RISC/UNIX servers for database applications were never intended to meet the demands of the efficiency and scalability that today’s organizations demand. Concerns regarding the expense of the OS’s proprietary hardware, however, are leading IT professionals to consider embarking on Unix-to-Linux migrations — and advancements in x86 servers like HP’s DL980 are easing the transition to platforms like Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.
SAP HANA has become a mission-critical application in many organizations but choosing the proper hardware option to optimize performance is essential. A prebuilt and integrated appliance like HP AppSystems for SAP HANA, based on industry-leading HP DL980 servers, can accelerate solution deployment, providing a highly supportable architecture, and minimizing any unplanned downtime.
Every day, roughly 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created. Often referred to as “Big Data,” these data sets can be so large and complex that organizations can no longer effectively store, search, share, or analyze them with current database management tools. However, “in-memory computing” solutions such as the DL980 are an ideal platform for supporting this initiative.
s the reality of virtual and cloud environments comes to life and the need for highly reliable infrastructure increases, many IT professionals are re-thinking server choices. Platforms with greater levels of scalability and reliability are essential, as is the ability to more effectively meet the demands of “Big Data” and the new class of Enterprise applications.
One of the most common IT buzzwords is “Big Data.” The question is, what are the business benefits and value to your organization. This video shows how HP brings the benefits of Big Data to life and to the benefit of your organization.
The competitive nature of today’s business is extreme. And one of the most important demands on the business is the ability to move fast. In many cases, the ability to change is driven by the speed at which you can understand key information. Many times underpowered or obsolete systems make this time-consuming or impossible. Fast IT Infrastructure is critical

Are you considering an x86 server for a new business-critical application, or are you thinking of migrating an existing Unix RISC application to x86? x86 systems and CPU technology have evolved rapidly over the last several years and this platform is now capable of running workloads previously associated with larger proprietary UNIX systems. In addition, both Windows and Linux, the principal operating environments for these servers, have matured to the point where the combination of x86 server and these OS' can handle workloads associated with the largest UNIX systems from as little as three years ago.
Tune into this live webcast with our guest Forrester analyst Richard Fichera as he speaks to the underlying trends driving modern infrastructure, when to consider moving from Unix to Windows or Linux changing principal operating environments, what to look for in an x86 platform and porting guidance. Rich will be joined by two IT executives who will share their business challenges, their decision-making process, and the business benefits they have achieved with their chosen database server solution, followed by a live Q & A.

Many financial institutions recognize that they still do not have sufficient data management, infrastructure, or staffing in place to address all the issues brought about by the myriad of risk regulations. While larger banks continue to struggle with the qualitative aspects of supervisory stress testing and capital planning, IFRS 9 and the new CECL accounting standard will demand greater interconnection of Finance and Risk, more complex modeling, and increased public disclosure. Heightened expectations of strong model risk management and governance further strain organizations.
To address these challenges, institutions are reexamining existing processes with a goal to establish a more efficient and controlled modeling environment—including model implementation and lifecycle management, orchestration, and governance. How can financial institutions ensure they have the foundational building blocks in place to meet these increasing demands?
