Applications Performance Equals Response Time, not Resource Utilization

Transaction rate, an average response time goal, and an allowable upper bound, combined with transaction rate will come to define performance and capacity. These new metrics will get monetized allowing applications owners to shop for price/performance curves across internal and external service providers on a rational and economic basis.

The ROI for Server Virtualization with Business Critical Applications

The ROI from virtualizing tactical applications is driving by the consolidation in the number of physical servers needed once tactical workloads are virtualized. However, when virtualizing Tier 1 or business critical applications, it is likely that significant consolidation in the number of cores per workload is not possible – leading to the requirement to find a new way to cost justify these projects.
