The popularity and ease of deployment of Microsoft SQL Server has led to the proliferation of SQL Server databases throughout many businesses. In some cases, departments have often been able to install and deploy their own databases without necessarily going through the normal controls of the IT organization. This type of approach is no longer tenable.

Organizations, large and small, need to be able to centrally manage their SQL Server environments to ensure that company-wide information is current and shared where needed throughout the organization. Reducing database sprawl is also essential to putting in place the processes to ensure that critical information is secure, properly backed up, fully compliant and available on time to those who need access to it and can act upon it, whether employees, managers, customers or partners.

The latest generation of HP ProLiant G7 servers combines intuitive, integrated technologies and easy-to-use software with AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series processors to help administrators optimize workloads, accelerate virtualization and process more data in less time.

This slideshow will explore the ways that HP ProLiant G7 servers change the economics of server purchasing decisions and explore how these servers can help businesses with some of the virtualization projects they will be considering in the near future.

The Power of Virtualization — Beyond Server Consolidation It's a simple notion: having fewer servers means a lower power footprint. That's one of the top motivations driving enterprises to server virtualization. But it's not enough to just consolidate IT resources and run more virtual machines on that smaller footprint. IT also needs to proactively manage power capacity to maximize the efficiencies gained through virtualization. This white paper discusses the benefits of combining power distribution and supply components with management software to automatically track new server installations and provide higher precision, control and automation to power distribution.

Scaling the Promise of Virtualization — Less is More with Server VirtualizationMany enterprises are consolidating to fewer physical servers by creating more and more virtual machines. This growing phenomenon and the need to implement next-generation IT technologies — such as advanced analytics and scalable Web — is generating demand for more robust servers with enhanced performance. Increased core density and memory scalability are the keys to seamlessly handling those increased workloads. Read this white paper to learn how more robust servers based on industry-leading 16-core processors can provide the performance and scalability to address increasing workloads, with a lower overall power and thermal footprint.

Virtual Performance Matters — Virtualization Challenges Doing more with less is a key imperative for most IT organizations, hence the growing reliance on server virtualization. But without the right management tools, virtualized servers can quickly sprawl out of control and overrun IT's ability to manage them effectively. As organizations look to virtualization as the road to greater consolidation and scalability, read this white paper to discover the recipe for managing virtualization performance: hardware that satisfies growing demands and the ability to effectively meet expectations, along with an integrated management software solution to proactively monitor server health, performance and power usage.
