Moving UNIX Workloads to Windows Server 2008 R2 and Intel's Nehalem EX
Did you know that many companies spend 80% of their IT dollars on maintenance? By implementing proven methodologies to migrate RISC/UNIX-based systems to Intel processor-based servers running Windows Server 2008 R2, costs can be significantly reduced while providing a path to future innovation and growth as we exit the current economic doldrums. Topics include: • Cover the current UNIX/RISC environment and compare/contrast that with the Windows Server 2008 R2 and Intel Nehalam and Nehalam EX-based systems. • The benefits derived from a migration process from RISC/UNIX to the Intel processor-based servers and Windows Server with specific customer scenarios. • Modernization scenarios covered are data migration/BI, application workload migration (specifically SAP and WebSphere) and re-hosting of custom applications. You will leave this session with a better understanding of the tangible benefits from a TCO as well as a productivity perspective in performing a migration from RISC/UNIX to Intel processor-based servers running Windows Server. In addition you will learn several approaches to taking the next steps in modernization as well as access to people and resources to help you take the next step.
