving continuous delivery. Wikipedia also defines five dimensions of scalability that can apply to ARA tools: • Administrative scalability • Functional scalability • Geographic scalability • Load scalability • Generational scalability This white paper will explain how each of these criteria is relevant when choosing an ARA product that is capable of scaling along with the growth of your enterprise.

Challenge Some SAP systems can take up to 10 days to complete a SAP system copy. That’s 10 days of unproductive time. Why? SAP does not provide the necessary tools out-of-the-box to automate and handle the process efficiently. This means you must use highly skilled SAP BASIS staff to manage the process. Manual steps, along with hundreds of configuration settings, can take days to complete—and like many organizations, you have also experienced too many delays, causing non-production systems to be unavailable, which stalls development, testing and training activities. Opportunity So you’ve concluded your SAP system copy process is hindering innovation and productivity. You’re considering automating the process to ensure system copies are available for all environments on time, every time. Benefits What are the key capabilities you actually need to address SAP system copy inefficiency once and for all?

it’s crucial to make the right choices when setting up your DSE cloud infrastructure. But how can you know which instance types will give you the best cost-to-benefit ratio, both now and as your business grows? That’s where benchmarking helps. For our paper, we conducted DSE stress tests on an array of hardware configurations, and we simulated various real-world workflows, all to see which EC2 instance types deliver the best performance at the lowest costs.

Configuration Management is at the heart of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) and forms the foundation for Business Service Management (BSM). In fact, it is safe to say that neither the ITIL IT Service Management (ITSM) processes nor the BSM functions that leverage ITSM can be efficiently carried out without accurate configuration and dependency information.
