Principled Technologies (PT) report commissioned by Dell EMC, “Get flexible, feature-rich datacenter management at a lower cost” March 2018, comparing Dell EMC FX2 with OpenManage vs. HPE Synergy with OneView. Ibid Principled Technologies performed a detailed look at “fast” in a few virtual environments using Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, Dell EMC Integrations and OpenManage suites. Testing with specific and popular environments was key, so Principled Technologies chose to test with Microsoft System Center and VMware vCenter.These environments are deployed globally across thousands of customers. While hardware can be easily deployed and placed into the infrastructure, without a complete solution that allows IT to configure, deploy and manage within those environments, you could easily waste significant time and effort trying to make it all work – and the premise of “fast” is lost.Getting to “fast” in your environmentsPrincipled Technologies put Dell EMC PowerEdge with OpenManage to the test against HPE Synergy with OneView, and showcased that ”fast” can profoundly impact your time-to-business results: Up to 97% faster and 20 fewer steps than HPE deploying three Microsoft Windows servers with Dell EMC PowerEdge and OpenManage Essentials!When they tested with Microsoft System Center, the results were still impressive:Up to 87% faster and 24 fewer steps than HPE deploying multiple servers with the Dell EMC PowerEdge FX2 with OpenManage Integration for Microsoft System Center Configuration ManagerUp to 46% faster than HPE deploying a single host with Dell EMC PowerEdge FX2 with OpenManage Integration for Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine ManagerLeveraging the Dell EMC OpenManage Integration for Microsoft System Center enabled faster deployments for the business compared to a solution using HPE Synergy with OneView. Furthermore, no additional hardware such as a dedicated PXE server or deployment network was required, resulting in no lost time or additional expense. OpenManage integrates readily with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager to quickly expand a virtual infrastructure.Testing also revealed that configuring, deploying and maintaining Microsoft Windows servers with Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials made standard operations faster:OpenManage Essentials saved over 22 minutes (up to 91% less time) to deploy a single Windows serverDell EMC PowerEdge FX2 with OpenManage Essentials can update firmware for three Windows Servers up to 27% faster than HPE Synergy solution with OneView6 fewer steps than HPE updating firmware for three Windows ServersSimilarly, OpenManage Integrations for VMware vCenter allows IT admins to manage servers directly from within vCenter. Tasks like creating profiles, templates to deploy and firmware updates can easily be done without leaving vCenter. Doing similar tasks with HPE Synergy requires users to exit from the vCenter console. This raises the risk of more user errors with extra steps and time to complete. With vCenter integration, typical tasks take less than 10 steps and under four minutes. Savings like these could shrink time and effort for IT admins compared to using HPE OneView for VMware vCenter with HPE Synergy.Along with Dell EMC Integrations, IT can scale management further with the Dell EMC OpenManage Enterprise suite. The powerful suite helps you simplify, automate and unify management tasks, across a data center with up to thousands of PowerEdge servers.Further, setting up the Dell EMC PowerEdge FX with 14th gen FC640 blades for this environment saved up to 36% on costs including deployment, or a savings of more than $140,000.With time and cost savings, IT can be “fast” and get much more done in Microsoft and VMware environments using Dell EMC FX2 servers, Integrations and OpenManage.The result is “fast” can really work to a company’s advantage, and get you the results you want.“Fast” time-to-business can be an overused term and hard to scope in terms of ROI, but ‘fast” can be achieved. Principled Technologies results show how systems, solutions, and suites that work all together can easily fit into your environment. And this combo can yield great gains. IT gets better control of management. Doing so lets IT quickly turn idle resources and newly installed equipment into working and managed workhorses for your businessWhile your IT and infrastructure may not be bullet-train fast, working with the right systems and solutions can enable your business to get “fast-er” results.To learn more, visit DellEMC.com/Choose-PowerEdge From deployment to management, Principled Technologies put Dell EMC PowerEdge with OpenManage to the test versus HPE Synergy with OneViewLike a bullet train, the term “fast” implies high speed and performance. The term also applies to how quickly a task can be accomplished – helping you stay ahead of your deadlines to meet your goals.The metrics that contribute to whether or not something is ”fast” can vary according to the end results. In business, it is all about expanding in the context of a competitive landscape. Delivering results and improving time-to-market applies to services and products. The engine delivering these metrics for the business is IT.Getting to “fast” IT often means expanding in order to serve existing and new business needs. For IT, speed is critical when buying new products to run business workloads. “Fast” also means managing the ever-growing infrastructure and data center. And now, IT has to get the most out of each resource for the next job, the next application, the next need, and so on. Lastly, ”fast” also helps you integrate new equipment into your specific environment without downtime, hassles, or losing time configuring and waiting.The end result is “fast”-er time-to-business.

This excludes sales from today’s so-called Cyber Monday. According to Amazon, the $259 Kindle is the “most wished for, the most gifted, and the #1 bestselling product across all product categories on Amazon.” Barnes & Noble is also seeing strong demand for its new nook e-reader, but is unable to fulfill current orders before Christmas. The company has also delayed shipments to its stores until December 7.Neither Amazon nor Barnes & Noble have announced any exact numbers for their e-reader sales. At the beginning of the holiday season, many pundits assumed that e-readers would be extremely popular gifts this year. Counterpoint: 7 reasons why e-book readers make lousy gifts this yearJudging from Amazon’s press release, and the fact that the B&N nook is already virtually sold out for the holidays (current orders will ship January 11), it definitely looks like this prediction could come true. In a thinly veiled swipe at the fact that B&N isn’t able to fulfill demand, Amazon’s Ian Freed also notes that a lot of people are buying numerous Kindles at once. We haven’t heard any numbers from Sony yet, but chances are that the Sony Reader Pocket and Touch editions are also doing quite well.

Indian cricketers Virender Sehwag, foreground, and Rahul Dravid run between the wickets during the first day of their first cricket test match against New Zealand, in Ahmadabad on Thursday, November 4, 2010.Harbhajan Singh smashed an attacking career-best eighth half-century as India posted an imposing first innings total of 487 and then snapped two early wickets to wrest initiative on the second day of the opening Test against New Zealand in Ahmedabad on Friday.INDIA VS NEW ZEALAND: SCORECARDThe feisty off-spinner scored 69 in 97 balls with three sixes and five fours to help his team post 487 in their first innings after they were reeling at 412 for 8 post lunch at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera.Indian pace and spin combo of Zaheer Khan and Pragyan Ojha then bowled superbly to snap two early wickets as New Zealand finished the day at 69 for two in 28 overs, still trailing by 418 runs with 8 wickets remaining.India though started the day at a commanding 329 for three but kept losing wickets steadily to the double spin attack of Daniel Vettori, who captured 4 for 118, and Jeetan Patel (3 for 135).However, Harbhajan led a late charge to consolidate the innings before being last out at the stroke of tea by edging rival team captain Vettori to wicketkeeper Gareth Hopkins.Replying to India’s first inning total, the Kiwis started on a shaky note as Zaheer dismissed inexperienced New Zealand batsmen Tim McIntosh and Ojha cleaned up B J Watling cheaply before McCullum and Taylor stemmed the rot.McCullum two-hour vigil was embellished with seven fours, while Taylor had three boundaries in his 18-run innings.advertisementIn the morning, New Zealand fought back gamely with a weakened attack that was without debutant pacer Hamish Bennett, who pulled out due to a groin strain, to dismiss three top Indian batsmen.The hosts lost both the overnight batsmen in Sachin Tendulkar and V V S Laxman and then Suresh Raina as well in the pre-lunch session.Soon after lunch break, the Kiwis added the wickets of captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Zaheer Khan also to their kitty before Harbhajan, whose previous highest was 66 made against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo in 2001, led the late surge.With Ojha (11 in 59 balls) playing the ideal foil, Harbhajan helped India add 66 in 114 balls for the ninth wicket to power the hosts closer to the 500-run mark, they were earlier aiming for.Harbhajan was not afraid to take the bull by its horns after frontline batsmen Tendulkar, Laxman, Raina and captain Dhoni got out quickly on either side of lunch.The Kiwis sent back Tendulkar, Laxman and Raina in the last 25 minutes to dramatically change the complexion of the game. Raina and Laxman were dismissed at the same score of 392 in the space of four balls just before lunch by debutant Williamson and Patel.Tendulkar (40, in 133 balls with five fours), Laxman (40 in 105 balls with four fours), the two unbeaten overnight batsmen, were separated after a stand of 66 runs in 188 balls with Patel accounting for both of them in the last half hour before lunch.Raina (3) was sent back by part-time slow bowler and debutant Kane Williamson as India slipped from 383 for three to 392 for six in just six overs in the last half an hour of the first session. Patel, who looked hardly threatening yesterday, accepted a tame return catch from Tendulkar and then trapped Laxman in front with a spinning ball.Williamson was the other wicket taker before lunch when he had Raina caught at short covers when the batsman pushed firmly off the back foot.New Zealand made further inroads into the Indian innings after lunch as left-arm spinner Vettori, who bowled a marathon spell of 16 overs for 14 runs without taking a wicket in the first session, dismissed Dhoni (10) and Khan (1) in the space of nine balls spread over three overs.Dhoni was caught bat-pad at short leg off a sharply turning ball to which he offered a defensive bat while Khan was beaten totally and bowled by an arm ball that whipped in to reduce the hosts to 412 for 8.At this stage Harbhajan, who came in at the fall of Laxman who fell in the last ball before lunch, found a good partner in Ojha and the duo pulled India past the 450-run mark.Harbhajan swung Patel to the long on fence for a four and a six before flat-batting Vettori for a six and hoisting him over long on to help the Indian total leap in front.The first hour after lunch brought in 49 runs in 17.4 overs before Harbhajan completed the eighth half century of his career, and second against the Kiwis, in 58 balls. It included four hits to the boundary and a couple of sixes.advertisementHe then swung Patel over mid-wicket for a third six after raising the half-century partnership with Ojha in 81 balls.The latter was later rapped on the pads by Patel, his third wicket today after an unsuccessful and costly stint on Thursday.In the morning, in total contrast to Thursday’s opening session when Virender Sehwag, who notched up his 22nd Test century with a dazzling knock of 173 to provide the fireworks ahead of Diwali, the Indian batsmen pussy-footed.With Tendulkar and Laxman content to set their eyes in and with India looking to score over 500 runs at the least, runs came in a trickle with only 29 runs scored off the first 16 overs against New Zealand’s most experienced bowlers Chris Martin and skipper Daniel Vettori, for the most part.The second hour too did not produce sparkling stroke-play as 25 runs came for the loss of three important wickets in the next 14.2 overs. Vettori bowled a tight spell of 16 overs for 14 runs before giving way to Williamson just before the interval.The Kiwis attack was content to keep the runs down with slow left-arm Vettori bowling to a packed off side field.Tendulkar, with the entire country looking forward to him notching up his 50th Test hundred, took 86 balls to add 27 runs to his overnight score before losing his wicket to the off spinner, 25 minutes before lunch. In all, he had a 168-minute stay at the crease.Raina followed suit, caught brilliantly by Brendon McCullum, off the 19th ball he faced.The Kiwis ended the opening session on a high note by dismissing Laxman in the last over. The batsman played forward defensively from the crease but the ball turned in and sneaked its way to hit his pads right in front. He, however, did not look happy to be given out. With inputs from PTI
