The First Step in the RISC-to-IA Migration
The migration from expensive legacy RISC platforms to lower-cost commodity Intel® Xeon®- based servers is not a trivial effort, but it need not be so daunting that staying on the expensive RISC server is a reasonable alternative. What makes this migration process challenging is as much the alternative approaches as the actual process.
RISC-to-IA Migration Rising to Proof of Concept
Running a Proof of Concept (PoC) may seem like a slam dunk. You know your application, you know your users and it should be easy to test the application out on new hardware. How do we avoid PoC failure? How do we get it done without analysis paralysis?
