As Bruce Eric wrote a few days ago, the March 2009 issue of Dell Power Solutions Magazine is out of the gate, and available in Print Edition, Web Edition and new Digital Edition form factors, featuring in-depth coverage on Systems Management Simplified with the new Dell Management Console Powered by Altiris from Symantec.
If you're not a regular reader of this publication, I'd encourage you to take a look at this issue and sign up for a complimentary subscription so you can read it regularly (my personal preference would be for you to minimize your carbon footprint and get the digital edition, plus you’ll get an e-mail invite for instant access as soon as the next issue is ready).
The cover story in this issue, “Systems Management Simplified,” provides details on how the Dell Management Console (DMC) redefines much of the traditional systems management paradigm through a single-pane-of-glass view of computing infrastructure, as well as a guided tour of key features.
Also in this issue are three additional drill-down technical articles on DMC, exploring how the console embraces IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) principles, best practices for smoothing migration, and approaches to managing operating systems and applications.
Among other key editorial content in the 100+ pages of this issue:
- Four late-breaking case studies from Dell customers around the world on recent blade server deployment successes, including Betagro Public Company Limited (Thailand), M Dados (Portugal), American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (United States), and Tora Trading Services (Japan);
- Dr. Albert Esser, vice president of power and data center infrastructure solutions at Dell, goes on the record in this interview: “Compute More, Consume Less (Power): Smart Policies Unleash Data Center Productivity”;
- Guidance on virtualization with Dell servers and Dell EqualLogic iSCSI storage: “Integrating Virtualized Servers with VMware vStorage-enabled Dell EqualLogic SANs” and “Advancing Integration of Microsoft Hyper-V and Dell EqualLogic Virtualized SANs.”
In addition to the customary Print Edition and Web Edition versions, our new Digital Edition enables instant access to the same editorial content in an elegant book-reader form factor from any Web browser. You can subscribe to the Digital Edition, or test-drive a sample issue.
The next issue of Dell Power Solutions—June 2009— will be on the street and Web in very early June and will feature much more content around the recent Dell Efficient Enterprise Portfolio launch.
I encourage you to check back on the Web Edition site for fresh editorial content as it becomes available in the coming days and weeks prior to publication of the June issue.
