Strategies for Deploying Blade Servers in Existing Data Centers


Blade servers have a major advantage over traditional ones—improving processing ability while using less power per server. But, with their smaller footprint, blades can be much more densely packed, resulting in racks that use up to 20 times the electrical power and generate up to 20 times the heat. This can stress power and cooling system capability. Learn how to create a power and cooling strategy with these guidelines.

Application Performance Starts with Database Performance Analysis


Application performance management (APM) tools have helped create a new corporate culture of continuous performance monitoring and improvement. But these tools generally tend to focus on application-level issues, while database and infrastructure-related issues go undetected.

This white paper examines the gap in the monitoring capabilities of traditional APM tools, which so often fail to identify the true root of problems, particularly as production performance issues often lie in the relational databases that run the majority of enterprise applications.

This paper also introduces a subcategory of APM solutions—application database performance management (ADPM) tools—that aims to give a unified perspective of a system’s overall performance. Read the report to discover the benefits of putting an ADPM tool in place and help you build a business case.
