Download this white paper to learn more about these notable findings from IDC's study of HP DC Service customers. HP Datacenter Care Service can reduce the costs of delivering mission-critical business processes by 23%. HP's Datacenter Care Service solution is able to reduce downtime by 88%, adding five hours of uptime annually to each internal user and $835,000 in revenue to each organization. Increasingly, x86 servers will need a higher level of operational support. On average, companies in this study were able to recognize an average ROI of 456% and pay back the initial investment in HP DC Service in six months.

Today, nearly every datacenter has become heavily virtualized. In fact, according to Gartner as many as 75% of X86 server workloads are already virtualized in the enterprise datacenter. Yet even with the growth rate of virtual machines outpacing the rate of physical servers, industry wide, most virtual environments continue to be protected by backup systems designed for physical servers, not the virtual infrastructure they are used on. Even still, data protection products that are virtualization-focused may deliver additional support for virtual processes, but there are pitfalls in selecting the right approach. This paper will discuss five common costs that can remain hidden until after a virtualization backup system has been fully deployed.

What happened to Moore’s Law? Why is Oracle releasing a new SPARC processor with fewer cores and threads? The SPARC S7’s core processors are 50 percent to 100 percent more efficient than x86 processors. SPARC S7 delivers up to 10 times more-efficient data analytics and machine learning than x86-based systems. The new SPARC S7 is available in servers, an engineered system, and a cloud service at the same price as the Oracle Cloud x86 Compute service. The SPARC S7 processor makes it possible to build powerful, scalable, and cost-effective systems be it for application scale-out, on premise or public cloud.

In 2013, Bon Ton Stores invested in upgrading IT, continuing to update and expand its eCommerce sites, and launching a new mobile site supporting delivery of promotions and online purchasing. A central aspect of this technology upgrade involved the replacement of an x86 server environment, supporting eCommerce with ten IBM® PowerLinux™ 7R2 servers and IBM PowerVM® running IBM WebSphere® Commerce on SUSE Linux operating systems. This case study highlights of some of the key aspects of this significant migration and its results, including how Bon-Ton IT executives support the business and what they prioritize, why they decided to make this move, what performance and capability resulted, and how it affected full data center costs and business resilience.

The challenges faced by midsize businesses remain daunting. An uncertain economic outlook, slow market growth and cost pressures continue to affect most industries. Yet, in most geographies, IT spending by midsize businesses is increasing. This report deals with this cost/benefit equation. Specifically, it compares the IBM i 7.1 operating system deployed on Power Systems with two alternatives: use of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008, and use of x86 Linux with Oracle Database 11g, both deployed on Intel-based servers.

Because of the outstanding economy, flexibility, and service levels it offers, virtualization is transforming data centers at breakneck speed: by 2016, an estimated 80 percent of the world's x86 servers will be Virtual Machines (VMs). But the speed of this transformation, along with the high resource utilization, ease of cloning, moving workloads, and other ways virtualization works its magic, raise challenges for “traditional” IT services and the teams that deliver them.

Companies that hope to stay competitive in the marketplace must begin to consider alternatives to x86, or else they will find themselves at a serious infrastructure disadvantage. Performance and flexibility embedded in the architecture can scale in a way that the number of servers can’t, as applications and data grow in depth and complexity.
