Application security programs and practises

Last week we asked you to tell us about your desktop environments. The response was fabulous, with over a thousand people filling in our survey. This week, we want to build a picture of your x86 server environments: what’s working and where are the challenges?

Is today a time of change in the data centre, particularly as we come out of the downturn? We want to know what's really driving demand in the data centre, what kinds of workloads are giving you the most grief, and what, if anything, are you doing about them?

Is power management still an issue, or is that so last year? Most of all perhaps, if you spend your days keeping things up and running, how is it all working for you and how are the service levels you are achieving being perceived? Are you struggling to keep up with demand, or finding, with management tools or technologies such as virtualization, that you're finally able to get the level of flexibility you have been looking for?

A couple of the questions in the survey are a beast, but we wanted to be comprehensive. So please do grab a coffee, get settled and tell us your views by clicking here.

If you have general feedback on the state of your server environment, your current plans or anything else that takes your fancy then let us know in the comments field below.
