February 03, 2011 09:00 AMThere was a time when single-tasking data center equipment was all the rage. CPU cycles and RAM were at a premium, so it made sense to design equipment that did one thing and did it well. Intel has exploded this old assumption thanks to the continual proliferation of transistors according to Moore's Law: Today's processors, network adapters and buses have CPU cycles to spare, and most data center equipment is turning to software for differentiation.
February 03, 2011 08:00 AMCarnival Cruise Lines has swapped out aging EMC Symmetrix storage (and Sun servers) for Dell EqualLogic SAN storage and PowerEdge servers, racking up savings of 7,000 hours per year for its shipboard IT staff.

Other storage companies that were evaluated included LeftHand, 3Par, NetApp and Compellent.

June 03, 2010 10:38 AMProtecting information and corporate assets has always been a tricky business, and today's computing environment just adds to the complexity. Remote offices and mobile users need just as much protection, and possibly more, than headquarters employees who sit behind carefully constructed layers of defense. SaaS applications and public cloud deployments mean sensitive data travel outside traditional network boundaries. And the Web presents a never-ending fountain of malware.
