Building a Powerful, Resilient, Affordable IT Infrastructure IBM eX5 and VMware Virtualization Solutions for Small and Midsize CompaniesJanuary 31, 2011 10:00 am | by IBM
VMware vSphere takes virtualization to the next level. VMware vSphere is a next-generation virtualization platform that enables businesses to deliver efficient, reliable, and flexible IT.
Virtualization plays a major role in driving improvements in SAP landscapes. IBM System x and BladeCenter servers with eX5 Technology offer customers benefits including higher utilization, reduced maintenance costs, easier administration and faster response to changing business needs.
This IDC white paper highlights how IBM eX5 systems with MAX5 memory technology play a significant role in increasing the value of memory dense servers

Paper written by Clabby Analytics discussing the benefits of a big-picture IT optimization plan that includes consolidation, virtualization, workload management, automated process flow and optimized service delivery needs.
VMware & IBM paper for small and midsize companies, System x, BladeCenter, and VMware virtualzation solutions offer cost-effective options for transforming IT into a simple more powerful computing infrastructure. Look to IBM and VMware to show you how you can be distinctly competitive and profitable.
If IT and Facilities could work collaboratively, organizations can operate more efficiently and effectively while still meeting their business objectives. That's why Eaton® is partnering with organizations that develop IT management systems to create an integrated approach to energy management. This white paper describes how a joint monitoring and management solution links IT assets, the data center infrastructure and Facilities assets into a holistic perspective aligned with business processes.
Using digital control in power supplies is considerably more flexible than analog control in its ability to adapt to changes and digital control inside the power supply results in advantages to the system application such as improved efficiency, fewer external components and reduced overall cost.
Virtualization can deliver dramatic benefits for data centers, but it can also stress the underlying support infrastructure. Power and cooling systems—which may have been quite sufficient for pre-virtualization needs—could easily become inadequate when data center performance patterns are radically altered. This paper describes some of power challenges related to virtualization—and the readily available technologies to address them.
Power distribution units (PDUs) are vital to the management of power to IT arrays and have evolved from a simple panel of switches and outlets to designs that can now be considered "intelligent" through the inclusion of internal processing capabilities.
Through a combination of integrated hardware and software components, ARM TrustZone* technology provides the basis for a highly-protected system architecture targeted specifically at securing consumer products such as mobile phones, PDAs, set-top boxes or other systems running open Operating Systems (OS), such as Symbian OS, Linux and Windows CE.
A number of options are available to facilities professionals looking to improve cooling efficiency and reduce resources consumed by their data centers. Beyond implementing basic measures such as sealing moisture out of the data center and improving air flow, aisle containment to prevent the mixing of hot and cold air stands out as a method that can dramatically reduce energy costs, minimize hot spots and improve the carbon footprint of data centers.
Demystifying Embedded Code Storage: Optimizing for lower cost and higher performance through balanced XIPJanuary 28, 2011 1:16 pm | by Numonyx
Embedded system designers have a variety of code execution methods to choose from: eXecute-In-Place (XIP), Fully Shadowed and Demand Paging. Using the best method is the key for a cost-effective solution. Each method has different implications in terms of RAM and Flash usage which directly affect the cost of the system.
This white paper examines the various current source topologies that can be implemented to design drivers for LED-backlit LCDs, the advantages and disadvantages of each, and how they can be used in combination with new current source designs to develop new multiple-string LED driver topologies.
