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

Richard Fichera, VP & Principal Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. with IT Execs from Paycor & Monterey Peninsula College
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.

Representatives from a range of established KMIP Key Management server vendors answer questions from the moderators and from the audience on various aspects of encryption, standardized key management via KMIP and some of the deployment issues and opportunities brought about through enterprise key management.
As Cybersecurity shifts from the “best practice” environment to being mandated by regulations and prioritized by the high costs for data breaches, IT groups and data center operators are facing multiple challenges. One of these challenges is how to address the security of a mix of legacy storage devices, unencrypted devices, encrypted devices, new technology storage and eDrives in a single environment. Yet another challenge is how to construct a robust, trusted identity-based authentication (or role-based authentication or as a matter of coming the two) to fend off malware and Trojan infection. A system solution that can simplify the security management of mixed drives with high valued data content will be presented. The solution has at least one smart hardware interface controller that performs all security features internally while offers in-line cryptographic performance without degrading data rate.
