Blade Servers: Ready for Business Critical Applications?

Output

Summary

The IDC predict that by 2009 Blade Servers will have a 25% unit share in the European server market. This increase may be down to the many benefits provided by Blade Servers such as cost cutting and greater business agility. But with a lack of standards, the high initial costs involved and reliability issues are you willing to take the plunge now and move business critical applications onto blade servers? How do you select, test and deploy the right solution without falling foul to one of its vulnerabilities?

Workshops

Workshops are the backbone of The Forum. Nothing can compare to a group of IT professionals debating and exchanging experience of a specific, defined topic in a confidential environment.
