  • Tutorial: Microsoft Hyper-V Server R2 on BladeCenter S

    For those of you that are missing the Microsoft basics it would be beneficial to set the stage. Right now Microsoft is shipping the first version of their hypervisor (Hyper-V) by means of two different "channels". The first one is as a component (or role) of their Microsoft Windows Server 2008 products. You can enable or disable this role in either a normal (GUI based) Windows Server 2008 install or a core (Gui-less) Windows Server 2008 install.

  • Performance & Remote Access of Virtualized Applications

    Enterprises have come full circle. In the 1990s, data center computing gave way to distributed computing.

  • Brocade HBA

    As the number of virtual servers sharing the physical FC HBA ports of a VOE server increase, SAN fan-out is no longer just a switch issue: SAN fan-out becomes a server HBA issue that mandates holistic management of SAN infrastructure from switches to HBAs.

  • Integration: The Key to the Cloud

    Over the past two years virtualization technologies have firmly taken hold in the data center by proving their value and worth as production capable application and server platforms.

    Like many organizations, Littelfuse has a fast growing environment and has had a difficult time keeping up with the established network and system service level agreements (SLAs).

  • Cloud 2009 and Beyond: Customers Require Management Visibility and Automation

    Cloud discussions are hot, but often the definition of what a "cloud provider" is creates confusion. Essentially there are two types of cloud providers: internal and external. Internal clouds provide IT service offerings delivered by IT organizations from their own self-service-based portals, infrastructure and staff. External cloud offerings are delivered from third party providers, on-demand, from their cloud infrastructure.
