Many companies take advantage of virtual servers for the dual benefits of cost effectiveness and scalability. But when the time comes to move data to a virtual server—or between virtual environments—a lack of preparation can mean extra costs, or worse, lost data.
This webinar will cover best practices around managing data in a virtual environment, and offer key watchouts for those who are newer to virtual servers. We’ll also offer pro tips and expert advice for data migration involving virtual environments, with ways to keep the operation as simple as possible and avoid common pitfalls. And we’ll even show you how you can automate most of the process.
Client/server software like Subversion can be a black box to administrators, making it hard to identify the root cause of performance problems. In this session, we'll outline common issues and provide step-by-step instructions to help you find and eliminate bottlenecks quickly.
• Understanding Subversion's operative model
• Typical scenarios to test
• Typical benchmarking pitfalls
• Best-case results as a reference
According to IDC, only IBM Power Systems servers are designed specifically to work with data-intensive workloads such as SAP HANA.
Organizations that have the most to gain using SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems are:
