09 Nov RESEARCH PAPER: AMD EPYC Presents Opportunity To Save On Software Licensing Costs

Post Image

Software licensing models for many server applications have long been tied to the hardware infrastructure resources on which they are run, particularly server processor resources. As server processor architectures have evolved, software licensing models have evolved with them. The software licensing model evolution has varied widely by software vendor, both in their types of changes […]

10 Oct RESEARCH BRIEF: Dell Technologies Doubles Down On Enabling IoT Intelligence

Post Image

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing how industries do business and promises a significant return on investment (ROI) in operational efficiency, improved customer experience, risk mitigation, and enabling entirely new business models. Further, with increasing global economic and regulatory pressures there is growing demand for IoT solutions to address these challenges. Many IoT projects […]

27 Sep RESEARCH PAPER: Accelerating IT Transformation Through Intelligent Automation In Server Infrastructure

Post Image

Today’s businesses are rapidly transforming to prepare for the changes taking place in the global economy. Consider the following: Between 2006 and 2016, eight of the top U.S. retailers saw their market cap decline by an average of 51 percent with the highest topping out at 96 percent. During this same time, Amazon saw a […]

25 Sep RESEARCH PAPER: Demystifying Server Root of Trust

Post Image

Secure data begins with secure infrastructure. Protecting infrastructure begins with not only making sure it will operate as expected but also with the confidence that all the necessary firmware needed to run the system remains secure. Root of Trust (RoT) is ideally based on a hardware-validated boot process to ensure the system can only be […]

12 Sep RESEARCH PAPER: Dell EMC DSS 9000

Post Image

Innovation in information technology enables the convergence of telecommunications and entertainment business models – distribution and content creation − and creates new monetization opportunities. Megamergers such as AT&T–Time Warner and Verizon–AOL have the potential to redefine entire business segments. However, a key underpinning to this success is the ability for IT organizations to standardize on […]

03 Aug RESEARCH PAPER: Active Alignment Will Be Critical For Future Optical Systems Manufacturing

New usage models and applications for technology products, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, created a need for computers to “see” the outside, physical world. We refer to this as “computer vision”. As these usage models and markets evolve, higher quality imaging systems are needed to enable better optical performance. Consumer expectations for thinner […]

21 Jun RESEARCH PAPER: Power / Performance Determinism

Post Image

Today’s demanding workloads and complex environments leave businesses looking for every ounce of available performance from their systems. While CPU vendors strive to deliver the highest level of performance at all times, CPU manufacturing processes leave some variability that prevents vendors from capitalizing on every last drop of performance in an individual CPU. Because CPU […]

21 Jun RESEARCH PAPER: SPEC CPU 2017 & Changing Performance

Post Image

Benchmarks help determine the relative performance of different platforms, neutralizing technical differences so IT can better ascertain the actual workload impact. The SPEC CPU 2006 benchmark has helped IT generate a relative performance baseline for CPUs across different platforms for over ten years. But being more than a decade old means the benchmark no longer […]

21 Jun RESEARCH PAPER: AMD EPYC Brings New RAS Capability

Post Image

With each new enterprise platform transition, the reliance on technology increases. Today, businesses are looking to strategies like digital transformation to reshape their operations, but these new approaches to business will put more stress and reliance on servers. By digitizing, instrumenting, and capturing untold amounts of data, businesses can get a better handle on their […]
