HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

On Demand For those of you too busy to watch our 'State of the x86 server estate' webcast last week, fret no more - we recorded it for your convenience. You can watch it right here.

During the webcast we consider the state of play in the server room, using recent reader research to understand the forces acting on the x86 server environment, and how organisations are setting about dealing with these challenges. This includes looking at the following trends, techniques and capabilities:

- The currency of server environments, and the perceived management challenges

- Drivers for change, where they are coming from and what impact they are having

- New chipset developments and their enhanced capabilities

- Investment and modernisation plans, and what hurdles are in the way of modernisation

-The impact of x86 server virtualisation

- Management realities in terms of capabilities, and plans for improvement

The bulk of the webcast features the findings of the x86 research we recently undertook with Reg readers, and includes real world anecdotes and scenarios from your peers. We hope you'll find it enlightening.

Tim Phillips from The Register is hosting the event, joined by Jon Collins from Freeform Dynamics and Iain Beckingham, a server expert from Intel. Enjoy. ®
