Whitepaper: DR Capacity Harvesting Strategy

by Adaptivity Inc.Oct 01, 2008

Every day IT is being challenged to do more with less. IT needs to eliminate waste wherever it is identified so precious resources can be invested into developing revenue streams and not merely supporting standard operations. To accomplish this, every ounce of compute power needs to be wrung from existing infrastructure.

The largest area of untapped potential remains off limits for exploitation; the resources set aside for Disaster Recover (DR). Entire datacenters filled with equipment, with the sole purpose of business continuity, sit idle. To make matters worse, datacenters are challenged by the space, cooling, and power demands created by server sprawl. The worst contributor to this server sprawl is the deployment of DR capacity. Firms must begin to responsibly harvest these resources to help the business make the best use of scarce capital by circumventing this IT waste.


Whitepaper: Next Generation Datacenter Transformation Strategy

by Adaptivity Inc.Oct 01, 2008

Today�s IT organizations face a dual challenge of "keeping the lights on" while providing "new services" at unprecedented rates with reduced investment support from the business. At the same time the very business model of IT is changing �how applications, content, information, and infrastructure are delivered.

These demands and changes must account for the fact that external facing customer experience and corporate branding, as well as internal operational systems, depends heavily on the datacenter for services. Disruptions in this service can literally induce significant financial losses or even paralyze an organization completely.

One of the biggest barriers to business execution and innovation today is managing datacenter complexity. This forces the largest IT investment spend to be focused on keeping the lights on and containing infrastructure sprawl. To avoid missed expectations and disappointment within the business user community, the enterprise must focus a majority of its time and invest dollars on innovating and differentiating business.


Whitepaper: Business Platform Transformation Strategy

by Adaptivity Inc.Oct 01, 2008

Today�s CIO organizations face a complex array of challenges in managing the Business Platform (the group of applications and services that implement the Business Value Chain). The business perceives technology innovation as a business differentiator, demands application portfolio stability, requires change requests to be handled promptly, experiences growth rates that are often unpredictable and exponential, and exerts continuous pressure to reduce product time to market. Complicating this, these challenges are being made to IT with reduced investment from the business. At the same time the very business model of IT is changing � how applications, content, information, and infrastructure are delivered.

These demands and changes must account for the fact that much of business innovation is enabled by the IT Business Platform. A systematic approach for the continuous improvement of the Business Platform is required to avoid missed expectations and disappointment within the business user community. The more efficient, effective, and relevant the Business Platform is, the more the enterprise can focus its time and invest dollars on innovating and differentiating business.


Whitepaper: Virtual & Dynamic Infrastructure Strategy

by Adaptivity Inc.Oct 01, 2008

The more tightly bound an application is to its underlying platform, the less capital efficiencies are realized. The IT waste associated with under utilized hardware resources has been clearly demonstrated, which in turn has spawned the creation of datacenter consolidation programs that devise ways to more tightly compress the application infrastructure footprint onto existing hardware resources.

Breaking the bonds that tie an application to an instance of an operating system and tie an instance of an operating system to a specific physical server will free resources so that they can dynamically adapt to business needs in real time. This facilitates additional application footprint consolidation and frees resources for other purposes. IT capital is more efficiently utilized and the additional flexibility these measures produce enables significant responsiveness to business drivers.
