Modern Infrastructure University: Data Center Hardware
This classroom provides participants with guidance on the selection of modern high-capacity, enterprise-class servers to maximize virtualization and energy efficiency. It specifically addresses energy efficiency, blade/rack form factors, moving workloads to a new server and new approaches to server lifecycle management.
Lesson 1: This webcast will cover choosing an enterprise-class server, with details on energy efficiency, form factors, moving workloads and server lifecycles.
Lesson 2: The blade/rack tradeoff: How do the blade and rack form factors compare today, and how should organizations decide the best form factor?
Lesson 3: Tip: When it comes to server deployment and migration, it’s not enough to write a check and buy some servers. This article covers the important processes and considerations involved.
Lesson 4: Server lifecycle management isn’t as clear-cut as it used to be. As virtualization extends the life of physical servers, IT teams have to change their lifecycle management approach.
