"It departments are under constant pressure to decrease time-to-data that drives business decisions and allows quick reaction to new market opportunities. Exponential database growth has led to a performance and availability crisis for business critical applications that cannot be solved with software tuning. The problem is I/O and can be solved only by increased I/O through a combination of more powerful servers and a breakthrough in storage performance.
Please join us on this webcast to introduce you to a new, integrated high performance database solution from HP, Violin Memory and Red Hat that solves the I/O issues for business-critical OLTP and BI/DW applications."
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
