Step 1: Proof of Concept Appliance

by Tony D'Ancona | Wednesday, March 04, 2015

Desktop virtualization is one of the hottest buzz words in IT these days, and if you’re like a lot of organizations, you’re considering taking some of your infrastructure virtual. At PC Connection, we offer a number of services to get you started on that journey, from healthcheck services that test the overall efficiency of your infrastructure, to installation services when you’re ready to implement or upgrade. One of the most unique things we offer is our Proof of Concept (POC) Appliance, and I’d like to share a little bit about the benefits of using one of these as step one on your desktop virtualization journey.

The appliance is a self-contained package of everything you’ll need for your desktop virtualization POC: CPUs, memory, storage, networking, thin clients, and all the software components. We work closely with you to create that list of acceptance criteria—what you need to prove with this proof of concept. Understanding the goal is very important.

Windows Server 2003 Migration Reality Check

Some Questions to Ask as You Take Stock of Your Infrastructure

by Dave Olivier | 01.19.15

On July 14, 2015, Microsoft will stop releasing critical patches for Windows Server 2003. Running unsupported software presents significant risks and complications for your business that will only increase in severity as time goes on.

End of support for Windows Server 2003 can have a major impact on your business, so it’s important to take a server migration reality check. End of support means that Microsoft will no longer develop or release any updates for Windows Server 2003, and after support ends applications running on Windows Server 2003 will likely fail to meet compliance standards and regulations.

News Flash—Flash Storage Isn’t As Expensive As You Think

Increase Performance without Increasing Costs

by Kurt Hildebrand | 02.27.15

Flash storage offers dramatically faster performance over traditional spinning magnetic disk storage technology, but many enterprises have postponed adoption of it because of cost concerns. But it’s not as expensive as you think.

“When the storage efficiency techniques and the ability to safely use lower-cost memory are combined, all-flash storage systems can typically match the price of high-performance, tier 1, HDD-based storage systems,” says Storage Switzerland Senior Analyst George Crump. “What’s more, they’re now working their way into the price-band of tier 2 storage systems.”
