IBM Power VM Virtualization Technology on IBM Power7 Systems

This technical white paper presents benchmark results showing greater VM consolidation ratios than demonstrated in previous benchmarks and demonstrating the extent of the performance lead that PowerVM virtualization technologies deliver over x86-based add-on virtualization products. The tests, running two workload benchmarks of different consolidation ratios on POWER7 processor-based and comparable Intel-based systems, demonstrate the exceptional performance and scalability of PowerVM virtualization technologies compared to VMware vSphere1 on an x86-based platform.

How to Benchmark your service desk

All service desks want to know how good they are. But to find out they compare their performance measures to those of the industry. They simply put too much stock in industry-wide benchmarks without an appreciation of all the variables used to construct them.
Instead of misleading measures that compare apples to oranges, the true value of benchmarking comes from within - from tracking internal metrics overtime. Read this white paper by the Service Desk Institute to learn the best ways to benchmark your performance and identify areas of improvement.

Download the white paper to find out:

- The problems with industry benchmarking
- Why true value comes from internal benchmarking
- What performance measures to focus on
- Why all routes should lead to service improvement

Securing Your Software For The Mobile Application Market

In this business guide, we discuss how the latest code signing technology works to secure software code and content for applications that are directly downloaded to mobile devices from the Internet. These applications can come either from the software publisher's or application reseller's websites, or directly from the mobile service provider's network. We will also show why code signing platforms need to be flexible, scalable, user-friendly, and easily adaptable to different mobile operating platforms.

Securing the Mobile Apps Market

The emergence of mobile applications has fundamentally changed the way that millions of people around the world work, play, and communicate. Though the market for mobile apps is still relatively young, it has grown exponentially over the past several years and will continue to expand rapidly. This explosive growth presents a tremendous opportunity for software developers looking to create - and monetize - the next hit app. But developers aren't the only ones looking to profit from the surge in apps - cybercriminals want to infect and exploit as many mobile devices as they can to steal confidential information. Fortunately, developers can protect their code - and their customers - with a straightforward and easy-to-manage technology: code signing certificates. This white paper will detail the rise of mobile applications and why code signing certificates are essential to protecting the entire mobile apps ecosystem.
