The new AMD EPYC processors feature two new distinct modes, power determinism and performance determinism. These modes enable a business to optimize based on greatest overall performance or on greater predictability in clock speed.
After a decade of use, the SPEC CPU benchmark is changing at the same time that new CPUs are hitting the market. This will be an important inflection point as the dynamics of how businesses are changing while at the same time the dynamics of how performance is measured is changing as well.
The new EPIC processor from AMD was designed for the critical environments of both data centers and at the edge as more compute heads that way. With plenty of RAS and availability features, EPYC can tackle the most critical enterprise tasks.
Digital transformation is changing how businesses view their infrastructure, putting them in a position of needing technology to not only solve today’s immediate pressing needs, but also serve them well as they embark on a transformation of their business. Dell EMC understands this and has a new portfolio of PowerEdge servers that can scale to address digital transformation.
Security threats are quickly becoming a top priority outside of the IT organizations as businesses see security as a top hindrance to achieving their business goals. Hewlett-Packard Enterprise has developed its new generation of servers with security in mind, claiming the most secure server available.
As public cloud technologies continue to expand and more businesses see the value in these flexible pools of resources, it is clear that not every workload can live off premises, some will be on-premises in private clouds. Hewlett-Packard Enterprise has a strategy to help businesses navigate through a world of both public and private cloud.
Most servers today have a 20+ year legacy, which can be a hindrance to true flexibility because they are mired in the past. Cisco built its UCS product from a clean sheet of paper, designing a system, not a server, in order to tackle the compute challenges of both today and the future.
SAP applications scale vertically as most x86-based solutions scale horizontally. Lenovo recognizes this challenge and their portfolio of highly scalable systems with massive memory footprints make them an excellent platform for deploying SAP.
As more businesses contemplate a move to the cloud, there are requirements that prevent them from moving all of their applications off-premises. Microsoft Azure Stack can drive consistency across both public and private clouds and Lenovo is one of the first to bring Azure Stack to customers’ datacenters.
Edge compute has become more prevalent as technologies like IoT are beginning to be deployed and more enterprises are becoming more distributed. Hewlett-Packard Enterprise has a strategy to ensure security throughout the chain, from the datacenter to the edge.
