Servers

Server optimization provides a way to improve the performance and speed of a server. Server optimization techniques are practiced extensively by companies to meet expectations such as accessibility, availability, and functionality.

Overview

What Is Server Optimization?

Server optimization is a set of methods used to improve data processing efficiency and application configuration, along with the overall performance and speed of the server. Server optimization methods allow companies to maintain a highly efficient and operational application delivery network that functions at an optimal level.

Also, the best practices of server optimization include physical hardware stabilization inside the data center with server virtualization.

Benefits of Server Optimization

The server processes the request and generates a response to the end user’s needs. The speed and performance of such a response procedure depend on the characteristics of the server performance.

Using hardware equipment with powerful features does not always meet expectations, and doesn’t solve all the problems of the server. To meet expectations, server optimization is necessary.

SEI’s Business Case for Optimizing Servers

With improving speed and performance, server optimization techniques help companies achieve their overall business goals. There are a lot of different techniques that help to achieve site speed goals. Server optimization also creates a positive impact on overall site performance, which ultimately affects the company’s reputation with users and customers.

Choosing Between Enterprise and Industry Standard Servers

Sometimes there’s a higher level of classification for servers. Enterprise servers handle the large, mission-critical workloads, while other servers classified as industry standard or commodity servers work for lower-capacity, lower-performance needs. Some applications perform better in a vertical scaling server, while others perform better in a cluster solution. However, in both the scale and cluster approaches, enterprise-class and industry-class can apply.

Today’s evolving technologies, such as Kubernetes, vSphere, Red Hat OpenShift, and hybrid multi-cloud solutions, are applicable and enabled on both enterprise servers and industry-standard servers. The application needs to drive the infrastructure, as these emerging technologies support both equally.

Meeting Business Challenges with Enterprise-Class Servers

Most often, enterprise servers are used to run business-critical, high-performance, high-capacity workloads where reliability is a key factor. Applications such as SAP HANA and EPIC, large databases, and emerging technologies such as Blockchain are good examples of enterprise server use cases.

Enterprise servers can scale up to meet demands and deliver top performance and availability. High-performance servers allow companies to achieve the highest levels of consolidation to reduce server sprawl, ease systems management challenges, and provide advantages over clustered solutions.

Industry Standard and Commodity Servers

Industry-standard and commodity servers are viewed as an economical means of building an optimized data center when workloads do not demand the high-performance or extreme high-capacity infrastructure found in a vertically scaling server. These servers are often deployed in clusters to meet the application requirements, but they are also used as standalone systems if the workload can be contained on a single industry standard server, such as may be the case with smaller or medium application needs.

Industry standard and commodity servers are usually x86-based systems. x86 servers are also the servers of choice when building a Linux or Microsoft Windows data center for running smaller databases or open-source applications that provide optimized value in a clustered implementation. They can also serve as a foundation for virtualization and cloud infrastructures.
