When is it time to buy a new server - and what exactly do you need? Whether you've made this decision already or someone else has tasked you with the assignment, buying a new server for your IT department can be a long process. There are a number of different types, models and options, including blade centers, freestanding floor models, 1U rack mounts and more - not to mention your options if you’re considering a virtual or cloud-based environment.
And that's just scratching the surface: There are myriad options to consider, including packaging, functionality, interoperability, performance, availability, survivability, capacity, energy efficiency and the economics associated with servers to navigate.
This e-book will guide you through these complex efforts by covering three components: determining needs and requirements, understanding your options, and putting it all together.
