How Do You Categorize Servers?
The term 'PC Server' encompasses a wide range of computing hardware features and functionality. So, how can the entire range be subdivided into more manageable

linux servers rackmount  (for both Wintel and Unix/Linux-based systems) is predicted to grow to $8 Billion by 2003. [Source: IDC]. Segment Definitions For the purposes of this document, we will use the definitions below. (Over time, these definitions have changed, and will continue to change, and we expect that segments will consolidate.) Refer to Graph 1 for approximate user quantity vs. segment map.

Case Study: Protecting Servers and VMs while Preserving Uptime


Quantros, an application service provider (ASP), required a secure network and maximal uptime, but with a small IT department and a small budget. The challenges were to implement and enforce sound security policies and to keep up with the stream of vendor patches. A server solution that fixes vulnerabilities at the root cause and eliminates the need to hastily install patches increased server protection. Find out how.

Strategies for Deploying Blade Servers in Existing Data Centers


Blade servers have a major advantage over traditional ones—improving processing ability while using less power per server. But, with their smaller footprint, blades can be much more densely packed, resulting in racks that use up to 20 times the electrical power and generate up to 20 times the heat. This can stress power and cooling system capability. Learn how to create a power and cooling strategy with these guidelines.
