Server Solutions

Reduce Costs Through Simplified Management and Improved Performance

Today’s server environment is changing-open source platforms, web-based applications, cloud computing and virtualization technologies operate alongside traditional application delivery methods. Consequently, the x86 platform is taking on a larger and more important role in an organization’s application stacks. As a result, preserving the agility and disaster recovery capability of x86 servers must be a top-line business goal. Be sure your x86 environment is ready to take advantage of today’s opportunities and new technology. Maximize performance and minimize costs with Adaptix’s x86 solutions.

What is the challenge?

Once a cost-effective way to expand an IT infrastructure or data center, large colonies of x86 servers have now become a significant drain on financial resources as expenses related to total cost of ownership of this aging technology escalate. With IT management under pressure to cut costs in the short term, improving operating flexibility and performance are a top priority. But, many IT organizations simply do not have the time to keep up with rapidly changing technologies. That’s why finding the right solution provider in a crowded and ever-changing marketplace is more important than ever.
